Yves Saint Laurent Paris

Originally uploaded by Atreau.

Ah Paris, How I love Paris! Having never been to Paris I don't know exactly what the city smells like but I'm sure it's all this and more!

The notes in Paris are:

Top: Bergamot, Geranium, hawthorn, Hyacinth

Middle:: Mimosa, Rose, Violet, Lily of the valley

Base: Cedar, Sandal, Heliotrope, Amber

It is a beautiful floral bouquet that surrounds the predominant rose. It's not a new rose, but one that's had more time to mature - a very deep rose. It's topped off by soft woods.

I just adore this as an all day fragrance during warmer months but it's is suitable year round. It's simply beautiful and I believe will always be in my collection.

This is the fragrance that can be worn to a multitude of occasions be while in your pajamas while watching Turner Classic Movies or to a formal summer wedding.

It retails for $55/1.6oz or $66/3.4oz and is available at most department stores or through Sephora.

It is pretty but I need to retest this as I am now an official rose perfume fan!
I became bored with this last year and didn't pull it out all autumn or winter but absence made the heart grow fonder and the love affair is rekindled!
