Lovely and clean.
Love this perfume! It's very fresh and clean... romantic and sexy and classy all at once. :) Awesome spring scent! Will replenish soon.
I've been wearing this fragrance for years. I'm pretty loyal to products, fragrances, etc. once I find something that works for me. I've been wearing Bond No. 9 Astor Place for the last year and pulled out my Issey Miyake last week just to switch it up. Applied the perfumed lotion...not even the fragrance...and got 3 compliments before the day was over. I always get compliments with this one. Now that I think of it, I rarely get compliments when wearing Bond No. 9 Astor Place. Not to mention, apparently the scent of the perfumed lotion lasts all day. Went to dinner following work and someone asks what I was wearing. I would have thought for sure the scent would have worn off by then.
I checked this perfume out because I loved the cologne for men. I know perfume is a very personal thing and what might smell good TO you might not smell good ON you, however, this perfume works really well for me. It's become part of my normal scent rotation. I wear it when I want to feel sexy but also sporty and confident. I feel the scent evokes those states. A bonus is that over the years a number of men have commented on the attractiveness of the scent. A long lasting scent too.
This perfume is VERY potent. My sisters used this perfume for years and whenever i smelled it on them, I loved it. When the time came that i actually acquired a bottle for myself, I hated it. The smell of the perfume itself is very woodsy and aquatic. It's a very nice, interesting smell. But when I spayed it on myself it was extremely overbearing. i only used ONE spray. I decided to not wash off the scent in the hopes that it would wear off during the day and become the beautiful scent I had smelled on my sisters for so many years. I was dead wrong. Not only did the perfume never wear off, the scent gave me a massive headache that lasted all day. I felt anything but beautiful. Maybe it is just the wrong kind of perfume for me because when anyone else wears it, it smells wonderful. If you like strong perfume and can handle the strong smell, this is probably a good buy.
This is my HG perfume, and I am pretty picky when it comes to scents! I have worn it now for almost 10 years, and I have never grown tired of it. I wear it year around, to work, when I go out.. everywhere. Its light for spring and summer, but can still go into fall and cooler months. I get compliments, and even my husband loves it (and he doesnt like all scents). It is a light, sparkling scent, soft and fresh, slightly sweet. It is the perfect mix between light and romantic but not too florally or cloying. Just a beautiful scent!! I will buy this scent until I no longer can. A little pricey, but worth every penny. The first time I heard of it, a girl walked by and I had to stop her and ask what she was wearing.. I am glad I asked :)
While walking through a certain department store's cosmetic and fragrance section, I had noticed the Issey Miyake kiosk discreetly tucked into a corner and was curious. After helping myself to the testers, I had found a new fresh scent in L'Eau d'Issey. It was light, with floral tones that were playful and sensual at the same time. It did not have the cheap, cloying candy flavoured scent of most contemporary fragrances cluttering up the beauty bars and counters these days. L'Eau d'Issey lingers throughout the day and is quite delightful when applied to your winter scarf as it comes in handy when travelling on a crowded subway train with strangers, some of whom have no concept of personal hygiene. Love the fragrance. Will buy again.
Unique fragrance... A combination of floral and aqua. A unisex perfume. Its like a rare flower in the middle of snowstorm. The scent is light but intoxicating... Love.Love.Love
This fragrance is delightful and classy but I really fell in love with it when I bought the roller. They scent is so potent and makes me feel delicate and refreshed during my stinky 12 hour shifts surrounded by boys. If I close my eyes tight enough, I swear I'm taking a nap in a meadow!
Issey EDP is truly a stunningly unique fragrance! It's is one of my most favorite fragrances! Water is the central theme of this fragrance. It represents purity, serenity, movement and vivacity by blending the sparkling qualities of water, with the warm undertones of the earth. L'Eau D'Issey is a pure floral with musky and woody tones. A very complex fragrance, the perfume is made up of wide range of flower scents including lotus, cyclamen, freesia and carnations, white lilies, with hints of amber-seed musk. The sent is Devine, I feel like a goddess when wearing it, it's perfect!
Not my HG fragrance but a strong contender.
The bottle is lovely and unique. It is supposed to evoke the moon rising over the Eiffel Tower. Done.
On me, this opens as a bright, aquatic, white floral. I get a strong lily of the valley almost immediately, then some rose, then some white floral type flowers, lily etc.... It could be overpowering, but the aquatic thing cuts it and keeps it light. I don't know how they do that, but there it is.
This softens down to a woodsy feel - sandalwood, cedar, on me.
The middle could be soapy to some, fair enough. I think I like that though.
I often wear traditional florals, and I enjoy the floral/soapy/woody journey. What makes this unique is the water feel through it all. It feels cleaner, brighter, perhaps a little edgier, more modern than a traditional floral.
This makes me feel pretty, but it a stylish way. When I am wearing this, in my mind, I am about 10 pounds thinner, wearing a swingy coat and great boots and gliding my way along a boardwalk. Love it.
