The company’s name is from its fashion designer founder, Yves Saint Laurent. With a wish to achieve prominence in other industries, the fashion house adventured into the world of fragrances in 1964. For the following decades, new scents were released independently until Ysl teamed up with L'Oreal Group to offer contemporary colognes and perfumes.
