Fruity-metallic green aquaquat
Often you don't know what the fragrance pyramid has to do with what you smell. It's different here, she describes the scent here. But that which actually constitutes him cannot be described, only perceived.

For weeks the dry heat has been brewing here: a difficult situation for a perfume. Most summery fragrances need humidity to take effect if they are not to disintegrate anyway in heat. In this dry and hot weather the best thing for me is A Scent. It's also nice that the fragrance has a good intensity and durability without being annoying. In cooler weather I may have other favourites, but now this one is simply unsurpassed. Should actually also be wearable for the masters of creation, one would have to try it out.

Fresh green stems
This is indeed a very green and fresh perfume but not aquatic at all. The Issey Miyake vibe is definitely there but does not make this perfume heavy or heady. I could wear it all wear round especially during spring and summer. It is long lasting with decent sillage. I have tried the edp but is very sweet and the flowers are rather thick. This is a very classy and unusual perfume, try it!!!

Crystal Clear Prettiness In A Bottle
"A Scent" is not *just* a scent! It's a jasmin patch next to an herbal garden near the banks of a crystal clear lake where the moon is full and the fragrances are cool and heavy in the air......

Fresh, (verbena & amalfi lemon), pretty, (jasmine) and deliciously 'powdery' (cedar on a base of galbanum) and all this without that it loses its feathery-light air of cool prettiness. A treat for every occasion and age.

Silage is: "fresh jasmine wrapped in a cool breeze of cedar with a dash of lemony moonlight" -- Longevity: 6+ hours.

A must try for people who like light scents that still have impact without feeling 'heavy'.....A scent to feel pretty and at ease with. A scent that is easy to love...

Not my cup of tea
A Scent by Issey Miyake is possibly one of the most difficult fragrances I've ever come across.

There are certain scents that remind me of my childhood and the opening of this fragrance certainly takes me there. Although nostalgic, I would prefer not to wear it on my skin.

Fellow Australians will perhaps recall the scent of dry grass in the Summer and dandelions, those pretty yellow flowers that seem to pop up in places where you least expect. When I was little I would lie amongst these bitter smelling flowers, and this is exactly what A Scent by Issey Miyake smells like. Dry grass and bitter dandelions.

Of course the scent does develop beyond this intial bitterness into something quite fresh and lemony. However the drydown reminds me of a shiny, metallic kitchen sink, recently scrubbed until it shone using lemon-scented cleaning solutions.

Disregarding the connections I made through smelling this to both the backyard and the inside of my home, A Scent by Issey Miyake could be described as a green aquatic. Grassy, metallic, salty scents don't appeal to my taste, however I don't doubt that some people will enjoy this fragrance's unique qualities.

Refreshing!
Very pleased with this one. It is such a clean, natural smell. I would describe this as an aromatic, woody and green floral, brightened with sunny citrus notes. I pick up on the cedar right away, which gives the fragrance a pleasant, almost tannic dryness. To me, this smells like a sun-dappled wooded glade in early spring. This would be so refreshing on a hot humid day. Definitely unisex
