Sisley Soir De Lune

The first thing that comes to my mind regarding this fragrance is how it would make such a perfect Mother's Day present. It's in two weeks time ladies!

Soir De Lune by Sisley starts off with a fairy tangy note, which is quite fresh and revitalising but leads one to think its one of those citrusy fragrances that cannot become a signature scent. It then surprises by releasing warm and woody heart notes with a dry down of vanilla and honey. By then, its impossible to tell there were any citrusy notes in the concoction at all as they completely disappear leaving a warm woody and slightly sweet scent.

It's not one of those expensive perfumes which are over hyped so you then go an immediately purchase it but then are bummed by the fact that although it smells amazing, it does not last for more than an hour. This one on the other hand is an underdog. It's one that you haven't heard of before but are pleasantly surprised by its unique and elegant blend and the fact that it lasts for over a day, sometimes even lingers on clothes and surrounds you wherever you go, without overwhelmingly catching attention.

I like how everything from the outer cardboard packaging to the bottle itself mean something. The box is a pretty white background with gold specks all over it representing a starry night as the Soir De Lune means 'evening moon' in French. 

The stunning bottle cap has been designed by a Polish Sculptor Bronislaw Krzysztof. I feel after the fragrance it self, this is the second element that significantly makes it stand out from the crowd and adds a personality to it. Plus, who wouldn't want a stunning bottle as such on the dresser?

It's a royal, Victorian classic so if you are up for something different, this would surely be your cup of tea. It is definitely mine and I am planning to cherish it. 

Of course there is nothing in the fragrance that would make it unsuitable for the younger person however the overall classic yet simple bottle design and the choice of feminine and elegant notes would make it more loved by a mature consumer in my opinion. 

The 30ml bottle that I have retails at various places such as Selfridges, House of Fraser, SpaceNK and Harrods between £60 to £70 however the most affordable place to hunt a bargain would be ebay without doubt.
