I have a love affair with Kenzo World Eau de Parfum since last year, for which I shared the details and my thoughts here, I have been wearing this new fragrance from Kenzo these days, launched in January 2018. Kenzo World Eau de Toilette is described as the sparkling fragrance for a woman who does not take herself seriously. This lingering fragrant trail led like a burst of laughter by the perfumer duo, Francis Kurkdjian, and Maïa Lernout, offers an amazing fruity floral accord between sparkling pear, luminous peony and almond blossom, and feminine orris. A definitely feminine bouquet smiling at life. Kenzo World Eau de Toilette, the fragrance for a joyful and mischievous woman. “This is a fruity, floral, vibrant flight of fancy to which pear brings lightness and enticement.” Francis Kurkdjian and Maïa Lernout
“This extroverted Eau de toilette is for a woman who dares to be different, unfazed by society or the norm, her need for exhilaration and enthusiasm acts as a magnet to all. The Kendo World Perfume complements her wild side. Its vivacious aroma and mischevious personality are the perfect match for her adventurous aura.”
The eye-catching bottle is crafted in a pink gold-tone metal and opaline. Its every element evokes the mix-and-match of the Kenzo world. The gommato cap is inspired by the iconic Kenzo Kalifornia bags and the precious accent in pink gold-tone metal evokes the “THE EYE”jewelry collection, while the sandblasted glass texture enhances the beauty of this radical approach by creating an unexpected visual contrast. The mysterious, fascinating eye reveals itself in various ways according to the point of view, from the front or top.
The top note of the fragrance is Pear, middle notes are Peony and Almond Blossom, base note is Orris Root.
Peony, featured in the original, is refreshed by a fizzy pear note and additional blossoms, placed on a woody and earthy base dominated by orris. The fragrance is a very light everyday fragrance which is appropriate for the office or the consevative environment. It is fresh, delicate and powdery. I like the fruity sweetness of the pear in combination with the floral notes, which harmonizes really nice. It is perfect for the spring and the days you want to wear something light, and still smell pretty. The fragrance stays on well for almost 5-6 hours with powdery noted coming into play as time passes after the application and then fades with the base notes lingering around for few hours. From the packaging to the scent, I am really liking it and looking forward to spring to use it in a full blown daily mode. If you like flowery, fruity, fresh, and sweet fragrance which is light, you need to give it a sniff.
Kenzo World Eau de Toilette will be available at Hudson's Bay and Sephora from March 21st, 2018.
