Anyone who knows me can attest to how much I adore all things Michael Kors. From watching him critique new designers on Project Runway (who else used to watch that show when it aired here in the UK?) to spending hours and hours in his stand alone stores and department stores both here and in the US, perusing his watches, handbags, shoes and cosmetics, I'm definitely a fan. If you happened to read my Florida Fashion Haul post this time last year then you might remember that I made two amazing new additions to my existing MK collection with my Mini Selmas. I also absolutely love the Glam Jasmine scent, which I've featured a couple of times on here in the past, so when I saw that three brand new Michael Kors fragrances had been released I was very, very excited, to say the least.
The Gold Fragrance Collection comprises of three unique scents, each of which are so unbelievably striking. And talk about incredible packaging! I mean, just look at how stunning the bottles and even the boxes which house them look. And as soon as I saw the packaging it truly was love at first sight, plus I bet you can guess which one I was transfixed with straight away. You guessed it, the rose gold. And as if the packaging wasn't exquisite and wonderful enough, the scents themselves are unlike any that I've ever smelt before.
24K Brilliant Gold* - I have a feeling that if you're buying perfume for a loved one this Christmas or for any other special upcoming occasion, this particular one will be a surefire hit. It's fruity yet floral which is always a winning combination for me, yet it's incredibly rich without being too overpowering either. The top note is mandarin orange (a favourite of mine), with floral and woody notes to compliment it too.
White Luminous Gold - With top notes of pear, middle notes of jasmine and base notes of amber, White Luminous Gold certainly smells like an oriental/exotic floral scent to me. Even though it's a base note, if you're a fan of amber based scents then this will be the one for you as it really shines through as a standout fragrance in this perfume.
Rose Radiant Gold* - After being won over by the packaging, as I imagine many of us will be, this, again for me, feels like the most nighttime appropriate of the three fragrances in the Gold Collection. It's spicy yet floral but with a hint of musk that gives it that sexy and seductive feel.
As I always say when it comes to my fragrance and perfume reviews, it is pretty tricky to capture and convey exactly how a scent smells via a computer screen, so I would definitely recommend making a trip to your local fragrance counter to test these out for yourself. I've got a pretty good feeling that you won't regret it at all. Plus who doesn't want to check out the fragrance and beauty departments in the run up to Christmas? I certainly get far too hyped up by all of the great gift sets and new releases at this time of year. And these are seriously well worth adding to your Christmas list this year. I know it's only October but surely it isn't too early to be thinking up our Christmas lists now is it?
The three fragrances are available in 30ml (RRP £39), 50ml (RRP £58) and 100ml (RRP £79) bottles, of which both the 50ml and the 100ml bottles have been featured today.
So what do you think of the Michael Kors Gold Fragrance Collection? Which one looks and sounds like it might be your favourite? Have you given any of these a sniff when you've been out shopping yet? And are you a fan of the Michael Kors brand?
