French luxury beauty brand Sisley is paying homage to the dreams of the founding d’Ornano family with six fascinating fragrant waters, each with a unique fresh, floral, warm or spicy facet. It’s called “Collection Les Eaux Rêvées”

L’Eau Rêvée d’Hubert

Scent style: herperide – aromatic – chypre

Perfumer: Alexis Dadier

Notes: shiso leaves, green betolina, mint, Egyptian geranium, Virginia cedar, papyrus, patchouli, ambroxan

The newest addition, L’Eau Revee d’Hubert features a cherished note from Isabelle d’Ornano’s garden, a climbing geranium. Unfurl its velvety leaves, rub them between your fingers, and they will release a vibrant green and unexpected scent. It has a fresh rosy aroma with a green character.

Scent style: hesperide – floral – warm

Perfumer: Guillaume Flavigny

Notes: green mandarin, grapefruit, pink peppercorn, jasmine, green tea, musk

This fragrance was developed in memory of Isabelle and Hubert d’Ornano’s walks through the idyllic garden they carefully designed and nurtured. It blends the vivacity of a bouquet of white flowers with intense spices.

Scent style: aquatic floral-woody

Perfumer: Bernard Ellena

Notes: iced cardamom, bergamot, basil, liquid iris, Egyptian jasmine, cyclamen, rose, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver

A delicate aquatic flower blends with frosty cardamom to create an elegant floral scent that unfolds over time like the changing sunlight in one of the family’s gardens.

Scent style: floral-woody

Perfumer: Domitille Bertier

Notes: hibiscus, passionflower, frangipani, bergamot, tuberose, Turkish rose, violet, cedar, ambrette seed, patchouli

What’s interesting about this fragrance is that it opens with sunny floral accord of exotic blooms. These are normally layered in the heart notes, but perfumer Bertier kicks off with florals then adds a little bergamot citrus for freshness. The rose and violet balance nicely and the cedar gives longevity.

Scent style: chypre – spiced – warm

Perfumer: Shyamala Maisondieu

Notes: bergamot, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, purple ginger, devilwood, peach, apricot, patchouli, vetiver, benzoin, vanilla, musk

It was Isabelle d’Ornano’s love of spicy food that inspired this particular composition. It’s built around devilwood, a flower with peachy and leathery notes that blends beautifully with the purple ginger. The opening citrus notes are particularly uplifting and work well with the spices. Musk adds a softness to the whole impression.

Scent style: aromatic-woody

Perfumer: Vincent Ricord

Notes: bitter orange, bergamot, lemon, carrot seed, iris, jasmine, orange pekoe tea, green cistus, sandalwood, vetiver

The myth of Icarus is the inspiration behind this aromatic-woody fragrance. The landscapes of Corsica, one of the homes of the d’Ornano family provides added beauty. There are some surprising and unusual notes in this fragrance including green lentisk, a resiny shrub that is paired with vetiver to create a lively accord. And the orange pekoe tea works well with the iris and jasmine.

    Wow!! What a collection! Naming them after dreams is brilliant!! I love the descriptions of all these lovely fragrances. I think the one I’d like best is L’Eau Revee d’Aria. I saw it had benzoin in it, and that is also in Flowerbomb Nectar. It really does make a fragrance addictive!! I never leave home without at least a spritz! Now, I do it on the back of my neck, like the French! Thanks Dave! Another brilliant scent story!! xoxoJJ
