3.4 out of 5
My coworkers loved it
Don’t like how it smells.
Smells like an old lady. Strong alcohol smell.
delicate but powerful scent
Not for me
It's a very soft scent, but I'm not sure how else to describe it. I just know I probably won't wear it again. I may even give it to my grandmother, it's more of her type of scent. I like mines with a little sweetness. I love this brand, but not this scent.
Not my favorite, but not terrible
The description matched my liking, but i didn't love it on myself.
Liked it better once it dried down
I thought I would try this one out since I love Issey Miyake Nektar. And I adore Issey Miyake men on my husband. So when I first put this one on, I couldn't believe the sharp note. It was so heavy and smelled like old expired perfume. It took about 30 mins for that sharp note to go away and then it smelled just ok. It lasted a long time, but not my favorite at all. Not sure if I will wear it again, may pass it on.
Not my favorite Issey Miyake Scent
I did get some compliments but it was not my favorite Issey Miyake scent. I have worn multiple Issey Miyake scents but this was one that was unlike I've ever smelled for. It is a scent that I did get compliments about but I don't think I will wear it again.
a little too woodsy for me..
Love this scent
Not my taste
It’s not a bad scent just not for me
Why the cedar
This should be a cologne the fact that they put the cedar really was a deal breaker I gave it to my brother.
45 to 54
This perfume has a pretty floral scent with a little spice at the end. Unfortunately, it didn’t last through the day. Even though I’m 52 it still reminds of something an older woman would wear. It’s not for me. For these reasons I could only give it 3 stars!
Love this scent
Smells great on me.
I like it
45 to 54
I love all of Issey Miyake's perfumes, and was pleasantly surprised how different, yet wonderful, this perfume is.
35 to 44
Has a horrible smell. I like my first one the bottle that looks like a tower kinda..i hope this smell is sweeter

Love this fragrance
One of my favorites
I’m a issey fan but I do not like this one.. has a very aged/old lady smell.. after about 30 minutes it toned down and was tolerable but I don’t think I would use this scent again.
I didn't know what to expect with this one? But I do remember being quite fond of L'eau D'Issey back in my youth. This fragrance evokes the same, clean, light fresh scent of its predecessor without the Oriental notes. The Lemon Verbena note is quite prominent after you get past the horrible alcohol smell that most Eau de Toilette fragrances all have, and why i generally don't like any of them. I had to take away 1 star because this simply doesn't last and would be the main reason why I wouldn't purchase a full bottle of this on my own. However...if this came in a Eau de Parfum version, I might be tempted to buy it. If you like Mrs. Meyer's Lemon Verbena soap, then you'd probably like this!
It stinks it doesn’t smell good.
35 to 44
Issey Miyake is nice I like how it has a light sent, like fresh flowers. I will definitetly get this again..
I didn’t personally like the scent nor the sprayer. If you like the scent it does last!
Subtle but complex, perfect for daily wear and feels/smells so glam!
Not overpowering and lasts all day, very sexy
not a fan, but its not terrible
25 to 34
This is a very strong perfume
Kind of smells like an old lady. As the day went on it was better, but ehhhhh.
Don’t really like this at all
Smells like a grandmothers bathroom
It’s... okay. Kind of a weird scent.
25 to 34
Fresh and floral
I love this scent. I wasnt sure about it when I first smelled it, but after spraying it on every time I smell it I like it more.
25 to 34
Layered and musky
This scent has many layers, with an overall musky vibe. My husband loves it, but for me it's a little too aggressive. I tend to like sweeter, lighter scents so if musky is where you lean to, you'd love it.
65 or over
I've been trying new scents though Scentbird for about 7 months now, and so far, this one is my favorite!! I have the original L'Eau D'Issey fragrance and bath products and it's very pleasant but never grabbed me like this one---I've loved green fragrances like Lauder's "Aliage" and Balmain's "Vent Vert" since the 1970's, but the clean transparency of "A Scent" gives it a living quality--like being in a garden after a spring rain. There is a cool, wet, botanical aura about this fragrance but it also has great style and presence---it's is both organic and elegant and creates an almost zen atmosphere of calm and serenity around the wearer. I absolutely love it!! To quote Marie Condo---it "gives me joy!"
35 to 44
It’s a soft scent

I love this scent.

Let it marinate a bit before deciding
This scent is quite the dark horse. I wasn’t excited about it when I first sprayed it. It’s really”green” smelling and quite strong at first. I can see why people say it smells old lady-ish. However, on dry down, it gets complex as you can smell the green morph to light florals mingling with the green and then it just smells of soapy heaven. I couldn’t stop smelling myself! If you’re a fan of clean/soapy scents, definitely give this a whirl. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
Generic as its name
Light aquatic scent. Not much staying power. It's fine, but nothing special. It really is as generic as its name.
35 to 44
Wasn’t what I thought or expected but I do love the smell of this perfume just wish it was what I thought
I don't like the smell also the bottle leaked.
Clean and refreshing scent!
Absolutely love this scent I wear it when I go out with friends and I always gets asked about it. Love the Sweet floral tones
Smells nice but
Doesn’t last very long
This scent is just awful. It’s such an old lady smell
Light and sophisticated
No no no no. Very grandma/old lady-ish, but not powdery. Just like an old lady sitting next to you in church doused in perfume that singes your nose hairs. I might use as a linen spray, but won't wear ever as a perfume. Really don't care for this scent. It's clean not flowery, not really powdery but very much an old woman scent.
This fragrance reminds me a clean fresh floral breeze, very non intrusive just like, Wow you smell incredible ♥️ I immediately fell in love with this scent, every note falls together beautifully
Issey Miyake—- Pew
I wish I could return this !!
Smell pretty good
I Love This Perfume! I Love the Floral Warm Scent Which is Soft And Not Overpowering.... I Get Complements Everytime I wear it! 💗
I can't do better than the reviewer who said "it smells like an old lady who smokes too much."
Did not like
I did not like this smell at all.
Very light. I like fruity smells so if you’re like me and prefer fruitier smells you won’t like this smell to much.
Smells like an old lady that smokes too much.
Does not stay on long
Scent is nice but dont stay on long. Disappointed
Yuck, Yuck and Yuck. First spray So Strong and over barring. Very old lady sent. Wears off fast, in this case THANK GOODNESS it did. Many years ago I had a bottle of Issey Miyake and loved it. However this is the second bottle I’ve tried on scent bird by Issey Miyake and absolutely did not like. So long Issey Miyake.
Smells like an old lady!
I absolutely love this scent!
I usually do not like strong scents but somehow this one is different. It has the right amount of floral that I love.
Did not care for the scent at all. Some fragrances give me headaches and this is one. That's why I do the scent bird so I can try new fragrances without the high cost. I can always give it as a gift.
Literally if I could give this scent 0 stars I would. Searched endlessly for someone who would take it before I threw it in the garbage. Definitely an “older woman” scent.
This just isn't a scent for me...
I normally like sweet scents with a hint of something dark or devilish about them. I got this scent knowing full well that it was outside my comfort zone, but I wanted to expand my horizons. When you first put this on - it smells like you just walked through a Macys perfume counter area. It's an immediate harsh perfume-y smell. But stay with it for a minute. Because once that first attack is gone, it dries down quickly to something a bit bright - you can smell the verbena and a subtle floral that drifts through. I do smell a hint of honeysuckle, but the other floral scent is beyond me. I have hyacinths outside my front door and this doesn't smell like that - at least not the hyacinths I've smelled. It's fresher than that. Wear time is decent, but it's not a full day wear kind of thing unless you spray more generously than I. I pop two spritzes onto my wrists and it's almost completely gone by lunch. Overall if you like fresh bright smells with a note of florals this might be great for you. For me, it's just not what I'm looking for.
Just not me
Just not my scent style. seemed a little more old lady-ish
Love this scent
This scent really makes me feel fresh. I have gotten so many compliments with this one. It's floral notes and freshness are head turners for sure.
I think I may have found my signature scent. Finally!
ME TOO! <3 it
Swing and a miss.
I really didn’t care for this one. It is a really earthy scent. Not my thing
I was not impress with this scent at all. Awful smell, Try again scentbird.
i bought a huge bottle at marshalls a couple years ago for super cheap. i liked other Issey scents but this is my fave. i thought it was discontinued so i thought I'd check on Scentbird & here it is yay! Love it so happy i can buy more!
Strong sweet flowery scent
I have mixed feelings about the scent. I LOVED Cannabis and expected a similar scent. When this one arrived I spritz and it was strong for a while .....hours strong. I smell like it until morning. So if you like to keep that just spritzed strong scent go for it. As for me, I got a headache. I did get compliments....but it smells a bit grandma-ish to me.
soft smell would buy bigger bottle
Wrong scent sent
The delivery was days late, It ended up being a woman's perfume not a man's cologne not sure what brand but it wasn't what was on the label.
I was not at all please with this fragrance. It's too sweet and floral. It made me sneeze like crazy. I was expecting a nice soft fresh scent.
It smells like a scent for an older woman. Mislead
I’m so upset this is discription is so missleading. This is the 3rd bottle of perfume I have tried from scentbird and I even read It said fresh and clean ,, and citrusy ( bull ) that’s what I say or smells like my grandma simular to white diamonds nasty!!! Old lady perfume perfect for 60s and up not for 30 year olds . So angry I’m gonna try one more scent and if I’m displeased I’m cancling my subscription. So upset ( please give a better discription on them people
I don’t like fruity scents and this is not fruity at all very deep
I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
I almost love this. It's very strong and interesting. I've had bad luck with my past five perfumes and it's made me disappointed, however I got this one and I love it. It's a pleasant surprise. I think it's nice and floral and isn't too 'ooh what is that strange smell?' it's more 'who is that? They smell really nice'. If you've had bad luck like me, I think you should give this a try although I don't believe it lasts as long as I'd like.
The scent is so sweet, too much sweet for me. Not a light fragrance as I anticipated based on the description.
I'm not really a fan of this scent. It is light and clean, but it also reminds me of old lady perfume. lol It also doesn't last the entire day so you will have to spray it again later on in the day. Sadly, I probably wouldn't buy it again. :/
Will buy. Love it
Did not like this, and I love all scents issey miyake.
Love it delicate fresh feminine perfume I give it a 10
Just perfect! Clean, floral yet gender neutral
It certainly is 'a scent'...
Too sweet and similar to an Alfred Sung scent.
I don't like it at all and I love this brand. What a disappointment.
Love this scent.
I love it!!!
I empited the bottle in two weeks. This is a must have! Crisp and fresh. Great for my migraines - no problems.
i LOVE IT!!
This scent is so GREAT!!!!... I love it.... not overpowering.... but makes you feel so confident knowing you smell so good.... got nice compliments.
This is such a great scent!!!!! I love it so feminine .... not overpowering but it makes you feel good because you smell great... got great compliments.
I love the scent. I don't know if it's just me , or that maybe I don't use enough ,but the scent fades. ...
I was super excited to get my new scent, and upon opening and spraying it, I LOVED IT! Then after about 2 minutes, I really hated it. There's a scent that's in it that makes me sick to my stomach. After wearing it for an hour I couldn't smell it anymore. I think I will re-gift this one.
I have to loot Lee love the scent! And everyone who smells it comments about it definitely will re-order this fragrance!
I love L'Eu di Issey so I thought I'd try this. It's nice but not as good. I would probably order it again.
I actually used this scent all the way down. I loved it. It is a bit mature and Issey Miyake is known for the "chemical" smell. But I personally like it. His scents are so different. I wore this one all of the time and I received compliments on it.
I felt sick after smelling it. the smell took a long time to wear off
It was an ok scent kinda powerful stayed on all day so I guess that's a good thing!
I was surprised. Because I love Issey Miyake the perfume I was excited to try this one but it was not sweet or soft in any way. Very strong citric which is not good with my body chemistry
i was not impressed with this scent at all. it smelled like it would be more suited for someone in there 60s. def not for me
I must say... I AM IN LOVE!! this scent is so me!
Does not smell like the discription at all, AT ALL. This is not fresh or clean smelling. It's strong and heavy. Can definitely see why this didn't do well for them. Also, I just realized this scent is 20 dollars at Walmart and Scentbird is how much?? .... We're suckers.
Great scent. I have received many compliments on this fragrance. I like citrusy fresh scent and this smells so fresh and clean with a hint of flirty. Highly recommend... ps I don't think it smells like grandmas unless your grandmas perfume game is strong :D
I liked it but it reminds me of my grandmother's perfume so it's not something I could wear often for that reason, I gifted it to a friend.
Smells nothing like the description. Reminds me of a cheap fragrance from Walmart.
The scent wasn't very bad when I put it on although it wasn't my particular type. It doesn't last long at all though.
Love it! In a class of its own!
Not very impressed. The smell was not for me.
Dissatisfied... So far I haven't received any scent that fits the profile that I submitted...😕
Kind of old ladyish. Very strong.
Quite strong but has a nice scent
Did not like this scent AT ALL. It was way too strong and caused my allergies to act up.
A little strong but I works. I like it.
nice light scent
Sorry but this is not Issey Miyake, you guys completely swapped this out for something else. I'm a huge fan of that scent and this is not it AT all. What a huge disappointment seriously.
Not for me. Maybe someone older.
