Opera stars, perfumes and suggestions: Maria Josè Siri


What’s your favourite perfume?

Eden by Cacharel, but I just learned they don’t make it any more!

Do you always buy the same perfume or do you like changing and trying something different?

I love changing fragrances and especially like perfumes with floral notes.  I’m not afraid of changing, but I always remain faithful once I find the right one.

What are the reasons why you like it? What do you like about it? Does it bring back any memories? What is it reminiscent of?

It’s intense with a certain, sensual depth.   It reminds me of a caress, lifting my mood and making me feel as though I were in paradise.

How did you discover this perfume? When was the first time you bought it? Where?

A former boyfriend gave it to me saying that he loved smelling it on me, and as a result I fell in love with the perfume…but not with the boy .

When do you like wearing it?

In the evening – it’s not a perfume for the daytime!

How do you feel when you wear it?

Once I’ve put on my makeup and made one last check in the mirror it’s time for my perfume – and then I’m truly ready to go out!

What opera character could wear your perfume? Or which opera character does this perfume bring to your mind?

Manon Lescaut, absolutely!

Eden is one of the most famous Cacharel fragrances, created by Jean Guichard in 1994. The opening blends luminuous citrus notes. The cold water freshness of water lily in the heart is combined with heady floral notes and sweet juicy fruits. The water notes are in the perfect harmony with sharp patchouli and warm woody base of cedar, sandal and Tonka bean.
