Nuit d’Issey is a new men’s fragrance from Issey Miyake, which, judging by the design of the bottle, belongs to the same collection as L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme from 2009. The bottle is colored in black to represent the night, magnetic and hypnotic, the main inspiration for this edition.
The composition is a woody-spicy with a leather backbone, developed by Dominique Ropion and Loc Dong. It is also described as a sharp, crisp and mysterious ode to wood. Top notes include zesty citruses of bergamot and grapefruit. The heart of the mysterious trail of leather accords is enhanced with spices, black pepper, woods and vetiver. The base notes are rich dark woods, patchouli and incense with tonka bean.
Photographer Ryan Hopkinson is responsible for the advertising campaign. The fragrance is available as 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette. Nuit d’Issey was launched in 2014.
