I only recently took a look at the reviews on L' Eau Bleu d' Issey. I noticed how someone compared it to New West and got interested. Even till the moment i sprayed it on me I thaught it was just a flanker for L'Ed'I.
The opening reminds very much of Tokyo, mandarin and orange peal, with some rosemary. Then resins and cypress. It is amazing. Extremely underated and totally doomed by the promotional tactics. They put it in a bottle that looks like the bottle of L'Ed'I, they gave it a name that makes you think it is an aquatic flanker, they manage to attract people who like l'Ed'I and then they serve them something a lot stronger, warmer and probably manage to dissapoint them! No wonder very few people appreciate it and even fewer buy it.
To make a long story short, I baught immediately and I think it is going to be one of my favourite fall 2009 scents.
