Thus far, only a few perfumes have utilised the power of black plum. As soon as you experience its captivating aroma, you'll understand why it's one to watch!

Rose perfumes have a reputation for being overly sweet - something that's not the case with Bulgarian rose. Known as ‘liquid gold’, its scent is light and sophisticated. Depending on the product, up to 1300 roses can make as little as 1 gram of Bulgarian Rose essence. For that reason, it’s one of the rarest and most valuable perfume ingredients. Only recently has it come to mainstream perfumes - why not be the first to snap it up?
Where to find it: Flower by Kenzo Eau de Lumière. This sensual and oh-so-feminine fragrance is both radiant and energetic - the total opposite to deep, musky perfumes. If you prefer fresh and floral scents, it's undoubtedly the one for you. Bulgarian Rose is met with zest, jasmine and delicate pear. It's the perfect Kenzo perfume for gifting loved ones - or yourself!
Have you heard of yuzu yet? This citrus fruit is similar to lemon or lime, but a little more exotic. Harvested in China, Korea and Japan, it’s slowly making its way into perfume bottles around the world. A squirt of yuzu perfectly balances sweet floral scents, hence why select Kenzo fragrances are utilising its refreshing citrus tones. Perfume connoisseurs love to pair it with jasmine scents for a blend that’s fresh yet complex.
Where to find it: The L'eau Kenzo Homme Eau De Toilette Pour. This edt may be light yet you won't find it lacking complexity. Yuzu and frosted mint create unrivalled freshness, while subtle cedarwood adds smoky depth. Not too heavy, its delicate scent lingers in the air long after you’ve departed the room. While this Kenzo fragrance can be worn all year round, its cool tones are especially well-suited to the winter months.
Oriental Mandarin is at the heart of many a Kenzo signature scent. Its fresh brightness is captivating when paired alongside other Eastern accords just as tea, lotus and jasmine.

There's no time like the present to get on the bandwagon with a moreish mandarin accord...
