Odyssey Stories

Issey Miyake Parfums invites the international publisher Condé Nast to imagine Odyssey Stories.

From travel and dreamy destinations with Condé Nast Traveler to design, art and architecture with Architectural Digest to quote a few, Condé Nast publications cover moving themes dear to Issey Miyake Parfums.

We invite you to an unexpected journey which will take you to rediscover nature in a unique way.
Each month an editorial team will illustrate a theme inspired by an Issey Miyake fragrance and reveal a creative interpretation of the so-called theme in 4 different articles :
Unexpected Encounter, Perfume is a Journey, Experience of Nature and Carte Blanche.
Each artist, place, element highlighted in the article has been carefully chosen for its vision and interpretation of nature and design.

Are you ready to be #movedbynature ?

Aurélien Guichard, perfumer – the seventh generation of his family –, and Mai Hua, colour designer, video director and blogger, travelled together to Zamami Island, in the Okinawa archipelago, Japan, to create a collection of fragrances: Shades of Paradise. An incredible occasion to witness the force of the natural elements and the ever-changing scents and colours of the place. Here is a little behind the scenes of their rendez-vous on this piece of paradise.
