The new limited edition of L'Eau d'Issey' Summer EdT from Issey Miyake ( L'Eau d'Issey' Summer 2007 Pour Femme) screamed green right from the shelf. So green that I didn't dare trying it in my own skin. Luckily, my shopping companion was my little sister, a green-lover if there ever was one. She sprayed, sniffed and fell in love.
To my nose it smelled so green that I could picture each part and fiber of the plant. There's an actual list of notes (green leaves, black currant, lily-of-the-valley, rose, orange flower, peony, tuberose, violet and woody notes), but as far as I'm concerned, the notes are every part of the plant that's above ground, stem and all. My sister finds it light and fresh, and I suspect that those who like green, grassy scents would adore this one.
Quote of the week belongs to my brother-in-law who upon sniffing my sister's neck declared: "It smells like chlorophyll".
*2013 edit-- my poor sister is as in love with L'Eau d'Issey' Summer 2007 Pour Femme. She wore it through both her pregnancies as it was the only perfume she could stand. I've bought her every single bottle I could find; begged and pleaded every online dealer I know, but here we are, six years later and I think nothing is left. I think I need to get her hooked on something new.
