KIM KARDASHIAN WEST TO RELEASE PERFUME IN BODY-SHAPED BOTTLE: Kim Kardashian West’s new scent is going to be her most personal ever. Dubbed KKW Body, she plans to model the shape of the bottle on her famous figure. "The next fragrance I have coming out in May, KKW Body, is so amazing. It is a sculpture, basically, of my body," Kardashian, 37, told Business of Fashion. "It’s really cool. The scent is so good, I’m so proud of it. It smells to me like what I would think golden smells like, even though that’s a color and something that’s just luminous." According to observers, KKW Fragrance sells 350K units of every product it launches, meaning its first year in business alone will see more than $100 million in business. (She launched the KKW Fragrance brand six months ago). (Business of Fashion — Click our Twitter or Facebook buttons to share this link!)
