    I am absolutelly in love with Kenzo's fragrances, especially all of the “leaf bottles”. I adore Parfum D'Ete which reminds me of my backyard full of trees with green, dewy leaves on a rainy day…

    Summer which is also in a leaf shaped bottle, is also one of my favorites, it reminds me of a bright, sunny, breezy day – it's delicate, beautiful scent makes You want to wake up and go enjoy Your day on a nice beach… I love the drydown with a roasted almond/milky note. Kenzo de Kenzo, a pebble shaped bottle, with leaves and a flower on top, is another fragrance beloved by me. The most beautiful top note of mandarine and orange blossom I've ever smelled. Then it dries down into a perfume that reminds me of an exotic, japanese garden, full of oriental trees with some spicy but delicate florals. The powdery/woodsy note makes it extremelly sexy. As You can see I am a kenzo lover, I recommend their fragrances a lot – As for Anna Sui I like her scents, they are a lot less complicated than kenzo but still nice, they don't bother me too much. Still, though, the best ones are by KENZO! Inspired by REAL nature!

    I didn’t care much for Summer – there was a note that reminded me of butter, and I was slightly disgusted at the concept of wearing butter, bleah. Just goes to show that you can’t rely on listed notes, because I thought this one would be up my alley. It wasn’t.

    I found the new version of Parfum d’Ete rather thin, but I think it might be good for layering if one wants sheer greens/light florals highlighted in another scent. The older version is very lovely, far more floral and therefore more to my taste.
