Issey Miyake

Issey Miyake is a Japanese fashion designer that is well known for his avantgarde clothing collections as well as his fabulous fragrances. He launched his first perfume in 1992. The name of the perfume, L’eau d’Issey (Issey’s water in English) was a pun because the French word I’oddyssée means odyssey. The inspiration for the bottle designs has been taken from the view of the moonlight over the Eiffel Tower from his apartment in Paris. In 1994 he launched his first fragrance for men, L’eau d’Issey Poir Homme. The key words for his design is simple, timeless, harmonic, comfortable and innovative.
