Through its profound devotion to evocative cinema, indulgent cuisine, timeless couture and majestic architecture, Paris has certainly earned its moniker as “the city of love”. It’s little surprise then that Yves Saint Laurent took the French capital as his own personal muse. In 1983 he gifted the world Paris - a fragrance built around a bouquet of roses and inspired by the city and its elegant, romantic, vivacious inhabitants. Today the journey continues with YSL Mon Paris, a collection for the fiery, bold and impassioned.

There is so much to consider when selecting your personal fragrance - which notes and aromas best match your style? How will the fragrance blend with your skin’s scent? Will you spritz daily to make every day an occasion, or reserve it for your most exciting occasions? This article will guide you through the YSL Mon Paris collection, providing techniques for application and guidance on which YSL Mon Paris Perfume is best for a variety of occasions.

What does Mon Paris by YSL smell like?

The YSL Mon Paris collection is an invitation to experience Paris, conjuring the essence of everything the city embodies: burning passion and fierce femininity. Each fragrance in the collection features a masterful blend of key aromas. Its perfume notes include a sweet, fruity nectar which flows elegantly into a blooming floral heart, and lying at each base is the warmth invitation of musk and patchouli. The end result? A cocktail evoking rebellion, desire and style.

When applying, remember that there are several key techniques for making your YSL Mon Paris perfume:

1. Spritz onto freshly cleansed skin that has been moisturised with a neutral-smelling body cream.

2. Apply the scent to your pulse points: wrists, neck, behind your knees and inside your elbows.

3. Spritz your clothes and lightly mist your hair.

4. Refrain from rubbing your wrists together, as this can disrupt the fragrance profile.

5. Store your YSL Mon Paris perfume somewhere cool, dark and dry.
