I smell a smell...

....Of Anna Sui 'Rock me' and Katy Perry 'Purr'.

Everyone has a different take on smells but this is my view on these two perfumes.
Now usually I am never a buyer of celebrity perfumes, nothing has ever really attracted me to trying them. Especially after I had found 'the' perfume I stopped trying new ones until recently I decided I can vary my collection.
I love Katy Perry and on twitter a live streaming of her doing signings was on and it was for the promotion of her perfume. I couldn't resist the adorable purple cat bottle, I know it may not be to everyone's tastes but I think its lovely. The bottle has diamanté cat eyes and a 'collar' that says 'purr' and I adore cats!
I got the 100ml for £47.99, it did take me a while to get my hands on it as it was just before Christmas and constantly out of stock.

The scent is described as:
'Fresh citrus accord of peach nectar and forbidden apple to awaken the senses. It develops into a delicate floral bouquet supported by notes of jasmine blossom and pink freesia and dries down into a rich, luxurious scent rich with vanilla orchid and sandalwood.'
  • Top Notes - Peach Nectar, Green Bamboo, Forbidden Apple, Gardenia.
  • Heart Notes - Jasmine Blossom, Pink Freesia, Bulgarian Rose.
  • Base Notes - Vanilla Orchid, White Amber, Creamy Sandalwood, Skin Musk. 
The description is taken from Debenhams, I am terrible at describing scents!

Verdict? I really like it, the smell is not overpowering at all, it's slightly fruit and rather light and refreshing.
The only dislike I have is that I feel like the scent doesn't last long on me but as I've purchased a pretty big bottle I don't mind. I'm not sure if I'd repurchase it though due to that fact.

Next I got Anna Sui 'Rock me' in the boxing day sale.
This is normally £25 for 30ml but I got it for I think £11 I'm not sure but it was pretty cheap. I didn't even want another perfume but I thought this would be perfect to pop into my handbag and have on the go.

This scent is described as
'A wild young floral fruity essence that attracts attention instantly with top notes of Williams Pear, Green Orange and Peach Skin, then delves into its love-song heart: Honeysuckle, Jasmine Nat and Waterlily. Fresh and flirty, it counterbalances rhythms with its own sweet beat. And then the downbeat of the woods takes over: Cedarwood, Amber, and Vanilla SFE.√° Driving home the energy, and finishing the song with a warm embrace.'

Verdict? I absolutely love this one, the scent is fruity woody and stronger than 'purr' but not in a  overpowering way and it lasts longer too. My mum is always saying how nice I smell, I'm really glad I bought this and would repurchase it.

Has anyone tried these? What perfume are you loving right now? <3


  1. Great reviews! Ooh I smelled Katy Perry's perfume the other the other day and it did smell quite nice. I'm loving D&G L'imperatrice at the moment though :) xxx
