katy-perry3She’s definitely not the first celebrity to come out with a designer fragrance, but Katy Perry hopes her new scent stands out from the rest.

The “Hot N Cold” songstress explained Purr by Katy Perry (due out in November at Nordstrom) is her attempt at expressing herself through the powerful sense of smell.

“I have about 50 fragrances and I’m intrigued by the mystique scent has. I saw a lot of my peers getting into this world, and, as with my music, I thought I could bring my touch to the category and make it competitive.”

“There are amazing fragrances backed by other celebrities, but what I’m bringing is not like any other. It wasn’t just like, ‘I love gardenias.’ That would have been the easy route. I really wanted to develop a scent that was completely unlike anything I’d smelled before and not one that smelled like a knockoff of another scent. I’d never want to do anything ‘just because.’”
