Pretty poppy: Kenzo All Over Flowers

Pretty poppy: Kenzo All Over Flowers

Going dotty

Text: Renée Batchelor

Fans of the Flower By Kenzo series of fragrances have two gorgeous, limited edition scents to look forward to

If you smell spring in the air, perhaps it's Kenzo's new scents. To celebrate its popular fragrance Flower By Kenzo's 16th anniversary, the brand has taken inspiration from Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Like Kusama's infamous red and white dots, the red poppy becomes an symbol of obsession, dotted all over the fragrance flaçons in a playful, charming manner by designer Serge Mansau.

And it's not just the bottles that are getting the floral treatment. The juices too are new. Flower By Kenzo Eau Florale Eau de Toilette is a rosy floral, bursting with freshness and anchored by a delicate heart of Bulgarian rose, peony and freesia. For those who prefer an even fresher floral, Flower in the Air Eau Florale Eau de Toilette, has a lavish heart of jasmine, pear blossom and rose and a dry down of white musk.

Both juices were created by Alberto Morillas, who also was the nose for the original scents. You'll have to wait a while for these fragrances, which will only be released here in April, but keep your calendar marked as, like anything Hello Kitty-themed, they are bound to become collectibles.

$114 each. At Kenzo counters and Sephora outlets
