Fresh, pleasant and bright is the opening, consisting of grapefruit mainly. The drydown is mainly lavender, and the base adds vetiver and hints of bitterness.

The sillage is soft, the projection all right and longevity is four hours on my skin. Not the greatest performance. Schnitter is right: Allure Édition Blanche is much better in all aspects.

Overall nothing special, but a bright summery
lightweight. Pleasant. 2.5/5

Pretty good "fresh" scent. There are better ones like Mugler Cologne, but this one smells a bit different. I wouldn't buy a bottle myself (got a sample of it only), because I like other citrus fragrances better like Allure Edition Blanche.

Life is full of little ironies.

After trying out L'Eau 1 by Kenzo I decided to give L'Eau 2 a try, but it was several months before I found a seller with decently priced samples online before I could purchase it. For months I wondered if the combination of Blood Orange and Ginger would be as impressive as L'Eau 1's famous Lemon and Herbal Mint combination (before it turns to Vanilla and Cookies, unfortunately!).

The irony of it all is that it turns out I already owned L'Eau 2: it's called Burberry Sport.

L'Eau 2 starts off with equal amounts of Ginger and what I perceive as Grapefruit, not Orange. The notes are light an airy, which I anticipated. It quickly moves into a sweet, "clean laundry" phase which seems to be a combination of the opening notes as well as the Lavender and Cedar.

It fades away very soon after, leaving a wisp of sweet Cedar on the skin. This final stage is where L'Eau 2 departs the most from Buberry Sport, as the sweet Cedar is more natural, whereas the Wheat and Marine notes in Sport pull it towards a more "beach" smell.

Overall L'Eau 2 just doesn't impress me. It's strength is about half that of Burberry Sport's, and the unoriginality of the fragrance is embarrassing.

L'eau indeed, that is, light and airy. Despite being so airy it still manages to prove it's presence in the moments a person thinks it has dissipated. Orange is dominant and it gives off this certain bitterness which I find quite positive. Casual scent and nonchalant in nature. This one might find it's supporters easily but I doubt it'll be mentioned a lot. All in all, not a bad scent.
