Michael Kors For Men Extreme Journey Eau de Toilette Review

Review of Michael Kors For Men Extreme Journey Eau de Toilette

As the name suggests, Michael Kors Extreme Journey Eau de Toilette really takes you on a sensory adventure, transporting you to exotic deserts with its spicy-warm fragrance. A traditionally masculine scent, images of cowboys in old Western films sprung to mind when I first smelt Michael Kors Extreme Journey. As the fragrance settles on the skin, it seems more refined and modern but still has a leathery heat and effervescent spicy tone to it, which is truly intoxicating.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Subtly spicy pink pepper plays with refreshing grapefruit in the opening top notes, which are balanced by aromatic nuances that draw you in to explore the rest of the fragrance. Deep woody tones, patchouli and papyrus warm the heart of the scent, which is powered by a Desert Woods Accord. The sensual leather of the base creates a powerful, rugged experience as the raw aroma partners with resinous myrrh and oak moss for a wild, textured finish.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Inspired by a thrilling race through Saharan sands, the warm and exotic scent takes several exciting twists and turns as different notes rise to the surface, mimicking the rising of the sun until the final raw woody fragrance warms the skin.


You Will Love This If…

If you love rich and powerful fragrances that have an unmistakable heat and spice, you’ll love Michael Kors For Men Extreme Journey. Sure to elicit a ‘who smells so good?’ as you walk in the room, the fragrance is a thrilling combination of cedarwood and leathery spice.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Imagine rich leather in the midday heat: Michael Kors Extreme Journey is similar to Acqua di Parma Colonia Leather but the leather base is lifted by the wood and spice.


Is Michael Kors For Men Extreme Journey Unisex?

Though any fragrance can be worn by anybody, the Extreme Journey Eau de Toilette is marketed towards men because of its traditionally masculine leather and wood base notes.


What’s The Longevity Like?

Powerful with just one spritz, Michael Kors Extreme Journey transforms into a lighter fragrance once it’s settled on the skin, whilst still maintaining a deep earthy tone that isn’t overpowering.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Sleek and sophisticated, the Extreme Journey bottle looks like it belongs in the sand dunes of the Saharan. The lighter centre gives dimension, looking like a sunbeam pushing the darkness to the sides, whilst the square shape adds a modern and sophisticated finish.
