Issey Miyake’s wish was to create a “clear as water” perfume . Also, Eau d’Issey pour Homme embodies a purified aquatic freshness that goes everywhere. Its notes are much more marine than transparent and its watery evocation is here surrounded by citrus fruits, spices and wood. This perfume is made from rare ingredients whose goal is to evoke serenity and freedom. Also, this essence, created by Jacques Cavallier in 1994, is perfect for any occasion and its scent is designed to be universal.
L’Eau d’Issey, a perfume imagined as a garment
Before being a perfumer, Issey Miyake was also and above all a fashion designer. Also, when he imagines a new essence, he ensures that it is in the continuity of his seam creations, mainly designed to live and move. What’s more, L’Eau d’Issey Homme was the brand’s first fragrance for men, so it had to carry the soul of the brand. He is inventive and independent, like all the creations that emanate from Issey Miyake’s workshops. He does not follow any fashion, except his own, and has no trouble shaking up conventions.
What is more, it is authentic and modern, like the active men who live their lives to the fullest and are in perpetual motion. Moreover, the concept of water does not mean that it lacks personality or content. Rather, it evokes a natural element dear to the heart of Issey Miyake. He very often places it at the center of his inspiration. Here, it is water in its most masculine symbolism. It inspires strength, vigor, energy. In short, this perfume is intended for a man of action, not provoking but knowing what he wants.
Issey Miyake uses amazing ingredients
L’Eau d ‘ Issey for Menopens with a scent still little known in perfumery and coming straight from the homeland of Issey Miyake, Japan. This ingredient is yuzu, a small citron that sparkles with an almost aquatic freshness. What is more, it is associated with mandarin and a note of verbena, which gives it an extreme freshness. Then, it is accentuated via the blue water lily, sage, geranium and coriander. Then, Eau d’Issey for men continues to assert its character and delivers a basket of spices made from nutmeg, saffron and Ceylon cinnamon. The background is more woody. It is through Japanese cedar, Indian sandalwood, cypress wood, and Haitian vetiver that this essence draws all its masculinity. What’s more, his virility is still enhanced with a hint of amber and musk. The bottle adopts, meanwhile, a very contemporary form. Its lines are pure and its angles are sharp and well marked. It is very masculine and dresses its glass with an opaque lacquered varnish, soft to the touch, and contrasting with its gray cover.
