Sexy Amber description
Want a warm, but not syrupy, sweet amber fall fragrance? Michael Kors Sexy Amber will have you dreaming of open fireplaces, cashmere shawls, tall leather boots, and kicking over piles of leaves on the street.
Unlike some ambers that clobber you over the head with jugs of syrup and heavy, smoky resins, Sexy Amber keeps things light by mixing in a generous dose of white, clean florals for an effect that is closer to cosmetic powder than honey. The notes don’t list what florals exactly are in the formula, but we’d guess that there’s at least some iris, rose, and jasmine creating a classic cosmetic vibe in the heart.
Adding to the smoothly powdered texture is a blond sandalwood that lends the scent a dry, woody finish rather than an oriental one. Toasty and aromatic rather than creamy, the woody accent reigns in the opulence of the golden amber. This makes Sexy Amber incredibly easy to wear, even on days when you think an amber might be too much.
We also pick up on a subtle hint of dry spice here also, perhaps a touch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or clove to keep the scent brisk and full of kinetic energy.
The contrast is key here between the sharp, peppery, almost powdered woods and the warm, creamy amber and florals. The scent gives you a sense of comfort and luxury, but it is also lively enough to keep your energy levels up while you dash around town. And although there’s a low-key, sexy warmth to the spiced amber, it is still subtle enough for the office or close company.
Sexy Amber is a warm, spicy woody amber with a touch of cosmetic powder and florals for that silky, inviting effect. No more, no less. And on days when you need a scent to gather you in a protective cocoon of ambery warmth without invading the airspace of passers-by or co-workers, then Sexy Amber is your secret weapon.
