Rive Gauche

Hey hey everyone!

Rive Gauche is a neighbourhood in Paris. It’s a place where the river Seine is divided into two, dividing the city. But it’s also an Yves Saint Laurent perfume.
It comes in a very chic blue, black (signature YSL) and silver bottle and the price is also very chic, let’s put it that way.


I’ve hated this perfume all my life. It’ too strong, it gives me headaches and I don’t care what you say, it doesn’t fade quickly. But yet, even though I don’t really like it, when I went into  perfume shop today I couldn’t help but spraying some on my hand.

I sniffed my hand through all the afternoon. And although I still think only a crazy person should wear, I would go into that store everyday and spray it on my hand.
Because to me this perfume is much more than just a perfume.

It’s my Mom.

And having the scent on me reminds me of her and makes me not miss her so much. Or maybe miss her even more, I haven’t decided yet. But for now, I’ll sniff it a bit more.
