Hot Mama Tip: Flower By Kenzo


When I was getting ready to be married lo these eight years or so ago, I had this idea that I would pick out a special fragrance for my wedding day. One that I could break out for special occasions and remember the night my husband and I became legally wed.

After a fairly exhaustive search, I decided to purchase Flower by Kenzo. It was beautiful. Soft, delicate, and a little bit powdery, I fell in love with it almost instantly. And I’m not the only one, as Chandler Burr, perfume blogger for the New York Times, thinks it’s practically perfect as well.

Problem was, my husband for some reason hated the scent. He likes “strong” perfumes, and Flower could never be categorized as strong. So, since he disliked it so much, I used up the bottle I had and haven’t bought it since. But, I’m definitely thinking of buying it again in the very near future, as I figure he isn’t around me 24/7, right?

    ALL Kenzo fragrances are highly original, exquisitely delicate, and gentle. Their Fleur D’Ete is one of my favorites. Too bad your husband is more of a Poison guy.

    What does your LITTLE guy think of it? You spend more time with him.

    I did the same thing–my sister used Diorissimo at her wedding, and now it always reminds her of that day. I chose Fracas for mine, after a long and exhaustive search (as I don’t like most perfumes)…and my husband didn’t like it. I didn’t have time to look for another perfume, so I wore my usual. I should have bought a bottle of Diorissimo!

    Diorissimo is da bomb. It was apparently one of Princess Diana’s favorites.
