Michael Kors Very Hollywood Signature Scented Ink Pen

If music be the food of love, then letters are the.. er, I don’t know, ‘signs of love?’. Hard proof that love existed in some form at some time? A nice way to show off your calligraphy skills? Hmm. I do love that Michael Kors have created a pen with SCENTED INK in time for Valentine’s Day.

It’s a pretty way to write those love poems, and I love that every brushstroke gives you a nice whiff of the perfume.

£20 from the 1st Feb. Continue reading

Island Michael Kors Palm Beach brings summer to January

It may be wet and wintry outside, so I’m extra glad of this fresh new scent from Michael Kors. I’m a big fan of his seasonal Island range and this one promises to be equally exciting, with its blend of glamour and heady fruitiness. The perfume is a mix of pink grapefruit, tangerine and sweet orange- not unusual for a Kors scent, as he notoriously likes the softer notes. An addition of jasmine and rum give it a seductive edge whilst a warm coat of vanilla keeps it eminently sweet. I like the choice of green for the bottle as well, as it’s a colour I hope to see more of this season.

It will be £42 for 50ml, out later this month. Continue reading
