Super Gorgeous is a good stayer – if you like longevity in your perfume, this works! I wore it all of yesterday and there was almost no fade by the evening. I could tell it had settled but it was still very much in olfactory evidence and on that vein, a little goes a long way. You don’t really need to spritz it all over.
I had a little olfactory flash back when I spritzed Michael Kors Super Gorgeous – it was of opening the Estee Lauder Blockbuster make up set that my parents bought me when I was about 14 or 15. There’s that kind of sweet, new lipstick nuance to this which is probably why I love it so much. In terms of notes, it’s jasmine, tuberose, ylang ylang and orange flower with a base of amber and tobacco. I’m trying to say there is a sharpness to the sweetness on first spritz but can’t find the right words to express that in another way – but once the tuberose and amber kick in it becomes smooth and creamy. If you don’t like sweet florals you won’t like it, but if you’ve been a fan of Estee Lauder fragrances in the past (before the disaster that was Modern Muse) I think this will take you right back into a place of happiness when fragrance wasn’t as complicated as it is now. Valentine’s Day is on the horizon and that’s often a trigger for a new scent – think of Michael Kors Super Gorgeous as the new friend you feel you’ve always known which seems a good fit for the occasion. The Perfume Shop has this exclusively at the moment HERE (£49, 30ml).
