You might know Sisley most famously as a Parisian skincare powerhouse. But I recently came across their fragrances, and I am absolutely in love with them! The Sisley Eau du Soir EDP is the most beautiful feminine scent I have smelled in a long time. In my opinion, it’s the perfect combination of elegance and subtlety, yet still bold enough for its wearer to make a statement with their scent.
This fragrance is inspired by ‘a stroll through the gardens of Alcazar in Seville’. This Spanish location is renowned for its beautiful smell, particularly at dusk, when the resident Syringa flowers give off their fragrance. I have to say, when I smell this, I am instantly transported to a Mediterranean vineyard surrounded by lemon trees.
This fragrance has several notes that make it the perfect summer scent. It has a strong citrus base, lightly dusted with delicate floral notes for good measure. The top notes – mandarin, grapefruit and pepper – make themselves known almost instantly. Once the fragrance has dried down on the skin, the floral notes start to take shape. Mainly rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang and iris.
The base notes of the perfume are musk, amber, patchouli and oakmoss – these all add an edge of sophistication and boldness to the scent.
The scent lasts all day and night. I last wore it while on vacation, and always sprayed it first thing in the morning before hitting the beach. I could still smell it through to the early hours of the following morning, even after a big night out! It’s one of those smells that lingers on clothes, too – even after washing them. Sometimes, I’ll put a jumper on that I have worn previously while wearing this scent, and get a gorgeous nostalgic reminder of my vacation.
When To Wear Sisley Eau Du Soir
Make no mistake – I’m not saying there are any rules to perfume! However, this is definitely a fragrance I would stick to for summer. I’m picky with my scents and like to tailor the ones that I’m wearing to specific occasions. For me, this would be one of the first scents I’d pack in my suitcase for vacation, and if I had any summer weddings to attend – it’d be my first choice.
The bottle of this perfume is also incredible. At first, it reminded me a bit of an Oscar award! It’s got a golden face silhouette as its cap, and a beautiful four-dimensional glass bottle. So, not only am I in love with this scent – I adore the way it looks on my dresser, too!
