    Default New Fragrance: Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Boisée / Woody

    From nstperfume.com:

    Kenzo will launch Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Boisée / Woody in September. The new fragrance for men is a flanker to 1991’s Kenzo Pour Homme (now known as Kenzo Homme or KenzoHomme).

    The strength of wood rises from the roots to the treetops. Like a tree, the KENZO man draws his strength from the energy of the earth. His gaze clears a path towards the sky. Without barriers. Without limits.

    Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Boisée / Woody is a woody aromatic fragrance, and was developed by perfumer Olivier Polge. The notes include mint, basil, black pepper, rosemary, Atlas cedar and Haitian vetiver.

    Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Boisée / Woody will be available in 30, 50 and 100 ml.

    I must say that this sounds interesting along with Comme des Garcons Wonderwood!!! It appears that the wood type scent is the new wave that is coming Our way!!! Kenzo does a very good job with their scents.....So this should be something to sample for sure!!!

    Agreed - both of these are big on my list now. Yes - Kenzo generally makes good decisions, and O. Polge is money in the bank. Power is still an amazing scent as far as I'm concerned.

    This is a very interesting combination of notes. There are bits of Roadster, TdH, and others in there. In any case, it does not sound wimpy.

    A Kenzo Homme flanker made by O. Polge does sound interesting indeed! I hope he got the mint right. For me that is. Can´t stand the mint in Roadster.

    O. Polge's creations are always well done, so I'm sure this will be sth interesting.

    Very interesting. I own Kenzo Homme and find it unique and different, yet I can't say this is the scent I use a lot. Sure am keen to try the flanker, though.

    From the sounds of it Olivier Polge is set on tranforming one of the best marine fragrances on the market into a generic vetiver-spice woody sports fragrance..

    generic? is the last word to be in a kenzo fragance. Well, kenzo house is a mainstream seller right? but i think they try in every fragance to stay away from a simple generic perfume.

    I'm a fan of the Kenzo men's frags for their amazing subtlety. I will be interested to see how they express a heavily wooded frag in their traditionally subtle way.

    So, anybody tried it? It is available already in some European countries.

    I'd like to try this as well. I love KenzoAir which sadly can't be found in the states, it seems.

    I saw this in Bloomingdale's over the weekend. It's a pleasant scent, not as strong of a wood as say... Hinoki. It's a Kenzo type of scent, somewhat more complex than some others they offer. The only problem I had was that it didn't last long on me at all. But for the moments I (and the person I was with) could smell, it's light, woodsy, well-balanced, has a few other notes in it - I swear I smelled basil.

    I sampled it this week. It's has a subtle, kind of velvety texture, like cedar fragrances often are. So, although very well made and pleasant, it could be quite predictable and generic if there weren't the fresh notes - mint, basil, Haitian vetiver. They give the fragrance an original touch. In fact this minty, fresh accord stays till the end just in the right proportion, leaving respectable space for the wood but still present enough.

    (I'm tempted to compare the wood base - just the wood! in this fragrance to He Wood without the watery violet, yet it smells much more refined and balanced, more likely to please everyone, while He Wood makes a much more direct and peculiar statement).

    I'm a big fan of the original Kenzo Pour Homme and i dare say KPH Boisée has absolutely nothing to do with it except the iconic shape of the bottle.

    Haven't smelled Bang yet, but if I had to compare it with Terre d'Hermes I would say TDH is much more niche and KPHB - more mainstream. Besides that, they don't have much in common. If I had to blindly buy a fragrance for a gift to a person I don't know so well, I'd think twice before buying TdH but i wouldn't hesitate for Kenzo.

    Hey, I recently bought the Kenzo by Kenzo, though i'm not particularly fond of the opening at first. To me it smells a bit like air freshener (clean linen) from a grocery store, but when it settles down I really do enjoy it.

    Since I also have Jungle, is this very similar to it or no?

  29. #29

    Default Re: New Fragrance: Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Boisée / Woody

    I think no. But I'm not the best to judge as with fragrances like Jungle nutmeg/peppery notes always dominate my nose for a long time, standing on my way to appreciate other aspects. I don't have it and I haven't explored it long enough but surely, Jungle is rich & spicy, this one is lot more subtle.
    I agree with opinions shared in different threads that Kenzo fragrances never share a common trend , they're all distinct smells but there's no particular Kenzo signature except that they're all very good .
    Talking vague comparisons, I'd point Declaration for the smooth woody part, Guerlain Homme for the mint part (just the mint)

    Tried this at Bloomie's a few days ago and will definitely go back to purchase it. The sample the SA gave me lasted all day on the back of my hand at work. Not a big "Kenzo" fan in the past but this one I like.
