Love this smell
This fragrance is soft but lingering. Has a bit of a powdery smell. A lot of floral notes. It reminds me of my mom. I wear it for food luck.
I absolutely love Issey Miyake-
Love classic Issey Miyake, this one felt thick and too musky/strong for me
Golden honey, tender jasmine, little fountain with lotus flowers in the garden..This scent takes me to the sunny, relaxing summer day. It is beautiful feminine and sophisticated scent.
Smells nice BUT
Smells nice but it smells like my grandma. "baby powdery"
I love this scent! Always receive compliments that I smell sexy when I wear it!
Love this light fragrance!
Issey Miyake is always a great choice
I love Issey Miyake perfumes, I feel like you can't go wrong with their products.. they always smell great!
the only perfume I have liked on scent bird
This is very similar to the original Issey miyake but with light floral notes. Very feminine and light.
This turned me on to floral fragrances
I was surprised by how much I loved this fragrance. It's undeniably floral, but not overtly sweet. It's elegant, but casual. I will need to order it again, maybe a full bottle.
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
not for me
I did not like this at all, too floral, not me at all.
Love this scent
Everyone is always asking me what perfume im wearing. love, love, love this scent!!!
Love it! So spring
Compliments all the time everyone asks what I’m wearing
I really love this sent. Wanted to try issy for women after i bought it for my husband And it did not disappoint. Feminine light a beautiful scent. Slightly fruity. Great for spring. Day or night wear. Going to buy a big bottle for sure
Absolutely loved this scent the only negative thing I could say but has nothing to do with scent is sprayer is too misty i feel like it prevents from it staying on longer
Such a beautiful scent, a bit strong but softens to a lighter scent. Really pretty.
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.
Tuberose,honey, amber. That’s all i got. Very light for a Parfum
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.
This is definitely the most floral scent you can find! A little too much for me...
Issey miyake l'eau d'isssey absolue
It was just ok. I definetly didnt wear it more than once a week. There was a strong after scent. I really wanted the first scent i smelled ro last as opposed to the one that lingered. Its a winter scent
I always had a bottle of this and then ran out. It became hard to find, but I have it back with SCB! Still get compliments on this light scent! Love it always!
Smell great and wifey loves it
Very floral at first, but it dried down to a honey, amber and slightly powdery scent . Im not usually big on florals but i loved this.
Not that it’s bad it just doesn’t smell as good as I thought
Not a fresh smell. Has a old grandmother type of scent. Don’t last either.
I didn't really like it. Kinda has an "old lady" vibe lol Smelled a little better after I had it on for a little while. Personally I wouldn't purchase it.
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 got my first scent today, this one. I am in love!
Did not like this perfume
Too strong. Had a very old lady smell.
I like this scent. It has a floral, sweet smell. It's strong when you first put it on but it fades pretty quick. Not really a "date" perfume.. more of an everyday scent.
Smells so yummy!!! Very delicate and feminine, a great start to my subscription!
It was not what I was expecting but it is a really good perfum. I just think it does not match to much with young people since it looks really classic.
Not to strong or sweet. Love how light it is and perfect for date night 😉
this has been my favorite so far. light scent, not over powering, would take it every month
Hi no matter where I am when I spray on this delectable scent I get the greatest comments ..” like omg , what is the name of your perfume?” This at the market more men then women have commented .. and at my bank men and women tellers and greeters say I love when you show up because you smell so good . That being said “ L’eau D’issey Absloue is my bomb perfume love it💞
One of my favorites so I started with it!
I’ve always loved this perfume. It’s one of mine and my sisters favorite! Love it
It’s a nice fragrance. Not too strong . My daughter likes it and she doesn’t like anything. Lol.
I LOVE THIS FRAGRANCE!! This is a floral sweet smell and it’s lovely, not strong at all.
I love this scent and get tons of complements on it when I use it Its now one of my favorite ones now!!
I love this scent!! Nice and light!!
Love this sweet floral scent! Not too florally for this sweet scent lover!
I loved this fragrance. It's very diverse because I could wear a small amount during the day at work and not smell overwhelmed, or add a little more for evening and it take on a whole different personality. I will be buying a bottle of this for keeps!
This fragrance is definitely for the grown and sexy. This in my opinion, is for a romantic dinner date..sharing the love
Smells like old lady I hated this perfume
I love this scent it stays on all day
I loved thos scent. Absolutly perrrrrfect! Im so happy!
Absolutely love the scent! I've been complemented on it everywhere I go, it's clean and fresh smelling. It's not overpowering… Very light. It stays with you for a long time. Will definitely buy this fragrance !
Really love the smell. I will definitely buy this one again.
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 love issey miyake scents and I really liked this one but not my favorite the floral scent it's a bit too much and the smell was kind of heavy for daily use. Might be a better choice for a night out/date in the fall
I really love this fragrance it's soo lite and floral. I can't wait to try another ISSEY MIYAKE
really liked this perfume! the main notes i could detect were the freesia and honey. if you like sweet florals and the smell of freesia, definitely check this one out! got a couple of compliments already and i have only been using this for a week or so!
I love it , it was a perfect scent. I cant wait until next month 😍
To me, this fragrance was a very floral scent. A pleasant background scent but didn't have the staying power on me. Very happy for Scentbird to allow me to sample before committing to a huge bottle, can't wait for next month!
I didn't get the original order but the customer service team shipped out a replacement and I love this perfume I cant wait for my next month loving this subscription so far.
I really enjoy Issey Miyake scents. They are calming and just sit so well on the skin! Elegant and not strong. This scent reminds me of when I was young and walking in the domes in MKE and reminded every time of flowers and desert! I highly recommend this to anyone!
At first I didn't really like the smell but I think it's because I got used to a different perfume. I tried it again and I love it! Everyone always compliments me on how good I smell. I'm really glad I gave it another try.
This was a sweet honey like bubbly sent it was okay but something about it was a little off for me
Someone was wearing this when I first smelled it and it smelled great. I added it to my queue and when I began to wear it, it still smelled wonderful....but it also smelled DIFFERENT! Glad I have the chance with Scentbird to sample before making the leap to a full size bottle.
Very nice, I've had this before and wanted some more. When I can do this again I will get some more. Thank you so much!!
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. I don't think I'll be adding this to my collection though, as I prefer other summery fragrances over this one, but its nice and easy to wear.
Issey is one of my favorite lines of perfume.. I get so many compliments everytime I wear it. People ALWAYS a to know what I'm wearing.
It didn't last long I'm use to perfumes with an oil base. Dissipated very quickly.
This is one of my FAVORITE scents!!! It smells sweet and lasts all day!
The fragrance grew on me. I would purchase a small bottle.
Like this scent a lot. very nice.
I love this scent , had tried it years before but wasn't sure so when I saw it I decided to try it again.
Loved it so much that I went and bought a bottle for myself for Mother's Day!
I DO NOT like this at all; it was my first scent and its awful. I was trying to get something new and different and trusted the Issey Miyake brand; the original Issey Miyake is the best; this is horrible and a waste of a scent and I will never wear it. It smells like something Glade would make for the toilet. The example said people who wear this also like DKNY Be Delicious which I have and love - this is NOWHERE in comparison. I love perfume and have many, lots; I'm addicted to perfume and love purchasing it, this is a major disappointment. This gets no hearts, if that was an option.
I do not like this AT ALL.....it smells like "old lady" perfume. I feel like I wasted $15. :(
I don't like that fact that this scent doesn't last all day...
Nice and subtle. Honey scented, without being too sweet. A person could wear this doing something outdoors or indoors and it would be appropriate.
Love this perfume! Smells so good!
Love it ! I love all the scents !
Received this instead of the perfume in my queue, but I like it! It's light and reminds me of high school. Since that was a long time ago, I'm a fan. :)
My husband loved this scent on me. I was sick when I got it, so I couldn't smell much....but now my senses are back and I enjoy this one. I wish it lasted longer tho and I probably wouldn't go out and buy it :(
It's nice but a bit too grown up for my preferences. I like lighter scents...floral, citrusy, or warm vanilla.
starts off a little strong, but fades nicely. similar to other issey miyake scents, but spicier.
Not for me. The strong floral fragrance reminds me of a soap shop.
Love this scent. It's lighter than the original Isley Miyake L'eau D'issey. Very clean. Love this one too
I liked the sent... but a bit too floral
Never received. This is the second time this has happened. I have only had my subscription for 3 months.
Smells nice but not a huge fan of the scent. Definitely something I believe my grandmother would enjoy over me.
didn't mesh well with my funk buthe still a clean smell
It smells nice doesn't seem much different from the original..
Very comforting and mature scent❤️
I did not like it as much as the other 2
Just not myet style. I like it but don't love it. A little too flowery for me.
Loved it bought the 3 oz. bottle!
Smells super good! Strong honeysuckle scent. Fades pretty quick, within an hour.
Very nice fragrance. I'm so pleased.
it smells okay not in my top 10 its kind of an older woman perfume
Absolutely the best! Comes on a little strong, but once it's set it becomes magical! Compliments left and right! Will be making a future full sized purchase.
This scent is wonderful. In my Better Half's words. I don't know What that's made of...........but...........we will find out later. Another late start to work, lol❤️
Loved it, my boyfriend loves it, he kept asking what I was wearing everyday day I wore it. Always said how good i smelled
This is my favorite go to scent. This smells amazing on me!!! Love, Love, Love it!
It has a very strong smell at first but once it settles in it's very nice.
It is a little bit to musty for my taste.
too sweet, more appropriate for a younger woman
Gave it away. Its a little too musky for me
Love,love, love! I wore this scent for Christmas and was asked several times what I had on. I will be getting the full bottle.
I've never tried this perfume before so I was excited waiting to see whether I'd like or not. Well I'm not disappointed at all I love it! It's rather a sexy scent not too strong just the type I love
Absolutely one of my favorites.
It's ok a little strong, I cAll the smell grandma smell. But it's still nice
One of my favorites! I wore this scent in my 20's!!
Not a fan. I use to wear original Issey all the time in my 20's, and after reading all the great reviews, I was super excited to try this one. It was so bad (to me), it went straight into the trash...wasn't even worth saving for a random, bottom of the purse spray. I was so bummed I had to wait another month to get a new scent. Very disappointed.
Absolutely love. A friend of mine had use this and I decided to try it and the smaller before purchasing. I get compliments all the time
not a favorite but it really smells wonderful
I love this one!!! It smells amazing!!
Really like this perfume used to wear it in my teenage years loved it then
Love the smell but doesn't seem to last after several hours
I didn't care that much for the scent and my bottle was to big for my case.
loved the smell so fresh and long lasting
Very feminine and love the musk notes
Totally love this fragrance. This makes me feel so sexy. I get a compliment every time I wear this. Can't wait for my second scent, because I love this one so much, I am so excited about scent bird.
OMG... I have used this everyday since it arrived. It smells heavenly very light yet BOLD
Great scent.... long lasting fragrance
It has a flower scent not my favorite
First I loved it, but after wearing it the whole day, I know it's not my scent.
Light and floral, clean scent. Very feminine. I keep it in my purse and enjoy it all day! My only complaint is that it isn't very "deep", not many layers.
it is sexy and classy it is my new fav
It seems to be very popular but then again, I tend to NOT like popular scents it's OK and can actually be quite lovely but it's nothing but a close skin scent on me Zero silliage and zero longevity. Not worth it to me.
You can never go wrong with any of the Issey Miyake scents. I've loved this brand for decades now, it's yet to disappoint me. Such an amazing clean light fragrance from the first spray to the last.
Fresh and unique! Lots of compliments
This has always been one of my favorites!
This scent is very lovely and soft on me, however it was quite strong and sharp on my friend. So it does change significantly depending on the person wearing it. Although I really enjoyed it, I think this is more of a summer scent, and - it does wear off VERY quickly.
This is a lovely floral. It does wear off pretty quickly. This isn't my signature set, but each month I feel like I'm getting closer!
AWESOMMEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i want to smell like this scent forever LOL
I have gotten so many compliments on this scent!!! I just love it, Scentbird, has not let me down since I've joined
It was ok. A bit too musky for me. I will still wear it but not a total fan.
Love this scent so fresh and clean . One of my favorites. Very pleased this month 😁💕💕💕love scentbird thank you again.
Smells amazing. I definitely have plans on purchasing the full size bottle.
I ❤ every issey miyake i have. This one is light & clean yet seductive with a slight woodsy smell...its amazing
L'eau D'issey Absolue is light and soft scent and it is good for any season and everyday wear.
What smelled like a combo of floral and baby powder made for a really terrible mix. I really disliked this scent (for me). I pray I just got a bad batch because this was awful.
love the way this perfume smells on me.
Was nothing like what I expected. Did not like it at all. Gave me a instant headache.
It was OK but a little too musky and spicy for me...definitely looking for a lighter, sweeter scent next time.
Light and soft scent! Great for everyday wear.
Smells wonderfully floral and lasts a long time. My Fiancee begged me to buy the full size, he loved it so much on me!
This scent is EVERYTHING! I absolutely love it already. Definitely gonna be one of my staples.
I so love my new Perfume, will definitely recommend this one too. Thank you!
This scent is just ok in my opinion. I liked it at first but gives me a headache throughout the day. I prefer woodsy or spicier fragrances.
Love the scent, lasts most of the day.
My perfume bottle does not work :(
I love this floral sexy exotic scent
I'm in love with this Sent!! its absolutely perfect!
Smells amazing. Like what heaven must smell like.
I am so in love with this scent. One for my wish list to my kids/boyfriend for my birthday coming up. Thanks Scentbird! I hate buying perfumes that I cant smell. Some places don't even provide samplers before you buy. Thank God for Scentbird! I have already referred over 20 friends/family
not working well for me and not as floral as I'm used to with other fragrances I've enjoyed by Issey Miyake.
i love this scent. I love the male scent and couldn't wait to get mine.
Very light fragrance. I really like it.
The notes are definitely on the lighter side. It's a perfect fragrance for an office atmosphere.
I didn't hate this scent but I didn't fall in love with it either. It's a nice scent but not really anything memorable about it. Wouldn't purchase again.
This perfume is amazing...it fits so well with my body chemistry
It was too light, I did not like it at all!
I've always loved this sexy yet clean scent.
Very nice smelling scent. Long lasting, adult, sexy.
I love this fragrance. It's very sensual.
I have only been wearing this scent for about a week during the day. I love the floral mix and, although it isn't an overly sexy scent, it has a very mature feeling to the mix, so I might be saving this for an evening summer pick.
Smells beautiful.... love this scent
This is a nice scent sweet and light
Love it! All their perfumes are just beautiful 💞
Love, Love, Love it. I will be buying full size next month for my mother and myself.
Great smell but doesn't last long. So spray liberally.
I didn't even receive it yet it's pass due and now I'm about to be charged for the second scent. Disappointed!
Smell light and flowerful.... I love it.
