The men’s fragrance L’Eau Majeure d’Issey

This is how he made a first perfume for women called L’Eau d’Issey. This juice was followed, in 1994, by a male counterpart. However, it is precisely a revisit of this perfume that Issey Miyake offers us today. Focus on L’Eau Majeure d’Issey, a fragrance capable of transporting us with a single breath in the middle of the oceans.

The history of L’Eau d’Issey

The first version of L’Eau d’Issey was aimed at women. Nevertheless, this was not long in being followed by a male version. This perfume was then in perfect harmony with the fashion of Issey Miyake. Indeed, the creator has always tried to shake up conventions and not follow any trend. Issey Miyake likes to create her own style and meet the needs of her contemporaries. Thus, he creates fragrances adapted to our active lifestyle. These are at the same time ardent, authentic and modern, making float an invigorating breath in our daily life. L’Eau Majeure d’Issey is no exception to the rule and remains particularly faithful to the values ​​of simplicity, obviousness and authenticity of Issey Miyake. This new juice is intended for a man of action today, both young at heart,

The aquatic recipe of L’Eau Majeure d’Issey

The first version of L’Eau d ‘Issey was like “the feeling of strength and freshness of a torrent of mountains”. This time, L’Eau Majeure d’Issey takes us to a whole new place. It is more about the maritime atmosphere. This masculine scent, both fresh and powerful, retains its aquatic breath while giving it a more salty facet, as if coming straight from the sea. Eau Majeure d’Issey begins with an intense freshness resulting from a duet of bergamot and grapefruit. This sweet bitterness is then relayed by an aquatic and salty smell. Finally, the whole is based on a more woody and masculine trail, enveloped by the softness of cashmere. The result is a very balanced juice, both invigorating and authentic, perfect to accompany the daily life of today’s men.

Issey Miyake’s new bottle

On the bottle side, L’Eau Majeure d’Issey takes up the design of its predecessors. Its new bottle has retained the imposing shape of its predecessor while acquiring more rounded angles. This gives the whole a more contemporary side and also facilitates the handling of this new bottle. L’Eau Majeure d’Issey is always topped with an imposing glacier gray cap. This cabochon is in perfect harmony with the new gray color of this juice. Silver letters, meanwhile, display his name on its front face. The whole turns out to be particularly elegant.

Issy Miyake’s haute couture collections are tinged with absolute sobriety that plays with Asian and European codes to compose an exceptional multi-ethnic wedding. L’Eau d’Issey, the brand very first fragrance released in 1992, then Eau d’Issey pour Homme released two years later, will pay tribute to the most beautiful and sober of all natural essences, the water. Many opus will come to decline these star fragrances but none had yet dared to venture into more tumultuous waters like that of Eau Majeure d’Issey …

L’Eau Majeure d’Issey when the scent of water becomes a powerful wave …

Jacques Cavalier had designed for the very first fragrance of Issey Miyaké a pure and flowery perfume which, far from the opulent or sweet trends of the perfumes of the moment will go to pay homage to the one whose praise the stylist never tires of singing, nature of race! Faced with the success of Eau d’Issey, the same perfumer only proposed two years later Eau d’Issey pour Homme, which would go off to propel its aquatic waves with instead flowery accords of incredible citrus powers.

In a few months, Eau d’Issey pour Homme will cause the same tidal wave as Eau d’Issey pour Femme. From then on, the house will offer summer variations of these two cult aquatic fragrances but also opuses that will play with the brilliance of Jacques Cavallier’s accords to blend into darker shades such as Eau d’Issey pour Homme Noir Ambré or even La Nuit d’Issey, the same goes for women, of course, as Eau d’Issey is such a rich and complex source of inspiration.

For this new trip with L’Eau Majeure d’Issey, Aurélien Guichard and Fabrice Pellegrin have worked on the accords previously created by Jacques Cavallier in L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme in order to extract the marine force that will come down as a surge of wild freshness.

“L’Eau Majeure d’Issey, a new fragrance inspired by water, a masculine symbol of strength and movement. Water, in major mode. Primordial, Essential. First. Water as a principle of creation. »Issey Miyaké for L’Eau Majeure d’Issey.

A calone note to bring strength and energy to L’Eau Majeure d’Issey

In addition to having imagined L ‘ Eau Majeure d’Issey like an oceanic burst of freshness, Fabrice Pellegrin and Aurélien Guichard have built their composition so that it offers the beauty of strong contrasts between freshness and strength, between the clarity of pure water and the mysteries of deep woods.

“The current notes are vertical, cold, luminous, but they become interesting by contrasts with the others. They are softened with wood (vetiver, cedar), vanilla and ambroxan. »Aurélien Guichard on the subject of Eau d’Issey Majeure.

Thus the departure of Eau Majeure d’Issey corresponds to these famous cold and clear notes of which the perfumer speaks through notes of grapefruit , peppermint, bergamot and Dihydromyrcenol. In the heart, the fragrance will bathe in the sweetness of calone and hedione punctuated by a touch of tea. Finally, the nervous and powerful notes of cedar and evernyl echo the sensual strength of amber woods and the raw and wild animal nature of coumarin.
