Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey IGO Eau de Toilette Review

Ensure you’re never without the iconic aquatic-floral scent of L’Eau d’Issey for women with Issey Miyake IGO, a perfume that’s been designed with travel in mind.


The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…

Featuring the original L’Eau d’Issey fragrance, IGO allows you to enjoy the perfume wherever you are. Thanks to its innovative 2-in-1 design, you can enjoy the fragrance at home by using the sleek, simplistic base flacon, while the removable, travel-friendly silver cap allows you to top-up while out and about. The most impressive part? The impressive design has been perfected after four years of research and development, and has even been subject to a patent application.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of the original L’Eau d’Issey – which has been loved by women since its 1992 debut – but you’re after a more travel-friendly and innovative edition, IGO Eau de Toilette is made for you.

The fragrance within remains unchanged; created by Jacques Cavallier, the water-inspired scent feels instantly fresh, light, crisp and sweet as you breathe it in. It opens with aquatic lotus and delicate rose before lily blends with a flurry of fresh florals for a sweet, pretty feminine heart. Finally, a base of precious woods creates a comforting, sensual tone.


Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Smells Similar To:

L’Eau d’Issey has a highly fresh, floral scent that feels like a bouquet of spring flowers or a blossoming field of wildflowers. It has a similar crisp, floral feel to Escape by Calvin Klein.


Is Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Unisex?

Although it does have a sweet feel to it, thanks to the floral facets, L’Eau d’Issey always feels very light and airy to start, which can appeal to all genders.


What’s The Longevity Like?

For an Eau de Toilette, L’Eau d’Issey is incredibly long-lasting; you can still smell its subtle base hours after first applying.


What’s The Story?

IGO is an exciting new take on L’Eau d’Issey that’s made for the 21st century. The bottle’s silver, ultra-lightweight cap can be pulled off to allow you to carry up to 20ml of the fragrance around wherever you are, while the 60ml base remains at home.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

IGO’s elegant, iconic and stripped-back bottle mirrors the original fragrance in its look, but the lockable silver cap is made more prominent in this addition.

We love that L’Eau d’Issey’s frosted glass cone and metal-look cap remains nearly identical to the original as it continues to paint the same picture as the original; the design has been created to depict the moon perched atop the Eiffel Tower.
