So this weekend was the first one which truly felt like it could be the start of spring. Sure, it was ridiculously cold, but it was beautifully sunny with bright blue skies and no clouds in sight! And to celebrate I broke out my bottle of Michael Kors’ newest fragrance – Sexy Sunset.
Before I even get to the perfume, I have to comment on how beautiful the packaging is. Much like Kors’ other scents, it comes in a beautiful glass bottle topped off with a golden cap. Unlike its predecessors though, Sexy Sunset’s glass bottle is a kind of pinky-orange ombre, and it’s so pretty, I’ve been keeping out on the vanity.
Thankfully though, the perfume itself is as pretty as the packaging. Described as being inspired by ‘the radiant glow of a sunset’ this is one of those perfumes which makes you feel like your off on an exotic beach somewhere.
When you first apply the perfume, you get a whoosh of light fruits. It’s a juicy blend of pear, freesia and blackcurrant which smells almost edible. Then, once the fragrance settles down, the heart notes of gardenia, peony, jasmine and rose become more noticeable. This mix of white florals and fruit feel so light and fresh to wear, and I easily get 4-5 hours of wear before I needed to freshen up. The base notes combine cedar, sandalwood, ambrette and vanilla, which give a lovely warmth and longevity to the perfume. Sexy Sunset is such a gem of a fragrance, I can’t wait to keep wearing this well into the Spring!
