Soir d’Orient is a follow-up to the very famous Eau du Soir by Sisley . Also, if it is a nectar for all audiences, it is aimed more particularly at a Middle Eastern target. Indeed, its Mediterranean heat is reminiscent of this part of the globe. It delivers a heart loaded with flowers and spices that instantly transports us to the heart of Seville. This fragrance, from the imagination of Olivier Pescheux’s nose, is a call to travel to a sun-drenched country.
Sisley sets course for Seville
Soir d’Orient is a fragrance emanating from the desire of Isabelle d’Ornano, the creator of Sisley. She imagined Soir d’Orient as an invitation to enter the heart of the Alcazar palace in Seville. Indeed, this fortified castle is dear to her heart because she spent a large part of her childhood in Andalusia. However, for her “the inspiration for a new perfume emanates from a desire, a thought, a place that she would have crossed, loved”. She then told her story in front of the house until together they found inspiration. We then enter the heart of this fortified construction. Then, we marvel at this crazy smell of spices and flowers that immediately invaded us as soon as we opened the doors of the palace. Sisley takes us on a trip. The Instant On A Time,
The Andalusian scents of Soir d’Orient
Soir d’Orient opens directly with spicy notes , which is rare enough to be underlined. Saffron then joins floral notes and is supported by Italian lemon. Likewise, the Galbanum from Iran brings a touch of freshness which gives it an incisive touch. Then everything softens and her heart fills with flowers. We recognize the intensity of the Turkish rose as well as the Egyptian geranium. However, the fragrance continues to assert itself and the black pepper from Madagascar is there to recall its strong character, typically Mediterranean. However, its spicy character gives way to a more mysterious and leathery trail from which emanates scents of Somali incense and Indonesian Patchouli.
In addition, beyond this intoxicating scent, Soir d’Orient also impresses thanks to its bottle. Indeed, the wealth it evokes could make us think of a palace in Cordoba with its refined mosaics and meticulous ornaments. In addition, its luxurious side is indisputable and gold is omnipresent. This setting is very inspired by that of Eau du Soir, emblematic of the Sisley house. It is lacquered in a deep black, it is adorned with a golden acanthus leaf characteristic of Mudejar architecture. However, the centerpiece remains the cabochon. The latter was made by the Polish sculptor Bronislaw Krzysztof and represents a woman. Her hair fluttering in the wind gives off an absolute femininity, like her bewitching essence.
