Look out, Duchess — there’s another Kate, er, Katy, making a mark up north. Katy Perry recently brought her first fragrance, Purr, to Canada, and so far the scent’s been a purr-fect addition to the country’s fragrance counters. “It’s been out for nine weeks and it’s been number one for nine weeks,” the singer told ET Canada while promoting the perfume in Toronto. “So it’s very exciting and I feel very loved in Canada.” Visiting our neighbors to the north on her California Dreams tour, Perry also revealed her method for wearing perfume. “I usually spray and walk through. I never spray directly on,” she said. And why? “I’ve heard certain rumors that you’re not supposed to spray directly on the skin. Then it’s not so concentrated, because everybody knows sometimes when a woman walks into a room, she can smell like her grandmother.” As for Purr itself, Perry says the fragrance is “basically me in a bottle. I think a lot of people go up and they go, ‘That’s definitely Katy Perry. This is definitely Katy Perry’s perfume.'” Describing it as “cute,” the singer said she spent time researching perfume packaging before deciding on Purr’s lavender cat-shaped bottle. “I would go into endless department stores all over the world and look at what was on the shelves,” she said. “I remember some of the Galliano perfumes that were like snow globes. I was like, ‘Well, when the perfume is finished I just want to keep this on my mantle, because it’s such a fun little tchotchke.’ So of course the outside is important.” And unforgettable, too. “It’s kind of like the Goldilocks of perfume,” she mused. “It’s not too much, it’s not too forgettable, it’s just right.”
