Michael Kors Fragrance: Sporty Sexy Glam fragrance collection
Three individual fragrances take the Michael Kors woman from weekend chic to center stage, this season.
SPORTY CITRUS is crisp with orange and mandarin at the forefront, while warm woods and white florals linger in the background. Creamy, woodsy notes are the olfactive equivalent of luscious nudes, a famous hallmark color of the Michael Kors look. It communicates the irresistible appeal of the confident, casual woman who puts herself together with a polished ease, and always has fun doing it.
STYLISH AMBER puts the spotlight on sumptuous amber wrapped in sandalwood and musk, against a bright backdrop of dazzling orange, mandarin and white florals. Inspiration was pulled from the bold colors that often highlight a Michael Kors fashion collection. These pops of color in the iconic images of the Michael Kors brand express undeniable pleasure and instant sex appeal.
GLAM JASMINE gives center stage to Kors’ beloved floral note, jasmine, while warm woodsy notes and sparkling citrus are less prominent. The GLAM Collection embodies the woman who amplifies her evening with color-concentrated looks in rich, deep hues like plum and berry. The fragrance, like the fashion statement, is overtly feminine, designed for a woman who likes turning heads.
