Kylie Minogue's perfume Darling.

In 2006, Minogue signed her first perfume endorsement deal with Coty, Inc. She launched her first fragrance Darling in November 2006.[10] According to Thierry Wasser, she said she wanted to combine "strength and movement in order to reflect the intensity of my encounter with Kylie through this fragrance."[11] With its design described as "glamorous, dynamic and heavy", it received generally favourable reviews from buyers.[11][12] She launched the fragrance in Melbourne and Sydney and later released an EP titled Darling, a promotional release that came with the fragrance for free.[13] In 2007, Sweet Darling and Sexy Darling, sub-labels of the original fragrance were released, though it wasn't as successful as its proceeded product.

In 2008, her fourth fragrance with Coty. Inc, Showtime was released. According to Minogue, she wanted a perfume that "could be a mirror of her personality" and described as her "second skin."[14] The fragrance, however proved to be her least successful perfume. The following fragrance, Couture was released.[15] According to Minogue, the name "Couture" was inspired by fashion.[16]

In 2009, Minogue begun work for her sixth fragrance. However, it was revealed in Kylie's description that the perfume will be for both genders. The fragrance; Inverse For Men was released.[17] It was Minogue's first men's fragrance, and currently her only. The packaging is described as "glossy" and "sparkly", and both packaging is the same for each gender, but the color being the only difference.[17] Minogue's seventh fragrance, Pink Sparkle was released in 2012, two months before her eleventh studio album Aphrodite was released.[18] According to Minogue, she wanted a "elegant, feel-good that takes you to a wonderful place of optimism and vitality."[18] The bottle is designed as a champagne bottle, which the bottle top is designed as a corkscrew. She promoted the fragrance on The Paul O'Grady Show the same year. In 2011, her ninth fragrance Dazzling Darling was announced, responding back to the Darling range. Minogue stated that out of all her fragrance, she comparing Dazzling Darling to herself, saying its "beautifully feminine and alluring" and that its "very soft and intimate."[19]

In 2012, she released a fragrance called Music Box, which was a celebration fragrance for her K25 Anniversary, which is an anniversary of her music career spanning for twenty-five years.[20] The perfume was described as a "refined and sophisticated" fragrance. Minogue was inspired by her fascination of music box's when she was younger.[20]

Music[edit]

Her next book, La La La, released to capitalise on Kylie's successful 2001/2002 era. It had moderate commercial success, and had sold a moderate number of books. A paperback edition was later released with additional photographs.

Minogue signed a deal with Puffin to release a children's book in 2006. Later that year, Minogue released The Showgirl Princess. It was commercially successful, and was reported to sell a huge volume of books. The book promotes positive attitudes to children who look up to Minogue as an idol.

A new bedding range was released in September 2011 under the Kylie at Home range.[22] The range currently includes products such as curtains, bedding, pillows, towels, candles and lamp shades.
