    Question Help! Differences between 2 YSL fragrances?

    Hi to everybody.

    I always loved stronger fragrances, hence after I bought Declaration I went for the "Essence" version and the same with Must, Eau d'Orange Verte etc. etc.

    But they indeed differ from the original.

    Question is: does the same situation apply to YSL Rive Gauche Intense and normal Rive Gauche?

    Thanks for your help

    Greetings

    Much more patchouli in the Intense version. Also, the sharp anise is a little more muted in the Intense.

    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    If you fancy anise and somewhat sharper, greener notes, then make it the Rive Gauche or Rive Gauche Light.
    If you go for darker, patchouli-based frags, then make it my favorite (i.e., Rive Gauche Intense).

    Rive Gauche is the only frag I've ever bought blind. I wish I knew that the intense version had less anise and more patchouli. Drat!
