Very Hollywood Michael Kors Sparkling

I just tried Michael Kors Very Hollywood Sparkling and I have to say the name fits perfectly. A fresh citrus scent, with a definite sparkle reminds me of  pink champagne.   Definitely a new staple of my fragrance colletion the sweet sparkly freshness of Very Hollywood Sparkling is perfect for everyday, feminine but not to overpowering.

P.S. I love the bottles, perfectly girly and pink!

With the fall season underway, I wanted to introduce you to Michael Kors’ newest fragrance, Very Hollywood Michael Kors Sparkling Eau de Toilette, having just launched October 1st. The fragrance is the latest addition to the original Very Hollywood Michael Kors fragrance collection with highlights of fresh sparkling citrus and fruity notes of mandarin, black currant and neroli, creating a bright, crisp scent for the younger generation. Here’s what Michael has to say about the new scent:

“My original Very Hollywood Michael Kors Eau de Parfum pays tribute to old Hollywood glamour. Inspired by iconic screen sirens, it’s indulgent, sexy and sophisticated. The new Eau de Toilette evokes the budding ingénue of young Hollywood as she takes her first steps onto the red carpet. It’s her moment to shine and sparkle in the spotlight.” – Michael Kors

Reusable, even washable, it produces gradual and controlled diffusion of the active ingredients, stimulating the skin surrounding the eye area to a younger and smoother appearance.

I’ve tried these eye patches, and I am absolutely in love. How does this work!? It seriously makes my eyes look so much better, after only half an hour! What I love – is you can reuse these! How great is that!? I’ve used the same pack for the last week! And I love the cute little case that comes with the kit. I keep it right next to my bed, and I use it when I watch TV right before bed!

Celebs have been buzzing about this new product. Recently Drew Barrymore was interviewed by PEOPLE Magazine, where she gushed about the product.

Editor – “How did your relationship with your looks change when you turned 30?”

Drew Barrymore – “For some reason, since I turned 30 this little crew comes in the middle of the night and they sew little sausages under my eyes! I found some great new eye patches that are so awesome. They’re by Talika. They just take away the puffiness. You put them on for 20 minutes and they’re genius.”

Introducing Calvin Klein Beauty

Calvin Klein beauty it marketed toward a more sophisticated and mature woman i.e. the 30 and up group. I am not sure I like being in the “mature” woman age group thought I had a few more years to hit that stage. Diane Kruger looks flawless in these ads maybe being “mature” isn’t so bad?

I love Calvin Klein Beauty it’s a very modern, clean and feminine scent. It starts with a great floral scent and the dry down leaves me with a creamy cedar note. A great addition to any fragrance collection.

The Calvin Klein Beauty Woman:

Authentic and true; she is accomplished and inspiring.

She believes in the power of self-knowledge, gained from the life she’s lived.

At once feminine and strong, she shapes her destiny with a charismatic allure and determined strength. Her true beauty, lies within.

The Fragrance:

Calvin Klein Beauty evokes the ultimate power of femininity and sophistication, while capturing the spirit of a woman who is beautiful from the inside out, with an aura that radiates.

A new interpretation of a lily – a neo-lily – is the heart and soul of Calvin Klein Beauty. A sophisticated flower that is the essence of femininity, the lily is also radiant and powerful.

Bringing the neo-lily to life, ambrette seeds enhance the spicy warmth, timeless jasmine elevates the floral signature, and a trail of cedarwood brings a vibrant and magnetic beauty to the drydown.

Top: Ambrette Seeds

Mid: Jasmine

Dry: Cedarwood

The Design:

The Calvin Klein Beauty bottle design features smooth feminine curves, set atop a luxurious glass base. A metallic silver ring encircles the glass, expressing a woman’s on going strength and confidence, while the golden liquid reflects her luminosity and inner-beauty. The metallic silver cap evokes the sculptural shapes fundamental to the Calvin Klein aesthetic.

The outer packaging is a sleek white, glossy carton featuring a vibrant silver halo, while the inner carton exudes a soft yellow glow revealing warmth, light and radiance. The carton incorporates shades of silver and white, signature Calvin Klein colors that are reminiscent of clean, spare shift dresses from the Calvin Klein Collection Runway Show.
