Can't understand the negative ratings.
I have recommended the fragrance many times and everyone liked it. A smoky version of the original, deeper, more sensual, spicier... The Miyake DNA on drug so to speak. Bright and dark, refreshing and beguiling at the same time. Yuzu in the top note convinces with energy, in the heart note it gets warmer and sexier and papyrus with incense dances at the end with ambergris and benzoin a slow tango. A fragrance that can be worn anytime, anywhere. One of my absolute Miyake favorites. Why so few people here understand and love this fragrance is a mystery to me.

Elegant woody-spicy-incensy
A very good fragrance, way above its price tag, that stood the test of time.
L'Eau d'Issey PH Intense starts woody spicy with all the citric notes balancing each other perfectly, adding in background a great cardamom-nutmeg combo, very well integrated. When the middle notes take the stage, you can feel a warm-spicy smell (lotus, saffron, cinnamon), joining naturally the remaining of fresher top notes. After a few hours, it keeps some of the dark freshness on my skin, becoming more woody-incensy and showing an air of elegant man.
Very good value for the money and pretty long lasting (8-10 hrs). My personal rank 8.5/10, recommended.

Very helpful Review 9  
Why is this not being talked about more ? And how on earth is it being rated at only 6.8 ???
Imagine the notes in this fragrance like a queue of people waiting to get into a club (the club in this case being your nose lol), and they are crowding the entrance, Incense and the base notes are like that hot chick with her entourage that will cut right in front of the queue to get in after a 5 minute wait.

This isn't a citrus fragrance, this is an incense fragrance with little resemblance to the original LDPH, a bit dusty/ashy but super classy, blind buy worthy and absolutely recommended, love it.

Intensive next to
Unfortunately this one is miles away from the original. Here the employees of the Shiseido Group probably had to bring a quick shot with the fashion name intense onto the market in 2007. Otherwise I cannot explain this rather unsuccessful smell to myself.
What is equally exciting is the stamina with which the ladies and gentlemen have pushed many intense, nuit's and perfumes into the fragrance world, with quite manageable success.
That is a pity, because there are quite very good L'Eau d'Isseys which have their authority.
This one here, when you've got a closet full, isn't a mandatory must-have.
Unfortunately, it seems rather stale and unpleasant.
Something musty bothers me, and too many components don't fit together. I can say yes to orange at first. After that the camphor and the cinnamon is only strange and in no way harmonious with the nutmeg or the water lily. As analysis to what I dislike so much.

So people, if you want to wear good scents from Shiseido, you can resort to Nuit dissey or L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme Sport. These are both very pleasant, long lasting and with a pleasant sillage.
This one better not be.

Ginger shot for the whole day.
On the days I go to my part-time job in shipping instead of university, I like to take a ginger shot with me in the morning as a drink in the supermarket in Nuremberg main station. It wakes you up and you feel subjectively fresher after a night of not enough sleep. - This fragrance is the same, only as a perfume. First a kick of citrus and in my eyes also ginger notes, which then carries you on a tiring bed of cinnamon and resin notes through the day.

The rating of this gem is a joke! This is far better version of the original. Smoky citrus, resins and spices - a grown up version.

▼ Most confused fragrance I've ever smelt and the epitome of genderless. Is it floral, is it incense? It doesn't know what it wants to be.

An underrated fragrance. It's not for everyone, but this dry citrus and fresh scent that stands out from the crowd deserves a better rating.
