Created by Oliver Cresp, Dora Baghriche and Harry Fremont, the top notes of the composition depict the beginning of love, the middle notes describe the burning love, while the base notes reflect the feeling of infatuation portrayed as romantic love pleasure.

Mon Paris Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent is the timeless fragrance of a free and passionate woman. A white chypre with challenging sensuality. Let yourself be captivated by the vertigo of Crazy Love.

The sweetness of red fruit (strawberry and raspberry) combined with the rich, fruity notes of pears and juicy citruses (orange, mandarin, and bergamot) are cooled by the Calone molecule, which reproduces light, watery, and airy aromas with hints of watermelon in the opening of the composition.

Datura flower dominates the heart’s white bouquet combined of peonies, orange blossom, and Chinese and Sambac jasmine, while the base creates the rich blend of patchouli heart, Indonesian patchouli leaves, white musk, ambroxan, cedar, moss, and vanilla, intensifying its chypre character.


For this collector edition the iconic Mon Paris Eau de Parfum liquid has been bundled in a limited couture and Parisian edition. The flacon is decorated with dazzling sequins and an out-sized lavaliere like the Parisian icon: the Eiffel Tower.

Yves Saint Laurent’s Mon Paris Collector Edition is available as a 50ml Eau de Parfum from June in a limited edition at selected stores wrldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Yves Saint Laurent.
