Kenzo had his breakout year in 1970 when he presented his first collection to positive reviews, opened his first store, Jungle Jap, and had one of his designs worn on the cover of ELLE magazine . With his new found popularity Kenzo was able to present his next collections in New York and Tokyo. He won numerous accolades for his women’s wear over the next few years and finally entered the men’s market in 1983 but waited until 1988 before venturing into fragrances.
Kenzo de Kenzo or Ça Sent Beau as it is now known, was his first women’s perfume while Kenzo pour Homme, launched in 1991, was his first men’s cologne. However, it was not until 2000 that Kenzo Flower, his flagship fragrance, was launched. A modern and sophisticated scent with natural elements meant to bring freshness and renewal to contemporary big city life, Kenzo Flower is a clear and unusual scent meant to inspire the modern, nature loving, city dweller. Other popular Kenzo perfumes include Kenzo d’Ete, Kashaya de Kenzo, Kenzo Amour and Kenzo Jungle L’Elephant. Men’s colognes include Kenzo Air, Kenzo Power, Kenzo Tokyo and L’Eau Par Kenzo Pour Homme. Kenzo is a Japanese fashion house founded by designer Kenzo Takada in 1970. Kenzo attended Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo—one of its first male students—and made the move from Tokyo to Paris in 1964. In 1970, he founded his first Parisian boutique, called Jungle Jap. Kenzo is credited with bringing Japanese fashion to the rest of the world, and his unique designs represent a mix of traditional Japanese lines with influences of nature and multi-culturalism.The Kenzo Parfums division was launched in 1987, though evidence of the earliest Kenzo perfume—1978`s King Kong, in keeping with the "Jungle Jap" theme—suggests the designer was interested in fragrance prior to launching a separate fragrance division. Kenzo Parfums` first official release was 1988`s Kenzo for Women, a scent whose name was later changed to ça sent beau (which translates to "it smells nice"). A series of successful fragrances for men and women have since been offered, including the company`s flagship scent, the ground-breaking Flower by Kenzo.Kenzo Parfums joined multi-national luxury goods conglomerate LVMH in 1993, and Kenzo Takada officially retired from the company in 1999, though he has since reappeared as a designer of home decor and furnishings.
