Perfume Break - KENZOAMOURE Eau de Toilette Florale

A Bouquet of White Flowers from New KENZOAMOUR Eau de Toilette florale

In Asia, the poets say that the purest light is written in white flowers. KENZOAMOUR Eau de Toilette florale initiates a new journey of love into the light with a feminine bouquet of delicate white blossoms. Top notes of neroli, grapefruit-black currant and essence of cardamom unfold into a floral heart of frangipani blossom, gardenia and rosebud. White musk and cedar wood complete this fresh, floral fragrance. Lulled by these gentle flowers, this new eau de toilette is inspired by the journey of love.

The star Neroli, is a delicate white flower distinctive for its refreshing floral aroma with a hint of spice. Our Neroli blossoms are harvested by hand and after distillation are combined with a unique blend of white flowers to create an elegant, sophisticated floral bouquet.

KENZOAMOUR Eau de Toilette florale begins a new voyage through Asia, following the ever-shifting sunlight as it changes all that it touches. Ukrainian-born model Olga Kurylenko has been the face of KENZOAMOUR since 2007. She rose to international fame in 2008, co-starring in the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace as Camille Montes.

Bottle Design

Karim Rashid’s design, inspired by feminine sensuality and flourishing energy, has been bathed in sunlight and lightly brushed by a poetic white mist. On the box, a luminous reinvention of the bird takes to the air.

Fragrance Break - Kenzo Indian Holi

PowerPoint Presentation

After spending almost 2 months in India, I was instantly drawn to KenzoAmour EDP Indian Holi fragrance. This scent has been out for awhile, since Spring 2008, but I just had the chance to try it. I'm not sure if it's the actual musky floral scent of this perfume that reminds me of India, or just the fact that it's called Indian Holi and the color and design of the bottle screams 'India.'

A Little Background about Holi

Holi is the festival of colors celebrated all over Northern India heralds the end of the winterand the beginning of the spring,and marks the rekindling of the spirit of life. It is a festival of love and laughter when all is forgiven and it is a time to break free. People of young and old gather before the night of the full moon in the month of March and let loose mists of vibrant colorsas a testament to the joy of Spring. Kenzo traveled through India in March and was inspired by the exuberance of Holi to create its first limited edition of Kenzo Amour.

The Fragrance

A musky floral that evokes celebration Indian Holihas its head in the clouds, with rice steam, frankincenseand whispers of cherry blossom. It breaks into a heart of natural

rose essencebalanced by the freshness of pink pepper, and smoothed by

petals of peonyand frangipani.At the base, it lingers over a musky, sandalwood bed, gently spiced with vanilla.

The Bottle

Designed by KarimRashid, the original “bird in flight” bottle now bears splashes of red and pink celebrating the spirit of Indian Holi. Laced in gold is the heart-felt cry of “it’s Holi.”

Perfume Break - KENZO EAUX DE FLEURS Collection

KENZO returns to nature with a new collection of three subtle floral notes, EAUX DE FLEURS, featuring three flowers, picked from Japanese trees to evoke a delicate trail of scent. KENZO asked three perfumers to create a vision for each scent in the trio, resulting in three distinct, whimsical fragrances. With the EAUX DE FLEURS collection KENZO seeks to discover the evanescent quality of blossoming trees, a creative approach blending authenticity with poetry. Every year, KENZO will enrich its collection with a new flower picked from a Japanese tree.

EAU DE FLEUR de soie . silk

Nonchalant and audacious, the silk flower flutters gently in the breeze. Jean Jacques of Takasago has created EAU DE FLEUR de soie, a crimson floral note with a tender, fruity heart. In Japan the silk tree is known as nemunoki, the sleeping tree whose leaves close slowly at night and reopen in the morning, giving the illusion that the tree has slept through the night.

EAU DE FLEUR de magnolia

Perched on their branches, magnolia flowers flaunt their dignified and willowy allure. Francis Kurkdjian of Takasago has created EAU DE FLEUR de magnolia, a radiant floral bouquet, bursting with hesperidian notes to “…capture the fragile crystalline freshness of a magnolia blossom, like a ray of spring sun piercing winter clouds.”

EAU DE FLEUR de thé . tea

Sheltered under its leaves, the soft white petals of the tea flower conceal a heart of gold. Aurélien Guichard of Givaudan has created EAU DE FLEUR de thé, a floral concoction with notes of green tea and a hint of musk, reminiscent of fresh leaves melding with the gentle aroma of the tea flowers.

The Bottle

Tinted in light shades of rose, saffron and chartreuse, the bottles curve as if swaying in a gentle wind. A fragrance faithful to Kenzo’s inspirations, the bottles bear his signature.
