Issey Miyake L'Eau Bleue Pour Homme
Ginger, Pink Peppercorn, Lavender, Cypress, Juniper Berry.
Mosses, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Amber, Atlas Cedar.
L'Eau Bleue Pour Homme by Issey Miyake has me on the fence. There are days I like wearing it and then there are days it does absolutely nothing for me and I question why I purchased it in the first place. I suppose the deeply discounted price had something to do with my pulling the trigger, so for price point alone, it was a viable acquisition.
I will say that L'Eau Bleue is nicely blended with acceptable sillage and longevity. It possesses a fresh aspect and is extremely unoffensive as a whole. Perhaps the fact that it's unremarkable causes me annoyance on the days I'm not in the mood for it. If that's the case, then the problem with L'Eau Bleue isn't with L'Eau Bleue.
There aren't noticeable transitions on my skin, but rather a tempering of presence as the wearings ensue. There is citrus, Spice, a nice rendition of Pepper and woody herbs from start to finish. It just never "grabs" me and tells me "I'm a terrific scent".
Issey Miyake gets a thumbs up from me anyway. To give it a neutral or worse would be extremely unfair. I suppose it's a case of everything isn't for everybody and call it good. Longevity is approximately 4 to 5 hours on my skin before I'd consider reapplying. You may love it........or you may not. Please take my recommendation to try before you buy.
