Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Eau de Toilette Spray.In 1971, Yves Saint Laurent created Rive Gauche to capture the unique atmosphere and lifestyle of the famous Left Bank of Paris. Bold and vivacious, this fragrance is a brilliant blend of crisp florals and warm woods. RIVE GAUCHE is a state of mind, an attitude, a lifestyle. The bravado of Parisian chic! Rive Gauche incarnates the fragrance of a resolutely independent and free-spirited woman. Rive Gauche is more than just a fragrance. Free, sexy and unpredictable, Rive Gauche expresses the quintessence of Yves Saint Laurent's eternal modernity. Since its creation this revolutionary fragrance has kept its evocative power thanks to its inimitable scent and the very original design of its bottle. The fragrance opens with lively touches of bergamot, aldehydes, ylang-ylang and freesia.
