Yves Saint Laurent Y Perfume

Yves Saint Laurent Y - eau de toilette for women

Y by YSL - "The top note 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." --yslbeautyus.com
