Big, fat tuberose
You have to REALLY love the smell of tuberose in order to admire "Michael" - which - in my opinion - is the most artificial tuberose I ever tried. It is extremely cloying and loud and has nothing more to offer than massive, enormous, big, fat tuberose.
Now, I am not a huge fan of tuberose, so I might be a little biased here, but "Michael" was one of the rare fragrances I had to get rid of as fast as possible after obtaining it in a swap... my entire family found it revolting. Even the notorious "Truth or Dare" by Madonna seems like a shy attempt at the tuberose-genre when compared with "Michael". For a better tuberose, I'd turn to Fracas by Piguet.

Viva Glamour!!!
This frag is truly stunning!! It's glamorous in such a modern 'red carpet' way, and yet gives one the 'come hither' feel of silent movie stars :o). Classic and modern all in one bottle ... a work of olfactory art really. I love tuberose and this has it in spades, but the blend of freesia and hint of incense is inspired. The cashmere wood underpins the creamy white flowers admirably ... Michael Kors, however, is definitely an essay on that Queen of all flowers. Getting this note to behave is not easy (I'm not sure if this is the frag designed at Givenchy or not ... seems to be a bit of confusion), but whoever the nose was pulled it off magnifi-scently! I feel, personally, that this is not a fragrance to be worn shyly. It's for those who don't mind being noticed ... who like to stand away from the crowd. One spritz 'aint gonna do it :o) ... abuse the nozzle and it will guarantee you all the attention you deserve!!

Michael
The cloying factor is 100% in this
so just in case your going to buy it
wear it sparingly because iy's heavy.
the opening starts with a blast of synthtic if not plastic scent of coconut
and pineapple in a couple of minutes
freesia and peony makes it's presence
known and the only drydown i can detect
is musk.

and i thought to myself is this going to be a run of the mill kind of fragrances i thought so when i received
this from a swap but i realized that
this is one of a kind perfume.

and i also love the flacon of this
clean modern and elegant.
the only con is the siliage is to heavy
so spray only once.

Rich white floral
If you're a big fan of freesia or tuberose, (or the both combined), and love strong, heady florals, then you can't go past Michael.

Michael is all flowers. Rather strong and overbearing bouquets of the stuff, but surprisingly a scent better suited for wear in the warmer months.

This fragrance has a slight shampoo-type scent, particularly in the drydown, which does give this fragrance a fresh and clean like quality which you'll either love or hate.

Michael is definitely a sillage monster. The scent will linger in a room hours after you've left. The lasting power is also pretty powerful, so less is more when it comes to applying this perfume.

From my perspective, a floral-loving one, Michael is a little too strong and nauseating for my tastes. From a distance this fragrance smells divine, however the closer you get the more it repels. If the scent had been made lighter, I'd most likely be giving Michael the thumbs up, but for now Michael is getting the thumbs down from me.

nice woody floral
I do not detect a lot of Musk in this, beginning to end it is a lovely fragrance and a big white woody floral that older people tend to like

OTT tuberose and I LOVE it! Screechy, almost obnoxious and a twist of woods on dry down. Ivanka Trump in perfume form.
