Kenzo's Ryoko 2009 Edition

Have travel plans this summer guys and gals? Well then make sure you pick up the latest launch from Kenzo Parfums: Ryoko-a pocket-sized, ultra-light fragrance pebble. It's available in 5 of Kenzo's favorite scents, with 3 specifically for women and 2 for men. These Ryoko pebbles are colorful, cool, and airport-friendly! Nothing is neater and more unique than this latest launch from Kenzo. I received a sample last week and let me just tell you that it's FABULOUS! I'm traveling to NY in about 2 weeks and my Ryoko pebble is going with me! Check out the post below for a product review of Ryoko. I'll be having a guest review of the men's fragrance following this post sometime soon from an actual guy!

Product Name: Ryoko by Kenzo
Price: $29.00 USD
Purchase Locations:
Cons: fragrance spray hole leads to a stream of product dispensed instead of a mist or spray
Pros: beautiful packaging, travel-friendly, neat/unique design, wonderful smell, reasonable price
Rating (1=worst, 10=best): 8
Review: I was fortunate enough to try KenzoAmour Ryoko (the bright pink one) and I love the smell. It's this sweet, sugary scent that isn't overwhelming. It's absolutely fabulous and reminds me of a mix of Angel and the original Burberry for some reason, though I'm not sure either of those are really close in smell to KenzoAmour. I was also absolutely thrilled by the packaging of this product and would honestly buy more Ryokos to give away as birthday presents to friends and family. I love that it's $29.00 because it makes the product totally affordable for most households. I'm digging the fact that like that each smell is in a different color packaging. I love the inspiration behind the design as well; a pebble is the perfect shape to easily hold the palm of your hand and can be sprayed with ease. I feel like this product is small enough where you can easily slip it in a pocket or purse and not have it be a nuisance. Overall, I am truly impressed with Kenzo this time and highly recommend purchasing this product. The only thing that prevented me from giving it a 10 rating is the spray output. It seems to spray like a water hose rather than a mist or actual sprayer so that's a downside of the product. However, to counter the problem, i just spray it really close to my skin where I want the product to sit and then spread around the excess perfume with my wrist so none of it goes to waste. I did get a chance to smell the men's product but don't want to review it personally because I feel like a male reviewer would give more accurate opinions about the product.
