If you aren’t keeping up with the Kardashians, an easy way to figure out what’s going on in Kim’s world is to take a whiff of her newest scent.

“I can tell where I was in life when I made each perfume,” Kim Kardashian told PEOPLE during an early-morning chat on Wednesday. “Every fragrance means something different to me.”

Her newest creation, Glam, was released this summer, but the reality star started working on it more than a year ago — right before she began filming season seven of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (that also happens to be around the same time she began dating Kanye West). “My personality and my mood was light and fun — and I can see that [in Glam],” she adds.

Kardashian’s happiness translated into the juicy, fruity and white floral scent. “It’s a little bit more electric [than the others]. It’s the most energetic,” she explained. Her mood also was reflected in the bottle. “We made it a brighter pink because I wanted it to be a little loud … It’s the pop of color in my fragrances.”

Prior to creating Glam, the star worked on her fourth scent, True Reflection, which is a heavier aroma. “I know where I was when I made that. It was quiet and a little sad,” Kardashian said. (Maybe her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries had some influence on it?) But she was quick to add, “Glam, though, was me waking up.”

All of Kardashian’s scents are available at Perfumania and Tell us: Are you surprised Kardashian has such a personal connection to her fragrances?
