Purr by Katy Perry is a fragrance created by American singer Katy Perry and Gigantic Parfums.

Conception[edit]

Katy Perry chose to release her own signature fragrance, Purr,[1] to add a personal touch[vague] and compete with other celebrities' perfumes.[2] She mentioned in an interview that she created the product because she loves cats.[3]

Packaging and scent[edit]

The bottle was influenced by her Catwoman stage costume.[2]

Release[edit]

Following the theme of the bottle's design, Purr's feline-inspired print advertisements featured Perry posing provocatively in a purple and pink cat suit.[1][4] While she was shooting the commercial advert for Purr, the television show Extra conducted a behind-the-scenes interview with Perry about the design of the bottle.[5] Purr was launched in November 2010 in the United Kingdom, where it was available exclusively at London's Selfridges store for one week, ahead of a national roll-out beginning November 20.[1]


Reception[edit]

Monthly teen magazine Seventeen called Purr's bottle design "cute".[6] Miriam Lacey of Popsugar's spin-off website BellaSugar gave the perfume a favorable review and said it smelled "like a fancier, less chemical-laden version" of fruit-scented body sprays. In her review, Lacey also called Purr an "upside-down" fragrance, because unlike most perfumes which "open with their prettiest notes and then end with a relatively generic bottom accord", Purr has a "really nice caramel and sweet patchouli dry down that fans of Angel will adore, but to get there, you have to sit through a bunch of fruity opening notes". Lacey observed that its scent only lasted about 2 hours; she thought it would be better to spray it onto your hairbrush, "since the oils on your scalp will help it last longer".[7]
