Today I share my review of the recently released * Katy Perry Mad Potion. Katy’s past few fragrances have all been part of her Killer Queen line, however this fragrance has moved away from that and is packaged in a ‘potion’ shaped bottle, to go with the name. Cased in a frosted bottle with a purple glittery plastic lid, while I do like cute packaging, this is my least favourite of the Katy Perry perfume packaging. My favourite will always be the cat shaped bottles of ‘Purr’ and ‘Meow’
Top notes: Vanilla Orchid, Apple Musk, Peonies
Middle notes: Bourbon Vanilla, Jasmine
Base notes: Vanilla, Musk, Amber
* Katy Perry Mad Potion has a balance of vanilla and sweet floral notes and while vanilla features heavily throughout, what comes through the most also is musk and Jasmine. It is more floral than gourmand, but you can still very much tell the vanilla is there. I have worn it on a fairly warm day, but unfortunately it doesn’t have the best staying power, disappointing for a mid range Eau De Parfum. That said, it is a great everyday fragrance that is not too overpowering.
* Katy Perry Mad Potion is available from Priceline, My Beauty Spot, Chemist Warehouse and selected pharmacies.
I will be creating a makeup look inspired by Katy Perry’s promotional material for the perfume shortly
