Kim Kardashian Sniffs Out a Signature Scent!

She may be best known for her famous curves, but Kim Kardashian‘s upcoming foray into fragrance is pushing her into uncharted sensory territory. At this weekend’s Intermix-hosted VH1 Rock Honors party, the reality star dished to PEOPLE about becoming a master perfumer with her signature fragrance launching next May. “It comes out Mother’s Day and [I'm] gearing up for the launch,” she says. “We have some time, but it’s going through the process of smelling every single perfume and samples and telling people what you like and what you don’t. And then smelling it in the bottle smells different on a stick, which smells different on the skin.” So were did she start? “I knew exactly what I wanted,” she says. “Over the course of the years, I would collect different bottles, and they were very sentimental to me. I still have perfumes that my father bought me in New York and here and Italy and different places, that I would hold onto. And I wanted something that the bottle would be special for if someone got it as a gift.” And she’s definitely not fickle when it comes to fragrance. “I only wear one scent. I’ll stick to the same perfume for years before I switch,” something she hopes her fans will be able to do with her fragrance. “I wanted it to be something that you can have and wear it day or night and have it forever.” Tell us: What fragrances do you keep coming back to over the years? Will you consider adding Kim’s scent to your collection when it launches in 2009?

Didn’t y’all already have a StyleWatch article about this?

And seriously, the “first” comments are so lame here. (Or anywhere, for that matter.) All it says it that you’re way too addicted to this website.

Gen on

Don’t care for her or her scent

bigwow on

I’d rather dab toilet water behind my ears. Seriously, these celeb perfumes are way out of hand. Most of them stink.

Rachel on

once again (i said this when they asked about Jessica Simpson’s perfume) I will buy it if it smells good and is affordable. I don’t know what it smells like, so I can’t tell you if I will buy it or not.

KelseyKat on

I’m willing to be fair give it a chance. I am by no means a Hilary Duff fan but I love the perfume she made. I’ll make my opinion once it comes out.

Irina on

ALL OF YOU NEED TO STOP HATING ON KIM. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL, CURVY, AND HAS GREAT STYLE. PEOPLE WISH TO BE AS SEXY AS SHE IS. I LOVE YOU KIM, AND YOUR FAMILY IS SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH!!!
AS FOR YOUR NEW SCENT YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT I WILL BE WEARING IT!

Ruby on

whatever fragrance Kim puts out…of course I will most definitely try it and if it smells good….well of course I will make it one of my favorites and will keep it there forever…….she is so cool and I’m sure whatever it is….its gonna be a “hit” just like her!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ruby on

Yal definitely need to STOP HATIN ON KIM……she is one awesome chick and has looks to die for!!!!! So yal just need to quit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kim on

Settle down girls, the criticism on this thread is not even that bad. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, and Kim is definitely not suffering because a few people “hate on” her online. She’s still rich and famous and is probably laughing all the way to the bank.

Tina on

KIM V.. DO U HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ME BEING ADDICTED TO THIS WEBSITE?? AND HOW R U NOT ADDICTED IF U READ EVERY SINGLE POST??

Laura on

As I don’t consider Kim Kardashian a real celebrity, only a mere “celeb wannabe”, to start with, why would I want to smell like her?

I Heart Kim on

I love KIm, but who knows if you will buy something before you smell it? I hate to say, but most celebrity scents reek….I have only found Kimora’s 2 newest fragrances enjoyable-and Jessica Simpson’s previous Dessert line—and believe it or not, Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears-I’m allergic to floral crap….if it reeks like floral, I can’t wear it.

Kim v on

Tina, I don’t have a problem with you. I just feel that the “first” comments are silly and a waste of time for everyone to scroll past. IMO, it’s a pretty lame thing to get excited about. But you know, if it makes you feel better about yourself then go for it.

MIRIG on

I will buy your fragrance kim.What happen to the show?

stacey on

why would i want to smell like trash? I’ll pass

Tina on

kk well i guess it doesnt matter :( i’ll try not to do it any more :)

SoNotHollywood on

Cmarie– she is beautiful, at the very least tolerable. You’re just jealous.

melbella on

Why can’t everyone just get along? It does not matter who you are know that GOD loves all of us. These people might be rich and famous, but it’s due to our society. Look at American Idol all the really good singers we have now if it was not for the tv show they would still be considered a nobody! what it boils down to is who you know and what you have????? Just remember ladies you are all beautiful in your own way!!!! And never let anyone tell you any different!

Elda on

No thanks, she’s such a desperate wanna be!!

angela on

Kim has a eye for fashion and as a women I love the fact that she is not afraid to be in her skin. No she is not a stick figure and she is beautiful! She talks about her body, her cottage cheese on her thighs and every women I don’t care how perfect Hollywood makes you seem has problem areas. So is not fake. She is just like us and that’s why people love and relate to her. She is not the first to come out with a sex tape and I’m sure she won’t be the last! Her family has money but she is trying to make her own. Give her fragrance a chance who knows open your mind it just might be amazing!
