Tell me this isn’t a thing of beauty! I love it! Flower by Kenzo has to be edging towards classic status, surely? It seems to have been around for a very long time in various guises. The thing I hadn’t particularly clocked until now about this fragrance is that poppies don’t actually have any scent. They’re all about the looks, these particular flowers, and I guess that’s where the fun of the design element comes in.
I love that this newest version is in a compact (the fragrance caught in a jelly that seeps through those tiny holes onto the puff which you then dab wherever you want the perfume) – we’re used to seeing foundation and blush come out of a cushion but I don’t think I’ve seen a cushion fragrance before, although I know there is a gorgeous pink Chanel one (Asia I think) and the Demeter brand has been experimenting with this format. I can only think more will come. So, back to the actual fragrance. It’s very floral – rose and violet – with sweet, fruity notes and down notes of white musk and vanilla. It’s powdery, which is why I like it and the vanilla isn’t too harsh. It’s also not that expensive either at £29.50 although bear in mind you will get a fraction of what you’d get in a bottle. You can find it HERE.
