Killer Queen, the first fragrance from Katy Perry made under the license of Coty (and the third one, when you consider Purr and Meow), gets its limited edition for spring/summer 2014. Killer Queen Oh So Sheer is an airy sweet floral - fruity fragrance designed for warm days and good mood.
Perfumer Laurent Le Guernec, who also developed the original, is responsible for this creation. The fragrance opens with juicy wild berries (which include mulberry and elderberry), black current and dark plum. The heart is made of velvet red flower, jasmine, freesia and plumeria. Kashmir wood, liquid praline, caramel and patchouli give the intensity and sweetness to the composition.
The bottle and packaging design follows the original, done in soft violet color. The fragrance is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

I don’t particularly love Katy Perry but the notes in this perfume sounded impossible to resist. I searched the local chemists but none seemed to have it in stock at the time, and as fortune would have it a PR email landed in my inbox and I was able to call in a sample for consideration and review (let me point out that it’s a rare event that I accept product for review).
I first spritzed this on my wrist yesterday afternoon and my first impressions were juicy fizzy berries, mixed with caramel, then some jasmine and freesia in the background. It somehow manages to combine some of the best aspects of the floral, fruity and gourmand families.
The notes of berries, caramel, freesia and jasmine combined to remind me of a delicious fairy floss sweet but airy and light on the tongue, I could almost taste it.
It’s really a lovely scent, with great lasting power (over eight hours on me) and I’d say if you enjoy perfumes such as Prada Candy and Lolita Lempicka, then this is one to definitely give a whirl. Be quick though because this darling is limited edition and I imagine the Katy Perry fangirls are already all over it!
