Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne

20 Mar

…off the beaten berry path, across the train tracks and over to the electrical plant. Scandalous! Don’t get caught. See the huge sign on the barbed-wire fence that reads NO TRESPASSING? That means YOU, girly.

Parisienne is blackberry candy on the inhale, truck exhaust on the exhale…tangy purple gourmet lollipop on the inhale, asphalt and plastic casing on the exhale…

Wait, am I HUFFING this fragrance in an attempt to figure out what it smells like!? Does that mean I like it, or that something about it is oddly compelling, likes and dislikes aside…

There is a soapy dark chemical shadow in the background of this bright purple sweet and sour candy berry fragrance.

It’s like Strawberry Shortcake’s questionable older cousin: Blackberry Tail Pipe.

I think there is something surprisingly alluring about Parisienne. It has that synthetic purple berry “freshness” that actually goes well with the surrounding sooty chemicals and powder.

This projects a good distance, especially in warmer weather, so it’s probably best for outdoor activities and days when you will be doing a lot of traveling instead of sitting in one place for hours on end. Not something you want to stew in. Better to get wafts of it as you go about your day. It lasts straight through the day and into the evening.

When the berries eventually fade, cold florals take their place as the powder and shadowy industrial notes carry on.

Blackberry Candy *Plus*.
