I wore L'eau D'issey years ago and it has always been one of my favorites, even though it seemed to fade quickly. I was hoping the Absolue would be updated and a bit stronger for lasting. I do believe it lasts a bit longer, but still becomes faint after a couple hours. When fresh in the morning, I receive so many compliments....'fresh, clean, like shampoo' and I find it refreshing. This is the perfect scent for women that want to smell great without smelling like they are wearing perfume! But....if you want to smell great at 7am and 7pm without a refresh, it may not be for you. Dry down is simple, not much morphing for me, then very faint after a few hours.
