Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent
Key Notes of Mon Paris
What Does Mon Paris Smell Like
Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent starts with a playful punch of sweetness, thanks to the fresh strawberries and ripe raspberries meeting your senses right away. You'll notice a slight undercurrent of Calabrian bergamot, adding an unexpected citrusy twist that cuts through the initial sweetness.
As you delve deeper into the scent, floral notes begin to emerge. The soft, powdery aroma of peony steps forward, blending wonderfully with the exotic warmth of Chinese jasmine. A distinct note of Jasmine sambac absolute gives the fragrance a slightly green, tea-like quality, while Datura adds a touch of mystery with its rich, slightly narcotic scent.
The base of the fragrance is where the earthy tones come to life. Indonesian patchouli lends a woody, slightly minty aroma, complemented by the smooth, warm sweetness of Ambrox. A second layer of patchouly from Guatemala works to underscore these earthy notes, adding depth and complexity. Finally, a hint of white musk rounds out the scent, leaving a clean, slightly creamy aroma that lingers on the skin.
As a whole, Mon Paris presents a fragrant journey from the sweetness of berries to the romance of blooming flowers, before settling into a comforting, earthy base.
