(You can be expecting a lot more fragrance reviews for the next little while, I've got a bunch lined up!)
I was immediately interested when I saw this bottle.- simple, yet\ eye-catching, I thought it was really cool.
Flower by Kenzo is a very interesting and layered scent, with many different and strong base, top, and middle notes. (If you aren't sure what those are, read here.)
When I initially smelled this for the first time, my impression was pretty much this:
"WHOAWOW WOW WOW THIS IS SOME STRONG STUFF!"
That impression still stands. Despite being quite heavy and lasts a long time, it is a clean scent, in a way. (A very strange way.)
You can definitely smell the flowers that were added to it, along with some other, more musky scents.
I couldn't detect this at first, but upon just smelling it, it does smell somewhat like old lady perfume. Which is a MAJOR NO-NO.
Aside from that, it kind of reminds me of the Titanic...and Africa. That sounds pretty strange, I know. I say it smells like the Titanic because it smells like what I would have imagined a lot of those women wore at that time. Just that time period. And Africa? It reminds me of Africa because it reminds me of freedom and power, but in a restricting way.
I truly believe that this is one of those products that are big for a little while, then deemed "unwanted" after that obsession is over. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone that wants a fragrance just for day-to-day activities. I wouldn't wear this unless I was at something really, really, super-duper-mega fancy. (And maybe not even then.)
So, overall rating time!
Scent: 2 stars
Look: 4 stars
And, the overall score is:
