Of course, the delicate poppy appears as if encrusted in the glass of “Flower by Kenzo” as if the fragrance’s creator nose, Alberto Morillas, had wanted to capture it in order to better capture its scent …
“Flower by Kenzo” will bring its touch of small scent revolution by offering a modernized return of powdery notes, connoted as outdated, to the new millennium. Thus the top notes will open with tangy and lively notes of mandarin, fruity scents of blackcurrant and spicy notes of pink berries. An astonishing and fragrant cocktail of freshness that will be captured by a flowery heart of precious flowers such as jasmine, hawthorn, rose, carnation and violet. Then the deep and powdery trail created by notes of vanilla, white musks and opoponax will form a modern powdery base full of sensual curves.
“Flower by Kenzo” is therefore formed around a poppy vibrating with powerful materials, punctuated by rare and precious bucolic flights and powdered with round and opulent depths. “The poppy has no smell, Kenzo created its perfume. That of a unique and timeless flower, of a militant flower in the city. “Kenzo.

Flower by Kenzo, the magic of the scented poppy
As much present on the bottle as in the advertisement, the poppy is the emblem of “Flower by Kenzo”. The poppy is a delicate, fragile, ultra-feminine flower and Alberto Morillas has decided to build his composition around this flower, which is rather rare in perfumery. Pure and unexpected, “Flower by Kenzo” perfectly resembles the poppy. In reality, “Flower by Kenzo” was built around three chords.
The first was developed around the Parma violet. The Parma violet is one of the 550 varieties of the violet. Vivacious and rustic, Parma violet delicately displays its purplish color. The second accord is that of wild hawthorn. The latter is a bushy tree, which can be found in all regions of France. The hawthorn notes are reproduced in perfumery, synthetically mainly thanks to anisic aldehyde, first used by Guerlain. Wild hawthorn offers floral and voluptuous tones. Finally, the third chord is built around the Bulgarian rose. The Bulgarian rose finally has a European label. Bulgaria and Turkey are the main producers of Bulgarian rose. Sumptuous and elegant, the Bulgarian flower is unmatched in perfumery. Its scent is floral and essential in niche perfumery. The base is filled with Bourbon vanilla, white musks and opoponax, thus offering an ultra sensual and delicate trail … A unique floral and powdery signature, between naturalness and sophistication.
