The Scoop

As one of modern perfumery's oldest and most stalwart genres, the fougère might seem immune to reinvention- what hasn't yet been done? At least, that's how we thought before we smelled Issara. At once fiercely natural and intricately refined, Issara is a fougère beyond comparison, blending classic freshness with dynamic ingredients that add unprecedented smoothness and character.

Issara immediately identifies itself as a different kind of sun-kissed fougère with an opening bright with crisp pine needles, blending effortlessly into a subtle, herbal sage. The sense of natural space only continues in the heart, as an arresting coumarin accord delivers the fresh scent of newly-mown hay, while vetiver and tobacco deliver smoothly spicy aromatic and balsamic tones. In the base, earthy musk and oakmoss hew to traditionally invigorating roots, with another wondrous twist- a rich dose of real ambergris, smooth, lightly spicy, and deeply indulgent. Both natural-feeling and immaculately crafted, smooth and rich, Issara is a new masterpiece of the fougère style.

Here's what other people are saying about Issara...
I absolutely LOVE Issara! After the first application, I knew I would soon be getting a full bottle - it is simply fantastic. This fragrance is complex, yet comfortingly familiar, as the sage, bourbon vetiver, and tonka blend together perfectly to create a sweet and earthy scent. To my nose, it tends to be linear with only a little more of the woodsy amber notes becoming noticeable after a few hours. It has an herbal, clean freshness that is strong in a subtle way, and is reminiscent of the traditional fougère, but in my opinion, much more exciting.

Absolutely fantastic, and well worth the restock wait! The coumarin is very noticeable when first applied and has a very warm, sweetened hay scent with just a bit of pine. The overall effect is very much a warm, summer field, but perfectly unisex. Over time it becomes a little cleaner and has a more recognizable fougere accord, but more like someone shaved in the morning and you can just detect traces of the cream later that night. Quality is outstanding, very soft projection/ sillage, but lasts 12 hours easily on my skin.

Issara is heart breakingly beautiful! Lovers of hay, pine, juniper, and ambergris should pull the trigger immediately.
