    Default Hi everybody

    Hi there everybody.

    First post so go easy.. Looking for a summery edt, was considering Issy Miyake L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme. Is this a nice fragrance, is there a better choice for a similar price? I like my Lacoste style in play but not so much a fan of my YSL Live Jazz, is it similar to the Live Jazz that I shouldn't purchase?

    Thanks for any help!

    Welcome Guesty250
    Issey Miyake is a good scent especially if your just starting.
    Try a search for summer frags here and then try to sample the ones you may like.

    Welcome to you! Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey would be just fine.

    L'eau D'issey is a terrific had and a classic at that , can go wrong with it IMHO

    Not similar to Live Jazz, which I prefer. D'Issey is safe but perfeclty pleasant. Their summer flankers are usually pretty good imo.

    Hi guesty250.. welcome to basenotes.. just a suggestion but try the summer edition of issey miyake l'eau d'issey. Its more fresh & fruity than the original.. also less florals. Also try versace pour homme (not l'homme) chanel allure homme sport and dior homme sport.

    Welcome! You might also try the Calvin Klein Summer scents. They have a new one each year as a limited edition.

    Welcome! Both L'Eau d'Issey and Live Jazz are highly appropriate choices as summer scents.
