Cherry Bomb Killer Perfume Will Blow Your Mind

What do The Runaways and cupcakes have in common? Cherry Bomb Killer Perfume. From the wellspring of New York-based, independent perfumers Maria McElroy and Alexis Karl, Cherry Bomb was inspired by their rebellious teenage years of rock bands, breaking curfew, hot summer nights, dark clubs, and, yes, cookie dough and cupcakes. So in a Joan Jett-guided moment, they whipped up two standout scents that come in two adorable packages: a semi-sparkling solid perfume and an on-the-go, heart-shaped, clip-on vial in either Truth or Dare or Rebel Angel. Both have sophisticated floral undertones but Truth or Dare packs a bright, fruity punch while Rebel Angel evokes a sweet vanilla, toasted marshmallowy aroma. The perfect hit of fun for the wild girl in all of us.
Cherry Bomb Killer Perfume in Truth or Dare or Rebel Angel, $35 for the Perfume Solid and $55 for the Hanging Heart, available at IndieScents or CherryBombKillerPerfume.
