As previously annouced earlier this year, reality TV star Kim Kardashian is gearing up to release her first signature fragrance for women this May 2010 and largely distributed by Mother's Day. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has combined delicate florals of jasmine, gardenia, and sandalwood; said to be a reminisce of her childhood. She didn't want to release a copycat scent already on the market. Kardashian told WWD that she and sister Kourtney used to throw flowers from outside in a blender when they were little because that's how she thought perfume was made. "I also underwent a complete smell test with every perfume I like to make sure mine is nothing like those," said Kardashian. "I wanted something rich and creamy and sexy, but still youthful," she continued. With the help of Lighthouse Beauty, Kim Kardashian had transformed beauty into pure affluence. Kim has already begun the working on her second fragrance due to release 2011!
Kim Kardashian's signature fragrance was created by perfumer Claude Dir of Givaudan who presented Kim with 7 possibilities based her likes and dislikes. Tuberose and gardenia were two favorite notes of hers. The final composition includes "crisp top notes, a heart of jasmine, tuberose and gardenia, and a drydown of tonka bean, jacaranda wood and sandalwood. It is reported Kim asked the public which color they preferred as 'detail on the bottleneck of the future fragrance and while her blog readers favored dark pink, her Twitter and Facebook fans suggested light pink. She went for the last option as it was her favorite one too...' The initial collection will release a 1 oz, 1.7 oz, 3.4 oz eau de parfum and 0.33 oz rollerball.

"It has always been a dream of mine to start my own perfume business, since I love to mix fragrances together and come up with new and different scents! I hope you understand my total excitement as I let you, the readers of my blog, become the first to know that I am creating my own fragrance!!!" says Kim.
She continued, "I have decided to work with New Wave Fragrances, who also distribute Ed Hardy and True Religions fragrances."
As previously stated, "It all started when my mom introduced me to famous perfumer Caroline Sabas from Gras, France. She and I have been working together to create a scent that is uniquely me that I can share with everyone!"
"I have also hired local designer Scott Oshry to help me create the perfect bottle for my fragrance. It is in the development stages, but we hope to have it in stores by next May - Mother's Day!"
