About This Product

La Vie en Rose: Paris Perfume: c.1983
Taking a cue from YSL himself, I was as much inspired by the dress (The Paris Bow Dress) as by the original design of the 1983 perfume itself. YSL allowed himself to be inspired by the perfume to create the dress… La Vie en Rose is an expanded version of the original rose, violet, aldehydic perfume with added sparkling notes to suggest a gloriously youthful exuberance and a champagne fete along a Springtime Champs Elysees.

*EdP sample vials are 1/2 filled.

    This is a beautiful fragrance that makes me think of what mainstream perfumery used to be like a few decades ago, when you could find quality fragrances in the department stores, and before everything got cheapened and reformulated to death. I have often lamented the sad state of mainstream perfumery, and the glut of fragrances that seem to contain not one single natural ingredient. On the other hand, all-natural scents often lack longevity and sillage, and simply feel too dense, as if all the notes are pressed together. I find that a judicious balance of synthetics and naturals often works best, with naturals for richness and synthetics for lift and longevity, and this perfume gets it just about perfect. It is supposed to be inspired by YSL Paris. I do not have a vintage sample of Paris at hand, but I have tried the current version of Paris, and La Vie en Rose is far superior, much richer smoother, and less strident. Sillage is moderate and lasting power is quite good. I have perfume-eating skin and many scents fade out in a couple of hours on my skin. This one, however, was still discernible after six hours.
