The flacon has been issued in 2500 numbered copies. Each flacon contains 20 ml of pure extrait of L'Eau d'Issey, a scent originally created by perfumer Jacques Cavallier in 1991...
The parfum is said to be "the meeting between the rose and lotus blossoms and between East and West."
An extract version already exists and there is no indication that the scent has been changed to fit the luxurious edition. Traditional notes of the extract are:
Lotus, Freesia, Cyclamen, Rose Water, Fresh Peonies, Carnation, White Lilies, Precious Woods, Osmanthus, Tuberose, Amberseed, Musk.
In his homage to Shiro Kuramata, Issey Miyake said,
"Shiro Kuramata loved perfume. A scent has no substance; that is what appealed to him.
One day, I asked him to design a perfume bottle.
He created an immense 'drop of water',
a condensed version of the 'earth'.
Inside, reminiscences of flowers and dreams,
of light and wind,
of men and women...
all dancing a rondo."
The limited-edition is priced at 300 Euros and can be shown upon request in the retail points where it is sold.
