Kim Kardashian

KIM_KARDASHIAN_GOLDKim Kardashian is the queen of reality TV: an entrepreneur, model, actress and style trailblazer who has entertained millions of TV viewers, Twitter followers and blog readers just by being her glamorous self. As Women’s Wear Daily commented, ‘Like a classic movie star with a knack for new technology, she meets and greets with poise and perfect hair.’

When this quintessential ‘modern girl – daughter of a wealthy Hollywood lawyer – watched the first MTV reality show, ‘The Real World’, Kim realised that’s what she wanted to do. ‘I wasn’t thinking fame. I was just thinking how cool. I don’t know why; I just thought my life seemed interesting. I thought, “if only people knew the crazy things that go on in this household, it would be so funny.” They’d come over and be like, “Oh my God, you need your own reality show”.’ A pilot was made. The rest is TV history: viewers all over the world have been ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’, stepping inside their world to witness marriages, divorces, pregnancies – and many a shopping expedition…

With her sisters/co-stars, Khloé and Kourtney, Kim Kardashian owns a chain of clothing stores, fashion lines (Kardashian Kollection) – and has launched some seriously successful fragrances.

With one of the biggest Twitter followings in the entire world, she turned to her fans to help create the first signature fragrance, Kim Kardashian. This bold brunette asked them to recommend scents they liked in order to come up with something that she could truly share with her fans. She collaborated with Givaudan perfumer Claude Dir to create this sensual floral, with notes of mandarin, honeysuckle and orange blossom, pink jasmine and tuberose, and in the warm base – created to reflect Kim’s softer side – elements of creamy sandalwood, vanilla orchid, musk and jacaranda wood. ‘When I started developing my fragrance, I really took inspiration from the feminine, pretty things I surround myself with – I thought about what makes me feel confident and translated that into a scent,’ she comments.

KARDASHIAN_GLAM‘I am very hands-on with my fragrances,’ explains Kim Kardashian. And that debut scent has been followed by equally blockbuster launches: True Reflection, Glam and Gold – as always, modelling for her own advertising.  This latest scent sparkles with Italian bergamot, grapefruit and pink peppercorns, a with a floral heart, mellowing to golden resins of amber and benzoin, with musk ‘for a last blush of elegance’. The flacons for the fragrances, meanwhile, are as voluptuous as she is. ‘I really didn’t want a square bottle of any type. I am curvy and think my fragrance should represent me. So I picked a sleek round vessel in gold with ebony accents…

Kim Kardashian and her fiancé, rap star Kanye West, recently created yet another stir by starring on the cover of US Vogue, giving rise to the Twitter hashtag phenomenon #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple. As Vogue Editor Anna Wintour commented, Vogue is about defining culture, ‘And those role is currently being played by Kim to a T.’ (Or should that be a K?)

One thing for sure:  in Kim Kardashian‘s case, success definitely smells sweet. And really rather sexy, too…
