New Limited Edition Issey Miyake Summer Fragrances; Eau d’Issey and Eau d’Issey pour Homme are Desert Inspired
Eau d’Issey and Eau d’Issey pour Homme are known for reinventing themselves every summer. This year, they’re quenching our thirst for new fragrances with a cool, refreshing new summer line.
Inspired by long days in the desert. It is silent, still as the dense burning of the sun reflects off the sand. It is empty and desolate for miles ahead. This perfume is a cool surprise – the shock of finding an oasis in the middle of the desert. Fresh running water, rustling through the palm fronds. A moment of peace.
The bottle enhances the alchemy of opposites – the blue of the sky is mirrored in the water, contrasting with the shock of green leaves against the glass.
The inspiration from this perfume stems from that moment when the desert sleeps silently. The fragrance is a chorus of florals and fruit that creates a tender, juicy freshness. Notes of rosewater and pear lighten the fragrance to make it sweet and summery. Refreshed with fresh notes of mandarin and yuzu zests. Tempered, as the perfume settles, with notes of amber of vetiver. It still retains its roots – paying homage to the original scent with notes of peony and carnation, laying under notes of precious woods and osmanthus.
This is delightful, vibrant fragrance that strikes a balance between citrus, fruits, spices and wood. Smooth and soft, it creates a subtle film of scent to last all day. Perfect for finding your moment of cool respite in the summer months ahead.
