Sonia Rykiel: 1930-2016

Sonia Flis is now more. The French designer better known as Sonia Rykiel has left this vain world. Her quirky and intellectual style will be remembered fondly. Her perfumes will continue to grace our wrists and necks in fond remembrance. From Le Parfum to 7eme Sens and on to Rykiel Woman Not for Men and Belle en Rykiel...Chapeau madame!

    I wore 7e Sens for a while as a vintage perfume, amazing really and I bought many dresses with colored stripes with look great on tall women. She will be missed!


  2. I never could afford the dresses but I did have her perfumes. RIP Sonia...and Heaven must be more fragrant now than ever.

  3. Lovely capture of the essence of this woman, Sonia.

  4. Oh I am so sorry to read this .... when I think of her I think of Stripes!!!

  5. Thank you all for your kind comments. I loved her quirky and intellectual style that played with stereotypes and miss the fragrances which have been discontinued. :-(

  6. This is such a great post and such a nice product. But truth be told, recently I came across Cologne for Men and ever since I have been stuck with it or should I say that it has stuck with me. If you too are looking for something branded yet affordable, check out for sure. Thanks for this incredible article.

  7. "...this vain world".
