Ive just bought this online. It is discontinued and was last produced over 15 years ago. I was never a great fan of this fragrance, but was tipped off by a fellow basenotes member and must agree that the extrait is mind-blowing stuff.
It is sometimes described as a perfume based around a cocktail of roses, but I find the huge portion of violette in this perfume really dominates the roses. I was told by YSL that they stopped producing the extrait because the price of the various rose oils became too expensive to justify its production. I dont know how true this is ?
Has anyone else tried this?.........it is great for layering and mixing in tiny portions!
