Kanye West inspired Kim Kardashian's latest perfume.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star began researching aromas for her ''electric'' scent 'Glam' at the beginning of her relationship with the 'Mercy' rapper and her excitement had a huge effect on the scent.

She told People.com on Wednesday (24.10.12): ''I can tell where I was in life when I made each perfume. Every fragrance means something different to me.

''My personality and my mood was light and fun -- and I can see that [in Glam]. It's a little bit more electric [than the others]. It's the most energetic.''

The 32-year-old reality TV star - who recently celebrated her birthday in Rome and Venice after being whisked away on a surprise trip by her boyfriend - revealed that her previous perfume 'True Reflection' was much heavier because she was going through her split from estranged husband Kris Humphries after 72-days of marriage at the time it was being produced.

She said: ''I know where I was when I made that. It was quiet and a little sad. Glam, though, was me waking up.''

Kim - who is still struggling to legally end her marriage to Kris - has been dating Kanye for around eight months and she says life with him is perfect.

She said: ''It's so nice to have a best friend in this game who understands everything you're going through. Being with someone I've known for so many years is comforting. He's been there through so many different stages of my life and before I was famous, so this relationship is a different thing entirely. It's good to be aware that he definitely doesn't want anything from me too, because he understands the business.

''I can't even think about being with anyone else than the man I'm with.''
