In what seemed to be the ultimate troll, Kim Kardashian announced on Monday, April 15, that her new fragrance collaboration with her sister Kylie Jenner is coming out on April 26 — the same day Taylor Swift is dropping new music.
“KKW FRAGRANCE X KYLIE launching 4/26 at NOON on kkwfragrance.com,” Kim captioned a photo of herself spooning Kylie on Instagram. “Three colorful bottles in nude, pink and red. These lip-shaped fragrances offer notes of red lotus blossoms, liquid amber, and peony. $40.”
Taylor Swift fans objected.
But alas, has has delayed her perfume launch date due to bottle issues.
Kim posted the following message on Twitter:
“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 have made the difficult decision to delay the launch as we would never release a product that did not meet the strictest of quality guidelines.”
“We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we have a new launch date!”
Somehow I don’t think that Taylor Swift fans are going to buy that excuse.
