I was talking with some beauty buffs the other day when we came to the joint conclusion that Kenzo is one of the very few brands that can do fashion, skincare, and fragrance all while maintaining a consistent image. One way or another, you see some kind of well thought-out “Oriental” touch in their skincare and fragrances. While I definitely wouldn’t call their latest fragrance launch, *Jeu d’Amour Eau de Parfum, an Oriental creation, one particular note does still convey that vibe in an otherwise woody floral.
