With L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, Jacques Cavallier originally made the yuzu, a zesty fruit from Asia, the leading note of a scent. The aim was to bring a woody, aquatic fragrance ideal for everyday use. As such, other ingredients included tarragon, bergamot and nutmeg put in a stylish, no-fuss bottle.
L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake Review
Issey Miyake’s L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme is a fragrance that brings to mind the 1990s and the East. It is aquatic as well as woody, the yuzu mixed in with other citrus fruits. The scent isn’t overpowering, and is ideal for wear during the day for its long-lasting effect. Many, however, were disappointed with the new formulation which is said to diminish the yuzu to make way for a more tangy, spicy effect.
