Issey Miyake L'Eau Bleue D'Issey Pour Homme EDT main notes
This cologne has to be my least favorite of all the Issey Miyake scents. The scent is overwhelmingly woody, and is quite harsh. It is reminiscent of a cheap quality "elderly man cologne" which can be purchased at the local drug store or a Wal-Mart. Traditional Issey Miyake, or Issey Miyake Sport and Nuit are much better options in my opinion.
I tried this once before and got RAVE reviews from ladies. It's been a while so I thought to try again and BAM the ladies return asking again "Whoa, who are YOU!?" So although a lot guys say it smells like bug spray & flowers, the LADIES seem to REALLY LIKE IT! That's what matters to ME!
It's just OK. It's too overpowering at first, even with just one spray. Don't love the dominant high notes, which remind me of bug spray. They do wear off and the lasting scent about 45 mins later is better; still not great, though.
Just noticed that this "wrote a review " form asks me to rate "so that other women know how to choose". Of course your sig other could buy your scents but this is "pour Homme". Fresh, clean and aquatic smell. I already had a favorite that I want to still wear frequently but this scent has me steady picking up this tester. I'm going to try a few more of Miyake's, so far I love two of his men's line.
The beginning notes are extremely strong at first. I space my spray out by a minute or two to let the first settle, then continue on. It smells great later on the shirts the morning after and a woman will definitely not forget this scent. It's finish is delightful and lingers long after. It ends herbal and spicy but with a slight sweetness to it that makes you want to smell it over and over again.
