Last week I was introduced to Kenzo Flower in the air at a lovely lunch at Emoyeni.
We sat at an outside area and I can only imagine how magnificent the view must be in a couple of weeks when everything’s a little greener (sorry Jo’burg, I still struggle with the deadness that is winter here). Nevertheless, we got to lounge outdoors around a long lunch table on one of the first hot Spring days – under oversized umbrellas of course, the sun would have fried us otherwise.
Kenzo Flower in the Air is a flanker of the original Kenzo flower, but it’s pretty different. While Kenzo Flower is known for its powdery floral fragrance, there isn’t a hint of powderiness in sight with Kenzo Flower in the Air. There’s raspberry and litchi in the top notes, rose and white florals in the middle notes and it’s built on base notes that include white musk.
The first thing my nose picks up is a ‘clean’ rose scent. After a couple of minutes I smell the berries and white flowers, and after some time it settles into a soft, rosy scent with an interesting undertone – there’s a hint of something that’s almost masculine that I pick up every now and then, and I have no idea what it is but it absolutely belongs there.
The fragrance is targeted at a younger, more fun market; but I think the prominent rose scent will attract fans of all ages.
It’s phasing into stores already, and it’s available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml EDP. I’ve managed to misplace my press pack, I’ll update with prices asap.
