It’s Kenzo Eau de Fleur de The Tea Time

Published in: Fragrance, Product Reviews

Gals, do ya remember Bath & Body Works’ awesomely clean Rainkissed Leaves (about $10) scent from last summer? If you went ga-ga over it like I did, then catch a whiff of Kenzo’s new Eau de Fleur de The Tea ($55).

It’s one of three Kenzo Eau de Fleur fragrances, the other two being Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk and Eau de Fleur de Magnolia. All three are special edition scents and go for $55 each (1.7oz bottles).

Eau de Fleur de The Tea has a crushed-leaves-in-the-rain vibe that reminds me of B&BW’s Rainkissed Leaves but also carries notes of green tea and musk (like the scent of clean skin). It doesn’t smell overwhelmingly like tea (seriously, who wants to walk around smelling like a tea bag?), which has been a beef I’ve had with other green tea scents I’ve tried in the past, but it does smell just enough like green tea to be appealing.

“A white cowbell with a heart of gold. Sheltered under its leaves, the tea flower diffuses a floral concoction with notes of green tea and a hint of musk. Kenzo flower waters are picked from Japanese trees. Each eau de toilette in the collection evokes a delicate trail of tree blossom. Three new fragrances made of natural, clear and streamlined floral notes. Every year, Kenzo will enrich this collection by picking another flower.”

All week long I’ve been layering it on top of Rainkissed Leaves Body Wash and Lotion. The two scents complement each other nicely.

I think I’m ready to set aside my winter fragrances for a while.

Speaking of spring, I’ve been spending waaay too much time surfing the web for cute spring outfits. Have you checked out J. Crew lately? Spring is in the air. :)

I think I might’ve missed the memo about pegged pants coming back in style, LOL!

    Hi Catherine,

    Oh! Welcome to my world! Procrastination is my friend and enemy, LOL!

    When is your project due?

  4. Karen says:

    Hi Eru,

    It’s a lovely scent. Do you have a favorite green tea fragrance?

  5. Misti says:

    That fragrance sounds *Divine*. I love Kenzo. :)

    I think the pegging of the jeans is being brought back by Katie Holmes/Cruise. She was photographed wearing her jeans that way a few months ago.

    i don’t think i’ve ever smelt any tea scents, but since u mentioned u liked the clean scent of rainkissed leaves….i wanted to know if you tried dancing waters by B&BW? i love it! clean, crisp scent!

    The pegging of the jeans has unfortunately been going on for a bit now. Especially here in Sweden they’re really good at it. Unfortunately I don’t have the build to peg them up (and I think it’s ridiculous anyways… lol)

      Hi Karen B.,

      Sigh, I must be getting older because I keep seeing stuff that was popular when I was younger come back in style. The last time I pegged my pants was in 1990. YIKES!

  8. Karen B says:

    I never did so yet, thank god!
