Why the exclamation mark in the title? Because this new fragrance is called “Meow!” Yes, with the exclamation mark attached.
Despite having tried a few solid celebrity perfumes, I’m always a little bit skeptical whenever I see a new one. Maybe it’s the fact that the notes all sound the same, or maybe it’s the fact that the majority of the ones I’ve tried have been overpoweringly sweet. Maybe it’s just because it’s a celebrity perfume, and that causes me great anxiety. Whatever it is, I fully admit to being biased!
The good news is, one of my friends gave me Purr for my birthday last year, and I actually quite like it. While the perfume isn’t my signature scent, by any means, I do pull it out from time to time to enjoy it’s fruity-floral notes. On me, it’s a relatively balanced affair, not too fruity and just sweet enough, plus I love the cat bottle to pieces. So let’s see if “Meow!” (which comes in a pink version of the original cat bottle) will slink its way into my good graces.
In partnership with Gigantic Parfums, “Meow! by Katy Perry” is a companion piece to the recording artist’s first fragrance, “Purr,” which debuted a year ago. Perry created ‘Meow!” while on her “California Dreams” World-Tour promoting her platinum-selling second record, Teenage Dream.This rich sister scent is a wearable interpretation of the fun, sensual spirit of the tour.
“Meow!” commands a soft sexuality appropriate for use during any time of day. Its signature comes from a pairing of honeysuckle and pear with the backdrop of creamy vanilla, musk, and amber.
“Meow! is my second baby in the fragrance world. I created it during my California Dreams Tour, and I can’t wait for people to be able to experience my intriguing, amusing, candy-land like fantasy whenever they spritz it!” explains Perry.
Personally, I love honeysuckle and pear in my perfumes, and am secretly hoping that the vanilla won’t overpower the former two. We shall see what we shall see! *mysterious smile*
The EDP is available now, exclusively at Nordstrom.
