Something about this scent that always draws me in. I do spray it on a cotton pad first and then wipe on my pulse points and neck. It can be overpowering (for me) if it is sprayed on the skin directly. It does last, I must say. Have used it for over 20 years and never tire of it.
Definitely my signature perfum. Love it since day one. Long lasting and very elegant. Makes such a perfect match with my skin chemistry that I just can't find any other scent as delicious, unique, sensual and magnificent. I'm a perfum addict and Issey is on top of my collection.
Fell in love with the original Issey Miake scent, L'Eau d'Issey on a trip to France in 1997. Every time I spray it on in the morning, it takes me right back to the South of France. Of course that's my own personal memory. But my husband, children and friends all associate this wonderful scent with me. It does not overwhelm, but does have many different layers that come out as the day or evening goes on. I've tried samples and have even purchased others, buy they never compare with Issey! I never leave the house without it.
