This is the closest to the first release L'Eau d'Issey pour homme. The current formulation of L'Eau d'Issey PH is way watered down and is more about the citrusy green notes and none of the musky blue notes of the first release.
Those musky blue notes are present here. Very beautifully constructed with long lasting lingering basenotes. Absolutely worth a full bottle, especially compared to the current version of L'Eau d'Issey PH.
If you can find vintage of the original, def buy it. The second iteration is not bad either. Or just buy this Gold Absolute, if you can find it :)
Close to the original, but woodsy citrus instead of aquatic.
The ambar, cedar and spices in the heart turns it into an almost sweet fragrance, but still "fresh".
The original is one of the fragrances that I hate the most, i can't support aquatic fragrances. Gold Edition is far better, in my opinion. Longevity and sillage are below the original, but still very good. Safe for an office.
