Type: Eau de Parfum
Description: The Essential of Flowerbykenzo
The soul of Flowerbykenzo centres round its most emblematic notes.
Each accord is signed with precision. Enriched. The quality uncompromised.
The Rose and Musks become more generous and faceted.
A purist approach to the selection of ingredients.
Flowerbykenzo is composed of 3 accords: floral, powdery, vibrant
FLORAL ACCORD which the principal notes are rose and jasmine.
Damascena Rosa _ essence (steam distillation)
Damascena Rosa _ absolute (cold extraction)
The distillation (essence) and the extraction (absolute) express different olfactory elements.
The Rosa Damascena is used as essence for its freshness and sparkle, and as absolute for a more sophisticated femininity. Thereby expressing all its facets.
Accordingly, the essence and the absolute are combined in the eau de parfum essentielle in an attempt to express the flower in all of its complexity.
The Rose therefore becomes more abundant and more faceted.
White flower par excellence, the Jasmine absolute is naturally voluptuous and opulent.
Barely present in the original eau de parfum, the perfumer gives it a new strength in the eau de parfum essentielle.
Used in the form of an absolute, it gives Flowerbykenzo a more voluptuous florality.
POWDERY ACCORD which the principal notes are muscs and vanilla.
A very musky heart : A combination of 3 musks, each with its own specific accent: vibrant for one, floral for the other and powdery for the third.
This accord gives the fragrance sensuality and softness. Used as base note, this extremely faceted and textured accord grants the composition a striking remanence.
The Vanilla absolute gives the fragrance a sensual touch and a slightly powdery tone.
The addition of Vanilla absolute gives the original vanilla note extra denseness.
VIBRANT ACCORD which the principal notes are incense and spices.
Already present in the eau de parfum, it features more strongly and in its purest quality in the eau de parfum essentielle (incense essence).
Darker and more vibrant, it serves to provide a contrast to the colourful floral notes and gives the fragrance an exuberant elegance right from the top notes.
Pink Berries (essence) and Black Berry facet the eau de parfum’s very slightly spicy note.
They bring a new modernity.
The natural raw ingredients exist in several forms according to the process by which they are collected:
* The essence (obtained by steam or hot distillation) expresses the volatile tones of the flower (or of the natural raw ingredient in general)
* The absolute (obtained by cold extraction) expresses the dense tones of the flower (or of the natural raw ingredient in general)
These two processes make it possible to reveal the different facets of the natural raw ingredients.
