Vice Versa was launched 1999 as a limited edition fragrance, followed by the make-up collection of the same name (as it was the case with In Love Again the previous year). It is created in cooperation with perfumer Karine Dubreuil, bringing the composition of rich colors, fresh, fruity and floral, represented in the following shades: red, orange and pink. The fragrance plays with opposites; it is sweet and savory, simple and sophisticated.

Top notes are Chinese mandarin, cherry tomato and raspberry. The heart flourishes with bluebell, tuberose, peony, orange blossom, freesia and Indian jasmine emphasizing the femininity of the composition, together with fruity aromas of blueberry, peach and melon. Florentine iris, amber, musk, vanilla and cedar are in the finish.

Available as 100 ml EDT.

Very strong dusty tomato with raspberry and blueberry after-math. It is unique and no comparison for some abovementioned. Too bad, it's discontinued. On the other hand- I have it in my huge collection, so may be it is not to bad.

I still have one kept safely in its BOX, which I use it in very Special occasions. It was one of my favourite perfumes ever - a perfume that I fell in love with and I never "forgiven" YSL for stop selling it. It is a sweet perfume with a unique in my opinion smell. I wish I could find a similar smell like this again....

I was a child in the 90s when my mother got a small sample of this perfume. She gave it to me and I sniffed the sample and it was something I've never smelled before. The scent of this perfume was strange and incredible. I held tight to the small sample and never used the liquid inside because I wanted to save it forever.

Now 18 years later my sample is lost somewhere. I wish you could find this perfume somewhere or perhaps another perfume with a tomato note that was similar to this.

All I can say is that I hope YSL will bring it back!

I miss it so badly! Sigh.

Oh my god, I just saw this photo of Vice Versa and remembered that I had a bottle of it years ago! I never did finish it and I may still have it around somewhere (I'l have to rummage around to see if I can find it!). So, if it is discontinued and anyone's looking for it then feel free to contact me and I'll see if I can locate my bottle of it!

This limited edition was another diversion to the gourmand tend of YSL. I was only pernitted a sample once years ago. This one was beautiful as it was strange. Of all gourmands, this held the most floral notes. I am talking those rich and redolent YSL florals. It was avant garde, even for YSL.

In the midst of the citrus notes and flowers is a lot of fruit. Neroli harmonizes well here with the sunny character. There is a strange green note that must be the tomato leaves. Its surprising. I didnt get the tomato note, yet I am sure its there amid all the vegetation. Its refreshing and mature.

There was nothing heavy about it and it was a perfect summer edition. It reminded me of Atlantis. It has passed into legend as well...

When I bought it in London in 2000, I was told it was limited edition. Private collectors might be the few people still with a bottle. Good luck!

First off, I hold YSL in very high regard. However, there are $1 hairsprays that smell better this. From the second I put it it on all I wanted was for it to end. Seriously, dreadfully bad.

So good.
So short-lived.
So impossible to find.
Vice/Versa.
It was girly/womanly,
sparkling like a miracle/approachable like an orange trees garden,
for daywear/nightwear.

Alice in wonderland indeed.
