I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


This bold and lively fragrance was designed like a floral bouquet. Its top note soars with notes of bergamot, lemon and aldehydes.Then it revealss a very floral middle note evolving around gardenia, honeysuckle, jasmine and rose.The woody end note blends sandalwood, vetiver and oak moss.


The Rive Gauche woman is a city-dweller who likes the sun and the wind above anything else. She has a good sense of humor and a strong, no-nonsense personality. She's independent and shows a conquering mind.


Layered Royal blue, black and aluminum stripes provide Rive Gauche with a shockproof metal jacket.Yves Saint Laurent designed a handy and modern bottle similar to aerosol can.

    Un parfum emblématique, un joyau qui semble être sur la sellette. Même reformulé, il est bien mieux qu'un Black Opium ou autre...

    Il a remplacé L'Air du temps que je trouvais "fade" à l'époque. Il a accompagné ma liberté retrouvée. Je l'ai beaucoup aimé. Et je m'en suis lassée. Excellent dans les années 80.

    Magnifico como todo lo que creo el genio YSL, por desgracia desde 2008 no son ni su sombra, se a pasado de la pasión y la calidad tanto en contenido como en continente, a la venta a cualquier precio, siempre me repito pero lo que termina en manos de LOREAL... SE PUDRE.

    Originally I was not a fan. I would like to try this again and see if my taste has changed.
