Unless you're new to Lovely Girlie Bits, you'll know that I love all things coral. Like all the things. We're talking handbags, wallets, polishes, lipsticks, blushes and nail polishes. It's my signature colour and people send me photos of coral things all the time! So when I heard that Michael Kors was bringing out a new fragrance called Coral, I went in to ultimate panic mode... What if I didn't like it? What if it was a big disappointment, only to be used as a prop for photos?
I needn't have worried because I am a woman obsessed and it's not just because it's called Coral. Ok, maybe I'm a good 32% obsessed because of the name, the rest is obsession based on the scent. And after using it for the last two weeks, I know that I'll have this done and dusted by the end of the summer, Rationing may have to occur, or maybe I'll just go for broke and enjoy every single drop!
I've already decided I want to bring it away on my holidays because it's got a really bright citrusy fruity floral quality that when I spray it on myself and close my eyes really hard, I'm transported to somewhere, anywhere, with sun, sea, sand and sangria. So if you ever see me out and about having a special moment with my scarf (which I drown with my scent of the day so I can inhale it for hours), this is why. I'm on virtual holidays for that brief moment and I'll be with you in a second.
With top notes of lemon, pink grapefruit, mandarin, blackcurrant and pink pepper, this is what knocks me upside the head and gives me actual visions of blue skies and sea. Raspberry and tuberose along with my favourite notes of jasmine and orange blossom. I'm telling you, I can smell an orange blossom a mile away and am eternally a fan of white florals which adds brightness and femininity to the scent. The base notes of ambrox, cedarwood, sandalwood and musk add depth and creaminess to the fragrance and there's something really comforting about it.
Coral is a scent that puts me in good form by just looking at the bottle, even better form when I spray it on me (drown myself in it) and keeps me uplifted and hopeful that spring and summer is coming!
It's going to be available nationwide from March 30th and prices are €55/30ml, €79/50ml and €109/100ml, so each size is within the hand luggage regulation if you want to bring your summer scent away with you.
Go and smell it when it arrives on counters and tell me where it transports you to!
