Katy Perry Killer Queen Oh So Sheer EDT

Back in November I reviewed Katy Perry's Killer Queen EDP, and now I'm back with her new scent, Killer Queen Oh So Sheer EDT* ($39 CAD/30 ml). This scent comes packaged in a similar bottle, but the notes are different, and this scent is definitely more Spring-appropriate!

"A new facet of Killer Queen is born, Oh So Sheer. Capturing the essence of the daring signature scent, this new incarnation awakens with fresher femininity, inspired by a modern and ethereal ultra-feminine bouquet. This enchanting essence opens with opulent accents of Purple Plum infused by a delightful blend of Mulberry, Blackberry and Elderberries for a bold and modern inflection. Notes also include the signature bouquet of graceful Rainbow Plumeria, precious Red Velvet Flower and creamy Liquid Praline."

Katy Perry's Killer Queen Oh So Sheer EDT is packaged in a stunning clear glass bottle in the shape of  a Queen’s scepter, and a golden crown cap. The perfume is a light purple colour, which actually works well with the Color of the Year - Radiant Orchid. My only issue with the packaging is that you can't stand it up, it needs to be laid on its' side, which takes up a bit more room. 

The original Killer Queen perfume was heavier, and definitely more of a night-out, Winter scent. Killer Queen Oh So Sheer is a more day-time appropriate version. While there's a definite resemblance between the two version, I think that they're different enough to justify owning both. This scent is sweet and floral, and it works nicely with my body chemistry. On my skin, I find that this scent is fairly soft & subtle. The wear time of this scent isn't the best - I find that I have to reapply after 4-5 hours.

I think that this is an affordable option, and anyone that enjoyed the original Killer Queen scent should definitely check this out. I think that this perfume would actually make a great first scent for a teenager, and the packaging will definitely be well-received! Have you tried any of Katy Perry's fragrances? What's your current go-to scent?

  1. i love this scent! it does take up more room (especially if you had a larger size) but it is such gorgeous packaging. I only get about 5 hours of wear on this as well unfortunately.

    1. Ya I wasn't expecting super long wear time since it's an EDT! But still, 5 hours isn't horrible! :)
