The perfume, available for $40, was originally set to drop on April 26, the same day Taylor Swift’s music video for “ME!” was released. Coincidentally, the updated release date is also when Swift’s new album, Lover, will debut.
In April, the reality star explained in a statement that the launch date was pushed back due to problems with bottle durability.
“We are so excited to launch our fragrance collaboration that we’ve been working on for such a long time. Sadly, we found out today from the manufacturer that a few of our bottles did not pass durability tests while on the assembly line and we have paused production while the team explores the issue further,” the statement read.
“Together, we have made the difficult decision to delay the launch as we would never release a product that did not meet the strictest of quality guidelines,” the statement continued. “We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we have a new launch date! Thank you for your understanding and support always. Love, Kim & Kylie.”
