YSL Mon Paris Eau de Parfum

I’m happy to report I was absolutely overwhelmed with duty-free fragrance while on vacation! Hell, I was even daring enough to not indulge in not one but five Tom Ford fragrances. I tend to avoid Tom Ford fragrances as they are a bit too dark and harsh but I surprised myself and fell in love with a few after wearing them for several hours. Plus hey, duty-free prices helped a lot.

I’m also very, very excited to say there were a lot of newer releases available that haven’t yet hit our market here in New York (but should very, very shortly) such as Poison Girl. Screeching halt.

No, I’m not a Poison fan girl! But the allure of Poison Girl was too great to pass up as it is describe as a lighter gourmand compared to the original formula. So, yes, of course, I grabbed that up! Oh off topic, one that I didn’t see heavily promoted was Stella McCarney’s new Pop fragrance. For some reason, I felt that Pop would be a fragrance that would be heavily pushed for Fall 2016 and I thought it would be all over the place at duty-free shops but it wasn’t!

But moving on….

I think I was a bit overwhelmed with selection because I didn’t notice YSL Mon Paris Eau de Parfum but I’m betting they had it. I’m sad I missed out smelling it as I don’t think it hit counters yet even though it is readily available online at Ulta.com, Nordstrom.com, etc….!

This is a fruity little floral number with a dark undertone that includes notes of chypre and patchouli. The sweetness comes from strawberry, raspberry, and pear notes and of course, as with most YSL fragrances, their is a bouquet of floral notes that include orange blossom, jasmine, and peony. BUT wait there’s more! It also contains three types of white musk. I was somewhat floored by the mix of notes they have going on here. Orange blossom seems terribly out of place with fruit notes such as strawberry and deeper ones like patchouli. None the less count me curious about how it smells.

The campaign will feature Canadian model Crista Cober along with French actor Jeremie Laheurte (he was in Blue Is the Warmest Color, see it! It’s quite good if you’re a foreign film buff!).

I’ll be smelling it soon I’m sure and sharing my thoughts.

But if you already tried it do share yours!

If nothing else, I simply love the bottle!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I have Velvet Orchid and I loooooove it. I’m bad about collecting perfume and then not wearing it. My hubby’s nose is sensitive so I have to choose between indulging in smelling nice or not giving him a headache, lolz. 🙂

      Hey nat! what’s new? I’m slowly loving it 😀 I hated it before but obviously didn’t give it enough time develop, now that I actually own it, it’s beginning to grow on me! Awww!! Take them out and sniff them when he isn’t around 😀

        Actually, on a friend’s suggestion I started keeping a bottle at my work desk (right now it’s Marc Jacobs “Oh, Lola!”); that way I can put it on after we’ve parted ways for the day, and by the time I get home from work it’s dissipated enough to not bug his nose. 🙂

    I adopted this as my new daily perfume a few weeks ago here in the UK – it’s gorgeous! It wears for a long time and isn’t insanely floral, just a really lovely balance of fresh and warm. Haha, okay, I’m rubbish at describing perfume – suffice it to say I’m a fan 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

    I got the free sample of YSL Mon Paris from sopost when it was available online, I like it I mean it’s not very unique, there are so many fragances out know that smell similar to it but it kind of reminds me of B&B Raspberry Vanilla in the opening but when it tries down it kind of has a very dark and exotic musk fragrance which actually makes it different and worth buying in the end!
