Smell This: Fragrance of the Day – Issey Miyake’s A Scent

This is my second time owning a bottle of Miyake’s A Scent. I admire and appreciate the simplicity of the name, the bottle and of course, its scent which is reminiscent of freshly cut grass and dew drops.

I got this as a birthday gift from my big sister last year, after adding it on to my wishlist! I was so pleased that she actually got me the gift set that included the shower gel and body lotion. When I wear the perfume with those two, it intensifies the amazing scent to a whole new level. This is my ultimate spring/summer scent. Whenever I wear this green, floral, woody fragrance, I can’t help but to be transported into a world where minimalism, peace and nature prevail.

I never fail to spritz this fragrance (or any fragrance for that matter) onto my hair! I just love how whenever the wind blows, I get a whiff of  A Scent and it comes at me like the scent of flowers residing in a secret garden that have been playing hide & seek with swaying trees. Alright, the poet in me is getting carried away now! I apologize. Haha.

Back to the fragrance – it can and will last you the WHOLE day which is another reason you should get it if you like fresh & transparent scents. I sprayed it on my pulse points this morning and of course, my hair and I can still smell it till now.

So what’s in it? Top notes of verbana, heart notes of hyacinth and jasmine and base notes of galbanum. How gorgeous is that simple & clean block of glass bottle too? I have a feeling this perfume is going to be on my wishlist year after year. I can’t imagine going a single summer without it from now on.
