I tried L'eau D'Issey years ago and didn't like it but with all the praise I continue to see I decided to try it again. It's still a thumbs-down for me. My nose detects no citrus in this at all, just a blast of slightly harsh florals. The floral note of this reminds me of the smell of a fragrant oolong tea but there's also a component to this that smells like cotton/linen air freshners that is not good.

citrus mixed with urine. it attracts no one. whatever the uniqueness,note separation or quality.. only a good scent can get u compliments.
It's obvious what mr. Miyake went for with this one: A tart, aquatic floral with a personality. For me, it doesn't work. It's far too synthetic and light, wanting to fly off your skin in all directions. And the "personality" aspect of it comes across as sour and cloying. Nah.
