L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme brings a freshly aquatic scent that is perfectly suited to many personalities and that can be combined on any occasion. Also, this type of perfume had already proven itself within the house in a feminine version. It is therefore logical that Issey Myake offered us her male alter ego in 1994. Behind this minimalist accord hides a perfectly structured perfume signed by perfumer Jacques Cavalier. In addition, the woody tones are also present and only reinforce the masculinity of the whole.
Issey Miyake’s first male fragrance
Before being a perfumer, Issey Miyake is a great couturier. It is known for adopting new materials that are easy to wear on a daily basis. Thus, her clothes combine daring and tradition. As a result, they become timeless. In short, Issey Miyake favors freedom and well-being above all else. Also, Eau d’Issey pour Homme is the house’s first masculine fragrance. It therefore had to be in the image of the fashion of its creator. Like the inventive and independent creations of the brand, he does not hesitate to shake up conventions and absolutely does not follow the trend.
Like the clothes of the couturier, this perfume gives a deep dynamism to the wearer. This eau de toilette is a perfect match for the men of our time leading an active life. Moreover, these values dear to the heart of Issey Miyake were already at the center of her feminine fragrance of the same name, published in 1992. L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme swears by simplicity and favors a natural scent. Thus, everyone can identify with their perfume and all occasions are good to reveal their refined trail. In short, Eau d’Issey for men is a universal and timeless fragrance.
The scent of Eau d’Issey for Men
Of course, like many men’s fragrances, Eau d’Issey pour Homme has a woody scent. However, this is treated differently. It is, in fact, worked in a more flexible and airy way than usual. The yuzu is present from the top notes. In this case, it is a citrus fruit from Japan that sparkles with an almost aquatic freshness. It is then associated with verbena and mandarin which only enhance its dynamism. Likewise, its aquatic freshness is found in geranium, blue water lily flower, sage and coriander. The whole is then spiced up by a clever blend of spices made up of nutmeg, saffron and cinnamon.
Finally, the woody smell is accentuated in its wake. This combines Japanese cedar, Indian sandalwood, cypress wood and Haitian vetiver. The whole is then spiced up with amber and musk. Also, with the success of its essence, since 2000, Issey Miyake revisits its scent every year to offer a more summery version. The theme changes each time and thus allows men to vary the pleasures. These variations are particularly eagerly awaited so, a little more patience, we will soon be in the spring …
