Just to let all my fellow MUAers know, this fragrance is coming back onto counters on the 23rd November as part of a 'Heritage Collection'. I know that for a fact about the UK; however, not too sure on the US. I know it's going to be 80ml for £69

One of my favorite summer scents! Not too sickly sweet and not too citrusy. I'll be the first to admit that I know nothing about notes, but to me it smells of grape and sandalwood. A scent that complements warm summer nights and has great staying power.

This was my first YSL fragrance. I have the original release and purchased the re-release as a backup just in case. This is a wonderful light spring to summer fragrance. Beautifully blended. The citrus note reminds me of the fresh citrus tang of the starfruit which I think is unique to fragrances. If you like Cristalle Eau Verte, Chance Eau Fraiche or Fresh's Citron de Vigne you may like this one.

Hmmm...i have this fragrance which I bought way back in 1998 on a trip to London.
Im not wild about this scent but it definitely has its moments. Its a limited edition so quite sought after. I certainly wouldn't use it as air freshner as another of the reviewers have said but its not my go-to fragrance either.
Quite woody smelling on some days, sweet smelling on others. Im neither here nor there on this one unfortunately...

In Love Again is that rare fragrance that was released twice, both times in limited editions. It is once again out of production and it is commanding high prices when it can be found.
I've always seen In Love Again as the last "great" classic of the YSL catalogue and as a bridge between the iconics and things like Cinema, Elle, and Parisienne. It's a more sophisticated scent than any of these and it preceded little sister Baby Doll by a year. The segue from In Love Again to Baby Doll is interesting, since the two are quite similar and yet ILA would not have appealed to the Baby Doll market. Where ILA Is sharp, Baby Doll is sweet. The drydowns diverge but the zesty opening grapefruit, abundant in both cases, is the same.
In Love Again, to my nose, features a tomato leaf note that is a perfect companion to the grapefruit. The tomato leaf is precise and as surprisingly perfect as putting one's nose to summer's most enticing fruit. It is perhaps this note that lets the grapefruit swing away from the garlic/sweat spectrum that spoils Guerlain's Pamplelune for me. In Love Again is a fragrance of seasonal imagination and evocation unlike any other. The scent is so wonderfully glazed in a summer greenhouse that a note of unripened peach skin is almost missed.
Not missed is basenote musk and plenty of it. Along with rose, this puts ILA into the same category as MPG Rose Muskissime (a brasher take) and Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau (very similar but fruitier). ILA is the most balanced of the three. A gentle but apparent sandalwood runs as a parallel line to the musk.
The real strength of In Love Again is in how it holds up to summer heat. Once past the opening tomato leaf and grapefruit notes, the rest of the fragrance is as hazy and as aromatically complex as an August afternoon. A true standout that never found a decent market.

This is my everyday scent - i normally hate fruity/summery scents - but this one is different - it's not sickly like a lot of them. And no watermelon - i hate watermelon fruity perfumes! The fragrance is not too overpowering, which makes it lovely for everyday - and is also good for my very sensitive pregnant nose at the moment (I had to throw out a very expensive bottle of Prada because the smell made me sick just sitting on the bathroom shelf)

I received a sample of this and now, I would love to get FS bottle but apparently, it is really hard as mentioned by other reviewers, this is an LE item. Too bad.
I usually dislike citrusy scents as they are too sharp on me. However, I find myself very comfortable with this. Fresh but not sharp at all. This makes itself stand out from other perfumes because it is not as sweet. I don't like sweet perfumes, which IMO is too girly for me. LOL.
Staying power is not bad as an EDT. It lingers on me for like 8 hours during colder days here in Asia. Much shorter if it's summer...

Totally agree with Magicalmoongoddess in this one. Got bored of it very easily. Nothing remarkable about it. Yet another citrus fruity fragrance. No biggie. I use it as a room freshner now.

This perfume is just nice and right for daytime or even night time. It's really youthful,not fresh, but just so youthful, but this perfume suits people of all ages.And the bottle design is just so cute!!!

You younger girls really need to stop this "grandma" perfume bit. It's very insulting to older women generally - would you say it to your own grandmother's face? Believe it or not, the cosmetic companies actually make things for those of us who are past the ripe old age of 25 - and soon enough, you'll be "old" too, so perhaps you should start being a bit more respectful of your elders.
In any event, this is one of my very favorite scents, which of course means that it's apparently been discontinued again. The first time, I heard that so many people were upset that YSL took it off the market that they re-issued it, so why did they get rid of it again? The reviewer who described it as the scent of a grape arbor with the combination of green and fruit notes was spot on. It's very fresh, yet unique in the sea of today's overly sweet fragrances.

I have 3 words that describe In Love Again....'pleasant but unremarkable'. I get the grapefruit to start off with, drying down to a powdery (sandalwood) blackberry scent. So it's very fruity....not that there is anything wrong with that :-) However I just find it to be quite unremarkable....there is nothing out of the ordinary that defines this fragrance and makes it memorable or recognisable on anyone else. I have many perfumes so I don't wear this one very often....I can imagine getting bored of this one if I wore it too often. It's pleasant enough every now and again though :-)

in love again is youthful. pretty. sweet. slightly citrusy. warm. i don't often wear or buy scents because they make me gag when i'm wearing them. but this is one perfume that i'd definitely repurchase and douse myself in all over. i love it love it love it.

I had a generous sample of this fragrance. It is a nice grapefruit scent - similar elements to ysl baby doll but more "grown up" I am not generally a fan of fruity fragrances but this was quite nice - nice and light for summer without being too generic-fruity cheap smelling. I am not an expert on top notes, base notes etc. But this does have a more substantial base note on me, almost a little musky but for most of the day it definitely smells grapefruity and sweet. A nice option if you like grapefruit scents.

I find this scent quite heavy. IMO this is not a scent for a youthfull person. It always gives me an eerie feeling of tabacco. however, some people do compliment me whilst wearing it. The heart bottle is cute tgough

Great scent for a fresh, young and summery look. Can be a little boring if wore everyday, so it is an alternate fragrance, not an everyday one.

When Baby Doll was discontinued (temporarily?), I was told that this fragrance was the same thing, just a new name and bottle. Sooo wrong! This is way more fruity and grapefruit is much stronger. It just lacks the spice of Baby Doll - I miss the cinnamon, plus it seems stronger too. The bottle is also way less attractive! Baby Doll is still my favorite!

At first it's grapefruity, yet not in an unbearably sharp way, and then it mellows down. Not for me, but might work for someone else. [Fruity - Floral. Date of creation: 1998. Top notes: grapes, grapefruit, brimbelle. Middle notes: tulip tree, grapefruit, water lily. Base notes: blackberry, sandalwood, musk.]

*I am reviewing the Jasmin Etoile" version of YSL's In Love Again, the limited edition In Love Again for 2006
Notes include: Tangerine, grapefruit, jasmine*
This is a scent that is so fruity (no doubt due to the tangerine and grapefruit) but somehow manages to avoid being cloying, unlike Babydoll or Ralph by Ralph Lauren. The jasmine becomes apparent rather early in the fragrance, but I'm not complaining as I love Jasmine as well. The lingering scent is that of a mild musk, nothing too over-powering. A very pleasant fragrance. But I still prefer the original In Love Again, and 2005's Fleur de Passion. Wonder what they will come up next year.
