I know this is a classic scent but honestly it just isn’t for me. Very accurate description though, I guess I’m still trying to learn what I like but this wasn’t it. If you’re a big fan of florals then this is for you.

No bueno Absolue
I feel bad to leave a negative review on a scent because after all, scents are a matter of preference... but I don’t want ScentBird algorithm to recommend anything like this to me. It feels like a traditional scent from grandmas collection in the 80s... an overpowering of musk and alcohol and maybe: amber? I definitely prefer more lighter and fresher scents than this. I do smell notes of white flowers upon dry down in this scent which is lovely and why I tried it but no I could not bear the strength of the base formula for it. IG: @emerald.pretty 😇

This smells sooooooo good omg. I’m so happy that I finally found a scent that I absolutely love and can’t get enough of. It’s sweet smelling but it has a soft musk smell you can definitely smell the warm vanilla and amber but it’s not strong at all. Overall the best scent.. love love love !!!

It’s okay just too flowery
It’s light and airy, but has a very strong rose undertone. I like it as it’s still a modern floral scent. It has good sillage and lasts on skin for 5 hours and clothes 7 hours.

another great Issey Miyake scent
I love it. I have yet to find any scent by Issey Miyake that I do not like. It's floral, very sexy, and not too heavy. There's enough of the deeper, heavier notes to keep it grounded and from being too loud like an estee lauder. I love it. I would wear it daily and for date nights.

Smells like the 90's!
Smelled this on a client and it was so pretty I had to get some to try on myself. Very heady and sunny. Reminds me of Elizabeth Arden's Sunflower fragrance if you want an idea of it's tone. I wear this to work and it has a decent staying power and makes me smile whenever I catch a whiff

Great scent...Just not for me
I am a big fan of the original Issey Miyake fragrance for women so I wanted to try it's cousin. This scent was just too light for me. Maybe I'll pull it out and try it when it really warms up outside but for now, this early spring where the days and nights are still really cool it just doesn't mix right with my chemistry. My sister loves it but I won't let her have it LOL

The Original ISSEY MIYAKE still has my heart.
I was really excited to try some new ones by ISSEY MIYAKE while this is one is nice, it has a warmer smell compared to the original that I love so much. I am still trying this one not sure it will be a long term relationship or not. Nice scent though.

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.

Not my classic L'eu D'Issey, but nice change
I've been wearing L'eu D'Issey for over a decade. Nothing comes close. Its my signature scent. D'Issey Absolue is a lighter and more powdery version than the classic Issey, but it adds a fun, hip twist to my fragrance collection. I've always wanted to try his other scents and so far, not disappointed. Nice delicate floral scent appropriate for everyday, very subtle but noticeable.

Skin so soft?
Very pungent when first applied and fades into a powdery and floral smell reminiscent of Skin So Soft...my husband loved and raved when he first walked into the room; however, five minutes later he was making fun of the “granny” smell permeating the house. My daughter is 4 and wandered into the room and asked “what’s the stinky smell” This is a big miss on the first round for me

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.

I took a gamble with this fragrance, never having heard of this brand before, or smelling any fragrances, and it did not disappoint. This is a beautiful fragrance, fresh, and aquatic, perfect for summer.
