Inspired by the French avant-garde, the classic fragrance of Rive Gauche was designed by Yves Saint Laurent to show in scent the independent and unpredictable spirit of YSL Rive Gauche Prêt-à-Porter. First, rose with bright bergamot highlights calls freshness to mind, but this floral can’t hide its capriciousness. An unexpected middle arises: oakmoss, vetiver and musk quickly take over, setting up the deeply quixotic finish. In the iconic column-inspired flacon of cobalt blue glass and metal.

Rive Gauche Eau De Toilette Spray is rated 4.928571428571429 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nirvana 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back the parfume!! 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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rive Gauche Love It!!! 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!!!!!

i am looking for the perfume not the toilette spray. according to the previous asked questions its been taken off market. ?? its now 8/2015 is this still the case? thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
I looked for the perfume for quite some time before I learned that it had evidently been taken off the market and only the toilette spray was available. I also learned that this had been re-formulated and does not smell quite the same as the original as I remember it from decades ago. It seems it used to have more of a "spicy" scent and now it smells more like baby powder.

I agree with Chris S...the formula does not smell the same, it's very strong at first and takes awhile to tone down, then it doesn't linger like the product from the 70's. This one reminds me of cloying, "great aunt Lydia" dusting powder! I loved the lightness of the original and would love to see it come back. You may use the same recipe but the ingredients are not the same quality in my opinion. Any chance of bringing back the original recipe?
Asked by: GailR
I am so glad to see that they are making it again. I is the most wonderful sent. I hope the formula has not changed much, but every time some one changes the formula it is not the same. Why do they have to change formulas when it is a success as is, very confusing.

Where can i find the body lotion, oil or cream. I love Rive Gauche, Opium and In Love Again.I miss the body oils? Thanks Carmen

Because the fragrance was reformulated several years ago (around 2006) all the accompanying body products have been discontinued. You can find them at some online auction sites that will not be named for insanely high prices, if you're interested.

Do you make a body cream or lotion for layering the Rive Gauche? I have loved this fragrance since I was a teenager and one of my bosses wore it. I bought my first can when I was 16. So happy to have found it again. I love it!
Asked by: AntoinetteW
I love rive Gauche also and remember the body cream and soap loved them also. Unfortunately, I can't find them anywhere. I don't think YSL makes them anymore.
