Women in France don’t just love fragrance, they can’t imagine living without it. In France, the higher class of woman, the more she wants her perfume to be subtle. So I guess at my heart I’m a French Woman because I never go out without perfume.
The Sent you dab defines who you are. I wear only classical French perfume and they has become very important in my life.
Y by Yves Saint Laurent and Miss Dior Originale and the French message behind is:
“I belong to a great family. I come from style. I wear the same fragrance as the most stylish people.”
Y was launched in 1964 and Yves Saint Laurent said that when he introduced Y:
“Women rarely expressed their sexuality in public. They were more practical in their approach. More inhibited in their desires. Now, a woman wants more — a man wants more, too.”
Y is a perfect office Chypre Fruity fragrance for women.
Christian Dior intended his first scent to complement his famed New Look 1947.
Miss Dior is one of the few chypres I like. The soft, not-sweet base, the intriguing heart notes, and the mysterious opening notes captivated me from the start.
