Here we have a wonderful example of a beautifully executed collection of fragrances. The Michael Kors Gold Collection is a trio of fragrances, all housed in “gold-bar-style” packaging that are just so lovely to look at, they make you want to grab and spray – so I think it’s safe to say that if Michael Kors wanted to create a perfume that captivates the majority of the senses, the task has been accomplished!
The three fragrances are all gold-themed, as the name of the collection suggests, so you have White Luminous Gold, 24K Brilliant Gold and Rose Radiant Gold, all of which are glamour to look at with a fragrance to match. Aesthetically, my favourite is White Luminous Gold as I love the clean, silver finish. However, it’s my least favourite fragrance of the three, which is surprising really as it has jasmine at it’s heart and pear at the top, but the base note of amber is a little too overwhelming for me.
24K Brilliant Gold is the one that I think will be the most popular as it’s a very lovely scent, with floral and woody notes at the heart and base respectively, and a lovely burst of citrus mandarin at the top. I happily wear this one and think it’s especially suited to day wear, but my favourite of the trio is definitely Rose Radiant Gold, and not just because the packaging is pink! Rose Radiant Gold is definitely the sexiest of the three thanks to it’s spicy, musky notes that surround a floral heart. It’s a lovely, gently feminine scent that isn’t too in your face, but still packs a punch making it a great choice for night time, although I have been wearing it during the day. The gorgeous Michael Kors Gold Fragrance collection is out now, with each bottle available in three sizes starting at £39 here – link.
Whilst we’re on the subject of Michael Kors, if you happen to be in London over the next couple of days then I’d recommend heading to Debenhams, Oxford Street where you’ll find a Michael Kors beauty pop-up shop. There you’ll find all the fragrances and beauty collection, so you can sniff away to your heart’s content. I’m particularly keen to get my hands on the Glam Jasmine scent – could that sound anything more like my kind of fragrance? You’ve only got until this Saturday (19th September 2015) so if you’ve always wondered what the Michael Kors beauty collection is like, now’s your chance to see it all in person.
