The fabulous staff allowed me to stick Kim K’s two fragrances, Kim Kardashian and Gold, under their sniffers for a staffer smell-off! See which perfume won — by a nose.

We told you about Kim Kardashian‘s first fragrance, we told you about her second, and now it’s time to see which one is the favorite at!

First, let’s meet the contenders:

Kim’s first fragranceKim Kardashian

Notes: Mandarin, honeysuckle, orange blossom, jasmine, tuberose, gardenia, tonka bean, jacaranda wood, vanilla orchid, musk and sandalwood.
Think: Musky floral

Kim’s second fragrance: Limited edition Kim Kardashian Gold

Notes: Grapefruit, pink pepper, bergamot, jasmine, violet, amber, rose, patchouli, sandalwood, and musk.
Think: Citrusy

18 HollywoodLife staffers were polled and …

Seven staffers chose Kim Kardashian as their favorite, meaning eleven chose Kim Kardashian Gold! A win for Gold!

Our staffers were fairly split on the decision. Each person had their own reasons for choosing their favorite Kim K fragrance!

“I liked the Kim Kardashian by Kim Kardashian one because I thought it was the more feminine scent,” our Office Manager Brooke Peoples tells me, “but you cant go wrong with either one.”

“Kim’s Gold fragrance has such a light, clean scent,” says Fashion Editor Katrina Mitzeliotis, “It’s very wearable, especially in the summer! Her signature scent would work better for a big night out — it’s definitely not for everyday.”

Our reporter Chloe says, “I love Kim’s original perfume because it’s stronger and has a thick Gardenia scent, which I love!”
