Michael Kors Gorgeous! is a fragrance designed to inspire positivity and confidence, and as you would expect, it smells absolutely gorgeous! Michael Kors lover or not, you’ll adore this self-affirming fragrance; the bold yet effortlessly sexy Eau de Parfum celebrates women for everything they are. This is seen throughout the design, name and scent, all of which are intended to inspire confidence and optimism in you. And take it from me – as someone wearing it right now – it really does!
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Michael Kors is known for its glamorous clothes and statement accessories, and the precious metals, clean lines and the modern, tobacco-coated twist on a classic floral bouquet found in Gorgeous! all there to remind you of Michael Kors’ signature style.
The bright and optimistic fragrance opens with fresh, juicy notes of bergamot, mandarin and zesty citrus, which are enhanced by an exhilarating splash of pink pepper. The relaxed heart of tobacco leaves a smokiness that clings to a bouquet of white florals made up of rich ylang-ylang and honeyed neroli (orange blossom), but it’s the sweet tuberose and heady jasmine that really take centre stage here.
As you wear the scent throughout the day, an ultra-woody base showcasing the likes of cashmeran, cedar, cedarwood, suede, tonka bean and guaiac wood surfaces, while the mysterious and smoky tobacco accord continues to linger on the skin.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
The story of Michael Kors Gorgeous! is a real page-turner – that’s all about women, and how everything we do is inspirational and beautiful. The face of the campaign is Sara Sampaio, a Victoria’s Secret Angel known for her profile in fashion and positive attitude toward female empowerment, making her an embodiment of the values of Gorgeous!
Just like the uplifting advert, Gorgeous! will make you feel like you have the confidence to dance through the streets in crisp nude suits, while feeling drop-dead gorgeous!
You Will Love This If…
If you’re looking for a sexy floral that will make people ask, “what are you wearing?” as soon as you walk into the room, you’ll love Gorgeous! With a similar feeling to best-selling fragrance, YSL Libre, you know that this will be a crowd-pleaser, but the addition of smoky tobacco makes it just that little bit more mysterious.
Michael Kors Gorgeous! Smells Similar To:
As I mentioned above, Michael Kors Gorgeous! feels like a more classically feminine YSL Libre. Somehow, Libre’s androgynous lavender tone seems to linger in the background (even though it isn’t listed in the notes!) and the sexiness has been amped up with the smooth, laid-back tobacco note. Like Libre, the creamy sweetness of Michael Kors’ fragrance feels extremely calming and is loaded with a whole host of uplifting and classy white florals. Another fragrance it reminds me of – but isn’t as heroed as Libre – is Lancome La Nuit Tresor Nude, but without the coconut tropical vibe!
Is Gorgeous! Unisex?
Michael Kors Gorgeous! is designed with women in mind, but it can be worn and loved by all genders who want to start their day with a spritz of positivity!
What’s The Longevity Like?
Gorgeous! stays on the skin for around 4 hours. When I tried it, I sprayed the Eau de Parfum in the morning and topped up at lunch to keep the optimism and confidence going.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
The small engraving around the bottle’s neck – stating “Hello Gorgeous!” – is there to greet you every time you pop off the lid to remind you: I am gorgeous! Plus, the rose gold detailing and clean lines gives us that modern, glamorous feel that we all associate with Michael Kors’ classic watches, bags and clothing – which fans will know and love.
