Dusita Issara was launched in 2016, created by Pissara Umavijani. Inspired by summer mornings, lush green fields and a free spirit, it is plush, soaring outdoors.
Dusita Issara has notes of Pine, sage, coumarin, bourbon vetiver, tobacco, musk, amber, oakmoss, woods and is an extrait de parfum.
Luca Turin - "Judging by the three extant Dusita fragrances, I reckon there may be a beautiful new voice out there. The first I smelled was Mélodie de l’Amour. It is a white floral, and a very good one at that, but disconcertingly rendered in faded grey tones that remind me of the paper note in Dzing! Note that, for once, faded and grey do not here mean weak or indistinct. MdA has a powerful presence, but feels like it is heard through radio static on short wave: immediately recognisable, yet veiled and remote. Then I smelled Oudh Infini. It could hardly be more different, powerfully animalic and musty. But again, the weird, drifting grey fog was there, this time muting the bright colors of orange flower and rose. I moved on to Issara, a fougère that smells of rain, wet tea leaves and cold cigars. To paraphrase Lady Bracknell, three begins to look like intent.
Kafkaesque - "Issara’s opening phase is truly imbued with a sense of light. I can’t figure out how the feat was done. Ambergris is part of Issara’s note list, but it doesn’t feel like the source of the sunshine because there is nothing caramel-scented, salty, marshy, chewy or musky about it. It also doesn’t resemble the (frequently synthetic) abstract impressionism one finds with perfumers like Jean-Claude Ellena. While there is a minimalism and a streamlined simplicity to Issara’s shimmering goldenness, it feels as though it stems from a very deft handling of the other materials instead, like the green accords, the aromatics, and coumarin. If it is the ambergris, it’s been transformed into a gossamer veil of luminosity over Issara’s heart, meat, and bones: fragrant meadows of hay layered with clary sage, pine leaf, delicate woods, and mossy greenness."
Eaumg - "For a long time, Issara smells like a sweet tonka and amber with the faintest amount of dry moss. To my surprise, that isn’t the dry-down. The dry-down is a warm, sweet, cuddly musk ... It’s unexpected and I can’t stop sniffing it.
Basenotes - " There is both a freshness & an earthiness to this one. There's a crisp, sunlit opening, followed by smooth tobacco, a hint of sage, & an undertone of tonka. Over the first hour, the tobacco becomes smokier, & then comes the best part: the coumarin comes out in full force, with all its hay-like sweetness. There are shades of Chergui here, although this is less sweet & less dense. The projection is excellent for a good six hours, & overall it lasts well over twelve hours, sometimes up to twenty-four on a good day.
