Kenzo Power Cologne fragrance notes

Reviews of Kenzo Power Cologne

Despite the fact that I'm testing this fragrance via an official sample, I was totally shocked when I saw cologne word in the name and also grouping it as a "Citrus Aromatic" fragrance because what I'm smelling here is an oriental spicy fragrance or maybe even oriental woody!

The opening of this fragrance is a smooth, semi sweet, soft powdery and soft floral scent mixed with some woodsy notes and a mellow earthy aura in the background. the woody part smells kind of medicinal and bitter with a strange kind of background aura that smells like sulfur! (no joke!) to sum up things, the opening is a smooth bitter medicinal woody smell mixed with smooth and semi sweet powdery floral notes that they balance each other perfectly.

After a few minutes that medicinal woody sulfur kind of aura fades away and now scent changes to a resinous and oily scent mixed with semi sweet musk and some bitter herbal aroma that I believe is because of lemon verbena note. since that woody part gets much weaker in the dry down, now that powdery floral aroma can shine better. the dry down of the fragrance is a little fresher and smoother than the opening but it lasts only for about 15-20 minutes and then scent changes very much!

After a while the bitter green aroma disappears and scent starts to warm up in a sharp spicy way that smells like mixture of black pepper and some other spices that they feel pungent and kind of sour! this change pushes those powdery floral notes completely in the background and as time goes by this spicy feel gets stronger and stronger. also that semi sweet musky scent changes it's position with a sweet creamy vanilla that helps tuning down the bitterness and sharpness and spices perfectly. you will have this scent for about 2 hours.

In the base things start to get smooth again! that sharp spicy aroma settles down quite it bit while powdery floral notes saying hello again and that creamy vanilla note also has a buttery and chocolaty smell (like the smell of melted butter in a hot pan plus adding a little bit of chocolate!). from what I've said you may think that this part is gourmand .... but it's not! it's much smoother to be a gourmand fragrance.
There is one interesting thing about this part. this warm, buttery, chocolaty and creamy sweet scent mixed with powdery flowers and some bitter spicy aroma somehow remind me of the smell of "Dior Homme Intense" and "Valentino Uomo". definitely not as warm and as strong as those, but with the same DNA and the same overall feel only in a smooth way!
Projection is average or maybe a little more than average and longevity is around 4-5 hours on my skin.

P.S: Don't let the cologne name fools you. this is not a fresh summer time fragrance. a cool spring day? ... sure. fall? ...definitely. winter? maybe. why not? but summer? I don't think so!

To me, this is a surprise from Kenzo. Kenzo usually produces more daring designer scents. Power Cologne is anything but daring. It's common -- smells like a million other fragrances, though women's. Floral and citrus, overly sweet and nauseating up top, with that "perfumy" smell going on. A bit too concentrated really; too much packed into the opening. This is nothing like the original Kenzo Power. This is generic, boring, and a headache in a bottle.

Very refreshing, very soapy. To me the Geranium/Verbena combo is dominating throughout the whole life of the fragrance. The Tolu balm is difficult to enjoy as it only comes out in the drydown - when the fragrance is very close to the skin. Overall quality summer scent for those guys who are not afraid of flowers (for bargain bin price!).

Quite different from the Kenzo Power EdP. A sweet and "round" fragrance. I have to try it again...
