This perfume haunts me. I don't love it, I get sick of it after a few wearings, but as soon as my sample is depleted I am back at Nordie's filling another little plastic spritzer because I can't be without it.
It's almond-powdery-woody, and has a sharpish cedar twang that makes we want to cluck my tongue against the roof of my mouth. It smells like nothing in nature; the almond and the wood seem almost like anime cartoons of themselves. I find the first few seconds very, very similar to PotL Luctor et Emergo -- but PotL evolves into a cherry incense, Flower Le Parfum hangs there like Sailor Moon's freshly planed dressing table for hours. Addictive and tiresome in equal measures.

This is a familiar scent to me; not because I've tried it before but it reminds me being a child and the scent I'd be enveloped in when hugged by some beloved women in my life. Its the smell of cold cream and scented soap plus perfume and fragranced lipstick, combined. Clean and powdery, a haze of feminine scent. I don't own this, have only sampled it but if it were not cost prohibitive I would buy it.

I always get compliments when I wear this perfume. Girls will always ask me what I'm wearing, and guys will comment on how nice I smell. It's fail-proof because it's not too overpowering, will never give you a headache, and is a crowd pleaser. If I've had a bad day, I like spraying some of this on my pillow and falling asleep to this scent. It's heavenly.

I liked this fragrance when I got it as a sample. It's very powdery* on me; I really don't smell much of any kind of floral (and considering that the fragrance's "inspiration flower", the poppy, also has no scent, I guess that's....appropriate?). It's sweet without smelling like cotton candy, and it's a nicely unobtrusive scent. If someone bought me a bottle, I'd wear it. However, I don't think I'd pay $70 for a bottle that smells very much like your average baby powder from the drugstore. It lasted a few hours, and then faded away.
*Flame-worthy confession: I kinda think this is basically a classier version of Love's Baby Soft.

I LOOOOVE this perfume! I must say though it has been a while since i have bought it because i do like to chop and change trying new smells etc!
However this is one of the very few perfumes i ever come back to! It has a gorgeous unique smell about it, and is one of the only perfumes i can actually smell on myself without spraying on masses of amounts! I reccomend anyone to try it!

Loooooove this perfume! It's so soft and warm. Not overpowering but you definitely smell it. It's most definitely a "signature" perfume. Very different and unexpected. My body changes fragrances usually to the point that most dissapear off my skin. This actually smells better and better the longer you leave it on. Love it!
UPDATE. By afternoon the perfume dissapears on me. A waste of $70 i'd say. I like the smell but it's not lasting and too expensive. And definitely not enough product for the money.

I have had both Kenzo Flower (regular, in the sheer bottle w/ lovely poppy flower decoration) and this one, in the vibrant red bottle.
I lik them both, but Le Parfum (created in 2003) is rounder, deeper and more sophisticated than its predecessor (born in 2000).
Kenzo Flower Le Parfum is a powdery iris/violet/ vanilla/amber mix. So, cuddly, elegant, warm, soft...reminds me of my childhood.
You get this huge was of baby poder like (iris and violet). The base is a soft, almost gourmand vanilla musk accord, but the amber makes is so cozy and wintry.
Definetely a winter fragrance to me, evokes a soft warm blanket.
It's easy to wear, does not need to much thinking or exotic occasions to be worn. A little treasure!
Notes as per Osmoz:
top notes May blossom, black currant
heart note Parma violet, Bulgarian rose, almond
base note Opopanax resin, white musk, French vanilla, amber

I received this sample from Sephora, and it was not at all what I was expecting. It is a total rip off of Oscar de la Renta. Oscar de la Renta was the first perfume that I ever purchased and it is l♥ve! This perfume smells almost identical, but it is overpowering and definitely not as good. I would not purchase this product.

I really really don't like it, it's smells like regular baby powder that I have at home, I put parfum on one hand and baby powder on other how come hey smell exactly the same??? I am going to take in back I paid 100$ for baby powder this is too much for Flower by Kenzo, what kind of flower?? babypowder???

I desperately wanted to like Kenzo Flower Le Parfum because I absolutely adore the bottle. Unfortunately, this fragrance did not go well with my chemistry at all. I didn't smell any flowers. The only thing I did smell was diper. This is pure baby powder on me from first spray to dry down. And, I don't like baby powder so for that reason will not be purchasing a full bottle of this.

I received this as a sample from Sephora. Had I sampled it in a store, I'd likely have bought it on the spot....then immediately returned it after the drydown. It opens w/ a stunning, mysterious (to me, anyway) floral note. I'm not even a big floral fan, but this could have converted me! Within 10 minutes, however, it turned into nothing more than...baby powder. Like straight out of the big pink and white bottle, Johnson's Baby Powder. Huge let down for me, but I've never liked powdery scents.

I have this in gel version. I really like this perfume. It is powdery at first then settles into semi-sweet, musky and vanilla afternotes. It also has a lasting power. Simple and sexy.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I got a sample of this. At first I liked this because of it's great lasting power, but all it smells like is baby powder. And even worse sometimes it smells like cat urine mixed with baby powder. I wouldn't buy this.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I though I would be crazy head over heels in love with this because it contains all of my favorite notes, but I'm afraid it's a scrubber. It's sharp and plasticy, and the drydown is sickeningly sweet (and I like sweet!). I'll pass.

As noted by everyone, it lasts forever. Literally forever.The listed notes are Bulgarian rose, violet, vanilla, musk, Sichuan pepper, and Chinese incense, but all I get after a short while is sweet vanilla musk. Ultimately, the dry down is a pretty vanilla. So, obviously not for vanilla haters. I prefer the smokiness of Vaniglia del Madagascar, personally. This is nice, but mostly just a sweet vanilla. Still, the longevity and blending get good marks.

This is a very powdery floral (right now all I'm getting from sniffing my wrists is that powder smell!) The lasting power is pretty good (going on 5 hours), but I prefer more sparkling/lighter florals.

I liked flower by Kenzo a lot. It has a very comforting smell, very heart warming and cozy. Definetely not sexy and thus not for nightime. In fact my husband doesn't like it any time of the day or night, but since he doesn't like most perfumes I tend to ignore him. Le parfum has great lasting power -even simple Flower is long lasting for me at least- and a nice, warm powdery smell that you love to spray on yourself during winter time. Found it too cozy and warm for spring/summer though.
I already bought it twice, so there is definetely the chance that I will buy it again in the future. Right now though I feel the need to explore more womanly perfumes (I am thinking between Coco and Samsara or Opium). I think that Flower is not a parfum for mature, strong women. As I grow older and more confident I don't need that "cozy", "hug me" feeling from a parfum that much but something more confident, more womanly than just feminine.

This perfume is the epitome of a what I think a true lady would smell like! Its sweet, soft, feminine....and the smell lasts all day! I have gotten many compliments from the men folk when I wear it. I originally got it as a sample from Sephora then I went and ordered the bottle!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I like the smell but it is a bit overwhelming... it tends to give my husband a headache... it is very strong. I wish it wasn't because I like the warm, flowery, powdery smell.
