Issey Miyake: L’Eau d’Issey Absolue

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

Brand new from Issey Miyake is the L’Eau d’Issey Absolue and I am completely and utterly in love with it. This is a strange one, as initially I wasn’t blown away, but on wearing it I get constant compliments and the scent just makes me feel really elegant and feminine.

I think the below image pretty much sums up this scent – warm, inviting and comforting yet elegant, classy and understated. I really don’t have enough good things to say about this one!

The notes in this fragrance say it all with a woody amber composition that includes the following: osmanthus and lotus in the top; jasmine and lily in the heart and white cedar and amber in the base.

The only way I can really describe this scent is that it doesn’t smell cheap – which is quite rare as I so often find floral scents smell cheap and over-powering – this is the kind of scent I would imagine myself using as my signature scent, alongside something like Elie Saab. Definitely a firm favourite, do yourself a favour and spritz it on in-store - I guarentee you that you will be back to purchase it by the end of the day :)

This beautiful fragrance is in store now. 25ml – R645, 50ml – R1055 and 90ml – R1195 – I will definitely be repurchasing this!

  1. Love your glowing review on this one, Tori. I have loved the original Issey on other people for so long (it smells horrid on me). I only found one, Reflections, that works for me, but it was limited edition. I smelled this 2 weeks ago and it was heavenly. So impressed with it, my best friend promised to get it for me for my birthday :)

    You are right - it's a very elegant floral and I love that its warm too!
