What we say:
I’ve been admiring Michael Kors on Project Runway for years, and as a Michael Kors garment is a little out of my reach at this stage of my life, I got extremely excited to try out this fragrance when it became available. At a first spritz, it wasn’t what I expected. To me, Michael Kors is the ultimate American designer – I expected California-inspired sea salt and aquatic notes, but instead, I got a sensual blend of florals, woods and musk.
Not only was I pleasantly surprised (I’ve always been a floral kinda girl), but I was intrigued by the scent’s composition. I immediately thought I smelt patchouli, but it actually turned out to be tuberose. That mixed with freesia, peony, cashmere woods and vetiver results in a fragrance that’s sexy without being overt, and feminine without being too girly.
As it’s an EDP it lasts extremely long, and I didn’t have to re-spray at all throughout the day. I really enjoyed wearing the scent and I think it works in both hot and cold weather. I also love the sturdy, classic bottle – very Michael Kors in its simplicity and functionality!
