My Experience with this perfume:
After coming across Coral (2015), I kind of realized that Michael Kors not only crafts amazing handbags but also amazing fragrances. I hope Midnight Shimmer comes out to be an amazing launch.
The fragrance opens in juicy sparkle of Quince. This is perfectly highlighted by the fresh dew of Freesia and the lush bloom of Jasmine Petals. It is an incredibly enticing opening! The opening is sweet and fresh. The Freesia Notes along with the Jasmine Notes add an amazing floral touch. This is followed by the woody heart notes.
The vanilla note is perfectly sensual. Amber woods and Blonde woods smell amazingly of the woods. At this point, this fragrance builds up into a fresh sweet woody scent which is extremely nostalgic. It hits something at the back of my brain and the nostalgia brings back some memories. Yet it continues to be equally sensual in nature. With the heart notes playing their symphony, the perfume dries down into an aquatic touch of moss and peru balsam with the warmth of musk.
Midnight Shimmer is a fabulous Fall/Winter Scent. As the name itself suggests, it is definitely formulated to be worn at evening/ night. Though you can wear it everyday as well, I recommend wearing it only for the special occasions. It doesn’t really have the young girl party spirit touch so I would recommend this to the 25+ age group.
The Silage is poor. The initial projection is up to an arm’s length and it gradually decreases to a scent which lingers on to the skin after it has partially dried.
The bottle is a stellar piece! The ombre glittery gold finish on the black glass is a stunning reflection of the elegant party essence of Midnight Shimmer. The cap has a metallic golden finish.
Below is a quick summary of likes and dislikes that I’ve felt about this fragrance:
1.This is an amazing Evening scent. It is nor heavy nor too feeble but just the right amount intense.
2.It is sexy, sensual and classy. It deliveries exactly what a mature woman would love to wear.
1.Silage is poor. I would have loved it had the silage been at least moderate.
Again an amazing launch by Michael Kors, Midnight Shimmer has everything to it. It is sexy, chic , sensual and classy. The only front where I am let down is the Longevity. If I am wearing it at a night party, I do want it to have a moderate stay. Well ,if the longevity does not bother you much, Midnight Shimmer can be your next favorite night scent!
