A new hope
Kenzo always found interesting among the designer düftchen, especially because the but their own way in sachen DNA have gone and stood out with their creations from the measures. Kenzo Homme EDT a faithful companion because I still mix today now and then in my "rotation" pure However, the fire of passion at Kenzo the last few years on sparflamme run, forgettable boring and bland fragrances until now.
Homme Intense
is a pleasant warm woody-fresh combination with some fruit as I find
the balanced fig-wood note gives the fragrance to the base a slight tart experience. The fresh (Calypsone) note transforms in the mids and becomes slightly airy what the sweetness and the wood in the base acts strong & flattering.

Durability is for me in the 5-7h range, the projection & sillage are very strong at the beginning but lose after 3~ something in performance without really becoming a skin scent. Price Lesitung on Discounter is very good.

I would note the fragrance only how much you spray because it is stronger than you perceive it yourself. is clearly in the air. On fit the mann him not übersprüht

Never ending sweetness
Tested it on a blotter first: sweet, mildly complex, notes I could not identify.

Tested on the skin: very strong projection thirty minutes after application - a friend of mine I was having coffee with complained of "that strong smell of perfume" (he did not use the word "cologne").

A sweetness I could not relate to smells of nature (maybe fig, maybe pepper) nor aromatic references kept present on the skin after a morning shower, some 16 hours after asking for the test. Projection is mild but notorious.

No ozonic nor aquatic notes so far. As to the SA and as far as my experience is, the original and this are not related at all.

This is the case of a blend in which less is more; a 100 ml bottle will last a lifetime, more than two tiny sprays will suffocate the wearer and those around him, besides the fact longevity will be more than needed.

Rehabilitation for Kenzo?
There is reason for hope. I was a big fan of the Kenzo brand. I thought they used to make unusual, not everyday, but everyday mainstream fragrances: Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette- a classic, to this day. Jungle, Homme Boisee and especially Tokyo and Power. Unusual, different and yet clearly Kenzo.
And then came the descent, which began with Homme Sport cautiously (especially boring and irrelevant), continued with Homme Night (inharmonious and somehow intrusive), to then come to the Eau de Parfum lows of the two classics Homme and L'Eau, which threatened to let the brand sink into a seemingly never-ending whirlpool of sweet sticky irrelevance. Sure sign of that: the even worse Aqua Kenzo. I must confess that I had given up on Kenzo.
And now Kenzo Homme, Eau de Toilette intense- a new beginning, reason for hope?
Actually, yes, as I find. The new has nothing to do with the original fragrance. Kenzo also does not try to find the old DNA of Jungle and Tokyo again. But they finally bring out a multi-layered, well-made mainstreamer again, which has a decent development, a certain independence and a tremendous durability and projection, without coming across too clashing synthetic.
It starts with a powerfully peppered pinch of aquatic, before the fragrance develops into the slightly sweet (fig, I love fig!) and especially in the green-earthy (vetiver, patchouli). The sandalwood ensures that a certain basic freshness is always maintained. And that is the strength of the new Kenzo. He has a bit of many directions, but creates a main direction and an excellent performance.
Yes, there is a certain synthetic quality that cannot be denied. I would compare Kenzo's new one most closely to H24 from Hermes, although the scents are quite different. But it seems that a new mainstream trend is a slightly unisex, distinctly greened, slightly sweetened freshness that is also definitely synthetic, but above all, despite all the performance, comes across more unobtrusively and with more understatement than recent trends (1 Million Candy Bombs, Sauvage Synthetic Slings). I can live with that trend just fine.
And Kenzo makes a first, very big step in the direction of rehabilitation.

The better Ganymede and more affordable
I must say that I am a Kenzo fan since forever, I had about 3 bottles of Air Intense and totally loved it. Now with the sea of Homme, Water, etc .. all uninspiring and forgettable, I had no mood to try a new one.

The Homme 21 changed that, with the bamboo like bottle and the Quentin Bisch als Parfumeur. He also created the Le Male Le Parfum which I like and he is the master parfumeur für Marc Antoine Barrois´s Ganymede which I find very good and controversial.

The Kenzo here reviewed is not so much in the Kenzo freshie, uninspiring way .. but more like a Ganymede for the masses, with a decent price, performance and less schreechy.

The notes are summarized above so there is no need to go through them, for me this is a very good release for Kenzo and a good copy paste recipe from Ganymede. In a world where the perfumers keep their main composition and advertise it under various names for various companies, I do not mind that Quentin Bisch did this with Kenzo and Barrois.

I am not sure if it´s a full 110ml bottle worthy, but a 30ml to spray now and then it is totally worth it.

New freshness
Here you can not expect a spin-off of the old Kenzo pour Homme from the 90s or the successor Kenzo Homme, the Homme Eau de Toilette intense is an independent fragrance that starts fresh and slightly wüzig and after quite a while then gives subtle woody notes of itself. I have perceived even after several hours again and again on myself a beautiful and pleasant woody note.
The flacon looks great and is very good in the hand.
I find the new Kenzo succeeded and do not regret the Blindbuy.
I have no direct comparison, but I mean a certain similarity with the new Davidoff Cool Water perfume to recognize.

A very oceanic-like scent. There's caliber, some woods and a fruitiness to it. Reminiscent to the original but modernized. Good! 3/5
