Kenzo Jungle L’ Elephant (Kenzo 1996) is very spicy, delightfully sweet, sensual and unabashedly opulent. It has a charismatic warmth with pleasing base notes of sincere vanilla, rich amber and a smooth and lovely cashmere. It glows as it floats from the skin in perfect projection. Jungle L’ Elephant is reminiscent of vintage Youth Dew, and perhaps Rochas Femme (the formulation with the note of cumin) but it is ultimately a singular scent experience… And a very beautiful one indeed.
Top notes: mandarin, cardamom, cumin and clove. Middle notes: ylang-ylang, licorice, mango and heliotrope. Base notes: patchouli, vanilla, amber and cashmere.
