Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Saint Laurent Saharienne. I bought the big 125ml bottle last year when I spotted it on sale at one of the big department stores. I’m more than halfway through the bottle, so it’s time for a review! 🙂
First of all, this fragrance contains the following notes: lemon, bergamot and mandarin (top notes), white flowers, cassis, orange flower, galbanum and petitgrain (heart notes), as well as ginger and pink pepper (base notes).
What’s the fragrance like? I think Saharienne is nothing more than a glorified cologne. It smells of bergamots and white flowers, it’s definitely a unisex fragrance, it’s very mediterranean, but it’s hardly more than an inoffensive (summer) office fragrance. And whilst I enjoy wearing Saharienne to the office, I wouldn’t repurchase it because it’s not very special.
It appears that Yves Saint Laurent Saharienne has been discontinued. None of the big retailers have it in stock. However, I have no doubt that it can be found online for years to come!
