Little Luxury: YSL Mon Paris

Last week was a bit down week for me in terms of health. I was feeling very poorly. Long hours of fasting were getting me. However, it was pleasantly bright week when it came to post deliveries. I got my most awaited post but before that I received an unexpected delivery.

When I open the packet, I flipped out completely with excitement. Because inside was black bag with gold YSL written on it, containing this little bottle of YSL newly launched perfume Mon Paris.

Mon Paris is inspired by Paris and Parisian love which is intense, ready to take risk and free from all obstacles.

Mon Paris is very fruity and floral perfume and the opening note are of strawberry and raspberry. It smells like sweet candy shop but it is not girly at all. It quickly changes into very sensual and seductive scent with the middle floral notes. The perfume settles with very sophisticated notes of white musk and patchouli notes.

When I first sprayed it on my wrist, I instantly felt the Datura flower note. I could sense it among all the common notes of orange blossom, jasmine and pears, but was not sure what it was until I read about it on YSL website. Datura makes Mon Paris very special and gives this perfume a whole new life.

Mon Paris is very grown up perfume. It is sensual, seductive but very lively. It is not sickly sweet like teenage fragrances or granny’s kind of strong floral fragrance. It is just right in the middle. It is very fresh and mood lifting perfume.

The bottle of the Mon Paris is also very graphic. A black leather tie and black lavaliere with gold YSL bar compliment the perfume beautifully. It’s edgy yet sophisticated.   The actual perfume is in light pink colour. This is a perfect bottle to display on vanity.

I am very picky when it comes to fragrances.  However, I will must say, I found myself a new favourite after J’adore. And I don’t such things lightly. Because last year I turned down the offer of Black opium from YSL to be gifted to me due to very strong warm Vanilla note.

If you trust my reviews, I will insist to sniff at least once this perfume, I am sure you will love it. <3
