Cologne review: L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme (Intense)

Continuing on the theme of passions, I am passionate about fashion, modeling and all things ancillary, including fragrances. I know, they are seen as a luxury article, but I love them, what can I say. The most recent of the Issey Miyake cologne collection I have tried is an evolved version of my trusted, loved and frequently used L’Eau D’Issey. L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme Intense The most recent (and strongest scent) in the Miyake family of fragrances is L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme Intense.

I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan and I’m still not much of a fan. While it still has the same beautiful soothing notes of L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme, Intense has a really strong higher note, one that is almost overpowering. And this comes from someone who does like strong scents.

I would recommend L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme (Intense) to men who like stronger colognes, whose epidermal chemistry and physical properties don’t allow for much adsorption of the smell. My skin, sadly, is relatively oily and therefore, it tends to bond better and preserve the smell molecules for longer. Therefore, a much stronger scent is going to cause people around me to be cologne-tagged (which, as we have seen, is not a very desirable outcome!).

I asked around and found out that L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme (Intense) is retailing at $ 75.00 Canadian dollars plus tax.

Disclosure: This review is in no way, shape or form commissioned by Issey Miyake nor any of its affiliates. I love all Miyake scents and that’s why I reviewed it. I did not get paid, nor did I get any free samples of the cologne

Helpful review. I bought the cologne yesterday and haven’t worn it yet for the day. I still haven’t finished my original bottle of L’eau pour Homme Issey Miyaki yet.

Cheers.
