    are there two versions a homme boisée and homme boisée edt? i find references to two different versions (the later therefore a edp) with a slight different composition? is that so and if yes has anyone tried the other one (since i think the edt is a bit weak)?

    Perfumer: Olivier Polge.
    Notes of mint, basil, black pepper, vetiver, rosemary, Atlas cedar and white musk.

    Kenzo + Polge = Success.
    Kenzo made it again!. "Kenzo pour homme boisee" is an aromatic/spicy and soft, woody gorgeous scent.
    This new fragrance is supposed to be a flanker to the 1991′s "KenzoHomme"
    They have nothing at all in common (the only real similarity being the shape of the bottle and a salty trail). That doesn't mean that it will be a big dissapointment for all the original "KenzoHomme" lovers like me, as long as they don't expect something as unique as the 1991's original.


    It starts fresh and slightly spicy.
    There is a lively explosion of a salty refined vetiver, sexy mint and a background of spicy basil. The herbal side of mint and basil is fresh and brilliantly light yet intens. Even though, it never becomes overpowering.
    Being honest, at this stage, I was afraid, as the opening really blew my mind and I was scared, presuming that it could react as "Tokyo", when, after the top notes, the whole perfume lost all the character.
    This is not happening in "Kenzo Boisée": the mint accompained by the basil and glorious vetiver shows their presence all the way through, so the perfume becomes rather linear but deliciously addictive.

    During the heart and the drydown, the linear formula changes a little with the soft, airy, light cedar accord. Here, the wood seems almost secondary, where the previous notes from earlier reign above all.
    So this is not a deep woody perfume as it has been advertised (Thank God).
    If you are looking for a real, light woody one, better forget this one and go for CDG "Wonderwood".


    "Kenzo pour Homme boisée" is a magnificent, well put together fragrance.
    Yes, it is salty but not as the original one, and also it is spicy and woody but nothing like "Jungle Homme".
    It has the perfect balanced amount of very carefully (and intelligently) chosen ingredients By Polge.
    Some people will compare it with the original and it will probably receive bad reviews without justice because they may find it a little mainstream compared to any other of the Kenzo's fragrance line.
    I have to agree, but also, I'm happy to say that this new launch will have success in terms of being the best mainstream launch of this year for two simple reasons:

    1. Polge always made great perfumes and this one is not an exception.

    2. It leads us eventually to the woodiness side that everyone expects, making the scented trip really memorable.

    "Boiséé" is not as loud as "KenzoHomme" and not as quiet as "Power". It has its own place in the middle, having a distinctive projection and a really good lasting power.

    Smelled it today on my skin,

    Kenzo Power - Soft flowers
    Kenzo Boisée - Crushed herbs and woods

    Very different from Kenzo Power, which has softer flower notes. Boisée is woody, spicy and fresh to me, you can smell the rosemary, cedar and vetiver very well-blended into the fragrance itself. Very very nice outdoor fragrance, especially if one is going out to the forest for an exploration.

    On top of this aromatic blend, I smell some crushed raw basil, I don't mean just the basil leaves, rather the entire plant, imagine the entire basil plant blended into the fragrance, it has the familiar basil note from the leaves, however with an added darkness from the stem and the wood.

    I do not smell the pepper, however I suspect that it is probably working in the background to enhance the woody notes and the spice. I can imagine the aroma of these woods and herbs rising like incense, not too sweet, rather very raw, earthy, jungle-like. Crushed herbs and woods.

    I am starting to warm up to the Kenzo house. These are great frags for whenever your forced into those moments of needing "not to offend" anyone with your scent. As of current, I like Jungle PH the best... if this hits Sephora I'll be sure to get a sample from the SA.

    For me it's a mix of Burberry The Beat for men (also done by O. Polge) and Declaration. It is more green than woody, I can describe this as fresh spicy, something like herbs with a pepper. It is very close to The Beat, so if you like it, you will like this as well. Sillage is average, longevity is good.

    I found it to be a very, very light woody nothing of a fragrance. But that does not surprise me since it is Kenzo. It is nothing I am interested in.

    Considering I'm not too crazy about pure wood fragrances (no matter how light), I'm not sure I'll be crazy on this one. I'll try it regardless though.

    I tried it first time and couldn't help but smile. Then bough Kenzo by Kenzo which I appreciate but didn't blew my mind as I expected. Tried Boise again today and something about it just made me smile again. Definitely a purchase.

    What is it called on FragranceNet / StrawberryNet? Can't find em!

    Tried it today on paper, and I got incredibly minty woods. And by incredibly minty, I mean like a Live Jazz type of mint. Crushed mint leaves or whatever. To be honest it kind of overpowers the rest of the fragrance; I was hoping for a nice heavy woody scent with a slight zing. Need to test it on skin.

    Smeghead - I sprayed it on paper first, then on skin. The smell comes out different. The scent didn't seem to change for me until after 10 minutes or so when it starts to blend with the skin's natural oil.

    I bought a small bottle the day it was released for sale. Now several months later it remains one of my favorite designer frags. My towel closet gets 10-15 sprays of it every time it is reloaded with clean towels because the rosemary/pepper/mint are a great lift at 4:30 in the morning during the work week. As we have solid no fragrance policy at work, it's a way to get a great fragrance lift in the morning. And some non-work day early mornings I'll use this.

    It's great.

    Now that I know O. Polge was also responsible for The Beat For Men (thanks, AntonPan!), he's behind almost a full house of my favorite fragrances. I will likely be getting this - although I would prefer to sniff it first....

    Kenzo Woody left me cold. It does the minimum that a fragrance should do - smell good. But it doesn`t seem linked to the original fragrance. For a fragrance that seems to evoke a return to nature, it`s a quite synthetic vetiver woody fragrance. The best part is the drydown, which seems to use a kind of vetiver chemical which retains a leafy, woody, green smell, without the smoky part. But the opening is horrible. It seems instable, sometimes smelling realy nasty, like a cheap hand liquid soap. It also bothers me the smell of nutmeg, that sometimes is evident, sometimes is not. It doesn`t seem to fit the fragrance, it`s a unsuccessful attempt of creating a olfactive signature around this note - starting with kenzo jungle and continuing in kenzo tokyo.
    In general i like Kenzo fragrances, they seem above the overall massmarket fragrances. But this one didn`t captivated me. It could have been worse, but i imagine it could have been better too. The second weasket fragrance of 2010 from me, only behind Chanel Bleu, which was the king of mediocrity in 2010 for me.
