Katy Perry Reveals Perfume Name Inspiration
It's been more than two months since we heared about Katy Perry's latest fragrance release [read more here] - but now we know the story behind it... Katy Perry revealed that her inspiration behind her latest fragrance 'Killer Queen' is in fact Freddie Mercury!
“Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be,” Perry explained.
“She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in. I named my company Killer Queen after those lyrics.
The fragrance itself has taken a whole new angle too, taking on a more mature, vanilla-ish scent.
I feel like, after all this time, it was appropriate to use that name in association with something I did. I feel like I’m falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted.”
"Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song 'Killer Queen' by Queen."
She adds: "Killer Queen is powerful, edgy, sophisticated — and that's exactly where I'm trying to be now with my music.
There were two different aspects in creating the fragrance. It's almost like [using] two different parts of your brain — the packaging and bottle and marketing, but essentially all that doesn't matter unless you have the juice."
