Are you a fan of Katy Perry? I am. I love that she's ballsy and stands up for herself. I love that she makes mistakes (Russell Brand and John Mayer to name a few!) but comes out the other side a better person. I love that she wears sparkly, pretty costumes on stage and dyes her hair every colour of the rainbow. I love her music (lucky, because my son is obsessed with 'Roar', so it's on high rotation!). But most of all, I love that she's not Miley Cyrus.
I already own two Katy Perry fragrances; Meow! which comes in a cute kitty-shaped bottle, and the more upmarket Killer Queen Royal Revolution, housed in a gorgeous blue gem-shaped bottle. I was recently sent her new perfume Mad Potion* to try, and I've been wearing it every day since. Mad Potion is proving to be a cute little bottle of fun! Unlike some strong scents, it doesn't trigger my headaches, because it's light and quite subtle to wear. I appreciate being able to spritz on a scent that's not overpowering, especially now the weather's warming up and I want to feel fresh and not weighed down by a heavy fragrance. Mad Potion is an oriental musk with a bewitching mix of vanillas. It's a lovely fresh scent perfect for the start of Spring. This magical elixir consists of......
Top - Tahitian Vanilla Orchid, Apple Musk and Pink Peonies
Heart - Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, Creamy Musk and Jasmine Petals
Base - Mexican Vanilla Bean Absolute, Magical Musk and Glowing Amber
The perfume bottle design is pretty cute! It's shaped like a little magical potion bottle with a round plastic purple and sparkly silver glitter pull-off lid. The bottle itself is frosted glass and it's the product inside that's coloured bright pinky-purple! This reminds me of Lady Gaga's 'Fame' perfume, which is a black liquid. I know it's a gimmick, but I still find it exciting to spray on a coloured fragrance, even though the tiny amount that comes out means you can't really make out the hue on your skin anyway. I guess it makes it pretty clear (or purple!) how much product is left in the bottle, though!
Mad Potion is a fun, pleasant scent, subtle and versatile enough to wear for any occasion, from an office job, to the shopping mall or a day at the beach. I feel like this one would be perfect for teenage girls. It gives off a playful, young, whimsical vibe. It's a pretty pinky-purple colour, there's a glitter lid and basically I can't help but smile when I pick it up. If you're a member of the Priceline Sister Club, you may have received a sample card of Mad Potion in the mail recently (see photo below). Be sure to swipe it on and see how it wears on you!
Katy Perry's Mad Potion Eau de Parfum is available from Priceline, Myer, Chemist Warehouse and selected pharmacies and retails for $39 (30mls), $49 (50mls) and $69 (100mls).
