When I bought this two perfumes, I got a request to compare them, and I thought I'd do that today! I've been in two minds about Purr and Meow - one day I love one, then the other. I just can't make my mind up, they're both wonderful! But in case you are wondering, here's a little comparison of the two.
ScentLet's talk about Meow first. This is a vanillary, very sweet perfume with notes of vanilla, pear, tangerine, musk and gardenia. I definitely smell some citrus and the vanilla. Pear is one of my favorite notes and I find it very hard to pick out in a perfume, but it gives it that special note that I really enjoy, it mixes well with everything else. Meow is not sugary sweet, but instead nicely rounded, it's definitely not one of those artifical syrupy scents. I love it personally, mostly for the creamy scent which is rare with sweet fragrances.
Purr is quite a different scent, though they have some of the same notes. Where Meow is sweet, Purr is more floral. The most prominent note for me is gardenia along with tuberose, so the white florals are very present in here. It also has peach and vanilla as well as coconut. Now doesn't that sound like an absolute treat? Unfortunately, it doesn't smell like that exactly, which is not to say it's a bad fragrance! In fact, it's my favorite out of the two at the moment (though this changes weekly) and I love the more outgoing, grown-up vibe it has. I just don't smell the coconut or peach at all.
Longevity & sillage
Both scents have average lasting power of about 3-4 hours, but they have great sillage! You can really smell them on a person and on clothes, they last up to two days which I love.
Obviously, the packaging on both perfumes is very similar, they're both cat shaped with crystals for eyes and have a pendant around their neck. Meow is light pick while Purr is a nice dark purple. I love them both, they're a little kitsch, but they look really cute on my perfume shelf.
Prices for these two are very similar and they're really great if you're on a budget. I paid 20,70€ for Purr and 25,50€ for Meow respectively, but they often have deals for these two fragrances so you can get them for even less. Both are 100 ml bottles and will last you ages so it really is a great deal.
Which one should you get?
It's entirely up to you. If you like fragrances like Aquolina Pink Sugar and the Fantasy line from Britney Spears, you'll prefer Meow. If you like Agent Provocateur, the original scent from Kim Kardashian and other white florals, go for Purr. On another note, if you need a sexier fragrance, I would say Purr is better, it's verrrrrrry seductive *waggling eyebrows* while Meow is more of a daytime scent (this is my opinion, my boyfriend actually prefers Meow, I don't get it). Honestly though, I think both scents are great and if you want, you should really get both - they're inexpensive and nice quality, plus different enough to justify having both!
There is another scent by Katy Perry called Killer Queen, which I don't have since it has a lot of patchouli, which I can't stand, but there a few flankers of it which sound quite lovely. Anyway, I hope this comparison was helpful to some of you and I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Do you prefer Meow or Purr?
Danes sem pripravila primerjavo dveh dišav Katy Perry, ki sta trenutno na vrhu mojih parfumskih favoritov. Kar ne morem se odločiti, kateri mi je bolj všeč - vseeno pa upam, da ti bo današnja objava pomagala pri nakupu.
Najprej Meow. Je zelo sladek vanilijev parfum, ki ni eden izmed tistih umetnih vonjev, temveč zelo kremen, pristen vanilijev parfum. Vonjam tudi citruse, parfum namreč vsebuje note mandarine kot tudi hruške in gardenije. Meni je vonj zelo všeč, ker ni 'plastičen' oziroma umeten, temveč prava vanilija z nekaj zanimivimi notami, sploh hruško, ki parfumu daje poseben vonj.
Purr je precej drugačen vonj, veliko bolj cvetličen. Sama najbolj vonjam bele rože, torej gardenijo in tuberozo, pa tudi malo vanilije in mošusa. Imel naj bi tudi note kokosa in breskve, ki pa jih sama ne zaznam - res škoda, ker se po opisu sliši mamljivo. To pa ne pomeni, da mi vonj ni všeč - nasprotno, zdi se mi krasen (trenutno ga imam tudi raje od Meow, čeprav se moje mnenje tedensko spreminja).
Oba parfuma na koži trajata povprečno dolgo, nekje med 3-5 ur. Na oblekah veliko dlje, ju voham tudi po dveh dnevih. Imata pa odlično projekcijo in sta definitivno 'compliment getters', ljudje jih bodo takoj opazili in pohvalili.
Kot vidiš, sta si parfuma precej podobna, oba v obliki mačke s kristali za oči, eden je mlečno rožnate barve, drugi globoke vijolične. Res je, da sta malo kičasta, vendar sta na moji polici s parfumi prav ljubka.
To je seveda tvoja izbira, tukaj je samo nekaj napotkov ... Če so ti všeč vonji, kot je Aquolina Pink Sugar in Fantasy linija Britney Spears, bo Meow popoln zate. Če pa imaš raje parfume kot je originalni Kim Kardashian, Dita von Teese ali Agent Provocateur, posezi po Purr. Meni osebno se zdi Meow bolj primeren za dan, Purr pa za večerne izhode (malo bolj zapeljiv vonj, čeprav se moj dragi ne strinja in mu je bolj všeč Meow - ah, kdo bi razumel moške). Po pravici povedano se mi zdita oba vonja krasna, dovolj ugodna in različna, da si lahko omisliš kar oba!
Katy Perry ima v svoji liniji še parfum Killer Queen, ki ga sama nimam, saj ne prenesem pačulija, ima pa sedaj tudi novo spomladansko verzijo, ki deluje zelo zanimiva. Kakorkoli že, upam, da ti je bila objava vsaj malo v pomoč pri nakupu!
Kateri ti je bolj všeč - Meow ali Purr?
