A Floral Love Affair: The Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris

Inspired by the city of love – Paris, this scent was created to capture the feeling of romance, love and desire. Since its release in 2016, the alluringly floral scent of the Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris has since inspired an additional two floral scents – the Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Couture and the Mon Paris Intensement. Together, these scents demonstrate the power of scent in evoking emotion – with just one spritz captivating and transferring you to the fields of France.

The Mon Paris

YSL’s original Mon Paris fragrance was created by perfumers Olivier Cresp, Harry Fremont and Dora Baghriche. Using a combination of fruits and florals, the perfume opens with a sweet blend of Calabria bergamot, strawberry, raspberry and pear before softening into a seducing floral mix of peony, Chinese jasmine and orange blossom.

Closing with an airy crystal white musk, ambroxan and combination of Indonesian and Guatemalan patchouli, the fragrance offers a chypre signature base. Inspired by the modern allure and the edgy couture style of the Yves Saint Laurent woman, the black lavallire unveils the elegance of a multifaceted bottle.

Mon Paris Couture 

Feel the sparkling rush of love vertigo with Mon Paris Couture, the vertiginous fragrance of Yves Saint Laurent. Mon Paris Couture Eau de Parfum was released in 2018 as the more serious version of the original Mon Paris. Still evoking a dizzying sense of love, Mon Paris Couture is about a feeling and attitude that makes ordinary moments seem special. While retaining much of the original composition, the perfume contains the additions of datura, rosebud and grapefruit. The only other difference between the two fragrances is that the black ribbon is exchanged for a sweet spotted one.

Mon Paris Intensement

The new Mon Paris Intensement shouts “Je t’aime” with a precious absolute of Centifolia Rose at heart. It is intense but never dark. Released in 2020, Mon Paris Intensement is the latest release in the Mon Paris fragrance line. With a sensual rose heart and a combination of black currant and white musk, this fragrance offers a deeper and more passionate take on the original fragrance. Compared to the previous two bottles, the Mon Paris Intensement features a pretty Lavalliere bow with an intense fuchsia veil that’s inspired by the latest designs of Saint Laurent couture.
