New Fragrance: Issey Miyake L’EAU D’ISSEY ABSOLUE

April 17, 2013

Nothing like changing up your fragrance to inspire the shift into a new season.

I’m an ABSOLUE fragrance girl and there is no such thing as too much perfume. I am referring to “too much” in the sense of being a perfume hoarder and not “too much” as in overloading yourself with too many, or too much fragrance at the same time!

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Absolue 


This fragrance is ABSOLUEtely gorgeous! It’s got a very distinct Issey scent, with a glamorous new warmth! Ideal for Autumn.

It’s got that floral presence without the frou frou (just the way I like it), coupled with a musky, spicy kick!

“Cloaked in light during the day
The night blooming-jasmine
opens and shines only
once the sun has set,
leaving it’s trail
The scent of it’s secret.”

Issey-Miyake-LEau-dIssey-Absolue-packagingThe structure of L’EAU D’ISSEY ABSOLUE is floral and luminous.

The top note is brilliant purity with a luminous accord. Heart notes are illuminated by the Night-Blooming-Jasmine, which melts into the base notes of vanilla and elegant precious wood. Sounds divine doesn’t it?

I’m a huge fan of the original Issey Miyake fragrance, and this one reminds me a lot of that original scent.

It kinda reminds me of champagne in so many ways, although it smells nothing like it 😛

It’s pure, distinct and all round beautiful.

I also love that L’EAU D’ISSEY ABSOLUE is only available in an Eau De Parfum version (for now), which means a little goes a long way.

I honestly prefer EDP’s because they just seem to gradually wear off without disappearing completely, which happens to me with EDT’s; especially thanks to the humidity in Durbs!

Go check this fragrance out, then come back and let me know what you think of it. I’d also love to hear if you’re a fan of the original ISSEY MIYAKE and how you feel about this fragrance in terms of sticking to it’s distinct profile.
