    Default Le Feu D'Issey- Wow!

    This is a revelation and fully deserves the praise heaped upon it. The reviews section encapsulates the complexity of this fragrance. The way the slightly sour notes soften and become creamy and muskily seductive is as if sour milk became full fat cream milk all over again. A real masterpiece and one to add to the pile of fragrances which cause us all to go "Why stop producing this masterpiece?"

    Agreed on all counts. There seemed to be a time in the late 90's where perfumers and houses weren't afraid to push the limits of what a perfume should smell like. Sadly it seems that mentality is so last century.

    How does this wear as a masculine? I find the notes intriguing but not sure if I could pull it off.

    It's completely genderless in its weirdness
    Etra by Etro was the only fragrance to try something similar (that I know of). Since Feu is so hard to find, get a sample of Etra, is has many of the same notes.

    A former secretary of mine used to rave about this.

    Fine for men too. The main effect is Tarte au citron (lemon, dough, some cream) made slightly inedible by flowers.

    It is extremely difficult to find, though. If you have access to one at a reasonable price, do buy it right away.

    Feu d'Issey Light is somewhat easier to find. It is an aqueous (not in the sense of marine), more transparent version of the regular, more masculine, if you will, in the traditional sense, but weaker and thus less striking.
