A new limited edition of L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme was announced in 2015:
L’Eau d’Issey Oceanic Expedition
L’Eau d’Issey Oceanic Expedition is woody / aquatic with Yuzu in the top note (East Asian lemon hybrid of wild mandarin and Citrus ichangensis), associated with notes of bergamot and petitgrain thus creating a cool breeze. At the heart of the fragrance we find Cascalone (an olfactory molecule that recreates the smell of a sea breeze) enriched with spicy ginger. Sandalwood and Ambrox (dry woody note) will bring elegance and personality to the perfume, they then form the base of the perfume.
Oceanic expedition is a pure balance between the power of the air and sea currents.
Issey Miyake is one of the first Japanese designers to organize a fashion show in Europe (1973). Before creating his own Couture house with the eponymous name, Issey Miyake worked for Guy Laroche or Hubert de Givenchy. Issey Miyake’s creations embrace movement and the lightness of the body in order to tend towards the democratization of clothing which must be a practical and of course aesthetic support. Issey Miyake explains that he “tried to make a fashion that is neither Japanese nor Western”.
Issey Miyake’s perfumes are the result of a collaboration with the Beauté Prestige International group.
Oceanic Expeditions, new version of Eau d’Issey pour Homme: “The sensation of strength and freshness of a mountain torrent” in homage to the force of water, Issey Miyake has created a masculine, fresh and powerful. Eau d’Issey for men has established itself as a unique elegant reference in the world of men’s perfumery: with strength and balance, this great juice goes straight to the point. It follows on from the Eau d’Issey Miyake Homme adventure. Indeed, the Eau d’Issey for men Sport is an adventure in Antarctica: “When the Eau d’Issey for men warms up and intensifies its wake” and the Nuit d’Issey: “captures the force of the night”. At the heart of a powerful and mysterious nature, under the influence of the moon, the senses are awakened, the emotions are amplified.
