When the colder days roll around, I habitually gravitate toward warmer scents. Sexy Amber by Michael Kors is just a few years old but it definitely makes the cut. In 2013; inspired by the runway, Michael Kors released a collection of fragrance and cosmetics. The collection follows 3 directions; Glam Jasmine, Sporty Citrus and Sexy Amber; each with their own unique distinctiveness.
At first, I must admit, the name made me think of an exotic dancer. I thought it was quite an unimaginative name for a fragrance, but I know better than to judge a fragrance by its name. Or its bottle for that matter; although I have been known to buy perfumes just for their gorgeous bottles and packaging.
Sexy Amber is housed in a chic, tall gold flacon. The bottle, for me, is reminiscent of a skyscraper and is quite modern and minimal. The bright, amber coloured liquid is visible through the clear glass and the bottle is subtly branded with gold text. The dazzling gold lid is a lovely, inspired little touch. It is engraved and looks exactly like the plates you see on the ever so popular Michael Kors handbags and purses.
The fragrance itself was crafted by Harry Fremont. It begins quite mellowed with warm, sumptuous amber at the top. Wistful white flowers are blended with the most delicate hints of citrus in the heart. The result is so unusual and pleasant. The base brings the fragrance together by blanketing the amber and white flower notes in delicious musks, patchouli and comforting sandalwood.
Despite the strong and varying notes, the scent ends up being quite clean. It is warm, alluring and truly allows the amber notes to shine through. Sexy Amber is sexy, yes, but it is also smooth, creamy and sophisticated.
Sexy Amber is an Eau de Parfum and the wear is really good. It lasts at least 8 hours on the skin and when it does begin to fade it leaves a really pleasant powdery trace. The effect is quite comforting and elegant.
I’m going to be wearing this chic, sensual fragrance throughout Winter. I remember noticing it on Jill from Zebra Square and I had to know what it was because I had to have it!
You can find Sexy Amber by Michael Kors at selected fragrance retailers in 50mL and 100mL variants.
