It’s only been one week since Kim Kardashian’s new KKW Fragrances launched, but the beauty mogul’s Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Citrus and Crystal Gardenia Oud perfumes are already sold out online. Even without actually smelling her scents, Kardashian’s fans trusted the star and purchased every unit of the 300,000 produced for the initial launch. At $35 for the 30-ml. bottle and $60 for the 75 ml., assuming she produced equal amounts of each, that would total up to about $14 million in sales in under a week. Although the products aren’t available on KKWFragrance.com anymore, if you live in the L.A. area, you still may be able to snag one at Violet Grey where a few are still in stock.
