Kim Kardashian started out her career as a sex tape star, moving swiftly along to being the main bitch in her reality show. Since then she has bagged a rapper husband, had children and birthed a cosmetics brand, KKW Beauty. Her makeup collections sometimes sell out in minutes, and her fragrances (some of which are in bottles shaped like her naked torso) are also popular. Now Kim is branching out into homeware (kind of) because she is releasing a scented candle that matches one of her perfumes. Just call her Martha Stewart!

Kim Kardashian is no doubt so chuffed with the sales of her fragrances that she has decided to add a scented candle to her beauty line too. On 27 September the KKW Beauty Crystal Gardenia candle officially goes on sale, and it is inspired by one of her signature scents.
The candle can either be bought on its own (for a cool R360, depending on the temperamental exchange rate) or in a bundle with the matching scent.
Want to get an idea of what the Kim Kardashian candle smells like before you decide to import one? Here’s what it says on the KKW Fragrance website.
‘A voluptuous, lush and feminine fragrance. Crystal Gardenia offers a top note of water lily evoking a lush, wet petally effect to the opening. Timeless gardenia, tiara flower and velvet tuberose bring a trio of white florals to the heart offering a narcotic opulence and grand sillage. Warm woods and skin musk provide a contouring effect to the signature finish.’
The scent of this candle sounds absolutely perfect for the upcoming summer season, tbh. But shipping ain’t cheap (and neither are customs taxes). Luckily, there are alternatives available to make your home smell as bougie – or at least *almost* as bougie – as a Kardashians.
