Issey Miyake perfumes for men
Perfume is a mixture of essential oils extracted from natural sources (flowers, fruits, spices) or artificial sources. These oils are then dissolved in alcohol at specific concentrations to give the desired fragrance.
There is a difference between Perfume, Eau de Parfum (EDP), Eau de Toilette (EDT), and Eau de Cologne (EDC). The differentiating factor is the concentration of derived essential oils dissolved in the fragrance. Perfume has the concentration followed by Eau de Parfum, then Eau de Toilette, and Eau de Cologne. It is obvious that the higher the concentration, the longer it lasts.
The fragrance of perfumes usually lasts for 5 to 8 hours on an average. But the point to be noted is that fragrance keeps changing with time, once it is sprayed. For the initial 4-5 minutes, top notes are stronger and emanate a sharp, assertive smell. Once these molecules are evaporated, the dry down period ends and heart notes kick into dominance. That's when the real pleasant fragrance comes into the picture. They last longer than the top notes. After 1-2 hours, base notes replace the heart notes and these are the most long-lasting notes.
Issey Miyake claims to be an interlude, a suspended moment in time to find the emotion, the harmony and the pleasure of the senses. With an attractive frosted glass package and tight lid giving it a edge curved triangular base shape, it almost becomes impossible to say no to this creation.
