Fresh, spicy, versatile, and a bargain
This is a long-overdue proper sampling of the original Issey Miyake Nuit d’Issey EDT from 2014, a great fresh spicy mix that seems to have a bit of a Spicebomb-esque “hot meets cold” motley of spices along with fresher fruitier elements as well, its blend consisting of bergamot, grapefruit, leather, black pepper, incense, ebony tree, tonka, patchouli, and some other spicy/woody notes. The leather is fairly faint, the main vibe being a citric/woody/spicy blend that’s just done very well overall.

This evokes a classic “what’s not to like?” reaction from me, as it’s so easily likable (and the assortment of notes seems formulaically safe to yield a good result) yet I can see how some might not be smitten with it. It’s good, certainly, but is it great? It’s surely practical, as, despite pertaining to the night in name, it’s invigorating and fresh enough to be a daytime and year-round option to the point that I doubt it would seem out of place even in the heat of summer.

Comparisons I’ve seen between this original EDT (2014) and the subsequent Parfum version (2015) seem to suggest that the Parfum is both more acclaimed and more up my alley personally, and then there are of course the other variants that have come out and been pretty popular since then (Polaris and especially Pulse of the Night)

It’s essentially a cheapie at this point, currently $35 for 125ml (the larger size) on FragranceNet, a deal that seems difficult to beat given the brand and quality of the juice. So it’s a bargain that I’ll have to seek out if I do not perhaps try the Parfum first.

Back to the 90s....
This scent gives me a strange deja vu, it has an old school vibe like some male perfumes from the 1990s but pimped to a 2020s level with some extra accessories.
Dry woody notes, with incense thrown in. Fresh and herbal with vetiver and a somewhat synthetic leather, also some patchouli rubbed in the mix with ISO-E Super. Not sure what scent the "ebony tree" in the note pyramid leaves though ?? The dry citrusy feel from most other Miyake offerings is clearly visible.

Longevity is not very impressive, I get about 4 hours max before it's gone. Not something I'd wear to a club for attention.
Conclusion : very safe and pleasing but... rather boring.

Outsider in own assortment, but a good ...
... the fragrance I had bought myself out of curiosity when the price was temptingly low.

Previously of course looked here and despite the cautiously enthusiastic reviews, considered worth ordering.

First sprayer ... oh, something new. The fragrance does not crack male hard, rather restrained and moderately heavy. The intensity, or to express it in "volume", the noise is also restrained, not calm, but also not the heavy hammer.

Because of my "Spleen's" monthly to increase my collection of flacons / scents, my wife is rather reticent with compliments what my scents concern. But here she came all by herself and said, "smells very good". That means something! Normally I focus on fresh, aquatic, or on Tonka fragrances. This one's different, it's different. I don't want to lift him up on a gallery, just to say he doesn't have to hide.

It may be that the shelf life does not break any records, but the fragrance has its reason for existence. For me this is an everyday fragrance that goes down well both in my spare time and at work

Fresh and elegant
Nuit d'Issey is an extremely fresh, young and urban incense, but without losing an iota of elegance, with a very marked masculinity, and an extraordinary cleaning. I really liked this interpretation of the incense, very far from the incenses that I usually consume, but also a very beautiful incense.

The Start is fresh, with a good citrus dose and a fruity touch, and of course, the incense and some leather are beginning to be noticed, but slightly still. Then, the incense begins to have more prominence, but here it is entertained by a leather bottom, with some wood and many spices, which give it a dark and respectable appearance, but keeping that vibe fresh and young. From here, the incense leave is wrapped in a mixture of tonka bean and patchouli, with a slight woody leave very deep. This final part, I would do something generic if not for the touch of incense, which brings the freshness and elegance necessary to not fall into the boring, anyway, it is an exquisite aroma that is reminiscent of others by the duo of tonka and patchouli, but that is still very pretty.

In terms of duration is fine, between 6 and 7 hours in skin, with a moderate projection from the beginning.

Night soul perfume and for cold or temperate climates. His dark heart of leather, spices and incense, which despite having that fresh vibe, is not a scent that I see diurnally, anyway, everyone will use it as they prefer, yes, I think that with the heat it would not be Very good ally.

When I say that this perfume is fresh, I mean that it is an easy to wear and very versatile incense, nothing opulent or loaded like other incense perfumes I know.

Smells like average guy at night - spicy, ambery, woody, faceless. There is no reason wasting time describing this one....

Harsh..
Omg, i can't believe Mr. Ropion created something like this! Very harsh and sharp opening, somehow linear, i could detect a minty note Which couldn't get along with the insense, vetiver and spices in the heart IMO, even the tonka's sweetness could not break it. Big disappointment, you have to try it first before buying.

Nice dark flask holding an Issey dark juice or what can be called as noir under the Issey's tradition of fresh fragrances. Very nice though.

Dark, spicy, sweet and alluring. This fragrance is perfect for an evening encounter with a lady-friend (or man-friend if you like). Superb
