Dark, mossy wood. Intriguing!

MasterLi, parfumo.net
29 January 2014
  • Summary: This is definitely an aromatic fougère fragrance. The dark woody notes make it unique and interesting to wear. I must admit I was turned off by the mention of the whole "barbershop" vibe. But now I'm sure that this one stands out as a very dark and greenish woody fragrance that will suit most users and can be worn as a day or night time scent. I find it an intriguing one to wear and would certainly recommend it.

Woody Marine Aromatic

Silverfire, parfumo.net
20 September 2013
  • Summary: If I had only three words to describe Rive Gauche Pour Homme, I'd say "woody marine aromatic." Now as for the rest of this review, I'll trace the etymology of each of these words back to -- just kidding. This scent combines a faintly sugary pine with an aromatic water-wind freshness for a few feet projection. It's fresh without being soapy and masculine without veering into machismo territory.

A true modern classic!

  • Summary: Un parfum doit avant tout sentir bon. (A perfume must above all smell good.) ~Guy Robert~ And that's exactly what Rive Gauche pour Homme does! A "modern fougere". IMO, everyone should have RGpH in their collection. It's not my #1 favorite but it's a solid, clean smelling, non-offensive performer that's perfect for when you just want to smell good. I will never be without it...

Rive Gache Pour Homme- One of the Best Designer, Masculine Scents on the Market

Scentimental, parfumo.net
27 January 2013
  • Summary: My review for Rive Gauche Pour Homme (Original formulation - from the 4.2 oz./125 ml 'shaving can' flacon): A step back to the time of classic, old-school barbershops but with a great twist of modernity. Yves Saint Laurent did something special here in the realm of the traditional Aromatic Fougere. It is not a scent that will blow your mind, but instead, put it at ease. Sometimes, as in this case, less is more.

  • Summary: Awesome fragrance! Very masculine, this is a masterpiece for sure. One of the best releases of all the times. Anise, lavander and rosemary is the most pronounced notes to my nose. This has a barbershop smell, which is wonderful to my nose. Classic yet modern, this is an all-year-around scent. If you like Azzaro, Chanel Platinum Egoiste, you'll love Rive Gauche. Sillage, lasting power and projection are good.

An oxymoron; dirty yet clean

Missk, parfumo.net
23 June 2012
  • Summary: Rive Gauche for Men is a timeless masterpiece that deserves widespread availability. I'd love some of the younger men in my life to have the opportunity to experience something so extravagant and earthy as this. Rich and herbaceous, Rive Gauche for Men is understandably an acquired taste. However that's not to say that this fragrance is in any way offensive or loud. I would actually say this fragrance is quite clean and refreshing despite its earthiness.

Die "Leichtigkeit" des Seins / Even lighter!

Skylab, parfumo.de
10 April 2014
  • Summary: Es gab sie, jene Zeit, wo manch Hersteller Jahre brauchte, um ein neues Parfum zu lancieren. Heute fließt das Geld (leider) hauptsächlich in das Marketing. Und lange vor dem Flanker "Wahn" gab es sie auch schon - die Ableger etablierter Düfte. Nur wurden diese nicht - übertrieben wie heute - auf den Markt geschmissen. Heute fühle ich mich beinahe erschlagen und auch irgendwie überfordert!

User Review

Seastar, fragrantica
1 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Давно я не доставал его из дальних закромов, а сегодня ничего кроме него и не хотелось! Обжигающе горячее мокрое полотенце на лице. Невесомый и одновременно плотный комок густой мыльной пены. Ароматное буйство пряных трав и цветов и приятный холодок пробегающий по спине от привкуса остро заточенной стальной бритвы на языке!

Leider wenig Gegenliebe

Chnokfir, parfumo.de
19 February 2014
  • Summary: Es gibt schon Tage, da sollte man besser auf seine Nase und zusätzlich auf seinen Bauch hören. Dummerweise weiss man äusserst selten vorher, wenn so ein Tag gekommen ist ... Ich hatte schon zwei oder drei Mal Rive Gauche in der Parfumerie meines Vertrauens getestet, wissen die doch dort, dass ich Fougere-Düften an sich nie abgeneigt bin ... zu einem Kauf kam es jedoch nie. Irgendwann hiess es dann, der Duft käme aus dem Sortiment.

Jäger des verlorenen Schatzes

Smellslike, parfumo.de
7 May 2013
  • Summary: Servus, mit diesem Kandidaten habe ich mir recht viel Zeit gelassen. Es ist beinahe der letzte Duft in meinem derzeitgen Sortiment und mitunter auch der Liebste. Ist es mein Signaturduft? Wenn es nach meinem persönlichen Empfinden geht ja, insbesondere wenn es um die Häufigkeit der Anwendungen geht. Je mehr Düfte ich kennenlerne, desto mehr weiss ich Rive gauche pour homme zu schätzen.
