The Best 5 Scents We Know Yves Saint-Laurent For:

There isn’t just one “best” perfume. Since each of us is a unique human being, our preferences and tastes in scents are entirely different. However, we would be remiss if we neglected to honor the most well-liked and quickly-sold fragrances from House YSL. We’ve listed our five top picks that consistently top retailer bestseller lists below. Are you searching for your next excellent smell obsession? You’ve come to the right place, so keep scrolling.

5: Black Opium Yves Saint Laurent

The keynotes are pear, pink pepper, and orange blossom; coffee; jasmine; bitter almond; vanilla; patchouli; cashmere wood; and cedar.

Yves Saint Laurent’s new fragrance, Black Opium, is set to launch in September 2014. It is billed as a rock ‘n’ roll take on a classic scent that will accentuate the enigmatic, dark side of the YSL line. Olivier Cresp, Honorine Blanc, and master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Marie Salamagne worked together to create the composition. Large amounts of coffee notes predominate in the aroma. Pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli, and cedar are additional accords.

The perfume is packaged in a bottle reminiscent of the Opium collection’s final iteration. The bottle has a glam rock appearance thanks to its dark sequin decoration.

4: Paris Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent

The keynotes are iris, sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla, rose, violet, bergamot, and May rose.

Another dark horse scent from YSL that might be regarded as a diamond in the rough is Paris. It’s creamy and a little bit sweet, but the iris, rose, and violet botanical notes balance it out.

3. Y. Eau de Parfum Yves Saint Laurent

The keynotes are Apple, Ginger, and Bergamot; Sage; Juniper Berries and Geranium; Amberwood; Tonka Bean; Cedar; Vetiver; and Olibanum.

Department stores across the world will carry Yves Saint Laurent’s redesigned Y Eau de Toilette (2022), which features an updated design and a new formulation. Warm cedarwood, fresh geranium, and vivid lavender combine to create a mineral-woody scent for men.

A more potent iteration of the 2017 scent Y, which was targeted at a younger generation of creative and action-oriented men, Yves Saint Laurent unveiled Yves Saint Laurent Y Eau de Parfum recently. Launching in September 2018, Y Eau de Parfum is billed as “a seductive fragrance interpretation of Yves Saint Laurent’s iconic white T-shirt and black jacket.”

2. Libre Eau de Parfum by YSL Parfums

Keynotes: neroli essence, mandarin essence, orange blossom absolute from Morocco, French lavender essence, sambac jasmine absolute, Madagascar vanilla extract, cedar essence, ambergris accord, musk. When I used to work every day (do you remember that? ), Libre was most likely the perfume I used the most on my desk, not just by me, but by anybody who happened to walk by and was in the mood for a little spritz of something really lovely. It shares the same comforting heartbeat of orange blossom and lavender as the intense version we discussed previously, but instead of vanilla and orchid, musk accord keeps this one grounded.

1. Y. Le Parfum Yves Saint-Laurentent

Keynotes: grapefruit, apple accord, ginger, aldehydes, sage, lavender essence, geranium absolute, cedar, olibanum, tonka, patchouli essence.

Yves Saint Laurent’s Amber Fougere fragrance for men is called Y Le Parfum. In 2021, Y-Le Parfum made its debut. Apple, Aldehydes, Grapefruit, and Ginger are the top notes; Sage, Lavender, and Geranium are the middle notes; and Tonka Bean, Cedar, Olibanum, and Patchouli are the base notes.

How Yves Saint Laurent Perfume Started Perfuming

Yves Saint Laurent, who was born in Algeria in 1936, showed an early interest in fashion. In 1954, he started working for Christian Dior. At the age of 21, Saint Laurent took over as the house’s haute couture designer following the death of Dior in 1957.

In 1962, Saint Laurent started his clothing line. Vogue has dubbed him “arguably the industry’s greatest designer.” His fashion innovations are too many to mention here, but he popularized safari jackets, peasant blouses, and tuxedos for women. After the Yves Saint Laurent house was acquired by Gucci in 1999, he retired from ready-to-wear (the Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche label), and in 2002, he retired from haute couture. 2008 saw the passing of Saint Laurent.

YSL has a very successful fragrance line. Yves Saint Laurent Y (1964) was their debut fragrance. Paris (1983), Opium (1977), and Rive Gauche (1971) are arguably the most well-known fragrances. Yves Saint Laurent Pour Homme (1971), Kouros (1981), Jazz (1988), Champagne (1993) (famously renamed Yvresse after the label lost a lawsuit filed by the French wine industry), In Love Again (1998), Baby Doll (1999), Nu (2001), M7 (2002), Rive Gauche Pour Homme (2003), and Cinema (2004) are some of the other releases.

The Newest Fragrance Updates for YSL Perfumes

The best updates to YSL come in many ways, including the release of Libre (2019), a bold and empowering scent for women, and Y Eau de Parfum (2020), a modern and sophisticated fragrance for men. These new additions to the YSL fragrance line continue to showcase the brand’s commitment to creating iconic and timeless scents that capture the essence of luxury and style.

About the new women’s perfumes of Yves Saint Laurent, Libre (2019) is a standout fragrance that exudes confidence and empowerment. Its blend of lavender, orange blossom, and musk creates a captivating scent that is both feminine and daring. Additionally, Cinema (2004) offers a more glamorous and seductive option with its notes of almond, amaryllis, and vanilla. These new releases demonstrate YSL’s ability to cater to a range of preferences while maintaining their signature elegance and sophistication.
