Issey Miyake 'Nuit D'Issey' New Men's Fragrance Launch

Last week as part of #NYFW, I attended the ISSEY MIYAKE 'Nuit D'Issey' men's fragrance launch at the Highline Stages. The launch event kicked off with cocktails then a presentation that was dark in representation of the night. Visual artist & photographer Ryan Hopkinson collaborated with Miyake capturing the new scent in a beautiful moonlight setting.

The moon represents the light that is the guide for the man who takes on the night alone. At the event while we sipped on cocktails and enjoyed some music, we had the opportunity to smell the fragrance and I like the woody scent which is sharp & crisp with a refreshing tone. It is also not overpowering but carefree with a subtle tough attraction.

Top notes include a tangy citrus accords with an elegant masculine bergamot and a tender grapefruit sparkle. The middle notes boasts leather accord that is enhanced with spices & black pepper and laden. The scent is topped off with notes that attract rich, textured accords that extends into the resonant, polished sweetness of tonka bean.

All of these ingredients have been bottled up into a black streaked bottle with a opaque cap. A 2.5oz Eau de Toilette retails for $66 and 4.2oz for $87. The men's fragrance can be purchased now at Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom and Sephora.
