Rive Gauche 

A versatile and impeccable scent, very French

Yves Saint Laurent's floral fragrance is made of green notes, aldehydes, bergamot, honeysuckle, peach and lemon (top notes). While floral heart notes unify iris, roses, geranium, ylang-ylang, lily-of-the-valley, jasmine, gardenia and magnolia. The base notes are comforting and softening (musk, Tahitian vetiver, oakmoss, tonka bean, sandalwood and amber).

Its name is translated as "left bank", the slightly more hip, bohemian and intellectual left side of river Seine in Paris. As its name conveys, this perfume is created for independent women with a free mind and love for the French metropolitan.

Since 2000 the iconic scent is enriched and softened by rose absolute and pelargonium with clear aromatic and woody accords. Rive gauche is indeed a timeless treasure, also when it comes to perfume bottle design itself.
