A Hollywood-Inspired Scent That Hits All The Right Notes

The original Michael Kors eau de parfum has been in my fragrance rotation for years, so it didn't take much arm-twisting to get me interested in the designer's latest scent, Very Hollywood.

Its pretty, pink, retro presentation hints at how much more girly Very Hollywood is than its iconic antecedent. However, it's no less sexy. Imagine it as how two women can be flirtatious in two very different ways: Michael Kors is sultry and mysterious, while Very Hollywood is bubbly and coy.

What really drove Very Hollywood home for me is the introduction of a limited-edition scented pen. The writer and romantic in me just had to get her hands-specifically, her right hand-on this piece of ballpoint perfection. Sadly, however, they weren't kidding when they said it would be limited-edition. Introduced only a month ago, it appears to be sold out already!

That doesn't mean I can't enjoy the sparkling blend of mandarin, bergamot and gorgeous gardenia in its other forms, like an eau de parfum, lotion and solid perfume cocktail ring. Each one unfailingly sets a red-carpet mood that follows you everywhere, even if you're on plain old pavement.
