Issey Miyake hasn’t finished making fashion bend to his will. “I never look at the past when creating. I always conduct my research for the future”– Issey Miyake
Just like his fashion, his fragrance creations are universal, in harmony with life, accessible to all. Issey Miyake has always created fragrances for oneself: timeless, unique fragrances, which express emotion. Each fragrance has a simple, rigorous formula; it is clear, structured, giving free rein to pure emotion. The essential is the ultimate luxury, excellence revealed in the nothing.
His fragrances lack arrogance and have a poetic modernity that captures the spirit of the quest and exploration. An exploration of oneself, firstly: one’s emotions, feelings. The experience of oneself through fragrance.
Once Upon A Time There Was A Trilogy For Men
Globally, Issey Miyake has launched Expeditions, a new trio of limited edition flankers for men. Three men’s fragrances, three scents that became classics almost as soon as they were launched.
- L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme. The nose Jacques Cavallier set his dreams afloat when he created this woody aquatic scent as a fragrance to breathe in. This fragrance, which has become a natural classic, introduced a new pulsating aquatic freshness capable of quenching one’s thirst for authenticity.
- L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Sport. The initial structure of L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme is complemented by a vibrant burst of grapefruit and mint (also created by perfumer Jacques Cavallier). In an appealing reference to high-tech sport, the smoked glass of the bottle recalls sunglasses, while the stopper looks like a non-slip grip. A great olfactory – and poetic – frisson.
- Nuit d’Issey. This charismatic composition, created by the duo of noses Dominique Ropion and Loc Dong (IFF), succeeds in slipping a ray of light into the night by combining bergamot with grapefruit, which offers its own interpretation of the moon’s radiance. The mystery comes from a leathery accord enlivened with spices, and grounded by textured base notes (black woods, patchouli, incense). The bottle retains its shape and acquires a deep black colour in which is reflected a halo of moonlight.
The Journey Is The Most Beautiful Emotion
For Issey Miyake , an expedition is first and foremost a wonderful inner experience, a journey to the ends of oneself, an inner pole as polar explorer Jean-Louis Etienne described it so well. The brand’s core fragrances for men (L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme and Nuit d’Issey) are released into the fresh air and suddenly explode with an olfactory purity and a new freshness. “The greatest traveller is he who has taken a tour once around himself” –Confucius
L’eau D’issey Pour Homme Expedition Oceanic:
A flanker to 1994’s L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, inspired by an ocean journey. The simplicity of the construction creates fluidity… The movement of the boat, perhaps. I’m there! – Alberto Morillas, Firmenich perfumer
Nuit D’issey Expedition Austral: The Freshness Of A Southern Night
A flanker to 2012’s L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Sport, inspired by a journey to the arctic circle.
I wanted to recreate an icy freshness, mysterious and attractive, of the precious moment when the sky is crossed by bands of sparkling light, when the light no longer comes from the aurora australis alone. – Loc Donc, perfumer, IFF
