Every Spring since 2002, Yves Saint Laurent launches a new limited edition version of their longtime favorite scent YSL Paris as a tribute to the capital of love. The latest fragrance to join this group is called YSL Paris Jardins Romantiques, $50.
Jardins Romantiques is intended to capture the first scents of Spring in a Parisian garden. It is a fresh mix of: mandarin, rose, lilac, violet, newly cut grass and a hint of sandalwood musk as a hearty base note.
The packaging is quite exquisite too. The bottle resembles a rose growing amidst piquant notes of fresh grass. The fragrance itself dons a delicate shade of pale green and the bottle cap is a glossy, light pink. There are also finely drawn beautiful rose corollas on the bottle and lightly silhouetted trees in the background.
This is an extremely elegant and feminine scent that evokes dreams of sitting in a garden in Paris in the springtime, thinking of romance, adventure and emotion. This fragrance will be available at the beginning of April. I can't wait!
