It might be one of the five senses, but the power of smell is often underestimated. The olfactory bulbs located at the back of one’s nose sends messages directly to the most primal part of the brain which triggers emotions. Little wonder why fragrance has such an extraordinary influence; so powerful is its effect on olfaction that it can conjure up vivid images of faraway lands. A single whiff can whisk one away on an adventure — referencing this is the Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau Fresh. A new iteration of the original Michael Kors Wonderlust fragrance, the eau de toilette is deliciously vivacious and vibrant.

But don’t just take it from us. Michael Kors himself says that the scent “embodies the passion for adventure and exploration, the desire to take a chance and know that anything is possible.”
Marking the start of a new adventure, the perfume opens with a refreshing blend of citrus of Italian bergamot and pink grapefruit, and the crisp, green aroma of Granny Smith apples. At its heart is a delightfully floral combination of sharp and green jasmine sambac, soft white peony and the fresh and sophisticated muguet, commonly known as Lily of the Valley. As the scent settles, pamplewood deepens the citrus notes, while sheer musk and Sri Lankan sandalwood grounds with a warm, woody finish.
Bottled in frosted peach, it’s reminiscent of seaglass and balmy nights on a remote beach. The cap is finished in a sophisticated and solid, shiny gold to represent courage and confidence: Twin tenets needed when conquering new adventures.
