    Default Versace Eau Fraiche VS.L'eau D'issey

    Which one do you prefer?

    Also, is the original the best or are some of the flankers better in your opinion since their are so many flankers of L'eau D'issey

    I like better Dissey but Verscace Eau Fraiche is less common (at least over here).

    Eau Fraiche is overrated as shit in my honest opinion, I dont see whats so good about it and the longevity isnt something to look out for either

    L'eau d'Issey by far

    I love both. I prefer the actual smell of Eau Fraiche but i heard longevity sucks and also sillage.

    Aqua by Bulgari will be my pick because it gets right what the other two do not.

    L'eau d'issey. Eau fraiche is nothing special. It lacks body and smells way too generic.

    If forced to pick between the two, I would go with Versace Eau Fraiche - at least it is innocuous, not obnoxious like L'Eau d'Issey.

    It seems there is a lot of people on either side of the fence for this one. I personally haven't smelled I'ssey Miyake yet so I can't say although I plan on getting a sample soon. I do like Versace Eau Fraiche and the more I do smell/wear the sample the more I like it. My only gripe is the sillage/longevity. It seems some people claim is lasts forever and projects while others say it doesn't at all, which doesn't seem to make sense. The juice is still the same and despite your skin dryness it shouldn't have that large of an impact.

    Issey has alot more longevity, presence and complexity than eau Fraiche. Eau Fraiche doesnt really change from when its first sprayed til when it dies 2 hours later, although it does smell good on clothes rather than skin.

    I own both, but I find Eau Fraiche to be a much better fragrance. The longevity isn't a match for the L'eau D'issey, but it smells better to me.

    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov

    I've worn Eau Fraiche several times, and still don't know what it smells like. I don't like L'eau D'Issey, but the summer editions are pretty nice. However, I do not love it.
