    Default Appreciation Thread #11 : Tokyo by Kenzo (including Youtube review link)



    Tokyo by Kenzo (2007)

    Hi guys another review for everyone. I'm not sure how many BN'ers actually tested this one out or has tried it, but let me know in the comments section, let me know what you think or either the fragrance or my youtube review. Either or is fine with me.

    Toyko is a fragrance I got when I was overseas and I really do enjoy it, and it actually made me really intrested in other Kenzo scents. It is my only scent from that house at the moment but I will be looking to purchase others. I will start putting numbers on these threads so we all know where I am on how many I have reviewed ,again link at the bottom of this post for the video .

    I love your intro music As I've found out many, many members on here are into electronic music. I've always wondered what the correlation could be.

    Another great review by the way! You must have a lot of money I tried Kenzo Power and would be a fantastic spring fragrance.

    My first Kenzo was Power. It is a well blended unisex floral which makes me keen to test out others in Kenzo's stable. Thanks for the review. Will put Tokyo on my test list.

    Gotta love that electronic music to keep you going during the day lol

    Kenzo really got me with Tokyo, so I will be checking out at least two more Kenzo Frags. before the year is done.

    Ohh yes! Exactly Yeah I've only tried Kenzo Pour Homme Fresh.. which was alright. More or less just an average aquatic, but Power really struck me. I've never smelled a floral fragrance for men.

    Tokyo is one of the few fragrances that I have tried at Sephora (over the many years I have been dropping into that store to sample fragrances all of the time) that literally made me nauseous and wanted to scrub off when I sprayed it on. Horrible stuff. No offense to it's fans, but I just thought it was vile stuff. Horribly synthetic smelling.

    Like alot of the posts here, I'd definitely say give Kenzo Power a shot, I love that fizzy citrus opening, and the floral heart is really really nice. a good pick me up on those dreadful monday mornings.

    oh, and thanks for the review, I've seen all your reviews and I particularly like the bits about the frag's longevity and sillage, a bit more on the how the frag smells itself would be great though.

    Great review! It's interesting - I've always concentrated so hard on the woody note that I love, that I never realized that, on the whole, it is a bit spicy, especially at first.

    I was totally LOL about your having trashed the Play box with JT on it. I think it was the way you said it so casually - it just struck me as hilarious. I've actually come to like JT a bit as he's gotten older, but it was still a hoot. Now I do have to admit - the Play ad in GQ where he's slouching in first class / private jet - he just looks sharp. Great ad.

    Tokyo is definitely one of my faves. I think Power is a better fragrance, but I'm just addicted to the woody note in Tokyo. I can sniff it all day. I get mega-longevity from this one, but I agree that a noon refresher is worth it, because those top notes are awesome.

    PS - Nice lighting in the vid!

    Very nice review. Of the 9 Kenzos I have in my collection, Tokyo is among the top.

    Would like to see a review of Kenzo power in the future to see what the OP thinks of it.
