(NEW YORK) — One of Katy Perry’s biggest musical idols was the late Freddie Mercury of the legendary rock group Queen. Now, that band, and one of its songs, has provided inspiration for her brand-new fragrance.
After teasing on Thursday via Twitter that she had “something very exciting to reveal,” Katy announced that she’d been working on her third fragrance for “over a year,” and had just attended the “elegant unveiling” of the perfume, called Killer Queen. Including a picture of the new perfume bottle, she added, “Can’t wait to share the royal juice!” The bottle looks like a multi-faceted jewel, topped by a golden crown.
“Killer Queen” is a song by the band Queen. It appeared on their 1974 album Sheer Heart Attack. Katy’s previous fragrances, Meow and Purr, were cat-themed.
