Ever wonder what Kim Kardashian smells like? You’ll soon find out because a Kim K fragrance is currently in the works. She recently wrote on her blog:
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!!!
I have decided to work with New Wave Fragrances, who also distribute Ed Hardy and True Religions fragrances.
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! It will be available in the U.S., Germany, England, Australia and Japan.
I hope you LOVE what I come up with!

Since the opening of the shu uemura’s first Beauty Boutique in Tokyo in 1983, each year a limited edition Boutique Birthday Collection of the season’s most festive beauty items is created in celebration.
This year, to mark the 25th anniversary, the late Mr. Uemura created the most special and unique collection yet. HANA-BI is inspired by the three fundamental elements in nature: terre (earth), rose (flower), and source (water). The collection includes a series of 100% natural origin fragrances formulated with Depsea water, three color palettes, and two shimmering liquid eye liners.
My favorite of the HANA-BI bunch is the Fleur de Source Palette. These powder shadows feel cool and creamy on the skin. Lightly apply to create a soft and natural effect or layer them for a more dramatic look.
And, as if this new limited-edition collection wasn’t exciting enough, shu uemura is offering all their “friends & families” 20% off all orders and FREE standard shipping! The promotion will begin on Thursday, June 26th and end on Sunday, June 29th*. Enter promo code SHUSUMMER** at checkout.
*Valid: from 6/26–6/29 at 11:59pm EST.
**You must be signed in and enter promo code to receive the discount.
Last night, at the Grand Palais in Paris, Lancôme welcomed Anne Hathaway as its newest ambassador and introduced Magnifique, its newest fragrance.
The fragrance collection and the advertising campaign will launch in August 2008.
Magnifique, a woodsy floral, was created by master perfumers Olivier Cresp and Jacques Cavallier.
Some of Spoiled Pretty’s most popular posts are the ones about Kim Kardashian. So this one is for all of you readers out there who can’t get enough of Kim. Today, Kim took a break from her Memorial Day festivities to answer some of her fans’ makeup and beauty-related questions. Below is a re-cap of that post (I’ve made some grammar/spelling edits and included links to the products Kim recommends). Enjoy!
Hey Kim…love you and your sisters…LOVE the show! Quick question: In the season premiere of Season 2 Khloe was wearing an awesome shade of pink nail polish when she “cornered Scott.” Can you tell me the shade or at least the brand by chance? Thanks.
It’s by the company Essie and shade is called Limo-Scene.
Hi Kim! I love you. As J.Lo is your inspiration, you are mine! I really would like to know what is the perfume you like the most! And for night too!
I usually stick to the same scent — my all time every day scent is Michael by Michael Kors.
Kim, I am your biggest fan. What is your diet/workout regime and what kind of products do you use for your hair?
I try to eat as healthy as possible, but make sure I work out all the time. I have a trainer Kathy Kaehler who I work out with all the time. We actually just made a work out video which is simple and easy to follow along with — especially if you are busy and don’t have any exercise equipment. As for my hair, I like to switch up products all the time to keep it fresh and vibrant. I use anything from Herbal Essences to Finesse to salon products.

This past weekend, I took a trip to the mall…shout-out to KOP (you Philly gals know what I’m talkin’ about). I was in Nordstrom’s cosmetics department for, literally, three minutes before a salesperson had me sold on a bottle of Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau Fraîche.
I usually spend weeks hemming and hawing over a new fragrance, and only break down and buy it once I’ve decided that my pulse points can’t live without it. Well, with Eau Fraîche, it took me approximately 180 seconds to come to this conclusion.
As I reported a few months ago, the latest incarnation of my favorite fragrance is the lightest formulation yet; this variation is airier and perfect for warmer weather. The new top notes of sparking tangerine and grapefruit lend a summery kick, but the fragrance dries down to the familiar notes of red fruits, wild berries and summer woods.
Besides the intoxicating scent, what really convinced me to swipe the plastic was the price tag. A 3.4 oz bottle of this limited-edition fragrance is only $65.
Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau Fraîche is now available at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom*, Bloomingdale’s, select Macy’s and Sephora.
*Receive a Butterfly Body Lotion (0.2 oz.) and deluxe mini Eau de Toilette (0.04 oz.) with any $65 Hanae Mori purchase – online and in-store.
