Scent: L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme

KIWI ME SOFTLY. Add a touch of exoticism to your olfactory charm this season.

Japanese fashion house Issey Miyake has released L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Pour l’Ete 2013, a limited-edition fragrance for men that’s bursting with fruity scents of kiwi, grapefruit and coriander. The man behind it is Alberto Morillas, a perfume luminary whose past creations count in Bvlgari BLV, Carolina Herrera 212 and Flower by Kenzo among all. For the packaging, the original shapes of the L’Eau d’Issey line persist, and sketches of bright green kiwi are splashed on the front, courtesy of Fabien Baron – founder of Baron & Baron and the editorial director of Interview magazine. The only bottle produced is the 125ml eau de toilette, enough to prolong the summery sensation for the rest of the year.
