Flower by Kenzo Winter Flowers (2008) {New Perfume}

Kenzo-Winter-Flowers.jpgKenzo has launched a new winter flanker to their classic Flower by Kenzo launched in 2000 (it feels longer than that given how much it has become a reference point for powdery florals) called Winter Flowers. The composition is inspired very abstractly by three different flowers growing during the cold season, one of them given as being Hellebore or Christmas Rose, although it belongs to the buttercup family.

Although this Hellebore is said to be "sweetly scented", it seems that just as much, if not more so, the idea behind the scent is to render an aesthetic impression of "...startling blossoms and fragile beauty against the stark winter landscape."...

Like its 2000 predecessor the perfume is described as a floral and powdery scent. But, "Unlike the original FLOWERBYKENZO, WINTER FLOWERS incorporates a sparkling top note of mandarin, floral middle note of hellebore rose, and powdery base note of absolute vanilla."

According to Sephora, "This gently surprising scent opens with honey-hinted mimosa and brightens with green floral tones of camellia."  

Notes are: Bulgarian rose, Parma violet, Mandarin, Violet leaf, Mimosa, Camellia, Hellebore rose, Patchouli, Absolute vanilla, white musk.

It is a limited-edition and is priced at $65 for 50 ml.

    ANOTHER Flower by Kenzo flanker? This is ridiculous.

    Wake me up when Kenzo comes up with something truly new.

    • Well you know the saying: why fix something that is working? But let's keep an open mind...who knows, the perfume might have a nuance that is interesting and likable. But yes, a flanker is a flanker is a flanker and I suppose they are more targeting people who can't get enough of Kenzo Flower
