Issey Miyake - Le Feu d'Issey
One night you have a wonderful dream. You´re dreaming that you have won a stay at a luxurious tropical resort. A resort that millionaires and celebrities stays at, and you are feel so lucky.
Your private bungalow is situated right at the golden beach and you can here the waves when sitting on the veranda. The bungalow is surrounden by tropical trees and flowers and you can smell their discrete, but gorgeus scent in the air. Strange birds are singing in the trees and down at the beach a romantic coupple walks by. From the bungalow next to yours you can hear laughter and the smell of fine cigars lingers in the air. You wrap yourself in a shiffon sarrong and go for a walk in the water´s edge, the little waves caresses your feet. You´re enjoying the warm water, and the sunbeam at your face and inhale the scent of golden, tropical sunshine.
When you wake up the next morning you still remember the dream, and you know that you probably never will visit such a luxurious place. But, strangly enough, the scents of the dream still lingers around you. An elusive, but still very concrete smell of tropical sun.
That is how I could describe Le Feu d'Issey, if I had visited a tropical island. I think the closest is some island in the medditerean and it´s not the same. Le Feu d'Issey reminds a lot of the light version, but with more smell. It´s stronger, more flowery and also more complex. The obvious cigar-note is really nice, but a bit strange. I cant really understand why they stop making Le Feu d'Issey, while light is still in production. I find them both to be really, really good. And they both smell of summer, sun and beaches, just that the beaches are situated at totally different seas. One doesn´t exclude the other, in my opinion they complement each other.
Wich of Le Feu d'Issey do you prefer? Or maybe you dont like them at all?
