Don't recall Kenzo well, but enough to know it's not like that. Not like D&G homme - it does not have that awful Goo Gone smell that D&G homme has before the drydown.
It's direct, sharp, fresh, but somehow not overpowering. It has some progression, but it does not morph into anything dramatically different. Some have claimed it was the formula for D&G light blue for men, before some mix up happened or D&G lost/gave away the formula - I think that rumor is on the board.
The other poster said it best, it's like D&G LIGHT blue for women (or men for that matter since those are similar), but in a sense - better. It's doesn't screw around with being light.
I am not really a fan of citruses, but this one has something weird or synthetic (one poster/reviewer mentions Windex which is a good description) mixed into the formula that I really like. It keeps it from smelling lemony and instead makes it very sharp and fresh - it's tough to describe but I'm trying my best, lol.

Doubt it - Eau Fraiche wants nothing to do with sweet, strawberries or fruit. You could not possibly have smelled EF to make that comparison, unless you did and just did not like it.
