Killer Queen by Katy Perry Eau de Parfum Review

Killer Queen by Katy Perry Eau de Parfum

This September the striking new Killer Queen by Katy Perry Eau de Parfum ($59) launched for the Fall 2013 season. Killer Queen by Katy Perry is the third fragrance the singer has released and is apparently completely different from prior releases she’s done.

“Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song ‘Killer Queen’ by Queen,” recalls Katy Perry to WWD recently. “Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in. I named my company Killer Queen after those lyrics. I feel like, after all this time, it was appropriate to use that name in association with something I did. I feel like I’m falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted.”

Kay explains, “When I was creating Killer Queen, I was really inspired by the idea of a strong, confident woman in power and that is exactly what I hoped to put into this fragrance, something that brings out the power inside of you.”

I’m a massive Queen fan and one of my favorite songs from the brand happens to be Killer Queen so I admit this was a key selling point of the fragrance for me.

Let’s take a look at the Killer Queen by Katy Perry Eau de Parfum.

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum Review

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum

Ok, so, unfortunately I’m not the Muse in Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum. I wish I was but I’m not. Oh woe is me. However, Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum is still a fitting fragrance for a muse like myself….!

Modern Muse is actually all about powerful women. The strong ones, the confident ones, that one’s that embrace their individual styles and take on the world with strength. The Modern Muse is an independent spirit who possesses a natural magnetism that draws people in, inspires them with her smile, and speaks to them without saying a word. She is memorable, a force of creative energy, a true inspiration to others.

I’d like to think I inspire your beauty lemmings from time to time so allow me to feed those lemmings with the introduction of Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum.

Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist Review

Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist Fall 2013

Benefit Bathina Soft to the Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist makes an appearance this Summer for soft, silky skin. Don’t get me wrong I love me some Benefit Crescent Row Fragrances but I have a super soft spot in my heart for Bathina.

Bathina was probably one of my first experiences with Benefit! I was drawn in by her retro vintage pin up girl look! As a fan of Bettie Page and Dita Von Teese it’s easy enough to fall in love with Bathina isn’t it?

Bathina returns this year in the form of a new body oil mist! If you love Benefit Maybe Baby (I miss B Spot bring it back, bring it back!) I think you’ll adore this new mist.
