It is a fragrance suitable for all occasions and moods and absolutely meets the words of Napoleon: "I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate... and I drink Champagne when I lose, for solace." This sharp floral-fruity fragrance is still not a classic chypre which demands time to open on the skin. Yvresse's composition sounds short enough, just like the full impact of Champagne: as soon as the brilliant top notes disappear, the scent wraps you with its warmth. The main notes are nectarine, anise, menthol, Otto rose, blue rose, litchi, oak moss, patchouli, vetiver. Yves Saint Laurent changed the name from Champagne to Yvresse because of lawsuits filed by French producers of the sparkling wine that originally bore the name.
