Yves St. Laurent Nu

$4.00

YSL Nu is described as dark and moody, but also radiant and elegant. Filled with contrasts.
 
I knew I would love YSL NU, but I didn’t have clear expectations as to how it would actually smell. Would it smell like Black Cashmere, or Serge Noire, both incense/spicy/woody scents? Nothing terrifically different in the Nu note list, except perhaps white orchid, and I’ve no idea how a white orchid should smell. I have to admit I absolutely was not prepared for this spectacular scent.

Kouros

$4.00

 
Luca Turin gives Kouros a five-star rating in Perfumes: the A-Z guide.  Created in 1981 by Pierre Bourdon, he describes it as a work of genius.
 
Warning: Kouros is a powerhouse, therefore a single modest spritz is all that’s required. More than one spritz could be considered grounds for assault. But oh, that single spritz is pure genius…in fact, Kouros won a FIFI award in 1982 for Best Men’s fragrance.

Paris Roses Enchantées

$6.00

In 1983 by Yves Saint Laurent launched Paris perfume. It was his ode to the city he loved. Paris is a real beauty with a fruity opening, lush rose at the heart softened with violet and BIG, just like everything about the 80’s was. For a long time it seemed like everyone was wearing it.

$6.00

Rive Gauche

$4.00

Created in 1970 for Yves St. Laurent by Jacques Polge and Michel Hy, Rive Gauche was designed for the independent and free-spirited woman – the boho/chic dressed women who hung out on the Left Bank in 70’s Paris. No perfume captures that time better than Rive Gauche. This classic scent has become the very definition of a floral aldehyde.
