Opus Oils Siren is a perfume in the Burlesque Collection. She’s described as chypre fruity-floral and that she is! When I wear Siren, I feel like a “performer” decked out in a scantily about of sequins and wearing a big, white feathered headdress. I feel like I’m a follies gal…yeah, burlesque, but, you know, I always keep it classy.
Siren has naturally fruity aldehydes that sparkles like rhinestones at the opening. I also get a figgy coconut that adds so much warmth. The fruits really start to stand out. They are classic oriental, slightly spicy and rich like Rochas Femme. When I say fruits, I’m talking about the things you sniff in popular, mainstream fruity-florals. Siren is sophisticated and mature. The indolic jasmine appears mixing with the stewed plum and some spice. This is sultry. The dry-down, which I notice many hours later, is a dry, mossy jasmine. Very old-fashioned and very good. See – Siren is a chypre fruity-floral. Imagine your favorite chypre decked out in Porter Wagoner gear. Imagine.
Notes listed include sweet pear, Asian plum, jasmine, ylang-ylang and oakmoss. PERFUMER – Kedra Hart
Give Siren a try if you like old-fashioned jasmine fragrances or if you want your chypre to dazzle and blind with a healthy amount of sequins and rhinestones. Or if you like fragrances like Calvin Klein Escape, Estee Lauder Beautiful, Dior Diorama, Annick Goutal Passion and/or Rochas Femme. None of these are exactly like Siren, but I could see you liking one of those and liking Siren.
A variety of sizes are available with prices ranging from $30-$150. I reviewed the oil. An EDP is also available if you prefer alcohol based perfumes. You can get it at Opus Oils.
