Fragrance description Yves Saint Laurent YIngredients

- fougère composition
- ideal for both day and evening wear
- endorsed by Adam Levine
Composition of the fragrance
First, you’ll notice a sharp dose of freshness provided by the combination of bergamot and ginger. It is then contrasted with the juicy note of apple accompanied by aldehydes and elemi balsam. The heart will captivate you with its notes of sage and juniper joined by lavender to create a distinctly masculine scent, enhanced by geranium absolute. The sensual drydown of the fragrance combines vetiver, amber wood, frankincense and tonka bean.
Story of the fragrance
Yves Saint Laurent Y represents a man who has already made his dreams into reality, but it doesn’t stop him from reaching for new goals. He’s not afraid to face challenges that lie ahead and give them his all. He always strives to be better and surpass his own limits.
