Dylan Blue in fine and with coconut
Too long for a statement, too short for a comment. Must get rid of it anyway, because I think this great newcomer is too short so far:
Fruity and fresh start with a clear fig note (similar to Versace Dylan Blue but much finer) and a nice hint of coconut. After about 1 hour warmer with nice herbal notes. Nice mixture of Mediterranean (herbs) and tropical (coconut). The Mediterranean character reminds of Bleu d'Issey, but without the cucumber note. In drydown creamier and slightly woody. Sillage the first 3 hours strong, shelf life with me a good 6 hours. I find it very versatile for spring to autumn as well as for leisure and office.

Great composition
The new fragrance from Issey Miyake is truly a fragrance that is as different as many other fragrances.
The opening in the top note with citrus, fig and coconut is very beautiful and successful.
After a while, a harmoniously coordinated herbal mix is added and makes the fragrance look very noble and interesting.
As a whole composition a sexy noble unisex fragrance Find all butchers can wear it, although it is declared as a men's scent.
The shelf life is medium, i.e. after 4-5 hours it is over. The end or drydown with patchouli and a little woody is successful.
The fragrance really has potential, why always this mediocre durability?
That's too bad.
Nevertheless, he will like and find his friends.
I am a friend of this fragrance and for the price of 59 Euro you can't go wrong.
As is well known, tastes are different and that's a good thing!
Try it out and let it work on you.
I hope I have whetted your appetite and wish you a nice weekend.

Now what do we have here?! A new Miyake that is neither a flanker or something with a name so long that it hardly fits on the bottle.
The bottle for Fusion is a bit of eye candy, good job marketing! Actually, the bottle itself does not seem to be the only thing that Miyake’s marketing department have been working long hours on : the entire background story with volcanoes, molten rock (the “mineral solar scent” supposedly emulating rocks in the hot sun), water, earth, fire, air, hot and cold are all a very grandiose theme for something that in my eyes is more down to earth. After testing for most of a week under different weather conditions, I can report that the main players are definitely the fig & coconut supported by rosemary & ambroxan and combined with the heart notes it gives off a rather aquatic feeling more than a fougere. Not overly masculine, but very pleasant.

Even if the notes are quite different, I do get some similarities in the base to one of Nathalie Lorson’s latest creations, K by Dolce & Gabbana. On one hand due to the rosemary/ambrox/ISO-E combo, but on the other hand also due to the rather underwhelming performance of both of these.

All in all, Fusion is a nice summery aquatic/fougere with a twist – nothing mindblowing but still enjoyable. So we’re basically left with two options here : If you’re not into scents whose performance is far from beast mode - just skip it! If you’re just a big Miyake fan and/or find the pretty bottle to be a nice addition to your collection, go ahead and enjoy it – just be prepared to bring an atomizer. Personally if the performance wasn’t less than average, I would probably be rating it higher.
