Between East and West, Issey Miyake’s style is above all minimalist. After learning ready-to-wear from the brands Givenchy and Guy Laroche, Issey Miyake decided to enter the world of fashion and presented his first fashion show in 1973. He then entered the world of perfumery in 1992 with a refined fragrance, in its image “L’Eau d’Issey pour Femme”. Simple, but obvious, the Eau d’Issey pour Homme fragrance was launched in 2016 and takes on the DNA of its female counterpart.

The aquatic tones of Eau Majeure d’Issey
With the version of Eau Majeure d’Issey , Issey Miyake has chosen to put water back at the heart of the fragrance. Here, water is indeed the symbol of masculinity and natural strength. Issey Miyake lets the elements come to us. Between citrus and marine accord, L’Eau Majeure d’Issey presents itself as a masculine fragrance that is at the same time simple, aquatic and terribly beautiful. The composition takes off on the lively freshness of bergamot and grapefruit.
Its heart is loaded with marine notes, combined with a salty accord, giving here all its character to the composition. Finally, the base is delicately sensual and harmoniously blends cashmere wood with a woody complex.

The noble materials of the Nuit d’Issey
Between attraction and daring, Issey Miyake presents here a new variation with the Nuit d’Issey . It is a duo of talented perfumers, namely Loc Dong and Dominique Ropion, who have developed this reinterpretation in a lively and daring way. Courageous and mysterious, the man Issey Miyake attracts here thanks to his hidden qualities. Lively and powerful, Nuit d’Issey is a fragrance that sounds like an ode to wood and highlights noble materials, such as leather or black wood. The composition begins with a citrus combination of grapefruit and bergamot.
The heart is powerful and combines leather and vetiver. Finally, the base is ultra sensual and harmoniously blends patchouli and tonka bean. If the bottle takes up the main codes of the elegance of the Nuit d’Issey, it displays here a most mysterious bluish black color transporting us directly to the heart of the night.
Fresh and elegant, Eau d’Issey pour Homme resembles its feminine counterpart. Refined, the fragrance is based on water that it seems to shape in different ways. All its variations reveal unique emotions, but all join the DNA of the original fragrance, namely masculinity.
