Intended as a scent for all seasons, as everlasting as water, L’Eau par Kenzo is a floral aquatic perfume for women, introduced in 1996 and developed by perfumer Olivier Cresp. Advertised on the official website as “The serene expression of freshness, a persistent trail that’s full of sensuality”, L’Eau par Kenzo exhibits a number of different themes associated with water. Referring to the source of inspiration for the scent, Kenzo mentions that this is “Simply, the perfume of a happy woman”. Moreover, the description of the scent mentions ‘a source of wealth, purity, vitality, youth and infinity’.
The construction of L’Eau par Kenzo is linear, appealing to simple ingredients that are cleverly mixed to obtain an impressive result. The opening is radiant in a blend of frosted mint, pink berries and mandarin. Then, it follows a translucent mid development built from lotus flower aquatic accord and peach which conveys femininity upon the senses. Finally, the dry down encompasses cedar wood enveloped in white musk. In this fragrance, different from the classic aquatic scents, the dominant notes of citrus were replaced by a fresh creation, the floral aquatic.
The bottle that holds L’Eau par Kenzo looks like a drop of transparent glass, with a little blue ring in the upper part that adds elegance to the image. The packaging box exhibits a minimal design with the name written in blue in a transversal view. The cardboard reminds of the White Sands desert in New Mexico, while the back of the package is imprinted with a poem written by Kenzo.
