Kim Kardashian makes staggering $1 million a minute from sales of her new perfume

Lend us a fiver, would you Kim? Launching her new line of Kimoji fragrances on Tuesday (17 July), Kim Kardashian reportedly managed to rack up an eye-watering $1 million of sales a minute within the first five minutes of the perfumes going on sale. That’s £767,975 in one measly minute – or £3,839,875 in five measly minutes if the figures, which have been obtained by TMZ, are to be believed. Kim introduced the trio of new perfumes – Cherry, Vibes, and Peach, which are modeled after three of her popular Kimojis – this week, with the launch day tying in – of course – with World Emoji Day. Each scent retails for $45, so, er, you do the maths on the sheer amount of units she must’ve managed to shift once the floodgates opened.

Plenty of people have pointed that she’s not had to spend a penny on advertising, either. KKW’s social media standing is so huge and far-reaching that she can essentially advertise anything she wants through one Instagram post before then reaping the benefits. All in all, it wasn’t a bad day’s work for Kim – but it’s not the first time that she’s managed to rack up sales of $1 million a minute.

Awkward times for Kim Kardashian! The rising beauty mogul is reportedly being sued for allegedly stealing the logo for “Vibes”—her new KKW fragrance. Per TMZ, the lawsuit is from marketing company Vibes Media, who (according to The Blast) claim they trademarked the logo in 2012, and that Kim “has been marketing, promoting, and is now selling a Vibes perfume. The Vibes perfume comes in a bottle that is a close facsimile of the Registered Vibes .TMZ reports that Vibes Media is seeking damages, and want all Kim’s unsold Vibes perfumes destroyed. Kim has yet to respond publicly, and is basically just out here all: Logo.
