Summer
Soleil is such a good name for this, one sniff and I'm ready for a day out in the sun somewhere. Lovely pear and tangerine start you off with a zing, followed by summery florals, with a smooth elegant warm wood finish. Maybe not a great perfume from this house but I love it nevertheless for the feelings of joy and anticipation it manages to envoke in me. Picnic on the beach anyone?

Dreamy dust motes playing in the sun
The first thing I notice after applying Soleil de Rochas iscedarwood accompanied by a mixture of fruity and flowery scents that is hard to pick apart. I can identify pear and a bright and tangy citrus note - mandarin.
The flowers are more difficult. Rose is easy to recognize, tuberose and orange blossom stay undercover for now.
The cedarwood is still obvious, by the way.
Now I recognize the orange blossom: It's not freshly bloomed but dried! That takes away the prickly tangyness and makes it softer and enveloping.
All these notes combine again quickly into a serene, softly enveloping fragrance of a light sweetness that is gently powdery. Mellow, not sugary. And then it stays like that for a while.

Patchouli withholds itself and just contributes a slight shading, a gentle melancholy. Vanilla holds back as well, contributing only to this powdery softness and serenity. Something - the light woods listed? the pink pepper? adds a warm, enigmatic whiff of balsamic and resiny reliability.

The tuberose I perceive as an occasional brightly floral flash, otherwise it intertwines smoothly with the background.
The balsamic pepperberries, cedarwood and patchouli keep the airy composition grounded and give it a subliminal melancholic earnesty and thus keep Soleil de Rochas from being interchangeable.
Soleil de Rochas is not bright but serene, young but for all ages.
It is not a demanding or strenuous scent, but a cahrming and serene companion that makes me smile whenever I catch a whiff.
Its longevity is not impressive, after half a day I have to sniff it out conciously, otherwise I would not smell it anymore. Or you could spray it on more boldly than I usually do.

Even the oval-shapes bottle filled with a light orange liquid is serene in spite of its clear-edged shape that has nevertheless an element of playfulness: The bottom is not straight but rounded so that it rocks!
I also like the promotional film that sports a playfulness that is more dreamy than romantic.
