Michael Kors Perfume

The original Michael Kors perfume is my guilty pleasure. It's a lusty tuberose fragrance and no messing. You don't need much as it's potent stuff, but it's truly wonderful.

A bottle of Michael Kors perfume has been standing lonely and neglected in my bathroom cabinet since the end of last year. I rarely have the chance to wear it as I sample new fragrances most days. But today I needed some familiarity and comfort. Michael Kors perfume fits the bill perfectly.
The original Michael Kors perfume was released in 2000 and developed by perfumer Laurent Le Guernec. It's no surprise that Le Guernec is the creator of a whole host of successful fragrances including Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely, Marc Jacob's Splash Rain and a whole raft for the Bond No. 9 range including Chelsea Flowers and Andy Warhol Montauk.
The description for Michael Kors perfume includes notes of freesia, incense, tuberose, creamy flowers, soft woods and musks. There's no doubt that this is a 'big' perfume. Regular my readers will know that I'm not generally a fan of the strong stuff. But the sexiness and subtlety of tuberose combined with the other floral elements and incense are fiercely compelling.
The most recent release from Michael Kors is 'Very Hollywood', which shares the basic structure of with the original Michael Kors perfume, but opens with a full on bubblegum note. It will be interesting to see if Very Hollywood is as successful as the original Michael Kors perfume.

For a similarly powerful, but somewhat different tuberose, try Houbigant's Quelques Fleurs L'Original. It's a sexy fragrance too.
