Very helpful Review
The Brand Issey Miyake often does not receive much attention. The house is neither really mainstream nor really niche. Nevertheless, every release is creative perfume craft. independent, innovative, even if you don't reinvent the wheel, they often bring a twist to their fragrances that hardly anyone has done before.
For this courage or risk one does not always reap compliments. I could not buy or test this fragrance anywhere in Hamburg. The brand is obviously running so badly that the alsterhaus has kicked out issey miyake completely. At other perfumeries you can find if at all only older releases. Unthinkable compared to mainstream fragrances. The good thing about issey with the funny name that nobody buys them, they are unique and therefore often on sale :)
So blind buy ! In america a little hype went through the fragrance scene. Some influencers voted it the best release of the year, best winter scent, which resulted in the scent being sold out, (it might not have been produced or bought as often...)
So I was curious, as issey miyake fan anyway.
To the fragrance :
Pulse of the night does without a mainstream head note, and that in a time when everything smells like bergamot, grapefruit etc.
It starts off balsamic sweet with the amber and subtly beautifully blended mist. First impression, shy, quiet but with a lot of depth. definitely not quality. One rather has the feeling to smell an opulent drydown, on the one hand because he is so dazzled, on the other hand head notes technically nothing is noticeable on fruits, great. directly a thick drydown feeling. All right! But no beastmode now. The vanilla comes out nice. Along with the amber, and now I'm checking out this piece of art. After 5 minutes the smoke fades away a little and the woods start to pulsate. Associations to spicebomb extreme are given, also slightly powdery.
think of Boi's typical perfume because of the vetiver that also comes soapy but somehow you always come back to the patchouli and vanilla, there's a lot happening. Almost like a film or a song that changes. If you want to spray good entertainment on your arm, it is really interesting how it develops and changes.
It is said to have features of dior Bois d'Argent, which I don't know because of the price, others compare it to perfumes de marly herod or oajan, the latter of which I smelled in a shop and I can't say for sure.
Above average performance
Who likes spicebomb extreme will also find this one great.
