With each of her perfumes, Issey Miyake likes us to paint a landscape in its own right. With L’Eau d’Issey from 1992 , it was all about freshness. This fragrance plunged us directly to the seaside and our skin seemed to be swept away by a striking fresh breath. This scent that meets the elements quickly became cult and today ranks as one of the brand’s best-sellers. Also, during the summer of 2016, Issey Miyake seems to want to offer us “a second chapter” of his story. This is how L’Eau d’Issey Pure will appear very soon.
The olfactory image of water according to Issey Miyake
When Issey Miyake imagined Eau d’Isseyin 1992, many initially thought it was just a water story. The creator then quickly came to deny this idea, claiming that he had created much more than that. L’Eau d’Issey was in reality an olfactory odyssey. This perfume symbolized the water which runs, which leaves and which escapes. Also, the new Eau d’Issey Pure is exactly like its predecessor. It is a scent that seems to be in constant motion. This gives meaning to water and sublimates it in the most beautiful way. Today we are talking about water that gives the grayness of cities its silvery reflections. The latter has the power to transform the leaves of a tree into sublime pearl adornments. It then takes charge of the fragrant freshness of the morning dew and sublimates itself with the mystery of the wet bark of the wood. Behind the very simple and refined appearance of Eau d’Issey Pure actually hides a fragrance with a unique scent. This is obviously inspired by the past. Nevertheless, like a moving water, it soars towards a radiant and unexplored future, tinted with a particularly poetic imagination.
From the outset, Eau d’Issey Pure displays its resemblance to its elder through its bottle. Its conical shape seeming to rise towards the heavens is still very present. However, its architectural form is no longer surmounted by a glass ball. Likewise, its base is more rounded than before, giving off more femininity. This glass container is completely transparent. It then seems to play with light as if to transmit a scent loaded with emotions and solar notes. Eau d’Issey Pure begins with a very fresh and maritime scent. In this case, this perfume is full of marine accords. It smells of sea spray and releases a very ozonic aspect. Then, ambergris embellishes this maritime scent with a warmer and more sensual aspect. The lily, meanwhile, gives the whole a very feminine and suave tone. Its spicy scent is counterbalanced by the green, waxy luminosity of orange blossom. Then, Eau d’Issey Pure takes on emotion and lets us glimpse its elegance in the presence of Bulgarian rose. Jasmine, meanwhile, brings to the whole its warm, rich and opulent scent while the cashmeran completes it with a bewitching and very seductive depth. In other words, Eau d’Issey Pure ends with a sensation similar to that of a real second skin. rich and opulent, while the cashmeran rounds it off with a bewitching and very seductive depth.
