Katy Perry releases ad for new fragrance, Royal Revolution

I know I said I wasn’t super fond of celebrity fragrances yesterday, but I forgot to mention that I really liked Katy Perry‘s Killer Queen. It doesn’t smell drugstore-y at all (which I guess is why higher-end retailers like Nordstrom agreed to sell it), it’s warm and spicy and lasts a long time. I’m into it – so I’m curious as to how good KP’s newest scent, Royal Revolution, is going to smell.

Royal Revolution is coming out later this summer, and according to her website, it’s an “irresistible floral fragrance [that] conquers at first breath with notes of pink freesia, mystical blackthorn, jasmine and vanilla orchid.” Hmm, sounds like a potential disaster, but I’ll give it a go.

Katy tends to be hit or miss when it comes to her perfume. I thought the Purr/Meow releases were just awful. We’ll see how this one goes. I will say, however, that while the bottle shape is pretty and creative and all that, it’s sort of idiotic – you can’t even stand the damn thing up because of it.
