Kenzo Flower La Cologne Cologne
Advantages: Semlls fresh and long lasting
Disadvantages: Expensive as full price
I was first drawn to this perfume by the bottle; it is clear glass, with long poppies on the outside and a vibrant red pull-off metallic lid. The bottle comes presented in an off white cardboard box, also with the poppy design on and the usual details of the product and the maker's name. You can currently purchase 90ml of the perfume for £31.94 on Amazon (March 2013) which is a bargain, as this size bottle usually retails for around £50. The design of the bottle, does not indicate that the perfume will smell of poppies, instead this is just the design for all the Kenzo Flower range, which includes eau de toilette, shower gels and body lotions, amongst other things.
The bottle looks attractive and is easy to hold, as it is tall. The pull off lid is easy to remove and replace, it does not leak and the push dispenser sprays evenly, I use two to three sprays, and find that to be adequate to last all day.
The perfume has top notes of bergamot, bigarade leaves and orange blossom, middle notes of parma violet and white musk base notes.
Overall this perfume has fresh, non-powdery flowery and citrus scent, the musk is not over powering and you can definitely smell the orange blossom, though I am not sure about the bigarade leaves, as I have never heard of them and do not know what they smell of. As I said I use two to three sprays and this will last for around 12 hours, I notice the scent starts to fade after about 4 hours, but this is probably as I get used to it. I have been using the perfume for around 6 months, two to three times per week and still have plenty left, so at this rate it will last me around 18months.
I would recommend this perfume to others who like delicate, fresh flowery scents that last well, and if you can get it for a bargain price, it makes it even better. This is not just a summer scent, I tend to wear it all year round, and also the bottle is lovely to look at.
Summary: Attractive bottle, great smell
