The modern way to wear seductive scents

“Opulence used to mean ‘special occasion,’” says Michael Kors, whose latest trio of fragrances, the Gold Collection, is an ode to everyday luxury. “That has totally changed—the rules are gone.”

“It used to be if you had a sexy, lush fragrance, you’d say ‘Oh, I’m wearing it on Friday night; I have a date,’” says Kors. “Now, why wouldn’t you want to be glamorous even if you’re going to the gym? We mix it up today. That’s what keeps it modern.”
