Kenzo Flower Tag Review

Kenzo's latest fragrance, Flower Tag, is inspired by the free-spirited genius of graffiti artists. A follow up to 2000's Kenzo Flower, this one has more fresh, youthful energy. The slender red bottle conveys the new urban poppy with words Flower Flower Flower tagged on the bottle. The packaging is similar to previous Kenzo fragrances, but this one is a little more "fun" with the tagging on the sides. (Get it, Flower Tag?) I love how every Kenzo bottle reminds me of a stem of a flower tilting to the side. Even when the perfume is gone, I keep these bottles as keepsakes or decorations.

Top Fruity Notes: Rhubarb, Blackcurrant and Mandarin
Middle Floral Notes: Peony, Lily of the Valley and Jasmine
Base Notes: Tea Note, Vanilla and Musk

So what are my thoughts?

The smell when first sprayed is a bit flowery and overpowering, I smell a mix of peony, lily of the valley and tea. As the scent starts to die down on my skin I get a mix of mandarin, jasmin and vanilla. (Lots of vanilla!) I always say some scents are for older people and some are meant for younger teenagers. This one is perfect for someone my age. (We will say twenties and thirties) It has the fresh classic smell that Kenzo is so known for with a bit more feminine flower and citrus notes.

The Kenzo Flower Tag has a stronger flower smell then the popular (and my absolute favorite) L'eau Par Kenzo Wild and reminds me of more of a nicer fresher, bolder updated "Flower By Kenzo"

Overall the bottle is fun and decorative, the scent is playful, chic and flirty, and I'm loving the smell! It's sexy, exciting and reminds me of something a supermodel would be wearing while walking down the catwalk. I know I know I have weird thoughts when I spray a bottle of perfume.

Kenzo FLOWER TAG is available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s in July and in September will be available at Nordstrom, Macy’s, Sephora and is online today.
