Review: Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer
There’s something magical about a Sydney sunset during spring by the harbour. The stars begin to twinkle and the golden sunset reflecting from the ocean. If you’re fortunate enough to have a drink in hand and the harbour bridge in view; you’re all set for a glamorous evening in the city. Taking inspiration from the elegance and mystery of the night sky, Michael Kors has released a new limited edition fragrance that will compliment your stylish feminine look this season.
Fragrance name: Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer
Notes: Quince, freesia, jasmine petals, vanilla bean, amber woods, blonde woods, moss, Peru balsam and musks
Described as: a rich, woody fragrance destined to illuminate your evening with an with an addictive blend of soft musk, jasmine petals, and sensual vanilla. The fragrance opens with the succulent Quince and highlighted with the fresh dew of Freesia and lush Jasmine Petals. The dry down intrigues with Moss and Peru Balsam touched by a hint of Musk.
Wear it: During the evening in spring or summer. This scent works well for a dressed up occasion such as sophisticated dinner or a night out on the town.
Price: Michael Kors Midnight Shimmer Eau de Parfum 50ml RRP $115. Available from City Perfume online and retail stores.

The verdict: If you enjoy a sweet and feminine fragrance Midnight Shimmer is for you. The scent is on the intense side and the vanilla bean note really shines. Midnight Shimmer reminds me of a youthful edition of Hypnotic Poison and similarly with both fragrances, a little bit goes a long way. While I’ve recommended this fragrance for spring and summer, I will add that I recommend something on the fresher side if it’s a hot night. The fragrance can also be worn during the day in autumn and winter because of the lovely warmth from the vanilla and musk accords. The fragrance's bottle is stunning and will definitely turn a few heads. The bottle itself is midnight blue and gold-toned, with iridescent gold glitter and a bold embossed metallic gold Michael Kors logo cap that perfectly complements the scent.
