It seems when it comes to KKW Beauty and fragrance, Kim Kardashian West just can’t catch a break. The history of fragrance at the company reads like a comedy of errors – one was banned, one caused a lawsuit and another had her accused of plagiarism. Now, Kardashian West is facing another issue with a fragrance she is launching in collaboration with her sister, Kylie Jenner.
Previously, the beauty mogul sisters had teased three fragrances they’d be creating together, aptly titled Kylie Jenner by KKW Fragrance. The scents, which were set to drop on KKW Beauty’s website on April 26, came in three lip-shaped bottles – nude, red and pink. Reflecting their colourings, the pout-shaped spritzes were described as vanilla, opulent floral and coconut, respectively, and they did seem like a rather fun addition to your top shelf.
However, Jenner and Kardashian West’s much-anticipated collaboration has been thwarted one week before it was due to go on sale, with Kim taking to Instagram Stories to reveal the bottle had not passed manufacturing tests.
“We are so excited to launch our fragrance collaboration that we’ve been working on for such a long time,” Kardashian West wrote. “Sadly, we found out today from the manufacturer that a few of our bottles did not pass durability tests while on the assembly line and we have paused production while the team explores the issue further.”
“Together, we have made the difficult decision to delay the launch as we would never release a product that did not meet the strictest of quality guidelines. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we have a new launch date! Thank you for your understanding and support always.”
The short statement was signed off from both Kim and Kylie and no new information was given as to when we can expect the launch just yet. While it’s certainly a setback, take solace in the fact that Jenner is rumoured to be launching skincare and so we might just have a new blessing from the Kardashian-Jenner beauty world sooner than we think.
