What's Your Secret, Kathy Hilton?

Behold a bizarre extension of the "famous for being famous" phenomenon. Kathy Hilton, who is famous for marrying into hotel royalty and of course, being the mother of Paris, has launched a signature fragrance.

Kathy Hilton My Secret is available at Macy's, where a 1.7 oz bottle is $52. My Secret's notes include mandarin, white freesia, peony, rose, star jasmine, apricot leaf, sandalwood, vanilla musk and gilded amber.

The bottle is rather juvenile, and the logo looks like the monogram on a hotel soap (kinda like the Waldorf Astoria, which is a Hilton hotel, hmmm. But cheesier.). I can't figure out who they're targeting with this one; someone like my mom, who's around Kathy's age, wouldn't be caught dead with this bottle on her shelf. But young girls who might like the bottle probably don't give a hoot about Kathy Hilton. What gives?

I'm inclined to snark about this fragrance, especially after reading a press release that calls Kathy "synonymous with elegance and sophistication," but I'm in too good a mood to do it. So, I'll leave it to you.

I know, that was mine + my mom's first thought too, but Vera Wang's looks cute. Kathy Hilton's looks like something you'd find in the Barbie aisle at Toys R Us in 1994.

but Princess smells classy, whereas My Secret will smell like sweat and merlot.

Ha! You beat me to it! That was my first thought, too.
miao0726 Re: ???29th-Jan-2008 03:38 pm (UTC)
that is exactly what i thought when i saw it !
rinygrin Re: ???29th-Jan-2008 04:36 pm (UTC)
I love Princess, Kathy's must smell like her vagina dipped in a botanical garden.
darlingdivine Re: ???29th-Jan-2008 05:43 pm (UTC)
My thoughts exactly! At least Princess smells good. I don't have much hope for Kathy Hilton.
florecita86 Re: ???30th-Jan-2008 07:02 am (UTC)
Haha,she totes copied Vera Wang! That was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the bottle. Do I hear a law-suit in the future...
penfold 29th-Jan-2008 07:42 am (UTC)

I'm so happy I went almost 19 years with never having to see that.

Paris in 20 years.

Uh, the bottle is pretty...but yea, I would never waste my money on it. Instead, I wasted money on SJP's Lovely :D

I have a lipgloss that smells like catpiss. No, seriously. It's a DiorKiss thing in "Lychee Rose" and it smells like ammonia, like a dirty litterbox.

I only wear it when I'm sick and thus can't smell anything.
