Here’s something you don't hear every day: Kim Kardashian West is my idol. The entrepreneur had been inspiring me since the first season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and still does to this day with the everlasting success of her beauty empire, KKW Beauty.
My love for the Kardashians begins with Kim, but definitely doesn’t stop with her; sisters Kourtney and Khloé are just as inspiring to me, too. Khloé and Kourtney are entrepreneurs in themselves — Khloé's clothing line, Good American and Kourtney's website, Poosh have been super successful. So when my editor asked me to speak with all three sisters about their collaborative collection with KKW Fragrance, I had to take a lap around the office before the reality set in: In just days away, I would be chatting with my idols.
But enough about me — let’s get back to the fragrance collection. In natural Kardashian fashion, the line is called the Diamond Collection (we'll get to why later).
Kim partnered with Kourtney and Khloé to create three new perfumes (one for each sister) for her brand KKW Fragrance. The collection introduces Pink Diamond (Khloé's fragrance), Yellow Diamond (Kourtney’s fragrance) and pure Diamond (Kim’s fragrance). The KKW Fragrance Diamond Collection features three perfumes encased in luxurious diamond-shaped bottles. Each scent is individually inspired by and unique to Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé. Kim's Diamond scent is a classic floral aroma, Khloé's Pink Diamond features notes of jasmine and tuberose, and Kourtney's Yellow Diamond is as sweet as candy.
I was lucky enough to talk with the three sisters and get the exclusive details on the collection.
ALLURE: Why did you all decide to create individual fragrances?
KHLOÉ: "This is Kim’s world and expertise; she came to us as her sisters and came up with the idea of the Diamond Collection. We picked the notes to put together our individual scents."
A: Why the diamond theme? How did you each pick your bottle designs?
KOURTNEY: "Kim thought the pink spoke true to me and my personality, and Khloé reminded us of a yellow diamond, and Kim is just a flawless diamond."
Here are all the fragrances in the Diamond Collection:
KKW Fragrance Diamond (Kim)
Kim's fragrance has notes of wild armoise, a very green fresh scent, and sugar-coated ginger, which give off a tropical, floral vibe. Imagine walking into a flower market that only sells the most expensive flowers. That's what Diamond smells like: a true classic, just like Kim.

KKW Fragrance Yellow Diamond (Kourtney)
Kourtney's scent, Yellow Diamond, is the sweetest of the bunch. Makes sense, seeing as its top note of golden currant berries hits the senses first. If a candy-like scent is just your type, we've got your match right here.

KKW Fragrance Pink Diamond (Khloé)
Youngest sister Khloé's scent is my personal favorite. It transports me to my grandma's yard in Cyprus, Greece, where jasmine vines sprawl up the sides of her house. The fragrance's primary notes include sweet jasmine, lilac, and tuberose, providing a very sweet-yet-seductive finish.

A: Are there any specific scents that remind you of your parents?
KIM: "Gardenia reminds me of our dad, I think. That’s why I’m such a big fan of it. He used to always have a bowl filled with water and gardenia lilies in front of his house. Our mom, she is a heavy tuberose kind of girl; she has a very specific kind of scent."
A: What were your go-to scents in high school?
KOURTNEY: "My go-to scent was Benetton Tribu."
KIM: "I was right there with Kourt; we would share the same scent. Our dad used to go to New York a lot, so every time he would come back he’d buy us a fragrance, and Tribu was one of those."
KHLOÉ: "My go-to scent was definitely Angel by Mugler."
A: Are there any scents that you always disagree on?
KIM/KOURTNEY/KHLOÉ: "We despise the scent of black licorice, but our mom loves it."
A: You wore matching hairstyles in the campaign for the collection. What inspired the look?
KIM: "I’m very protective of our image, and I’m always trying to do something new and fresh then what we’ve done before. I really wanted Khloé to go dark and wear a dark wig in the picture — she wouldn’t dye it. I didn't expect her to. The texture is Khloé's natural hair, though. I wanted curly hair on all of us [because] my daughter North has curly hair, and she always asks me to try it out so it can look like hers. It was really fun to show her that hair when we were done."
When my time with Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé was over, I realized I may love them even more than before. These three not only launched a line of fragrances that speaks to themselves and their own everyday scents, but they launched a collection that’s affordable to their consumers.
Each scent will retail for $40 each, or if you're a true Kardashian stan, you can buy the bundle with all three perfumes for $110. The KKW Fragrance Diamond Collection will be available on November 8 at 2 p.m. PST (that's 11 a.m. for East coast folks) on kkwfragrance.com. Get your wallets ready — inventory is going to go fast.
