The flour-bombing incident at a recent launch party for the fragrance True Reflection is just the latest trying episode in what’s been a year of extreme highs and lows for reality star Kim Kardashian that included a storybook wedding and a divorce 72 days later. It’s enough to make anybody want to press the pause button.
“I definitely think I’m in a reflective period in my life, probably more so than any other period,” said Kardashian. That contemplative mood inspired Kardashian and Lighthouse Beauty, her fragrance licensee, to create True Reflection, Kardashian’s fourth fragrance since 2009, and the first to solely target prestige distribution. It will roll out to all Lord & Taylor doors by June, but will officially launch at the retailer’s Manhattan flagship store on Fifth Avenue in the fall.
