Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian made her mark on the world of beauty with the successful launch of her KKW contour kits.

The hugely sought-after product sold 300,00 units in just three hours – earning the reality star over $14 million almost instantly.

So naturally, the 37-year-old mother-of-two has decided to expand the KKW collection.

Taking to Instagram, Kim revealed that she would release three new perfumes later this month.

Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Citrus, and Crystal Gardenia Oud, will be available from kkwfragrance.com from November 15 and if the contour kits are anything to go by, we're guessing stocks won't last long.

Fans were also treated to a sneak peak of the product's packaging which features a sleek frosted bottle emblazoned with the simplistic KKW logo.

Of course, this isn't the first time the star has released a fragrance under her name. Glam, Pure Honey, and Kim Kardashian Love are just some of her most popular scents to date – though all seven releases came before the launch of KKW Beauty.



When we all moved on from Impulse and Charlie sprays, we thought we'd be moving up to the more mature fragrances… until we found out they cost around 100 quid each.

Yep, it ain't cheap to smell nice.

We resort to buying perfumes and expensive sprays for birthdays and Christmas, but after that, we basically go back to Impulse every single time.

But now, Tom Ford has released body sprays, and it's like the midway point between Impulse and Chanel.

Coming in around €50, they promise to last longer on the skin than their competitor sprays.

The Tom Ford All Over Body Sprays will be available from March 31 and we're all going to be smelling like superstars.



Are you a big fan of Vera Wang Princess perfume? Or do you consider it the scent of your youth?

We can all recall that fruity floral scent that made everyone feel like a Disney Princess when they wore it. 

Well ladies, get ready to have your mind blown.

You all know what the bottle looks like, right? A heart shaped glass with a gorgeous bejewelled crown for a lid.

But did you know that your favourite perfume actually comes with a RING? We had no idea.

When you take off the adorable tiny crown, you can actually remove the bottom half, to reveal your glorious new ring. 

Now it may not be your style, and it may not fit you (fingers come in different shapes and sizes), but a free ring is a free ring. 

This discovery was originally made by Cosmopolitan's Laura Capon, when she was trying out Vera Wang's newest Princess scent, which is dubbed Princess Of Hearts.

Honestly, we got way more excited about this discovery than we care to admit. 

Did you know about this free ring?




Chanel No. 5 is one of the most popular perfumes in the world, but soon it could be no more.

A French railway company, SNCF, want to build a high-speed train line through the fields that Chanel use for their perfumes.

May roses and jasmine flowers grow in these fields, which go into every bottle of No.5.

The fashion house has released a letter, saying that if these plans go ahead, they will have to cease production of the iconic perfume.

"The construction of a viaduct and the regular passage of high-speed trains over these fields of flowers would force Chanel to cease supporting its artisanal activities in the region.

It continued to say that the flowers harvested there are "unique and exceptional… and indispensable for the creation of Chanel perfumes."

These sought-after flowers are also used to created Coco, No.5 Eau Premiere and No.5 L'Eau perfumes.

SNCF is arguing that the new train line would improve travel between Marseille and Nice.

Chanel No. 5 was first commissioned in 1921, and was the brain child of Coco Chanel herself.



Some wear it on their wrists, others on their neck, and we all have that one friend who still walks through a perfume wall each morning.

For years we’ve been reading about pulse points online and in magazines, but it seems there’s one unusual perfume hotspot we’ve all been missing.

According to the experts, celebrities like Liv Tyler and Adriana Lima spray their favoured scents on their belly buttons because the navel is perfectly shaped for holding fragrances.

As with traditional pulse points like the neck and wrists, as the body heats up the perfume’s smell begins to radiate.

For those who remain unconvinced, behind the ear lobes, inside the elbows and at the back of each knee also react well to deposits of desirable aromas.

MAC Cosmetics' range is known for its highly-pigmented, creamy and vanilla-scented lipsticks.

Many shades have become cult products, and the makeup moguls at MAC have decided to immortalise them in scent.

Shades like Ruby Woo, Velvet Teddy, Candy Yum-Yum, Heroine, Lady Danger and Creme de Nude have all been chosen for the collection.

The MAC Shadescents are designed to capture the personality of your favourite lippie.

The collection plays on the concept of synaesthesia; the mixing up of the senses that allows some people to see sounds or hear colour – or smell colour, in this case.

Ruby Woo will be inspired by "deep red leather" (sounds very Fifty Shades) while Candy Yum-Yum will be reminiscent of fairground candyfloss.

"We have a fanbase attached to certain lipstick shades," MAC's senior vice president and group creative director, James Gager, explained to Elle.

When developing a concept for a new scent collection, the creative directors were inspired by their existing shades rather than going with a celebrity face or novelty gimmick.

The scents are dropping on December 8, just in time for Christmas.



While it’s fairly sophis’ to have a signature scent, most of us see the benefit of having a little variety in our perfume collections.

Switching between ‘day’ and ‘night’ fragrances is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our attitude towards perfume here at SHEmazing! HQ.

In fact, a quick poll in the office revealed that the vast majority of us have ‘date’ perfumes, ‘girlie’ perfumes and ‘special memory’ perfumes, so we know our stuff when it comes to our scents.

And because we’re such fragrance junkies, we fell all over ourselves when we heard Azzaro and Mugler have launched two new him and her perfumes.

Angel Muse, which boasts a pretty slick design, is a subtle fragrance we can’t get enough of, and we’re just DYING to add it to our collection.

Both fragrances will be available in Arnotts and Debenhams, so form an orderly queue ladies.



We tend to feel quite bad splashing out on a gorgeous bottle of perfume no matter how amazing it smells. We would much rather Santa got it for us instead!

Embrace the night with Chanel's super sexy, Orientally inspired scent. 


Christmas presents can be tricky business. And there's only so many years you can buy the same kind of things. 

Are you tired of getting your mum the same old gift for Christmas? Because we are. You've bought her a million knitted jumpers through the years and there's only so many 'I Love Mum' mugs you can find. 

We feel your pain, because buying for your mother is one of the hardest presents to decide on. But fear not! As we have a totally cool pressie that she will LOVE this year. 

Roger &Gallet are one of the world's leading perfumers and they have developed a Perfume Diagnosis on their website. 

And what's a Perfume Diagnosis, you ask? Well, it's a small survey to let you know what scent is best suited to you. R&G have gathered up all their information from over the years (and that's a LOT) and by taking the one-minute test, they'll let you know what perfume is suitable for you by taking into account your personality and your interests. 

The survey is a fun way to choose a gift and it shows that you actually put some thought into your present, too.

Your siblings will be raging, we guarantee it.

You can take the quiz here, to find a perfect scent for your equally perfect mum.


S! TV presenter, Lisa Kavanagh, ventures behind-the-scenes to check out the new Gucci Bamboo fragrance in the Shelbourne Hotel.

Fiona Cooke tells us all about the beautiful new scent which is infused with orange blossom and woody tones. Yum!

Fiona then gives us some inside knowlegde on the best way to apply perfume, along with the best time to invest in a new one.




With New York Fashion Week over, and London coming to a close, we've already seen celebrities, designers, models and bloggers don their best outfits in order to get the best street style snap. 

If you pay close attention to what these women wear, you start to notice a trend among them. 

There are certain items every one of them seem to own and wear regularly as they go about their daily business.

Speaking to Who What Wear, stylist Marissa Webb said: "It's really impossible to speak for every other woman in the fashion industry, of course, but they are a few items I've spotted frequently on many."

Want to know what they are? Read our top list:

Fashionable flats

After all, fashion girls spend a lot of time on their feet! From fashion shows to press event, photo shoots and more, fashionistas are kept going – and no matter what anyone tells you, it's hard to do in heels. 


A go-to fragrance

Every stylish woman has a favourite perfume! It's something that they will be remembered by as they go from place to place. But there's always time to update your scent with these new autumn launches. 


The perfect trench coat

They all need a trendy trench coat for travel. Most of them choose the longer style as it gives them multiple ways to change it up. But when you're on one side of the city and you need to get over to the other, these slick cover-ups really come in handy.



Fashion women are tired women – between working and events (especially during Fashion Week), it can be so draining. The most stylish way to cover that up is by wearing chic sunglasses. Just look at Anna Wintour!


Functional but chic luggage

Women in fashion spend a lot of time travelling, whether at home or abroad. Functional luggage is a major priority (because let's face it, they have  A LOT of clothes to fit in their bags). But no one wants to walk around with a grubby suitcase, so a stylish yet sturdy suitcase is key.


She's certainly lost a significant amount of weight since the beginning of the year – something she attributes to being busy and the death of her father-in-law.

And while she's previously expressed her annoyance at the 'body-shamers' who declare her too thin, it's clear that some fans remain worried about Cheryl Fernandez Versini's appearance. 

Tonight, The X Factor judge was launching her third fragrance, StormFlower Noir, at Aqua in London.

For the occasion, the 32-year-old wore an elegant Narciso Rodriguez black jumpsuit (priced at €2,950) which she accessorised with an OTT gold collar.

However, numerous commentators declared that her choice of outfit merely accentuated her incredibly slim physique. 

"Have a nice and big big lunch!!" said one alongside a picture that Cheryl shared this evening on Instagram.

"You look so skinny," said another bluntly. "U are amazing but very skinny," declared a further individual, while one account holder stated: "You Need to eat some food baby girl too slim… beautiful pic tho."

Recently, the singer told the Daily Mirror: "No, I’m not anorexic. I work 12 to 14 hours a day. I don’t even have time at the moment to exercise – and I don’t need to either."

She had previously taken to her social media accounts to angrily declare: "I am so sick and tired of it being OK to call somebody too thin or a bag of bones.

"I would never dream of calling somebody too fat and that they should maybe cut down on their food intake?

"What is the difference?'
