Light and slightly green, Parfum D’Ete doesn’t have top notes, but shines with all of its components at once, while the note of jasmine lends its sensual accord to this composition, along with freshly-picked cyclamen, gorgeous hyacinth and sweet peach blossom. The green accord is composed of leafy greens, green herb juice, lily-of-the-valley and lotus. It was created in 1992. Kenzo Parfum D'Ete was launched in 2002. The nose behind this fragrance is Antoine Lie.

It's very watery powdery on me.I am a teen. Once I wore it to school,no one detects that I am wearing the parfum.
But its has a fresh green smell on me..
The bottle..I don't like the bottle..
I'll give a 6/10..

Found a full bottle sans box at an Antique and Collectible show. The sticker said $50 but the seller quickly agreed when I offered $15. I've been enjoying this and comparing it to Diorissimo (I know, sacrilegious, right). For tenacity, Diorissimo wins - very green and strong LOTV. Kenzo is soft, faded LOTV - very pleasant. It is only when my nose meets my wrist that I smell a hint of jasmine and the promise of sandalwood. It feels refreshing and clean when I spray this on. Perfect for spring but too light on sunny-crisp-fall days. Kenzo would not offend with two sprays but it fades fast without much fume trail. It seems to last longer and leaves a trail when sprayed on my hair. Such a pretty leaf-shaped bottle.

One spray on me:
Sillage: about a foot for first 30 minutes, soft whisper for the next two hours
Longevity: about an hour then nose-to-wrist for next three
Rating: 3/5

I have both bottles that say Parfum d'ete, but they couldn't be more different!!!!

I swear they have nothing in common. And i don't mean the ingredients, but the overall smell. Why would a company confuse consumers like this??? Did they run out of names..?!?

It's a green scent but not that sort of overwhelming, almost aldehyde sharp green you get in some scents. The lily of the valley is well made and just a hint sweet, like it is if you're smelling the flower in nature. I like this sweet quality -- a lot of LOTV scents ignore it in favor of just green. The hyacinth and jasmine are well done as well. Only real complaint is that it doesn't last long. Very effervescent scent, light and bubbly.

It seems that I missed my chance to try the original Kenzo Parfum d'Eté, as my mini obviously contains the reformulated post-LVMH acquisition juice.

Abstract floral green with impressive tenacity and projection--or not, since that all comes along with the abstraction in this sort of composition.

There is a brightness to Parfum d'Eté, which imparts a decidedly SSRI quality to the experience. I was going to say that this creation may have been the first SSRI fragrance--singing with optimism but superficially so--except that this is the reformulation. What appears to have happened is that the formula was tweaked to conform with this new perfume market phenomenon: a fragrance which is the olfactory equivalent of pill-produced "happiness".

That's okay, of course. If you have to spend the day in a cubicle slaving away for some corporate master, why not wear this kind of juice? Everyone around you will aver that you smell clean.

A pretty good substitute for Eau d'Eden. Not as sharp and the musk quality is lower, but the floral profile is similar.

A green scent with a delicate but quite perceptible note of lily of the valley, and beneath that, the hyacinth. There’s a very slight bitter undertone and a balmy-herbal effect, so that the fragrance gives the impression of a very exclusive and expensive skin nourishing serum. I have both the fragrance and the cream, and they help me achieve that no-fragrance-but-smells-undefinably-pretty aura. For nature lovers, definitely.

I totally agree with Oxygene. The old version was so sexy, comfort, sweet, relaxing yet long lasting. The new version is stiff, totally green, not reassuring at all. I also want the old version back.....

I'm in love. This scent is really amazing for me..green, fresh, feminine, innocent.. On my skin lily of the valley is sooo present the first hours, and I love it! But also other notes come out with time.. It's really gentle and interesting.. Sillage and longevity are also great..Can't wait to have it..!

Beautiful fresh and pretty. Very summery. Kenzo's best offering I think. Lovely bottle. Individual notes discernable, for me the hyacinth predominates to start with. Overall it's a bit like Fleur d'eau by Rochas.

I got this one off a friend once since she was moving abroad and could not take all of her scents with her. OK, if I evaluate this basing my comments on the smell quality only - then it is a 4 out of 5 for an absolutely lovely summer frag: a freshly cut green grass bathing in the rays of sunshine. But when it comes to staying power/silage - on me it had NONE. Then again, my skin is like a void where so many fresh scents vanish without a trace into, so perhaps it is not entirely Kento's fault. On the other hand, Coco M stays through the day, and it is also fresh, so go figure ( perhaps it's the patchouli that hold on to me for dear life ). Anyway, this scent is inoffensive and more interesting than many summer perfumes out there, but it does lack a certain something for me. I just love a twist in perfumes, something that makes them memorable : Jardin Mediterrane is my HOLY GRAIL ( giant red letters with flashing lights meant here! ) for a summer frag, so this was nice to wear ( in the first 30 mins when it was still detectable ), but I would never buy this myself again.

This really is green, green, green. Fresh & modern, light and watery but not airy. There is a bit of soap in here too, along with hints of white flowers, and perhaps a slight woodiness to the base. While I am enjoying my decant of this very much, this fragrance is veering too close to really nice herbal shampoos. In fact the first thing it reminded me of was green Prell shampoo that I used to use back in the 80's. I liked that scent, too.

I've just realized how valuable the floral green family is. Always looking for good day-time scents, I don't want my fragrances to be overly sweet or calming. With a floral green, a certain crispness seems to be built in. In the case of Parfum d'Ete, hyacinthe is the most dominant note to me and combined with lily-of-the-valley, musk and peony it is definitely a safe choice in my wardrobe. In spite of its name, I think Parfum d'Ete can definitely be worn in spring and fall as well.

Light floral!

Most of all I feel the leading lily of the valley note and the hyacinth note in this fragrances.

The lily of the valley note smells natural enough.

It's nice, but it's not my cup of tea.

Me and this fragrance have a sort of love/hate relationship. I discovered D'ete while in France and perusing that global perfume shop that begins with the letter S. I tested all the classics, Chanel No. 5, Rive Gauche, everything, and this is the one fragrance that I liked.

It's fresh and crisp. The green notes are pleasant although very ambiguous. It was love at first smell. I also sampled Kenzo Flower. Great packaging, but I couldn't take that the floral sweetness. To me, D'ete smells, young, fresh and crisp, but there's a downside, the fragrance barely lasts more than an hour, and it's not cheap. I still love it, but wish it would last longer.

I also discovered that there is a classic version of this fragrance that was released in the 90's. It has a different bottle and a much more complex fragrance profile. You can find that in the "people like this also like..." panel. I'll definitely be trying that one.

The green notes in this are realistic,very close to how fresh cut flowers smell in a vase... a bit bitter but still soft and fresh.No artificial or sharp notes like in so many other green fragrances.The quality of this fragrance makes it outstanding.It's like the lily of the valley, which-on my skin at least-is the dominant note;young,natural,interesting,delicate,soft and simple.

Personality: Serene, sunny, innocent, pure, gentle.

Age: 18-45

Scent: Green, watery and pure, it's a joyful fragrance with just the right amount of sweet, innocent florals to give it a feminine touch. I definitely sense the lily of the valley, green notes, a watery hyacinth and a sunny peach note. It's such a natural scent, like a green field, drenched in dew and full of flowers on a sunny spring morning. No sharpness, no acidic notes here...just clean, gentle and subtly sweet.

When/Where: For spring and summer days. Perfect for hot weather. A great scent for the office/college or casual days.

Sillage/Longevity: Low Sillage, Weak-Average Longevity (3-5 hours)...this would've been the perfect summer scent if it wasn't for the longevity, but try it out on your skin, it may be different on you.

JUST FOR FUN: A summer scent for Virgo, Pisces and Aquarius.

This is a lovely, fresh green fragrance with notes of sweet pink jasmine. It's perfect for hot, humid summer days. I purchased a big bottle years ago, but I found I tired of it quickly. Even though the bottle is creative and pretty, it drove me nuts. It was big and awkward, and the fact that it couldn't stand up ruined the symmetry of the bottle display on my dresser. I don't know what ever happened to my Parfum d'ete. I must have given it away, because I'm sure I didn't use up the entire bottle. My using it got interreupted by Blumarine II, and then Blumarine II caused me to ignore D'ete entirely. I was still in the mindset that owning one to three perfumes was some kind of "law", and it never occured to me to keep a fragrance I wasn't using up to the last drop. Those days are long gone!

I had the bottle but the only thing I could smell was lily-of-the-valley. I understand the fragrance can be liked, it's just me who can sniff only lily-of-the-valley and I got tired of it... strange thing was going on with the fragrance on my skin. Pretty bottle.

Such a fresh, green, springy fragrance! It's a clear, straightforward scent, doesn't dry down to anything other than what it begins with, at least on me. And since green is my favorite color, this is one of my favorite fragrances. Love it, love it, love it, and I always get compliments on it. Highly recommend it!

Usually I change perfumes and don't buy the same perfume twice (there are so many possibilties out there :) ). Well, Kenzo Parfum d'Ete is my exception to the rule. I keep on buying it wherever I can - it's a bit difficult to find - and I find it perfecr for the summer days. It smells very freshy and greeny. It's like spring on my skin and is one of the most particulars I know.

Kenzo Floral Perfumes rulez de business!

This is how a Green-Floral fragrance should smell, and after more than 15 years, is still one of the most beautiful jazmin/lily-of-the-valley scent.

The original formula place a little more emphasis on Sandalwood/Cedar/Oakmoss but this new reformulation is beautiful too, and I found the differences are negligible, but the new bottle suck :(

If you're looking for a clean, fresh-musky-floral scent with excellent sillage and powerlasting , try this!!

fresh in an original and non-generic way - somehow it reminds me of the smell of bamboo, only more intense.. must be a mix of the notes that's creating that impression, as I can't see bamboo in the pyramid itself.. a definite must try for lovers of floral greens :))

I was very sad when I bought the new version of this fragrance! I was given the little frosted leaf from the sister of my step father who lived in Italy back when I was around 12 yo. I was just small enough to clench in my palm. How I treasured that leaf! I used to take it out of a keepsake box and take a little sniff for years and years! I bought the soap bar (which came in the old packaging) when I bought the perfume and it is definitely the original smell - the soap though is not the same when on the skin. I like the new perfume - but I don't adore it as I used to. Now I am reduced to sniffing a bar of soap!

I bought this perfume thinking it smelled like the original D’Ete, but I found out that this version is greener than the original one, but it is so leafy that it’s kind of annoying and obnoxious. Also I noticed that it has less staying power and the bottle is hard to handle. It certainly lacks of femininity and quality. I definitely prefer my old lovely, elegant, neat version of this scent; besides, I adore the frosted leaf bottle. It’s a shame that Kenzo discontinued this scent to replace it for this cheap, shameful misrepresentation of nature in an awkward bottle.

Very pleasant, green and fresh. A pared-down version of the delicious original (which can still be found at online discounters and ebay). The hyacinth and green notes are prominent to my nose, and the scent is pretty linear - there is no drydown, the perfume tapers off to faintness fairly quickly (2 hours on me).

I layered this with Diorissimo, and it was wonderful!

For me, this is the smell of spring! I had it 4 or 5 years ago and loved it. People said to me "this is your scent" Then my sister felt in love with it and I gave it to her, and almost regret it:) when I smelled it on her. I tried it lately and found it a bit too strong at the top-but after these few minutes it´s faboulos. It´s a high-quality perfume-like the other Kenzo´s. It´s my favourite perfume house. And on me, it lasted the whole day.

Note: This version, Kenzo Parfum D'Ete, is a reformulation of Parfum D'Ete by Kenzo.

The *original* formula,(PDPK), came in an upright, frosted glass leaf bottle in a blue box, and has since been discontinued. I think the original was the slightly better of the two scents, because it was fresh and slightly sexy,cjould be worn day or night, and was longer lasting. (I think you can still find the soap version of this scent for sale.)

KPD (the current version) has many of the same notes as the original, but it fresher, not sexy, and not as long lasting or versatile. Still, as a daytime casual green summer fragrance, it is better than many of the summer scents out there. So I am giving this version a qualified thumbs up.
