Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey Women Review - The Delicate Scent of Summer Breeze on Your Skin
Issey Miyake is one of the most popular designers in the world. He started his career making clothes for French actress Brigitte Bardot. His clothing designs have been featured in movies like Pretty Woman, and he has even dressed Madonna from time to time.
In addition to his fashion design, Miyake also creates perfumes and scented candles. One of his fragrances, L'eau d'Issey, is a delicate floral perfume that evokes images of summer breezes and sun-drenched days spent lounging by the pool.
What Does Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey Smell Like
L'eau d'Issey opens with a burst of sweet peach and apricot. top notes are Lotus, Freesia, Calone, and Rose; middle notes are Lily and Osmanthus; base notes are Ambrette (Musk Mallow), Virginia Cedar, and Sandalwood.
The fruity notes linger on the skin long after you've sprayed them all over yourself. They are accompanied by light florals reminiscent of roses or jasmine. There is also a subtle woody scent that lingers throughout the day.
All of these notes combine to create a very soft scent. It could easily be worn by both genders equally, although some people may find it more suitable for women than men. However, if you prefer a softer scent for every day use, this is definitely the one for you.
L'eau d'Issey has a moderate projection. It'll last about 4 to 6 hours before it starts to fade away. This doesn't mean it won't still smell good for another few hours; just that it won't have the same effect once it fades. When you spray it on yourself, the scent is immediate but will quickly dissipate into the air.
This means that if you're going to be outside or anywhere else where you might sweat, don't apply too much perfume. Otherwise, you run the risk of wearing the scent off your body rather than on it. As far as being used in an office setting, this is probably best left to the ladies, since the fragrance tends to lean towards the sweeter side.
When To Wear Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey
L'eau d'Issey is perfect for summer nights when you want something light yet still sexy; it's not too heavy or cloying. You can wear this scent to a beach party, concert, or dinner date. If you want to wear it at night though, try pairing it with a lighter scent like citrus or sandalwood for a little extra oomph.
On a personal note, this was actually the first fragrance that my wife ever bought me, because she thought it smelled nice on me, and that made her happy. So if you're dating someone special, or even just wanting to impress a girl who likes flowers and light scents like this one, give this scent a whirl. It's really worth it.
