Katy Perry Killer Queen Oh So Sheer* Review

It's no secret that I was a big fan of Katy Perry's Killer Queen perfume so I was more than excited when her newest Killer Queen instalment, Oh So Sheer*, arrived at my door. Looking much like Killer Queen, Killer Queen Oh So Sheer* has the same unique perfume bottle inspired but a Queen's sceptre, though this time in purple to reflect the floral, more delicate tones of this fragrance.

Keep reading to see what I think of Katy Perry's Killer Queen Oh So Sheer*. 

The scent is a lot sweeter than the original Killer Queen fragrance and, to me, it's a bit more youthful. Killer Queen Oh So Sheer* is a more floral scent that is said to be 'inspired by a modern and ethereal ultra-feminine bouquet'. The notes in Killer Queen Oh So Sheer* are as follows -
Top Notes: Purple plum, mulberry, blackberry and elderberries
Middle Notes: Purple Freesia, rainbow plumeria, red velvet flower and purple lilac
Base Notes: Cashmere, natural patchouli heart and liquid praline


As you can see from the notes of the perfume, it is quite a sweet and berry based scent, something that is always a winner in my books. If you compare the two Killer Queen fragrances, you'll notice that they both have the base notes of cashmere, natural patchouli heart and liquid praline. For that reason, they both have similar undertones, but are different and unique enough to be two beautiful stand alone fragrances. 

Katy Perry's Killer Queen Oh So Sheer* has amazing lasting power. I can often smell it at the end of a work day, especially if the wind is blowing past me. It's fresh enough for every day wear and I think it'll transition nicely into the cooler weather (though I can't see that coming any time soon!). 

If you smelt the Killer Queen by Katy Perry and though it was a little too heavy, you're going to love Killer Queen Oh So Sheer*. If you haven't smelt Killer Queen but are quite fond of sweet and light perfumes with great lasting power, this is a definite winner! 

Killer Queen Oh So Sheer* by Katy Perry has been available since February 7. It retails for $59.00 for 100mL and is available at Myer, Priceline and Chemist Warehouse stores, as well as selected pharmacies Australia wide. Like I always say, if you're not sure if you'll like it, I recommend heading to Myer to grab a sample. I've found that the sales assistants are normally more than happy to oblige 
 Have you tried the latest scent in the Katy Perry empire, Killer Queen Oh So Sheer*? If so, what did you think?


*This product was sent to me, however all opinions are my own. I was not paid for this review

  1. When I smelt Killer Queen, I thought for sure I was going to buy it but now that this one is out I will have to have a sniff and see which I prefer! Aah I might end up with both! :P I absolutely adore the bottle though, it's so beautiful!

    1. They're both beautiful and different enough that I definitely think you can justify both. X

    1. I feel the same, Jasmine, and I honestly don't remember why I decided to say yes. I'm really glad I did though because it's absolutely beautiful. Head out and have a sniff if you can! X

  4. I'm desperate to try this - sounds right up my street! The bottle is so cute too. Pity I'm on a perfume hiatus after overindulging in one too many recently...
