PARIS — Sisley is coming out with a wardrobe of fresh scents for women.
The French beauty brand’s latest project is a trio of Eau de Sisley fragrances. Each chypre scent was inspired by a different type and color of imaginary summer dress.
“Mrs. [Isabelle] d’Ornano wanted things gay and fresh,” explained Delphine Fraignaud, Sisley’s international marketing director, referring to one of Sisley’s co-founders. She also wanted them to be bubbly and sunny.
Eau de Sisley 1 is meant to be like a dress made of sunshine, according to the firm. It has top notes of green mandarin, grapefruit, pink peppercorn and spices. In the heart, there’s water jasmine, green tea and juniper berry notes. And at the base are notes of patchouli and musks.
Eau de Sisley 2 is intended to be the olfactive embodiment of a dress of white flowers. It’s comprised of top notes of cardamom, bergamot and basil. In the heart are water lily, Egyptian jasmine, cyclamen and rose notes. Meanwhile, patchouli, vetiver, cedar and sandalwood notes are in the base.
Eau de Sisley 3 was inspired by a low-cut dress and includes top notes of bergamot, mandarin, grapefruit and lemon. In the heart are crimson ginger and osmanthus notes. And notes of patchouli, vetiver, benzoin, vanilla and musk make up the base.
Givaudan worked with d’Ornano on scents number one and three, while Symrise created number two with her.
Advertising will appear as single pages. The Eau de Sisley bottles were created by Polish sculptor Bronislaw Krzysztof.
Although Sisley executives would not discuss sales projections, industry sources estimate the trio of scents will generate $20 million in wholesale revenues in the first 12 months worldwide.
The fragrances will be introduced globally in April, following 10-day exclusives in Paris’ Bon Marché and London’s Harrods department stores.
Each 100-ml. eau de toilette spray bottle retails for 100 euros, or $133 at current exchange, in France.
Eau de Sisley joins a portfolio of fragrances that includes Eau de Campagne, Eau de Soir and Soir de Lune.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
