This weekend I will be celebrating my 40th birthday with friends and the perfume I have chosen to wear for this auspicious occasion is …
Kim Kardashian by Claude Dir 2009
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Mandarin, floral-lemon honeysuckle and orange blossom
Heart: Pink jasmine, tuberose, gardenia and spices
Base: Tonka, jacaranda wood, vanilla orchid, musk and creamy sandalwood.
I happily admit I was not in a hurry to try the Kim Kardashian perfume. Yes, I have fragrances from Justin Bieber and Paris Hilton in my favourites list but everyone has their limits! However I kept noticing favourable comments in the blogosphere that led me to take the plunge. Who would have thought that Kim Kardashian could smell mature, long-lasting and sophisticated?
My first impression of the Kim Kardashian perfume – such a feminine fragrance! Kim Kardashian is a rich floral perfume with jasmine, tuberose and gardenia. When I first spray it on I find the scent quite sweet but the sweetness is from flowers. There is no juicy fruit or other sugary ingredients. This is a sophisticated, mature smelling fragrance rather than a girly celebuscent aimed at KK’s adoring teen fans. The white florals are dominated by tuberose. Tuberose can be a challenge for budding perfumistas but there is a creaminess to Kim Kardashian which makes it easier to wear and a great beginner tuberose fragrance. Kim Kardashian melts down to a long lasting sultry scent.
I would tend wear this perfume when dressed for a night out rather than using it as an everyday scent but of course there are no rules – feel free to wear it whenever you like!
If you are a fan of white florals then give this one a chance – you may be pleasantly surprised. When you can pick up a bottle for a bargain what have you got to loose?
