Fall Fragrances at Nordstrom: Kate Spade Live Colorfully Eau de Parfum Spray

Layered with bright florals, citrus and musk for a dazzling lift of life, the fragrance plays upon the skin the way light plays upon the bottle. It dances and shifts in olfactory notes that vary throughout the day. Inspiring the wearer, it interacts with the world as a slightly mischievous yet eternally chic reminder to live every moment in color. Features bold top notes of sparkling mandarin, pink water lily and star anise; a playful heart of tiare flower, golden gardenia and coconut water; and a sophisticated base of sheer amber, radiant musks and Tahitian vanilla.

I got a sampler of the new Kate Spade fragrance Live Colorfully Eau de Parfum Spray while shopping at Nordstrom.  The only other Kate Spade fragrance I have tried out is Twirl, and this is nothing like that.  The official fragrance notes for this perfume include mandarin, tiare flower, gardenia, amber, musk, and vanilla, and the description promises a light, playful, floral scent.  The bottle is a hefty bulky square/cube with a bow-shaped gold stopper.

I have never been too fond of gardenia or jasmine-based scents, and the more I try from this family, the more convinced I am about this.  Kate Spade's Live Colorfully Eau de Parfum just reinforces my belief.  The fragrance opens as a heavy floral with heady notes of gardenia and tiare flower - smells overwhelmingly like jasmine to me.  I can barely detect any citrusy/spicy notes.  The amber-musky notes do make an appearance as the perfume dries down, but the vanilla not so much.  The fragrance is strong, and the teeniest spritz stays on the whole day on my skin.  This perfume is definitely not on my list of must-buys, but with my dislike for the gardenia I am quite a bit biased in saying that.  If you do like strong florals and/or love jasmine and gardenia based scents, Kate Spade Live Colorfully just might be your favorite perfume for the cooler fall and winter months.  Similar perfumes - among what I have tried - would be Michael Kors Gold and Jennifer Aniston.
