NEW YORK (Reuters) - A fragrance marketing company is suing British supermodel Naomi Campbell for breach of contract, saying she kept millions of dollars in profits that she owed the company for perfumes it helped her develop.

Campbell "has made millions of dollars from the sale of fragrances and cosmetics products conceptualized, created, developed and marketed with the assistance of" Moodform Mission, said the lawsuit, filed by Moodform on Monday in New York State Supreme Court.

A representative for Campbell said the model "categorically denies the allegations made by Moodform Mission."

The fragrances at issue are Naomi Campbell, Cat Deluxe and Seductive Elixir.

Moodform said Campbell sent regular payments, as was required by her contract, to the company from 2001 to 2008, but that those payments abruptly stopped and that Campbell has ignored communications from the company since then.
