Michael Kors White Eau de Parfum

The only item I have ever owned by Michael Kors is some sunglasses which I got from TK Maxx for an absolute bargain.  It used to be all the rage to own rose gold watch and handbag but now, having seen more of the beauty range, there are quite a few products I fancy trying.

At Debenhams, my favourite store on Oxford Street, the Michael Kors beauty range consists of quite a few different Michael Kors fragrances, body products and there are some amazing sunglasses. I was kindly sent the Michael Kors White Eau de Parfum, which is available in three different sizes 30ml, 50ml and 100ml and naturally the price differs for each size and costs between £39 and £79. Michael Kors White is one of the newer fragrances from the collection and it is my very first fragrance from the brand and I absolutely love it.  For me this scent is one of those timeless classics and something to be worn on special occasions.


Firstly the bottle, as you would expect with something called White, it most certainly is.  It is huge, chunky and every bit luxurious.  The white bottle featuring the brand and name stands out among its peers with the silver mirrored top and button for spritzing.  It is like no other bottle I own and I like this a lot because it is plain, not too over dramatic and does what it needs too.

As the name suggests, this perfume is based upon white flowers.  It has

  • Top Notes – Violet leaves, Freesia, Ylang Ylang and Aldehyde
  • Heart Notes – Gardenia, Egyptian Jasmine, Tuberose and White peony
  • Base Notes – White Musk, Tonka bean, Vanilla, Amber and Cedarwood

With notes such as these you have to expect a strong fragrance and that is exactly what you get.  One spritz is all you need because once it is on your skin it isn't going anywhere.  White is one of the most long lasting perfumes I have ever owned and it is one I absolutely love, think works well and smells amazing on my skin.  You can literally smell the scent all day long and even if you are out in the evening after work there is no need to re-apply and living in London and getting public transport that is no mean feat.  The scent is so fresh when first spritzed with the Freesia being quite dominant but as it settles and you can detected Gardenia, which is a really lovely scent, this perfume becomes for me all about the tuberose (which is a flower) which is a lovely floral, sweet buttery scent. 

If you like white floral scents, you’ll love this offering from Michael Kors because White is just stunning.

Have you ever tried a Michael Kors perfume?

  1. I'm pretty fussy when it comes to perfumes, I'll have to try this one out at a department store (or duty free!) as it sounds like I might actually like this one! x

  2. I think I'm more into the Michael Kors beauty range than the handbags and watches etc. I used to have a watch but I lost it after just 3 weeks and it was too upsetting to get another!

  4. I'm another one who is really fussy about perfume, but this sounds lovely. It includes lots of the fragrances I like so I would hope they blend well. I will be looking for this in Duty-Free when I go on holiday next month.

  10. Oh, I didn't know Michael Kors did perfumes, It sounds lovely though, and the bottle is very "intagram worthy" I am very tempted to see if I can find this somewhere to see if it smells as nice as you have described
