Issey Citrus Bliss
I'll try to keep this as short as possible. I was lucky enough to find a pre-owned, full bottle of this for a great price back at the start of the year. Initially I mentally branded it a light, kind of weaker version of the original l'Eau d'Issey pour Homme. I then compared the two and weirdly side by side the differences are apparent, on it's own 'Issey Yuzu or IY' as I'll call it definitely recalls the original. IY amps up the citrus considerably (while removing the OG's floral aspects, plus toning down the woods a little) treating us to a gorgeous, mouthwatering refreshing start which never really lets up completely throughout the fragrance's duration which for me was at least 7 hours, probably more.

Working outdoors, I kept getting whiffs of this frankly stunning scent. I realised just why I liked it so much, it gives me hints of my beloved Dior Homme Sport, the 2008 original only though! I consider that Dior a masterpiece which the brand should never have messed with but there you go, I live in hope that they'll bring it back one day but I doubt it. IY is lighter than the DIor but they do share several notes. Unlike the Dior and indeed the original Issey which are year round scents in my opinion, I find that IY is probably best suited to the warmer days, if only because such are it's refreshing qualities it would be a shame to waste it on cooler days but it's also probably too light and airy for most peoples tastes in the cold weather, still it could be a good zesty pick-me-up anytime I guess!

I'm surprised at the low scores for this fragrance, really I think it's an absolute gem. Of course scents are subjective, maybe I have odd taste. But perhaps people are keeping it at a fairly low profile so it doesn't get hyped? Hmm. Sorry but if that's the case, the secret is out now! :D

Superb stuff, Issey should bring it back and make it a permanent fixture, rename it 'Issey cologne' if you have to!
