    Default Kenzo Power or Kenzo Power Cologne?

    Which one would you guys choose?

    I'm caught between the 2, I've personally never tried the cologne version but I have smelled the original Power, and it smelled really really good to me and I was considering the purchase. Until I stumbled across a couple of old posts on basenotes on the Cologne version.

    Opinions through the poll please! Thanks!

    Power! I quite like that a lot actually, but I wasn't keen on the cologne on the two occasions I tried it.

    Cologne, it is less feminine.

    ^Power is not feminine in any way. It is overtly masculine and sensual.

    If you've tried and like Kenzo Power, then buy it. Don't make this decision needlessly difficult.

    Power. Floral, and yet masculine.

    I was thinking about the impression of "Masculinity" in this fragrance, when I first tried it on my skin, I thought it was great, it didn't strike me as feminine or having that of an "Old lady" at all. Till I read the reviews online with people claiming it had very feminine qualities, probably because it is floral?

    aye.

    Who cares what people think...its versatile, slightly on the sweet side, with decent longevity. I tend to use it more in the summer time, just 'cuz my fall/winter wardrobe is "kind of" stacked (winter lasts 6 months in Canada).

    I think I can compare the fragrance to Prada Amber Pour Homme, but this one is sweeter and slightly heavier and not soapy, but it does give me that Prada vibe

    I have never tried the cologne, but from what I've read it seems to be quite different from the EDT. I'd stick to the latter.

    Kenzo Power smells like Platinum Egoiste IMO

    No sorry, correction, I'm thinking of their last fragrance for men, the name of which I forget.

    Indeed it is - a flanker that betters the original by some distance IMHO.

    The cologne is dominated by its spice notes, where as the EDT (Fraiche) is more floral and citrusy ...

    I didn't like Power, but Kenzo's Amour EdP is fabulous stuff !

    Haven't tried the Cologne.

    I like the regular a lot, very floral and clean. Bought the cologne blind, but it didnt arrived yet

    I love the EDT -- it's bright, fresh, lasts 6+ hours on my skin, and can be worn even in the cold seasons.

    I'm not a fan of the ginger/cardamom note in the cologne version.

    Yep - the original is not worth owning IMO. Quite a major disappointment......
