RIVE GAUCHE by YVES SAINT LAURENT 100ml

RIVE GAUCHE by YVES SAINT LAURENT 100ml Rive Gauche by Yves Saint Laurent is a Floral Aldehyde fragrance for women. Rive Gauche was launched in 1971.

Rive Gauche was created in 1970 by perfumer Michel Hy. Its name – ‘Left Bank’- stands for the left side of the river Seine, an intellectual, hip and slightly more bohemian side of Paris, where YSL boutique is situated. Rive Gauche is a fragrance for free and independent women, a gracious inhabitant of the city who likes the sun and wind more than anything but who is also quintessentially metropolitan.
The well-known and much loved composition of floral aldehydes was enriched in 2000s with clear woody and aromatic accords. The aldehyde note is now surrounded by pelargonium and rose absolute, which somewhat softens the sharp metal note of the original composition, ending with a comfortable combination of oak moss, vetiver, musk and balsamic notes.

And yet those changes leave the fragrance very recognizable – all the way to the arty flacon. It is a great addition to any perfume lover’s collection due to its true versatility and impeccable, ‘very French’ taste. YSL Rive Gauche Eau de Toilette comes in a charming blue bottle with silver and black detailing. A great fragrance for young, free spirited and independent women.

Middle notes: Rose, iris, Geranium, Ylang-Ylang, Lily-of-the-Valley, Jasmine, Magnolia and Gardenia

ALL PERFUMES ARE FAR FROM EQUAL

We offer NZ’s best prices for a discerning market. Enjoy prices that are a cut above bargain basement and well below department stores. Our fragrances are the genuine article, but it is the integrity or quality of the perfume that matters. There are many reasons why perfumes spoil, often well before they are purchased by the consumer. Heat is the biggest culprit (that we term baked, like wine).

FROM WHOLESALER TO RETAILER

Many perfume discounters use sea freight for a month or so without climate control in a metal container ( New York to Auckland) plus however long they sit on the dock. At Designer Direct we only use Air Freight. Costly but your nose will love you.

CLIMATE CONTROL

The cheaper the fragrance, the less of a bargain you’re getting, and the more likely it was stored with a lack of climate-controlled warehousing. Both our NZ stores where we ship orders from have climate control.
