Former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon is getting into the beauty business. The model and reality star will release her first fragrance, In the Spirit Of, on the shopping website Opensky.com in November.
"Some people love to eat. I love to smell," Kelly said about the decision to try her hand at perfume. She describes the fragrance's smell as "warm" and "sexy." The scent also comes in candle and bath oil forms and is available for pre-order on her Opensky page.
A rep from the brand commented, "So many women have never had the opportunity to do a signature scent and a fragrance is all about you, Kelly speaks to the consumer we’re trying to reach."
Since being let go from Housewives along with Jill Zarin and Alex McCord, mom-of-two Kelly has stayed busy designing jewelry and writing books. Her most recent book, I Can Make You Hot! The Supermodel Diet, was published last year.
Her pal and former costar LuAnn de Lesseps attended the fragrance launch in NYC this week, and Kelly will reportedly appear in several episodes of Real Housewives this season alongside her friend.
