This is so beautiful. Yves Saint Laurents fragrance under his supervision was something of elegance and withstood the test of time. I love vintage fragrances but I was in no hurry to get this. This was my first perfume ever. It is also very much loved & wore also by the beautiful Joanna Lumley,& like my Manageress Bernie,she always is immaculate to!! So much so that I even wore Rive Gauche on my Wedding Day,& my Husband always makes sure im never without it as he also adores it on me too!! 13 reviews of Rive Gauche "I'd like to give this place 5 stars, but unfortunately I didn't get the chance to eat while here, so I don't feel like I can give it 5 stars until I do. Something has happened to the composition- I have a client who attends my surgery who wears this and I've always loved it as a classic feminine fragrance. Do you love it sweet and soft? OH MY GOODNESS! I get it, we all love to cuddle with nostalgia and familiarity. It is just as amazing as I hoped it would be. This perfume is a bit glamorous, very classy. The parfum didn't have the metallic aldehydic part, it was all a comforting gorgeous floral. Explore menu, see photos and read 107 reviews: "Alles perfekt. 19 substitute. I know rivers of ink have been written (and of tears shed) for this forever lost jewel which YSL Rive Gauche used to be, for this bloody murder that was committed, like many others were, often being the victim all those beautiful classic aldehydes whose only crime was to have oakmoss in their formulation. I totally adore adore the bottle. 15 were here. This was my first *real* perfume. Even with vintage bottles of No.5 and Diorissimo, she always comes back to this. Am I too off here? The silage and longevity are insane! Longevity and silage are moderate on my skin, but on clothes it lasts forever. I went to Harrods to try to find it but it wasn't available at the time. So do I. I love this perfume. Read the article of Alfred. Of course this woodsy,oak moss, musk incense, hint of lily fragrance was alien and mysterious to their olfactory senses. I also recall the slew of frags it inspired, ...Revlon Charlie, Calandre (which predated it, but became more popular at the time) and others. Rive gauche is now horrible stinky stuff to avoid! It is an icon with title Down Triangle. The bottle is round, a tin, with blue black and silver stripes with no sticker. It was Rive Gauche that first got me interested in perfume, at the time I thought it was a stunning perfume, it’s ok but not something I would wear today. that's another review! is there anybody out there that can recommend a similar "in the same family" scent to me? I read from Luca Turin that RG has been ruined by reforms, and Calandre is the much better perfume. A fantasy! You can almost feel the scarf around your neck and the beret angled on your head when you wear this fragrance. There's nothing prissy, girly, or gaga gooey about it but it is still a distinctly feminine, tasteful, and beautiful smell. To me it has a clean, soft but prominent scent that is sorta old fashion. Love the name, love the bottle, love the scent. My mum says out of all the perfumes I’ve ever tried that this one suits me the best, so perhaps it’s a skin chemistry factor. Find a variety. To me this perfume runs along the same lines as Chanel 19, Crysalle, Eau Du Sud, anything clean and fresh perfect for overbearing summer weather. I recently procured a vintage mini of this. I repurchased it in 2017, and it was just as good. Opening notes are warmly and boyantly citrusy but not specific. I have always been more of an oriental floral, or floral fruity gourmand, vanilla perfume lover. I had a love hate relationship with this fragrance. Classic and beautiful - must have again. Very feminine, albeit old-fashioned. It is not spicy, delicately floral - divine! The current market of fragrances being saturated with sickly, candy sweet florals. It's a blunt and overpowering scent akin to being smacked in the face with an anvil. I was so thankful to receive a small vintage one to try. The oak settles in nicely, and as in all of Yves Saint Laurent’s best perfumes, the rose note offers a lovely peppery accord. In the last two years, I've bought twice this fragrance and twice, I was disappointed. So powdery in the drydown. I have loved this perfume all my scented life and it wins my all-time favourite award, hands down, from the first lemon/lily of the valley twang of metallic crispness all the way down through the other florals, maybe with a sherberty whiff of pink grapefruit, and woody amber-ness. With the aldehydic florals, I'm never quite sure just what it is I'm smelling. I miss it so much, and wish I could find it again! However, I think if there was an acceptable reason why the old formula must have been changed, the problem is not with the new fragrance itself- that is beautiful on it's own, in my opinion -. Rive Gauche pour Homme was launched in 2003. I'm super late to the RG game. I can't vouch for previous formulations but this one is WOW! I felt so grown up and so trendy and loved the smell and the bottle.Before I had my own bottle a lady I worked with would wear this to work and she told me to spray it lightly. They are not identical, obviously, but if you're looking for a similar "hit", you could probably obtain pleasure with any of these. Now I see the fuss and why this is a classic! Not wild about the reformulations. After a few minutes, it became much nicer and developed an individuality. I would love to smell this on a woman but will certainly find a moment to wear it again myself. I do have a large collection of perfumes of different notes, and for different occasions, but all of them feel like they were meant for me. My 13-year old sister found an offer in the back of her beloved Vogue magazine, which she has subscribed to for 40 years now. I find it hard to describe! It is still good! As I was enjoying all the hours that my beloved Calandre wears on my skin, I remembered I had a nearly 20 year old Rive Gauche purchase, in its striped metal can. It is a sillage monster and leaves the most wonderful fragrance trail. You must try it!! In 1974 or so, this was one of my first 'grown up' (I was fourteen) fragrances and I purchased it solely on the basis of the look of the canister, which was gorgeous and sophisticated. My best friend wore it in the 80's and I thought she was so cool taking this out of her handbag. J’adooooore!!! The only downside is that crappy, cheap-looking bottle. i love it.9,5/10 Incredible performance. Jeanette R. Tampa, FL. I have the ed t. It is certainly for a confident lady. Sadly the new reformulation doesn't compare! What have they done to Rive Gauche? In conclusion : God only knows why this is so praised. My mothers choice was the very bold Youth Dew but this bottle represented something more modern. Lovely scent!!! Years ago I went reading about for quality old-school scents and this one kept coming up. Ever since, after years of trying hundreds of perfumes, it has become my signature scent. Years ago, this was a ravising perfume. She stopped wearing this at some point, but still when I smell someone wearing it, I always think of her. I must be using Rive Gauche now a good twentyseven year's & not once have I ever tired of it!! We had our moment together in the heady, wild, sundrenched seventies when you were beautiful and I was young. It’s seems that some of the metallic note has been removed. "C'est ne'st pas une parfum pour les femmes effaces". 1 of 1 people found this review helpful. Not pretty!

Finally got to sample this classic YSL. And it smells like Rive Gauche always smelled, before it was somewhat reformulated. Its name - \'Left Bank\'- stands for the left side of the river Seine, an intellectual, hip and slightly more bohemian side of Paris, where YSL boutique is situated. We didn't got the chance to smell it, and it has never been my favorite. Is it just me? it is very long lasting and the sillage is very good. I had little money but big hair, big attitude, big faith, always in black and red lipstick. It stinks rotten. Obviously a reason to seek out older stock (which she is going to try and do..), In A 1000 000 mln years it is still gonna be. I quite enjoyed it and it was my signature fragrance. Anyhow, I'm no longer worried. So 70s people, may be unisex ... and success on 80s ... Hippie-Chic ... artistic and bohemian as the Rive Gauche ... so chic ... A green and white fresh and little spicy mist but dont forget the methalic and silver smell ... in my country is saddly discontinued ... A really masterpiece!!! Proud and dignified with a confident air, yet very feminine. I almost feel sorry for this perfume. I am never disappointed. Spray on your chest and behind your ears and the magic will operate... if you like florals of course. It's smooth and comforting, at the same time a little sharp and edgy. Comparison Review: Aluminum can vs. vintages. For those who've never experienced the original, please don't judge RG by what's currently available. The business corner has two computers on an attractive black and chrome table, and a printer. The hotel is 1,500 feet from Odeon Metro Station, which provides access to the Clignancourt flea market.

Times change, tastes change. i was thinking of "My burberry" just because it gives me some of the same feelings, (a little green, a little earthy, and a little bit strong..?)

I bought it in a little glass bottle for less than four dollars. I remember feeling very sophisticated and "grown-up" when I bought it. I first started wearing Rive Gauche at the age of 14 (!). Rive Gauche è un profumo intrigante, una vera e propria magia ghiacciata. On first spray, it smells like metal and blue cheese! Recently they were both stolen and I could only find a brand new EDT. It was a fabulous scent that was reformulated and, in my opinion, ruined when I came across it years later (it was early in the 2000’s, is all I can remember). Bound with safflower oil, Rive Gauche fine oils have a lower level of yellowing, and are designed to dry twice as fast as classic oils without losing workability. Even now when I wear it, I get constant compliments and inquiries. I love it. It's not a bad scent in its own right, very cool, dry, powdery. RG smells like Calandre indeed, but I prefer Calandre for its metallic notes and more etherial, less flowery scent. There's not many perfumes that I actively dislike but this is one of them. On me, it starts metallic and I'm a sheet of steel by the end of three hours. They also have a private bathrooms with a shower or bath, or both a shower and a bath. 2-3 sprits are enough.

Lots of powder and green notes and very classic, very 70s, which I usually love, but there was something about this that was very cloudy and muddled. Smells like France for me. I loved it and always kept a mental note that one day I would like to have it. After searching forever, I decided to bite the bullet, stop being a cheapskate, and splurge for this bra after reading many a review. I really really wanted to be able to wear this. This lovely fragrance is so memorable, ( my mom used to wear it many years ago}; that I actually stopped my teacher in class mid-stream, to ask her if she was wearing 'rive gauche'! no-too soapy.

C'est ne pas la meme Rive - "Rive Droite" or "Rive Flanker" perhaps. It was a soft tumbling profusion of cool blue flowers. A truly work of art. This perfume really surprised me, one of the best things I've smelt lately, so comforting, I find it to be between a rose ivory soap and a men's aftershave dry-down smell. It comes with juicy strawberries and there are more strawberries inside the soft sponge cake. I found it such an appalling assault on my senses I had to ask her not to wear it in my presence!

In contrast to L’eau, which is dominated by citrus alongside the aldehyde notes, La Rive Gauche is complemented by the green and woody notes which give it a beautifully earthy but sophisticated aroma. The original formula could easily be my signature scent, but this? I have loved this strange and unusual scent since I was given a clear glass bottle with the design painted on way back in the 80's.It was 100ml and lasted until I ran out a few years ago. Might be the vintage was great ,never saw one ,but the current version is ............ How is it ????? I have spritzed it and have gotten past the aldehydes, so now am in the floral and woody phase. Aldehydes are a vintage smell to me. Gorgeous juice! It's not a bad fragrance, I just think I have to accept that I don't suit the aldehyde notes because they just become intensified on me and even people who like a fragrance, will hate it on me and I can't wash it off. I had this in the late ‘80’s, and loved it. The aldehydes aren’t aggressive but they do add a chilling touch that creates a formal and exclusive character. Not anymore! A total waste of money. Perfumes that were inspired that were unique . Sadly, my nose can't bear it. this scent leaves a very soapy feeling . Maybe I was too young and definitely not in the same league as Mrs Hill.

It's not a bad fragrance, don't get me wrong, it's just not easy to handle. Reformulation catastrophique. I adore this perfume and can't wait to get my little hands on this lil baby :), I'm probably going to get lynched for this but here goes....I know this is deemed a classic and is much loved by many on here and I have an open mind and try all kinds of perfumes but this was just not for me at all.The bottle looks like a cheap deodorant can but I didn't let that deter me I eagerly sprayed, lightly I might add and was nearly knocked off my feet.I had to wash this straight off.You notice that awful phrase on here of "old lady smell" and I dislike seeing that written about any perfume as I believe there are no "nasty" perfumes just very different tastes/skin chemistry etc but I really could not see anyone under 60 liking this, but obviously many people of many ages do and they may turn their noses up at some of my favourites.So I shall end there with a "not for me but glad I tried it" and I hope I have not offended all you lovers of this scent :). The woman living there was the girl from high-school; before I had a chance to greet her after so many years, she called out "Hi, Teri!". I wanted to know how different it is and if it really is as nasty as they claim. I love it even if it's been reformulated several times, the sillage leaves you thinking of a chic Parisienne,but then again I love most of all Yves Saint Laurent fragrances, except black opium( no staying power or sillage at all!)
