Yvresse A Perfect Perfume for a New Year's Eve

I know this post is a bit late, but it's the spirit in which it was written that counts right? :)
I was invited to a fabulous New year's eve Party by the lakeside at a dear friend's place.Their new year's eve bash is always the talk of the town. It was great this year too, even though there was a bit of a hurdle by some gate crashers. But hey, I ain't complaining, I had a  really great time.
Check out one of my favorites from the goody bag we all received
OPI performing pair in, Bring on the Bling and coordinating 2-in1 lip gloss


 I was concerned about what to wear

 perfume-wise that is :) Was debating between two great perfumes, but in the end I'm glad I chose Yvresse by Yves Saint Laurent.

Yvresse was first launched by Yves Saint Laurent in 1993. A crisp,woodsy, chypre fragrance. Back then it was called Champagne, named after the sparkling bubbly.

I'm soo going to get sued!
The French wine industry filed a lawsuit against YSL, claiming this was not Champagne produced in the Champagne Region of France so they must change it's name. The French winegrowers even  smashed bottles of  champagne in front of the journalists who had arrived in Paris for the launch party. YSL lost the case and came up with the name Yvresse which means "intoxication/drunkenness"  in French.
What's in a name...eh?
Yvresse is a vibrant, sparkly fruity chypre on my skin. A very unique and interesting scent. When first sprayed on, a juicy golden ripe aroma of peaches and apricots is very noticeable. Minutes later the most delicious aroma of anise and mint appears mingled with a hint of cinnamon. Litchi then makes an appearance and stays till the end mixed in with woods, patchouli, vetiver and oakmoss . It is quite potent and more suitable for evening wear. Lasts for hours on the end.
The bottle is one of my favorites and looks like an unopened champagne cork.
Wear it and celebrate life!
