L'Eau D'Issey Florale by Issey Miyake

So much fuss over a perfume sample...

I only have one of Issey Miyake's perfumes that I have yet to blog about. For some reason, when it came to the original L'Eau D'Issey, I preferred the men's version much more. The women's version just didn't quite convince me.

But this sample tells a whole different story...and Issey Miyake has done it for me!

To start of with, I like how balanced this fragrance is. It's not too concentrated on one thing entirely, so you could always make out several underlying scents under the dominant note.

Top Notes I could make out are citrus (a mix of lemon/lime) which grabbed my attention for the first few seconds. Then quickly follows a slight powdery scent which blended well with the citrus. Tangy yet sweet. The powder scent resembles a light version of Kenzo's perfume. The floral notes then come in and further blend in so well.
Combine this with some slight musk.
And you have a refreshing, not overpowering blend of different scents working in harmony.

Perfect for spring.

For me it is just the other way around. I love the old classical L'Eau d'Issey and each and every further variation incl. the above mentioned just doesn't suit me; there is just something disturbing me ;-)

@ bosnishmuslima & La Petite Cherie: Like both of you, I noticed a lot of women like the classical version! I wanted to like it so much but it didn't seem to work in chemistry with my skin =( i don't know why that is, but the men's version blended in much better and gave off a nicer scent. I think this might just me something about scents blending in with our own natural odours.

@Sorlisa: it always depends on the own skin chemistry! I also have scents which I like so much at others and can't stand it on my own skin!
You gave me the idea to try the men's version and maybe to make a post on my perfume blog about L'eau d'Issey as it is really a classic and my alltime love!
