Michael Kors by Michael Kors Fragrance Review

Michael Kors by Michael Kors is Michael Kors’ signature fragrance. Honestly, can we say his name anymore? While our opening line should be taken in jest, there’s also a serious side to any designer who launches a signature fragrance.

Because, in the end, that fragrance is the only one that has the name as the main name. It represents the designer’s brand more than any other fragrance they have or will produce.

In our Michael Kors by Michael Kors review, we will dive into how it smells, samples, and how it came to be.

Michael Kors by Michael Kors Review – Getting Started

Michael Kors by Michael Kors review

Michael Kors by Michael Kors is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women. It was launched in 2004 and has experienced moderate success. Unfortunately, we are unable to find any information on the perfumer(s) responsible for the fragrance, potentially because it’s under Kors’ name. Maybe he created it, or he doesn’t appreciate his thunder stolen.

His signature fragrance is one of his better sellers, which is an expected result of any designer who launches a fragrance under their name.

But what does Michael Kors smell like? We’ll answer that to the best of our abilities.

What Does Michael Kors by Michael Kors Smell Like?

With freesia lining the top notes, you almost get a banana opening. And that’s a bit odd. The opening is quickly replaced by the middle notes consisting of lily, tuberose, peony, and orris root. The tuberose tends to dominate the second layer. The base notes feature musk, tahitian vetiver, and cashmere.

All in all, Michael Kors signature fragrance beholds a tropical island, vacation vibe. It can incite nostalgic getaway vibes for those of us with some life experiences. But it also emanates a bit of a summer day at the pool feel.

Now, to be clear, Michael Kors doesn’t smell like Coppertone sunblock, to be clear. It is a much more refined fragrance. It’s summery and vibrant.

It’s an overall pleasant smell that doesn’t take itself too seriously, which is a surprise given it’s the designer’s signature fragrance.

Commercials, Advertising Campaigns

Michael Kors signature fragrance endeavor features…wait for it… Michael Kors. Who would have guessed? Well, all of us. The commercial is shot more in documentary style with a backdrop featuring acoustic music. It’s clear that Kors wants this fragrance to separate itself in all fashions. Mission accomplished.

Final Notes

Michael Kors signature fragrance is a tropical island experience. Unfortunately, the major downside is its inferior longevity. It won’t last you that long; you’ll need to reapply. Otherwise, it’s fun, zesty, and hip.
