Rive Gauche Reviews

A classic scent revered by sophisticated women since its introduction in 1971, Rive Gauche, by Yves St Laurent, is the quintessential fragrance for casual occasions. Impeccably French, Rive Gauche is a warm, cosmopolitan scent characterized by floral and woody notes. You can almost feel the scarf around your neck and the beret angled on your head when you wear this fragrance. Elegant and complex, Rive Gauche is a perfect choice for the woman who is old enough to know exactly what she wants, and exactly how to get it.

Review of Rive Gauche

I have worn this since it was first introduced with some gaps through the years, but I always come back. I get compliments from both men and women as it manages to not offend anyone's nose. Hopefully YSL will never sell or change the formula because it is a classic and a winner.

Review of Rive Gauche

I've worn Rive Gauche for over 40 years. I have tried others, but all fail in comparison. It is noticed every time I wear it, and is my signature scent, my only scent. Sensual, yes. Thank you, Yves St. Laurent.

Review of Rive Gauche

I have always loved this from when it first came out....I was a teenager and fell in love with it!! Rive Gauche has changed over the years and I don't like how it smells now, compared to when it first came out. Wish I could buy the original scent once again.......I really miss the softness of it's original smell. Please please make a come back with the original.
