It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian is one of the most influential celebrities of our time. From her style to her makeup, she has redefined modern beauty. And, of course, her signature fragrances are no exception.
Kim Kardashian’s foray into the fragrance game kicked off a decade ago with the launch of her debut scent, Kim Kardashian Eau De Parfum. Working with Givaudan’s esteemed master perfumer Claude Dir, Kim crafted an inviting and lush floral bouquet. Its popularity gave the mogul the confidence to add more fragrances to her lineup, like Gold, True Reflection, and Glam. As a result, her ever-growing women’s fragrances have earned their place amongst major beauty brands as a symbol of modern luxury.
Although Kim has released a few different lines of scents over the years, this post will look at some of the best from both lines and compare them to decide which scent is right for you.
