My review on Michael by Michael Kors.
How I fell in love with this fragrance!!
My sister got a gift certificate to Sephora and with much deliberation, she settled on this fragrance. Everytime she comes to visit, I found myself just drinking the fragrance in. It was really driving me crazy, but since I have about 16 fragrances on my dresser, I really held back as long as I could before making a purchase. A few weeks ago, while visiting my sister, I noticed her 1.7 oz bottle was running pretty low. I told her I would find her a bigger size bottle and a better price. ( I also told her, I would be getting one, too!!) I made it my mission. I had searched websites and comparsion shopped, read review after review on some online stores. Finally I found a website, with great prices. I signed up to receive coupons. lo and behold, Memorial day weekend came, and code showed up in my inbox for 15% off my order. That was the incentive I needed to make my purchase.
Description of bottle
Both the 1.7 oz and the 3.4 oz Eau de Parfume spray come in a faceted glass bottle with the signature "M". The spray cap in in a platinum finished metal. The 3.4 oz spray is is around 4 & half inches high and almost 3 inches wide. The color of the fragrance of is a very light golden brown color.

My impression on this fragrance
The tuberose definetly is the star of this fragrance. Since I love the smell of tuberose, it must have been that, that really attracted me to it. It is exotic and highly intoxicating. A little goes a long way, so I really try not to apply to much. It tends to last on me even with a light spray. It is quite a long lasting fragrance. If apply in the morning, it is still going strong a few hours later. I still can smell it the next morning.
Also, I find either people love it or hate it. I would say it a medium weight fragrance and good to use in all seasons. Some have said it is a little heavy for the summer. Some suggest it for fall/winter use. Everyone one is different, so if you are interested, I suggest always trying a sample, to see if you like and how it reacts with your body chemistry
The prices vary. I have seen this fragrance selling for around $50.00 to $90.00. Which are very big differences. So I suggest shopping around. To save money, I also suggest trying a tester. In this particular case, there is no need to worry about it coming without a cap, since the cap is built in. Testers are cheaper because they come in plain cardboard boxes, and cost less for the manufacturer. Since, the boxes are thrown away anyhow, I was only too happy to pay a little less.
