But why choose? One can have both Cristalle and Tiare, and alternate depending on mood. I own Tiare parfum, which is very intense and long lasting. But the edp has plenty of sillage and longevity too.
Why choose indeed! You're right, but they do take up very similar space in my mind, perfume-wise, so one would probably do. Of course, I probably will own both, eventually....
Y was repackaged in one of those cube-shaped bottles, just like a bunch of other YSLs, including M7, In Love Again, Nu, etc. I actually smelled that before I ever smelled the previous version and liked it very much (I'd been looking to try Nu, which didn't do much for me, and was surprised to find myself really impressed with it). Then I found a bottle of the pre-repackage at TK Maxx and bought that. I can't tell much of a difference, but I can't really be trusted on that score. But I think you can still find the older bottles for not too expensive.
