Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche - fragrance details

An avant-garde perfume with notes of bergamot, rose, vetiver and musk. Inspired by the French avant-garde, the classic fragrance of Rive Gauche was designed by Yves Saint Laurent to show in scent the independent and unpredictable spirit of YSL Rive Gauche Pret-a-Porter. First, rose with bright bergamot highlights calls freshness to mind, but this floral can't hide its capriciousness. An unexpected middle arises: oakmoss, vetiver and musk quickly take over, setting up the deeply quixotic finish. In the iconic column-inspired flacon of cobalt blue glass and metal.
