Summer by Kenzo Fragrance Reviews

A wonderful showcase of lush, soft and slightly green mimosa. I've always adored the smell of mimosa, it never fails to perk up my mood. Here she's the star, softly shining, lifted by the lily-of-the-valley and a tiny dash of jasmin and carried by a warm, musky-ambery base. My tiny 20 ml. bottle (designed as a pebble) comes from the "Ryoko" line, ryoko being japanese for travelling. A mimosa pebble to tuck away between whatever is in my rucksack and lift me up wherever I want. So happy with this find!

Ive had this, and would like to have it again. Lovely powdery frag, but not sweet, rather a floral, natural / nature, and botanical scent.
Different!! Unique!!
But - test before buying, definitely not everyone's cup of tea.

I teach at a school near an important park, here, in Montevideo, Uruguay, South America. This is my favourite fragrance to enjoy in my long Spring Friday afternoon at school, particularly if it's not too hot, if temperature is around 20ºC. Nature, yellow flowers, comfort, calm... And my colleagues asking lots of questions about the fragrance I am wearing.

This fragrance came at my possession back on 2006 as a gift actually, without having the chance to try it before. It was really and apocalypses for me...
It is maybe the best "summer" fragrance I've ever wear. It happens almost every day people around to ask me "what is your perfume? you smell summer"!!!
I am start wearing it end of spring - early June once I am having my fist bathing at sea till early-mid September.
It is not a "common" odour actually, and for any negative comments I believe that has to do with the "chemistry" of the one who wears it.
I am so sad that this fragrance has been discontinued, and I bought two bottles from Amazon....I am gonna miss it and I already trying to find a similar one

Beach,sand,yellow colour and sun tan oil!
These comes to my mind as a description of `Summer`!

So sad to discover that is no longer available BUT i found out that
Dsquared2 She Wood Golden Light is quite similar!

Hope that helps!

This perfume has the same effect all the kenzo perfumes have. For me it is smuthering. All I get is the powdery in it and I feel like my sinuses get blocked (but that is something that happens to me with all the powderies). That obscures whatever "floral sweetness" it might have underneath. It's a very soft and delicate fragrance though,if it weren't for the powder...

A very strange openingnote - like it is of kind of note. But it cant be as it is brand new. Have to wait and se what happens.
After a while the flowers are coming through and the perfume turns very soapy.
But I think it is an odd smelling perfume - suprised it is a Kenzo and to me it is not strange that it is discontinued.

Subtle, summery and fun... it is a very good fragrance for day use... at night, it might not always match up! This one's a positive neutral, nothing that really stands out... but then we've had our share of overpowering perfumes which we don't like.

Having smelled this gorgeous summery floral-clean smell on a friend I decided to give it a try myself. Unfortunately it didn't work at all with my body chemistry, bringing out a very metallic floral unpleasant note. But for those of you who can wear it it's a lovely scent, kind of like having just showered with an old school shower cream like Camay.

This is so soft and cozy. Really a baby lotion like perfume, it´s stays very long on your skin. It reminds me of Zwitsal baby lotion but then with a spicy twist to it. I really love this one and think it´s a cute treasure Kenzo has made. I have finished my bottle and wouldn´t buy it again soon but maybe in a couple of years i will be missing this smell and buy another one.

A lovely fragrance, but I would not call it an oriental floral - I think Kenzo Summer is a floral scent. Longlasting and wonderful. I love it. I don't like modern sweet parfum's but Kenzo Summer has an airy, fresh sweetnes , just so strong/sweet I can stand. The woodsy note in base softens down the sweetnes in a great way.

En underbar doft, men jag tycker inte att den är orientalisk blommig, utan Kenzo Summer är enbart blommig i mitt tycke. Hållbar på huden och superhärlig! Älskar den. Jag gillar inte moderna söta dofter men Kenzo Summer har en luftig fräsch sötma, precis så stark/söt som jag klarar av. Tränoten i basen dämpar sötman en aning på ett riktigt trevligt sätt.

I am doing this from memory and remembering this scent bought back memories of Avon topaze Kenzo is lighter and more floral and for me despite being lighter last on me for a very long time. Really lovely for anytime of year. I love the original kenzo but this one suits me so much more. Warm light and ahhh.

what a relaxing experience ! I would describe it as walking on a garden at the sun mixed with a hint of baby powder. when you first spray it smells like baby shampoo , but then the mimosa notes bloom and the other flowers mixed with musk I just love it ! It's soft, calm, great quality-sweet, flower-powdery. Even when the sillage and lasting power are not great Iam still buying a big bottle Iam gonna enjoy the magic softness of this fragrance until it last !

The first 15 seconds are rather nasty -- nail polish remover... but then suddenly a yellow flower garden opens up before your eyes... or nose... I smell sweet Mimosa, with just a touch of refreshing green notes, a very spring-like, hopeful, optimistic fragrance... maybe just a tad too powdery... but I still like it!

What a surprise I got this fragrance mini as a gift and really like it. Thanks RckChk. The initial notes are just stunning very soft almost like baby powder. Soft delicate, refreshing for the summer months. Smells like body lotion to me, clean out of the shower smell. The color of the bottle is just spot on. It a warm yellow fragrance the hugs you and holds you. As it dried down I could not help to see some similarities to BLV Notte. Sure enough they were created by the same nose Alberto Morillas only a year apart. Kenzo Summer is green in the opening, I really like the top notes on this one,much better than in BLV notte. So if you like Kenzo Summer you might want to give BLV Notte a try. They are not identical but share the same vibe.

I usually like heavier scents but this one got a hold on me. I've been familiar with it for quite some time, sniffing it whenever i got the chance but it wasn't until recently that finally got my hands on it. It's really soft,creamy and comfortable.It actually evokes memories of my childhood, playing at a sunny beach. At some point on my skin it almost smells a bit like plastic;not an artificial note of plastic rather a 'salty' smell of arm floats, sunscreen and swimsuit hungt out to dry. This scent is anything but boring or common.May be discreet but also playful,joyful and optimistic. It has personality but in a layback and quite relaxed way.It is memorable but not for those who want to make a statement. Sexy and appealing in it's own way the smell of sunny mimose will only make you feel better.

I used to adore this one and I'd finished a 40ml bottle in a very short time.
Tender, creamy and romantic, 'airy' and joyful.
I was searching it and intending to buy it again but I stopped searching after I got Champes Elysse.
Champes Elysee is on the same vain and bears strong similarities with Summer Kenzo (not the same perfume though), they both have a distinctive Mimosa note.
So, for those who want a little more affordable and easy to find alternative, Champes Elysee Guerlain would be fine (it's of outstanding quality anyway, maybe even better than Summer Kenzo).

If I could think of one emotion that this perfume evokes, it's undoubtedly HAPPINESS, with a capital H! This scent just makes you smile. I'm not sure if it's because of its simplicity or just thanks to its soapy/baby powdery goodness, either way, this is an endearing scent that makes you smell deliciously fresh, happy and content! Yep, this one is good all year round, for ALMOST every occasion [I personally wouldn't wear it on a very romantic date, only because it screams innocent, which doesn't always fit the mood ;-p]. Still, I love it and it's definitely a fave in my collection, that surprisingly doesn't smell like anything else I own, so in that sense, it's unique as well [which I love, 'cause who wants to double up on scents, right?].
I did want to add that on my skin this particular fragrance is much heavier than Clinique Happy and the staying power is a lot better, too! :-)

I initially bought this by mistake. I remembered my sister having a leaf-shaped Kenzo perfume and after asking her what colour it was, purchased ths one. I have now realised it was the green Kenzo Parfum d'Ete I should have got.

That aside, I thought I would like this anyway as I like Kenzo. However upon trying it, it smells very strongly of what I assume is the mimosa and possibly almond milk. It's also very powdery on my skin. I can't smell any citrus freshness at all or really any florals. After wearing it for an hour, I'm hoping it will die down later on. Not sure I could wear this for a full day!

I'm slightly disappointed after wanting the freshness of Parfum d'Ete.

So fresh and clean and so sensual at the same time - a real summertime Lolita. Fresh cut grass, sexy flowers and sugar all day long just from a couple of spritzes. Never thought a fresh fragrance could last so long and be so sexy at the same time...One of my favourites- Kenzo does it best!

I fell in love with this fragrance from the "first sniff". It is milky mimosa with violets, and with a very subtle tanginess.

Long lasting and quite strong, but, at the same time, sooo soft on the skin to the point of being a little powdery.

I fell in love with this scent at first smell... I tried it several times before buying it and had to have it. On my skin it is a very almondy mimosa and it lasts very very long. The drydown is creamy, which I like.I can't wear it in summer because it is too strong for me, but in winter it is a very comforting and warm fragrance...at work when the weather is cold or at home after work, when I need to feel cosy.It is supposed to be a summer fragrance though...
So not for everyday use for me, but delightful...

One of the best summer parfumes I've tried so far. I first tried it in middle of winter, yet it brought immediately comfortable memories of fresh summer sunrise. I would say it's floral fruity on my skin, not really oriental. It has long lasting power.

got a sample from mara_g, thank you so much and i really like it. the start is a bit skewiff to me...it's like a chameleon for the first 30 mins, the notes fighting for dominance between citrus, lily of the valley and jasmine. fortunately for me the jasmine didn't win on my skin :) it settled down first to lily of the valley, gorgeous and then the citrus, equally lovely. the overall feel to it though was grass...cut grass on a summers morning when there has been a really heavy dew. i don't get the freesia, almond milk or mimosa. fresh and lively but sadly quite short lived...about 4-5 hrs on me. and having looked around, it's impossible to get hold of. what a shame.

I get lots of daffodils and dandelions, which is unusual. The only other perfume I know about that features dandelions is CB I Hate Perfumes "I am a dandelion".
The citrus notes, shy flowers and the slight astringency (dandelion smell) that at least I get make this a perfect scent for spring. I like it a lot!

I really love Kenzo summer. It is a perfume that gives you positive energy. Wearing this is a great way to start a day, especially before work. Makes you happy, feels like a garment of sunshine and mimosa on your skin and stays very long (more than a day for me) One advantage of this perfume is that it smells very clean and soapy so the result is fabulous if you spray it on your clothes. A minimal, clear-cut mimosa odor for people who prefer clean summer perfumes rather than heavy tones.

When I love a perfume like I do love Kenzo Summer, I'm also interested in the whole range like in the deodorant and bodylotion. Already had the deo (which is lovely) and today I got me the bodylotion.
When first applied, you'll doubt that it will really turn out to be Kenzo Summer because you'll mainly get aldehydes, but after a little while...mmmm it smells delicious and like Kenzo Summer indeed!!!! It ads a creamy smell to the powdery drydown of the perfume which make the fume and lotion a really good combination!

Oh...and it does something wonderful to the sillage of Kenzo Summer too!!
It has quite some sillage of it's own so imagine this WITH the perfume...Mmmm!

So if you love Kenzo Summer...get the lotion as well!!!

This is incredibly soapy on me, although it's a mild fragrance. It reminds me of the pink, creamy liquid hand soap in our office restrooms. Strangely, I also detect a greenish lilac note, although it's not in the composition. Could this be the mimosa and violet?

Do you know that song from Stevie Wonder:

"Summer soft, wakes you up with a kiss to start the morning off.."...???

Lovely comforting scent!! Just when you think it didn't last, it will pleasantly come to your awareness, like a breeze of kindness and warmth.
With the complementary chemistry it will suit you as your own aura.
Powdery, but not as in fragrants that appear to be meant for older women...
Powdery as in sunbeam catching sand and as in peach coloured blusher...
I love summer made by nature and I adore Summer made by Kenzo...

Just lovely!

Summer by Kenzo doesn't smell anything like any summer I have experienced. I WISH everyone smelt this good during a humid summer instead of like rancid sweat and soggy heat stroke.

This is incredibly soapy, I would even go so far as to say...bubble bath?? It is so beautiful and clean and fresh.

Personally it reminds me more of an early spring morning with pale sunlight, lounging on the lawn in jeans & a T-shirt, face bare of makeup, just being.

It is a grown up scent but youthful & comforting. I can see myself wearing it.

Summer reminds me the midday sun over my head, squeezing the plants that grow in all those rocky places near the beach and filling the air with their scents; only the wind or the night will calm this tension. I find Summer especially wonderful worn by a mature woman that retains her beauty naturally; I love when my mother wears it, it is touching and tender.

Entire story about Summer is contained in one word: mimose. Actually in two: mimose soap. I don`t know does this short description sound inviting or repulsive to your imagination. So I`ll add; Summer by Kenzo is Vivaldi`s Concerto in a minor, French Provence at the beginning of may, silk scarf around your neck and warmth of love in your heart. I advise wearing Summer for special occasions. I implore you give it a try.

For me testing Summer was accidental event. Falling in love with it was consequence.

Sour-ish citric notes at the start (especially if you smell straight from the bottle you might notice it), that quickly turn soft and soapy on skin, but also fresh, clean and summery.

I've tested quite a few Kenzo scents and found many of them to be just lovely. Some of them don't seem to suit my personality or my taste, but they always seem well-constructed and at least pleasant.

This one is an exception, in my opinion. I found its powdery florals to combine very oddly with something else - I don't know what exactly - that smells faintly of butter. Perhaps that is the almond milk, or the musk, or the combination. Whatever it is - and I am aware that the difficulty may be my own skin - it made Summer seem rancid and unpleasant.

I liked the green-and-fresh Kenzo Kenzo Parfum d'ete in the similar reclining green leaf bottle very much, and still more I liked the earlier 1993 Kenzo Parfum d'Ete in the upright frosted leaf bottle, with its lovely spring flowers. This one I'd be happy to forget.

I like this perfume very much. It takes me away from my office to a sea side. I feel myself at a beach, drinking malibu and smelling the mimosa and jasmine flowers. It definitely reminds me summer but it is not a perfume for summer.
It is a fragrance to remind you summer in winter. Besides, it stays long.

One of the best soapy & powdery scent. I feel no citrus in it though, mimosa, almond milk and musk is very dominant, but not sweet or overpowering, it is like a light breeze. Oriental-floral is the perfect cathegory for this smell but I don't understand why the name is "Summer" as I think it can be easily worn in winter because it has a kind of warm feeling like a cup of hot milk in the morning.

This is more floral than oriental on me. Since I am not into floral fragrances, I wasn't sure if I would like this one or not. But the drydown settles into a floral exotic scent on me. I don't think I will buy a bottle, but I can tell you that I will enjoy my mini until the last drop. Nice summer fragrance.

what a disappointment!I've tested kenzo parfum d'ete times and times on my skin and I should say this one has nothing in common with that lovely perfume.
it starts with really artificial,offensive notes that have nothing in common with "summer" or at least the later summer perfume.
after some minutes it smells like cream,something like Nivea or other hand and face cream.it's kinda warm and golden smelling.I mean if you don't know about the bottle you may think it's a gold perfume for cold weather.
at the base notes I get strongly cedar mixed with bitter almond and something sweet and spicy.
that's a pitty.that nice bottle deserved a better perfume which can be wore in summer.it's the worst perfume by kenzo.

Soft and gentle, like a swan`s down.Among all the ingredients the violet definitely stands out.At first, it seemed like a lighter, more airy version of the Flower, but it does feel more clear, transparent - like a soul without secrets, wide-open and honest.If it is summer, it is the last that we see of it - end of August or even September, the sunsets are still fiery-red, but chilly, the air is starting to feel crispy, and the first yellow leaf is circling from a maple tree...Just the perfect time of the year to wrap your shoulders in this pale yellow pashmina.
The powdery note here is very prominent and the responsible one is mimosa - if you shake a cluster of flowers, the bright yellow dust falls, and that`s exactly how mimosa is weaved in this scent.
The drydown is fresh, a little soapy - very decent.

Floral scents are definitely not my cup of tea. And this smells of absolutely nothing but flowers -specially mimosa, which I normally like. I suffered a headache within minutes of trying it, it's way too heavy and overpowering.
Moreover, why did Kenzo called this fragrance "Summer"? There is nothing on it that could remind me of summer days (i.e., fruity or marine notes), but it does smell of spring flowers.

very non offensive fragrance.....

I like it but not fallin in love with this fragrance

A powdery type with soft musky feeling when I wear it....it's like after bath feeling.....

It's straight to musky notes nothing lemony on my skin

For me it's not a summer fragrance. I wear it in the cold season.

The almond milk in this one is very prominent. It's a lovely warm smell and I wear it all year round. Very longlasting too!

I got it today and I am very uncertain if its a keeper. I decided to buy this only based on these reviews and and on the fact that I was attracted to the bottle. I also seems to enjoy Kenzo fragrances as they all seem to be unique and playful.
The fragrance really smelled as I would imagine. I expected (and wanted) a soapy/"lotiony" smell with a hint of sunshine and happy non-sharp sweet, yellow flowers. This one is for bedtime, summertime, miss summertime-in-wintertime moments.
The ONLY negative about this, is that late in the drydown I THINK I can smell something that reminds me of a house that I had to visit sometimes in my childhood that smelled really bad. Strange.

I got this from a friend and immediately liked it! Indeed it's soapy fresh but warm. When I smell this I picture myself on a beautiful beach: the feel of the sun on my face and warm sand under my feet, while I hear the sea in the distance... It's just only a little too sweet to be perfect, in my opinion.

It is soapy, the smell of clean sheets having dried out in sunlight. It is one of my favourites for summer, but not for winter.

very natural, warm, sensual, but not powdery like all other kenzos. could be also worn in winter.
