If you had to make a cologne, you would naturally ask for some citrus fruit, maybe Grapefruit, maybe some nice Herbs, and you’d probably end up with something pretty cologne-y. Eau de Sisley 1 has done all of this, ticked all the boxes and gone a step further.
What’s the most refreshing drink you can have on a sunny day? Maybe a sparkling Gin and Tonic or an Iced Tea? Sisley has included both. Yes indeed, Eau de Sisley 1 has juniper from Gin and refreshing notes of Tea along with the requisite astringent Grapefruit giving this cologne a sparkle you will never tire of on even the most humid of days.
Cutting through the heat, this is bright and sparkling from the word Go and the hints of Juniper and herbs (Thyme to be precise) make this a botanical revitalizing delight.
Even the base note stays zingy, which is no mean feat where citrus is involved. In fact, I thought the base of had a lot of Vetiver in it, but in fact I was mistaking it for a combination of Herbs and Musk.
Lasting power is also pretty good for a cologne, I would say around five hours. Cost isn’t cheap (around 62GBP for 50ml), but you wouldn’t wear this out in Winter, so it would last you around a year if you rotated it with other scents. It’s unisex so you could always buy it for Father’s Day and “borrow” it , she wrote with a sly wink. (Innovative or shameless? You decide!)
My warm gratitude goes to friend of the blog meganinstmaxime for very kindly sending me this and many other wonderful hard-to-get samples. Thank you Megan!
