Eau du Soir Sisley Perfume for women (1999) Review:
Eau du Soir Eau de Parfum is a fragrance revolving around flowers, spice and chypre, a fine, elegant and eternal fragrance for women that was launched by Sisley in the year 1999.
Fragrance story: Eau Du Soir By Sisley perfume evokes a stroll through the gardens of Alcazar in Seville, at dusk, when the syringa flower exhales its fragrance. A refined eau de parfum, it blends the freshness of citrus with the desirous accords of florals, accentuated by a graceful chypre signature. A gorgeous mix of mandarin and sun-drenched grapefruit. The vivid absolute of rose and subtle jasmine clearly blend with the captivating notes of syringa and ylang-ylang. Base notes of amber and patchouli encompass the fruity, floral notes, bringing on a lovely elegant scent in its wearer’s wake.
Mandarin, sun-drenched grapefruit, rose, jasmine, syringa, ylang-ylang, amber, patchouli.
My Experience with Eau Du Soir from Sisley
Perceiving the notes of Eau de Soir by Sisley Paris for women it has its two most outstanding chords: Citric and solar. It is because the first few seconds of this perfume gives us citrus, bergamot, cardamom, and basil which are reminiscent of acid. Gradually a bitter and green tone is accentuated, like celery.
The universe of smell and odors lacks vocabulary. We must resort to analogies with sensations that give us the other senses. So to describe a perfume (or any smell), it is not necessary to “make poetry” but to find the nearest words to invoke that which has no name. I will try to do the same with my review of this perfume.
I bought deluxe sample of this fragrance just last week at the recommendation of a friend. My first whiff of it produced a very refreshing scent. After a fresh and watery few minutes, it sweetened as a lemon and had floral middle notes. Iris, Egyptian jasmine, cyclamen and pink gave unity to the work. And this is where it merged with the citric solar warmth of the notes of patchouli, cedar, and sandalwood.
The history of this classic luxury perfumery is born with a childhood memory that is quite romantic. It turns out that the founder of the cosmetics brand Sisley is the Countess Isabelle d’Ornano. Her husband, Count Hubert d’Ornano, gifted this perfume to her back in the ’80s. What was so special? First, it was unique and personal: it had been designed for her by her husband and by perfumer the Jeannine Mongin. Second, the composition revolved around a scent that reminded him of the Countess at the sunset of his childhood in Spain.
About the fragrance and My perception of the notes:
It is the scent of the flower Celinda bush that opens at sunset and gives off a strong and distinctive fragrance. Just the name of Eau Du Soir work is because of the flower Celinda at night. In the next decade, the perfume began to be marketed worldwide in a vial whose lid is a sculptured gold 18 K, made by Bronislaw Krzysztof.
The fragrance has a bittersweet citrus beginning of mandarin, but the strong floral imprint of Celinda not worth waiting for (what will be the hallmark of all the other versions of Eau du Soir). The floral middle notes are chained, patchouli through. Iris rose, and jasmine: an indisputably elegant and sophisticated olfactory plot.
What this perfume makes me think of:
The memories of that Spanish garden closed with woody nuances of juniper wood and oak moss come through to take you in a fairytale land. A kind of almost imperceptible amber and musk rapture envelops everything as a final chord. An intermittent rough touch of white pepper prolongs the mark on the skin of this Eau de parfum.
It is definitely a night perfume for everyday use as well as for those extra special nights – Wink! Wink!
Rating – 4.5/5
This perfume is a definite hit with its quiet aura of sophistication and elegance and it made me feel very sexy when it wore it for the first time. I think that says it all ladies!
