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!
Michael Kors Sexy Sunset is priced at £58 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
If there is a designer I can always rely on for some serious glamour, it’s Michael Kors, and I have to say, he has completely hit it out of the ball park with the release of his new trio of gold-inspired eau de perfums. I’ve already shared my love about 24k Brilliant Gold, so I thought I would brighten up a dull Monday with the gorgeous Rose Radiant Gold Eau de Parfum!
All three scents are packaged in the most glitzy of bottles. Seriously shiny (and hard to photograph!) these gold bars of bottles deserve prime real estate on every girls’ dressing table!
Described as a fragrance which mixes rich florals and soft musks, Rose Radiant Gold is a seriously glamorous scent! When first applied, Rose Radiant Gold has the most beautiful spicy top notes which feel like a complete departure from my regular fragrance choices. It’s this warmth which makes the perfume absolute perfect if you’re looking for something new to wear as we head into Autumn and Winter. Once the scent develops, the floral notes become more noticeable, making it feel incredibly feminine. As the fragrance wears on, the base musk notes give the fragrance a great longevity, and it makes it feel incredibly sexy to wear too!
Michael Kors Rose Radiant Gold Eau de Parfum will be released on August 19th and will be priced from £39
I’m always excited when Michael Kors updates his beauty products. There aren’t many brands which go for all-out glamour quite like Mr. Kors, so when I heard about the release of three brand new fragrances, I just knew I had to get my hands on them!
The first of the trio I sampled was 24K Gold Eau de Parfum, and thankfully, I wasn’t disappointed! Packaged in a huge gold bullion of a bottle, 24K Gold Eau de Parfum is perfect if you’re looking for a sophisticated fragrance which is perfect to enjoy during the day and evening. Michael Kors describes the parfum as a floral fruity fragrance, and it’s really beautiful! When first applied, I get a gorgeous surge of fresh citrus which comes courtesy of the mandarin orange top notes. As the fragrance warms up on the skin, the sweet floral notes become more noticeable, and it smells super clean and fresh. It’s one of those fragrance you want to keep sniffing at once you’ve applied it! As the fragrance continues to develop, the woody base notes get a little stronger without becoming overpowering. Instead, they just give the perfume a warmth and depth which feels seriously glamorous!
Michael Kors 24K Gold Eau de Parfum will be released soon, with prices from £39
