A scent can trigger a long-forgotten memory in a split second, making your choice of perfume as essential as your soundtrack for Summer ’16. Our pick? ‘Flower by Kenzo Eau Florale’, Kenzo’s sunny update on their classic fragrance.
Like the original ‘Flower by Kenzo’, ‘Eau Florale’ centres on Bulgarian rose; for 2016, however, the brand adds peony petals, rosebuds and freesia to the bouquet, alongside vanilla, white musks and a grapefruit top note. It’s a scent to transport even the perennially office-bound to a grassy knoll under blue skies, regardless of the British weather’s drizzly reality.
Of the fragrance, Kenzo tells us, “Its cheerful optimism and sparkling vitality creates an endless pattern like a hymn to happiness,” which all sounds pretty tempting to us. Add in a poppy print bottle just begging to be Instagrammed atop your newly tidied dressing table? Consider us sold.
