Honestly, I love a bit of bling. The Michael Kors Gold Fragrance Collection is like having bullion bars – these bottles are heavy! Each colour, white gold, 24K gold and rose gold has a different fragrance and one thing is for sure, you will have some polishing to do! These show every single finger print, so every time you touch them, your signature is left behind. Police forensics would love these!
I’m a long time fan of Michael Kors (ever since I saw him on Project Runway being suitably scathing with Nina Garcia) and he just seems to get fragrance exactly right. Starting with 24K Brilliant Gold – it’s all sweetness and flowers; quite a heavy load of both which personally I love. White Luminous Gold is lighter but still has that backdrop of sweetness that’s not all about vanilla, and Rose Radiant is more of the same but with a slightly spicy edge. 24K Brilliant Gold is the one for me – it’s bang on for my taste, and the collection launches on 19th August.
There’s a huge Mario Testino shot campaign to go with this collection (which also includes accessories), so I think you’ll be seeing these chunky bottles of gold everywhere. They are glamorous, they are over the top and if you’re ever in that nude shoe (nobody does nude shoe like Michael Kors), little black dress, gold handbag look, these are the perfect scents to go with it.
Prices start at £39. There’s a little quote on my press release that’s made me laugh – it’s an interview with the man himself in which he is asked, “Do you have any advice for incorporating gold into a head-to-to look?” Instead of saying, DON’T, JUST DON’T, he gamely advises, “… keep the makeup and hairstyle to a minimum.” There’s only one Donatella, right?
