Perfume of the Week - Very Hollywood by Michael Kors

As days get warmer, most of us reach for the lighter fragrances. Smooth florals, light fruity smells and younger scents are on our lists. Very Hollywood by Michael Kors is exactly the kind of perfume most people gravitate towards on this time of year. The notes are mandarin, iced bergamot, wet jasmine, ylang-ylang, raspberry, gardenia, orris (which I have no clue as to what it smells like), creamy amber, soft white moss and vetiver.

If a perfume has mandarin and raspberry, you can expect that “lemonade” or ice-cream scent that is very fresh and playful and if it has any kind of jasmine in it, you can expect me to like it (gardenia is also from the jasmine family, just in case you didn’t know).

With a name like Very Hollywood I was expecting something glamorous and grown up so to speak. This fragrance however is very casual and young. I think it is perfect for those of you who are younger or maybe just starting to get into the perfume world.

Michael Kors seems to have decided to add a bright and sparkly scent to his perfume line in order to appeal to a more vast audience, who might have more modern tastes. I think this does the trick but if you’re in the market for something more sensual, you might want to try something else.
