Fragrance Review: Very Hollywood Michael Kors

Very Hollywood is Michael Kors’ latest fragrance. The scent, the packaging, and the advertising campaign aim to capture the sights and sounds of one of the world’s most glamorous destinations.

Top notes: mandarin, bergamot
Middle notes: jasmine, ylang ylang, raspberry, gardenia
Base notes: Italian orris, amber, white moss, vetiver

Very Hollywood is essentially a fruity floral scent. The invigorating and richly citrusy mandarin and bergamot open the scent, and the juicy raspberry soon shines through. It is a fresh opening with a hint of sweetness.

However, one note that characterizes the whole scent is gardenia. As the fruitiness recedes, gardenia soon takes over. The gentle base (with no heavy woodiness) allows gardenia to linger on for a considerable amount of time until the end. If you like fragrances with gardenia as the core, Very Hollywood is definitely worth trying.

Overall this is a wearable scent that does have a glamorous feel. Its sparkling and vivacious flair makes it a nice going-out scent, which can be quite suitable for the upcoming party season. (It is certainly not for a calm and quiet occasion.)

Currently exclusive to Harrods and Brown Thomas in the UK, Very Hollywood Michael Kors will be available nationwide from October 14th. The lineup includes Eau de Parfum Spray (30ml, 50ml, and 100ml), Luxe Perfume Spray (30ml), Fabulotion and Gem Solid Perfume Ring. (Luxe Perfume Spray and Gem Solid Perfume Ring are exclusive to Harrods and Brown Thomas.)
