Rose Radiant Gold description
Michael Kors Rose Radiant Gold is a knock-out fragrance for a knock-out kind of gal. Think the satiny, vintage sheen on real rose gold, and that’s the tone this perfume is going for – full-bodied, buttery flowers wrapped up in a sparkling musk and a hint of pink pepper. There is a rich, glowing aura to this scent that makes us think of glamorous starlets in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Perfect for hot, sultry summer nights.
The notes list leaves it up to your imagination as to what type of flowers are included in the scent but this is what we smell: a wave of buttery, fruity tuberose at first, but then mostly folds upon folds of soft white jasmine. The jasmine has that purple, syrupy sweetness that makes us think of warm summer nights and vines draped on pergolas. The floral notes here are thick, warm, and utterly gorgeous.
And even better – if you’re a gardenia fan, then you’ll definitely want to sample this, for after the initial wave of rich, syrupy tuberose and jasmine, there follows a long and nuanced drydown full of gardenia, with its uniquely salted butter facets, like the richest cheesecake known to man, made exclusively with tropical flowers.
Rose Radiant Gold is true to its name in all but one aspect – the rose. Although there is a spicy, rosy musk enveloping the buttery white floral heart, rose is not the strongest or more noticeable flower in the blend. But its presence is felt, especially when joined by that bright pink pepper and the warm, fluffy musk that takes the floral notes and disperses them through the air.
There’s no beating around the bush here – Rose Radiant Gold is a heady, glamorous white floral with just enough spice and musk to tease and tantalize. Its rich, warm fullness and shimmering radiance means that you will most definitely get noticed while wearing it. Pure feminity encapsulated!
