About this deal

It smells quite mature, only to be worn by men and women that truly know how to carry themselves and their sex appeal.

These are twins in a way, with Purr being the violet-gardenia (Gardenia Noire), and Meow being the orange blossom/citrus-gardenia (Gardenia Blanche). Hearkens to mind the black and white film, 'The Mask of Zoro' from 1940 set in Nueva California with Tyrone Powers and Linda Darnell. The fragrance opens with peach, forbidden apple, gardenia and green bamboo with the heart of jasmine, pink freesia and Bulgarian rose and the base of vanilla orchid, creamy sandalwood, white amber, coconut and musk. I don’t personally associate Purr with beach or tropical scents, and would describe it as more sweet and relatively safe but unmemorable, although I find the dry down a bit unpleasantly synthetic.On my skin this is gone within 20-30 minutes, as in I am sniffing hard to find even the slightest note. Every time i think its a so so fragrance i just put it away and let the molecules readjust to the minnesota weather and after awhile the magic is back! Im 39, and prefer complex, layered scents in other words, I dont wish to smell like a cupcake or cotton candy. Perfumes with natural ingredients often smell different in batches based on the source of the ingredients, while synthetic ingredients usually have consistency in their smell and lasts longer. I know that a million people can trash this along with others for being "unoriginal" or mass produced, or celebrity (cheap, not complex).

Milkshake' may be a bit misleading however, although the gardenia gives a creaminess this is more a heady floral than gourmand, with a faint sun-tan vibe from the gardenia-coconut. I smell peach, bamboo, coconut, and then vanilla, which gives it that sweet and creamy touch, but it’s not prominent. Purr has the same luscious, delightful characteristics of Houbigant's Lutece without the heavy, powdery note. You do get more or less what the note list suggests and it's reasonably natural smelling, especially for a "celebuscent. Im over the moon in love with life when im wearing this because the fragrance is so very well done, i just cant say enough to explain how truly beautiful this perfume is.

I don't mean this in a negative way as I do quite like Purr, however I did find this under-wealming coming from a celebrity like Katy Perry. but after a day or 2 it's scent and silage changed a lot to something much sweeter and more rosy aroma but still retains it's strong smell this time better. Maybe I got an older bottle or something but the reviews were great so I figured the supplier was legitimate.

I got Meow first and love it even though it has lot of dense coconutty type vanilla sweetness for a very long period. Dark purple, solidly comforting feel in my hand, crystal eyes, and a cat's head that you rip off to spray yourself with its fluid insides. But I can also understand sweet smells seem to be dominant among celebrity perfumes and bargain finds.

I consider myself all grown up and like my sickly sweet bargain finds ;) I don't care who it comes from, be them a pop singer or whoever. It's a little too fruity to be a vintage powdery scent, but it's not far off during the drydown, which seems to last a good while. I got it today from my husband as a late birthday gift and because of the reviews here i was ready to be disappointed, but i actually like Purr.
