A sweeter turn on the classic L'Eau D'Issey
I have the original Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey and couldn't wait to try out the Absolue. The classic has very crisp (ozonic) aquatic notes in it that I love that balances out with white floral notes. The Absolue takes the original, tones down the complex florals, and adds honey and vanilla to sweeten up the white floral blend. The crispness and aquatic notes are still there, but there is now a richness and intensity as well. You can wear this day or night, and although this is clearly a spring/summer perfume, this is amazing in winter as well. Wearing it outside on a very cold, snowy day brings out and intensifies the brightness and briskness of this perfume, making it actually my go to perfume for any walk in the snow. Love this flanker of the original and will add to my collection.
