My boyfriend is a pretty nice guy, so for our anniversary he got me a bottle of L'Eau d'Issey Summer. I'm obsessed with the original fragrance and when I saw this at a beauty counter late last month, I sprayed myself incessantly - yet it still didn't make me nauseous.
Part of my job is to write beauty product descriptions, so I kind of laugh when I read copy on websites that's obviously trying too hard. This fragrance is described as a complex scent that "evokes the bright dreamy days of summer with it's enticing hints of colour, enlivening its fresh, transparent impression". Ok - kind of vague, but it's true. I'd go a little further and say that it's the freshest scent I've ever owned, and to me, it smells like the purest water combined with a wide range of subtle florals. Oh, I love this stuff. I know I'm going to run out before the season ends.
