Michael Kors: Very Hollywood, Eau de Parfum
It was Michael Kors name that first attracted me to this perfume, I am a bit of a fan of 'Project Runway' where he is one of the featured judges. This was the first of his perfumes that I was aware of, however, I believe there are a few previous fragrance available.
Personally, I use this as a day perfume, I prefer something heavier and muskier for an evening out. This is a rather sweet fragrance but not too floral and it isn't very heavy or too strong even on first spray.
I don't think the name suits the perfume, when I first saw the name I immediately thought that this would be a night time fragrance, something suitable for the red carpet. That's not what this is, it is a lovely perfume but the name, in my opinion is misleading.
The specific olfactory notes include;
Top Notes: mandarin, frozen bergamot, raspberry.
Heart Notes: moist jasmine, ylang ylang, gardenia, irisroot.
Base Notes: creamy amber, white moss, vetiver.
The slightly fruity smells and jasmine really combine together to make a lovely smelling perfume. Overall I think this has a pretty average longevity for a eau de parfum, which always should last longer than a eau de toilette. When you spray this it does stay around for the afternoon, without the need to constantly re-apply.
A bottle doesn't necessarily put me off a perfume but I do like to get a fragrance that ticks all the boxes and that includes how the bottle looks. This isn't one of my favourite bottles, but it is still pretty and feels chunky and expensive. As you can see from the picture above it is a rather square (ish) shape with a decorative clear cut glass which allows you to see the slightly pinky perfume. It's always nice to see how much you have left, makes you appreciate it that bit more when you come to the end.
This is quite a pricey perfume typically retailing £50 for a 50ml bottle. However, it is always best to shop around for perfume because there are some bargains to be had. This perfume does last for quite a while and it does smell lovely, if the price doesn't put you off then do go and try this fragrance, it really is lovely.
I am going to give this four out of five stars. If I had to sum this up I would describe it as sweet, girlie and light. It makes a fantastic day and summer perfume.
