Perry, who has 72m Twitter followers, and cosmetics company Coty have set up virtual pop-up store @KatyPerryPopUp to launch the fragrance, giving users who follow the account access to "exclusive content from Katy".

Influential fans were selected to recruit other fans ahead of the pop-up store launch. At the critical launch moment the 'store' was locked only to members who could then buy the perfume ahead of the wider launch by using the Twitter Buy Now card.

The fragrance is available in the US for $29.99 via the virtual pop-up or in selected retail stores.
