Very feminine, not overwhelming (if applied with a light hand), clean and uplifting. It is probably more appropriate for spring and summer, but as a light spritz can be worn at the office, any time.

After reading Chandler Burr's book, "The Perfect Scent," where he gives a wonderful nod to YSL's " Paris", I had to buy it, to try it again. If there were green roses, I imagine they would have a fragrance similar to Paris. It's more subtle, too, but lasts longer. Then change into a lovely long black skirt with a silk bodice, and you don't need to change your perfume. I’ve got a miniature that says Paris but the cap is pink, so I don’t know if I’m reviewing the right version. Shop for Yves Saint Laurent at Ulta Beauty. Lovely if you love roses and florals. A lady can wear Paris when she is relaxing, feeling casual, enjoying some freedom in her day, and just wants to smell pretty. it is very long lasting. It was a fragrance mainstay of the day. It’s not bad enough for me to give it a neutral review. Glamourous as it is, Paris EDT is surprisingly airy to my nose. Whatever that is, make sure to do YOU. Paris is a reworking of an old early-modern trope of perfumery - the rose-violet, but in conception and form it's very much a perfume of the late twentieth century.

Told them it was Paris to which they added "could you take that off before we go out." It didn't look horrible on my skin but it didn't look great either. Whilst her compositions ofter work rather well, they all seem to share a rather chemical and strident nature. Overall a nice, fascinating scent, initially soft and elusive with a warm and creamy personality, not that sophisticated - on the contrary, it starts more like a lively, young, cozy and friendly scent, with a light and "urban" elegance underneath; then it becomes more and more mature, austere, feminine and sensual, with shades arising all over and all notes getting denser and spicier, and finally, like a dawn, it opens on a luminous, radiant and sophisticated drydown.

I'll have to try another bottle, I just can't believe that we're talking about same Paris... A Tale of the Parisian Sisters Y.S.L Paris & Dior Diorissimo both French and exudes Glamor yet very. Both my husband and sons remarked "what is that smell??" I doubt if the EDP has the same texture, though. Deep, dark - like I imagine a winter afternoon in Paris might be, as I've never been there. This process is automatic. After reading Chandler Burr's book, "The Perfect Scent," where he gives a wonderful nod to YSL's " Paris", I had to buy it, to try it again. A beautiful rosa canina and powder scent that is a bit vulgar at first, but mellows considerably upon drydown. One of the few perfumes that is 80’s in style, size and exuberance but can still be worn today without irony. Email & Text Signup. review by thanks sixx. Everyone back then loved it, everyone wore it. Is it a dash of color, a warm set of smile, an outgoing energy that makes the world fun and exciting? Shop by Brand.

Featured Brands. Beautiful packaging and marketing. Free shipping and samples available. As minutes pass it then becomes more "balanced" and familiar, a floral-herbal chypre with a waxy-powdery side of orris root and violet on soft resinous woods - which in turn, after one hour or so again turns towards a bolder soapy-powdery mix, with a remarkable presence of tonka, cardamom and vanilla, and a light fresher breeze of flowers and herbs, "colouring" this creamy gourmand concoction. Beautiful long lasting fragrance. []))). This olfactory tribute to the parisian way of life is a classical aldehydic floral-chypre with a woody powdery dry down. The true 80s Paris was indeed a roaring beast that would tackle you to the ground in a pink powder swirl and stuff your throat with roses. It has a floral-type of sweetness, and it smells perfume-y. Everyone back then loved it, everyone wore it. Gorgeous Hair Event. When I first sprayed this one on, I wasn't sure how I felt about it.

Find a Store. At first, I was almost repelled by the overwhelming rose note and the aggressive alcohol vapors. On top of that, I have yet to find a scent by Sophia Grojsman that I like.... That all said, Paris is an amazing scent, a screaming rose chypre with violets and orange blossom in a supporting role. The body powder & lotion are also lovely - I do not normally care for perfumed lotions or powders, but these smell true to scent. Please enable Cookies and reload the page.

I received my bottle of EDP from Neiman Marcus tonight, and eagerly sprayed it on my inner wrists, the crook of my arms.......... Delightfully, Paris still smells as I remember......I don't think any major reformulations have been done. It has a slight, syrupy sweetness - almost honeyed. However, surely worth a try. I own this as EDP & parfum. Clean rose, a smudge of violet, shimmery green to lighten the mix. Paris gains a woody, musky quality in drydown, but remains true to the artifice and exaggeration of its era and is proudly an 80’s Huge Floral.
