Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey Summer 2015 EDT

Want a fragrance that just says Summer ?  Each year Issey Miyake does a Summer EDT and this year's is a burst of citrus and floral that has the season down.

The fragrance starts off very citrus, always a good thing in my book , with notes of pink grapefruit and lychee.  Passion fruit and guava add more warm weather goodness . This never becomes a super sweet fruity scent though. It's bright and a bit sharp but the florals and woods of the drydown keep it grounded.  It ends with a  hint of vanilla and light woods with  the citrus still hanging in there .

It wears close to the skin with light sillage and that's something you might expect from a Summer season scent. It can be used almost ( but not quite ) like a body spray.

I haven't tried  a Miyake Summer scent in some time so I can't say how it compares to past ones, but I do know they often share similarities . This one is going right into my perfume rotation.

Love the graphics on the bottle ? The design is by artist Yulia Brodskaya.

L'Eau D'Issey Summer Edition ( LE) is $ 76 for 3.3 EDT.
