The delicate blend of musk and flower petals drapes over the body like a radiant second-skin.
There is nothing more curious than spritzing the first spray of a perfume. But before I tried the new Flower by KENZO EDT Coral, the divine shape of the bottle already created some high expectations. It’s absolutely stunning.
The top note of sicilian lemon instantly brings the zest but with the subtle tinker of bulgarian rosewater, it calms down the intensity and gives the fragrance balance. It has a really clean combination - like that feeling of getting into fresh sheets on a Sunday evening. Bliss!
With the floral comes an unexpected but welcomed overlay of organic vanilla and white musk, injecting a pure energy into this EDT fragrance.
By personal preference, I am a huge fan of notes like vanilla and usually keep my florals on the side as my day scent also works as my night scent. I like my fragrance how I like my nightcap - dark and stormy. However, from pursuing a new curious attraction to Flower by KENZO, I have been pleasantly reaching for it while it sits on my dresser next to the bold, YSL Black Opium and Thierry Mugler Alien.
‘Flower’ is kind and nurturing, like my darling mother. To be honest, that is how I feel towards this scent. The fragrance gives a sense of grounding. It takes me down memory lane of that motherly hug after a fat cry over the boy that didn’t text back.
Sometimes, you need that peppermint tea to cleanse your palette and I felt that after a hot shower post-pilates, ‘Flower’ ignites a clean, polished feeling, which is where I see it fitting into my collection.
As a highly routined person, perfume is that final tick of the box. I like my perfume to ignite confidence and power - which is something I don’t feel until I put my leather boots on. But ‘Flower’ expects you to do that on your own. As a fellow sagittarius, I am after something a little more hearty and mysterious.
So although I wouldn’t spray it before a hot Hinge date, I would say that it definitely gives off a more light-hearted, girl-next-door demeanour. Perhaps that's a side I should unlock more often? Come to think of it, maybe this is the one I need to be wearing on those first dates.
