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 also have been wearing this perfume since I was around 16 years of age. I love it... I do wear other perfumes, such as Coco Chanel, and Madmoselle, Armani Code, Anais, Anais, Poison etc but the minute I run out of Rive - I SIMPLY MUST get some more.. It now still smells gorgeous to me and I do have people asking me what I'm wearing, Its a light, sexy fragrance... I loved it then I love it now. I wear perfume like we wear clothes - whatever suits my mood etc.. I believe this perfume is 5 star all the way for me!

Review of Rive Gauche

I LOVE Rive Gauche - I wore it in the 70's then went to Opium but now I have returned to this amazing scent that I now love much more than Opium. I hope you never change this formula. My only beef is it is very expensive and not everyone carries it so sometimes a challenge to find. It must still be a hit or it would be gone by now. Thanks,

Review of Rive Gauche

I'm now in my 50s .....I wore this fragrance when I used to work in my teenage years. Found it again a few years ago via your site....and love it. Hope this original version comes back. Here in Australia it's seldom I can find it. Love it love it love it.... And my boyfriend loves it when I wear it.

Review of Rive Gauche

I've been wearing Rive Gauche since it was first introduced. Although I sometimes wear one other fragrance, I always go back to Rive Gauche--so you can imagine how disappointed I was to discover that it's out of stock! Also, I've heard that the formula has changed--and not for the better. I hope that your company carries the original formula!

Review of Rive Gauche

I have been wearing Rive Gauche since 1971. I was so happy to find it on this web site. Everywhere I've been around the world someone always stops me and says " what are you wearing? I can't wait until you get more in stock because I can't imagine wearing any other fragrance. My grandkids love it because it reminds them of "Granny". One time when I hadn't seen my grandaughter in a long time, when she kissed me she said " oh Granny, you still smell the same".......
