    Default Kenzo L'Eau Indigo - Terrible!!

    Hello,

    First of all, I need to say I love Kenzo PH and the original L'Eau. Blind bought Indigo and received it yesterday. Oh my gosh, what a terrible, terrible smell! I sprayed it on my arm, got a good sniff and immediately thought: this was a mistake. What is that opening note? Is that ginger? I am a newbie to fragrances, so I still canīt discern individual notes, my nose is not trained for that yet. I donīt know, but for me it is an "indigo" or purple note, dark, acrid, sweety-sour, not in pleasing way. Never in my life I felt the urge to wash a scent off so bad as I did last night. It was nauseating, to the point of making me ill and giving me a headache.

    Is this normal? I mean, so many people appear to like it, and I wonder if there was any problem with my bottle. The smell for me is absolutely heavy, bad and unbearable, not pleasing, not fresh, nothing I was expecting by reading reviews and opinions. Can anyone confirm this is how L'Eau Indigo is supposed to be?

    Thanks!

    Indigo is very simillar to Cartier Declaration , going that roud very safely . He does not have any similarities with L'eau or Kenzo PH , they are different grups, different stile , so your love for two in the past does not project very well in future frag of Kenzo house and that is normal. Personaly i found this frag OK, nothing great, nothing bad, but easy answer for evry question u made is , you are new in frag world , don't buy them before u try them.

    This frag certainly is not that bad as u say, nether is unwerable , but u don't like something in this one, and that is it.
    Swap it, go for something other and that is solution fo now.

    Yeah, i understand you, it just hit me as really strange that it can smell so intense and "weird", and yet no opinions or reviews emphasize this particular characteristic. Thatīs why I thought I could even have a "bad juice" bottle. Oh well, as you said: swap and go for something else is the solution.

    It can be one of the answers ( bad juice ) but this realy rarely happens ... My guess is your intolerance for this kind of frag.
    I can easily say that u don't like eather coriander eather gigner...

    I suspect itīs the ginger. Will have to do some more tests. Too bad where I live there is not a lot of places for me to sample fragrances, so sometimes I have to blind buy. Guess we all have some blind buy regrets...

    We all had, and we all will have blind buy regrets.... I would say that is the miracle of blind buy, my start in parfume world was full of bad choices.... finaly my taste was bild on those bad choices ( and good too ) , so Just Do It ( leave regrets behind ) .

    I do not think Indigo is a bad fragrance. I just think it's a bit generic

    It seemed nice to me, although has not good lasting power and is somehow generic.
    Liked it...
