KENZO Homme Eau de Toilette Intense Review

KENZO Homme Eau de Toilette Intense Spray is just like breathing in a fresh, salty sea breeze that’s instantly energising. But this sea air lingers as a complex scent settles on the skin, leaving an earthy woody trail that still feels light and refreshing. Find out why I find this scent unexpected and inviting…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

The natural scent of KENZO Homme Eau de Toilette Intense rolls like waves gently landing on your skin. The scent opens with calypsone, giving it the signature salty sea breeze feel that keeps on giving. This pairs perfectly with the other top note of pink peppercorn for a hint of spicy warmth. A creamy layer of fig wood and vetiver join at the fragrance’s heart for an earthy green element, enhanced by the opening salted spice. A base of sandalwood and akigala wood completes the natural seaside scent, which I can only describe as a rolling beach entering the forest edges. But my favourite part has to be that the scent remains fresh and cool amongst the warm woods, adding body and depth.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Inspired by sustainability and the environment, Homme Eau de Toilette celebrates nature by using 95.6% natural origin ingredients. The scent is inspired by nature’s poetry, from bamboo to the ocean; this fragrance transports you to the moment the sun warms your salty skin.


You Will Love This If…

KENZO Homme EDT reminds me of the wonders nature has to offer. It’s the rarity where the beach meets the forest floor on a sunny day.


Is KENZO Homme Eau de Toilette Intense Unisex?

The subtle spice and overdose of woods have a traditionally masculine cologne feel. However, anyone who enjoys natural aromas will enjoy the blend of cool nuances alongside warm woods.


What’s The Longevity Like?

For an Eau de Toilette, this fragrance has good lasting power lingering for 6 hours on the skin. The projection isn’t huge, but the close-to-skin scent is an indulgent treat for you and those closest to enjoy for hours.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

The blue bamboo bottle is striking, signifying the celebration of nature within. The bottle is made from 10% recycled glass, and the cap is formed with 34% less plastic than the original lids.
