The visionary of Kenzo Parfums, Kenzo Takada, was born in Himeji, Japan. In 1965, he was the first Japanese fashion designer to descend upon Paris and opened his first boutique there in 1970. With a certain 'joie de vivre,' Kenzo's designs celebrated nature, diverse cultures and colors. With this same spirit and a global presence, Kenzo Parfums was established in 1988 with the launch of KENZO, CA SENT BEAU. A feminine, floral scent with peach and ylang-ylang, CA SENT BEAU was inspired by the Japanese art of floral creations and met with immediate success. It has been followed by many other original creations, each introducing a new perspective to the world of selective perfumery.
In 2000, Kenzo launced FLOWERBYKENZO, the first fragrance devoted to the poppy, a flower with no scent. This powdery, floral fragrance blends rose, vanilla and violet and has become a timeless, classic scent. The FLOWERBYKENZO bottle is transparent and features a single red poppy blossoming in the city, representing the vital link between people and nature.
With the worldwide success of FLOWERBYKENZO, Kenzo introduced two other renditions. In 2003, FLOWERBYKENZO LE PARFUM was created, mixing a soft floral oriental with an intensified blend of the original scent. In 2005, FLOWERBYKENZO ORIENTAL presented a spicier, more sensual rendition with overtones of rare Japanese incense.
SUMMERBYKENZO marked the summer of 2005. This fresh fragrance blends ivy, citrus, mimosa, violet and almond milk to perfectly capture the scent of sun-kissed skin.
In fall 2006, the brand introduced KENZOAMOUR, a new fragrance for women inspired by the vibrant colors and aromas of Asia and the story of a couple's slow and sensuous journey of love. A woody, musky, floral scent, KENZOAMOUR is reminiscent of travels through Asia with a blend of Indonesian frangipani blossom, Japanese cherry blossom, thanaka wood from Burma, vanilla of the island of la Réunion and Chinese white tea.
