If you love citruses, you will adore the fragrant pair called L’Eau 2 Kenzo and introduced in May this year as flankers to L’Eau 2 Kenzo, Pour Femme and Pour Homme from 1996 and 1999 respectively. Because I liked the original masculine version, which brought innovation into the olfactory concept 13 years ago, I wanted to sample L’Eau 2 Kenzo Pour Homme, however, in this case my intention was not associated with high expectations. To my pleasant surprise, this new scent is exactly the type of stylish and refreshing fragrance that represents the aromatic accessory for this summer.
Belonging to the citrus aromatic olfactory group, L’Eau 2 Kenzo Pour Homme was developed by perfumer Sonia Constant, who re-discovered water as a source of inspiration and a symbol of purity and freshness. The video advertisement was shot in Roma and connects the fragrances with the idea of spending an impulsive and energetic adventure in a large capital, comparable to the city mentioned earlier.
I sampled L’Eau 2 Kenzo Pour Homme last Saturday in Sephora and because I was in a hurry and coming after a couple of other sampled scents, I sprayed it directly onto my wrist, eluding the usual blotter. Luckily it was a good decision, because from the first accords I could tell that this fragrance is going to be an interesting one. The freshness from the top notes arrived with the courtesy of citrus blend, prepared from bitter orange and grapefruit and juxtaposed to the spicy note of ginger. Then, as the perfume advanced into the mid development phase, the unmistakable aroma of lavender was perceivable, offset by a hint of juniper berry. The final part is calm and more personal, bringing into this structure the notes of vetiver, cedar and spruce.
The flacon that holds L’Eau 2 Kenzo Pour Homme has a minimalistic image and preserves the lines from the original perfume, this time the transparency of the glass being excellently complemented by an orange hue employed for the perfume’s name.
