The perfume is named after Paris, the adored city of Yves Saint Laurent, who created it as a tribute to the Parisiennes who are always elegant, romantic, vivacious, ironic, simple and charming. Paris is a brilliant harmony of roses and violet flowers. This woody-floral starts with bergamot and violet, followed my may rose and iris at its heart, ending with sensational warmth of sandalwood. It was created in 1983. Here you can watch an advertising video for Paris by YSL. The nose behind this fragrance is Sophia Grojsman.

YSL Paris

I Love Paris In The Spring Time

This is the most powdery and aggressively floral fragrance I've ever experienced in my years as a perfumista. The scent is a profusion of roses, violets, iris, hyacinth, mimosa, orange blossom, lime blossom, geranium, nasturcia and amber. If you don't care for florals, then this is never going to be your perfume. When I first wore it, it gave even me myself a headache. The trick is to apply with a light hand. Just the littlest bit of this perfume will carry you through the day. Too much and it's toxic. I had a girlfriend who would douse herself in any perfume she bought and when she wore YSL Paris from head to toe I felt like putting on a gas mask! So ladies do yourself a favor and wear only a little bit of this. If you want to wear the hell out of it do it in private!

The notes it opens with are floral. I smelled a lime blossom and orange blossom which is both fruity and floral, citrusy, and delicious. There's a rose and geranium combination along with nasturcia and geranium. It smells of orange colored flowers and then the rose scent emerges. It's a powdery rose. Everything about this scent contains powder. It's a powdery iris and orris root, violets and heliotrope. Each of these flowers: rose, iris, violet and heliotrope convert into powder notes in perfumery.

The powdery effect is too strong for a boudoir perfume. It's more of a day time woman's scent. Smells like a sales girl at Macy's, who smells of all the perfumes in the department store mixed together! There's also a make-up purse scent. Everything you put into your handbag is here: powder puff, talcum powder, mirror with make-up kit, lipstick, and eyeshadow. The scent is like a beauty salon smell.

To me this smells like a French girl fresh out of the beauty salon and who is carrying a bouquet of flowers and goes out to Paris to find love. This fragrance matches up with the song I Love Paris In The Spring Time. It's a powerful aroma of flowers from here to ya-ya. There's nothing like this scent. Nothing.

EdP manuf 2014
Calvino, that is what I did, bought the edP unsniffed instead of the edT I fell for. Although it turned out well for me I can't recommend it. The edP has much more rose and violet and that makes it a bit sharp. The edT is softer and fluffy at once, rather linear. EdT is very discrete. EdP dries down to the same eventually and then it is a bit stronger. When I had them on simultaneously I smelled hairspray note in edT and I don't like that note so I am happy with my bottle. All in all this is a lovely rose. Fresh and powdery at the same time. It is one of the most powdery perfumes I have tried.

This was my mother's signature perfume. It used to give me such a headache whenever she put it on. It was so flowery and dusty, powdery, like actual talc powder in your face. The screaming florals lasted for hours and she would spray this on her body head to toe. I could never forget the smell. Fast forward from 1987 to 2016. I can finally appreciate this fragrance. This is a sweet powdery floral scent, not sexy or seductive, just cute and pretty, womanly. It smells a lot like pink roses. It's layered in floral notes of heliotrope, geranium, violet, iris, mimosa, linden lime blossom orange blossom and ylang ylang. The amber gives it a syrupy stickiness. This can be pretty powerful stuff so all I need is one spritz on my neck. It has a romantic air, and it smells of sugar and spice and everything nice. It's more girly than mature, just a sweet old fashioned powdery floral. I don't wear this out too much and prefer to wear it at home in my boudoir or to relax although I do like my boyfriend Stephen to smell it on me. He has put upt with all my perfumes so well! Paris is a sweet flower garden in the Jardins de Luxembourg, and if you're a fan of other big time floral classics like Quelques Fleurs, Beautiful by Estee Lauder, you'll love this. Great scent.

As a rose lover,powder lover and classic lover,yves saint laurent Paris was a must have for me..it's a shame that such a popular perfume is almost nowhere available where I live,I couldn't buy it even online(they all have parisienn but not the original Paris)finally I found an old,half used bottle
Paris opens with a wine like floral blast,lots of old fashioned florals,sharp,intensive and 80's style,I love rose in every form even when it's resembling a powder bomb,dewed in red wine,but I thought this is not something I can wear..sweet powdery rose and some bitter mimosa and green notes were dominant ones
Paris needs time as lots of other beautiful classics to settle down,I knew that I can't judge this book by it's cover(unlike some flat,superficial modern perfumes that don't grow on skin at all)
After almost an hour there it is,Queen of all powdery rose fragrances,I get a lovely,super gorgeous,very powdery floral bouquet,rose,hyacinth,violet,mimosa,iris and some tea..this soft rosey powder is very lipsticky,smooth,elegant,romantic,feminine,it's exactly what I wished and definitely wearable for young generation too...I can't explain such a pretty work of art with words,Paris is a perfume for a young,pretty woman,with a pretty classic makeup,it's classic but not dated..if you love florals,powdery scents,rose scents or classics you can't miss it..but use it with light hand and let it get warm with your body temperature
Longevity is great,sillage is big but just during first hours,then it's moderate,definitely noticeable... I prefer to apply it one hour before meeting people or going out,so that others aren't present in first phase,a dated powder bomb,they can inhale it's soft joyful beauty
I need to try bvlgari femme and lipstick rose if they are similar to this babe

Images from Paris, the Perfume.
Ivory silk turtle neck, atop black pencil skirt, long real pearls, simple gold hoops, patent black pumps and clutch. It´s april and she is going to a cafe. An American in Paris, in 1985. She has her long sandy hair drawn into a single ponytail, with a hermes black printed scarf, sunglasses on her head. She stops and buys a magazine ...Foreign Affairs... at the kiosk next to a lady selling bouquets of crimson roses and blue purple violets. It is near noon in a cloudless day and the city sparkles as she sips her citron presse. She has a crush on her colleague and is looking forward to their meeting.

This is too powdery for my taste and something is bitter in it. Very strong and warm floral perfume, it has a classic tone to it.
I can't enjoy it very well, as it is too strong.
There are better classic scents than this one.

This is one of the most unique, original fragrances out there. An absolute classic, YSL Paris has a beautiful, irresistible rose-sandalwood combination, a great citrus/woody aroma that is lush and romantic, and very distinctive. This used to be my mum's signature scent, and I recently bought a bottle on sale and the scent makes me absolutely nostalgic. This perfume perfectly balances the green/spicy divide, and is beautifully carried by the rose and violet. I would urge every perfume lover to try/buy this at least once in their life. I will certainly be getting another bottle when I'm finished.

That's a classic bold 80's floral. Rose and a powdery clean combination of iris-musk-violets are the dominant notes. It's quite a love or hate reaction to this fragrance. It's an all time classic for those who like intense florals and rose. I think this scent has no age limits and it's not banal. A classic that doesn't lose its value as time passes. Personally, I'm 24 years old and I love wearing this gem in early and lately spring. It is not a light perfume though. It's a powerhouse and In the summer heat it may be overpowering if oversprayed. Also, I don't find the rose smell synthetic but realistic. There is a smell of other flowers also but rose stands out most. Then the fresh and musky-violet-iris notes take place until the end of the scent's drydown. Finally, I believe that this is a must-have staple for classic big floral lovers! Romantic, fresh,clean,sophisticated,timeless and feminine but not girly scent. Its name represents perfectly what it is. I strongly recommend this for all romantic and elegant women!

PARIS is the artist’s impression of roses with many other flowers in the background. It’s a lovely, feminine fragrance that changes and delights over the many, many hours it stays with you. This isn’t a sweet floral – it has a coolness to it along with hints of green and woody notes. There are undertones of powder as well. It’s perfect for spring.

I have the vintage EDT. Although I’m usually aware of a fragrance’s sillage level, this is one that smells stronger to other people than it does to me. I stopped wearing it to the office when a colleague told me it gave him a headache. Luckily, my husband likes it.

It screamed of roses and violet very strongly, from first spray then through 6 hours or so. seemed quite linear, one noted. I hated it. I did however smell something lovely on a friend some years later, I asked her what she wore, she said Paris.. it may however have been one of the many varients that was bought out since. I tested this some years back - about 1990 and formulations change sometimes

Paris was the turning point in my perfume journey. Before Paris I was only into very sweet perfumes where sugar abounded. After smelling Paris, I fell in love with rose and more elegant perfumes. I love the powdery and lipstick scent, makes me envision an Old Hollywood film star. A classic scent, the rose and violet are stunning and this fragrance is deservedly an icon.

I smelled this beautifull perfume when it came out in 1983. I was quite intruiged, I dont normally like fruity sweet perfumes, but this is a fantastic effort made by Sophia G.
I kept a small residue of the original release to sniff once in a while.

Review for the current EDP Paris in production.

If you were to choose between the modern formulations, the toilette or the parfum, grab the parfum. Its more like the vintage EDT without the opening strong punch. Its richer and fuller but not over bearing. Its still a lovely soft feminine scent.

I dont know why there isnt a listing for the parfum EDP, so Ill just leave it here to hopefully help anyone deciding with the current EDP or EDT formulations.

Violets, roses and sandalwood are the main players. If you like violet this is a good one.

Always found paris v recognisable and I've always quite liked it, pleasant rose and violet smell.... however spritzed a little on myself in work the other day and colleague asked me later who had sprayed the nice air freshener!!! On reflection it is a little synthetic smelling and I'm sure there are nicer rose fragrances available.

This is a lovely, classic fragrance. It starts with a powdery rose with a sugared violet, very "inside of the purse" smell, that un powdery floral note. I've decided that ylang ylang is part of that powdery impression too. The next notes to appear are a hyacinth-lily of the valley accord, a very spring-like and feminine smell; it is similar to Sung by Alfred Sung, and Fidji by Guy Laroche. YSL's Paris develops a bit more indolic than Sung, with less sandalwood; and is not as green as Fidji stayed--but for those who love that style of complex, spring-bloom florals, this is a good one.

Longevity was impressive, at 11 hours it is still quite present on my wrist. Sillage was fair to strong, possibly too strong for work but it was lovely on this rainy spring day. This would be a great Easter scent, possibly a good bridal scent, and yes, even a good scent for a spring fling in Paris.

Vintage review:
This is for the 1985 edt Paris spray.
I was lucky to find an original formula bottle. I wore it in late 80s and remember it knocking me over with the opening crush of florals.

Its a light, fresh scent perfect for spring. Extremely feminine in a girly way. I'm delighted to smell violets , rose and other flowers ...instead of the sugary fruity patchouli frags dominating the market right now.

Romantic but not sexy. The amber and spicy sandalwood peeks through the flowers into a beautiful drydown.

Just romantic for spring.

Effervescent, clean, sweet, fresh, sparkling rose and violet. Some may find the wine-like opening sharp but it soon fades into a warmer, creamier, muskier drydown. Paris is classic but not overly serious, because it's so bright and cheerful... it calls to mind morning sunlight reflecting off wet cafe sidewalks, the light, humid shimmer of last night's rain evaporating in the summer sun, bright pink roses displayed at corner shops, and gleaming white bathtubs full of rosy, iridescent bubbles with a side of champagne. I was a baby when this perfume first came out, so I don't associate it with high school or the 80's ubiquity so many others probably do, however it still invokes some 80's/early 90's nostalgia- this is what clean and shiny smelled like to me in that time! Because of the bright sharpness of this scent, it's best not to overapply- after all, this isn't one of today's body-spray strength, zero-longevity EDTs; it'll stick with you for the day and leave a souvenir in the morning.

Flower shop. I made the mistake of sticking my nose into it when I had just sprayed it on my arm and boy, was that ever pungent. Now I can still detect some notes of cat pee which I think will fade over the coming hours. I was not surprised to learn that this came out in 1983. In my further experiments I will try to apply less.

EDIT: I think my sample might have turned. I could see how it could be gorgeous, too bad.

Everyone knows who she is when she's on you. She's like a classical Greek nymph with a wreath of flowers on her head, welcoming the spring in it's fullest bloom. This fragrance is ridiculously feminine. Normally I would not care for fragrances like this one. It seems to be one of those go big or go home strong fragrances that wear you rather than you wear them. There is nothing subtle about this perfume but my skin chemistry can handle anything fragrances throw at me and once in a while I want to smell like I'm Flora the Roman goddess of spring and I'm watching over the orgies and festivities of the Floralia. This is a hedonistic, orgasmic flower bomb fragrance. These are flowers that have taken steroids. However, in my perversity, I wish there were even more flowers. I don't think there are enough flowers in this perfume. Everyone smells roses but I don't. My nose picks up on scents that are similar to rose when it's transferred into perfumery: hyacinth iris, geranium, violet, heliotrope. I think this is more of a heliotrope and iris scent. These are usually soft purple flowers but they're singing high notes in this fragrance. All the flowers are in a chorus singing for you. Rose is conducting the choir of Iris Heliotrope Lily Geranium Jasmine Ylang Ylang and Violet. The fragrance opens with a freshness that I do like. It's fresh and uplifting. It's a blast of lime blossom and bergamot and the perfumy old fashioned aldehydes. I smelled something that was a tad fruity, a peach or nectarine. I definitely smelled cassis or cassia which is a grape scent. The rest of the time all I get is flowers from here to next Tuesday. For some reason I feel like this fragrance is cheap and too common, the way I feel about Chanel No. 5. I don't mind smelling like that once in a blue moon. Today I am going to Paris for Fashion Week and this fragrance will introduce herself to everyone I run into. Yves Saint Laurent has created masterpieces that are always extreme in perfumery: Opium is intense smoke and Paris is intense flowers. Thank You Yves. Paris on y va!

Paris by Yves Saint Laurent, in my view, is the embodiment of classic woman who knows how to speak properly and perfume, as well as being admired by the way you behave and approach life. A floral perfume delight where Grojsman starred Rose honey in its prime, when she still blown stem, Vica his empire like there's no tomorrow. much love the roses that perfume, how polished as it unfolds every minute it evolves, and best of all, I think, is that these roses cross the cable fragrance to cover. In the opening it is citric with petals of roses and a half uncomfortable due to the floral combination of Jacinto and the dry smell of thorns tying a knot in the judgment, however, the safe Pink tips legally, and we go through a good by this bold departure from Paris. His medium is life, and life in abundance, because behind a feminine floral combination, feminist and fêmea_master_blaster_mega_ultra_top being that I never felt the other day before, has a combination of dewy lily by winter serene, Violet behaved no more precedents, Jasmine without dirt something that is, Ylang Ylang illuminated by a divine golden sunny and roses, still in their stems, exhaling and beating its unmistakable aroma by meters and meters; "Fuck" what madness this dry down! Back in reality he is lumbering, too Iris giving the smell of magnificent dust while giving it class and refinement, sandalwood, leaving him half bastard along with sensual musk, cedar that give a delicious ardorzinho and finally Roses and more roses to give sell, collect and crash all over the place! I was not even in Paris, but the exciting city of Paris refer the impressions that this fragrance gives me is sure I'll have many orgasms when there I am one day, certainly.

The perfume version of this fragrance is vastly different from the eau de toilette. Yes the eau de toilette is fresh and spring like and I would say in warmer weather, the eau de toilette is the way to go. I just picked up the perfume, body lotion and shower gel and let me say, this is Paris with a deep, more voluptuous aura about it. There is a richer scent trail with this one. Very appealing with a flirtatious twist to it. This is what you would wear in the evening, all dressed up and out to dinner with friends or your significant other.

FRENCH FLOWER BOMB

This is the real Flower Bomb because it's exactly what it would feel like if a thousand flowers detonated on your skin. I love this perfume. Yves Saint Laurent launched this fragrance back in 1983 as a tribute to the romantic city of Paris in the spring and it's still selling as one of the most beloved women's perfumes from the 80's. For some people this is like flowers on steroids. I was struck by a heavy potpourri of roses, violet, mimosa, nasturcia, hyacinth, geranium, hawthorn, lily, jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, iris lily of the valley and lime blossom. Wow. I mean seriously, a lot of flowers. It's too much for some people to handle but I'm mostly drawn to floral fragrances. This one is a heavy hitter and even though I prefer softer floral scents, this one is a masterpiece and after smelling a vintage bottle that a friend of mine had in her wardrobe, I knew I had to have it. Before analyzing the composition of notes, I closed my eyes and allowed my nose to do the work of detecting the floral make-up of this perfume. I thought I smelled a peach but I'm assuming that's the combination of bergamot, mimosa and lime blossom. To my nose those are the biggest accords, not the rose. The rose is very clearly there, but it seems to be there to make this fragrance more powdery and feminine. It really does smell like the inside of a handbag where you keep your make-up and lipstick, lip balm, and even talcum powder. I love powder so this was welcomed. Besides the roses, violets are pretty strong. These are lush violets that are in a bouquet of heliotrope which was also very noticeable. This is a delicious ramped up floral fragrance that I'm so in love with. I can only wear this in the day time and during spring and summer. It's strong so one spritz is enough. If you douse yourself in this it would cause even you to become allergic. But it's such a beautiful perfume. I can't live without it.Thank You Yves Saint Laurent.

Christmas 2015 was approaching and my husband asks me what I'd like. After spending hours in deliberation I finally came up with three fragrances to add to my collection, found pictures online and sent the screen shots to his phone for reference. Not being able to find Parisienne himself, he showed the sales assistant his phone and was promptly handed a 30ml bottle of Paris EDT instead.

Sigh...

I'll be straight. I certainly get the Paris appeal; feminine, classic, identifiable. I also get a lot of rose, make-up bag powder and wood. The 30ml EDT bottle is gorgeous and a pleasure to hold in the hand, something that would ooze class if spotted in one's immaculate hand bag or purse.

I don't get great longevity or projection from Paris but I can tell you she takes on a whole different form when sprayed in one's hair!

I nice scent that I'll enjoy while I have it but wouldn't look to repurchase after the last drop has gone.

I'm keeping the gorgeous bottle, though.

Longevity: Less than moderate
Sillage: Weak (much, much stronger sprayed in hair)

I fell in love with Paris when it first came out and I bought a bottle from a beautiful perfume boutique in Paris. It was my first trip to Paris and my first "real perfume".
That was many years ago!
I still love Paris.

I spray once and walk into the perfume. This is the perfect application, otherwise it is too strong.

Paris is a classic beauty.

I got a LOT of powder on this one immediately, and it never really seemed to develop past that. Also an annoying, youngish sweetness that I did not like, and now looking at the notes represented, I think the culprit is once again iris--I don't know what the deal is but I cannot tolerate iris. I also find a heliotrope a little tricky, although there are some heliotropes I love, but I've noticed that note can sometimes go wrong on me. Quite bummed because I thought this was going to be a bouquet that I truly loved based on suggestions from other members. Oh well--I'm still learning a lot from all my recent sampling, so at least now I know not to purchase a full bottle!

The (now vintage) eau de toilette almost knocked me to the ground the first time I sampled it in the 80s. I never could wear it, and still can't. But the actual parfum or the "Fleur de Parfum" versions are an entirely different story. The same basic fragrance but softer, rounder, and not as loud or sharp while still having excellent sillage and longevity. Both can be found regularly on Ebay. The 7.5 ml parfum is often erroneously listed as a mini, and usually has a fake diamond in the center of the cap. Fleur de parfum has a gold-toned cap with a rose pattern on it's top, and should say 77% vol across the front as well as Fleur de Parfum, though the letters are often partially gone these days.
The best thing I can say about the current edt is that it doesn't last too long. It seems they kept all of the unpleasant parts of Paris and skipped over the sandalwood, rose liquor and fresh violet; I find it unbearably chemical smelling.

This is a great alternative to Frederic Malles Lipstick Rose! It smells exactly like LR on me, which my wallet is thankful for. :) Smells like violet bonbons and retro lipstick.

Tested it today, didn't think too much on the notes but felt a strong scent of jasmine. I like it even though heavy floral scent that almost got ridicuous... It only smelled flowers.
On the other hand I smelled it very quickly. I will try it again before I end this review...

Un prodotto che dura negli anni ed un motivo ci sarà...piace perchè nel suo bouquet porta in evidenza in maniera marcata e ben distinguibile la ROSA! ROSA DELICATA, ACIDULA che non è mai fuori luogo ancor più quando è accompagnata dai muschi uniti agli agrumi. Pulizia e buon profumo rendono questa fragranza una delle migliori interpretazioni di profumi con all'interno le ROSE. 7/10

Roses and violets liquor. I feel in Wonderland when I use it. Too sweet for work; people may think I am a bombón. For afternoons walking alone in the city, maybe. In Fall, when all the shops try to overload my lungs with cheap pumpkin candles, I spray my mouchoir and sniff.

A popular perfume years ago that has unfortunately fallen from grace now and can be quite vilified by some. Never the less it can beat some of the modern perfumes for longevity and it's like a walk in the garden of roses.Will admit the roses are very loud but the violets are close behind to add to the romantic smell.

I can only imagine this fragrance on a woman with high heels and heavy make-up (which I am not :) ). It doesn't seem like a day time scent,but may be suitable for special occasions. The most dominant smell in the fragrance is rose. I wouldn't use it and I wouldn't prefer to smell it on someone close to me, like my mom, my best friend or colleague. Not my taste.

This fragrance is very strong (though I own the EDT). It is like ancient times' eau de cologne that our grandmas had on the bathroom shelf. If you want to experience the amazing softness, delicacy of flowers, you may give it a try to spray it on you in the afternoon and smell it the next day. Don't overspray, though.

Before I became aquainted with YSL's Paris, I imagined it to be a literal rendition of roses and violets, which would have been in keeping right up there with my imagination of gardens in Paris.
Although I have yet to make it to Paris, the city, the fragrant gardens that it is known for kept me imagining this perfume to be a soft mesh-like rendition of true to the bloom florals, as in Apres le Ondee or even l'air du Temps, but no.

Paris is like the big bright Expressionist paintings that use big bold strokes of bright color. To my nose, this is a big, heavily candied floral. For me, the sweetness recalls what might be a variety of honey originating from rich, deep burgundy roses and violets.

I love powdery, old-fashioned makeup-like scents that recall the best of old fashioned romance, and I could not detect the soft powder accord I had read about. I kept feeling that somehow I was short-changed as I could not at first interpret this accord I had in my head would smell much different.

I have put Paris in the sidelines of the scents that I tend to go for for some time. From time to time, I go through and sell those fragrances that I decide after some time that I will probably never warm up to.I decided to try Paris again, with the idea I would sell it if I still wasnt intrigued with wearing it and getting to know it.

So these last few days have been a test to see if I have been able to grow more attached to Paris. I have had to remember forget what I have read about in reviews, to block out how it has been described, categorized, and what it could be expected from it.

Having none of those things to think about made for a liberating attempt to enjoy
myself. I wonder how much image, history and others suggestions play into the experience. I enjoyed noticing all the moments of how Paris unfolded before me, and this way it is much like hearing a new symphony by a favorite artist for the first time, without interruptions. Do I love Paris-Of course I do! I didn't have the chance not to!!!

It is pretty, but synthetic smelling. I get violet and rose notes with some other synthetic note which i can't identify.Very floral/creamy/powdery scent. It has that cosmetics smell. The smell reminds me of a doll I use to own as a child- I don't know why- maybe it is some synthetic plastic note?

It is floral pretty and non- offensive. Very safe though. I don't see the hype with this perfume- the bottle is beautiful, the smell is feminine and pleasant but it is nothing original and in league of it's own. It is just a simple pretty floral scent, in a beautiful bottle. Love YSL probably one of the most classy designers going- one of my favourite designers of all time. This is a pretty classy perfume, but not one that has rocked my world. It feels late 80s, early 90s to me.

I remember how big thought Paris was in the '80's. Too big for me! I shunned away from all the biggies actually, Giorgio, Poison, etc. On sampling Paris today I don't get the "knocks your socks off" at all. I'm not sure when it was reformulated, but it's a beautiful complex gentle rose, not a chemical rose but more like a real one, an oil absolute. Compared to the hideous electric Givenchy Very Irresistible, Paris is a godsend for rose lovers. Sophia Grojsman created this one and she is amazing. Paris is a metropolitan sexy rose perfume, one of the better florals.

YSL Paris EDP is one of the most dewiest and wettest rose perfume I have ever smelled. Take a full rose bush, add in some powdery violets and put it through a hot tropical hurricane. The roses and violets are soggy and even pungent from the water. This perfume reminds me of powder compacts that one could use both dry and wet with a sponge. There is a green quality to YSL Paris but not bitter green. It is green with a fresh sweetness to it, which adds even more to the wet quality. YSL Paris is big, lush and ultra feminine. It makes me think of a nasty, gloomy rainy day, but still nevertheless getting dressed up, being posh and pretty despite the bad weather. Break out the polka dot umbrellas, yellow rain jacket, rain boots, put on some lipstick and smile as it's pouring on a Wednesday.

This was the very first perfume I was gifted when I was 14 by my parents. I have gone through many bottles over the years since then. I will always adore it as it has very fond memories for me, takes me right back to my teenage years. It's not up there in my top ten anymore though, as my tastes have changed over the years, and i'm not into pure florals any more, but will always have a bottle purely for nostalgia's sake.

I still love the smell, rose being the most prominent, and definitely don't think it's an 'old lady' perfume as some describe it at all! I think anyone would get away with wearing it, as long as you love florals lol!

I have the edt at the moment, and it doesn't have the sillage, warmth or staying power like the edp, and smells a little weak, so I would always suggest going for the edp.

Wearing this in the smoldering heat tonight and it's actually been refreshing! (EDT formulation)

Catching whiffs of myself, feeling a sheer yet complex cloud made of sweet flowers and a touch of dry spice. The sandalwood in this is way more noticeable than you'd think - it's just surrounded by flowers so it seems less familiar than say any gourmand or fruit it would typically be paired with.

This is a love though I get the feeling these kinds of scents just won't be made anymore and it's a shame because this is just beautiful. It's taken me a while to come around to Paris, but I held onto her knowing I'd eventually see all she has to offer.

From a distance she's mysterious, airy and playful. Close up she's a little darker, spicier - the carnation really stands out on my skin.

All around a beautifully composed fragrance - makes me want to try out the EDP!

Beautiful fragrance, rich, feminine, but a bit too sweet and strong for me.
I've always seen Paris being recommended here as rose perfume. And yes, there is rose (sweet and powdery), but I wish the scent stayed like that all the time. Maybe it's just my skin but the rose phase doesn't last long enough as other flowers start to dominate - which is not surprising, looking at the notes there are so many of them. Something in the base notes almost gave me headache - probably heliotrope.
Sillage and longevity are enormous (EDP) - and it's the new, reformulated version. 8/10

Classy, serious but also kind of playful, I imagine a stylish 30-something year old woman smiling at me from her desk. A lot of the time I'm not very impressed with most rose scents but the sweet woody accords really make this smell one of a kind. For some weird reason I smell almond in there and I'm reminded of marzipan petit fours.

Whoa! That is fresh. Ysl paris is one of those fragrances that reminds you of something else even though you might not be able to pin point it. Fresh roses and violets with a unidentifiable stewed fruit essence. Is it peach? Plum? Apricot? Who knows. There's no fruit listed but it definitely is there. Gives off a slightly bubbly champagne smell and clean ironed hair. Does that sound weird? Maybe. But it's good!. It's kind of a much sweeter Eternity and a not as sweet and woody tresor. Both ironically done by the same nose that did this and an abundance of other classics. Paris simmers down to a soft, powdery, slightly spicy, champagne smelling, floral bouquet. It's great for all ages. Eau de toilette, spray all the sprays you want. Eau de parfum, don't over spray.

Yes, this is reformulated. I thought it would be an issue, being that this is one of my favourite perfumes of all time (I'm a MASSIVE rose fan).

So when I got the 125ml EDT as a gift last Christmas, I was apprehensive about how much I would still like it.

And I have to say that much like my experience with the reformulated Opium, it smells identical to the way it used to on my skin, with the same longevity, and projection, which is big on both counts.

ABSOLUTE WIN.

It's a thick and heavy rose, to be sure, but there's something slightly powdery about it, and it's actually resonably fresh to my nose. Probably my second favourite perfume of all time, and the only perfume my best friend ever wants to smell on me. She adores the way it smells on my skin, which is another win, because she hates the smell of most of my perfumes.

This is big mamma classic perfumery! I am commenting on the 80s vintage here. Paris is earthy (I get the whole orris root straight away and the oakmoss), juicy, tangy rosey floral. It is not densely powdery, still has some lovely green heart even on the drydown. This is not just petals, this is the stems, the roots and even the earth all damp and fertile in a huge wheelbarrow in a sunny corner of the garden. It is listed as a spring scent, but this might just be autumn too. Sillage and longevity are as grand as the opening notes.

I must admit some reformulations can be a blessing for those who have suffered headaches with older juices. I've always loved this fragrance but had to let it go due to the sinus headaches it would trigger off particularly with the edp. Nightmare. Now there is a vast difference compared to only a few years ago. Both the edt and edp are weaker.

The edt lacks the fruitiness and is more airier. It used to have a champagne quality about it. This will be a major disappointment for many.
The edp is almost half the strength but has the intensity of the edt and appears somewhat rosier with a stuffy feel to it.

Both formulations agree with me. I am disappointed though that my edt is weaker than the tester I smelt at Boots recently.

Nevertheless I would be glad to swap for these. The fragrance I couldn't wear in my teens I can wear now and prefer the simplicity. For those missing the depth and richness the current formulations will be depressing. I enjoy this classic but still wearable and prefer my fragrances to be simple than complex

The bottles are so adorable. One of my favourite designs.

i tried this properly for the first time today and it grabbed me immediately.
it smells pretty "guerlain" to me. i immediately thought of l'heure bleue and insolence. it also reminded me a little of samsara. but paris is all about rose. it is the perfect rosy makeup powder scent. yes, some people will say it smells "old" but they have no idea what they are talking about. everyone should at least try this.
i've been to paris and i feel this fragrance most definitely captures the vibe and is appropriately named.
I'm so happy i got to chat with the lady at nordstrom who worked for ysl when paris was released, she said it brought back memories when i asked her to try it and she sprayed it on the card :) a positive experience with an SA, and I LOVE PARIS.

I've been on a violet trek that started when I tried small samples of Serge Lutens Bois de Violette and Balenciaga's vintage Le Dix. I rarely blind buy but in my research of the note I kept coming across YSL's Paris in reviews and comments.

I must have been one of the rare people that never tried this in the eighties so I don't have that formulation to compare to. All I can say is that if the original was better, it must have come straight from the angels because the 1 ounce EDT I purchased is one of the most heavenly scents I've come across. I couldn't believe my good luck when I sprayed it on my arm right after it arrived. It was one of those rare scents that was so much better than I expected it to be - quite a rare occurrence in my experience.

The violet is stunning in it's pairing with the rose and, on me, the violet is more dominant which is what I'd hoped for. A truly beautiful scent that brings me great pleasure to wear. One of the most joyous and upbeat scents I've come across. This is one that will stay in my fragrance wardrobe forever. I just wish I'd discovered it sooner. Thank you YSL and Sophia Grojsman for sharing this beloved vision of your Paris!

Much has been said of the reformulation of Paris, and when I encountered the opening notes of the current formulation, my first thoughts were “Huh, April Violets!”, and then “No, wait - English Rose”. Both, of course, staples of that most English of perfume houses, Yardley. Ironic, then, that this should be named as it is. This reminds me somewhat of those insipid watercolour pictures of the Eiffel Tower one finds in gift shops, reducing a vibrant, fascinating, mercurial city to a one-dimensional cliché. Would love to smell the original.

All the doomsayers doom and glooming about how paris is dead and gone, it isn't.
This review is for the eau de parfum, This perfume is ******* amazing, its one of the strongest perfumes i own it just last's and last's, get millions of compliments on it and the latest bottle of edp i bought was in 2014, so if the edt isn't doing it for you then try the edp, and i never say this about anything, so it better have good longevity and sillage or i just won't say it does like some people do but whatever.
so anyway This is voilets and rose on steroids, super powerful green floral and the outcome is this hairspray, makeup, champagne type of scent, i can actually smell myself all day/night when i wear this and it is quite intensive. i used to work for nightclubs in newcastle and all my friends and people i work with say this scent literally reminds them of partying for 3 days straight every week lol. i was wearing it around the house last week and it literally leaves a cloud everywhere i go, i promise you put this on, leave the house and recieve endless compliments everywhere you go, i even stopped at the petrol station and the women at the petrol station said i smelled amazing, and she could smell me over the strong smell of petrol!

It's actually quite a shock to think that this perfume was released in 1983 because it's really quite contemporary and not like anything that was released in the 80's, my mam is 45 and wear's this, i'm 21 and wear this and the majority of people who compliment me on this are young too, so you shouldn't always judge a perfume, but i'm kind of glad people overlook this eau de parfum because it's like my secret weapon and i don't smell it on that many people.
Most of the perfumes i own are glamorous and alluring, i tend to go for unique contemporary scents that smell amazing and stand out in a crowd like fracas, tom ford tuscan leather, killian beyond love prohibited, creed aventus etc. and 90% of the time i find myself reaching for paris edp over some of my greater scents, i wore this on my birthday night out the past 3 years in a row i just never get bored or tired of this. This perfume to me is champagne and patron fueled night's, fun and glamorous times.
I actually grew up with this perfume because my mam wore it as her signature scent when i was a kid so it's really special to me but i'll never be without it, i'd have a nervous breakdown if this was ever changed or dicontinued.


i have all the body products to go with it aswell and they're amazing, especially the lotion!


EDIT 07/06/2016 People really need to describe in their reviews if they're using the EDP or the EDT because there's a big difference scent wise and in strength, It's misleading for a lot of other people who could be missing out on the EDP.

I can be stingy when it comes to sharing my perfume secrets and it make's me happy to see a lot of people going out and trying the EDP after my review raving about it as it was somewhat forgotten and a little hard to get a hold of, but we're all hear for the love of perfume and this is a great one so it make's me happy to know other people are having great experiences with it.
So years later and paris is still going strong in my collection, I feel like i'm in love with this perfume now more then ever, It's roses, violets, woody and green just an absolute 10 of a perfume and with my 23rd birthday coming up in july, i can't see myself wearing anything else, can't wait to create more memories with paris. It's not just my love for this perfume but other people's reactions to it that make it special for me, as i said in my review a few years ago my mother wore this when i was growing up, an older version of the edt in the 90's but similar to the current edp and i just associate it with happy memories and good times, and my experiences wearing paris have been some of my best memories.

Reformulation is a sacrilege. Ridiculous, unbelievable... "Paris" is now only a fruity floral shampoo scent which immediately evaporates and doesn't even last properly for 2 hours. The scent has totally lost its character. Indeed there (here) is no scent in the name of Paris, or in the name of any proper perfume for the matter. This is just a nondescript liquid.
A Victoria's Secret body spray is better. Save your money.

Paris is such a beautiful, feminine, rose and violet perfume. It really conveys joy to me. It's very sweet and almost smells like a floral scented lipstick but in a good way. Personally, I feel it can be worn year round, but it's especially nice in winter when you need a lift. Simply beautiful.

This really is a lovely scent - powdery rose and violet, but by no means a soliflore. It is complex enough to keep you interested so I can see why it remains a favourite with its green notes and gentle spice.

I have tried this quite a lot of times; I always think it is a lovely floral, and I always think it is too floral and too nice for me. It is a perfect wedding fragrance, a perfectly feminine scent and a wonderful signature. But, like the ad, it is soft focused and I prefer something with a bit of steel tucked away.

An absolute classic without being dated.

Floral fragrances and especially huge florals are at the opposite of my fragrance range. I don't even wear any poperly "floral" perfume.....except for Paris. I cannot explain it at all but this enormous sparkling (dry) 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 down or it's grey and raining outside, I bring in Paris. And the sky starts to rain pink Swarovsky crystals. Indecent, lound and sparkling. A great survival of what was great in 80's perfumes. Not everybody might like it when you wear it (their loss!....), so don't put on the entire bottle, but don't apologise for wearing it either!

Just found a sample mini bottle that I was given at a perfumer's years ago, when Paris made its debut and sample bottles were still freely offered to customers in perfumeries before the spreading of vials.
But I am digressing.

Paris is a scent liking to digress: she (I like to think it's a she) starts with flowers, many flowers, a huge bunch actually. She handles the flowers: roses, lilacs, mimosa, violets, hyacinths, iris, geraniums ...
Oh, they are many!!!
The flowers give their embrace, one by one, and one by one they leave a kiss and then made a step back.
Then it becomes powdery, woody, less floral, more sophisticated, pure class.

I think that naming this scent PARIS is a work of genius and Yves was a genius.
It is Paris in a bottle: sparkling, merry, elegant, classy.
One of the few scents from the '80es that still have a reason to exist, live and give joy.
WONDERFUL.

I first dismissed this fragrance as 'astringent' when I started seriously getting into perfumes. I'm really happy that I kept my sample in order to revisit in the future.

I find Paris to be a very sophisticated, elegant and feminine fragrance. It does smell vintage and makeupy, yet because it's so well-blended it manages to still seem quite wearable today.

On my skin, this is slightly sharp at first from the bergamot top note, followed by a blast of powder, iris and violet. It then starts to become slightly more woodsy, green and develops into a 'complex soapy smell', the soapiness which I think is the rose. The dry-down is very powdery and soapy. Paris isn't not overly sweet, either. Sillage about soft to moderate; lasts for about 6-7 hours on me.

I had a Vogue Fall Preview around 1984 (silver Brooke Shields was on the cover, I believe) with this AMAZING fold out ad for YSL Paris. It was a folding flower bed where you would pull the flowers away and you'd see in the center of the page, the bottle. I think it was a picture of a model wearing a hat holding a bottle looking very French and graceful.

My mom hated this, as one of the times she was sickest in her life was in a hotel in Paris in spring, sick with hay fever from all the flowers. She couldn't leave the hotel room and travel and sight see. She took the magazine when I was away from school and ripped out the ad and threw it away. It made her sick.

I was sick, too. Because I loved the ad and the scent. It was a dry, kind of powdery rose, about 100% of what you would smell. But I could never wear it around her, alas, because she would say she could feel her throat close up.

Now I'm mature, I sniff this and can't imagine wearing it. It seems so plastic and artificial. Even one-sided. That's just the way the 1980's were to me. A slight rejection of the natural and embracing the day-glo, uniformity, the monolithic altar of "roses." It screams "I am wearing fragrance!" much like the Christian Dior Poision and Giorgio of the 1980's, not subtle, not nuanced, just standing out in all its glory, hogging the limelight.

This one seems to have been around forever, so long that I can't imagine how anyone could have missed trying it. I've had bottles of this on and off since the nineties. I've also had some of the flankers, which have all been quite close to the original.

I've always thought of this as just a sunny, fresh French rose perfume, so I was most surprised when I found out it features violets. I guess they are more shy than the rose notes, at least on me, so I need to try hard to detect them in the mix.

This is such a happy perfume, it's a total mood lifter on me. It takes me back to a time in my twenties when I did a backpack-around-Europe trip and came upon a magazine shoot taking place in one of the public gardens in Paris. Wow, those models looked SO sophisticated, so Parisienne. Just like Paris!

This is my second bottle of Paris (although this one is dagger shaped!?)and I still love this classic rose scent. It's strong enough to last the day without being overpowering of offensive. To me this is a strong fresh dewy rose with a softer powdy dry-down. It's appropriate for women of all ages and very feminine. Perfect for the office!

Many opinions have been said about this fragrance, but I have not seen any comments about how tiny and cute is the bottle. I have the 50 ml version, but seems to be the size of the usual 30 ml. Somehow strengthens the theory ”strong essences are kept in small bottles”. I was already in love with the fragrance, but now I'm also in love with the packaging.

I remember when Paris came out, I loved it , it was / is not balsamic, nor aldehydic and not " 80's BIG " , believe me in those days it was nice for a change ! It is fresh , floral and feminine . An easy going scent with a luxurious and stylish projection . Very versatile fragrance !

I have the current edt and a mini of the vintage parfum, I've been wearing the latter today. It is an extremely rich and dense, sweet floral, centered around rose and violet. But I clearly feel the woody base, at least in this concentration. From what I remember, the edt is much more powdery. I don't wear this scent very often, but I should, because it's really lovely.
My first thought after application, was that it reminds me a little of Jean Patou 1000, which I recently got. Funny, because I've always thought of Paris as a very spring-like scent and 1000 as belonging to autumn. 1000 is drier, a lot woodier and has more moss (and civet, so there are big differences...), but I still feel that they are somewhat related.
The ressemblance is more evident to Bvlgari pour femme, with the rose-violet-iris theme (same nose, Sophia Grojsman). But Bvlgari feels much lighter and also muskier. Paris is a bigger bouquet of flowers, seemingly made up of every specimen they could find at the moment. And it works.

I purchased this on offer yesterday at Boots: 30ml for £21,99 - though i'm not fond of the dagger shaped bottle.

It gives me less headache as the reformulations progress. I have the same bottle from 2009 which appears to be fruitier than what i bought yesterday. By the way the code indicates its July 2014 manufacture.

The current scent is not as fruity as what i remember from the original version. The sandalwood is more obvious and apparent on my skin.

The original would last for hours with massive sillage and current one still lasts long with less sillage. Still not bad at all as reformulation for this year as many fragrances are appalling from that point of view.

I suppose thats why i bought it as i love the scent of Paris.Its the EDT.
The EDP gives me unbearable migraine as do other fragrances such as VWs Boudoir, Eternity etc...

Paris to me is a huge bouquet of roses and violets on an amber bed. It's the quintessential feminine perfume, redolent of make up and lipstick notes. I imagine a beautiful woman dressed to the nines wearing it. So perfect.

Paris to me is like a happiness potion! I apply it and it lifts my spirits in an instant. It's a passionate floral, creamy, deep and chic. It has a stylish and seductive sweetness that will envelop you throughout the day without fail (no need to reapply during the day whatsoever). I detect many flowers but the violets and rose stand out nice and proud along with a delightful trace of amber. Do not over-spray because it is very potent and instead of enjoying this classy beauty you might end up suffocating yourself. I wrote this strictly for the EDP which is glorious, the EDT did not impress me in the slightest.

Paris opens as a pleasantly peculiar, almost odd chypre, quite herbal and stuffed with flowers but at the same time with a pungent, slightly skanky base, then sandalwood, resins, heliotrope, patchouli and "something" weird I can not isolate, a sort of camphoraceous feel quite humid and heavy which creates a dissonance in the blend that reminds me of Héritage by Guerlain. 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. Finally, the drydown is more dry than one may expect, with flowers blossoming out again and aldehydes providing their signature's metallic-salty feel – however, it's globally and elegant, discreet and long lasting drydown. 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. Quite a complex but masterfully played evolution, a really modern scent, ironic and understated, but still with something I do not like entirely (perhaps it's "too much" complex to the point of smelling a bit confused at some points). However, surely worth a try.

This review is for the EDT version.

Just bought Paris yesterday and I'm officially in love.

You know that feeling when you smell a fragrance and immediately know that this is THE ONE. I normally test perfume 3 times before purchasing a bottle since I want to make sure they suit me, and perfume behaves differently on different circumstances. Weather,seasons,moods,occasions, etc they all contribute greatly to how a scent develops on your skin. But Paris is an exception. I know this beauty is for me the moment I spray Paris on my wrist.

It smells very potent at first, with a bit of green woody notes crawling in the background. The heart opens with a lovely old-fashioned combination of rose and violet. Paris becomes a much more warmer and sensual scent in the dry down. Very powdery and womanly, with a vintage vibe that I adore so much.

Paris is not for an untrained nose, or someone only dosing in mainstream fruity floral fragrances. This is for mature classic women with taste and style.

I used to almost hate it because an ex boss wore it. Well now I've inherited a bottle from my gran presumably vintage. It's almost full which is either because she kept it for special occasions or because it's simply so strong! Tested a tiny amount this morning and finally I can appreciate this with an open mind. A fresh dewy rose meets a powdery violet and there is no waxiness which could put me off. This is getting exciting, Paris is joining my powderbomb arsenal :-) I believe its power and longevity could be in the same league as Insolence.

I deleted my review because somehow at the time I thought it was "adstringent". What was I thinking?

This is an absolutely gorgeous perfume. Very elegant and refined, but there's something cozy about it, just a touch. It's simultaneously powdery and creamy, like makeup powder, fresh but old-fashioned, if that makes sense. Truly a classic.

I wish I could appreciate Paris, and I have liked it on others, but on me, all I can ever smell is tons of violets, one of my most disliked perfume notes. Probably the sandalwood in the base also doesn't help its likeability from my perspective. A few years ago I was shocked to hear this described as primarily a rose perfume, because all I ever smell is violets on a sweet powdery base.

I love Wendyangeln said in her review. I am 40 something now, I wore this in my early 20's and this fragrance still has its charms. There is something sexy yet soft and innocent about this fragrance that lifts your spirits when all the world seems sometimes out of sorts, there is this lovely scent that can remind you there is still beauty, kindness and love. Yup, all that from a perfume! :)

Why did it take so many years for me to discover this one? I received a mini of the edt with another purchase and didn't really think much of it smelling it straight from the bottle. It seemed nice but nothing too special so I put off testing it. When I finally did, I was pleasantly surprised: sharp, synthetic, green opening followed by soft powdery roses and violets in the dry down, not too harsh, not too strong, just perfect.

The first time I wore it, it reminded me so much of Eternity. Now that I see the nose behind Paris I understand why. I have had Eternity in my collection since it fist came out and honestly, I have no idea how I could have worn it every day the way I used to. Now days about 50% of the time it's a scrubber for me. I don't dare wear it on a hot humid day or in a car or in any other confined space. Way too cloying. But I still love it. Paris is wonderful because it gives me just enough of the Eternity vibe but without the cloying elements. Again, I have the Paris edt, I don't know if I would feel the same way about a stronger concentration. This is definitely full bottle worthy and I'm so glad I finally discovered this beauty. Better late than never I guess.

Violet and hyacinth? No thank you. Just throw in all of catholic Grandma's other florals too while you're at it. (Not quite as bad as Chloe Love or Estee Lauder Beautiful for the churchy florals factor, however.) Not only do Grandma's florals strip the rose of its romanticism but the composition has become slightly pungent with the over-floral-dose and countless other ingredients. Would this be considered a chypre? I don't even know. There's too much going on here--sandalwood, oakmoss, so many flowers, cedar...

I can appreciate the artistry and balance of YSL Paris on a purely intellectual level. Kudos on them for sticking in so many different flowers and not making it smell like crap. However, my senses are confused and overpowered. IMO florals should put you at ease. This is a Frankenstein floral.

My friend owns a perfume store. They ran out of Paris so she gave me the tester bottle because they weren't going to restock it. (125ml EDT, only about 10 ml used - it's not a popular fragrance here in Nairobi)

I didn't even try it for a long one because I just... It even LOOKS heavy. One day, I was feeling less-than-inspired by my usual favourites, so I picked up Paris and - mistake - spritzed twice on my neck and on each wrist (which is how I wear perfume - my taste is normally lighter, more elegant scents). Paris tried to kill me in the five minutes that followed - SO STRONG! It is a very powerful, strong scent, as was the style in the 80s.

But don't write her off! Had I been home, I would have jumped right back in the shower, but I had put it on and hopped in the car so there was no escaping :)
By the time I got to where I was going (45mins later)... Oh my sweet Jesus. Paris had become a beautiful, powdery rose+violet veil! I was walking and I kept turning around to see if I was being followed because I kept catching whiffs of a supremely elegant, mature, PERFUME. I capitalize PERFUME because I don't think you can call this a scent - it wouldn't be mistaken for your natural scent - it is very much a perfumey perfume. But a beautiful perfume! A very beautiful perfume.

Paris is not a wallflower. She isn't skulking in the shadows, oh no. You know how there are fragrances that are supposed to attract men? Like, oh men find vanilla attractive, or men think jasmine is sexy or whatever? Paris is a woman who considers herself beautiful and feels no need to prove it. I think it would 'become' attractive on such a woman simply because she is wearing it.

Also, in this day and age, Paris STANDS OUT because very few young women haven't bought into the current Daisy/Flowerbomb trend, making classics like Paris very memorable and distinguishable.

Oh, and one more thing, Paris lasted through a shower, a night's sleep and the gym. The EAU DE TOILETTE. Colour me impressed.

Where is the Paris I used to know 20 yrs ago? This one is gone after half an hour, this smells even more plasticky than the original unreal cosmetic violet rose' in the old Paris smelt. Maybe it's no more it's time and it's place , who knows. Maybe I was only a young girl thrilled by such a womanly scent such as paris was. Now I'm used to all this modern scents, where a rose pretends to smell like a real alive rose with all the stem, the roots, the earth and the garden, that I'm no more able to love paris as it deserves,suddenly paris smells only like Barbie perfume to me... But it's not its fault..I'm sure it's mine!! Sad..

Just picked up a bottle of the EDP 30% off :)
It's much sweeter now than the original. More powdery and candied violets in the modern version. The original had more depth and heavy notes. It kind I smells like Les Metiorites. A fun , bright little violet scent. Not as sexy as the original, but it's nice and light for summer.

ETA: Took two hours to develop, but the spicy under notes are finally present. So glad I finally treated myself to another bottle of this classic.

Paris reminds me of Red Door (I love Red Door) with no honey and a lot more violet. It's strong stuff! Very floral, mostly violet to my nose. Fruity, green cassis leaf is strong as well.

It smells very, very 80's. Somehow reminds me of my box of Barbie dolls from when I was a child.

Seems like a sophisticated scent for a bright and optimistic woman.

I had the privilege of visiting Paris for a conference in 2009. As I was so excited to visit the city I purchased a bottle of this fragrance. On my skin the rose and violet surface. What an elegant fragrance. It is the elegance of brevity and simplicity, the purity of natural grace and can be summed up in one word: elegant. A wonderful interpretation of the city of love and light. When I mentioned the brevity aspect, I was not referring to staying power. Spritz lightly, or the lovely rose may be ruined. In this case: as the perfume would suggest: less is more.

The eau toilette is a bed scent. No staying power whatsoever. I wear it to bed or when I want just a little bit of fragrance. Because that is all I get, a little bit of fragrance. Wish I could get the Paris of 1983. But that was many years ago,and I was only a young woman busy raising two children and too busy to think about perfume and too young to appreciate the beauty of the perfume. I missed my chance and am so sad that I did.

I wish I had worn the EDP for my wedding day back in '91 instead of the EDT. I discovered that the EDP natural spray is by far richer and smoother (less alcohol) from beginning to end. Also, I have ordered fragrances from their origins in France and Italy and find that they, too, are by far better quality and strength, including the EDT's - YSL Paris being one of them. Your fragrance is part of who you are and well worth spending more for it. My mom always used to say, "If you find something that is going to be part of you, then get the best. If not, then shop at WalMart." :) I like to add that not being rich doesn't mean buying cheap, but buying smartly.

I am confused, I wore this in early nineties and I think current version is different , or course my memory may be playing tricks on me or I possibly liked different notes then! In any case, it's strong and powdery rose, I think there are better roses out there now.its heavier than most, and I think it's trying too hard.the violet is very prominent, and nice it is. I will wear it, but won't repurchase! And it's place is spring, I think summer it will come across a bit OTT.
And the 30 ml bottle is a pain, won't stand up!!

New version doesn't smell even close to the original from 90s. It used to be edgy and sharper, long lasting, but became a diluted cloud of the original. Why they do it to old masterpieces? Probably the cost of synthetic ingredients is much lower and new stupid regulations or may be they are looking for a new young audience.

This is so beautiful and romantic. Soft yet strong. Very floral. I love it.
I must confess something. I wore this one day thinking it was my YSL BabyDoll perfume in a state of tiredness. I didn't realize until the end if the day that it was Paris.
So the reviewer who said that this is like the mom version of BabyDoll, you're right. At least I'll keep telling myself that to excuse the fact that I had a case of mistaken identity with my perfume all day long.
Regardless, it's a gorgeous fragrance.

I have both EdP and EdT and curiously they're different.

I can only smell an explosion of Jasmine in both. I'd rather keep only the EdT though, it's lighter.

It's a bold scent and I cannot wear it daily. There must be for sure a reason and mostly of them won't fit in a working place :-) when you wear it you want to call attention, to evolve your own space with this gorgeous your fragrance.

It's a simple mixture and yes a bit oldfashionaded for our contemporary chaos but hey who doesn't need something easy sometimes?

The longevity is wide, it's accompanying you for at least 6 hours. The spillage is huge hence spray in a open place like a veranda or in your room with lots of space.

You won't find it funny to spray this luxurious scent in a tiny toilet room!!! You'll miss the magic honey!

Paris EDT needs only a light spray (I am someone that usually sprays a lot).

Well, the key in my opinion to this classic is to spray lightly. If oversprayed this little rose turns into a sillage monster that will not only take down the people around you but also yourself. Don't want to risk that, right? :)

My mom gifted me a big bottle many years ago and I still have 1/3 of it left because you really only need 1-2 spritzes and are good to go all day long. I received many compliments on this and recommend it for spring as well as fall and winter. Maybe, just maybe, for a cool summer evening as well. But hey, that's just my opinion!

Paris is such an amazing and classic scent - roses, hundreds and thousands of them captured in a bottle! Soft, powdery, rosy and fluffy. But not stale and clean. To me its like I'm holding my head into a bunch of roses while someone else poures baby powder over me. That may sound strange but I really love it!

Will always keep a bottle in my collection :)

This is another scent I really wanted to love, and from its description and the listed notes and reviews I thought it would suit me well. I was gifted a bottle and was delighted to give it a try.
This was not what I expected it to be, unfortunately.
I don't know if it is my skin chemistry, personal preference or what but I don't get roses and I don't get violets, what I got smelled like a fairly cheap "teen" fragrance. Initial few minutes was simply sweet and vague floral. After about 10 mins all I could smell was mid-range cherry blossom shampoo. Very disappointed. I gave my bottle away. Not for me, this one.

This is the most quite possibly the most powerful Sophia Grosjman creation of them all! The EDP is a gorgeous boudoir concoction of rose/violet vintage face powder...not to forget the iris. Just a beautiful mix of my favorite florals.

Paris is the scent of a 1930's parisienne actress...Lili Damita comes to mind...sitting at her French white dressing table trimmed in gold, a pink rose in her hair, wearing her best chiffon pink peignoir(yes this perfume makes me think pink!) Paris is everything that being a woman is about. Purely feminine, gorgeous and vintage Hollywood. I wouldn't expect anything less from Sophia Grosjman...delicious!

This will probably be my Valentines Day scent this year...after all, roses are the ultimate flower of love, are they not? ;)

One of the better 80 s perfumes it is the opposite of the super strong power scents that dominated that decade,a much more sweeter and floral scent which has great staying power,while I do not own this scent (at least not at the moment) I think that I can see why that this has hanged around for so long.

When Coco Chanel was in the process of creating Chanel No 5, she suggested to her perfumer in Grasse “I don’t want to smell like a flower; I want to smell like a woman.”

However, if you do want to smell like a flower, then this fragrance is for you!! You will be a beautiful rose!!

This fragrance smells, mainly, as a bouquet of roses. There is also a hint of geranium (but very subtle so that it only down tones the intensity of the rose.) The iris gives a discrete powdery feel to the fragrance while musk, amber and sandalwood give a slightly oriental feel but, not as much as to classify the fragrance as heavy or oriental.

Basically, all the elements revolve around the main scent which is the rose, either to down tone or to balance the intensity of a rosy smell and it is, indeed, a well-balanced fragrance.

If you do not like to smell like roses then, this fragrance is not what you are looking for; additionally, if you prefer crisp, light, fresh, soapy scents then I would not recommend it for you either. However, if you like relatively warm, flowery scents with a hint of an oriental twist then go for it, it will not disappoint you.

I do not feel it as a signature scent (like the very distinctive, classic fragrances) but it has a Parisian charm, that je nai se quoi.

Enjoy the perfume quest!

Paris !

The fragrance's name epitomizes the City after which it is named !

I have the EDP and that is what I prefer to EDT .

The fragrance is lovely . It has a feel of flowing satins , expensive flower boutiques , a room filled with Scarlet Carson's and the best quality roses , delicate soft creamy skins , supple kisses , cuddly sensual hugs and a classy stylish woman !
Does that summarize it for me .....
hmmm...
Nope !
lol...:)

There is still so much to this fragrance .
I like it myself and make it my signature now and then when I shift over to others but again come back to it .
But I also appreciate it much more when I smell it on others !

The first whiff of the fragrance after a spritz can be a little loud and strong for some people , when there is a gush of violets and slight citruses . But , let the fragrance settle down and begin its magic .
30 mins into and then comes this fresh waves of roses and more roses . Very nice and fresh and enticing .
Stays quite a long and then comes the musky sandalwood slight sweet dry down , that also stays !

Classy elegant women , romantic get outs , or just feel airy and fresh and light or want roses .

Longevity is excellent , stays quite long and sillage is huge ! two to three sprays and that is all you need for the entire day !

I've been testing a recently acquired sample of Paris EDP. My only earlier close encounter with this fragrance was when I sprayed a tester bottle back in the 90's. Don't know whether it was EDT or EDP. It felt really tart and sharp, which is invariably a headache sort of rose to me. Two decades on, the EDP actually goes on relatively gentle, perhaps because I didn't spray, but dabbed. First impression: roses, roses, ROSES, and violets. The green violet gives a rainy fresh aspect to the unfolding of the rose, which is a deep pink, pretty and bold.

Later the violet gets more powdery and the rose gets sweeter, heady and distinctly fruity, like raspberry/rose liqueur. The violet and rose strike such a pretty balance, and in the drydown they're warmed by a lovely nutmeg/vanilla-spice note from the lily. The base notes I get are mostly that spicyness over iris/musk/heliotrope powder, but the scent stays predominantly rosy throughout.

I'm attracted to the romance and femininity of Sophia Grojsman's scents, even if not all of them work on my skin. Paris feels flirty, elegant and pure class, and given the fabulously cost-effective strength of this perfume, I'll be able keep dabbing and enjoy my sample for a good while. The EDP has warmth enough that it may work as a fall/winter scent, and it's definitely got the smiley brightness to bring some cheer to the darker months.

Paris is a very beautiful fragrance. The rose note is not the typical "old woman" scent, but an elegant, sophisticated rose. It is a fragrance for the woman with a flair for fashion. Someone who attends affairs that call for wearing formal attire. This fragrance is oh, so feminine. Love it!

It's almost 2am; so this won't be the best review. But I, too, discovered this scent as a young lady. I think I was 12, back in '87/88. It's a cliche, but "Paris" smells like champagne and roses. It smells EXPENSIVE and polished. It is incredibly superior than so many new scents--even designer perfumes, which remind me of the sickenly-sweet cheap drugstore colognes I would test as a kid before my mother could stop me.

Oh Ciel! Belle! Such a beautiful fragrance- a classic I discovered at 13 in the late 90's and have never stopped wearing it.

It has been described so beautifully ( Fragantica.com has the most lyrical perfume lovers and critics ever- some descriptions are like Chinese poetry and yet others read like epic eulogies) so I'll simply share why I love it!

This perfume is roses wet with rainrrrrt- the scent is strong and floral but also has a deep and musky heart that my body ph turns into smokey honey and violets surrounded by green and luscious herbs. As a child it was a bit too grown up- but my innocence and the scents's rose made it somehow little girl appropriate. Now as a woman- my body ph so different from the 13 year old I was- now turn this scent into a flute of champagne filled with flowers.

This fragrance layers well with other floral and green noted scents- I adore the heart of white musk that lingers. Silage is endless. I feel this scent living on my skin and in my clothes until I bath or launder my dresses.
I don't get the powdery hit as much as I do the crisp hint of soap.
I think I can pick up cardamom too. Not for those whom loath Rose, or florals.

EPT is great but the perfume is glorious and a little is all you need. A little pricey but a worthy investment.

Smells, like Rose and Powder, not old in a bad way like you feel some dust will fall on you, no! I feel like hmmm how to say... Classy-Vintage!

I guess classy-vintage is a good word combination, I've tested it today and it took me back to the 80's, the type of smell I'd love to find when I sneaked up on my grandmother's boudoir (Dressing room and table). Probably I would buy it but not to use it... I'd buy it for collection.

Paris...I have always loved the gorgeous bottle and the sweet powdery rose and violet scent which is a true classic by now.
Many companies have made similar scents
(for example La Rose de Rosine,Lipstick Rose, Bvlgari pour Femme etc), but none is as balanced and perfect as Paris.
I have Edt but it's a strong 80's perfume so I always go very lightly with it.More than 3 sprays and I'm risking a headache.

Paris EDT opens slightly sharp. It's ozonic, aldehydic and soapy. It then gradually morphs into a smooth powdery flower bouquet. Rose, hiacynth, violet, mimosa, lily of the valley, jasmine and other flowers interlock with one another. I can hardly pick either one out of the bouquet. It has a floral-type of sweetness, and it smells perfume-y. It doesn't smell unpleasantly synthetic, but it certainly doesn't aim to smell like real flowers. It's an artifice, cleverly structrued and well refined. Glamourous as it is, Paris EDT is surprisingly airy to my nose. I didn't find myself wearing a heavy velvet coat. Instead, it wears like a gauzy aura gently hovering around me. I doubt if the EDP has the same texture, though.

However, I do find that Paris is from an era other than our current one. Paris is like some timeless icons such as Audrey Hepburn : people admire their elegance and beauty but one does not necessarily wear exactly the same way as they do in their times. I admire and respect them as an inspiration. I'd occasionally treat myself with a few spritzes of Paris EDT to be embraced by its grace.

By the way, Paris EDT has a moderate sillage on me even with a few spritzes, but it lasts a good 12 hours and survives a shower.

This is one of the best feminine perfumes ever made, but be careful : the ORIGINAL version (vintage) is MUCH BETTER than the new one.
The new perfume appears to be an extreme dilution of the old one. (the old had a black/pink box, the new is pink/gold)

This is so lovely. A gorgeous fresh tea rose layered with a beautiful violet, sweet but never sugary. Light and airy in the EDT, and the sandalwood base for some reason never fails to make my knees weak. A misted application will bring this one to a more contemporary feel, rather than an 80's perfume blitzkrieg.

This is what I would call a "fat" rosescent.
And it is totally Paris. Having lived there for many years and still spending half of my year there I feel the true spirit of Paris in both the fragrance and the bottledesign - it is spot on.
I can se the parisian woman elegantly dresses in a Chanel-suit strolling down one of the tree-lined boulevards with her small dog in a jewelry strewn leash.
On her way to a dinner or maybe just windowshopping and wearing Paris off course.
La vie est belle - Paris est belle !!

I've always walked right pass this fragrance at the store because I was quite certain roses and violets together were NOT for me and I was also a little traumatized still, from the day where I had sprayed this on a piece of paper to see what all the buzz was about. On the blotter, it was sharp, ozonic, synthetic and DRY, almost screechy. Not attractive at all. (I have to admit I was also a little put off by the idea of YSL doing violets and roses, because of Parisienne... *shivers*)

I finally took the courage to spray this on my wrist today, a good 2 heavy, wet sprays on the same spot. I had vowed to give it a really good try if I was going to test it. Well, what can I say? I'm converted! In the first ten minutes I was thinking to myself "uh oh, pretty rosy and ozonic", but I let it do its thing and it became so addictive, stronger, warmer, all the notes blending together in harmony and the dry down... oh! the dry down, all cozy, warm, feminine, powdery, floral. Pretty amazing.

I'm not going to analyze and over analyze the notes here, because this perfume is a popular classic and it's been around for a while and many excellent reviews have been written about it. So I'm just gonna say this: I feel like fetching one of my vintage fuzzy 80s sweater (I have many!), back comb my bangs, put on bright pink lipstick and settle down with a cup of tea to re-watch "Pretty in Pink". Because that's exactly how awesome this perfume is. It's pretty in pink circa 1983.

Oh, and the TV commercial from 1986... what the heck!!?? priceless. haha

Its always energy giving, makes You happy, brings You to light from darknes if feeling low, romantic, sunny. I have adored Paris looong time and finally got the bottle. Its one of my Rose favourite for sure.

It's certainly bright and feminine, loud at times and beautifully concocted. It sits in a wonderful bottle too, a "feminine grenade" - which can be taken for the scent too.

My friend wears this and she really suits it. She also wears Michael Kors, both are strong, fresh florals and totally match her complex and extroverted personality.

She does at time to time spray it on her friends when they don't have a perfume and that's where my like for Paris ends.

On some people this perfume smells putrid. Like a cheap toilet spray.

I quite like this on the right person, but in the wrong hands it can be a killer!

Paris is like a surprise gift bouquet of flowers tied with silk ribbons. It is soft and lightly sweet with roses, softened by powdery violets and the promise of sandalwood. A bouquet you'd love to receive! Joyful and romantic- a true harbinger of Spring.

Lovely, gay, bright, scintillating and floral without being sickly sweet. I really love this perfume. Not too heavy for day, but not too light for evening.
There is a rose note. jasmine, and a hint of spice to give it depth, a really beautiful combination.

I like this one, the notes sit well on my skin and smell absolutely gorgeous! However, like most fragrances made in the 80's it is a silage bomb! I put the tiniest dab on my wrist and that was plenty. Any more would knock a person clean off their feet. I love the rose and violet blend, it's a cheerful sort of fragrance, but it really needs to be worn lightly as it is powerful.

EDP: Very, very powdery, with lots of violets. I do catch a whif of lipstick or possibly hairspray as well, and just a little bit of spice. The drydown is a bit more complex than the opening (POWDER!!), but both open and close are lovely. I'm not completely sold, but the fragrance is pleasant and I wouldn't mind wearing it in the daytime.

This review if for the EDP.
For me, this is powder overload. I’m failing to pick up any distinctive notes, all I get is powdery powder, the stuff you dab on your nose a sitting in front of your portrait-length mirror at your dressing table. I can picture a very well-dressed woman wearing this and I understand its name as for me, powdery scents tend to stir up connotations of romance. So I get it. But it just seems one-dimensional on my skin! : (

I have been using YSL Paris Eau De Toilette since 1986 and the The Eau De Toilette is my favorite potency - The Parfum; (more powdery) is not my personal taste - The Eau De Toilette; is more lively, crystal clear and tenderly pretty and lasting - Full of roses and violets, well blended with ripe berries, all wrapped in vinyl - I will always remember the first time I smelled YSL Paris Eau De Toilette and it will always be at the top of my list.

i tested this on today. it definitely is a burst of flowers upon the first spray. all i can say is that it's a powdery rose. i don't know what iris or violets smell like, but it could be one of those two that make this perfume powdery? it definitely shouts "classy" or "elegant" when you put this on. i only applied two sprays as it does seem like this could be extremely nauseating when when applied too much.
to sum it up, this would work on women from their mid-20s, it smells very sophisticated,clean but soft,and very innocent. =)

This wasn't what I expected it to be. From its reputation, I had expected a bombastic 80s floral, not a gentle, powdery rose. The top notes can be a little shrill, but once it settles in, it's lovely. It isn't anything groundbreaking (or perhaps it just seems that way to me because it's been around all my life), but it's so much *more* than its reimagined daughter, Parisienne. (Not that Parisienne isn't lovely, of course, but the plastic note that I find so novel in it can be off-putting to others.)

Paris is like a classy, charming women. I can't imagine this on a young girl. It's very lush and rich, what I didn't except from the bottle. Paris speaks in pastel tones! It's extraordinary feminine, and entirely romantic but it's definitely not girly. This smells very close to nature, like the people who made this little piece of art went to a field of blooming flowers and picked all the fresh ingredients by themselves! So, Paris is about romance. If your the romantic type of women you maybe would like this.

Back to the scent. I applied only 2 sprays but that's enough, a little goes on a long way. I get straight up flowers, lovely roses and violets with a powdery touch. I immediately think of something I smelled before but I can't put my finger on it. It dries down to a beautiful bouquet of all kind of flowers. This represents Paris, the most promising and lively city.

I posted a review on this on 1/24/13 but got logged off, so the original one isn't with my ID, so I had to copy and paste. Just an FYI, so no one thinks I'm copying posts!

This is another one of those scents that I've walked past a thousand times and never sniffed, until today. I was expecting a burst of fresh roses with a warm, rich dry down but I was so disappointed. I had actually put this one my want list, but now I've taken it off. I found it overpowering and sharp; it wasn't smooth at all, which I think is what I was expecting. This just isn't for me as is the case with most YSL frags, but I was hoping this one would change my mind. If you're a fan of the 80's heavy floral hitters, then then one may be up your alley.

Because Rose scents are one of my very favorites,

and all the good reviews I bought a mini to try it.

I used to wear this in my teens (early nineties) ....I used to sneak it out of my mums room and practically drown myself in it! I don't know how, as it's such a full on scent!
I really like the smell of this...I have just bought it again, after not wearing it for years, and thought I would feel differently about it.
It's not as sweet as I remember, and it feels more grown-up, deeper, and more complex. I used to think it smelled like a bunch of flowers, but it has spicier notes than that.
It's quite a 'big' smell, but it calms down into something really wearable, really feminine, and something that will make people turn their heads to see who smells good!

I am an English grower and lover of roses. I absolutely adore the fragrance of roses, so I am naturally a lover of Paris with her deep rose heart, but there is so much more to her.

I have many rose fragrances and I love them all, but Paris has some special qualities: The beautiful powdery violets blended with the rose, along with other subtle florals and a musky amber base give a feeling of early 20th Century aristocracy.

I can apply a good spritz of Paris and enter somewhere as mundane as my local supermarket and feel like a Princess, and the strange thing is, people really notice it.

The fragrance seems to linger and as people catch a whiff of the sillage, the eyes follow along with many smiles and the kind of respect, almost 'hats off' that one might expect if one was really a Princess.

A truly beatiful, classy and timeless fragrance.

This really deserves a second review.
This Paris is a YSL masterpiece, surprisingly complex work of Art.
It's not linear, it evolves the whole way through.

Bright Aldehydic Rose, natural high quality rose, and something fruity like Peach, reminding me of Lancome Tresor, but better?
The floral bouquet is smooth and transitions seamlessly from Neroli to Lilies, hand in hand. The lily note resembles the main spicy accord of CK Eternity.
The Cassia cinnamon like spicyness is there too, in the mid notes. smoothly transitioning from the Lily. Sandal Amber at the very end, blending to soft skin.
The very end.. pure sweet Honey musk

Everytime I smell Paris I fall down a little rabbit hole to 1986. I loved it then and it worked perfect with the quirky tomboy girlfriend aesthetic, listening to the Cure and New Order while living in a barely furnished flat-- wishing I had a Vespa..... (Never did get that one)
They say smell is the sense that brings the strongest memories and I keep it now because it is like a postcard from my past.

This is some expensive smelling potion. My mother, sister and other female family members pass this around as if it were some secret to keep hidden from the rest of the world. A little goes a long way !
This perfume is some flowery juice! I smell lavish roses and violets mostly but there is enough sense in me to know that there is more to this story. Flowers keep dancing in and out of this lineup.... almost as if the rose and the violet are concerned queens protecting the other flowers from my scrutiny. And then the flowers become sweet and remind me of pollen. At last some woody cedar comes in and I sense some musk also. The rose and violet are still standing their ground. This is a strong perfume. I cannot wear such flowery perfumes on a daily basis but I will gladly sit next to anyone wearing this. The dry down is a lovely powdery note. I can see why they named this Paris. This is lovely, expensive.... but oh so ever lovely and romantic!

I am a rose lover and had this on my want list for a while. The other day I received a mini as a part of a swap. Overall, I like it. But it seems a bit dated. For some reason, it vividly reminded me my childhood friend's mother. I do not even know if she wore this perfume or not, I was just a child back then. Because of this association, I decided not to order a full bottle but I will finish the mini.

Classic, romantic, but still modern. However it is very much a fragrance of the 80's in scope. Definitely wearable and lovely well-made scent but just too much heavy rose and violet for me. This is such a BIG scent I find it too overpowering for me. I like warmer, closer to the skin scents.

This is one of those perfumes that I really regretted not spraying on a tester before my wrist because I had assumed that I would immediately love it. I found it terrible- a full on hit in the face. Unfortunately I was out shopping at the time so couldn't wash it off, it gradually made me feel more and more ill until I was in bed with a very bad headache that afternoon. Not for my tastes at all, but mostly wanted to add the review as a caution to try before you buy.

Love this perfume. First used it over ten years ago, and its still one of the best out there. It does something extraordinary to my sences; makes me feel very sexy and classy at the same time. Not quite an expert on the tones, but it gives off this strong lemony, sweetish & yet refreshing scent. I'm yet to smell anything quite like it, which makes it quite unique in my book.

This is a very simple perfume on me. It smells of violets and roses and that's about it. The base note is still violets and roses.

I happen to like this and if you like the sound of that too, then you would like Paris. However, if you want something more complex that changes, or something less floral, then this probably isn't for you unless you're looking for a change.

I mean 90s version of this perfume. It seems to me that nowadays version is a half of what it was then. I remember my vacation to the sea and how wonderful this frag opened itself accompanied with the sea breeze, smell of the sea water and the sunshine!!

On me Paris is a shockingly cheap-smelling chemical rose. It's far too sweet and Barbydoll for someone my age, but it would suit a teenager who likes strong florals. It's exactly the sort of perfume that you would expect to come out of a bottle like that.

I fell in love with this fragrance when i was 14. My friend used to wear this but it was far too strong which must have been edp . Years later now i have discovered edt version and fell in love but this time head over heels.

I have read many comparisons between the edt and edp. The way i find it is that edt is like edp minus the excessive aldehydes and harshness. This leaves edt like a lively sparkling scent. I never imagined what a difference the edt would make. Enough to purchase and give full five lips. I would certainly purchase again even though it lasts much less than the edp but lingers beautifully on clothes. A fragrance i can see as versatile.

I loved this before I even smelt it when I was a tween. Who can help but love a perfume rightly called Paris? It's a rainbow of a perfume that leaves a smile on your face and sweet dreams after a lovely day in a beautiful world-that's how i feel when I smell this.
There are so many flowers in this bouquet, it's close to overwhelming but in a good way, like if you were to really receive a enormous bouquet that you know cost a pretty penny for the sender. The flowers are stopped from being sickeningly sweet by the warm sandalwood and the composition is simply exquisite for something with so many notes, which in another perfumer's hands could end up as a fail.It' has a perceptible presence without being intrusive or too forward. Longevity a good 8 hours and counting.
This one definitely surpasses all competition, it's smooth, sweet, elegant, wistful, enchanting...I could go on. Let's just leave it as this was very very aptly named.

Ok, maybe this is because I was a teenager when this first came out, but to me Paris is an absolutely wonderful perfume. This is what I wanted to be: grown up, sexy, feminine, delicate but chic at the same time. It's the fragrance of a rose bouquet in an elegant, romantic party, where beautiful people toast with champagne and dance. Fortunately for me, my friends agreed, and I always got compliments for my fragrance. It was my signature perfume. And even though I am a different person now, I still get excited and feel butterflies in my stomach every time I smell Paris. And to me, this is what a truly great fragrance should do...

I have Paris EDP and even though i don't like the smell of heavy roses in a perfume, this one is different. Very alluring, romantic yet strong and it really makes you feel special when using it. I recommend it to women over the age of 25.

I would never say anything bad about this perfume because it is one of the scents I respect most and I used to offer it to my mother. Consider it sort ot untouchable, a true classic, whether one likes it or not, because tastes vary. Personally I do not find the scent overall particularly appealing, but I give to the perfumer the fact that she achieved to take something natural, the scent of rose, and modulate it in a way to confer it very well defined features it does not have in nature, changing its character in so well blended a way that it seems to be a creation of Nature itself. What Paris is to me is sharpened rose scent, due to the mixture of rose and hyacinth. Sharp, cutting, penetrating rose scent. I am thinking mostly of the EDP. And I find it brilliant.The EDP is so sharp and strong to the point of being felt almost like something material. The name of the perfume is great and it surprises me that no one before had thought of giving a perfume the name of the city of the perfumes - Paris. As I said, I can only show respect for this perfume.

A classic beauty that is very appropriately named after the city of love: Paris. And filled to the brim with the flower of love: Rose.

A spring walk through the "Parc de la Roseraie" in Paris. Roses everywhere and a hint of violet, lily and wood notes carried on a warm breeze. Parisiennes strolling, a silk scarf carelessly draped around their neck and the scent of effortless elegance and understated chic trailing behind them.

Yves Saint Laurents "Paris" is elegant, joyful, beautiful and romantic. A must smell for everyone who loves roses and/or is looking for a floral classic that compliments every woman and every occasion.

Silage is: "A rose by any other name would be called Paris". -- Longevity is: 8+ hours. A wonderful and classy rose garden in a bottle.

Oh no no no... This I DON`T like.

Very sharp and sour flowery smell, roses and violets mainly. Similar to Bvlgari Pour Femme. This will get you a headache in 3 seconds. It never gets softer either, it stays sharp and un-friendly.

Fantastic quality, sillage and longevity though.

Maybe I'm the only one that doesn't appreciate this beauty. I tested two times and my feeling is the same. Paris is old-fashioned, powdery not nice powdery but dirty powdery. I don't know what the ingredients come from, maybe the wood mixed with aldehyde. And where are roses and other flowers?

Very romantic and floral, plus the EDT really lasts. If you want to really leave an impact on a lover, spray on your skin then layer with the body lotion, which has a softer fragrance but lasts just about until you wash it off. And you'll be soft as buttered silk.

Yves Saint Laurent Paris EDT is surprising to me. I don't really know what I was expecting but it wasn't as nice as this.
I first had Paris on a card strip, it scented my bedroom for 9 days before finally fading. Impressive!
I went back for a skin test and had one squirt on my wrist which again lasted all day and even that one spray projected a couple of metres several hours later.
I was so impressed I bought a bottle and have been enjoying this huge floral bouquet all spring. Rose and violet dominate, and of the myriad other flowers involved here I struggle to pick out any except hyacinth. Its rather like being in a florist shop, not knowing which to pick, they're all so beautiful.
I got a very good deal on my bottle of Paris but I would have happily paid more. With the staying power it has my bottle will last years!

Very sophisticated, floral, and somewhat clean, here is another fragrance that smelles absolutely like the very best boutique soap money could ever buy. Paris is heavy on the rose and violets and lilies and general powdery floralcy; It's like sticking your nose in a massive bouquet of genetically enhanced, gargantuan flowers, each blossom the size of cabbage and possessing the fragrant potency of tiny tea roses and lily-of-the valley.

A reference floral and must-smell.

Devoted to roses no matter if they are antique, botanical, (clever)-hybrid ones and so on but they always MUST be fragrant, that's all. I've always regarded the old and original version of 'Paris' as one the most gorgeous homage to the queen of the flowers of ever, not just to a type of rose but to the scent of roses in abstract. The '80 version, although thought for a 'large' market had all the peculiarities of a distinguished, refined and elitarian scent: the cost of the production at that time was huge. No matter if it comes from an age when the majority of perfumes were 'loud' and overwhelming, after all fragrances - like fashion - reflect always their time and only great fragrances can pass the exam and keep on talking to the newer generations even years later their birth. Few of them can be regarded as 'universal' only when they speak the language of quality, beauty and well crafted creations. 'Paris' was an outsider remarkable for its unicity and his malleability: great even in the hottest summer, perfect in spring and sublime also in winter. Uncommon sillage and great persistence on the skin while it could even last days on clothes.
This was 'Paris' in my memory but in my cupboard also as I've still preserved a bottle of the original wonder!

I discovered an original black 1.6oz EDT box circa 1983 on e-bay. It is quite different from the familiar formula on todays market. This was truely the biggest and best rose perfume ever made. In its time, I only detected it from afar. Indeed by 1985, it was everywhere. The traffic jam of perfume from that era shall never be forgotten or matched.

Paris however was different. Its pays tribute to Apres l'Ondee and was like Nahema containing a profusion of rose damascenones so boldly. This is YSL running along side Guerlain equally. It is Sophia Grojsman's magnum opus. It is the definitive French rose perfume. Its production cost had to be astronomical at the time and it gradually weakend to the current formula.

This original bottle relys little on the supporting cast of violet and mimosa. The rose dominates the composition for hours and then the natural, rich sandalwood and oakmoss hold it up even further. They are no longer in the pink box.

This isnt sexy like Opium, bold like Rive Gauche or mysterious like Y. As great as they are, Paris explores love. This is the gentle, blushing, innocent love that happens once in a lifetime. One drop on your pulse is profound. It gets under your skin and into your heart. Its mood enhancing and hypnotic. I can almost taste the rose.

Paris is a timeless 20th century giant that was really only around for about 5 year in its pure strength. No wonder it was on display in the Louvre! It was a work of art. Often imitated, even by YSL itself, but never as great as those original bottles. Time is passing-get a bottle today before its too late!

I absolutely adore this one. It's hard to say why, as this is my mother's signature perfume and her all time favorite. Its crisp, sophisticated and comforts me whenever I feel down. But I could never imagine wearing it. Not because I consider it as an older women's scent (my mom is in her 60ies) It absolutely isn't! Its fine, floral and delicately powdery. At least on my mother. She has rather dry skin.
It will forever be what my mum smells like...

This is a classic perfume that I used to wear when I was 14. It was beautiful then and is still a masterpiece, beautiful sillage. Have revisted this recently and found the same amazing flowery start but it then turned to powder, which I didnt quite like. So, I gave it away to my mum and she fills the house with it. My kids say they like this perfume because it makes the house smell nice.

This reminds me of Devon Violets that my Grandmother used to purchase for me when I was a child, I wore this fragrance in my youth when it was first launched on to the market and I loved the sweetness I fear that this fragrance has been whipped to death and copied over and over so that it no longer sits well with other fine fragrances. Ideal for 16-25 year olds.

Strong Aldehydic Rose. a Luxurious feel, an instant Classic. slightly more on the Mature feminine side. Like the inside of an expensive purse. I have fond memories of my Mother wearing this in europe... Walking around the city, cobblestone roads, it Penetrates and projects in dry cold Winter air.
And... the dry down is Amazing, like an ultra Musty sweet Honey Rose. A YSL classic.

I love this perfume. I fell in love with it back in the eighties when I was a teenager and I smell it on other girls (couldn't afford one).

I still love.

It is definitely a rosy scent but it is strong and sophisticated. Its overpowering without being too strong it remains feminine. Though usually such perfumes are spring and summer perfumes, I like to wear this in the colder months, it smells just right. It has a nostalgic feel to it which I love.

Two perfumes make me think of Paris (the city) on a soft rainy (sizzling more than pouring) day Paris and Champs-Elysees.

Very intensive powdery rose and violet, hiacynth plus lily of the valley at the opening. Too sweet for me. It's nice, but not for my mood. After the opening, when the rose get silent it reminds Revlon "Charlie Blue". Longevity is 9 hours on my skin.

I just rooted through my mini collection and found a small bottle still in the box.
This was my signature perfume in the 80s, and all of Paris smelled like it because everyone was wearing it.
My sample seemed a bit old at first, but now I keep getting whiffs of it, and I'm falling in love again. The rose is still as dominant as it was so many years ago, but with the bergamot and violet balancing it out.
I thought it might smell outdated, but it's as fresh today as it was 30 years ago. I am going to have to buy a new bottle and start wearing this again!

I cannot understate how powerful this is or that it will either agree with your chemistry or ( as in my case ) will not . Use very very sparingly and you may find it tolarable but don`t overdo.

A mature floral perfume which projects massively and lasts a long time...

0-5 mins- Mature, distinctive perfume which is not too my personal taste. I find this very synthetic and chemical and a very pungent floral. I recognise the smell.

5 min - 5 hours - Same scent - 6-10 foot projection. I was complimented on how nice my perfume was. I can see that many will like this and think it a classic. It is not nice or sexy to me personally, however. Projection is amazing

5 - 8 hours -2 foot projection. Same scent. Little bit of soapiness but nothing to worry about

8 hours -bathtime and heavy scrub

8-12 hours- still on my skin and intense but no projeciton. Had I not bathed then this probably would have projected for 12 hours at least

If you like the scent then this could be fantastic for you

Through the eyes of Yves Saint Laurent Paris is the city from the movies about love seen in the childhood. Eiffel Tower, fountains and lawns, cafes and kissing couples everywhere. The scent is immodest, strong and pompous! It feels lil bit dated, because nowadays majority prefer something clean and faceless. Paris is very 80th, without modesty and paleness. I love this bouquet of honey sweet roses! Paris can make you put on your best dress and go for a walk.

I haven't worn this for a long time but it used to be one of my favorite florals. It's a classic floral. Feminine and elegant. Best for cooler weather or evenings though because it's not really light enough for Summer days IMO. Added bonus: I was stopped in the street a couple of times by men who told me I smelled great! It's a bit of a 1980s fragrance, not as complex as more modern scents.

After getting tired of this perfume, feeling a little too young for it, I gave it to my 78 year old grandmother. The woman loves this stuff. She feels like a queen. She's even afraid to use it so that it wouldn't ran out, the poor thing.

She wears this on 'special occasions', which aren't many I must say. I try to convince her to wear it a bit more. She likes it a lot. The rose really suits her age.

If you want a rose scent more appropriate for younger women, go for Parisienne. It's almost the same but a bit less aging.

Don't get me wrong. I loved this for about the whole 4 months, but I wanted to feel younger and fresher again.

I smelled this again after so many years. I used to love it about 20 years ago. I was very young but loved perfumes and Paris was my first grownup lady scent. It was dreamy, rosey but not heavy, like a rose heaven with complimentary flowers and a beautiful sandalwood soft base. EdT was my favourite as I found EdP too powdery and sweet/oily.
Even flankers like the Eau de Primtemps were great and unfortunately LE.
Now, what happened I don't know. Was it reformulated and made more synthetical? If yes, why???? why so many great fragrances need to go through this process?
Paris was both intense and gentle. Now it's a chemical ball thrown to your nose.

The EDT is a waste. EDP still smells good.

Think "Paris" as an elaborated mixture of vanilla, violet and rose (even if vanilla seems not be on the ingredients list), very pleasant and sexy but in a romantic way!
I have no idea how it smells after the reformulation but I remember it was so lovely any woman of any age could wear it all day and feel desirable and beautiful!
There is a happy harmony and an inviting romanticism in its composition and a soft luminosity which is not like Paris at all, but anyway..
Needless to say I like the perfume more than the city itself; this is a fragrance that you'll buy more than once!

UPDATE
An advice: Go for the parfum version.

One of the few perfumes that is 80’s in style, size and exuberance but can still be worn today without irony. It’s a cartoon-like rose with candied violet. A bit shrieky up top, but fortunately by the heartnotes the rose grows citric and astringent, lending a sweet/tart quality to the accord. Paris has a crystalline quality similar to Guerlain’s Nahema, but is far less dense and juicy than Nahema. 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.

Now I have tried Paris Eau de Parfum - with the golden top on the cap. What at wonderful scent. Wow. Not like the Eau de Toilette. This one is so deep, soft, fresh, sexy and superwomanish. I don't like The EdT-version, I think that one is heavy and overwhelming. This one is bright, a little bit more sweet than the EdT. If you find it - buy it!

Nu har jag provat Paris Eau de Parfum. Guldtopp på korken, guldgult innehåll. Vilken underbar doft. Jag är helt såld. Denna är inte alls som Eau de Toilette-versionen, den tycker jag är lite tung och övermäktig, men denna.. djup, mjuk, fräsch, sexig och superkvinnlig, liten aningens sötare än EdT'n. Hittar du den - köp den!

This used to be my regular scent when it first came out in the 1980s. I couldn't get enough of it. But I did get a little bored with it a decade later and returned to other timeless YSL favourites like Rive Gauche and, of course, the eternal "Y". But I might well return to "Paris" because on some days it's nice to feel enveloped by a giant rose because this is basically what Paris is: a heady rose which makes you feel drunk on rose syrup. But the dry down is truly wonderful -- leaving a faint trail of roses amid the sumptuous sandalwood. Certainly one of the best rose fragrances, ever!
However, the video featured here appears to be a car-ad. You have to wait a long time before she reaches for the bottle of Paris. Oh, and those alloy-wheel earrings are just so Sue Ellen in Dallas. I guess that's the kind of 80's woman, big-shouldered baby-pink jacket that this ad is aimed at.

As if the success of Opium wasnt enough, YSL launched Paris. It obviously became a hit for floral lovers! It ushered in the era of big hair, tall pumps and shoulder pads. Pink, ultra feminine and making a statement, all heads turned as you entered the room!

Sophia Grojsman was the nose behind it. It was presented as a modern tribute to the "city of lights". I find it very traditional with violet, hyacith, hawthorn and of course massive NEON 80s rose notes. Damascenones packed a punch-almost funerary. Fortunately, there are no aldeydes! It always had a liquoring appeal. It goes well with a cold glass of chablis. Mimosa?

The base is iris and sandalwood creating a powdery soft refrain from the large floral bouquet it supported. Its legacy has faded somewhat in todays market. It produced several flankers and finally Parisienne. Nothing could ever match its original character or Grand Scale.

Was looking to buy YSL Parisenne; however, Ulta was sold completely out of Parisenne! I happened to see the YSL Paris and decided to give it a try. A BIG MISTAKE!! Paris had me nauseated and wanting to hurl...THE HONEST TRUTH! It reeks of putrid roses that seem to envelope your senses and every thought. It was so strong that taking a shower didn't seem to release the scent from my wrist. More than 2 sprays will send you into coma or make bees attack you...If Paris smells like this perfume I would never want to get my passport stamped there...I ended up returning the perfume and purchased Burberry Brit EDP. Thank God for subtle scents with a hint of vanilla. Now Burberry Brit is soft, warm, and beautiful.

This is a BIG Pastel Pink Technicolor Rose, full volume and ebullient, a candied Violet and cool Geranium play best supporting roles in this blockbuster production. This perfume is larger than life and gregarious, absolutely Romantic and a little sexy but very very feminine, this would be extremely hard for a man to pull off. It has a tendency to take on a life of its own and wearing this is guaranteed to turn heads so be sparing in application as just one more spray can turn this from heavenly to monstrous.

This is a perfume that I think merits two different reviews...one for the vintage, pre-reformulation version, and one for the new, post-reformulation disaster.

Honestly they are like two different perfumes to me.

So...to start with...the new stuff...post-reformulation.

Well, to put it bluntly...it's really, really bad.

I felt like I was drowning in a heavy mist of heavy handed florals and thick musk.

It has a weird chemically note that smelled like trash cans filled with rotting flowers mixed with hospital disinfectant mixed with pencil shavings that made me nauseous too.

It's unrecognizable from the 80's/90's version that I remember smelling as a kid.

My Mom still has a bottle of the original vintage though, and spraying that is a world away from the new stuff.

It's light and delicate, with a sweet fizziness that reminds me of champagne.

The bergamot in the opening gives it a clean, sharp feel that then subsides into a plethora of beautiful florals, before drying down into a subtle, slightly woody musk.

Paris was a beautiful, sophisticated and timeless scent that has unfortunately been destroyed by reformulation.

If you can get hold of the vintage then it's worth it...but I wouldn't waste money on the new one.

Original Paris 8/10

Reformulation 1/10

Roses, violets, woods, booze, powder, and the aura of every French man and woman's perfume wafting on a breeze across the tables of an outdoor cafe. This fragrance is truly remarkable in its strength and artfulness, and stands alone as one of the few contemporary feminine perfumes to successfully straddle old-world and modern styles. Definitely something headache-sufferers should be cautious with, as it boasts incredible sillage and longevity. Still, Paris is full of light and sound, and I do believe it's a terrific product from Yves Saint Laurent.

I believe that this perfume has had some of it's original notes replaced with some synthetic ones... it can be the only explanation as to why it smells so stuffy and so very different now than when it did back in the 80's to late 90's.... it was one of my all-time favorite scents back then, I even wore it on my wedding day.
But today sadly, it is a different Paris, a mere shell of it's former Glorious self. I wish they (YSL) would make it the way they used to. (darn those perfume regulations!)

"Paris" is a classic fragrance, sweet, floral, with the promise of laughter, love, and fun. I feel it was created for a joyous girl who embraces life and loves to travel. So I bought it. However, I found that every time I tried to wear it, "Paris" enveloped me in a cloud of something faintly unpleasant and artificial, not unlike the scent of a cheap household cleaner mixed with a bar of rose soap. Paris smelled the same on my skin hours later, and the long-awaited expensive scent of warm and fragrant blooms just never "developed" on my skin; I tried! But "Paris" ended up instead smelling on me like a dried bunch of dusty old flowers doused in cheap disinfectant which was so disappointing. The soap and the talcum powder were delicious but the actual fragrance "Paris" itself - be it EDT or EDP - just did not work on my skin. Très dommage! Once I wore it to go out for a concert, and my male friend disliked it so much that I had to wash it off again LOL. He said it was too "sweet and unnatural" and the smell reminded him of disinfectant used in the toilets of an expensive hotel!! I was shocked.On my colleague "Paris" smelled expensive and divine on my cousin but regretably it was not for me. I ended up liking the lovely pendant shaped bottle more than the actual perfume itself! "Paris": to sum it up, it was a one-sided love affair that ended badly (for me!)

I had a bottle of Paris in my 20's and really enjoyed wearing it.

It's bright, fresh and very feminine. I would get lots of compliments when I wore this and was even followed once while I was out shopping by a man who came up to me to ask me what perfume I was wearing because he thought it was lovely (either that or it was just an excuse to try and chat me up!!). Sadly, my bottle went AWOL on my travels in America when I lived there for awhile and I haven't smelled this perfume since!

Despite it being an 80's fragrance (I think 80's anyway!), Paris never smelled dated to me and always had a timeless feel to it. The same can't be said for YSL Opium which is the almost Satanic antithesis of this perfume!

It might be time for me to get myself another bottle of Paris!

It really annoys me that this smells divine in the bottle, on a tester and on friends but not on me! On my skin the lovely violet becomes cloying and sickly and obscures all the other notes. So sad that it doesn't suit me!

once again, as with every perfume that isn't a maudlin formula repeated by the dozens, this scent works really well on some of us and smells like, or is perceived as, insecticide on others.

well, i happen to be one of the fortunate ones, in more than one way. not only does it smell really good on me, i was given over a dozen bottles of extrait some years ago. delish. each one in its own little rose coloured box, with its own fat rhinestone cap. they are keeping company with about twenty bottles of tocade someone else gave me before that and together they make beautiful music.

if one were to describe paris in other than fragrance terms, what would one say? not elegant in the way bal a versailles is, but then that is one-of-a-kind. not "rich" in the manner of 1000 or joy. not "the soul of a flower" in the manner of fracas or bellodgia.

no. paris, to me, is a slightly ditzy, very happy, offbeat youngish woman who gaily trips through le tout paris and whose joie de vivre is admired by the inexperienced young and the more sedate members of society, whose memories are triggered by her flighty pleasantness.

This reminds me of the Hollywood glamor times of the 40's- 50's, which in my opinion is a very good thing. Great lasting power and I can mostly smell rose, lilies and violet. Lovely perfume, very elegant and a true YSL classic <3

There are so many reviews here,so I will be short without going into any poetic descriptions.
Amazingly, in the drydown Paris reminds me of Joy by Patou. The longest lasting YSL im my collection ( I have EDP. Gorgeous and luxurious floral classic!
I tried its flankers but they are just too weak and watered down to my nose. But layering them with the original will be fun!
Absolutely love it!

A Tale of the Parisian Sisters Y.S.L Paris & Dior Diorissimo both French and exudes Glamor yet very
different like Night and Day; Paris is a bold
gregarious Sister nothing is quiet about her everything
from the notes Of Paris is big The opening packs a punch
from the Sweetish mimose bright greens Roses hyacinths
to the fiery Sandalwood finishing she'll demands your
attention and wont let go; She also has a lot of personas She's a hot clubber on the dancefloor seducing
all the guys amid her path A top corporate raider who
has everyone under her thumb Or a Diva who needs to be
a center of attention.

Diorissimo a reserved sister of Paris prim & proper
and modesty is her aura Simple and Elegant she doesn't
need a thousand floral notes not Hot deep woody incense to be notice just a few fresh Lilies green
notes and bergamot Her Persona include being a Ballerina plus a housewife and mother she rather work
behind the scenes then being center stage;
If Y.S.L Paris is the fiery part of Parisian Elegance
so Diorissimo is the Ice.

Paris makes you feel surrounded by a bouquet of fresh, sweet, delicate roses and violets straight from the garden. Violet is the dominant scent, so if you don't care for violet fragrances, you might not like Paris. In fact, Paris reminds me of violet candies and violet chewing gum! Paris is very sweet like that violet candy; it is innocent and playful, youthful, joyous, charming, feminine and romantic. Although when I was young I adored the original Paris, now at age 46 it's too sweet and cloying for me. I can see how it could be headache inducing in some. Recently I tried a Paris flanker - Jardins Romantiques - which is softer, greener and more refreshing to my nose. I absolutely love it! I traded my old original Paris for Jardins Romantiques, which is now in my top 5 favorite fragrances, and a scent I use almost daily. I'm looking forward to trying all the other Paris flankers as well.

P.S.: Check out the 1986 video of the Yves Saint Laurent ad on this page, with the pretty young lady in the huge shoulder-padded pastel pink power suit - tres chic and so '80's! You can see they marketed this to a young, hip crowd, with the electric guitar in the soundtrack. I love how at the end she's deliriously happy, showing off to the admiring guys by dabbing herself with the perfume, with her head thrown back, laughing!

I loved this perfume in my late teens and early 20s. But after a while I started developing sinus headaches when wearing it. Looking at the list of notes, I think it must be the mid notes of violet and the base notes of iris that made me want to scrub it off before it was ready to evaporate. Pity, a joyous scent.

(This review is for Eau de Toilette)

PARIS is a grand floral composition exploding with joy and happiness. It is full of life and light, dancing and singing in celebration of spring and romance. I yet to find another composition that capture the essence of Paris the way this fragrance does. It is flamboyant, romantic, lighthearted and fun. This fragrance has the power of transporting me to Paris in early summer as I imagine strolling down the streets of my favorite city while holding a gorgeous bouquet of roses. It brings smile on my face and unconsciously I start humming the happy tune.

The opening is bright and green with a touch of bergamot, mimosa and hyacinth. The rose appears soon accentuated slightly by tart cassia and geranium. However, the geranium is not overpowering, so the whole composition remains strong but light and airy. The heart notes are gorgeous bouquet of roses, lilies and violets wrapped with powdery but very chic orris (iris). The dry down is very sensual powdery musk with a bit of amber and oakmoss.

This fragrance is a complex floral but the rose note is prominent right from the start. The rose is incredibly romantic in this fragrance. I definitely recommend this gorgeous fragrance for floral and rose lovers. The sillage and longevity is great considering that this is EDT.

Paris is the fragrance that once saved my sanity.

Paris arrived on the scene in 1983 when I was living in Santa Fe, about to be married and trying very hard not to let my miserable job at the telephone company make me insane. I answered one call after another with hardly a moment to breathe in between --hundreds per day-- from impatient people who assumed all phone company employees were total idiots. Never before nor since have I been so unhappy at work. My refuge was the outrageous outfits I wore (allowed because we met no customers face-to-face) and the fragrance I chose each day.

Where does Paris come in? Right here: no matter how rude the customers, no matter how disrespectful the supervisors were toward us (management vs union), when I wore Paris I could close my eyes for a few seconds, inhale deeply and imagine myself far away in exotic Paris. Violets and roses calmed me and the light, watery song of Paris kept me sane. My edp can still take me there, no matter the season, no matter the stress level.

I congratulate Ms. Grojsman for rejecting the current popularity of fruity-tooty and foody/gourmand fragrances. She understands the essence of femininity and in this age of so-called "unisex" perfumes, I find her disinterest in creating fragrances for men oddly reassuring. Her refusal to reformulate is similarly refreshing; good to know Paris will always smell like Paris.

The Paris I have is the Fleur de Parfum version... the bottle shape is similar, but the color is not. Mine is yellow, vintage looking. The cap is golden, with a rose etched on the top. I got it in a swap, and I'm happy to own it.
For some unexplained reason, it makes me think of my grandmother; not that she had it; but there is something about it, that says, to me, "classy, old lady".
It's not a stinker by any means, but it's a strong, old, almost wilted, powdery rose, mixed with violets and a dusty old book smell.
Although heavy, there is a transparency in it, like rose petals pressed inside the pages of a book...
Definitely the Bulgarian rose type, not the Middle Eastern kind.
Yet it's far away from being oily , on the contrary, the dryness of sandalwood dominates, if you can ignore the soapy notes. I refuse to smell soap in it, because I usually run away from soapy scents, and I really want to love this one.
I am a rose lover and I collect rose scents, and Paris is a legend.
But I must admit, Paris is one of the most "uncontemporary" rose scents I own, because I don't want to say it's old-fashioned, elegant, timeless, very distant, beautiful to sniff but very difficult to wear.
When I do wear it, I feel like a movie star from a black and white movie.

Paris is so beautiful, abundant, rich and vivid scent. It smells even better to me, when I try to forget the fashion of the times when it was created. I so much despise the fashion of 80-ties. It is too monstrous and the overdone shiny, plastic ugliness of almost anything done in 80-ties makes me sick. But thanks to this headless sense for abundance some wonderful perfumes were created. All we have to do now is to learn how to see them through the current prism.

this one is up there with Giorgio as a totally recognisable, 80's scent. It's fun, fresh and very wearable in comparison to the current sugar water stuff. More young women should pick this one up as a fun scent instead of the celeb brands. I find it too sweet and bright but enjoy smelling it on someone else! I remember a lovely friend of mine, Denise, wore this in the 80's and I think of her as soon as I sniff it!

I love YSL Paris. It was given to me as a Christmas gift by an employer and I was skeptical. How did she know I would like this? Scents are so personal... but ever the adventurer who likes to try different fragrances, I wore this. It was love at first scent.

Paris is a garden of roses. Not hybrid roses, but old fashioned aromatic cabbage roses. Warm, fresh, not overly sweet, brightened with a touch of cassis and bergamot, and tempered with mosses and woods. It's bright and vibrant and reminds me of a sunny day strolling along the Champs Elysées.

Since the day I was given it as a gift, it is now one of the staples of my perfume wardrobe. I've worn it in all seasons, for all occasions.

MMMMMM...Paris! The perfumed city, the City of Love , the City of Lights. When I was growing up, I was told the french are rude, smelly (either musky/dirty or too perfumed) and that they hated Americans. It just goes to show how wrong influences can be when you are young and impressionable. Every one I have ever met from Paris, has been wonderful! Kind, considerate and full of life! And they all smelled divine! This fragrance is also like that...

Always, when I was growing up Mother wore only Chanel No5 EDC-in the rechargeable black square sprayer (with gold collar and the interlocked capital "C's" on the top). To me, THAT was French perfume. This scent has the same type of quality-heavy flowers, but not overly intense; it's musky, but not "stinky" and rich but not haughty or arrogant. It is absolutely beautiful!!

The opening here is not all that "80s powerhouse" or aldehydieous. It begins with light springtime flowers (hawthorn, hyacinth, mimosa) and some delightful greens and just enough bitterness to accent the floral sweetness. The carnation adds a bit of dryness, but it doesn't flatten the other blossoms. The heart is more summery in my opinion-roses in full bloom, jasmine scented nights, milky lilies and warm subtle ylang-with the fuller sexier flowers and the greeness of muguet, linden and orris; it reminds one of trees in bloom, grass growing and all the earth bursting forth in heavenly aromatic perfumes. The drydown has the typical oakmossy feel, and musk for sure; yet the luxurious woods and the creamy iris and heliotrope keep it from being too oriental or too chypre. It is like spring, into summer, followed my autumn...all in the course of one wearing. AMAZING...

Sillage: very good
Longevity: excellent
Overall: 4.25/5

I seriously doubt that this is what Paris (capital of France) actually smells like...but then again; it does smell romantic, lovely and very old world. Elegant, charming and very very riche. This scent brings to mind the old tune: "I love Paris in the Springtime..." *hums happily*

To me the essence of this fragrance is the explosion of roses that wraps you up all day and gently lulls you to sleep. I tread lightly and dreamily when I wear this fragrance as to do more would be to break its beautiful spell.I love the musk and cedar in the base notes that give it the mystery and sensuality that matures it into more than just a pretty rose to a rose with secrets.

I love this fragrance as my mum used to wear it when I was little. It smelt so gorgeous on her!! My husband bought me a bottle before we were married and I used to use it quite regularly for a while but found it a bit overpowering on me. Now I am that little bit more grown-up I think i'll give it another go especially after reading all the lovely reviews.

My mother used to wear that perfume when she was young, she still does occasionally. One day I discovered that she had left a close to empty bottle of Paris in the living room. I decided to try it out. When I first smelled my wrists I was almost convinced that I had been knocked unconcious by goblins and that they had dumped me in an English garden.

This perfume is extremely floral and I can detect a note of rose which resembles to the ones that Mum cultivates in our garden. After a while it started to smell like flowers that had been plucked and dropped in the grass. I like the fact that this perfume smells very floral without being artificial or overpowering.

It is the smell of a beautiful garden in a bottle.

This one is a masterpiece by sophia Grojsman. It smells like a fragrance of its time no matter one wore it back in the 80s, 90s or wear in 2000 it smells always like a newly launched perfume and very opulent. I loved it when my aunt used to wear it in the 90s and then she gifted me her packed back up bottle and I just adored it and I still do.

Growing up I couldn't stand this fragrance, I found the roses and violets rather overwhelming and nauseating. It always used to bring out my allergies.

I tried this again recently and for some reason I found myself grwoing to love it.

This isn't one of those versatile fragrances which you can wear all the time - It seems that there needs to be a certain time and place to be wearing Paris.
I find that Paris has its own magic when worn on a rain-drenched day during Spring.

Gorgeous... but not to be worn 24/7.

I had the EDT of this back in the '80s and I loved it. The combination of roses and violets was intoxicating, and I loved the black-and-pink packaging. Fast forward 25 years or so, and I can definitely detect the reformulation of this scent. It still smells very clean to me, but either the rose used to be more multi-dimensional or the hyacinth note was stronger, adding more richness to the fragrance. Also, now, I notice an almost PVC-plasticky note in there somewhere. Make no mistake--it's still very recognizable as Paris and it bears the Sophia Grosjman stamp...it's just changed, and I'm not sure if I'm totally OK with that.

Beautiful daytime fragrance in spring or winter, may be a worn in summer at night. Powdery roses that scream "I am what I am, love me or leave me"!

When I bought this perfume, I was looking for something different and something that would cheer me up after a painful break-up... I remember sniffing shelves after shelves of perfumes and thinking how unoriginal and boring everything was- and then I stumbled across this little gem of a bottle!

It was love at first sniff. There is no other fragrance more positive than this one! It's like a symphony played in a major accord! Happy, happy, happy!

I almost wore out my 50ml bottle, but ended up giving the rest of it to my mom, because the scent had become overwhelming. I still love it, but for the moment I find it too powerful. But it was a great energy boost whenever I needed one!

P.S. I just spritzed a little on my wrists - for old times' sake - and OMG I still find it beautiful! It smells like sweet flowers in full bloom in the sunshine, like a promise of honey :)

This fragrance is truly Paris in the bottle. Each city has its smell and YSL managed to catch and put the smell of this romantic city into the bottle.
It is so strange, but when I stepped out of the plane at the end of July, CDG Paris airport smelled like YSL Paris EDT! This fragrance is about roses, blooming near Notre Dame in summertime, there's a distant note of the cigarette smoke mixed with a smell of morning cappuccino and fresh sweet bread rolls, watery smell of Seine river, and everything is sinking in roses!
I am so in love with Paris!..

I can only wear Paris EDP - strangely the EDT gives me a headache. I think the EDP softens more on my skin and I get the soft mix of rose and violet - sillage is very good. Haven't worn this for a while but feel the need to give it another go - like it more in cooler weather - bit heady for hot summer days.

In the early 90s' I had a manager who was a heavy smoker and seemed to use this perfume exclusively. She keeps a bottle of Paris in the office. She was loud, agressive and the most intelligent woman I ever met. I feared and admired her at the same time. The combination of Paris & the cigarette smoke on her clothes created a rather unpleasant scent that I can never forget. I really didn't like the scent. Perhaps today if I smell this scent on someone else, I might have a different opinion!

Paris EDP is what happens when violets and roses make babies!!!

There is nothing shy or retiring about this scent, to me it is all about joyful, youthful exuberence and big, big flowers. It is sunshine & lollipops. It is a fat little labrador puppy running with abandon across the lawn. It is magnificant.

Just a word of warning though, you only need one squirt, probably right between the boobs so it wafts up peacefully. And don't try to stick your nose directly on it until drydown, it is so strong that it felt like it was reaching up my nose & wriggling around in my brain.

I love this. Wore it as a teen and bought it two years ago when I realized how much I still loved it! For some reason--this reminds me of a "tea" scent. It is different-my man hated it on me though-was using as (*gasp*) a room freshener-when my best gf snatched it out of my hand. It says a lot SHE loves it too--Cashmere is her other favorite.

This is a rather 'cold' fragrance that inhibits the scent of dew laden roses and sheer violets. There's an underlying 'green' note that prevents Paris from smelling too sweet.
The smell reminds me of walking along a rain drenched footpath in a cosmopolitan city under a dark sky.
But for some reason, I find this a little cloying - I'm always sneezing when I try this on.

I love rose (I'm a Stella McCartney freak), but I don't like this one. My late mom used to wear this in the 80's before she converted to Clinique's Aromatics. Parisienne to me is a toned down version of this and I'm happy to wear that but not this... there is just something about it - maybe too sweet? Makes me feel ill. Reminds me of my mom of course and probably in my mind I've added a hint of sadness to this one.

it is a big huge bouquet of pink roses. Freshly picked with a hint of green notes.

Paris got me in first sniff...

yes, it smells classic, but not old. it is timeless instead.

unlike most rose fragrances, Paris is not too hand soap-y. it lasts long too!

another pleasant surprise for myself: it doesnt change to typical striking sour drydown i tend to get with roses.

and ladies: guys loves this one! trust me.

All YSL Beauty and Fragance products are of great quality; they are also very expensive, but never disappoint. I usually hate perfumes that smell clearly of roses, the classic rose scent that we call classic not because it is excellent but because it is found almost everywhere with very few variations. "Paris" is not the usual but the excellent: roses and feminity idealized and triumphant. It inspires me such a powerful joy. I love it.

This is one of those "big" 80's perfumes that you love or hate. If you love them YSL did them better than anyone. It's bold, unmistakable and the florals are clear and true. What makes it special is the sandalwood base. It warms the flowers and cuts the sweetness of the violets. If you want heads to turn when you walk by you may want to investigate this perfume.

Gosh..I remember Paris very well. It was my very 1st 'grown-up' perfume back when i was about 9 or 10. It was an xmas present from my brother and his girlfriend. Whenever i went to visit my brother i always used to use his girlfriends 'paris'. I loved it.When i smell it now it brings back happy childhood memories. A very heady aromatic floral bouquet of a scent, and, to my nose the Hyacinth and Lily really stood out above the other floral notes. Its nice to see from the other reviews that this perfume is still highly thought of and regarded as it is an unmistakable scent that lasts throughout the day. x

Sweet as bonbons. But it also smells like a big bunch of fresh roses added a bit of lily of the valley and violets. In spite of the bonbons it's a very nice and classic floral scent - very sophisticated and very YSL.
A crisp and sweet rose scent.

The new reformulated version is nothing like the old Paris. It's powdery in a way that doesn't suit the roses. It smells like a perfume that has been kept for too long and now has turned rancid.

In 3 words: ROMANTIC - SOPHISTICATED - SWEET

SHERAPOP your review is a blast and, yes, this IS Dallas!

Paris is on my mind; yesterday I was working with roses and, instead of smelling roses, I was smelling PARIS. Yes, Paris has reached the point of (in)famacy such that it IS the rose, the perfume interpretation of it anyway. Stella McCartney and Bvlgari do a stellar job of reinterpretting it, but Paris, like a beloved great-aunt, is to my mind THE great rose in perfumery.

That said, I find Paris to be wonderfully enjoyable, in MODERATION. Spray more than 3x, and you're transported to the permed-hair shoulder-padded 80s, but with a light hand, there's none of that. Although the opening smells obnoxiously boozy and green, spray lightly and the rose heart is dewy and velvety, with startling splashes of color.

If she were a painter, Sophia Grojsman would share a pallete with Edgar Degas and work only on sundrenched Sunday afternoons. She would nap in the sunlight filtered through the studio window, play Debussy in the background. And then she would create Paris.

Paris doesn't work for me, however much I adore it, simply because I cannot abide violets. If there is one floral easily detectable under the rose, it is violet, so tinged with regret, I will cast my sight toward the summertime flankers.

Yves Saint Laurent PARIS is a *very* floral fragrance--a huge flower garden dominated by roses of all colors and sizes. It's all a bit overwhelming: I feel as though I'm wearing a huge corsage. Or maybe twelve.

The flowers do smell nice and fresh and as genuine as they would be at a rose competition--perhaps at a state fair--but I feel uncomfortable in this scent. It's really not me. And I must say that it does not cohere in any way with my concept of Paris.

PARIS seems more along the lines of what Monica Lewinsky may have worn to go with her blue dress. Yes, as others have said: big hair, shoulder pads... Hmmm...earlier images, too, of Joan Crawford in MILDRED PIERCE keep popping up in my mind, along with one of my favorite movie lines of all time: "No wire hangers!!!!"

Perhaps a better name for this fragrance would have been DALLAS.

This is one loud rose fragrance that I do enjoy greatly.

As a child I always preferred the scent of the Black Madonna rose to any other rose in my Mother's garden. It had such a rich, distinctive smell that has been so well emulated through Paris.

This fragrance opens with rich, (and in some ways harsh) rose, gernanium, green notes and what seems to be aldehydes. There is a definite soapy/powdery quality throughout the composition which I find rather alluring.

Just looking at the adverts, I can't say that Paris is particularly sexy or seductive. I'd say forget the sexual aspect and focus on the romantic and classic feel of the scent. This is romantic, candle-lit dinners in a restaurant with a view of the Eiffel Tower, not a clothes-tearing, extremely urgent romp, beneath red satin sheets in a sleazy motel.

I also find this scent to be quite fresh, almost something that I could imagine wearing during the heat of Summer, despite the scent being quite strong. For me, Paris sparkles with vitality and commands attention.

The lasting strength is absolutely amazing. Even showering doesn't completely rid oneself of this potent fragrance.

To some this will seem out-dated, far too strong and 'nightmarish', however I do have hope that some will appreciate this fragrance like I have.

Wow, I guess this is mostly a love-or-hate scent. Frankly, I thought it was fine, though not something in my character style. I didn't get the slap in the face by the gigantic circus-clown-rose people are talking about, nor did I get assaulted by detergent-like citrus notes. What I did get was an onset of lush, pale rose, very gentle and fairly true to life, with an underscoring of faintest powdery notes. As it warmed on the skin, I could detect what I read to be lily notes, and a watery feeling. Not aquatic, like the 'cool' fragrances we have these days, but more like a very fresh bud in clear water with green leaves. Very pretty, overall. I did use only a small spritz, so perhaps in large doses this is overwhelming, but that could be said of any perfume. Moderation is key.

I bought it when I was pregnant some 23 years ago...and everybody told me I stunk. So I'm not sure if it was my hormones....but I thought it was great!

Nope..tried it yesterday and it IS nasty!

My signature scent. It's rosy, yes, a bit powdery, very feminine and classic. I spray it on in the morning and still smell it the next morning, and this smell makes me spray it on that day as well, and the next day, too. it just goes so well with my skin that I can't be bored of it, although it seems to be very simple. But people are asking me to wear it when I change my scent for a day or too, just to give way for my other favourites. I think it's a great creation and nowadays when not as popular as it has been in the 80's, it can be a real signature.

A big and stinky rose. It just can't possibly get bigger and stinkier than this. A classic I'm gonna keep in my vanity drawer - far away from people's noses and once in a while get guilty pleasure sneaky sniffs.

UPDATE: I now have a couple of bottles of vintage EDT, hmmmm.... This smells different - incredibly tender pink and green ribbons. Voila! Now I can actually pull it out of my drawer.

I like this one. On first sniff it seems very simple-- sort of like a rose single note. However, you can distinctly smell the citrusy top notes, which then fade away to an array of floral notes-- notably violet, rose, and lilies-- until the slightly powdery, oakmossy dry down. It's a classic, and a good staple for a floral lover. This one is light, but not too "fresh," and unoffensive. Good for every day wear, especially in the spring. This is also a good fragrance for a woman of almost any age. I appreciated it as a teenager and I know older women also enjoy this scent.

Roses are red, Violets are blue...

A little too floral for my liking but I remember the girls in highschool (only 2 years ago) were rather fond of this.

I can imagine myself wearing this in my 30's. But not now.

Grace in a bottle! I met Paris EdT (EdP is too powdery) in 1989 when I was young and it will always remember those years full of hopes! I wore in my first teenage trips abroad as a Foreign Languages student and it always reminds me of the sense of freedom I felt far from home strict atmosphere.
I know it's one of '80s staples, but it's just a classic rose scent with a lovely delicate yet tenacious woody basenote. I smell mimosa and violets too, but they are so well blended together that Paris ends up being a beautiful bunch of roses and flowers you would put your face in. It's an enchanted garden full of flowers and sun in warm spring. I wouldn't call it a sexy scent, nonetheless it's utterly feminine and romantic, very elegant when used with sense on right chemistry. I noticed that more older ladies than young ones wear it.
For me it's the perfume of happiness, the essence of grace, happiness and freedom to travel.
The only disadvantage with Paris is that it has become such a classic and acquired taste it's not very original anymore.

This was the first perfume I really fell in love with... you could say, this was the one that started it all! It was being worn by a close family friend who was staying in our home, and I was so intrigued by the beautiful, complex floral notes - it was so feminine, yet not like any of the other "grandmother-ly" florals that I had experienced up until that point. I love the strong rose notes, I think that really softens it... in any event, this one has been around so long for a reason, it is truly an iconic classic fragrance, perfect for a woman of any age. Love!

I fell in love with this fragrance, coz the beautiful floral scent just carried me away. I know it's an old perfume, but it's endless, and Irreplacable just like Chanel. If U want a scent to last at day, this strong perfume will really hit the spot.

What a gorgeous, timeless classic this is! Instantly recognizable, yet never boring. Contrary to public belief it is neither sweet, nor girly, and it certainly isn't dated. It's a grown-up woman's scent: elegant, refined and joyful. It's almost like a declaration of spring.
The edt is a bit "greener" and gets slightly powdery. I, however, prefer the edp - a rich and heavenly nectar to indulge in for hours on end.

I remember this fragrance back when I was a little girl. I first smelled it on my aunt and after the years I fell in love with it. It's a very classy and clean perfume, just as the French women are. It has a light, flowery smell that is never overwhelming.

Oh Paris! You beautiful fragrance... Somewhere in my past holds the memory of this delicious scent - perhaps on one of my friends' mothers, or my school teachers... (I am too young to have remembered this as a teenager, being only born in 1986).

It took me a while to warm up to this Yves Saint Laurent scent. I used to be accustomed to floral fragrances ALWAYS being sweet, so when I met this one it just didn't make sense. Now I understand it... It's so very floral, with a rose heart - but it manages to be attractive and not sweet. Yes, it's punchy and a bit loud, but it's also complex and deeply seductive!

This was one of both my grandmother and aunt's signature scents, along with Rive Gauche. I can't tell you how I felt when I smelled this - reminded me instantly of my grandmother. I'm usually not one for rose scents, but this is so delicious. Definitely going to purchase this as soon as I can.

Somehow I missed the whole 80's Big Hair, Big Shoulders, Big Perfume thing -- I guess there is finally some justification for not having been fashionable in my high school years. In any case, I tried Paris for the first time today and found it entirely pleasant. It was not nearly as powdery on me as Bvlgari Pour Femme (which is more subtle, certainly, but contains a half-hour of Mildew Smell somewhere in the heart, on me at least). It was not nearly as loud as I expected it to be, having read some reviews of the original formulation of Paris. I suspect that I've got the reformulated version, because it had pleasant but not overwhelming sillage and lasted about 4 1/2 hours (the EdP).

Rose is definitely at the center of this fragrance, but I definitely get the violet too, as well as some other, less defined floral scents. Very pleasant. Because I prefer my roses to be light and sheer, though, I'm going to look for one of the limited editions, which seem to have the lightness I like in a rose scent.

What this perfume lacks in subtlety, it gains in lightheartedness.

Extremely powdery floral. It's like a more subtle version of Bvlgari Pour Femme, which I love. I liked the scent a lot but I'm more taken with the Pour Femme. The major difference is the lack of carnation in this scent, which some may love.

Give them both a try back to back when purchasing if this is your style of perfume. Another note, while I like this scent, I can't stand it's pink bottled counter part. It captures the more green aspects of a rose.

I think that Paris was way ahead of it`s time, and adamant 80-s somehow never came to my mind when I met it. It is lush and beautiful, very feminine - and has a certain freshness to it, like a drop of cold dew, a green stroke - to soften the sweetness.I remember it being a mood lifter,and I would like to re-try it on myself.

Never felt the roses in this one, I always considered this to be a really dreadful fragrance to the point of nausea.
It just goes so unbearable and sharp on my skin. So glad I never purchased this one!

In the 80's Paris was my sister signature scent for the night (Anais Anais was her daily scent). It's one of the most feminine fragrance I know and I bought it recently. This smell remind me those years and the time we were together.

Ouf! I think a lady needs to be very dignified and beautiful to wear this without it being tiresome. Roses and violets are not exactly a novel combination, something is needed for lift and spark. The bergamot is lost from start to finish, and the sandalwood merely adds to the sense of sameness. This is is all too Edwardian for me; it makes me think of dowagers shopping for hats on the Champs Elysees, except that unlike a dowager this thing doesn't have the grace to subside. In the grand tradition of perfumes I don't like, this one has a longevity so pronounced it's utterly macabre. It stays on my skin for days.

I wear YSL Paris a lot and really enjoy it. It's so flowery and clean smelling but with a little twist of something different. I think it's bottle design and box represent it beautifully.
It's the only scent I've found so far that is this girly without being too sweet or rosey.

In my opinion, its a fragrance to combine with festive spirit :D when i used this, my mom always asked to me: what is smelling like wine? :D its your perfume? :D
its like a nice-cheerful-colored flowers bouquet.
Very suitable for special outside parties ... with a cute dress, attractive lipstick ;) jejeje

This time I decided not to judge perfume by its packaging, but I would be right if I would. I see it was launched in 80's, but for me it is the smell of early 90's. Perhaps it was unique in its' time, but now I just know I smelled many like this one in my teens on my mother or her friends, perhaps some of them even had it. Very strong, sweet and sour at the same, too flowery. I wouldn't buy it even as the present to my mom, because I hope she's over it or the similar scents, and it doesn't speak to me personaly

Sound, piquant, rose smell. These roses in this are cheerful, flirting, civilize - as from city park, not from country garden. Smell is very elegant. It is necessary to have shoes on heels for it, fine dress and careful haircut.

Both this and anaise anaise (don't know if tats how it is spelt?)I used to wear many years ago. I haven't tried it lately (any of them)
But i know they both have cherished memories for me.

Beautiful fragrance. It starts with a few sharp notes (80s style), but dries down in a perfect rose - violet harmony. It also has an outstanding sillage. I agree with caribou about the romantic quality of the perfume.

Extravagantly romantic rose, violets and more, in a fresh multicolor bouquet. In the EDT, sheerer and more green. In the EDP, technicolor splendor! This was my wedding fragrance; it always brings me joy.
