Issey Miyake is an internationally renowned Japanese designer who has combined fashion and technology through his exhibitions and products since 1970. He has reinvented fashion in an inspiring and moving way that makes him stand out in a crowd of designers.
Miyake’s philosophy brings together the “importance of imagination and the development of new technology,” the main focus of his brand. In his various fragrance collections he puts nature at the forefront of the selected notes.
This summer Issey Miyake Parfums invited English artist, Michelle McKinney, to translate the traditional collaborative Summer Fragrance Collection into colors. I have to admit the bottle itself is absolutely stunning. Not only is it artistic and delicate, but the bottle itself makes you feel very feminine and empowered between the light and energetic notes combined together.
The colors of the bottle represent the celebration of the dawn and glowing aureole of a rising sun. What I love most about this fragrance collection is how beautifully well-thought and detailed went behind into the design.
It’s counterpart fragrance continues the fragrance collection’s poetic story of a solar star beginning its slow ascent, giving off sparkling reflections of its vibrant colors onto the azure blue waves to highlight a beautiful summer day.
These parfums are nature-based and call for an intangible scent. The heart of this fragrance includes notes of passion fruit (my favorite!) and guava. You most certainly know you’re in for a treat if anything includes these two tropical fruits!
Although, the scent carries fruity notes they are softened by a floral scent that is combined with base notes of a lingering woodsy trail and vanilla, one of my favorite stimulating and nostalgic scent. Basically everything I that love was poured into bottle.
The L’eau D’Issey Summer Limited Edition Eau de Toilette is available for purchase at fine retail stores nationwide on May 1st, 2016.
