Love
At first I was skeptical when the first spray went on (could mostly smell the white flowers), but it dried down to a really pretty, clean, slightly sweet smell, and slightly powdery . The clean smell is due to the aquatic note, and the sweet is from the honey note. Not usually a fan of florally perfumes, but this is really nice. I don't know what about it people are saying it smells like grandma perfume (I'm in my 20s). It could be the initial floral smell. But it isn't a fruity kid/teen perfume either...

It's ok...
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

Floral sweet
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.

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.

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 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!

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.

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.
