This Perfume Is The Ultimate Summer Fragrance

Spritzing on perfume for me is a part of getting dressed, and my perfume “wardrobe” is almost as big as my clothing wardrobe. If you were to look at my collection of perfumes, you would see a total pattern: bottle after bottle of scents that are unique, lovely and ultimately feminine. That’s just me…but I recognize that perfume is like art: completely subjective.

That being said, YSL’s newest release – Mon Paris Eau de Parfum is a crowd pleaser.

YSL Mon Paris – Summer In A Bottle

YSL Mon Paris is easy to wear thanks to its sweet and fruity freshness. Everything about this perfume is pretty, from its beautiful and feminine packaging (the sweet little tulle bow!) down to the perfume’s lovely shade of pink.

Those who love sweet and feminine fragrances will love Mon Paris with its top notes of strawberry, raspberry and bergamot. Middle notes include orange flower, jasmin blanc and white peony. The perfume finishes off with two of my favourite scents: white musk and patchouli.

While this fragrance is very feminine, it has some serious lasting power. I will spray some on in the morning and it delights my olfactory sense all the live long day.

YSL Mon Paris will take up a permanent spot in my perfume tray…I mean, even the bottle itself is gorgeous! You can nab a bottle of your own by visiting www.yslbeauty.ca. Mon Paris is offered in 10ml, 30ml, 50ml, 90ml and 150ml bottles. The bottle shown is 90ml and retails for $164.

    This is a beautiful perfume bottle. It seems like it smells lovely too. I love collecting my used perfume bottles and keep them as decor because they are all so beautiful and feminine.

      Hi Marshalee! I went to a market in Paris that specialized in antiques. You should have seen the vintage perfume bottles they had. There were bottles from eahc decade, all the way back from the turn of the 20th century. They were so beautiful, including the atomizers (old timey perfume bottles with that pump you have to squeeze). This fragrance is gorgeous. Love it.
