Kim Kardashian True Reflection Launch

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 and Jonathan Cheban
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.

Wish I’d been looking in the right direction for this!
Looking the right way, but not the greatest shot!
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:
Head Notes: 
Italian bergamot, luscious plus and succulent peach.
Heart Notes: 
Night blooming gardenia (a theme across her fragrances), chocolate orchid and lotus flower.
Base Notes: 
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.

    I’ll admit to never having watched any of their shows but I’ve seen Kim in magazines etc and she always has gorgeous clothes and flawless makeup. Looks like a very glam event!
