Katy Perry might seem fearless when she hits the stage, but when it came time to debut her newest project, signature scent Purr, the star owned up to a little stage fright. “I’m nervous,” Perry admitted at a launch event in N.Y.C. Thursday night before unveiling a cat-shaped fragrance bottle. “I wanted this to represent my personality–which is a fine line between what is cute and chic. I am somewhere in the middle,” she said. Katy’s love of cats, especially her own cat Kitty Purry, is reflected in the bottle, which features sparkling eyes and a charm around its neck. “I think it definitely represents who I am. And I wanted women to want to keep the bottle after they were done with the fragrance,” said Perry, who admitted that she hopes to add more fragrances to the collection in the future. “I didn’t want to get into perfume just because it was the thing to do. But like my music, I thought there was still room in the marketplace for my twist,” she said. “I think this is a good first step into the beauty world.” And while images of the scent are still being tightly guarded, you’ll be able to get a first-hand look when the fragrance launches in November exclusively at Nordstrom, with prices starting at $25 for a .5-oz bottle. –Katie Dickens
