    Paris by Yves Saint Laurent

    Delicate, romantic, feminine, pretty, bright... Paris is one of the "loudest" perfumes I've ever owned. I wouldn't recommend it for day wear, unless applied very lightly. The first time I tried Paris, it felt like a big bouquet blossomed right in front of my eyes, with all the roses, violets, jasmines going on. The floral opening note struck me so much that I purchased a bottle right away. However, when I came home, the dry down kicked in, which is not as bright and cheerful. With my skin chemistry, the sandelwood smells like a scented soap.

    I still love the floral quality of this fragrance, and just wish it'd stay true to the floral scene throughout. The drydown feels a bit too mature and gloomy.
