If water had a scent what would it smell like? According to Japanese designer Issey Miyake, it would be a lot like his male fragrance L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, which was inspired by the notion of creating a fragrance for this potent liquid. Considered a best seller in many around the globe, the L’Eau d’issey range has been flying off shelves ever since its launch in 1994. In 2016, a new addition has been added to the collection that has us falling in love all over again with this vibrant and energising scent.
