A family friend without a credit card asked me to buy "Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau De Parfum Spray 90ml/3oz" online for her.

Is this fragrance sold in America exactly the same fragrance as sold in New Zealand / Australia / Europe?

The reason I ask - I'm aware many international companies vary their products slightly for the American market to cater for their different tastes in some areas. I'm not concerned at all about any packaging differences, just want to make sure she gets what she expecting from the product.

Fishpond are a local company with a good reputation - so fakes are not what I am concerned about. Fishpond ship this item from the USA:

Hi gzt, thats a legit question and Ive found the differences myself, so I joined this site last year.. it actually covers that question (somewhere in there) if you type in the perfume name.

Tried a few searches there but didn't find what I was looking for. Nice search interface though.

I'll register and post a question later on.

So you have found some differences in your experience?

I couldnt seem to find yours on that site either..sorry.

So you have found some differences in your experience?

Yes, but not with YSL .. I use Chanel. The last one I picked up in duty free was a disappointment. Everyone still thinks it smell wonderful, but to me its not the same. The top note has changed, and so had the 2nd but the bottom note was as awesome as ever. Hope you have success with your search. :)
