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.
