Y by Yves Saint Laurent is not the story of one man but of a whole generation: a creative generation of men who dare to follow their passions and carve their own paths. From inspiration, through hard work and collaboration, to self-accomplishment and success.
Y EAU DE PARFUM for men is a light & dark fougère fragrance, featuring fresh citrus and aromatic notes followed by a deeper intensity of sensual woods. It perfectly complements the multifaceted personality traits of the Y man.
The start of the scent is fresh, a tangy and explosive duet of bergamot and ginger. A freshness contrasted and emphasized by a fruity, juicy and crunchy green apple. Sage and juniper redraw a powerful masculinity boosted by elegant notes of geranium absolute to provide freshness and contrast. The background of the scent is more intense, more sensual and more masculine with the addition of vetiver that reinforces the mysterious depth of olibanum and tonka bean.

Y, the men’s fragrance capturing the essence of the YSL modern man.
Y is a testament to the YSL modern man. A man who dares to follow his passions and carve his own path. From inspiration, through hard work and collaboration, to self-accomplishment and success. A man confident to take all of life’s challenges.
For the authentic and bold, YSL Beauty creates Y: the fragrance for those who dare to ask themselves ‘why not’.
With both light and dark fougère facets, Y Eau de Parfum blends elegance, sensuality and strength, echoing the multifaceted personality of the YSL man.
Woody and aromatic, the original Eau de Parfum opens with fresh notes of bergamot and ginger enhanced by juicy green apple for powerful freshness. Sage and juniper bring masculinity contrasted with the elegance of geranium absolute and lavender, two floral notes at the heart of the Y olfactive signature. At the base, a mysterious blend of sensual wood, frankincense and warm tonka beans is uncovered, reinforced by smokey vetiver for intensity.

The Y bottle is an expression of modernity. A masculine and sharp design, boldly cut out with the signature Y logo. Thick glass surrounds the crystal blue juice within, emblematic of the urban backdrop to the modern man.
Y Eau de Parfum sees the classic Y bottle remastered into a deep and contrasting design. Dark sits alongside the light as the glass seamlessly transitions from an opaque black to a sky blue. This tells the story of sophistication and duality; a man confident in his success yet always willing to go further.
