L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Gold Absolute ~ With mandarin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cashmere wood and amber.

I dont think we will ever see an end to these flankers.
The fragance it´s same than last years. I quite like the men´s. By the way, I think there is a mistake and they switched descriptions: pour homme is the woody amber and pour femme must be floral amber
LOL — you’re right, and I didn’t even notice!
I miss the Fleur de Bois… that was my favourite Issey flanker by far.
I didn’t try that one.
Nothing reminds me of a snowy New England Christmas more than lotus!
It does seem kind of silly with regard to the women’s, but the notes of the men’s do sound like smells I associate with Christmas. I may have to sniff this one if I come across it.
I can’t help but see J’adore L’absolu.
Mr. Issey Miyake, we DO like your name, bur we don’t need any L’Eau D’Isseys anymore… Another name, please…
Last year’s Homme Noir Absolu was a 100ml for $82 and this one’s a 50ml for $79?! I should have gotten last years for double the size and only $3 more. Haha. : )
They just went up on Dillards, and NM made a mistake — the men’s is clearly 100 ml. Sorry!
Oh great! Thanks so much! I might have to give in this time around. : )
Kind of like the golden colour….but these flankers are making me weary
