The fragrance L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme, nature for men.

Her first fragrance, “Eau d’Issey pour Femme”, is an essence as light as it is pure. Its undisputed success prompted Issey Miyake to create her first fragrance for men, “L’eau d’Issey pour Homme”. The two waters are then like yin and yang, united by the natural force of the water.

Issey Miyake’s world

Issey Miyake was born in Hiroshima in 1938 and therefore grew up in a post-war world steeped in history. Avant-garde Japanese designer Issey Miyake is known for his simple yet elegant style. Issey wanted to achieve a fashion “which is neither the East nor the West”. His fashion is at the border of time, between sobriety and minimalism. Issey Miyake loves to create clothes that people feel good in. His style is above all universal. Aesthetic but practical, Issey Miyake has always fought for the democratization of clothing. It is in this continuity of spirit that Issey Miyake invented “L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme”. Its bottle is like the woman’s version, refined and understated. The semi-translucent, semi-opaque mat glass is surmounted by a cabochon with square angles.

L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme, obvious fragrances

“L’Eau d ‘ Issey ”appears to be a very different fragrance from the trend. However, it is not provocative and its extravagance is simply due to its simplicity. “L’Eau d’Issey” begins with fresh but very dynamic scents thanks to the association of grapefruit, bergamot and yuzu (Japanese citrus). The vitality of the top notes is enhanced by notes of mint and rosemary. These give the composition an unsuspected wind of freshness. Then, the freshness becomes more aromatic with the presence of sage, coriander and geranium. The water lily, for its part, reinforces the aquatic aspect of the composition. The base is woody, vigorous and deep with accords of Indian sandalwood, cypress wood, vetiver, white musks… An unexpected aquatic woody note,

Japanese designer born in Hiroshima, Issey Miyake organized his first fashion show in Europe in 1973. His sober, nonconformist and modern style was very popular. Between East and West, Issey Miyake imagines a world where fashion is natural. “L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme” follows the success of “L’Eau d’Issey pour Femme” created in 1992. While water is still at the center of its composition, “L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme” » Offers not only an invigorating marine aspect, but also a woody, tenacious and powerful side.

After having proposed the brilliant Eau d’Issey pour Femme in 1992, the very young but very famous haute-couture house of Issey Miyaké renewed the feat by asking Jacques Cavallier to compose a masculine perfume this time. It will be called Eau d’Issey pour Homme and will play with its apparent transparency just as well as its alter ego to amaze us with its power …

When Jacques Cavallier combines transparency with elegance with Eau d’Issey pour Homme

For Jacques Cavallier, now very famous perfumer, Eau d’Issey requested by Issey Miyaké in 1992 was his very first fragrance. Today known worldwide and at the head of multiple scented compositions for Yves Saint-Laurent, Cartier and more recently Louis Vitton, Jacques Cavallier has not forgotten his crush, he will simply say, his stroke of genius will say -t-on, L’Eau d’Issey.

“You know, it’s like the girls, the first one you never forget. And my first scent was Issey Miyake’s Eau D’Issey. It was an important starting point for my creation. Whenever I feel it, I am always moved. “& Nbsp; Jacques Cavallier on Eau d’Ussey for Antidote.

How can we imagine that the perfumer could not write this scented emotion for men, totally out of step with the trends of the time? This was done only two years later with Eau d’Issey pour Homme which, just as Eau d’Issey in a female version had done, moved us with its freshness as well as astonished us with its depth. / p>

L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme is perhaps even more enterprising than its feminine alter-ego, as its ultra-fresh facets clash with its fiery facets of spices. Far from being transparent, Eau d’Issey pour Homme is a perfume which, “between strength and balance goes the essential” Issey Miyaké for Eau d’Isssey pour Homme.

Eau d ‘Issey pour Homme or the “steeped” character of a spicy woody fragrance

From his Grasse origins, the Eau d’Issey pour Homme perfumer has retained his love of natural raw materials from flowers of course, but also citrus fruits or even spices that he likes to distill in magnificent scented creations such as Eau d’Issey pour Homme.

«What I learned with them, it is above all an approach of raw materials, natural in particular. They instilled in me this love, this passion for nature in general and the wonderful materials that can be used to create perfumes. “& Nbsp; Jacques Cavallier for Antidote.

So we will hardly be surprised to find in the start of Eau d’Issey pour Homme a tonic and fresh composition of mandarin, yuzu, grapefruit and orange. Coriander brings its aromatic strength to this flight, proposed as a cascade of citrus fruits. Then the spices collide with these freshness to bring their torrid heat between notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. The geranium is invigorating flowery and the marine note brings its iodized freshness. Finally vetiver, cedar and amber woods form the mysterious and sensual trail of this man from Eau d’Issey pour Homme. A few white musks will give it a comfortable cloud of tenderness.
