The Perfumed Dandy’s Scent Today…… Paris by Yves Saint Laurent

Boulevards, brasseries, bois, des arts, boutiques…

That seemingly inescapable erection.

How could one hope to capture a city as erotic, stylish, cultured and sadistic in a simple scent?

Say it with flowers!

That seems to have been Saint Laurent’s response: a rose large enough to fill the Louvre attended to by practically every other bloom in creation.

Does it, can it, work!?!

Following its selection by your good selves in yesterday’s snap vote, The Perfumed Dandy will now take a few days to deliberate and cogitate the merits and mischiefs of this fragrance fair or foul and will, in due course, provide his report on relations with the new discovery by means of a scented letter.

Another opportunity to place a new perfume on The Dandy‘s skin will arise with the next instalment of The Perfumed Dandy’s Hit Parade.

In the meantime if you would like to thrust forward a fragrance for future fame on The Hit Parade simply visit ‘Suggest and old scent or recommend a new one’ and leave your suggestion there.

Have an especially fragrant day.

Yours ever

The Perfumed Dandy.

  1. That got a chuckle out of me, “…that seemingly inescapable…” The fragrance I remember well because I wore it in college, I thought it was gorgeous then, but I was also fond of burying my nose in roses, jasmine, freesia and lilies. My scent after that was Antonia’s flowers. Now…. well, I’m a lot older and I’ll wait to see what you think of it.

    I’m also looking forward to your review of this one. I hope you’re wearing the old version.

    I feel affection for it, not sure I’d wear it now! Look forward to the review..

    Hooray! So glad you chose this one- you’ve inspired me to to dig out my vintage bottle and wear it tomorrow. Now, where are those shoulder pads….

  5. A man in ‘Paris’? I can hardly imagine it. Watch out for that nasty musk in the base…
