About Yvresse / Champagne

Originally launched with the name "Champagne" until the Champagne makers got all uppity. It was renamed as Yvresse - a play on YSL's name.

Yvresse / Champagne fragrance notes

Reviews of Yvresse / Champagne

A very good friend just gifted me a vintage bottle of Champagne Parfum, and it is delightful.

I have not ever gotten my nose on any other formulas of this scent, so I cannot compare it to any others. This stays close to the skin, and is thankfully not loud nor brash.

I find it to be a clear melodic scent, with both depth and clear tone that cannot help but make me smile.

I'll write more later.

This review is for the reformulated Yvresse from the "La Collection", in the chubby cube bottle.

Well, since it's impossible to not compare this to the fabulous original formula, here goes my dissection of this monster:

*Triple the Litchi
*Halve the Stone Fruits & Violet
*Remove Coconut, Amber, and Woods


This reform is so sweet it actually makes me queasy. It isn't even as good as the Champagne dupe "perfume oil" I bought in Mexico a decade ago. I would never wear this even if I wasn't closely acquainted with the original. Maybe if it was layered with a woody, nutty, amber base it would improve. But, why bother?

Much admired by me when a friend wears the original Yvresse, not the La Collection, I can't bring myself to buy it. I won't, you know, the older I get, the less bombastic my fragrance loves are. Dear BAV was that femme fatale I fell in love with in the seventies and I don't wear it anymore. Sophia Grojsman, who authored Yvresse, made a very fine perfume, but the La Collection one is missing a link to the original, as I confirmed for myself today. It was unexpectedly at the YSL counter. I am lukewarm about Gabrielle, the new Chanel offering, but it's a fruity floral of today, so I'd put my money there.

This is the happiest, brightest fragrance I own.

I don't usually go for fruity scents, but this one is like a freshly made fruit drink, juicy and happy and with white wine for refreshment. Effervescent, bubbly, sunny.

I smell this and it makes me smile.

It does evolve and show more complex facets, chypre that it is. But always bright and happy and juicy and like a sunny spring afternoon.

I own a bottle decanted from a tester when a local perfume store closed.

Update: It lasts really long. Always fruity and juicy, and not in a sickly sweet way. Oddly, it reminds me of a deeply fragrant pear. I enjoy it a lot.

Mine is the old "Champagne" found at an estate sale. This is my second or third wearing and I'm concerned it may have turned.
I got the sparkly effervescent top, and maybe there is peach and apricot in there, but I also have a sour almost urine-like odor. Could that be the violet?
I really hope the middle and base are amazing as they sound, but I haven't caught it yet.

I'm riding it out and will update my review...

Updated: I do not like this one. On me, it smells like pee and lasts forever. I could still smell it going to bed.

Years ago, when this first came out, a houseguest brought this as a gift for my wife ( I got a single malt) from duty free. It was called Champagne back then. Such a thoughtful gift, such beautiful packaging! The fragrance, however, was such a disappointment! A loud, fruity mess that my wifely bravely wore a few times. It is the only fragrance I have ever asked her not to wear ( around me, anyway) and she was only too happy to get rid of it ( she gave it to a surprised and delighted friend). Years later, when I think of the perfumes that I have really disliked-- Tresor, White Linen, Paris, Spellbound--there is a clear link. They are all loud, brash, harsh scents that have the Grosjman stamp on them, loud and clear. Such a shame because the creative brief (capture the essence of champagne in a fragrance) in different, more capable hands, could have resulted in something great.
