Received a sample thanks to a fellow basenoter. This aquatic citrus frag is perfect for the summer. Don't let the mildness of this one fool ya. It can be cloying if oversparyed. Overall, a nice frag which mildly comes at ya with a nice mint and green vibe.

This one is not my cup of tea, I guess. It just smells like bathroom cleaner on my skin... Not hideous cleaner to be sure, but why do I want to smell like *that*? Superb staying power and is relatively potent for this kind of scent, so for those who do enjoy it my recommendation is go easy on the trigger. 2 stars out of 5.
This fragrance is the very definition of an aquatic - airy, watery, ozonic and citric. However, it falls flat after that initial burst of freshness. Its notes are rather linear and don't change much, though you probably wouldn't notice even if they did, since its longevity and sillage are very poor - it gets very faint about 30 minutes after you spray it, and by the fourth hour you would be hard-pressed to detect it even if you bring your wrist up to your nose. All in all, this fragrance has too little staying power to be recommended.
This is gorgeous! One of the best fresh/aquatic scents that i've ever had and smelled. It's clean, fresh and crisp. If this had more lasting power, it would me one of my top ten fragrances. Worth it.
L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme is like a bomb. Upon initial spray, once is treated with a blast of minty ice cool freshness. It reminds me of menthol toothpaste, wherein after brushing, your teeth feels clean and fresh. That is how I felt when I wore this today. However, sad to say that the icy freshness last only for a short while. After 1 - 2 hours you cannot smell anything anymore, but that short blast lingered in my mind for awhile as I recall the cool feeling it brought me at first.
It started off with a strong citrus notes which I love it very much. After 30mins, the fragrance is so light u cant smell it anymore.
L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme by Kenzo - Initially, one is treated to a biting and sparkling blast of yuzo, somewhere between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange, with its lemon-like tangy and floral aspects. This sharp and bright citrus slowly pairs with ho leaf, which tinges the pseudo-lemon with its spicy and sweet, floral and rosewood overtones, yielding an almost lemon, furniture polish accord, morphing the stark citrus into a luscious smoothness. The refreshing, watery middle beckons. Here, in the heart, the pseudo-lemon is immersed in a bath of lotus flower, with its lovely, water lily greenness with a hint of mint, sharp and fresh ozone notes, as well as refreshful aquatic notes, with its faint, marine and mint accord, and steeps into a soothing lemonade. Pleasant white musk usurps the cool blend into the awaiting base, imparting its sweet and floral facets, and its cohort, green pepper, adds a kiss of earthiness before meandering to the light and airy drydown. A wonderful fragrance to be turned to in the heat of the summer, this fresh and crisp composition is a vibrant, green, lemony and woody scent, and has average longevity and projection. In the sweaty dog days of the summer, you need this!
I've come to love this fragrance as an alternative to the popular summer hot weather scents. The Kenzo brand isn't familiar to everyone, so this might be a hidden gem, a sleeper hit, or whatever cliche you prefer. The initial scent was nothing special, but the dry-down is intoxicating and watery. I almost feel like I am smelling pond water. I know that probably sounds disgusting, but I am fascinated by it. Floral notes make up the garden around the stagnant pond, including lotus and a unique lemon peel essence that is nothing like the ubiquitous cheap lemon cleaner smell. The longevity is average and sillage is moderately weak. People will have to go in for a full embrace to get the full scent of you. I actually prefer these qualities in a frag used in hot weather and casual situations.
Nothing to add to the other reviews, at the opening it's lemonated and a bit energizing by mint note, than goes down smooth and musky without loosing the citrusy temperament. The lemon is not acid or harsh but fluid and delicate, though fresh, as an oriental kind of lemonated and spicy tea. The scent is aquatic but in an oriental way. The synthetic kind of invigorating tea is mentholated and medially sweet because of some floral aquatic note. Longevity is in the average. A bit modest.
I prefer this baby after Energise or Clear Day. Not many people wear this anymore, I guess. Fresh and soft.
