FLOWERBYKENZO ( yes all caps ) La Cologne is the summer light version of Kenzo's very popular Flower fragrance.

La Cologne starts off with powder and citrus together, the bergamot at the forefront and a hint of a soft rose note. Into the mid -point the green notes come in , not strong but mixed with the florals. By the drydown you've got some vanilla as well. To me it's a fresh rosy citrus floral.

It's somewhat like the original, but since I am a citrus fan , I like this more. It's light but not sheer and has good sillage.

The bottle is clear cylinder and it arrives in a paperboard cylinder box. Points for great packaging here, but that's the norm with Kenzo .

Full note list:
-Bitter orange, bergamot, orange and mandarin (essence).
-Rose( essence), orange blossom( absolute), and Neroli
-Musks and vanilla

FLOWERBYKENZO La Cologne retails for $ 72.00 for 3 oz /90ml
