That is why we have compiled a list of everything you would want to know before spending your well earned savings on this new perfume.

Kim recently took to Instagram stories to try to describe the sent. However she found it much difficult and resorted to comparing it to what her mom usually smells like. She then continued by saying that it smells like a combination of a lotion and a fragrance.
"[...] This scent. What my mom smells like, I can’t even explain it. But its like a combination of a lotion and a fragrance and just her sent all wrapped into one."

The simple yet elegant design and packaging of the bottle is typical KKW and Kim said in a recent Instagram post that it is one of her favorite bottles that they've designed so far. It is made of glass and has a sheer nude tone to it which according to Kim, she found inspiration for inside her home. A round plaque depicting a mother and daughter adorns the front side of the hexagonal bottle. The odd shape is an allude to Kris' six children where each corner represents a child.
"The design of the bottle was inspired by the neutral color palette inside my home, knowing it would look beautiful in any bathroom or vanity. The plaque symbolizes the close bond between a mother and daughter.”

AMAZING FRAGRANCE AND BEAUTIFUL BOTTLE "Amazing fragrance and beautiful bottle. This is my first time purchasing a KKW product. I am happy to say I am super satisfied. The bottle is absolutely beautiful and sophisticated. The fragrance is amazing, it reminds me of gardenias and spring. My mother also loved her gift and commented on the beauty of the bottle. Great job Kim and Kris!"

DELICATE, FLORAL SMELL + REVOLUTIONARY BOTTLE DESIGN "Delicate, floral smell + revolutionary bottle designI just received mine today! I’m so happy with the quick delivery. The packaging is simple and not too flashy which I appreciate from an environmental perspective. The smell is sophisticated and not alcohol-heavy so I don’t have a headache from it. The bottle design is probably my favorite part. The relief sculpture of a mother and daughter feels elegant and a nod to the world’s oldest art history. It’s everything I hoped for and more. I wanted to give it to my mom for Mother’s Day but now I want to keep it! I’m in love."

SMELLS SIMILAR TO ALL HER OTHERS "Smells similar to all her others. This company had a very cookie cutter scent line. I own 10 scents and out of all 10 only 2 of them stand out to me. This perfume smells like dry hotel soap with a garden of flowers (jasmine and gardenia).... all of them always smell like pure gardenia. Its not the worst but nothing special."

In conclusion, this perfume is perfect for you if you like woody or white floral scents. The bottle is according to most aesthetically pleasing and lives up to their expectations. Finally, this could also potentially be a great Mother's Day gift due to the symbolic meaning behind it.
