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.
