Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne (2009): Fronted by Kate Moss, Composed by Grojsman & Labbe {New Perfume}

What started as an internet saga tracking down some of the bits and pieces of news that came to see the light of day around the upcoming Parisienne by Yves Saint Laurent, has now become more widely distributed news.

The perfume reportedly incorporates an urban olfactory edge with notes of vinyl and gloss in the top to refer to nail polish and the scent of cosmetics, but also the perfume rendition of a metallic stiletto heel on asphalt....

The perfume was composed by Sophia Grojsman and Sophie Labbé. Grojsman is the author of the celebrated Paris by YSL as well as of numerous international masterpieces and bestsellers. Sophie Labbé is the creator of Pure White Linen and of the exquisite Cologne 68 by Guerlain, amongst others.

Other notes include cranberry, Damascus rose, delicate violet, fresh peony, patchouli, vetiver, musk and sandalwood.

  1. Hi Marie,

    sorry I was in vacation & just saw this, well I am so glad that Sophia Grojsman is involved in this, she is the best one to understand the essence of YSL culture.
    she is my favorite nose & I am still dreaming about a men fragrance composed by her.

    well back to Kate Moss & the ad. honestly i prefer the papratzi images rather than the finnished one, they are more natural & romantic..
    & since the name is Parisienne then the moder should be Parisienne too, as Lucie de la Falaise, my all time favorite face of PARIS in the 90's:

    have a nice day...


    • Hi Taz,

      I think that there is this idea that a "parisienne" is a woman who abide by a certain set of values and therefore can be such even if not born and bred in Paris. Isn't Lucie de la Falaise based in New York city now btw?

      I agree that L de la F embodies well a classic chic and fashionable idea of the mythical parisienne. Kate Moss is the channel-crossing rock and roll type of parisienne (by adoption). The brand probably did not want to appear too provincial in using such a great name for a fragrance, I am assuming.
