The solar eclipse L'éclipse solaire
Sonia Rykiel. No, she may not have been one of the prettiest designers of the time who shaped the world of fashion. She had the most piercing and coldest grey-green eyes I had ever seen. At that time already made up in Smoky-Eyes look. Her coral red hair always looked like after a fight with a cat. The primary color of her clothing was predominantly black. Mostly she wore dresses and long skirts. On the thin lips, from which usually only half a smile escaped, there was a bright red lipstick. And her pale complexion seemed ghostly and not exactly healthy even then. Her personal look would be called Black-Avantgarde in fashion today. No, she was not the prettiest, but she was one of the most charismatic, mysterious and remarkable fashion icons of the 80s. She brought knitwear fashion to the catwalks of the world and became famous all over the world with her black and white creations. In 1979 she launched her first own perfume called 7e Sense. A perfume in whose fine meshes one can quickly become entangled! Sometimes we get closer to a designer than we might like by wearing their perfume. Sometimes we look so deeply into his soul that we think we are drowning in it. But some perfumes you don't just wear, you are worn. Or as in the case of Sonia Rykiel's 7e scythe, simply carried away and surrounded by the deepest, most protected darkness!
7e Sense
The perfume begins quite harmlessly at first with lots of fragrant aldehydes, but that soon changes. Overzealous jasmine and various other floral notes of cloves and daffodils emerge. Fruity notes creep in. A slight sweetness gently resonates. In this case it is the ripe smell of peaches. All previous notes still move for a while in airy heights, until they are literally torn down into the ground. Dark tones of patchouli come up like dark shadows. It smells of moist, warm earth and of soft, smoky peat. The scent of darkest, green-brown mosses mixes with herbaceous-spicy coriander leaves. Everything is accompanied by a deep olfactory, animalistic rumble of leathery castoreum and sour civet. Comparable to a predator which raises its lips and fangs in a threatening manner and which produces a deep warm, threatening or lustful humming sound. There is literally danger in the air here!

Conclusion
With what does 7e scythe best compare? Best comparable is 7e Sense with a solar eclipse. Your own glow is darkened by the perfume like a mist of mysterious, fragrant anti-matter. One is literally swallowed up by it. But not quite! A delicate, luminous outline of the personality remains. This may sound bad, but it is by no means bad. Through this mighty shadow that lies on you, you feel very safe and protected inside. Peace, silence and incredible power pulsate in the centre of darkness. You feel almost a little invulnerable! Whatever Sonia Rykiel wanted to say with her signature scent will probably remain her secret forever. It seems to me that she has made this scent solely to protect herself. To protect against what's lurking out there! She has knitted such a fine, tightly woven, black net of melancholic and somber notes that the fragile soul almost disappears behind it. 7e Sense by Sonia Rykiel is for me personally spoken, probably one of the most melancholic, mysterious, profound and unfathomable perfumes I have encountered in a very long time
And that... may mean something!
