In case you are searching for a clean floral green women’s fragrance, then A Scent by Issey Miyake might be your answer. As reported by Issey Miyake website, this perfume is “the interpretation of Issey Miyake’s vision of what a perfume is: «air that smells good». A need for authenticity, the luxury of simplicity. An optimistic and feminine fragrance inspired by pure fresh air.”
And from what I sampled on the blotter, I could say that the concept has potential. This perfume was introduced in August 2009 and is developed by perfumer Daphne Bugey. The fragrance revolves around the floral accords of jasmine and hyacinth, the citric notes and freshness arrive by courtesy of Amalfi lemon and French verbena and the consistency is offered from a mixture of Virginia cedar and galbanum. The dominant notes inside A Scent by Issey Miyake are jasmine and Virginia cedar, which reflects the character of this “poetry of minimalism” inspired by “the mountains of Japan” according to PR officials from Issey Miyake.
And the result maintains the minimalistic design promoted by Issey Miyake; the bottle looks like as if they wanted to replicate a bottle of water. If it wasn’t for the atomizer, you could swear that it is a typical water bottle. Of course, in a profile view, you are able to notice the straight lines and perfect cuts of the perfume bottle, and this is explained on the official website: “the bottle was created from a slab of pure glass. A block of light from which bottles are sliced, depending on the desired size.”
