Sisley Eau du Soir

Posted on

The Rolls Royce of chypres.

A refined, elegant, and timeless scent. Eau du Soir offers inimitable charm and allure, day and night. A rich, complex olfactory composition, Eau du Soir is a perfect balance between the freshness of citrus, the sensuality of floral and chypre notes, and the intensity of amber and musk.

The sculptural stopper, created by contemporary artist Bronislaw Krzysztof, is plated with 18-karat yellow gold.

Eau du Soir, which celebrates its 20th Birthday this year, was created by Hubert d’Ornano as a personal fragrance for his wife Isabelle in memory of the scent of Andalusian gardens from her childhood, when the day gives way to obscurity and White Seringa flowers fully release their scent. Eau du Soir is the essence of a summer evening captured in an eau de parfum; an extremely elegant, original and refined Chypre floral fragrance.

A scent of rich contrasts that develops subtly and slowly, releasing the perfectly balanced notes of fresh citrus, sensuous floral, crisp chypre, alluring amber and animalistic musk.

I am currently living in this perfume. Only one word to describe this – Sophisticated. I could imagine Elizabeth I ( the Virgin Queen ) wearing this, so elegant that it’s getting snobbish &  grandiose. The elixir of an Ice Queen. ( Thanks Jade for the concept )

PS: the 20th anniversary limited edition bottle comes in a contrasting box ( white bottle in black box & vice versa). I think the black bottle is great for decor.
