Y Le Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent, A darker, more robust interpretation of the original Perfume Y, Y Le Parfum is a rich, spicy and woody aromatic fragrance with a fresh yet warm fougere profile.
The scent opens with a brisk, effervescent expression of tart-sweet grapefruit and green apple mingled with attention-getting aldehydes and a hint of cut ginger root. Heart notes are boldly aromatic with subtle floral undertones, merging piquant geranium absolute and clary sage with a clean accord of lavender essence. Enveloping, earthy-sweet patchouli extract and resinous olibanum in the base fuse with dark almond nuances of tonka bean and smoothest cedar to produce an intense, lingering trail.
This aromatic fougere fragrance was released by French fashion and lifestyle label Yves Saint Laurent in 2021. Other popular men’s compositions by this Paris-based brand include the fresh citrus floral aromatic Y Live (2019), the fruity herbal aromatic Kouros Silver (2015) and the citrus aromatic aquatic L’Homme Cologne Bleue (2018).
