After years of fragrance-buying, our countertop looks like the perfume counters at Saks. We try to contain the dozens (yes, dozens!) of bottles with trays and little dishes, hide away heavy scents in the spring and light scents in the fall, keep the less-frequented bottles at work. But the fact remains: we have too much perfume. Way too much.
And although we go through the rotations- fashion-forward smells like Coco Mademoiselle in the fall; deep woodsy scents like Tom Ford Black Orchid during holiday months; fresh scents like Chloé in the spring and suntan lotion in the summer, one bottle remains constant on our vanity. KenzoAmour.
The absolutely delicious scent is a perfect balance of light and pretty, spicy and woodsy, and works beautifully at any time of year. Inspired by a trip through Asia, the notes include Frangipani Blossoms from Bali or Borobudur, Cherry Blossoms from Japan, Tanakha Wood, Incense, Thai Rice Steam, Vanilla of La Réunion and White Tea from China. If that weren’t enough, the bottle was designed by Karim Rashid and is to die for.
We’re not tossing the rest of our collection. We’re just saying.
