Who doesn’t know L’Eau d’Issey by Japanese designer Issey Miyake? Thirty years after the release of this classic, ‘A Drop d’Issey’ sees the light. Nature has always played a major role in Issey Miyake’s work. In line with this, Issey Miyake presents the new feminine fragrance for women. A new fragrance for women, innovative, cheerful and optimistic. Just what we need in these uncertain times. Also for the lover of lilacs!
Perfumer Ane Ayo of A Drop d’Issey, learned the trade in the southern French epicenter of the Grasse perfumery, took her inspiration from the wonders of nature. About her source of inspiration for A Drop d’Issey she says poetically: “To reveal that which is not visible to the naked eye, to bring out every detail of a fragrance, as if you wanted the surprises of the heart, as it were. hide”.
Ayo is referring to the lilac, a ‘silent flower’ that she recomposed as if the flower had been taken apart to reveal its subtle secrets. The modern, full lilac flower is presented for A Drop d’Issey as a cross between nature and technology. Lilac scent cannot be easily extracted from the flower in nature, so it must be recreated by perfumers.
Top notes: Damask rose, almond milk
Heart: lilac, orange blossom, jasmine, star anise
Base: cedar, vanilla, musk, ambroxan
The lilac forms the heart of this super feminine composition and is surrounded by soft smelling almond milk in the top notes. To enhance the simulated sunny lilac, Ayo has combined a delicate orange blossom with rose to create a radiant bouquet with an uplifting floral heart. An accent of star anise also reflects the anise-like facets of the lilac. Jasmine’s active ingredients enhance the sunny, enveloping facets of the lilac. The scent is musky, enveloping and comforting, like a comfortable cocoon.
A Drop d’Issey comes in a round, glass drop-shaped flacon, designed to be placed on its side. The flacon is a design by the American designs Todd Bracher who previously designed flacons for Parfums Issey Miyake. Five percent of the glass comes from recycled glass.
Issey Miyake A Drop d’Issey Eau de Parfum is available in three sizes, namely 30, 50 and 90 ml. There is also a matching care line: a 200 ml very soft and refreshing Shower Cream, and a 200 ml strong hydrating Body Lotion.
Come closer to enjoy the A Drop d’Issey packaging: a radiant lens adorns the white box, like a three-dimensional reflection of a drop of water in clear, shiny silver.
