Katy Perry wanted her latest fragrance Killer Queen to create "a lasting impression".
The singer launched her third fragrance Killer Queen this year and couldn't be prouder of it. It contains notes of patchouli and wood and the star has given some tips on how best to use it.
"I wear fragrances every day. I never douse myself in a fragrance; I spray then waltz into it!" she laughed to British newspaper The Telegraph.
"I believe that your sense of smell is helpful in creating a lasting impression or a memory. Often, my first memory is based on a scent. My first boyfriend would wear Acqua di Gio by Armani. To this day if anyone gets near me, whether they come into an elevator or I am meeting them for the first time and they are wearing Acqua di Gio, I can spot it. And it just brings me back to when I was 16."
Katy hopes others find her new scent as empowering as she does. She worked hard to make it smell "strong" and in the accompanying promotional material the 28-year-old star is dressed as a monarch.
"I'm very obsessed with the idea of a monarchy, and the ability for a woman to be the head position. I love that idea and I think it's very empowering," the star explained.
Katy also chatted about her changing style, which has seen her have pink, blue, purple and black hair. She also mixes up her fashion choices, sometimes going for cute options and channelling a sexy vibe in other instances.
There are several stars the singer thinks always get it right when it comes to style. She has always looked up to No Doubt's Gwen Stefani and would love for some of her quirky cool to rub off on her.
"She has her own sense of style, she's a creator, she is chic while still being still kind of punk rock about all of it," Katy explained.
