Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has filed a complaint in a New York federal court against Perfume Palace Inc, alleging that their ‘Paris Paris’ line of fragrances are “identical or confusingly similar to” her own line of products. Paris and Parlux Perfumes LLC, the company that produces her line of perfumes, claim that the products could cause consumer confusion. A Paralux Perfume LLC agent discovered ‘Paris Paris’ at a trade show in Las Vegas and bought some samples upon noticing the similarities to Paris Hilton’s line.
Hilton’s fragrance lines have earned a reputed $1.5 billion dollars since they launched. Once known for her hard-partying and a notorious 2003 sex tape ‘leaked’ to the media, Hilton has since gone on to prove herself a successful business woman, following in the footsteps of her hotel property tycoon great grandfather, Conrad Hilton
