Timeless

Love, love, love. As a child 40 yrs ago , I loved it then when my mother wore it and I now as an adult continue to wear it. It's a must have!

Just as I remembered!!!

I brought a bootle of this perfume was I was overseas and loved it. I have been unable to find it here in the States in my area. I decided to check on line and was happy to find it.

Received quickly and smells as winderful as I remember!!!

No 1 Perfume

I was 16 when I first smelled rive gauche. That was 35 years ago I remember saving my first paycheck to buy this beautiful perfume. I have switched over the years but always come back to Rive Gauche. It is a little hard to find, that's the only downfall. ❤️

The Best

Please, YSL, begin reproducing this product. You can no longer obtain it, and I have worn it for years. I plead with you to put this back on the market.

Sincerely,
B

The best perfume ever!

The best scent I've ever used in my entire life. I've sprayed my linens, my scarves, my stationery...please bring back the full line. At one time I had the perfume, the body crème, the toilette...everything. It's so hard to get in the States, and I never see the perfume or rich body crème. I have not had any for years and people still ask about the perfume I used to wear.

Smells amazing

I love Rive Gauche, but most importantly I get more compliments wearing this perfume than any other. I wish there was a full line of products. And I wish there was a perfume version. I am too young to remember it from the 70's. My best friends mom did wear this perfume but I don't remover the cent on her. I only remember the iconic bottle.

nothing no other fragrance compare to Rive Gauche

Spray it on a sweater a scarf , a pillow and let it seat for 3 days and no other fragrance delivers like it,
wear it and see what it does to people..strangers... no fragrance create such an amazing response of and from the senses..who ever wears, has worn Rive Gauche, has a story to tell about what it does, even to complete strangers...

In remberance of my mama

I am so happy to have found this site. My mom wore this Rieve Gauche back in the 70'S and I loved the scent I would sneak and spray some when I got ready to go somewhere lol. I feel this scent will bring me a little bit of heaven in Remberance of her. Thank you. Tears

evocative

I first was exposed to this scent in 1973; my best friend's mother wore it. I made it my own and have been wearing it ever since. I, like many others, feel the complete line should be brought back! I really miss the lotion, parfum, and would love the powder. Please, YSL, listen to those who know and love the true essence of this fragrance. I have been associated with it all these years, as was my mother! I brought it home and she loved it. Since she and my friend's mother have passed, I carry the torch!

Rive Gauche, Please Return

Jun 19, 2014

As a 12 year old child, while watching my aunt prepare for work in front of the mirror, she turned to me and handed me a third full container of Rive Gauche. "Here, keep this!" Those words were my cue to spritz that amazing scent on me. I could not believe it, I owned such an exquisite scent. I remember using my beautiful Rive Gauche fragrance sparingly so as to preserve it.
That moment and the fragrance have remained in my memory for my entire life. I have continued to wear Rive Gauche and love as much as when I was 12. I lead YSL to understand how difficult it is to obtain this most beautiful fragrance. I particularly like to be able to purchase a fragrance spontaneously from any retailer, since I run out of Rive Gauche frequently. My question is WHY is a fragrance, which is clearly the most beautiful on your entire line and in any retail store, on such a hiatus? Please stop making the many Rive Gauche customers have to buy such a limited line of your absolute winner, Rive Gauche. Bring back an entire line of Rive Gauche! There is nothing but garbage out there! Rive Gauche must return!
Thank you,
Smelling of Rive Gauche

Takes me back......

Not "quite" the same as the original from when I was in High School and used to wear this "iconic scent". However, I am very pleased with the beautiful, fresh scent that this Eau De Toilette Spray allows me to enjoy.

Rive Gauche Love It!!!

Sep 24, 2015

This is my very favorite fragrance. I first fell in love with it at the age of 16 (43 years ago) when I had a boss that wore it. It was 6 hours of pay to buy it but I felt it was worth it. I miss being able to find the other products to layer the fragrance.

Love Rive Gauche!!!!!

Bring back the parfume!!

Oct 20, 2012

I've practically bathed myself with Rive Gauche everyday since as long as I can remember. It certainly is lighter and doesn't last as long as it used to, I guess that's due to it being Eau de Toilette and not the 'parfume'. Please bring back the RG perfume, I promise to still 'bathe' in it and wear it everyday!!!

Fabulous!

Rive Gauche is my all time favortie scent. It is the only scent that I put on that doesn't change due to my body chemistry. In the 70's someone gave my mother a bottle as a Christmas gift and she let me have it because I loved it so. I have loved it ever since. For a long time I was unable to find it, but now that I can again, I hope I never have to give it up again.
