  • The evening affords me the best time to wear my special cocktail perfumes and I’m hoping to add this Parisienne eau de parfum up my fragrance alley
  • I found out my observation was correct in capturing that industrial note of the perfume, in fact, Parisienne contains some sort of lacquer or an alcoholic fume in the start of the scent
  • I love rosy fragrances and I’ve seen how it’s evolved through the years in perfumes, I must say, this perfume has invented a different variation of rosy notes
  • I enjoy the tarty scent of berries in this perfume sometimes, although it gets slightly sporty
  • But it still deserves to be worn in this generation and I recommend it because it’s relevant

      I’ve been waiting a long time to get this perfume. I was thinking it would somehow relive back my opium moments, in a contemporary mindset, so to speak. I’ve always known Yves Saint Laurent perfumes as defined and unashamedly sharp fragrances and I still go back to my old opium bottle every now and then to remind me of my own personal heritage when it comes to fragrances, because I started wandering the world of perfumes since discovering opium and other classic favorites. I live in a tropical setting so people are rather sensitive to ostentatious fumes. The evening affords me the best time to wear my special cocktail perfumes and I’m hoping to add this Parisienne eau de parfum up my fragrance alley. Upon sniffing the bottle in my hands, my initial impression was not so stellar, maybe I was too inclined on using opium and other classic ysl scents like paris as my key references, I was simply surprised that they threw in a whimsical fruity

      accent to the perfume.

      I sense an industrial feel to this perfume, instead of the lovely sensual flowers in Paris (the classic 80’s ysl perfume). Yes, it’s of modern taste but the fruity punch in the beginning doesn’t set it apart from the likes of mark Jacobs and the bulk of other fruity-floral perfumes flooding the fragrance market. At least, Christian dior’s miss Cherie was more deliberate than this. So if you’re going forth an exquisite path in perfumes, I’ll try something else. I found out my observation was correct in capturing that industrial note of the perfume, in fact, Parisienne contains some sort of lacquer or an alcoholic fume in the start of the scent. It’s like the materialistic smell of new items and airconditioned merchandise displayed in the store or a mall which remains and only comes off after you’ve washed them.

      What I find personally likeable about this perfume is the presence of rose and sandalwood notes – two of my topmost favorite scents in the world.


      • And I’m slowly beginning to love this perfume now. I love rosy fragrances and I’ve seen how it’s evolved through the years in perfumes, I must say, this perfume has invented a different variation of rosy notes. It’s darker, a bit polluted by the lacquered accord of the scent. But I see the concept behind it. It was something new, despite the trashy-ness of the berry notes at the beginning. I also thought it was too edited. I tend to lose the rosy notes on my skin but the woody base makes up for it.

        The combination of sandalwood and musk somewhat clicked to me, rather as always. I anticipate the woody base as the bottom fragrance notes slowly reveal themselves. I enjoy the tarty scent of berries in this perfume sometimes, although it gets slightly sporty. The concentration is a bit thick for day time use but you can regulate the perfume by spraying just once. I like the spray which

        dispenses enough of the perfume. I prefer to wear this perfume in the evening because it can go from casual to dressy. I still struggle to recognize the rosy notes, at times it’s gone and a different floral scent emerges then it comes back again. I wish it was more defined.

        In terms of sillage, the perfume lasted an average length of time. For the ysl fragrance devotees, Parisienne may come as a surprise. But it still deserves to be worn in this generation and I recommend it because it’s relevant. It comes in a diamond cut flacon, very French indeed. I got one for only 35 dollars – the advantage of buying perfumes once they’re overdue. I guess one of the major reasons why we wear perfumes is to make us feel important, that’s exactly how this perfume makes me feel. Parisienne is both suitable for the whimsy and the elegant. It’s a rosy moody fragrance for the girl in every woman’s heart.

    the smell last hours and even after I wash it is still there, not as strong as I put it at first but still smell it there light and refreshing.
