I have been wearing Rive Gauche since the 70's and absolutely love it. Everywhere I go, I am asked what fragrance I am wearing and where it can be purchased. It is a shame that it is so difficult to find in regular retail stores, which is why I go directly to the source. As long as they keep making it, I will keep buying it. It is my "signature" fragrance.

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!

My mom has been wearing this scent for as long as I can remember and she still loves it! It is very classic and has never gone out of style. We purchase her a new one once a year - usually for Christmas, and the bottle lasts for the entire year.

I loved this scent years ago..... like 30+ yrs ago and haven't been able to find it in forever! I was so excited to find it on the Yves St Laurent site and it smells as wonderful now as it did then! I'm so elated to have this on my armoire again!

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.

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!!!

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.

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!
