A fragrance completes your look like an invisible accessory. Personally speaking, it is a daily must for me and I admit that I am a perfume addict. Therefore I was over the moon today when a magic box filled with Yves Saint Laurent’s new Oriental Collection, a trio of scents celebrating the splendours of the East, NOBLE LEATHER, SUPREME BOUQUET and MAJESTIC ROSE, arrived at my doorstep. All three extremely yummy!
Between Conquest & Surrender
“The potent and deep scent of leather fervently states its case and whispers an elegant, raw and carnal sensuality. The ambery wood accord embraces languid vanilla and the earthy scents of patchouli before giving way to intermingling tanned leathers. Enhanced by a dash of bright saffron notes and softened by the candied sweetness of the dried fruit accord, this skin-deep fragrance leaves an unforgettable impression.”
SUPREME BOUQUET (My favorite!)
Between Exaltation & Serenity
“The radiant burst of a bouquet of white flower, a blend of whimsical tuberose, exotic ylang and enigmatic jasmine. Their blossoms drenched in luscious fruit and animal scents, fully spread their opulence. As a counterpoint, the vibrancy of the ambery wood accord, musks and patchouli is an invitation to serenity.”
Between Opulence & Mystery
“The dense blossom of May rose releases its majestic seduction through delicious honey-scented notes. The texture of its petals is warmed by spicy and vibrant saffron accord. The flower is drenched in notes of raspberry and is then lost in the darker folds of a balsamic oud wood accord, blended with a boldly smoked essence of guaiac wood.”
The Yves Saint Laurent Oriental Collection (Noble Leather, Supreme Bouquet and Majestic Rose) will be available mid June 2013, as 80 ml Eau de Parfum, for CHF 250.00 exclusively in Switzerland at Jelmoli Zurich, Globus Basel and Geneva.
