If like everyone else who follows the lives of the Kardashians, had a reminder set for the Kylie Jenner by KKW Fragrance collection launch on 26 April, then you are going to have to wait a little longer. Whilst new release dates haven't been confirmed yet, according to a tweet posted by Kim Kardashian late last night, the perfume is going to be on hold for a while due to it failing a durability test.
Kim 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 made the difficult decision to delay the launch as we should never release a product that did not meet the strictest of quality guidelines."
Fans were first given a little peek into their collaboration in the season 16 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, where we saw Kim and Kylie in a meeting to finalise their chosen fragrance samples and packaging.
At the moment, it isn’t known what the name of the fragrance is, but what we do know is that the shape of the bottle is an XL pair of lips – obviously. Priced at approximately Dhs150 and available in three different shades of pink, the supposed-to-be launch was originally dropping at midday (about 4am GST) on 26 April.
Since Kim's twitter announcement, all of the details of the collaboration have been removed from her KKW Fragrance Instagram account and there has been no word of a future release date.
Despite the pause in production and an unknown date for the drop, we're still hoping it’s soon. Watch this space.
