Sisley launches a new edition of its eternal feminine fragrance L’Eau du Soir
Sisley Eastern Evening
Want to get away from it all and rediscover the intense heat of summer? Good thing, in this fall 2015, Sisley is launching his latest creation. Soir d’Orient plunges us into the heart of Andalusia and its spicy notes are an invitation to travel, a real stroll in the heart of the Middle East. Out of the imagination of Olivier Pescheux’s nose, it will intoxicate you with the multitude of ingredients it contains. Far from creating a rough mix, this one is all about finesse and subtlety.
The bottle of Soir d’Orient, like an air of déjà vu
The Soir d’Orient bottle is reminiscent of that of its predecessor Eau du Soir, which is emblematic of the Sisley house. Lacquered in a deep black, it is adorned with a golden Acanthus leaf. This motif is widely used in Mudejar architecture, so characteristic of Andalusia and its various influences. Its cabochon, designed by Polish sculptor Bronislaw Krzysztof, represents a woman whose gaze and smile convey a feeling of fullness. Her long hair gives off an absolute femininity so typical of oriental women.
Lacquered in deep black and coated with gold, Soir d’Orient reminds us of a palace of a Thousand and One Nights. It transports us to a place steeped in history where the ornaments are worked with refinement and the mosaics are present on all sides. Welcome to the heart of a sultan’s palace. Now, all we have to do is open the doors of the castle, or the cabochon of the bottle, to discover the treasures it contains.
Sisley’s fragrance, like a trip to the heart of Andalusia
Born from the desire of Isabelle Ornano, creator of Sisley, Soir d’Orient is an invitation to enter the heart of Andalusia, part of the globe so dear to the latter because she spent part of her childhood there. And, as she puts it so well “the inspiration for a new perfume emanates from a desire, a thought, a place that she would have crossed, loved”.
Soir d’Orient thus intoxicates us with its floral and spicy heart, cleverly enhanced by a more woody base scent. Welcome to Cordoba where the scent of flowers mingles with spices. Soir d’Orient opens with the roundness of saffron enriched by a pink floral note. The whole is underlined by the lemon of Italy which gives it a bright side and by the green freshness of the Galbanum of Iran. Sisley then added Turkish rose to it as if to make it bigger. This ingredient is also sublimated by Egyptian geranium which even goes so far as to bring it a slightly minty freshness. In its wake, the woody and milky richness of a Sandalwood accord diffuses warm scents accompanied by its Indonesian patchouli and Somali incense.
Sisley’s latest product combines ingredients. He mixes architectural styles in the design of his bottle which mixes modernity, glamor and the flashy side of gold in abundance. It is like a sample of Andalusian diversity, like a showcase of this most cosmopolitan land.
