FRAGRANCE FRIDAY – ISSEY MIYAKE L’EAU D’ISSEY POUR HOMME
L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme has discreetly made a name for itself as a unique and elegant reference in the world of men’s fragrances. With its power and delicate balance, this wonderful scent goes straight to the essentials.
Since its launch in 1994, this citrusy-spicy-woody fragrance created by perfumer Jacques Cavallier has won its letters of nobility. It is now considered a great classic.
This innovative scent is widely appreciated and has a large, loyal following. Its success can be credited to its lightness and freshness as well as to its very masculine personality.
It offers a perfect balance between serene and explosive notes. Its freshness is surprisingly long-lasting with an unexpected splash of mandarin orange and yuzu, a Japanese citron with a deep, vibrant, memory-evoking bouquet. Alongside these notes we also find delicate verbena, cypress, coriander and sage.
A water lily middle note brings forth L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme’s aquatic floral character while the generous personality of bourbon geranium spreads throughout it with subtlety. Spicy hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and saffron bring warmth to the fragrance and bathe it in sensuality. And finally, assertive amber tobacco, sandalwood and vetiver base notes contribute their distinct masculine character.
