Not exactly a new fragrance, nor a flanker, L'Eau de Kenzo Amour is a beautiful new bottle among the other from the collection. In fact, the perfume would be the eau de cologne version of Kenzo Amour, a much lighter version for the sweet oriental notes rich in crystal amber, synthetic vanilla and wrapped in a sublime velvet musky coat. L'Eau de Kenzo Amour is actually the classic perfume rebalanced, with more accent on the fresh top notes and light florals and less accent on the oriental drydown of the original where Black de Bulgari is mesmerized by the vanillic sweetness of Hypnotic Poison. Also, it is extremely different from Kenzo Amour Eau Florale with its strong disturbing neroli note. Comparing the 2 versions, EDT and L'Eau, there is not really a watery accord but more a fresh limpid flower between freesia-honeysuckle and green jasmine. This jasmine facet surrounded by vanilla suggests the morning dew freshness of peony melted with the honeyed whiteness of blooming acacia. When you add to this ylang ylang and the opulent vanilla note, a signature of Kenzo Amour, you obtain a tiaré-frangipanni bouquet (the accord is close to a famous and exquisite shower gel). Like most of the perfumes from Kenzo, this one is extremely beautiful with an exquisite construction and sense of harmony.
