Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Intense (110ml, £70)
Concocted by perfumer Quentin Bisch, the captivating aquatic scent is as fresh as a sea breeze, with a sustainable ethos at its core.
Composed of naturally-derived alcohol and housed in a beautiful bamboo-shaped bottle composed of 10 per cent recycled glass, pink pepper and marine Calypsone make up the scent’s energising top notes, unfolding into a sensual heart of Vetiver and a woody fig tree accord. Rich sandalwood, elevated by spiced Akigalawood, rounds off the creamy base, evoking a strong echo of the ocean.
Embodied by ecological designer and educator Orin Hardy, the new face of Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Intense, the fragrance launch emphasises Kenzo Parfums’ support for Bamboo-U, a unique design initiative spearheaded by Hardy that trains a new generation of designers, architects and engineers to responsibly connect with nature through an intensive 11-day course.
To support the important work carried out by Bamboo-U, Kenzo Parfums has launched a brand-new scholarship, inviting 10 students to join Hardy in Bali for 11 days to learn all about planting and harvesting bamboo, preservation treatment, processing, designing & building.
The first partnership of its kind, applications must be received on or before Bamboo U’s deadline of July 17. Further information can be found by visiting the Bamboo-U website.
