Born in Hiroshima (Japan), Issey Miyake first performed in Paris in 1973. His style is both elegant and minimalist. Between East and West, Issey Miyake succeeds in finding a unique and at the very least avant-garde style. Its concept of easy-to-wear clothing will appeal to women all over the world. Its first fragrance, Eau d’Issey, was launched in 1992. In the same style as its haute couture collections, Eau d’Issey is an elegant and refined fragrance. L’Eau d’Issey will also be the beginning of magnificent olfactory successes.
L’Eau d’Issey le Perfume, a pure and light fragrance
The limpid notes of Eau d’Issey
Issey Miyake is inspired here by nature and imagines waterfalls in the middle of which floral and woody scents are modestly intertwined. Eau d’Issey is the expression of a unique aquatic floral trail where the lotus, symbol of the East and the rose, symbol of the West, meet. Issey Miyake wanted more than anything to imagine a perfume “clear as water, the smell of a mist produced by a waterfall, mingling with the scent of flowers and the scent of spring woods”.
Even if in 1992, olfactory fashion was with marine notes, Eau d’Issey pour Femme would meet with phenomenal success. The composition begins with notes of lotus associated with those of freesia and cyclamen. The heart, ultra floral, is filled with carnation, lily of the valley, peony and lily. The back is impregnated with precious woods with disturbing accords of musks and osmanthus, for a trail that is as unique as it is unforgettable.
L’Eau d’Issey Pure, between wisdom and madness
An even clearer reinterpretation with Eau d’Issey Pure
Pure Issey Water is like an interpretation of endless flowing water. Sometimes wise, sometimes crazy, Eau d’Issey Pure is like a torrent that takes us further and faster. This version of L’eau d’Issey has marine scents as well as a very carnal facet. The composition effectively takes off on a marine accord that offers tones that are both pure and fresh, combined with ambergris. You can almost feel the spray and feel the force of the winds. The heart blends lily, orange blossom, jasmine, and Damanesca rose, for maximum romanticism. The sensual base will finally be full of cashméran.
The bottle of Eau d’Issey pure still sports a slender silhouette as if it was reaching up to the sky. The base of the bottle is more rounded, more feminine. The whole is crowned by a brushed metal cabochon which marks the modernity of the whole. He also demonstrates Issey Miyake’s love for contrasts, because he plays here perfectly well, the contrast between steel and glass.
L’Eau d’Issey Pure Nectar de Perfume, when water becomes sensual …
A sweet variation with Eau d’Issey Pure Nectar de Parfum
In 2017, Issey Miyake decided to reinterpret his first perfume and proposed Eau d’Issey Pure Nectar de Parfum . Unique and always contrasting, the latter is more suave and sensual than its predecessors. Water is a real source of inspiration for the Japanese designer. Underground, mysterious or cool, it crosses mountains, oceans, rivers, forests. Inspired by its predecessor, the bottle has here evolved into a more contemporary form. Its stature still soars towards the sky with transparency, while the famous ball located at its top has disappeared.
Elle a été remplacée par un bouchon pyramidal en cuivre. La base du flacon arbore ici une couleur pêche très féminine et sensorielle. La composition s’envole sur la tonalité fruitée de la poire, associée à celle du miel. Son cœur se gorge de rose alors que le fond de la composition conjugue l’ambre gris, le cashméran et le bois de santal.
Entre pureté et élégance, l’Eau d’Issey pour Femme se veut épurée et minimaliste à l’instar des créations Haute Couture d’Issey Miyake. Elegante et étonnante, l’Eau d’Issey pour Femme nous fait découvrir des émotions inédites, nouvelles et insoupçonnées.
