Kenzo-World-Power-Box-Banner

Fashion house Kenzo presents a new perfume for women World Power. The new fragrance belongs to the Kenzo World Collection. It has been made to be an olfactory manifestation of creativity and composed without any floral notes. The new creation, Kenzo World Power, is following other editions of the Kenzo World Collection: Kenzo World from 2016, Kenzo World Intense from 2017, and Kenzo World Eau de Toilette from 2018. At the beginning of 2019, Kenzo World presented a limited collection of the first three editions of the Kenzo World Fantasy Collection in unchanged compositions.

An oriental perfume that dares to free itself from floral codes for a femininity full of strength and authenticity.

Kenzo.

This new edition perfume is infused with a freshly salty/sweet aroma to make it more lingering and more summery. The composition of a strong character invites us to write our own rules, with a focus on clear expression, to show who we really are. Our power, to show it to the world.

Kenzo World Power is giving specific contrasts: bitterish, sweet, and gourmand. In the opening, cypress plays a major role; it is borrowed from a masculine olfactory wardrobe, giving this female composition an aromatic and spontaneous opening. In the core of the composition are salt crystals that form special nuances toward the gourmandish and with almondy tonka beans in the base, to make it a daring, fresh and light fragrance to be worn during the day.

Kenzo World Power preserves the same bottle shape as the previous editions, this time with a body of transparent glass and sunny and bright yellow liquid inside. It was created as an ode to diversity and freedom.

Kenzo World Power is available as 30, 50 and 75ml Eau de Parfum.

Kilian’s classic Love, Don’t Be Shy gets interpreted in the new limited edition for 2019 with Rose & Oud. The edition is the first of the new Special Blends series that highlights the incredibly rich and varied aspects of oud oil.

Love By Kilian Don’t Be Shy Rose and Oud gets its name inspired by love and of the exquisite composition of expensive oud oils. Created by the famous perfumer Calice Becker, the new edition perfume is a powerful, and tantalizing fragrance made of Bulgarian roses, oud, and agarwood. 

Love-By-Kilian-Don’t-Be-Shy-Rose-and-Oud-Perfume-

Called the ‘Wood of Gods’, oud is formed in the truns of Agar trees where black resin produces a captivating fragrant oil. Like a fine liquor, each year this Agar tree produces a vintage that is then blended to perfection by Kilian Hennessy.

Love, Don’t Be Shy Rose and Oud celebrates the floral facet of the original fragrance with the warm, beautiful and iconic Bulgarian Rose. It also unveils a new facet through an intoxicating Oud from Southern Asia. Two precious oils, so celebrated in perfumery for centuries, make the core marshmallow delicacy into a deeper dare to love like its home.

As it is engraved on the bottle, this is a Special Blend for 2019. The black lacquered flacon is decorated with a gold plate with handmade carvings of precious ingredients. Oud and gold are synonymous with their value and rarity. The flacon comes in a black lacquered wooden box with a golden key.

Love By Kilian Don’t Be Shy Rose and Oud is available as 50ml Eau de Parfum.

 

 

 

 

Kokain by the German rock band Rammstein

Rammstein-Till-Lindemann-GIF.gif

For decades, German rock band Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann has been singing about all the places he’d like to put his penis. The thing is, unless his fans spoke fluent German, his innuendos were often lost in translation.

Then in 2015 he was taking pity to the poor, unfortunate souls who have only a basic understanding of a decent Bück Dich, which is German for ‘bend over’,- where he was humping Rammstein’s keyboardist, Flake. On Skills in Pills – the debut LP by his side project Lindemann – the vocalist’s newfound interest in English had enabled more people than ever to wallow in the filthiness of his mind. Song titles on the record include ‘Golden Shower’, ‘Ladyboy’, ‘Fat’ and the first single of the album, ‘Praise Abort’.

Rammstein-Logo-GIF2.gif

So when the German rockband launches their first fragrance, it was no suprise, that they chose a ‘Rocky’ name: Kokain. The fragrance is named after Rammstein’s song Kokain from ‘Das Modell’.

Created by Alexandre Illan, who is currently working at Symrise and who developed the fragrance, introduced his work as ‘warm and very addictive’. Kokain is a woody unisex fragrance that starts with fruity notes and dries down into a potent leather scent with a hint of iris. It is suggested as truly ‘Rammstein-esque’.

Rammstein-Kokain-EDT.jpgIts powdery fruity opening represents addictive drugs, (an olfactory representation of deadly drugs have not once appeared in fragrances), the top note leading to a strong heart of gasoline and patchouli. The fragrance further develops into a smoky woody leather base, illustrating ‘the smell of fire in the substructure’. 100% Rammstein.

Rammstein Kokain is available in drugstores and online (to be shipped from May 31st) as 50 and 100ml Eau de Toilette (€19.99 / €29.99)
