Yves Saint Laurent Premieres Roses Re-Issued

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Paris perfume by Yves Saint Laurent, the French brand is re-issuing a limited edition version of Paris from spring/summer 2011 called Premières Roses. 

For those who had not been quick to sample it, the Paris Premières Roses flanker is the epitome of spring and an homage to the Centifolia rose (rose de Mai). The fragrance plays with delicate fragrance notes of rose, lighter, a little more powdery and softer than those in the heart of the original Paris perfume.

The top notes are comprised of rose and lily-of-the-valley; middle notes include African orange flower, violet and peony; the base notes revolve around musk and sandalwood. Rose is big this spring, in youthful takes more than ever before, and this tried & true offering is among the most wearable.

The 2013 edition by Yves Saint Laurent differentiates in the packaging, with a more brightly colored box, so as to differentiate from the previous 2011 edition. This is again a limited edition, so if you liked it before, you know what to do.

  1. I purchased this version last spring, I think at the Paris CDG Duty Free. I prefer this over the original Paris, which no doubt is a classic but smells a little heavy on me. Perfect spring scent!
