Fragrant Friday: Kenzo World Eau de Parfum

Fragrance powerhouse Kenzo has a new perfume on the market this month, and it’s called World.  The packaging is to die.  The bottle looks like a lidded eye with a rose gold pupil hanging down in the center of the eye.  Far from being literally an eye, the concept is that this could be a […]
