I am a sucker for anything Rose and a pretty bottle. Check and check. This smells amazing, floral but not overly so and nothing to remind me of Grandma. I love the pink juice, but my main complaint is the staying power. This has none! It's gone in about 2 hours. I wish they made a stronger formulation. I also have Bulgari Rose Essentielle, which is similar to this, but that one lasts all day. But whatever, I still like it and will continue to use it! I would love to have the lotion to layer with and test the lasting power that way, it could be better.
Besides the fact that I loathe the hideous YSL sticker, the perfume smells amazing. I am not a perfume expert and I can't tell you all the notes, but trust me, this perfume is unique. The smell is not common in the market so there is few comparisons. The last thing you want is to smell exactly like a few hundred other people around you on the street. =)
This is a nice perfume, dries down very powdery and soft. It reminds me of my mother, but it just isn't me.
I have wanted this for a long time! And finaly I got it in a duty free shop! I adore this perfume! My favourite!
I really like this perfume!
It's so sweet and nice, it just makes everything better. I first tried this out when I was going to a social event with my friend and needed perfume. I liked the packaging, the pink color, and that it was YSL. So, I wore it and really liked it!
Somehow, YSL took a scent with notes that would be for the more mature set and made it a fresh, young perfume, though appropriate for all ages. I love that it's sweeter than you'd expect.
Perfect for everyday use or just going out for dinner or a social event.
I first smelled this on a mazine strip and I was in love. I couldn't throw the magazine away because I kept smelling it and after the scent had faded (yes I smelled it that much) I was so sad and I knew I had to go buy it. I went to Macy's and got the set with the perfumed body lotion and the mini eu de toilette. I absolutely love thie perfume it reminds me of baby powder, which is weird but it's a fresh girly kind of smell that I really enjoy.
Parisienne, to me, is reminiscent of Paris Roses de Bois, a Paris flanker from several years ago. Both combine a softer version of the Paris rose with berry notes. Parisienne is a little sweeter, fresher and less powdery than Roses de Bois. Lovely scent, and the bottle is gorgeous.
Unfortunately I don't get nearly the depth from Parisienne that others are lucky enough to experience. All I got when I sampled this was a sweet blast that smelled like a cross between peach and cotton candy. It only lasted a few minutes before it was completely gone, not a trace left behind. It was reasonably pleasant while it lasted but I was not surprised since, overall, I haven't had very good luck with the house of YSL. I can wear both Yvresse and Opium very well and that's good enough for me. No sale for Parisienne though.
I loved the way this smelled on the magazine scent strip, but when I got a sample from Sephora and sprayed it on me, I just did not care for it. It actually reminds me of something my mom used to wear when I was a little girl. It smells nice but just didn't work on me.
My husband bought this perfume for me for easter!!! yes, im a lucky girl :-)
From the moment i first sniffed this in a magazine sample I was hooked, sneaking moments during shopping to run into the pharmacy or perfume store to steal a sniff or 2 of this gorgeous scent.
Its definitely heavy on the damask rose which always used to remind me of the more mature lady but YSL have successfully engineered a perfume with damask rose for the younger generation & its perfect.
True, it may not last all day like some perfumes but i find reapplication is actually a treat!! This scent wafts for minutes once you have left a room.
