Kenzo Perfumes for Women: Where East Meets West

Kenzo Perfumes: Kenzo Perfume Brand and Women's Perfume Reviews

Kenzo Fashion House


Fueled by oriental culture and traditions, Kenzo Takada's creations, among them Kenzo perfumes for women, are geared towards a multicultural fashion that blends the East and West into one vibrant colorful world.

Kenzo style is rather eclectic, a true world cross-over. It does not confine fashion around the archetypal boundaries dictated mainly by western fashion norms. Visionary, modish and timeless fashion and perfume creations by Kenzo House draw an inspiration from the free expression of individuality, its inherent energy.

Kenzo creations, especially perfumes, aim to embody the balance between human and nature, the body and spirit.



Kenzo Takada, the Founder of Kenzo Fashion Brand


Born 1939 in Himeji (Japan), Kenzo Takada's first immersion into the fashion world was through reading his sisters' fashion magazines.

First he attended University of Kobe but he hadn't found his heart there, so he left it in favor of fashion. In 1958, he followed his passion for fashion by enrolling to prestigious Bunka Fashion College (Tokyo, Japan).

In 1960s, with diploma on hand, he moved to Paris which was the renowned capital of fashion where he entered the fashion industry by selling sketches, attending fashion shows, and networking. Kenzo's success was a typical dream story where at the beginning he had little money to afford excellent fabrics. But because of his ingenuity he managed to create exceptional works out of scrap fabrics.

Kenzo's wit and charm have fueled his achievements and provided an absolutely new vibe through his radical knitwear, ethnic and boho themes into the archetypal Parisienne haute couture.

Establishing Kenzo Fashion House

It was in 1970, when Kenzo fashion house was established, that Kenzo Takada experienced his first real success in fashion. Aside from presenting his fashion collection at the Vivienne Gallery, he also opened his first boutique, 'Jungle Jap', and one of his models was presented on the cover of Elle, the fashion magazine.

After establishing his name in Paris, he was soon invited to present his works in New York and Tokyo, respectively. In 1972, he garnered the Fashion Editor Club of Japan's prize. He proved his talent in 1978, and 1979, when his fashion shows were staged in a circus tent. To close the show, horsewomen performers wearing transparent clothes paraded the runway and Kenzo himself walked the runway riding an elephant, his favourite animal.

Brining his Oriental fashion design in his creations, most of Kenzo's early works were based on the traditional Japanese dress, kimono. His sense of style appealed to the young and after some time his unique 'big silhouette' design has become a worldwide phenomenon. It was indeed a mix of the East and the West, traditions and cultures, human & nature, a revolutionary vision that Kenzo has mastered through time.

Today fashion creations by Kenzo (now owned by LVMH, the world's largest luxury goods conglomerate) are looked up as a standard for modern cultural assimilation. His creations are continuously enlivened by his loyal assistants such as Antonio Marras basing their new releases on the vision of master Kenzo - layers, colors and shapes combined in marvelous creations.

Kenzo Parfums: Establishing the House of Kenzo Perfumes

Flower By Kenzo
Kenzo Parfums house was established with the launch of its first fragrance in 1988 which was named after Kenzo himself - Kenzo de Kenzo. In 1989, after an astounding success, the fragrance was re-launched as Ça Sent Beau. Since then Kenzo perfumes have gained much following from across the globe, many of them acquiring the best-selling positions.

Kenzo perfumes try to follow the Kenzo fashion style closely; they harmoniously merge the western notes with oriental scents, creating aromas that transcend the striking differences of the two opposite worlds, the East and the West.

Kenzo perfumes are versatile and innovative. Some signature Kenzo fragrances, such as the flagship perfumes Flower by Kenzo, Kenzo Amour or L'Eau par Kenzo are absolutely timeless, expounding on the values Kenzo Takada has established through the years: pairing of the East & West, balancing human & nature, travelling the world...

In 1999, after the retirement of Kenzo Takada, Odile Lobadowsky was installed as the CEO of Kenzo Parfums with Patrick Guedj as the creative director. The Kenzo Parfums house broadened its market in 2001 through its skin care product line, still holding the values of Kenzo as well the strong oriental influences, perfectly complementing Kenzo fragrances.

Kenzo perfumes are also known for their emotional, feel-good, almost esoteric type of advertising approach. Kenzo perfume ads are beautiful and poetic (and so are the names of the perfumes); they show the world through pinky-colored glasses ;). Some of the most famous spokesmodels for Kenzo perfumes include Olga Kurylenko (the Bond girl) for the Kenzo Amour family and Japanese actress Lika Minamoto for Flower by Kenzo.

Kenzo Perfumes: The Spirit of Kenzo's Fashion Vision and Values Bottled

Kenzo perfumes shine the perfection of fusing the two opposite ends of the world, so different in cultures and traditions, yet so complementary: the East and the West.

Ethereal, dreamy Kenzo perfumes for women speak of simple, yet mystical beauty of all the colors of life and the whole world - the beautiful world that is your home.


Kenzo Perfumes: Kenzo Women's Perfume Reviews

Flower by Kenzo: Signature Scent of Modern Enchantress1) The world is beautiful with Flower by Kenzo (EDP), an imaginary fragrance of a red poppy flower which is really scentless. Flower by Kenzo is oriental - floral fragrance, powdery with emphasis on floral notes. Wearing this perfume, you will feel light, peaceful, beautiful, feminine gentle. It is the signature scent of an elegant urban woman, who wants to have a vivid link with nature... The kind of woman that wants to smell perfectly cut lawn in a concrete jungle.

Recommended as one of the most universal perfume gifts for women...

2) Kenzo Amour by Kenzo (EDP) takes you on a beautiful journey of love through Asia. Floral woody musky perfume opens with exotic Frangipani blossom, continues with gentle cherry blossom, comforting white tea, and spicy Frankincense. Dry down is sensual and warm woodsy-musky and creamy vanillic emitted from the notes of thanaka wood, rice and vanilla.

Beautiful & comforting, widely wearable & appealing and an excellent perfume gift for women, especially for Christmas.
Olga Kurylenko for Kenzo Amour by Kenzo (EDP)
