HIDDEN SURPRISES WITH A DROP D’ISSEY

Look through its mesmerizing transparency and you will dive into a surprising adventure.

a drop d’Issey gives a new perception unto the world. The round-shaped bottle is an invitation to a world of poetry, where each drop delivers nature’s secrets and a variety of emotions and scents. Joyful, optimistic, the fragrance and its singular bottle design look forward, towards a quest of beauty, of an uncatchable flower balanced by carefully selected ingredients. Follow the path of the drop, and go behind the scenes of the new fragrance, a drop d’Issey.

Can you see the unsuspected beauty of nature? a drop d’Issey reveals what is invisible to the naked eye. The lilac scent of a drop d’Issey comes from an “uncatchable” flower, that is revealed through the expertise of the perfumer Ane Ayo. Within the heart of the perfume, the feminine scent of lilac blends with almond milk accord bringing an enveloping accord. The solar feminine composition lies on a base of creamy and musky note, adding softness to the experience. A complex simplicity that is possible thanks to the perfect harmony created by nature and enhanced by the perfumer in creating a drop d’Issey

“ ‘Drop’ was the watchword from the very start… a drop that could amplify the power of imagination and creativity… By recreating a flower that doesn’t deliver its secrets in perfumery, I captured the smell of an uncatchable flower whose scent can’t be extracted for use in a perfume. Therefore, it needs to be recreated with other materials. The aim was to create a unique flower.”

An avid traveler, Ane Ayo has learnt how to draw her inspirations from a myriad of cultures. Passionate, she developed her scents since her youth to her MBA in perfume and the Grasse Institute of Perfumery. Always inspired by her travels, and by Japan, she has been crafting her art of perfume through her aestheticism and personality. Her reconstitution of an uncatchable flower in a drop d’Issey is similar to bringing the lilac into a studio, to analyze and enhance its facets. It is an invitation to enjoy its true simplicity and hidden floral scents.

A window unto the world. Looking through the bottle of a drop d’Issey is like observing through a bubble, curved lenses, a magnifying glass. Is it an optical illusion? It might be. The bottle has been crafted by the American designer Todd Bracher, to imitate a drop of water in one unique bottle, with a built-in cap. A gentle press releases a spray of daydream, ready to bring you to familiar and unknown places. The flask is clear and pure, making way for surprises through its prism. The drop-shaped bottle is both reassuring, and surprising. Is it really a round shape? Change your point of view, look closer and be amazed.

“For me it was important to try to capture the essence of the liquid in a form, and to find a way to let it look new again… Just as how light passes through water, we wanted to recreate that through the fragrance.”

He has been honored as a Top 100 Global Design Influencer by Wallpaper Magazine in 2015 and International Designer of the Year in 2015-2016. The designer has worked with Issey Miyake in creating the bottle of the perfume Nectar d’Issey. For a drop d’Issey, he wished to create both a simple and poetic bottle in a sole piece. He wanted to change his artistic perspective from previously designed bottles in oblong shapes, and has imagined a singular bottle that is both round and that lies flat. It will confuse your points of reference, and let your imagination run wild.
