Kenzo celebrates the 20th anniversary of Kenzo Parfums and arrival of Kenzo Takada, the designer, on the Parisian scene.
In order to mark that special celebration, there will be a special perfume launch – Kenzo Vintage to remind everyone of the “live-and-let-live” flower power times. As powdery as any other Kenzo perfume, Kenzo Vintage is:
“a beautiful, abstract yet sensual fragrance and can be labeled as a soft woody oriental. It succeeds somehow in evoking a peaceful traditional Japanese home just barely emerging from the silence as the sound of footsteps is muffled by a floor covered with tatami on which walking can create a silky rustling sound. The smell of rice straw completes the impression.”
Here, on Earth, we call this: mandarin, tonka bean, heliotrope flower, cedar wood, musk and vanilla notes all that available in a purple bottle with the peace symbol engraved on, costing $65.
Given I was always a big fan of Kenzo fragrances, I’m curious to know how it smells because this review has done everything except describing the actual perfume! Does anyone speak “perfume-ish” to translate? Or, better, have you already tried Kenzo Vintage?
