Katy Perry - Killer Queen l Perfume Review

I picked this up online in the Boots sale on Christmas Eve. Katy Perry' Killer Queen perfume is one of those I've seen knocking around on most people's chest of drawers or blog posts. I jumped at the chance to try this, when it was on offer for just a little over £11.00 for the gift set, which is a complete bargain.

The gift set came with this descent sized 30ml bottle, shower gel and body lotion both with 75ml worth of product - fantastic sizes for that weekend away.

Heart notes

Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumeria, Natural Jasmine Sambac.

Top notes

Dark Plum, Wild Berry, Bergamot.

Base notes

Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart, Liquid Praline.

The fact that this launched just in time for the Autumn/Winter 13 was perfect, this perfume is great for these seasons passing with a playful, musky scent that's somewhat girly yet fantastic for those who prefer a more grown up scent. It's fruity, yet floral leaving a gorgeous subtle fun scent which is floriental. It's not the most long lasting scent, you'll definitely need a top up come midday but the scent overall overcomes that little negative. 

The bottle it's self is absolutely gorgeous and different to the usual. It does lie down, which people may not like due to it taking up more room then your standard up facing one - not much of a problem with the 30ml bottle (this a great size and takes pride on my cupboard top). I think the name fits perfectly with the bottle, it's got that hot headed feel to it with it's red shades that go dark and the crown lid gives that queen inspired look.


  1. I haven't seen this before. I definitely would not recognise this as a Katy Perry perfume either, the bottle is so much more grown up than the kitten ones. This sounds like quite a nice fragrance to me, I like the fact that it doesn't contain musk.

    1. It does have a more grown up feel to it, but it's a lovely girly scent without taking the sophistication out of it. I've never smelt the other two though x

  2. I love this perfume too! Nice review ^.^

  3. I really like this scent too, smelt it in a magazine only though lol, xoxo.

    1. You can pick them up real cheap online if you ever want to treat yourself xx
