Issey Miyake has launched L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Intense, a new fragrance for men:
Water continues to change its course and gain power with L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme INTENSE, a new fragrance that is both captivating and invigorating. The masculinity and warmth of INTENSE illustrates water's force like never before and represents the epitome of power and elegance.
Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Intense is available now at Nordstrom in 75 or 125 ml Eau de Toilette. I will update with the notes when I can find them.
Update: L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Intense was developed by Jacques Cavallier, the perfumer who created the original L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme. A description from Moodie Report:
The fragrance features three contrasting harmonies: a bubbling, explosive surface; a spicy geyser at the centre; and sensual textured depths.
Citrus notes of mandarin orange zest, enhanced with bergamot, yuzu and sweet orange, give way to an astringent spice combination of camphor, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and saffron. These are freshened with blue water lily which adds an ozone-like note and the unmistakeable L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme signature.
Black incense, ambergris, benzoin and papyrus wood essence feature in the deep, woody dry-down.
Van Cleef & Arpels has launched First Summer 2007, a limited edition version of their well-known First fragrance, originally introduced in 1976.
The aldehydic floral was inspired by coral and developed by perfumer Evelyne Boulanger. The notes include mandarine, cassis, aldehydes, lily, peony, amber and white cedar.
