Yves Saint Laurent Paris Rebel Collector ~ new perfume

Yves Saint Laurent Paris Rebel

Yves Saint Laurent has launched Paris Rebel Collector, a new fragrance for women. Paris Rebel is a flanker to 1983's Paris.

Yves Saint Laurent reinvents the rose in this daring combination of sweetness and provocation. A modern new fragrance that tells the story of contrasts, fusing original notes of tomato with feminine Rose Absolute.

Paris Rebel was developed by perfumer Loc Dong, who noted the difference between Paris Rebel and the original Paris:

Both fragrances are based on rose flower. The original PARIS evokes a romantic city and its rose absolute is sublimated by a powdery violet accord. However, PARIS REBEL COLLECTOR reveals a vibrant facet of the city, illustrated by the original combination of the rose absolute with notes of tomato leaves that bring a green freshness. The dry-down notes of this new edition are also quite different from the original one, offering a new woody vibration.

Additional notes include citrus, pink pepper, amber and musk.

Yves Saint Laurent Paris Rebel can be found now at Saks Fifth Avenue, $105 for 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Excellent, a flanker of a flanker!

    I’m having trouble imagining the extreme rose and violet of Paris with the added jolt of tomato leaf.

    • Robin says:

      Yeah? But it’s just a flanker of Paris, isn’t it?

      • cavewoman says:

        It is nothing and I mean NOTHING like Paris or it’s other flankers. Tomato leaf, yes, synthetic amber and musk, and woods woods and more woods. Amost masculine. And a HUGE disappointment to me, since I have loved Paris from the day it launched at Bloomingdales in NYC and have every one of its versions and flankers. This is such a scrubber that I am actually a bit nauseous from it. Proceed with caution, Paris lovers.

        • Robin says:

          Oh, thanks P! I’m a longtime fan of Paris too.

          • cavewoman says:

            You’re welcome. I am still in shock about this. I wanted to give fair warning to anyone who, like me, was thinking that Paris Rebel would be another good flanker. Mine is going back to Saks tomorrow.
