Paler than I thought it'd be. Nectarine, light rose, a nice stable base that's too indefinite to describe but is probably mossy wood or the ghost of mossy wood. Very faint. I was expecting something glittering and golden, with an original name like Champaign, but this is not really it. Still, I find myself trying it again. Perhaps it is growing on me. Nice, but didn't strike me as particularly spectacular and yet....I'll have to keep sampling.

Smells more like bucks fizz (champagne mixed with orange juice and other fruit juice) than straight champagne. I like my champagne dry and straight, this is tempered with fruits and therefore a tad too floral / fruity. Of all the champagnes I have drunk, none smell like this. Given all the hypes it was given by blog and perfume writers, it's a disappointment for me. It does capture the bubbly sensation pretty well though. If YSL were an Italian company they could have renamed it bellini, it would have been more befitting.

I have had multiple bottles of Yvresse (ne Champagne) off and on since the mid-1990s. It is a fruity-floral fragrance as evidenced from the notes below. Given its marked fruitiness, I had never thought of it before as being a chypre until a fellow perfumista mentioned that, but now that I am looking for chypre notes, I can detect them in the drydown along with a somewhat yeasty fragrance. Mostly though, Yvresse is a sparking perfume that smells mostly like an effervescent concoction of nectarines and litchi to me.


A distinctive thing about Yvresse is that it is always in a good mood. Sometimes that relentless chipper-ness (kind of like having an incessantly optimistic friend around) is annoying but most of the time I find Yvresse to be a complement to my own good mood or it gets me out of an occasional funk. Also, I am not a perfume bottle person but I think Yvresse has one the most stylish bottles around. I find the heft, textures, sassy gold color and even the twisted metal detailing to be chic and charming.


Here are Yvresses notes, as gleaned from various perfume websites: Top: Anise, Nectarine, Mint; Middle: Blue Rose, Otto, Litchi; Base: Patchouli, Oakmoss, Vetiver.

This smells apple-y to me. Like a green apple scent. It is an unusual floral. However, it's not for me - I prefer a bit more spice, plus apple scents don't agree with me. But my friend gets compliments on this.

My all time favourite scent, ever since it came out--has it been ten years already?? I had a bit of a crisis when they changed the name, I thought it had been discontinued. It just smells 'bubbly' and happy, yet sophisticated--just so different, in a good way, from all other scents (except, I must admit, that demeter ginger-ale reminds me of this with respect tot the 'bubbles')
