Sirene by Vicky Tiel c1994

Sirene by Vicky Tiel: launched in 1994.


From Vicky Tiel:
"Vicky Tiel’s premier fragrance, Sirene was created as a scent of pure seduction.  The intoxicating oriental blends fresh fruit, woods and amber with a floral bouquet to create an undeniably captivating scent that exudes femininity and irresistible temptation."


Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? It is classified as a powdery floral oriental fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, orange, geranium, peach
  • Middle notes: rose, violet, jasmine, jasmine, peony, ylang-ylang
  • Base notes: musk, sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla



I have a couple vintage bottles of the original fragrance from Parlux from the giftset above, I think this is a beautiful fragrance, very cozy, at first spray it reminds me of Red Door by Elizabeth Arden, but better. A nice powerhouse floral fragrance for winter and sweaters. It has a lovely baked cherry pastry dough facet in the drydown which smells almost edible and reminds me of L'Heure Bleue by Guerlain. The marriage of jasmine and sandalwood are reminiscent of Samsara by Guerlain. I cannot stop sniffing my wrist!


Bottles:


The beautiful perfume bottle used for Sirene was designed by Pierre Dinand and manufactured by Verreries Brosse. The bottles are amphora shaped and feature nudes along a frosted background, in the Lalique manner. Pierre Dinand took his inspiration from an antique perfume bottle.

Fate of the Fragrance:


The original formula was released by Parlux and was sold to Five Star Fragrances in 1997. Today, you can still find Sirene, in both its vintage and its newest formulation. The older bottles are frosted glass, the newer bottles do not features the frosted finish.
