I purchased this little perfume as a gift to me, from me, of course. I fancied a new perfume because I have had the ones I have currently got for a while now and wanted to shake things up a bit. I decided to go for 'Yves Saint Laurent' or YSL because I do not have any of their products and I wanted to try something of theirs out, as they are meant to be pretty decent after all.
I purchased this from the perfume shop for around £25.00, I think, for 50ml bottle. This is a pretty decent offer as many perfumes of high brands are of this price so I really did not expect any less than that.
Now the bottle itself is plain but very pretty. I particularly like the 'YSL' logo on it as it just stands out and makes your perfume collection shine! It is easy to apply due to the simple rectangular shape - a classic design that never fails.
The scent of this perfume is very clean and fresh. It is slightly floral, but with some spice, and very rich in its smell, but not in an overpowering way. I think this scent is perfect for evenings due to its richness.
The perfume itself is very durable and gets better throughout the day. In my opinion, this is definitely why you should purchase eau de parfum, rather than the toilette, as you do not need to keep reapplying it throughout the day, which can get very annoying.
