Issey Miyake, like any designer perfume brand, started with clothing. Issey Miyake debuted his first collection in 1971 in New York. Issey Miyake pushed the envelope between Eastern and Western fashion by focusing on the body, the cloth covering it, as a guiding principle, which shocked and resonated with people all over the globe.
Issey Miyake started his first perfume line in collaboration with perfumer Jacques Cavallier in 1992. L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme (for men) was out in 1994 and was a direct competitor to the original fragrance. Beginning in 2007, Issey Miyake released an annual limited edition women’s fragrance for which he collaborated with a guest perfumer.
It all began with Issey Miyake’s perspective on water as a substance, and the resulting scent changed the face of the perfume industry forever. These scents are made using the same ideas as Issey Miyake’s apparel design: to consistently deliver new smells that are appropriate for modern living and are founded on the idea of seeking one’s real nature.
