I was privileged to try the new fragrance from Yves Saint Laurent that was recently launched this month, romantically named Parisienne.
YSL Parisienne is a refreshing revamp of the core character of YSL Paris-- a woody, refreshing floral perfume. Parisienne takes the basic combination of rose, wood, powder and fruit, and revamps this classic floral. Parisienne modernizes this combination by adding more fruit and a softly smoldering base of woods. Besides the official notes of Damask rose, violet, peony, cranberry, patchouli, vetiver, musk and sandalwood, it also contains urban and bold aromas of vinyl and lacquer.
The bottle reminds me of antique crystal salt and peppershakers =). I thought it was an old woman perfume but, no, it's young and fresh!
I expected an old, powdery floral, but I was surprised to realized that it is very modern and very feminine in the pink way.
Though it maintains the sensuality and sophistication of YSL Paris, YSL Parisienne is up-to-date and trendy. While making a nod to traditional florals (with rose notes, fruit notes, and powdered notes), YSL Parisienne is slightly more modern, youthful and tarted up for a sensual evening or night parties.
The berry notes are not too sweet at all, and the floral notes are modern and youthful. I know the description says there's a vinyl note, but I didn't catch anything of the sort ;). The entire composition is beautiful, romantic, bright, and makes me smile. I was really drawn to it!
It’s now available in various sizes in prices ranging from $39 to $85.
