Issey Miyake Fusion d’Issey Extrême
Following the explosive launch of Issey Miyake Fusion D’Issey last year—an instantly iconic hit—comes the newest iteration, Extrême.

Fusion d’Issey Extrême is inspired by its predecessor vision of volcanic fire and ethereal ice. Pushing the extremes by contrasting strength and freshness, it entices us to discover an entirely unexpected nature. The fresh aspect comes from spicy notes of cardamom combined with the zesty scent of bergamot. Between strength and balance, the aroma of peppermint mingles with the verticality of the profound mineral solar accord that is the signature of Fusion d’Issey. Underlying this is the unique union of sandalwood and patchouli essences.
