Le Sel d’Issey: A Salt-Sprayed Voyage in a Bottle

The world of perfumery can be summed up in one word when it comes to Issey Miyake: Innovation. Minimalism. Timeless. Every creation takes us on a sensorial voyage; we transmit fragrances from the senses, moving and transforming them to a place where they are no longer just an olfactive experience, but also an intrinsic part of the inner soul. The newest release under the Issey Miyake olfactory umbrella, Le Sel d’Issey, encapsulates this.

The Birth of a New Essence⁣⁣ Bold, Provocative, No-Gender ⁣⁣Le Sel d’Issey⁣⁣2024⁣⁣

Ideas originating from the depths of the natural world. The core of the fragrance is infused with tantalizing musk combined with the enigma of sandalwood whispers. It is a fragrance with woody and aromatic notes, starting with a fresh and spicy top note, creating an unforgettable edge through a triadic composition of top, heart, and base notes.

The Lively, Radiant Top Notes

The beginning of the day is in the early morning when the earth is quiet, and the warm scent of ginger signals a new start and vitality — the initial glimpse of sunlight at dawn. The absence of saltiness here only adds to the liveliness, maybe just a hint of sea spray in the air. These initial impressions create an enchanting start, with two contrasting feelings to spark your emotions, leading to a sensory experience that will take you on a soulful journey.

Heart Notes: The Nourishing Cocoon ⁤

Beneath the exaggerated first surge lies the essence of the scent, unveiling the authentic blend of vetiver’s earthy notes and the dry, subdued aroma of sand. Similar to strolling on a hot sunny shore — every step releases the scents of the earth; the salty breeze mixes with the delightful aromas coming from your feet, telling tales of excitement — the soul urges you to engage in the other action: to enter and connect.

Base Notes — The Profound Echo

In the end, the essence of the perfume finally rests in the rich, mysterious depths of cedarwood and oakmoss. The base notes serve as the foundation for the fragrance, much like the roots of ancient forests; strong, woody base notes that maintain their power.

The Scent: An Artistic and Moral Balance

Le Sel d’Issey is more than just its fragrance… The bottle, created by famous Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka, embodies Issey Miyake’s minimalist yet striking design approach. Straightforward lines, without any deception, simply purity that encapsulates the quiet power found in salt, a substance that is both essential and fundamental to life.
