“The poppy blossoms and spreads everywhere across the city. With a single crackle, it pops out of the asphalt. Untameable, mischievous, it defies us and invades us. It creates an endless pattern, like a hymn to happiness”
It’s a happy therapy, a happy poppy invasion with the new fragrances from Kenzo! Indeed, this is an invasion that puts you in a very good mood on first glace. Such a fun, cheerful and passionate floral explosion, isn’t it?
Kenzo is launching 2 new fragrances – FLOWERBYKENZO Eau Florale and Flower in the Air Eau Florale, some fresh and optimistic fragrances, just what I need to drive those blues away!
The FLOWERBYKENZO Eau Florale is a refreshing fruity scent, uncomplicated and sweet by nature. Sparkling, radiant notes of grapefruit clothe a lavish floral heart consisting of White Peony, Bulgarian Rose and Freesia. This is a true olfactory tribute to the vitality and renewal of Spring. Ah~ The smell of sweet Spring and its flowers simply captivate.
Contained in a clear, sleek and tall flacon embellished with red, vibrant poppies, FLOWERBYKENZO Eau Florale seeks to bring out the simplicity amidst its playfulness.
As described, you’ll be greeted with a sparkling, tantalising vibrancy of grapefruit, followed by an immediate invasion of the florals – peony petals, rosebuds and freesia, which gives a delicate floral touch. Imagine a young lady in love, donning a bright red cocktail dress sashaying in a garden of roses. This scent is what a lady like that would wear.
After about an hour or so, expect a rush of vanilla and white musk infusion, giving a touch of seductive femininity. This light fragrance refreshes your senses but brings you a feeling of warmth that you can’t exactly describe. The fragrance lasted approximately 4-6 hours on me and by the end of the day, a faint vanilla scent can be detected if you place your noses close enough.
On the contrary, Flower in the Air Eau Florale is an optimistic freshness that will transcend your soul and lift your spirits. Between the two, I much prefer this for it doesn’t invade. It quietly sits in the seams of your clothing and lingers on your skin for what seemed like 5-6 hours? It makes me feel happy wearing this jovial, cheerful fragrance.
The flacon, like its counterpart, has got red poppies illustrated all over its donut-shaped cap. The main glass bottle is a round flat clear cylinder with its name printed. A pretty cute perfume bottle, isn’t it?
The scent opens up brightly with much zest, exuding the fresh energy of passion fruit. In the heart, dazzling rose unites with the gracefulness of pear blossom and jasmine petals – harmoniously bringing together a perfect balance of floral and fruity.
By the first hour, Solar Accord takes precedence. It’s hard to describe the smell of Solar notes but in my best words, it’s like a floral-warm scent which has a hint of Ylang Ylang I believe. It gives you the feeling of kinship, warmness and comfort. I really enjoy putting this scent on my worst days because smelling it uplifts my mood a lot more than I imagined. Every time the nose detects the scent, I say in my head, ” Yes, it’s Flower in the Air by Kenzo”. Much love for this one 🙂
