Isabelle d’Ornano, her children Philippe, Elisabeth and Christine have just announced that their beloved husband and father passed away on 25 September 2015 at the age of 89.

Hubert d’Ornano was the founder of Sisley Paris, a leading French high-end cosmetics brand. In 1976, he launched Sisley with a novel idea: relying on technological advancements to use the best aspects of plants and essential oils in beauty products.

At his side since the company’s beginnings, his wife Isabelle d’Ornano has been particularly invested in the creation of the products and the brand’s image. Two of their children have worked with them for more than twenty years: Philippe d’Ornano is Chairman and Christine d’Ornano is Managing Director, supervising marketing strategy and running the Great Britain office.

I express my most sincere condolences and deepest sympathy to Madame Isabelle d’Ornano, her children and their families.
