Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Le Feu d'Issey Light by Issey Miyake c2000

 Le Feu d'Issey Light by Issey Miyake: launched in 2000. Created by Jacques Cavallier.

Household & Personal Products Industry, 2000:

"Issey Miyake's latest scent is being billed as a fresh floral containing top notes rose essence and bergamot and middle notes of gardenia. The scent, Le Feu d'Issey Light, is markedly different from the designer's introduction of a few years ago, L'Eau d'Issey, a green floral.  
L'Feu D'Issey Light complements L'Feu D'Issey in Issey Miyake's interpretation of fire. L'Feu D'Issey is the strong and intense side of fire that symbolizes passion, warmth and energy; L'Feu D'Issey Light is the sparkling and luminous side of fire embodied in its spark, according the Ms. Nicolas, of Beauty Prestige International, the manufacturer of Issey Miyake's fragrances.  
Light is a sensuous, floral fragrance with top notes of rose and bergamot, middle notes of gardenia and base notes of milky amber and Gaiac wood. "Recent trends are turning around," said Ms. Nicolas. "Before, women were looking for fresh, light fragrances. Now they are looking for more sensual fragrances, such as monoflorals." 

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral woody musk fragrance for women.

  • Top notes: rose, anise, mahogany, coconut, and bergamot
  • Middle notes: gardenia, rose, hortensia, caramel, milk, and jasmine
  • Base notes: white amber, cedar, vanilla, musk, sandalwood, and Gaiac wood
