Reviews of Ysatis

Wide shoulders, big hair, loud perfume; fashion was really over the top in the eighties. And although it wasn't on the Red List with Giorgio and Poison, this stonking great powdery tuberose is still one to handle with care.

Ysatis is a beautiful vintage-style floral, but it lacks « a bit of something » and has got « too much of other stuff ». That makes it itchy to the nose and a bit dull.

I haven't encountered a woman wearing this in many years, but at one time Ysatis was my favorite perfume to smell on a woman.

My memories of this are from the vintage version circa 1992.
I read the modern formula is weaker and more floral.

The vintage version was strong, feminine, sexy, and a bit mysterious.

The kind of perfume a high-powered professional lady would wear if she were bold in her private life. Floral and feminine on the surface, yet with woody and even slightly animalistic undertones.

You could loofah every inch of your body, emerge from shower with the steam still rising from your skin, put this on and smell STALE. I'm not saying that Ysatis in particular gave birth to the "fresh" ozonic 90's, but I'm not saying it didn't, either.

She was my main supporter in writting.and she was the first one who read my reviews.
An unique queen with a wonderful collection.
Whereas most of my feminine reviews was about the vintage fragrances derived from her awesome collection.
I remember well the last time she hugged me,I smelled this of her favorite perfume.
She always eager to read my review about it but...
Now I am going to present this special review to her big soul,that I wrote it today in my three special style.She is a heroine.Yes she is my grandmother.

1.The snow-blind white of the jasmine and tuberose blossoms sparkle with beguiling sweetness,with narcotic opulence;the atmosphere instantly becomes dreamy upon inhaling their emanations.but the beautiful can be rendered dangerous if you smell too much too much of either.
GIVENCHY stops just short of the haunting dark intensions engulfing you with the design,adding a garland of tempting elements with a soapy vibe(orange blossom,rose and jasmine)and some spice(cloves,ylang ylang)for nice balance.
The insinuating base,though,full of animalistic civet,recalls vintage perfume of yore,when women were real women and had men for breakfast.just like HER!

2.She wearing deep red lipstick,her cheeks bring a hint of blush to her porcelain skin,she wears high heel tightly fitted boots,with fir coats and fat diamond rings,..she walks through the hallway in the empire state building with confidence.she glids her fingers down her hair every now and then and grabbs everyone attention with her style and her scent.her scent is timeless,classy,classic,memorable,queenly,rich and floral which makes it clear that the wearer is a real heroine just like HER!

3.I am a real vintage lover just like experience that do not put this kind of perfumes on clothes as they are not a linear smell that stays the same whenever you put it.this scents really a multifaceted gem that needs body feminine warmth.
Fracas,N5 and Miss dior I am not saying this is similar to them just that it evokes the same feeling:power and being in control.if you like any if those you would adore this one just like HER!

This perfume is really great if you are looking for something that gives an impression of freshly cut grass or green leaves. I was actually looking for something like this a while back, and didn't even realize that's exactly what this scent is!
It's great for both men and women, and can be worn pretty much any time and anywhere because it isn't a very strong or overwhelming scent. The main reason I'm only giving it three stars is because I find it fades out kind of fast and doesn't have great longevity, so you may have to re apply this one throughout the day. I'm not really a big fan of having to do that. Aside from that, this is a really great Classic Chypre that you should definitely think of trying, especially if you're a fan of Chypres and green and woody scents in general.
