IMBB Sponsored Product Review
I still remember the first time I visited IMBB for a review about a Lakme product which was actually a total dud and that review saved me from wasting a lot of money. Since that day, I don’t think I have ever bought anything without first visiting IMBB. I have visited it every day ever since and it is actually my most visited tab. Eventually, I started writing for IMBB and became a member of this ever extending family and all the credit goes to the entire IMBB team – Rati, Sanjeev Sir ,Neha and Jomol. The love and the warmth that you get here I bet you won’t find it anywhere else. So, when Rati and Sanjeev Sir came up with this totally brilliant, fantabulous and out of the box idea of sponsoring products for their writers, I just couldn’t believe it. I don’t think I have ever been so excited about anything as much as I was when I saw the list and I would specially like to thank Jomol because she put so much of effort during the bidding time. Hats off! *jai ho*
When I first saw the Micheal Kors EDP in the list, I was on cloud nine. This has been my dream perfume ever since I smelled it on one of my friends, but I just couldn’t find it anywhere. Even when I ordered it this time from an online site, I got a wrong variant, but IMBB team was so patient and understanding that they allowed me to get it from Michael Kors store in Dubai. Thanks Again! So, let’s get on with the review.
Approximately 8500 INR for 100 ml.
From designer Michael Kors, a chic, luxurious, sexy fragrance for women. Creamy florals explode into exotic spices, tamed by Moroccan incense. A fragrant creation with a wealth of personality that will capture the heart of every woman.
Notes: Dewy Freesia, Tamarind, Chinese Osmanthus, Incense, Fresh Tuberose, White Wings Peony, Blue Orris, Arum Lilies, Cashmere Woods, Musk, Vetiver Haiti.
Style: Sophisticated and sensual, warm and wearable.
The 3.4-ounce eau de parfum spray is in a glass bottle with a faceted “M.” Platinum-finished metal spray cap. Presented in an innovative, luxurious box with a camel “suede” inner box and shining platinum outer box.
When I received the perfume, I was absolutely stunned by the packaging of the product. It comes in a metallic silver outer box and the perfume is carefully placed in a camel suede inner box which is absolutely a delight to feel. The glass bottle itself oozes with class and style and it is seriously one of the best-looking perfume bottles I have ever seen. I mean simply kept on your vanity, you would have people asking you what perfume is that. The bottle is a clear glass bottle with Michael Kors written on it. The top of the bottle has a clear platinum finished metal which anyone would mistake for a mirror 😛 The cap is a beautiful M shaped design which really sets it apart from any perfume I have ever seen.
My Experience with Michael Kors Eau De Parfum:
I personally prefer fragrances which are soft, feminine yet classy and sophisticated and this perfume is just that. Too strong fragrances give me headaches and nausea. I haven’t really tried a full on fruity perfume as yet, I mostly stay on floral ones. Michael Kors EDP is essentially a floral fragrance with some very light musky base notes. This is the signature scent of Michael Kors.
I received it about two weeks back and since my first whiff of it, I knew this would be a never-ending relationship. According to me , the perfume opens up with a blast of fresh white florals, but they won’t give you a headache . Even if you are not a floral lover, you would still end up liking this perfume. Just imagine, if you were standing in a garden full of freshly blooming flowers, green shrubs and light breeze blowing through you – this is exactly what you would smell like.
The most prominent notes for me when I first spray it on are freesia and tuberose. I have a number of perfumes with these two notes, but the way these are combined in MK is gorgeous. In the opening, it smells like a floral aquatic scent may be because of the tamarind in there, but I am not sure about that.
After the initial 15-20 minutes of spraying it on, it tends to be more on the floral side and I can smell a lot of tuberose, peony and lilies. I have never smelled anything like a ChineseOsmanthus before, but I found out that it is a tea tree basically, so I am pretty sure that it’s the reason for the slight green undertone to the perfume which prevents it from getting an over the top floral throughout.
After about an hour , it becomes slightly powdery, but in a good way, which I actually like a lot. I smell some musk and woody notes in there, but they in no manner dominate the floral nature of the fragrance. The final dry down is of white florals and some woodiness soaking in.
This perfume is something that can become a signature scent for a lot of women. It is not something which will suit a certain age group and anyone can carry this off with ease. It is something you would like to smell on a date , on a wedding or any day which is special to you big or small. It is apt for office wear too but only if you don’t go too overboard with it. It is not one of those scents that fill an entire room when you enter but more of a private and personal scent that people around cannot skip noticing.
Who Might not like it:
Anyone who likes very strong perfumes that catch instant attention should skip this. Micheal Kors EDP is more of a mild fragrance which takes time to weave that magic on the people around you and the biggest con is that anyone who expects a long-wearing perfume for a whole day or 10-12 hours should skip this. I was personally disheartened a bit too by this. Since it is an EDP, I expected a longer staying power but on me, it lasts for about 5-7 hours after which it doesn’t fade but becomes less prominent and I have to reapply. I bought an atomizer just for this and I don’t really mind re-spraying it on for the kind of fragrance it is.
The bottle is a beauty but since it is all glass, very delicate and bulky, be sure not to drop it or might be a loss of 8500 INR. Carry an atomizer since it is not travel friendly.
Pros of Michael Kors Eau De Parfum:
- Beautiful fresh floral scent.
- Feminine, classy and very sophisticated.
- On the milder side, so won’t cause headache.
- Sillage is good.
- Suitable for all age groups.
- Gorgeous packaging.
- Only a couple of spritz are needed.
Cons of Michael Kors Eau De Parfum:
- Very expensive.
- Staying power is good, but not very long lasting.
- Packaging is not travel friendly, its delicate and one has to be careful with it.
Do I Recommend Michael Kors Eau De Parfum?
Yes, if you love fresh florals and fragrances which are not over the top, headache inducing and take time to develop, then you must try this, but also since it is such an expensive perfume, it is definitely better to try a tester first and the availability is an issue too.
For the fragrance, it is 5/5 for me, but just for the staying power I would have to give it 4/5!
Also, this is the only perfume for which MK has a 100 ml bottle.
Do keep in mind that each perfume develops differently on every person and I hope it comes out just as beautifully on you as it came out for me.
And Thank you again IMBB for giving me my dream perfume.
Have a great day everyone!
