Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey- Summer 2016

Summer in a bottle is one way to describe Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey  .  An annual release this year's bottle features sunny graphics by artist Michelle McKinney.

2016's version is similar to last year's , immediately zesty and refreshing, smelling like sun and laundry dried in the clean air. The grapefruit and lychee notes hit right off and are not sweet but more tart. Pitahaya, guava and passion fruit are the mid notes hut again this never veers super sweet. It's fragrance that will stand up to heat well with just a little light woods ( I get cedar mostly) at the drydown to ground it.

As it is a light scent and an EDT you won't get loads of lasting power here but it's also light enough to be re-sprayed and topped up midday or evening without overpowering you or those nearby .

Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Summer EDT is $ 78 for 3.3 oz at Macys and Sephora
