Scent of the ‘90s: Sisley’s legendary Eau du Soir makes a limited edition comeback

Fresh face

The signature whirlwind of flowers, spice and chypre is now bottled in a flacon of gold-edged black roses

If there’s anything we’re looking forward to in this time of year besides Christmas, it’s Eau du Soir’s annual new look. Since its major release in 1990 that won over multitudes of women’s hearts, the house of Sisley has been launching limited edition series of this sublime scent of Hubert and Isabelle d'Ornano's creation for the past 15 years. From dressing the flaçon in fluorescent Savannah prints to sublime Anish Kapoor speckles, Sisley has done it all — or so we thought.

This year, the Parisian beauty maison brings forth a graphic print of twirling rose petals in the timeless hues of black and gold. The blooming arabesque swirls on the glossy white lacquer of the bottle, adorning the rich notes of chypre within. A spritz and a whiff evoke a stroll through the gardens of Alcazar in Seville at dusk as its freshness of citrus and sun-drenched grapefruit is intertwined with a balance of intense rose and delicate jasmine. The final touch: Base notes of amber and patchouli embrace the fruity, floral musk, leaving a lastingly elegant scent in its wearer’s wake. A classic with a fresh face that's not to be missed.
