Last week, pop goddess Katy Perry unveiled her brand-new perfume, Killer Queen -- a fruity, intoxicating scent named after some old Beatles song or something. The fragrance's official Web site claims it features top notes of dark plum, wild berries and bergamot with subtle hints of cashmeron, natural patchouli heart and liquid praline.

Liquid praline? Yes, correct: liquid fucking praline. If you've been dying to smell like the checkout counter of a small-town Mexican restaurant, go out and buy yourself a bottle of Killer Queen right away. And hey, there's no need to stop there! This is Katy's third official fragrance. Not too sure what the others smell like, but if I had to guess? Latex, baby powder and hairspray. And flowers! Sort of like a bouquet of roses arranged on the sink of the men's bathroom at Numbers.
Picking on Katy Perry and her burgeoning perfume empire sure is fun (and easy!), but she's hardly a trendsetter in the industry. A quick perusal of the fragrance aisle at Walgreen's turns up dozens of musician-inspired scents. And hey, that's awesome -- who wouldn't want to dab a bit of Christina Aguilera or Justin Bieber behind their ears? The only troubling thing is that there's a dearth of fragrances inspired by the icons of Texas music. That needs to change.More »
