You may best know the Michael Kors brand as a popular handbag line (and perhaps watched the man himself on Project Runway?) but in my opinion, along with brightly coloured leather goods, there is one thing Michael Kors does exceedingly well - fragrance. The latest instalment, Michael Kors Coral Eau de Parfum is bright, fruity, sophisticate and frankly a little slice of tropical sunshine in a bottle.
As you can see the bottle that houses the sweet nectar that is Michael Kors Coral Eau de Parfum, is truly beautiful: a bright and altogether chunky coral tinge bottle with accents of gold - if this doesn't scream summer, I don't know what does. I will quickly add that this is a fairly hefty bottle in terms of weight, as such you may want to decant a little into an atomiser bottle for travel and perhaps everyday on-the-go usage.
Fresh, sweet and ultra-feminine is the best way to describe Michael Kors Coral Eau de Parfum; this gentle yet long-wearing fragrance contains warm and altogether sunny notes of bright raspberry, sweet grapefruit, zesty lemon, coupled with creamy sandalwood and Tuberose and Jasmine notes - all the best parts of a warm summer, bottled and ready to wear. This isn't your typical sun-tan lotion tinged fragrance - there is no coconut nor overly tart fruit notes, rather Michael Kors Coral Eau de Parfum reminds me of warm climates when the sun is setting. Think tropical flowers blooming, a cool breeze, the warmth of the evening sun and long walks surrounded by lush greenery and you won't go far wrong. If you don't do sickly sweet or overly fruity fragrances and want a warm, bright floral for the Summer months this is the scent you have been waiting for.
