Katy Perry's Latest Magical Elixir Fragrance: Mad Potion

The Magical Elixir: Katy Perry's Mad Potion
Katy Perry's Mad Potion is a spellbinding oriental musk. This fragrance is very different to her other fruitier floral creations, with its rich deliciously seductive vanillas from around the world.

Top :      Tahitian Vanilla Orchid, Apple Musk, Pink Peonies
Heart:     Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, Creamy Musk, Jasmine Petals
Base:     Mexican Vanilla Bean Absolute, Magical Musk, Glowing Amber.  


Katy Perry Mad Potion
I found this fragrance to be beautifully soft and sweet yet sexy in a bewitching way, not quite what I was expecting from the "Mad Potion" title. It is a fun scent and different to anything I already have in my fragrance collection.

I thought the fragrance lasted well on my skin for about 5 hours. I was then surprised when my youngest son came home from school and I hugged him, and he told me I smelt nice. He could still smell the Mad Potion fragrance on me a good 9 hours after I had originally applied it at 6.30am before leaving for work!

The Mad Potion Bottle
This bottle is fun with a capital F! It's a frosted finish potion bottle, with a sparkling purple mystical crystal ball-like lid. The bottle, with it's bright purple potion inside, has a magical glowing look to it. 



Mad Potion totally looks like it was brewed by a magical, mystical and slightly mad sorceress! I love the colour purple and I love the whimsical, quirky nature of this bottle. After I finish this fragrance I will definitely keep the bottle!

Katy Perry's Mad Potion is priced at $39 for 30ml, $49 for 50ml & $69 for 100ml. It is available from Myer, Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and select pharmacies nationally.

    1. I have been known to buy fragrances purely because I love the bottle too! Fragrance companies must know this and that's why there are so many gorgeous bottles around.

    1. Katy Perry is amazing! I read an interview about her and she seems to be very involved in the whole fragrance creation process.

  17. I have to be honest and say I wouldn't reach for this on my own while shopping. But your description has me curious enough to take a sniff if I do see it around. :-)

    1. Have a sniff if you see it in store, if you like musk and vanilla scents you should like it.

  18. The bottle is cute enough but not quite as cute as my Marc Jacobs Honey. It's one scent I just can't stop wearing! How good was it that the scent lasted all day? It's hard not to love a perfume that's long lasting!

    1. The Marc Jacobs Honey bottle is definitely cute!

  19. I need to get back in the habit of wearing perfume. Having babies has kept me away but it's a lovely indulgence. Sounds like this one is long lasting which I am always a fan of. I will be sure to check its scent out when I pass the perfume counter next time.

    1. I liked the Killer Queen bottles too but was frustrated they took up so much room on my shelf due to them lying down and not being upright! #FirstWorldFragranceLoverProblems lol!

  26. I've had a signature scent for so long that I don't tend to try too many others. I did buy a few pacifica and Sonia Kashuk scents that I enjoyed this summer... when I remembered to put them on! lol xoxo

  27. Cute bottle. My girls would want to pinch that off me. I have found my fragrance tastes have changed a lot and I find smells a lot stronger than I used to. I try to wear very light scents now so I don't give myself a headache. Bron x

  32. I have to go check this out at the local chemist. I like to spray the liner of my handbag with testers lol. I just finished the Jovan White Musk perfume I had, so my scent at the moment is in a can, Rexona I think!
