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.

Carlos E: My wife only uses Rive Gauche and has done so for years.
This is the second time I bought the Rive Gauche Eau de Toilett, directly from the YSL site and found out that she was very satisfied with the fragrance and from my side I was very satisfied with their customer service.

Michael Green: 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. Mar 26, 2015

Gail R asked: 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?

Eleanor B: I agree, it does seem quite distinct at first (I love its fragrance), and then it seems to lose its aroma, Perhaps I've become accustomed to it by that time, I'm not sure.....BUT, i ENJOY IT WHENEVER I PICK UP THAT CANNISTER AND SPRAY AWAY, UMM, MY FAVORITE.

Donna S: I never purchased the perfume oil, but this spray is the scent is authentic. Many people have complained that the formulation is different, but it does not seem different to me. For many years, I could only find rive gauche in europe, not US, and then not at all. Last year, when YSL put it back into the lineup, I bought the eau de toilette spray. It's great. Dec 9, 2012

Christine M asked: Is it correct that Rive Gauche Eau De Toilette Spray was reformulated shortly after 2000? If so, is it very different from the original? I personally really like the "sharpness" of the original - so would like to know if the fragrance still has the "sharpness". Also wondering how long-lasting it is on the skin. ANY info. gratefully appreciated!! Jul 28, 2013

ANDREW M: We too were concerned about the "re-formulation" My wife used this fragrance in the early eighties, and hasn't seen it around for a while, so for a daily user we took the plunge and bought the eau de toilet for a blast fr the past. If it has been changed ( the formula) there isn't enough difference for us to notice bases on our memories of over 25 years ago and are therefor very happy with the product. As to how long it lasts on the skin, that's probably down to individual body chemistry and use. Under normal use my wife doesn't have to apply more than once befor going out. Jul 29, 2013

Margot K: I have been wearing Rive Gauche for almost thirty years now so, if they did reformulate it at some point, it was not substantial enough to have been noticed. Yes, there is still a "sharpness" at first application that, to my nose anyway, dissipates then mellows and lingers throughout the day. For me, several small, strategic spritzes in the morning last the whole day-- I never have to re-apply. However, if you do want that "sharpness" you will need to spritz more than once a day.
Hope this helps!

Grace G: Hi Christine, My friend, from Australia, bought me the Rive Gauche about
4 years ago and I have been using it ever since. There is no place in my
home town that I can buy this, so I buy from N.Y.C. I love it and wear it
all the time and get many compliments. It seems to me that the fragrance
is there all day. I don't think you would be unhappy with this at all. It
certainly is worth the money. Good luck.

virginia h: I think it's just as good as ever. It stays on me all day and I always get comments about how how good the scent is . Around 2000 all of a sudden I couldn't find Rive Gauche any where and so for six years I ordered it from Paris, until I found this website. I still think Rive Gauche is the best and have used it for forty years. Hope this helps you. Enjoy. Virginia. Jul 28, 2013

Susan C: Thanks, Wonda. I, too, wish it would return to the stores. I've also worn it since the 80's. It's rare that I find something I like to wear. I'm down to my last few drops. Guess I'll order on line, too. I've checked all over Georgia. I used to find it at Perfumania, but no more. S Feb 25, 2013
Margot K: Hello Susan C,
I don't know where you live, but if you live in North America, I am very sorry to say that Rive Gauche is only available now online (if you live in the U.S.) or by calling the YSLBeautyUS 866 telephone number. As I don't live in the U.S., I cannot order online and it is quite a logistical hassle as the only way I can buy it is to send it to a U.S. shipping address. Having said that, I have been wearing Rive Gauche for over 30 years, so I remain quite motivated to always have it!
Hope this helps.

A shopper asked: Do you still produce soap? Apr 15, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Denise H: YSL asked me to answer you question. I doubt they still make the soap.If you have been wearing Rive Gauche for very long (me 37 years) you shoud have noticed that it does not smell the same. The orginial had a very long lasting after smell which I loved. It also smelled very strong when you first put it on.It had to clam down for about 30 mins. The info that i have been able to get is in 2000 they changed the formula to the one now. I have not been able to get skin lotion or powder. In the 70's I could get all kinds of Rive Gauche products, by the 90's hardly any. I wish I could still buy the original, I guess the new is better than no Rive Gauche at all. Apr 15, 2012

David B: David purchased this spray for me, his wife. He first introduced me to this fragrance possibly over 30-yrs ago. As the writer has asked, I too would like to ask the very same question. When I thought about it, it has been a very long time now since anyone commented on my lovely perfume, and what was it. I also checked with my two daughters, who realized they did not notice their Mom's nice scent any more. And I was almost known by it at one time. This has to say something about the present formulation I would think. As well as the purchase made in Nov. the one I am currently using was bought in Harrods in London at Christmastime ... and my most recent purchase was made at Madrid airport. We chose to buy when we see this product as it is not so easy to find any more ... sadly! I always have loved it ... and owned it. Jun 21, 2012
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
David B: I believe this shopper is correct. The Eau de Toilette spray I purchased directly from you on November 2011 does not appear to have any lingering odor. Nor does the spray purchased in Harrods in December of last year. Previous purchases (over the last 4 years) - mainly from Heathrow airport, also appear to rapidly lose their scent.

Have you changed the formula?

Christine M asked: I have loved this fragrance since I first "discovered" it in 1981. Can anyone give me an idea of the approximate "shelf-life" of the Eau De Toilette? I have a bottle that I bought in around 1993 - still have some left but it doesn't smell quite the same..... Is it time to purchase a new one? Jul 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Carlos E: My wife has been using the Rive Gauche Eau de Toilette Spray for more than 20 years now, unfortunately we do not have the kind of dat you need because the longest a flask has been left on the shelf was one year and it kept the fragance.
Now, remember that one thing is to still be able to sense the fragrance immediately after sparaying it and the other is how long it will last on the skin.
1993 is probably too old, in my opinion you should buy a new one.

A shopper asked: Why is this so hard to find? Why would it not be more readily available from the manufacturer since it is so popular and has so many loyal users! I have also used RG for about 40 years and get very disappointed with it's lack of availability. Dec 10, 2013

Rive Gauche Eau De Toilette Spray

Overall rating

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

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.

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.

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!!!

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

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 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.
