Maximize the effect of Rive Gauche fragrance on your body.
Consider layering Rive Gauche by using the same fragrance in various products. Start with shower and bath gel, then rub in body lotion or spray with a matching after bath spray. Apply last Rive Gauche preferably as Perfume or Eau de Perfume.

Apply Rive Gauche inside of your elbow, back of your knees, wrist, neck and cleavage. That's where the perfume stays warmer longer. Spray a little into the air and walk straight into it. This will diffuse it over your body. Apply Rive Gauche on your lower body working your way up to the top.

Rive Gauche Perfume vs Eau de Perfume vs Eau de Toilette vs Eau de Cologne.
Perfume consists of natural or synthetic fragrance oil extracts diluted in water or high-grade alcohol. The difference lays in the amount or concentration of oils in the fragrance. The higher the concentration of oils the longer the fragrance will last. Most designers like Yves Saint Laurent produce the whole line of fragrances.

Eau de Cologne - just 4% essential oils.
Eau de Toilette
- 8% to 15% essential oils. These are the least concentrated fragrances and last about 2 hours.
Eau de Perfume (Parfum) - 15 to 22% essential oils. Lasts 3-6 hours.
Perfume (Classic Parfum) - highly concentrated - up to 22% of essential oils - lasts 6 hours or more.

About Testers.
Testers are just like the original fragrance only without the retail packaging. Testers may come packaged in a plain white or brown box, with or without a cap. Testers are used in retail stores to support clients in the shopping process. Testers are the least expensive way to enjoy the fragrance you love.      

About Minis.
Minis are smaller bottles, from 0.10 oz to 0.15 oz (10ml-15ml), easy to carry in a purse or shaving kit. Use them for travel, at work, or as an inexpensive way of testing a fragrance for an extended period.
