Inside The Box: Issey Miyake A Drop D'Issey


A Drop D’Issey .8mL x 3

It’s unique bottle is a story in itself–a magnifying glass that enlarges and distorts and creates an optical illusion, an invitation to ‘open the mind to new perspectives,’ according to the brand. Quite apt because this fragrance can be quite a new experience.

Launched last year, A Drop D’Issey is a unique fragrance that starts as almond bomb before it settlles to a nice milky floral. It’s soapy and fresh, but with enough oomph to stay out of the clean skin scent category. It’s simple but powerful with top notes almond milk and damask rose; heart notes lilac, jasmine, solar notes, star anise, and orange blossom; and base notes vanilla, musk, ambroxan, and cedar. We also get a subtle, aquatic vanilla drydown, which is memorable and lingering.
