Rive Gauche, a YSL fragrance with a very couture spirit
Before being a perfume, Rive Gauche above all refers to a ready-to-wear collection designed by the Yves Saint-Laurent house. Rive Gauche meant at the time a more accessible and dynamic line than the brand’s Haute Couture collection. This clothing collection made its appearance in 1966, expressing the quintessence of modernity in Yves Saint-Laurent’s wardrobe.
Like this, the Rive Gauche perfume, designed in 1971 , portrays us the portrait of active women, both feminine, daring and endowed with unmatched self-confidence. Rive Gauche has captured all the Parisian chic of the 70s. It has been supporting dynamic women for several generations, and turns out to be as radiant as it is deceptively relaxed. Despite its great age, Rive Gauche thus remains a perfume endowed with astonishing modernity.
The fresh and floral breath of Rive Gauche by Yves Saint Laurent
On the olfactory level, Rive Gauche immediately gives a feeling of joie de vivre. This playful fragrance stimulates the woman who wears it on a daily basis. Its flight is as lively as it is surprising.
Rive Gauche YSL sets off on a blend of citrus fruits and aldehyde. Bergamot and lemon give it exceptional freshness. Green notes then join in its recipe and paves the way for a more floral heart. The femininity of Rive Gauche reappears in an alliance of gardenia, rose, jasmine and honeysuckle. Its background ultimately affirms the more pronounced personality of women. Its woody breath blends oak moss, sandalwood and vetiver. Rive Gauche is presented to us in a very elongated bottle striped in blue, silver and black. Again, this is its original visual: a metallic glass column that remains very modern to this day.
