Oh la la! What is it about Paris and YSL which gives my butterflies?! YSL is such a love brand for me and Paris, well, it just doesn’t get much better does it!? The latest fragrance to be released is Mon Paris, inspired by the city of lovers and the love affair with both the city and the man. Romantic right!? Firstly, shout out to the bottle which is Pinterest-perfect with it’s soft pink juicy framed with a cut crystal style glass and simple black tulle bottle. So pretty! As for the perfume itself, well it’s flirty and fabulous, just as you might expect! It reminds me a little of when Gossip Girl went to Paris, Blair Waldorf roaming around the city in her cute outfits, looking pristine and adorably chic. The fragrance opens with a sparkling top note of delicious fresh raspberries, blackberry, bergamot and slightly spicy pink pepper, it’s girly and fun, but once the heart is revealed, there is a warm floral heart filled with summery orange blossom, jasmine and, would you believe, Blair’s favourite flower, Peony! As for the base, it’s warm, sensual and slightly earthy with notes of patchouli, white musk, amber and cashmere. In the same way that I adore Paris, but I don’t want to move there, I love Mon Paris, but it’s perhaps a little too flirty for my every day wear, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t love to hop on the Eurostar and enjoy it every once in a while!
