    Default Really enjoying Kenzo Power this summer

    This beautiful creation from Olivier polge has become a pleasure to wear this summer.
    How a watery floral can smell so beautiful and masculine at the same time is not an easy thing to accomplish.
    One of the best from Kenzo so perfect for the summer reminds me of those lily pads found in a pond yet for a man!
    Too bad it wasn't a success.
    I guess the perfume houses just don't know how to back a fragrance on the market these days.
    It's discontinued but still on their website for some reason.
    And the sake bottle is a work of art

    It was a solid scent. As a big fan of Jaipur pour Homme, it was no surprise that I liked Power when I first smelled it.

    Good stuff! Smells a bit cold.
    Love the bottle!

    I like it quite a bit also. If you like Kenzo Power, I suggest trying Kenzo Power Cologne also.

    As do I.

    I looked for this a few years ago and could not find it anyway (no eBay).

    Ah. I didn't realize it was no where to be found anymore. Very unfortunate. Both very good scents.

    I wear it now and again, still like it but it never gives me the pleasure the very first wear did.
    More of a unisex than a masculine scent for me, reminiscent of Dior Homme in some way, or maybe it's just reminiscent of Olivier Polge.

    It was a decent scent as I recalled although I would prefer other choices over it.

    The cologne is lighter and fresher adding a bit more citrus and floral without losing the goodness of the original. Just my experience

    Agree. They are similar, but there are these significant differences - it's not just a difference in strength which might be inferred from the name.

    Thanks! Just want to add that Kenzo homme night is also fantastic. Wonderful tropical smell with good projection and longevity great alternative to the much more expensive virgin island water (which I also love)
