NATURE AS AN ESSENTIAL

Greatness, poetry, simplicity, emotion… Nature is all about surprise, always reinventing itsef! At the origin of life, there is nature, in all its diversity. In the hands of men, nature is redesigned, reshaped, transformed and brought to life. From a drop of water to a fragrance, L’Eau d’Issey and L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme were created, as an ode to nature, its simplicity and complexity.
HEAVEN ON EARTH
Taking the pure scents of nature to create a magnificent fragrance.
L’Eau d’Issey, a delicate and refined aquatic floral essence is revealed.
L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme, the power of woods is intensified with a hint of spices.
From a drop of water to a fragrance, an odyssey.
We have asked Minh T to tell us more about his feelings on nature & the Earth Day
What does Earth Day symbolizes for you?
“Earth Day is a collective moment when the world can assess how important the planet is to our life. It’s a day to acknowledge the beauty that we have inherited, and a reminder for us to come up with ways to retain that beauty and resource for the future.”
How nature inspires you in your everyday work?
“Nature is not just only about the living things, but all the other beautiful elements that are contained in this ecosystem. It’s about the light and air, the endless color palette, and the fantastic shapes and geometry. Nature is bold and delicate, dark and light, massive and ethereal. Every inspiration comes back to nature.”
As a photographer, what type of nature you prefer to shoot?
“A theme in my work is to distill the image down the essential elements. Whether I’m photographing architecture or nature, I’m using the same principle. When I’m shooting a landscape, I often like to reduce a panoramic landscape into simplified composition of abstracted geometric shapes. On the other spectrum, I like get super-close with the subject, focusing on its lines and graphic nature on a macro level.”
What is the most incredible natural thing you ever saw? And shot?
“There have been so many amazing places that I have seen but one particular place that stood out was the Antelope Canyon in Utah. I love visiting this special place for its magical atmosphere and sculptural quality — it feels huge and yet still so intimate. Also, the canyon is still as alive as ever. When it rain, it fills up and becomes a momentary river, which continuously carve these spaces over its millions of years in existence.”
