Mon Paris <em>l’amour fou</em>

Mon Paris l’amour fou

Capturing the spirit of an intense love affair inspired by the city lovers of Paris, YSL introduces their latest fragrance,
MON PARIS – “My Paris”.

Lose yourself in l’amour fou (crazy love). Between passion and freedom,
MON PARIS is the new fragrance for the burning lovers who live and love madly.

One of my favourite YSL Fragrances has got to be YSL Parisienne. It’s one of my beloved fragrances that went bye-bye when we moved from Durban to Jozi. There are still days when I long for it. But I’m one of “those girls”. You know the type *insert perfume hoarder emoji here*, when  you want a fragrance, but then wonder if you really NEED it all that badly because you’ve had it and loved it before, and maybe it’s time to try something new?

I don’t know, maybe I’m alone with this?

I was so excited for the YSL MON PARIS launch. Although different in both looks and scent to the Parisienne scent, it’s still got that very Paris thing going on. I knew I would love it. And I do!

I do, I do, I do!

Crisp as a smoking jacket, as flowing as a pussy-bow blouse, the luminous Mon Paris is a precise balancing act between sex and sensuality that inverts the classic chypre fragrance structure. An exercise in fluidity and control, it is as spell-binding and eclectic as the force of love that inspires it.

YSL MON PARIS The Notes

The top notes give you a blast of joyfulness with a wide variety of fruity, zesty and airy aqueous notes. Think Strawberry, Raspberry, Pear, Calabrian Bergamot, Calone, Orange and Tangerine. For me the strongest profile was the strawberry note – the kind you get when you bite into a fresh, perfectly ripe strawberry.

The middle notes have a sweet, narcotic effect with white Datura flowers, Peony, Orange Blossom and a double dose of Jasmine with the inclusion of Jasmine Sambac and Chinese Jasmine.

And finally, the dry down notes comprise of glorious cedar and musk with a double dose of Patchouil. The base note breakdown for YSL MON PARIS is Indonesian Patchouli Leaf, White Musk, Ambroxan, Patchouli, Cedar, Moss and Vanilla.

Overall, a beautiful fragrance that’s perfect for your next Summer scent!

If you like fragrances like Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, Giorgio Armani Say Si and Viktor and Rolf Bon Bon, chances are you’ll fall in love with MON PARIS.
