Michael Kors has been having a bit of a moment over the last few years. The accessible price points make it a designer brand that the masses can buy into, while the classic designs mixed with edgy metallic detailing make them always on trend. I’m a big fan of their handbags, but I had no idea they did fragrance until these three new additions landed on my doorstep. The new collection features three variants that allow you to show the different sides of your personality: ‘Sexy’ is an Amber based fragrance that contains seductive notes of Sandalwood, ‘Glam’ is a classic Jasmine based scent that also features Cassis, while ‘Sporty’ contains uplifting citrus notes of Mandarin, Orange Flower and Patchouli.
The bottles capture the Michael Kors woman completely; the clear glass showcases the delicately tinted fragrance inside, while the golden typeface makes the whole bottle sparkle. With the addition of an embossed golden lid, these are definitely a little bit bling. Although I expected the scents inside to be a little OTT, all three are completely wearable and relatively subtle. They’re also more mature than I anticipated, containing deeper muskier notes and complementary Sandalwood/Jasmine throughout – this makes all three scents part of the same fragrance journey, meaning they could also be layered to create a whole new perfume story.
These packs were a blooming nightmare to photograph (white, transparent and metallic are above my photography skills!) but they’re so pretty I can only urge you to check them out in your local perfume store. Each fragrance has its own subtle metallic colour that’s used on the packaging and bottle itself, including yellow gold, rose gold and a blue-gold. With the timeless scents and sophisticated Jasmine notes, this could be a fragrance range to investigate during your New Year Resolution phase: what better way to start a year than with a new fragrance portfolio?
The three fragrances are available in all good perfumiers nationwide, priced around £38.00 for 30ml, £55.00 for 50ml and £75.00 for 100ml. Grab them via Escentual.com for up to 20% off!
