L’Eau Rêvée d’Hubert: A Personal Experience

I first encountered L’Eau Rêvée d’Hubert by Sisley in a chance encounter at a boutique. The sleek black bottle with its contrasting translucent cap caught my eye, and the name itself, “Hubert’s Dream Water,” intrigued me. As I spritzed the fragrance on my wrist, I was immediately transported to a world of fresh, green meadows and sun-drenched forests.

The opening notes of mint, shiso, and bucchu burst forth with an invigorating coolness, reminiscent of a crisp morning breeze. This initial burst quickly gave way to the heart of the fragrance, where the star ingredient, Egyptian geranium, took center stage. The geranium’s floral and airy facets blended seamlessly with its warm, peppery undertones, creating a complex and captivating aroma.

As the fragrance dried down, the earthy and woody base notes of patchouli, moss, and ambroxan emerged, adding depth and intensity to the scent. The overall effect was a perfect balance of freshness and sophistication, a fragrance that felt both natural and refined.

Wearing L’Eau Rêvée d’Hubert throughout the day, I found it to be both calming and energizing. The green and herbal notes provided a sense of tranquility, while the spicy and woody base notes gave it a touch of boldness. It was a scent that felt appropriate for any occasion, from a casual day out to a special evening event.

Beyond the fragrance itself, I was drawn to the story behind L’Eau Rêvée d’Hubert. The fragrance is a tribute to Hubert d’Ornano, the founder of Sisley, and his lifelong love of nature. The use of geranium, a plant that d’Ornano cherished, adds a personal touch to the fragrance, making it feel even more special.
