This is a beautiful multi-floral perfume with features rose. It's very pretty and feminine, yet there is something about the combination of scents that makes it still sophisticated and not boring like some other single-note floral perfumes. It's something that you can ear day or night as it's not too overpowering. Even though I got to know this perfume when I was at university, it's one that is timeless and you can get away with wearing at any age.
This exquisite fragrance from YSL has been a long time favourite of mine.
To be honest, I'm a sucker for any fragrance, body product, or skincare range that strongly feature Roses. I truly love the aroma and find myself gravitating to Floral perfumes with a predominant Rose note.
In fact Paris was the first Rose based perfume I tried, way back in the 1980's. I loved it so much, it kickstarted my love affair with most things Rose based.
Paris has other equally delightful floral notes i.e. Violet & Iris, has a dash of citrus with Bergamot and is grounded with Sandalwood, Vetiver & Vanilla. It's a magical combination of notes that are beautifully blended into the best Rose based fragrance on the market.
I've owned this a number of times over 30 years & feel my fragrance collection is incomplete if I don't have a bottle on my dresser. A true fragrance classic every woman deserves to own!
This is my favourite perfume! it is such a classic floral scent which is not too light and not too heavy that lasts all day long. Even my husband compliments me when I wear it. I would absolutly recommend this product, and have already done so to my neighbour who also loves it, to anyone who enjoys a nice elegant scent.
What's not to love about this perfume. It's my go to when I want a lovely sweet girlie scent. I've been using it for years and I find it can be worn in Summer or Winter as it's not too heavy or too light. They must be doing something right as the formula hasn't changed in years.
This is one of my all time favourite fragrances, its the first fragrance my husband ever gave me and since I receive a bottle every valentines day. I love its sweet feminine smell, it has timeless appeal and is hard to beat to feel pretty, its not too strong and its light floral scent is so romantic. I highly recommend buying this to feel pretty and feminine
Whenever I wear this I am transported to my early twenties - a carefree and exhilarating time in my life. Full of possibilities, rich in experiences and full of wonder. YSL Paris echoes that time in it's notes - layers of beauty and youth, a classic set in a time I look back at with a smile. It never fails to lift my mood and make me feel just a little bit like that young woman whose whole future was laid out in front of her. A beautiful spring fresh floral, a dew soaked morning in Paris - divine!
The most floral of fragrances with roses, violets, bergamot and a hint of sandalwood. My cousin introduced me to this scent many years ago. I was in awe of her sophistication, so closely associate this with her natural elegance. I fell in love with it as much as she did but it was subtly different on each of us. I really like this about good perfumes: they don't overpower but adapt to you and become 'yours'. I don't wear this much in winter as it is a summer scent for me. Must come from the fact that I'd buy it duty free when leaving for overseas then wear it daily while enjoying long summer evenings in Europe. After a while all my luggage would be very subtly Paris-scented. To me this starts as a fresh floral fragrance that becomes warmer and deeper over time. I think it's a perfect scent to give to a younger girl.
I love this, it is my go to fragrance for a late-night or when I'm out to impress. The smell is complicated, sultry and feminine. Although, I have never been to Paris I do believe that this would be what it smells like: seduction, danger and confidence.
I was very keen to wear this perfume many years ago so I excitedly sprayed myself before work one day. My colleague kept saying throughout the day ' what's that smell!" I couldn't smell anything. "It smells like fly spray!". I still couldn't smell anything. And then in the tea room she proclaimed loudly, 'Its' you, that smell". So much for impressing the crowd with an expensive perfume!!! It wouldn't even kill flies! After I'd showered several times I relegated the Paris perfume to the laundry to spray on my wash. Life lesson learned, always get someone else to smell the perfume on you before buying.
To me, this will always be a fragrance that defines the elegance and beauty of Yves Saint Laurent. This perfume is a really light, floral fragrance that reminds me of the fresh blooms and perfumes of the Spring season, when the flower buds turn into fragrant petals and the grass becomes a vibrant green. These visions make this perfume a real experience to wear. It's that type of perfume that makes you feel all fuzzy inside yet instilled a sense of empowerment. While it is a light, floral Spring scent, it's incredibly elegant and sophisticated. It makes you feel like a real woman! A good perfume to me is not just one that makes you smell nice, but one that sends you on a sensory experience, and that is what the YSL Paris does for me. This is a scent that my mother used to wear, but don't let that stop you. This scent is for the everyday empowered, strong and beautiful woman. The sillage for this perfume is moderate I'd say. It's not something that will slap someone in the face when you walk in a room yet it radiates beautifully and gently around you. I'm only dropping one star for the price! I understand you get what you pay for, but on a student wage this fragrance is pricey. Because of that, it's a perfume I wear on very special occasions.
I ADORE this perfume. It is a classic. It is the perfect every day perfume. Not too overpowering. It has a lovely floral scent and has major lasting power throughout the day. I always have a bottle handy in my bathroom cabinet. Just love it. I would highly recommend this product to those who prefer a lighter, floral scent.
