Fragrance: Kate Spade 'Live Colorfully' perfume review

Kate Spade Live Colorfully

She lights up every room she enters. Layered with a complex spectrum of bright florals, citrus and musk, the subtle notes of live colorfully playfully shift throughout the day to delight, surprise and serve as a sophisticated (and slightly mischievous) reminder to constantly step into the world of color around of you. The key note of gardenia is at the heart of this uplifting fragrance, but it’s the unexpected mix of classic olfactive ingredients (vanilla, musk) with few more exotic touches (coconut water, tiare flower) that lend live colorfully its complexity and depth to last all day long. Bottled in a rainbow-hued prism that’s capped with a shiny lucite stopper (fashioned after our signature detail, a well placed bow) the sparkling, modern floral fragrance embodies kate spade new york’s penchant for bringing a hint of whimsy to the everyday.


Top Notes: Mandarin, Pink water lily, Star Anise

Heart Notes: Tiare Flower, Golden Gardenia, Coconut Water

Base Notes: Sheer Amber, Musk, Tahitian Vanilla

My Thoughts

Live Colorfully is exactly what you would expect it to be; a fun, fruity-floral with a heavy dose of luxe. It’s intrinsically Kate Spade, from the pink-neon-iridescent bottle to the bow on the top, to the sparkling, sunny perfume within! It opens with a fruity, citrus hit of sunshine mandarin and exotic star anise, before it melts into a garden of pretty florals and delicious coconut, vanilla, sweet amber and musk. This perfume reminds me of New York, Gossip Girl style megababes hanging out eating frozen yogurt wearing super-cute clothing, summering in East Hampton and visiting friends in LA and Palm Springs and sipping on raspberry mojitos. It’s total Summer vibes; friendly, fabulous and carefree! It’s fun and full of life, which is why it’s a Summer perfume I can’t wait to wear! Fans of Kate Spade will love this and ladies who a fresh fruity floral perfume will love it too!
