Hello dear Community,
i actually wanted to buy the male counterpart to L'Eau d'Issey, but I discreetly sold out... No problem, I also love the "femme" version. ;) So much for the bad buy. ;)
The opening is fruity. So my first association. If I let this fragrance work for a few minutes, I clearly recognize the lotus. I usually let a top note like that scare me away. Too much I have the fear it would soon become too sweet, sticky, even sticky smell. But it comes differently. I now call this fruitiness vitalizing and stimulating. Springlike, or a fruity white wine...
The transition to the heart note is smooth and flowing. My favourite flower, the whiting rose, appears wonderfully and the fruity aroma gives way to the floral aroma without losing its vitalising component. The lily swings softly without overtaxing me and is carried by a hint of lily of the valley. Honestly, I confess nothing of the rose and carnation. As a florist who deals with these flowers on a daily basis, I claim to be able to recognise these aromas. But even with concentration I do not recognize these...
After more than 3 hours I notice warm chords of musk and amber. Gently vibrating, they continue to wear the head and heart notes... I love this fragrance that nothing gets lost until the end in 18-20 hrs. The fruity and floral are still audible, but wrapped in warm aromas of woods, amber and co.
L'Eau d'Issey is skin affine due to the musk and yet blessed with a well perceptible sillage. My colleagues are thrilled every time how "delicious, fresh and clean" I smell when I pass them. I also elicit a commendatory comment from the boys from time to time. When asked whether they would rather declare this fragrance as men or women's fragrance, the spirits divide. That's the way I see it, though, and I feel this scent as unisex. If you want to come across as a masculine man, you CAN layer with a slightly more bitter scent if necessary. I tried Tom Ford Oud Wood. That gives it all a bit more astringency and depth. Find it without layers but definitely better.
The fragrance can carry from age through the bench away anyone. From young to old, man or woman. Also this one is timeless, not for nothing it is in production since 1992 until today.
Prices are from approx. 30€ at Amazon, DM and everywhere where there are fragrances
