On Friday evening I went along to the rather flashy Rose Club to see Kim Kardashian launch the latest in her fragrance range ‘True Reflection’. I was a bit fan-girl excited about this for a few reasons – firstly, having been invited to the previous launch but not able to make it I really wanted to be there and secondly, E! would be filming the whole thing.
E! has been my guilty pleasure since I discovered the channel when I was living in America – as sad as this sounds, but the fact that I could potentially be a face in the background of one of my favourite shows was a little bit exciting too.
Overall, I’m really not all that fussed about celebrities – but there’s something about the Kardashian clan phenomenon that I love. I guess it’s just watching them makes you almost think you know them or something!? Anyway, enough about the K-klan…on to the launch!
In typical fashion my camera died the moment Kim walked into the room – so a big thank you to Laura from Belles Boutique for sharing her fab pictures from the night with me!

Kim looked flawless, as I expected she would. Make-up wise, she’s definitely not a fan of the natural look, but she looked gorgeous. She wore a fitted lace overlay dress with red skirt detail and sheer lace top. She’s pretty tiny too – well, she’s about my height, maybe slightly smaller as we were both wearing heels.

After a bit of a wait and some build up Kim came in and said a few words about her new fragrance – which she describes as “Having a bit of a twist compared to her previous scents”. There was also a pretty impressive modern ballet performance as the finale of the event (hence the snap of the ballet dancer…)
It’s an oriental fragrance that break down into:
Italian bergamot, luscious plus and succulent peach.
Night blooming gardenia (a theme across her fragrances), chocolate orchid and lotus flower.
Textured woods, patchouli and musk.
It’s a very night-time, sexy scent – the sort of thing you can definitely imagine Kim wearing it. It’s not my personal choice of fragrance – although I do really like her original fragrance. If you like sexy orientals, then do check it out.
‘True Reflection’ is £30 for 50ml and exclusive to Debenhams until June when it launches nationwide.
