The latest from Michael Kors Beauty, is an eau de parfum called Island Capri. The fragrance is made with notes of orange bigarade, bergamot, rose, violet de Parma, dark fig, olive tree accord, jasmine, green basil, cypress, and white moss. It's a soft scent that at first spray is clearly very feminine and sensual.
The inspiration was the Italian island of Capri. I was there about ten years ago and was awed by the beauty and glamour of this isle of the rich and famous. On Capri, champagne flows like water, every designer label is omnipresent and the homes are huge and perfectly manicured. When I say this is the destination of those with wealth, I'm talking about people who have so much money that it isn't even funny.
It's no wonder why Michael Kors fell in love with this "beauty utopia." The waters are home to famous grottos, there are cascading rocks and the jet-setters are fascinating to look at. Perhaps that's why he chose gorgeous, tan Carmen Kass to model in the ads.
The bottle was also created to reflect the Island. The blue glass is representative of the Mediterranean Sea while the shiny cap depicts relaxed beach luxury. Island Capri will be available on counters this month in a 1.7 ounce eau de parfum ($60), a 5 ounce body gelèe ($27.50) and a sparkling sheer fuchsia lip gloss ($12). Do you think this is something you would buy for yourself or as a holiday gift for someone special?
