I lived in this in the eighties. I ran out an purchased it when it first came out. It is a rose scent yet has a mystery to it. Very feminine. If you want to feel soft and lovely wear this. Men love this scent. I have not worn this in quite a long time and miss it. I have never failed on receiving a compliment on this beautiful fragrance. Oh and the bottle is pretty .

Floral fragrances and especially huge floral fragrances are at the very opposite of my fragrance range, considering my unchanged love of leather, smoke, amber, woods and dry spices notes (read Black, Knize Ten, Habanita, Histoire d'Eau and so on). I don't ever wear any properly floral perfume. And I don't like pink. ....Except for Paris! I cannot explain it at all but this enormous sparkling rose is completely addictive. It is so huge and shameless that it makes me laugh in awe at its indecent explosion of rose and violet notes every time I open the bottle. So every time I feel too dark or it is too grey and rainy outside, I bring in Paris. And the sky starts to rain pink Swarovski crystals! Indecent, loud and sparkling. Bring on the champagne!

Paris = Roses+ Powder + Hints of Violet. It says it has orange (and a bunch of other stuff too) but I can't smell it. On the sweet side but subdued enough not to induce a headache. I wouldn't wear it every day but I would miss it if it weren't in my wardrobe.

This is for the eau-de-Toilette - I used this years ago, and when I saw it at a really good price in the airport duty free (wandering around with time to spare due to a delayed flight - an inducement to spending more money!), I decided to re-purchase. Couldn't remember why I stopped using it before. Now I've been reminded! I like the fragrance initially, but as with a recent previous reviewer, it wears off after a short while on me. So it seems like a waste now, even though the price was good.

This review is for the eau de parfum version. So paris is very special to me, its what my mother wore while i was growing up in the 90's and no i don't agree this is not a grandma's fragrance at all, my mother is 43 and she still wears it! This is a very sharp perfume, very strong and flowery and i agree with some people it does have that 80's hairspray, makeup type smell, but i love it! i work for nightclubs in newcastle and EVERYONE compliments me when i wear this, it works well for clubbing as it last's all night and literally people can smell me before i walk in the room, definitely huge sillage which i love! if i'm 19 and can pull this off, anyone can! What fascinates me the most about this perfume is from first spray it never really changes, it stays strong and sharp. but honestly it really doesn't smell like a grandma type perfume, usually that's people's ignorant way of saying something doesn't smell fruity or like every other celebrity perfume out there, this is a classic fragrance, really great for nightlife/party/special occasions type perfume. I hate when i run out of this stuff, always have a spare on hand, i'm addicted and its costly lol! EDIT: Oh and by the way i just got my body lotion to match this edp and its amazing, smells very similar yet heavier rose, beautiful for layering.

EDIT 14/03/2014: If you wanna smell amazing along with the eau de parfum, have the body creme and eau de toilette on hand. what i do is spray the eau de toilette on my body, bottom of my back, behind my legs, shoulders etc. . .then lock the scent in with the body creme, then i spray the eau de parfum on my pulse points ensuring i smell heavenly until the next day. French women typically spray their perfume on dry skin and lock the scent in with their lotion, creme etc, its a classic and beautiful ritual. Now i did mention i had the body lotion in a previous review, but thats better for day wear, the body creme is so much richer and just devine, heavily scented too. A few of my guy friends recently told me my paris perfume is what they associate with good times and partying, and i love that! It's the scent of clubs, champagne, makeup, hairspray and all the glamorous aspects of life, It's Yves Saint Laurent Paris.

EDIT 27/04/2014 In my first review I said this smelt of rose and it kind of does but it's rose and violets, strange formula that reminds me of champagne and makeup. My choice is still the eau de parfum, the sillage and longevity can't be matched, I was wearing this around the house yesterday and it leave's a cloud of fragrance wherever I go which is amazing.

Was really surprised at how dissapointing this was. Maybe my skin chemistry but I found it very cloudy. I couldn't even figure out if it was sweet, powdery or floral? It seemed a wash of everything and very dull at that.

I love rose, and i love an edt with some strength and staying power! Although my fiance hates it, I like it quite a lot :)

Definitely a grandma's perfume, this fragrance brings you back to the 80's. All I could smell is dirty powdery smell.

This smells absolutely lovely and super feminine, like vintage roses. I love it.
However, just like it's counterpart "Parisienne", this wears off in about 5 minutes on me... Too bad.
