Yves Saint Laurent have launched their latest iteration of Parisienne edp initially introduced in 2009 with muse Kate Moss. The fourth installment in the franchise is called Parisienne L'Essentiel and is fronted by French actress Marine Vacth. Each time, the brand has taken the original formula and attempted to insert it into a new fragrance family. It comes after the eau de parfum (woody-floral), eau de toilette (fruity-floral) and Parisienne à l'Extrême (floral chypre), now being billed as an ambery floriental...
The flacon resembling an obsidian stone undergoing a metamorphosis in purpley amethyst from the bottom up is the reverse pattern of that of Parisienne à L'Extrême which is clearer at the top and darker in the bottom.
Each perfume variation is also illustrating a different mood: the edt is its most sparkling and freshest inspiration; the eau de parfum is its most subversive and passionate self; Parisienne à l'Extrême is its most carnal and intoxicating declension; and finally, Parisienne L'Essentiel is said to be its most sensual and sophisticate version.
Parisienne L'Essentiel eau de parfum was built to open on top notes featuring a vinyle accord, pink peppercorn and blackberry. The heart rests on Damascan rose, an iris accord, and Sambac jasmine. The anchoring notes are a white leather accord, tonka bean and musk.
Prices: 60€ and 84,90€ for 30 ml and 50 ml.
