Lemon Verbena Hyacinth Lemon Galbanum Jasmine
Description
A Scent by Issey Miyake is a fragrance by the house of Issey Miyake, and it arrives on the market in August 2009. This is a minimalistic, simple and clear fragrance inspired by Japanese mountains. Behin its transparency, this perfume hides a strong floral wave of jasmine, hyacinth and cedar. Freshness is added by French verbena and lemon, which make this fragrance more feminine. Aromas of galbanum add fondling, balmy and warm trail.

This scent does not seem to last long on the body. Usually when I wear anything I can smell it on myself or someone else will notice and say something. No one noticed, not one person. In fact, I forgot I had it on a couple of times. While growing up there were ladies that smoked and then would spray themselves with perfume. This scent reminded me those times. Not a fan.

I like the undertones on A Scent, but the hyacinth seems to be the most prominent part on me. If you love springtime and floral scents, you will love this one.

I have always loved Eau de Issey Miyake, so I wanted to try this new fragrance, didn't hate it but wasn't as subtle as Eau de Issey M. I am happy to use it but will not re-order.

Highly disappointed! Not what I was anticipating at all. The lemon and cedar seem almost non-existent but the hyacinth and jasmine are overpowering. This is more floral than clean, citrusy and woodsy. My 3 year old asked what smelled like pee!! The blatant honesty lol!

I just got this scent and tested it on the back of my hand. I actually love it. It's got a somewhat musky, floral scent but it is nice for fall. I would agree with other reviewers that this is for a woman that is in her late 30's, into her 40's, or even older. It is definitely not a traditionally young person's scent.

Issey Miyake is a very nice rich scent. I like it, but in my opinion, it is a scent for a more seasoned, mature woman in her sophisticated 60's.

This is it, the fresh, clean floral I've been looking for! This is supposed to smell like the mountains of Japan, and my husband said the scent does actually remind him of the temples in Japan. He lived there for 3 years and misses it dearly, so this will be a special perfume in our house. Be warned, there is nothing warm about this scent. It is not even a clean linen, warm meadow kind of scent. It is the cool crisp breeze coming down from the mountains onto freshly bloomed spring flowers. There's still dew on the grass. Spring has sprung but there's still a slight chill in the air. That's this fragrance!

I unfortunately had this stolen out of my car before I got to get a good impression of it. The one time I was able to use it, it seemed super fresh and delicate. I loved it while I had it, though the longevity wasn't the best. You can go very wrong with Hyacinth, some perfumes with it smell very much like rotting flowers. This perfume definitely captures that fresh spring time scent of blooming hyacinth blossoms in the garden which are my absolute favorite flower.
