The Muse wonders if the romance of Paris can be captured in a single bottle of fragrance and the answer is yes with Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau de Parfum.
Like the rose, Paris is about the romance, elegance, and sophistication of a city that has the charm of a small quaint village. The romance and softness of the rose and the beautiful city come together in this beautiful floral blend that’s sure to please those who like feminine perfume blends.
Jump ahead for the a review on Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne.
This October Yves Saint Laurent will launch Parisienne for women fronted by model Kate Moss. The blend was created by Sophie Labbé and is a soft, romantic scent sure to evoke memories of romance, love, and Paris (if you’ve had the pleasure of visiting or in your mind’s eye).
Although the top base of the fragrance is a fruity blend of cranberry and blackberry it’s the middle notes and heart that come out to play at first spritz. With a perfect heart of Damas rose you’ll quickly take note of the strong, floral blend of rose. The Muse is partial to rose in her fragrances as it tends to go a bit sweet and candy-ish due to my body chemistry. The heavier base note of rose is slowly blended in with hints of powdery violet which is every so subtle causing the rose to become more floral and pronounced.
After dry down you’ll notice that the scent morphs into a slightly woodsy erotic blend. It contains hints of patchouli which I’m not partial to but the rose manages to blend out any harshness from the herb evoking a more masculine mystery that tops the feminine core.
For the most part the blend manages to keep it’s strong note of rose which is what I enjoyed so much about the scent. Although rose can be heavy and cloying this manages to remain soft, romantic, gentle, and beautiful. The simplicity of the crystal cut bottle with golden motif and YSL emblem makes a beautiful edition to your vanity and is matching with the charming perfume itself.
If you’re a lover of rose scents that have a slightly complex edge yet manage to remain feminine and floral, Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne should appeal. Considering it’s an Eau de Parfum it carries a strong throw and lingers quite long with two or so sprays. The Muse liked it very much and is Muse Approving it for purchase.
It’ll be available in October for your purchasing pleasure in various sizes in prices ranging from $39 to $85.
