L'EAU D'ISSEY is not a fragrance like any other, it first takes you unawares, and then the comforting softness and familiarity work their magic. In 2016, we are breathing new life into L'EAU D'ISSEY by opening the second chapter of its story.

The source of L'EAU D'ISSEY is one drop, a single drop.
Rare and precious.
A water that is born, then flows peacefully.
Transparent and yet deep; fluid and yet enveloping,
L'EAU D'ISSEY PURE is full of contrasts.

On sale nationwide from July 27 (Wed)

Incarnated by the salty sea breeze of Maritima* combined with Ambergris, L'EAU D'ISSEY PURE derives from a new aquatic story. Maritima*, an exclusive IFF molecule, evokes cool clear waters, while Ambergris, with its mineral and animal inflections, brings sensuality and breadth to the fragrance. A floral bouquet sparkles, as if floating on a wide expanse of sea. Crystalline Lily-of-the-Valley responds to the brightness of Orange Blossom. Plunge into their delicate white trail. Then come other, denser flowers. Essence of Rose Damascena once again imbibed with the morning dew from when it was picked, brings with it opulent Jasmine in a heady explosion of petals. The ocean crossing continues. In the base notes, the call of Cashmeran* rings out, with musky and woody resonance. (Eau de Parfums 30mL / 50mL / 90mL)

*Maritime, Cashmeran: IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances Inc.) captive

Dominique Ropion

Born in Paris, France. From a young age, possessed an outstanding sense of smell and familiarity with the culture of perfumes through his mother and grandfather who worked in the perfume industry, building a unique world view through his olfactory sense. After obtaining his bachelor's degree, he learned chemical refining at the Roure company with a view to becoming an engineer, but having been admitted at the perfumer training school of that company in Grasse in the south of France, he followed the path of the perfumer. In the early 1980s, at the age of 27, a creation of his became a big hit and launched his fame as a star perfumer. After working at a number of perfume companies, joined International Flavor and Fragrances Inc. (IFF) in Paris in 2000, and went on to win the 2008 International Perfume Award, and be inducted into the French Order of Arts and Letters. In a career spanning more than 30 years, has worked on close to 100 perfumes, demonstrating extraordinary discernment with regard to the quality of raw materials worthy of a skilled perfumer expert in the characteristics and features of scents. His expert choice of effective scents and materials led to “NUIT D'ISSEY,” released in 2014, and “NUIT D'ISSEY PARFUM,” released in 2015.

The new season AUTUMN WINTER 2016 has started.
