Made in collaboration with perfumer Aurélien Guichard, Issey Miyake's iconic Pleats Please fashion line is taking the dive into the world of perfume with a brand new fragrance named after the line itself. Boasting a fruity-floral combination of pear, nashi fruit, preony and sweat pea, the new fragrance carries on the pleats-inspired motif of the Pleats Please line.
