In 1992, he launched L’Eau D’Issey, his first fragrance for women. The olfactive signature of Issey Miyake perfumes is a common structure of nature, verticality, and power with notes of citrus, aquatic notes, floral notes, and woods.

For his first fragrance, Issey Miyake drew inspiration from “the world’s most beautiful and purest fragrance: the scent of water on a woman’s skin.” L’eau d’Issey is a tribute to nature, to water, an essential source of life, purity and freshness.
