A Scent for Summer!

Morning girlies. Summer has officially hit my garden this week with the sun shining brightly it makes me feel all happy and fuzzy.
I have a perfect Summer fragrance which i was sent for review purposes which i have been using everyday since receiving.

Issey Miyake A Scent

The product is described as:
A green and feminine fragrance. A fresh signature scent, drawing inspiration from nature's essentials: leaves, flowers, wood. A green, floral, woody fragrance.

For me personally. I really enjoy wearing this scent as an everyday perfume. Its fresh, uplifting. Its nothing like the other Issey Miyake fragrances that Ive tried before. Its much fresher, lighter and a pleasant surprise as to be honest I'm not a huge fan of some of the other Issey Miyake fragrances.

Top Notes: Verbena
Heart Notes: Hyacinth and jasmine
Base Notes: Galbanum

The bottle itself is lovely. Heavy solid and classy looking. Its taken pride of place on my dressing table as i only like to have one bottle out at a time. I keep the rest tucked away in a pretty box.

The Fragrance also has a range of enhancing body products. A shower  gel, body lotion and deodorant so if you are a lady that likes to layer then this is perfect.

If you are looking for a subtle, fresh, grown up fragrance then give this a try. I could smell the green fresh hit immediately which dried down to a soft almost powderery floral which is really delicate and pretty.

Available from who have the fragrance at a massive discount price at the moment.

30ml £16.50 instead of the RRP £30.64
50ml £25.00 instead of the RRP £47.49
100ml £33.50 instead of the RRP £68.43

A Bargain in my eyes. Have you tried this fragrance for yourself and if so what do you think?

  6. I love summer scents! I'm so horrible when I go shopping for them, because I can never decide on one... This year it is my goal to use up the things I have before I purchase new things, and perfume is one of them... Because in all honesty... nobody needs over 100 different fragrances. Looks like no shopping for me for awhile! :(

  7. Thanks girls, its a never ending field of fragrance with so many new ones being released all the time. I have to admit i can't keep up with them ha xx

    Corrine :0 over 100 different fragrances. You could open a shop. xx


Thankyou for all your comments, i appreciate each and everyone xx
