The DSH website says this is a tribute to YSL's Paris fragrance, which I wore all through college and several years beyond. This one is very interesting - it's like Paris wrapped up in something else. So the top note is something very sweet, and then the middle is not a tribute to Paris, it IS Paris, and then there's a basenote of something musky. I really, really wanted to love this, but it's a little too sweet for me. But I can imagine that many fans of the original Paris will have a nostalgic time with this one.
