My Review of L’eau D’Issey Pour Homme
L’eau D’Issey Pour Homme is a woody aquatic scent, comprising of the top notes of Coriander, cypress, mandarin orange, Yuzu, Tarragon, Lemon Verbena, Lemon, Sage, Bergamot, and Calone. The middle notes are that of nutmeg, Mignonette, Ceylon Cinnamon, Bourbon Geranium, Safron, Lily-of-the-valley, and Blue Lotus, and Base notes of Tahitian Vetiver, Musk, Cedar, Sandalwood, Amber and Tobacco.
L’eau D’Issey Pour Homme is a perfect everyday scent, and you can’t go wrong with this. This been around for over 20 year, yet it doesn’t smell dated and continues to be a major seller amongst men’s fragrances. The beautiful composition of citrus, floral, and herbal notes make it a true classic.
L’eau D’Issey Pour Homme is reminiscent of sitting in a freshly mowed lawn on a sunny morning, with the beautiful green smell of freshly cut grass in the air, with a glass of lemonade in hand. The fresh scent is perfect for day wear, specially in spring and summer, but can be easily worn in evening as well. The opening is very citrusy, mainly lemon and bergamot, along with the herbal touch from cypress and sage. The florals and spices are very downplayed, and the aquatic notes of yuzu make it very sparkling. The base is amazing, mainly vetiver and woods, with a lingering citrus flavour. L’eau D’Issey Pour Homme is like stepping out of a shower, so fresh and clean. It can be pulled off by anyone, of any age, and for any occasion.
The performance of L’eau D’Issey Pour Homme is brilliant, with longevity of 10 hr+, and perfect sillage. I can still smell it on my husband in evening, after whole day at work, and he is a light sprayer and never reapplies. This is rare for a summer scent, that too a citrus based. The citrus usually fades off too quick in other fragrances, but here it starts from the top notes, and lasts till the very end. Thumbs up!!! So if you do like citrus and aquatic notes, this is the go to scent for you.
Will I recommend it? Hell yes!!! If you are getting a good deal online, you can safely blind buy it, as no one will dislike it, it is the perfect crowd pleaser without becoming boring or generic. It is the perfect accompaniment to the women’s version of L’eau D’Issey.
