An amazing fragrance from an amazing perfumer. When I wear Time for Peace, I can't help but think YSL M7, there's something about it that reminds me of it. Maybe it's the cherry like accord that mixes with the herbal smell; it comes off as very medicinal.
In the opening I get a complex blend of many notes. Sage, mandarin, cherry, tonka, incense, cinnamon, with a very resinous amber in the background. Like others have said, this is a soft fragrance. Soft, but ever so bold. TfP really makes a statement. Is it worth 200+ a bottle.. well, that's what you would be spending, roughly, to get your hands on this rare little gem. If you can afford it, then get it, ya, it's really good!
Feels like a variation of Bulgari Black which Annick Menardo also created. You get the impression that Menardo wanted Bulgari to release this as a flanker to Black, but Bulgari said no so she took her formula to Kenzo. Adds a delightful mandarin orange note to the Black formula that gives Black fans a scent suitable for daytime wear. Sadly, Time for Peace for Him is discontinued and hard to find.
Like Yohji Homme, and many things Japanese, Time For Peace Pour Lui is an extremely light and inoffensive scent. Opens with a very thin Mandarin note that is accompanied lightly by some woods and spices, and rounded up with a small dose of vanilla. Extremely easy to wear and highly pleasant to the nose. Nothing sharp, synthetic, or harsh in this scent. It feels kind of airy.
What I remember smelling about this fragrance was that I was calmed but I agree that it didn't last long that was the only drawback. You'd need a mini to freshen up with. Other than that a beautiful fragrance.
Soft, gentle, muted, hushed. I take this beauty of a shiness inside of me.
