To celebrate the 30 year anniversary of L’Eau d’Issey, Issey Miyake reinvents the original to explore the pureness of water as it moves through petals of soft, fresh flowers with Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Eau & Magnolia. And if you’re a fan of delicate white florals, you need to try it…
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Eau & Magnolia is a radiant and soft floral fragrance with subtle aquatic nods. The Eau & Magnolia Intense starts with a sparkling burst of bergamot before the heart pays homage to the star note of magnolia, which reveals an elegant, velvety white floral aroma without becoming too intoxicating as it is refreshed by cool watery tones. To finish, Issey Miyake’s sandalwood accord adds a soft, warm woody tone that reminds me of sun-drenched decking.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Perfumer, Daphné Bugey, was inspired by nature and Issey Miyake’s commitment to the planet when creating Eau & Magnolia Eau de Toilette, which honours the moment water meets luminous magnolia petals. But the nod to the planet doesn’t stop there; the vegan fragrance is also made from 85% natural origin ingredients and housed within a 20% recycled glass bottle.
You Will Love This If…
If you’re a fan of the water-inspired scents of the 1992 fragrance collection, L’Eau d’Issey, you’ll love Eau & Magnolia. It celebrates the same fresh, floral and woody nuances but in an innovative new way. Compared to the original Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey, the Eau & Magnolia Eau de Toilette has a sparkling citrus start and it places a larger focus on white florals, as opposed to the traditional rose.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
Eau & Magnolia is spring in a bottle! Light, breezy and uplifting, it reminds me of an elegant lady in a crisp white suit.
Is Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Unisex?
Although Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Eau & Magnolia contains traditionally feminine white florals, anyone can enjoy its uplifting freshness.
What’s The Longevity Like?
Impressive! The Intense Eau de Toilette has the same light airiness as a traditional EDT but with the power of an Eau de Parfum. Overall, I found it lasted around four to five hours on my skin.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
If you’re looking for a piece that’s individual to you, L’Eau d’Issey Eau & Magnolia is for you. Each 100% natural soft wood cap is unique, so your lid will never be identical to any other bottle. This switch doesn’t *just* look good – it also reduces greenhouse emissions by 77% compared to the original caps. The iconic shape, however, remains the same; I love the natural and organic feel the new cap adds to the Issey Miyake collection.
