Kenzo Madly Kenzo Eau De Toilette

upload-2Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance that’s been sitting in my stash for quite some time – it’s Madly Kenzo Eau De Toilette by Kenzo.

I bought this fragrance just after it was launched which, I think, was some time in 2011. Back then I used this fragrance for a few days (a few weeks tops) before I moved on to something else (and forgot about it).

If you’re wondering how I could possibly remember that… I don’t! But I’ve known myself for a long time and I know my product habits. 😀

Now onto the fragrance! Madly Kenzo EdT contains the following fragrant notes: pear and litchi (top notes), jasmine and heliotrope (heart notes), and musk and cedarwood (base notes).

Whilst these notes don’t sound too exciting, I think Madly Kenzo is actually quite nice. It’s sweet but fresh, fruity and floral, youthful and happy (!), and it has this nude thing going on (like J Lo Glow or Narciso Rodriguez EdT, even though Madly Kenzo EdT is much lighter and considerably less dense).

I have to say that I’m enjoying this fragrance very much. I’ve rediscovered it a few weeks ago and since then I’ve been wearing it at least 2 to 3 times a week. At the moment, Madly Kenzo EdT is one of my favourite day and office fragrances.

I have a 30ml bottle (I think I’ve got about 20ml left in the bottle), but Madly Kenzo EdT is also available as 50ml and 80ml. How much is it? I’ve done a quick online search and I found the small 30ml bottle ‘on sale’ (yeah, right) for over £40. But I also found the big 80ml bottle for just under £26. So if you’d like to buy this fragrance, don’t forget to compare prices online first. 🙂

Limited Edition – L’Eau Par Kenzo Ice

L'Eau Par Kenzo IceHi there! I finished this fragrance – L’Eau Par Kenzo Ice (aka Kenzo Ice) very recently. I’ve never reviewed it – so I thought it’s about time to review it now. 🙂

OK, let’s start! Kenzo Ice is a limited edition summer fragrance from a few years ago.

It contains the following notes: mint, ginger and lemon (top notes), freesia (heart note), and vetiver, vanilla and ambrette (base notes).

Kenzo Ice has an overall cold and fresh feel to it. It smells like cool mint with a drop of lemon juice. The mint note is very longlasting – and the fragrance doesn’t really develop. So Kenzo Ice is basically all about cool mint and lemons.

Even though this fragrance is for women (there’s a separate edition for men), it doesn’t smell very womanly at all. I think Kenzo Ice is a unisex fragrance – but it’s more on the masculine side.

Whilst Kenzo Ice isn’t very special, I think it’s a decent fragrance for hot summer days. If you’re interested in Kenzo Ice, you should check if you can find it online. Since it was discontinued a while ago, you won’t find it in brick and mortar stores.
