Katy Perry Royal Revolution


The first scent I ever bought with my own money was Glow by J-Lo. I'm sure a lot of girls of my age will have fond memories of their favourite celebrity fragrance as a teenager. Katy Perry has launched into the fragrance world and her 3rd scent, Royal Revolution, is a lovely departure from the overly sweet teenager targeted fragrances from yester year. 

Firstly, the bottle of Royal Revolution is stunning. Somewhat akin to  my favourite Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf, the diamond shaped bottle looks stunning on my dresser. All of Katy Perry's perfumes come in the same bottle which is made from different coloured glass to match with the theme of the scent. The fragrance itself is very grown-up. The top notes of pink freesia and pomegranate fuse well with the sandalwood, musk and vanilla undertones. Black Thorn is used in the fragrance- this was historically used in spells and potions and provides the mystical element to the scent. The fragrance dries to a very wearable smell which would be suitable for day or night. The marketing campaign plays on the "strong female" character and it's easy to see why. The fragrance is perfect for ladies who love a powerful scent which will get you noticed. I can imagine my mum wearing this as she is a fan of many different vanilla and musk perfumes from brands such as Jo Malone and Chloe.

Don't disregard celeb fragrances- this one has truly surprised me.

Katy Perry Royal Revolution is available in stores now.
