Katy Perry’s Purr now in Dubai
If you ask us, cats aren’t the most ideal inspiration for anything related to the olfactory sense. While adorably fuzzy, cats are more ammonia than vanilla and let’s face it, we haven’t heard of a fragrance with a top note of ammonia.
But if there’s someone who could make the idea of nice-smelling cats plausible, it would be Katy Perry. Actually, our first bet would have been Lady Gaga, but then she’s all caught up in that blood-and-other-body-fluids-containing perfume of hers so having Ms. Perry do the honours isn’t such as a terrible idea.
Purr is a sweet, floral musk with top notes of peach nectar, green bamboo and forbidden apple – yes, apparently it does exist – based on vanilla orchid, white amber and creamy sandalwood. L’essence de Katy is housed in a purple feline bottle with jewelled eyes and that ever-present etched heart charm which the perfume industry should consider getting rid of entirely.
Purr by Katy Perry is available exclusively at Sephora stores across the Middle East from AED 170 for a 50mL bottle. Sephora can be found at Dubai Festival City, the Dubai Mall and the Dubai Marina Mall in the UAE.
