Kenneth Cole Reaction Perfume by Kenneth Cole, The playfully seductive blend of scents in Kenneth Cole Reaction is a floral adventure for women. The fragrance was launched in 2005 and became a favorite for daytime wear in spring and summer months. The opening notes of this fun perfume include apple, watermelon, raspberry, mandarin orange, melon, and grapefruit. Just below this luscious blend are heart notes of orchid, lily-of-the-valley, violet leaf, and jasmine. Holding these light floral and fruity notes together are base notes of white amber, vetiver, musk, and cotton candy. Wearers report that this perfume is moderately long-lasting with a easy-going sillage. Laurent Le Guernec was the professional nose behind this sexy perfume.
