What it is

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite scent I became aware of Rive Gauche 30+ years ago. I smelled it on a lady at a movie theater and was sold, hook, line and sinker. I have been using it since, and sadly since a few years ago, it has been altered somewhat, but I still love the scent--it's like nothing else on the planet. If only they would make an Eau de Parfum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase of a Hard to find gem My mom was telling me about a parfum her boss gave her about 30 years ago. The parfum was such a nice smell she said. So I curiously checked online (can't find in department stores) and to my surprise I found it for her. She was so surprised and wears it now for all summer special occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Fragrance for the past 45 years!!!! I began wearing Rive Gauche Eau De Toilette Spray in 1972 and I was heartbroken when my favorite cologne "Rive Gauche" disappeared off the shelves in stores. I was continually told that they Yves Saint Laurent had stopped making it. A year ago I had the idea to Google it and so happy to have found it again. I spritz myself almost every day! Just LOVE the fragrance!!!! So light and delicate and am constantly complemented on how nice I smell by both men and women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite all time fragrance next to tuxedo Will have to purchase from YSL site as my Amazon purchase is more green smelling than original fresh powdery clean fragrance. The bottle I just finished using was from France back in the late 90s I asked a friend to buy to compare USA to France version. Never buying from Amazon or eBay again with this fragrance. Staying power lacks in comparison as well. Incidentally, please please please bring back short lived fragrance tuxedo??? Next to rive gauche my all time favorite by ysl. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. ❤️

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!!!!!

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 Rive Gauche, Please Return 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

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 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 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 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!!!

I see that there are 50 ml sprays advertised on Amazon, but the YSL site only lists a 100 ml spray. Is the Amazon one old stock, or is it counterfeit? Any insight? I have a large perfume collection so don't need 100 ml of anything!
Asked by: Anonymous
I only once bought the Rive Gauche from a site other than the YSL site and it was counterfeit. It was not from Amazon, though. Since then I only buy from the official YSL site. 100 ml is quite alright for my wife.

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!!

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?
Asked by: ChristineM
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. 1993 is probably too old, in my opinion you should buy a new one.

I have been using this fragrance since the mid-70s. However, sadly it does not smell the same. The fragrance was reengineered after Yves St. Laurent died and a new company head was brought in - don't remember which one of the top of my head. Even with the change, it is still a great perfume with excellent lasting power. People always comment on it.

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. Everybody asked what I'm wearing. But no, the new formation is not the same. I saw one in Paris 2 weeks ago. I was not sure if the formula in Europe is different from U.S. Is the old fornula back?
Asked by: ChrisS
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.
