Kim Kardashian's Love Collection gift set is currently available at Macy's.You may be sick of hearing about Kim Kardashian's sham of a marriage, but her latest fragrance, Love, returns to the market with a hefty dose of irony. The wedding-inspired scent, with notes of jasmine, pink freesia, mimosa, tuberose, musk, and sandalwood, had an extremely limited launch in August as the reality star prepared for her nuptials to NBA player Kris Humphries.
"I thought it would be fun to create a special fragrance that represents this special time in my life," Kardashian wrote on her blog on Aug. 3. "We've only produced 1000 bottles… one for me to wear on my wedding day, 200 for my bridal shower, and 799 for you guys! I really hope you guys love it as much as I do. I've had such a positive response to my previous two fragrances and this one means so much to be because of what it stands for… the enduring beauty of building a life with your other half and watching your love grow, each and every day."
Kardashian must have meant 72 days, because that's exactly how long the couple was married before calling it quits. Who would have thought that her limited-edition wedding fragrance would outlast the marriage itself?!
The original Love perfume sold for $100 and came in a platinum-finish jewel-encrusted bottle numbered and signed by Kardashian. But Macy's has re-released Love along with Kardashian's two other fragrances in the $55 Love Collection Gift Set for the holidays. It's not available online, but kardashianfragrance.com has a store locator. We're assuming the set was designed prior to Kardashian's split. But no matter! Kardashian is still eager to cash in on her wedding, taking to her blog to promote the scent.
"Just wanted to let you know that my new holiday fragrance gift set, Kim Kardashian Love Collection, is out this week at select Macy's stores and online!!" she wrote on her blog on Nov. 27. "It features all three of my fragrances, my signature scent, Gold and Love."
Perhaps the Love Collection isn't flying off shelves the way she'd hoped. Kardashian reminded her fans again on Dec. 3 that the holiday set would make a great Christmas gift, but some commenters on her blog weren't buying into it. "I'm sorry I just don't see how any of you followers think Kim is an inspiration," writes yolo123. "Do you know how she got famous?? Do you think divorcing someone is inspiring? I just dont [sic] get it." Another blogger named jennypoo writes, "No one buy this!...This is just another lame excuse to try to steal money from American people!" We have to side with these bloggers. Kardashian has copied handbag and dress designs, and stamped her name on everything from Sketchers to OPI nail polish. Enough!
Surely Kim Kardashian has some unconditional fans, but is the rest of the world tired of her trying to cash in on everything humanly possible? Can she successfully make money on this ill-timed, hypocritical fragrance? Maybe, maybe not. But her next endeavor is probably right around the corner.
