Kim Kardashian’s company KKW Fragrance just dropped three new Kimoji perfumes. But now one of her new perfumes is being dubbed a rip-off.
The company Vibes Media is suing Kardashian for allegedly stealing their logo. Their logo is the word “Vibes” in white bubble font in a black speech bubble. It looks similar to the Vibes Kimoji perfume KKW Fragrance dropped earlier this week. The Vibes perfume is part of the Kimoji fragrance drop that included Kimoji Peach and Kimoji Cherry.
According to The Blast, Vibes Media is claiming that KKW Fragrance stole their logo, which was trademarked in 2012. In the court documents, Vibes claims that KKW Fragrance “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 Logo.”
The media company is also claiming that Kardashian’s company is using their logo to promote their product on social media. Kim has posted the perfume bottle on her personal Instagram and Twitter along with her company sharing the bottle.
Vibes Media is seeking an unspecific amount in damages along with wanting the company to stop selling the perfume. They also want KKW Fragrance to turn over the unsold Vibes perfume so they can be destroyed.
Kimoji Vibes’ opening notes are sparkling bergamot, watery melon and pineapple. The heart notes are apple blossom, peony petals and jasmine. The finishing notes are cedarwood, sun-kissed amber and musk. Ther 50 mL perfume retail for $45 a bottle.
