Michael Kors Wonderlust description
Michael Kors’ Wonderlust will indeed provoke feelings of wonder….and lust. To wear this fragrance is to imagine yourself bathed in creamy almond milk, your skin massaged with solar tuberose oil, your mouth teased with droplets of sweet, juicy fruit, and your whole body dusted generously in a rich, spicy carnation and rose cosmetic powder. Divine!
Wonderlust opens with those fluffy, sweet almond milk notes we associate so fondly with heliotrope and almond blossom, for an effect that is both tender and playful.
Joining with the spicy dianthus (a type of carnation), the florals feel spicy, and creamy in an almost gourmand manner. Imagine almond cookies dusted with confectioner’s sugar and clove, but with a slightly inedible floral character that stops you from licking your arm.
In the midst of all this almond-floral goodness, there is a touch of fruit that will set your mouth to watering – a tart, juicy bergamot with a lime leaf greenness, spiked with enough pink pepper to dilate your pupils. The creamy almond accords need this shot of spiky fruit and spice to keep things lively.
The tart spices, uplifting florals, and playful almonds bob buoyantly over a base of warm, dry woods. The woods here are a mélange of aromatic sandalwood and softly musky cashmere woods.
A touch of benzoin resin, which displays a range of facets from vanilla to cinnamon, to lemon sugar, and Communion wafers, lends the woods a noble sort of dusty, resinous sweetness. Scents with benzoin in them tend to be very rich and spicy, and Wonderlust is no exception.
Bright, silky, and thick with almond, Michael Kors Wonderlust is a twist on the fruity floral genre that feels grown-up and sophisticated. Try it on a date night and be prepared for your date to want to snuggle up!
Wonderlust is a yummy little flirt of a scent. It teases your senses with lush almond milk, clove-dusted cookies, tiny purple heliotrope, tart spice, and a woody-resinous finish as silky as a crème brulée.
