“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.” A woman might wear white gold if she wakes up “feel­ing pow­er­ful,” says the de­signer, rose gold if she’s in a ro­man­tic mood or yel­low gold when she feels like Naomi Camp­bell (that is, “com­pletely glam­orous”). She’ll pick her fra­grances the same way: based on de­sire and not des­ti­na­tion. “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.” From left: Michael Kors 24K Bril­liant Gold, Rose Ra­di­ant Gold and White Lu­mi­nous Gold eau de par­fum sprays ($107 each for 100 mL).
