Y, the first fragrance from Yves Saint Laurent, embodies the luxury and elegance of the YSL House of Fragrance.
Yves Saint Laurent gave the initial of his name to this perfume creation, added a masculine touch to this fragrance for strong women. This is a scent for an elegant, sensual female, with a sense of her own freedom and potential. Yet she is restrained. Her sensuality is delicate, only detectable in the trail she leaves behind her.
The top note of Yves Saint Laurent Y Eau De Toilette is almost cold through the presence of a fused spicy note combined with the freshness of bergamot. Then come sumptuous, silky soft notes of white flower. At the heart lies quintessentially elegant iris, a flower with woody overtones. The base opens onto a note of oak moss which is the hallmark of the elegance of chypre fragrances, associated with patchouli. Deep, vibrant and intense, patchouli accompanies the floral note to create a mysterious and exciting trail which leaves quite remarkable presence.
It was a present for my Mum and she loves it so I would say it's excelkent!
