Looking back on my "Perfume Loving" history, Michael Kors Very Hollywood should be a scent that I pretty much hate but for some reason I find myself falling deeper and deeper in love with it.
Floral Perfumes have never really been my thing. I'm more of a "Sweet N Spicy" kind of girl.
I picked this up on my birthday after I received a Boots voucher from a friend It was already half price so I picked it up.
The Notes to this perfume are :
Top - Mandarin Orange, Bergamot and Raspberry
Middle - Orris Root, Gardenia, Ylang Ylang and Jasmine
Base - Amber, Oakmoss and Vetiver
When first applied I really notice the white floral notes; Jasmine and Gardenia as well as the freshness from the Mandarin Orange.
I think it's the freshness from the fruit and white flowers that allow me to love this perfume. The name fits it well as It's a very glamorous scent.
It's one I think would be great for special occasions like weddings and parties.
The lasting power of this perfume is a good three hours on my skin but a lot more when sprayed on clothing.
In fact what I love to do is spray it on the scatter cushions on my bed and my curtains because it makes my room smell gorgeous for days!
Packaging wise I think it's stunning, it looks very expensive and chic. Giving an antique vibe. The actual fragrance is a pink colour which just makes it even more pretty.
I love the way the glass is cut and how stamp-like the lid is.
The only thing I will warn you about if you're thinking of buying it without trying first, don't be fooled by the fruity top notes. This is very much a Floral perfume.
I can't find it on the Boot's website at the moment but I would go check in your local store to see if they still have it.
The Perfume Shop have the 30ml on offer at the moment for £16.99 - Here
You can also find it on Amazon and Ebay :-)
