In 1991 Kenzo released its iconic fragrance Kenzo Pour Homme, which captivated the world with its combination of aromatic and aquatic notes. In 2016, the fragrance celebrates its 25th Birthday with the release of Kenzo Homme Eau De Parfum, a more intense and contrasted edition, which will have you counting down the days until summer.
Fragrance: Kenzo Homme Eau De Parfum
Fragrance Notes: Citrus, mint, cardamom, sage, marine accords, spices, vetiver, cedar, sandalwood and vanilla.
Described as: a more intense version of Kenzo Pour Homme, the latest edition introduces additional facets to the iconic scent, making it more mysterious and sensual. Building on the original scents base of sandalwood and marine notes, aromatic and vibrant accords have been added to give the fragrance a more dynamic and masculine edge.
Wear it: Anytime in spring and summer or when travelling abroad to a tropical destination. I’ll be packing this fragrance on my Europe trip in a few weeks’ time. It’s the perfect scent to take you from day to night in a warm climate –it has summer written all over it.
Price: Kenzo Homme EDP 100ml $131. Available now from Myer and David Jones department stores.
The Verdict: Refreshing and long lasting. I’ve always been a fan of the original; however, I did find I would need to reapply throughout the day. Kenzo Pour Homme EDP lasts on the skin for hours and commands attention as soon as you enter a room (it lingers after you’ve left too). For the fragrance experts among us, you’ll know how difficult it is to find a fresh/marine fragrance that lasts on the skin and Kenzo has ticked all the boxes with this masculine and sporty scent. It’s a winner, can you tell?
