FRESH AIRY CLEAN SLIGHTLY GREEN HERBAL/EARTHY
L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Eau Fraiche is not a citrus-freshie instead it's a earthy-freshie that's non-aquatic unlike its fore-fragrance the OG L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Pour Homme.

fresh slightly sweet juicy citrus/bergamot off the bat, has that classic L'eau D'Issey Pour Homme bright freshness but toned down so not as sharp, mint not really detectable, the rosemary along with the musk are the stars of the fragrance composition as the patchouli adds a slight earthiness, the patchouli & rosemary gives it good masculinity to counter the bright florals (May rose & Peony) + musk; good quality for the price, notes do not smell synthetic, all notes blends extremely well to help create & support each accord; really unique warm weather 'fraichey', just wish it projected better.

when i 1st got it, i compared it with its fore-fragrance L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Pour Homme which made realize how less deep & bold L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Eau Fraiche to L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Pour Homme, but it still doesn't take away from the great craftsmanship and how good of a frag L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Eau Fraiche is.

Projection/Sillage': MINIMAL, an in-close scent mainly but 4-5 ft scent bubble for the 1st hour or so then.

Performance/Longevity: GOOD, 5-6 hours (on fabric)

Me-likey Miyake !
A simple but distinguished spring/summer scent that's best for any daytime dress shirt occassion, imo. A cool, astringent bergamot peel in mint-oil accord hits me in the Opening. Establishing a "mature" herbal character. (By "mature" I simply mean more reserved than energetic in style.)

As the scent developes... A calm and reassuring skin-musk warms up to my body temperature... and blends everything seamlessly to my skin. This is where "Bleu Fraiche" really shines. The musk diffuses rosemary and bergamot, to undermine the severity of it's bitter elements with a delicate citrus/floral tint. An understated and intimate "heart". Gentlemanly, without beng uptight.

I get a smooth, airy, close to body sillage for 5+ hours on my skin. Pretty good preformance for a light, translucent scent. To say that "Bleu Fraiche" is simply "L'eau Bleu" without the spiciness and "body" (although true), would be doing it injustice. It has enough character of it's own to stand shoulder to shoulder with popular office-friendly scents like Bvlgari pour homme extreme, for example. There is one caution! This scent may work against those who have strong "scent-memory" of Vicks vapor rub, or a mentholated ointment -at least in the opening. I initially get that vibe myself to be honest. But fortunately... that disappears for me after the scent develops.

A "must try" for anyone who likes Issey Miyake scents. But don't blind buy. Very very Good.

L'eau Bleue watered down
Balanced smell of rosemary with a bit of lemons and mint.

It's really a watered down version of L'eau Bleue. Actually a good version, great for summer.

Sillage, lasting power and projection are medium.
