Issey Miyake presents Shades of Kolam, two Eaux de Toilette born from an extraordinary journey: an unprecedented collaboration between the perfumer Marie Salamander, and the artistic duo, Twice Studio. These three creatives came together in India, right in the heart of the Tamil Nadu state in the city of Chennai. Together, they had an idea: to discover the art of Kolam and to draw inspiration from it to reinterpret the iconic scents, L’Eau d’Issey and L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme.

Why choose Kolam? Kolam is a singular art form, that has been passed down for centuries from mother to daughter, generation upon generation. It is a technique which combines artistic expression and mathematical intuition as well as ancestral sprinkling techniques. These geometric patterns, drawn by Indian women using rice powder and colored pigments, form captivating arabesques, which interlock in concentric circles to create mandalas.

To bring life to the bottles for this special edition, the designers started from scratch by designing the Kolam-inspired lettering. The main hue, blazing royal blue — echoed in the transparent tone of the bottle and the bold color of the cap — is a reminder that in India, blue is a warm color.

The fragrance bursts open with an explosion of cardamom, backed by a luminous beam of pomelo and bergamot. At the heart of the perfume, a green tea accord draws out the elegance of the sophisticated coriander seed. The woody base, composed of cedar and cashmeran, evokes the incandescent warmth of southern India, as well as the softness of the milky cardamom tea that is drunk in the markets of Chennai.
