Y EAU DE PARFUM captures the spirit of the YSL man, embodied by Y's iconic ambassador, rock legend Lenny Kravitz. An experimenter and a creator who never stops asking himself: WHY NOT?


Y EAU DE PARFUM, the new take on the sexy iconic clean signature of the Y franchose. The absolute strength of a dark fougère, more intense, more powerful, more addictive than ever.
A long-lasting fragrance matching the vibrant French lavander against the strength of the American cerdarwood, two ingredients, exclusively selected for the YSL Beauté. This forceful olfactive statement is underscored by the minty radiance of the iconic geranium & deep, sensual beat of incense.


To echo the absolute intensity of Y EAU DE PARFUM, the edgy Y bottle designed by Suzanne Dalton dresses top to bottom in bold black lacquer. More than a colour: A statement. The fine-tuned instrument of a thrilling olfactory performance...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Compliment Getter this is sweet, fresh, aromatic and woody. If I was to sum this up in one sentence it would be “Versatile crowd pleaser that will garner compliments”. It opens with a crisp green apple note with some freshness from the bergamot. There are hints of juniper Berry and sage in the middle that gives it a masculine & aromatic feel(Gin is made from juniper berries). It dries down to a woody base. This is a versatile fragrance with a high compliment factor that is suitable for most settings(work or casual). I will definitely add this to my recommended list of fragrances to gift to someone who is looking for one fragrance that does it all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasant, fresh, appealing but not head turning! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received two samples of this fragrances and i tried it on my hubby. The smell is definitely pleasant, no one can say it does not smell good. As a woman, i liked it. The use of the sage is actually quite interesting. It is fresh and smell good! From my hubby’s point of you, it smells good for when you need to use a safe fragrance. But unfortunatly it is missing something a bit more punchy and creating the irresistible factor, some more musk or personality. It is actually quite a good thing if you want to buy it as a present to someone as they will likely like it. It last few hours though, not all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Y - Oh why I say!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got a sample of this and will definitely be buying a bottle of ‘Y’ for my husband. It has the most amazing citrus and aromatic scent without being too overpowering and comes in an attractive bottle. The scent lasts all day as I could still smell it on my husband upon his return from work. It’s such a great smell that will appeal to men that invest time in choosing there aftershave. I’m not a YSL fragrance fan but this is an absolute winner. My husband loved it so much he went online to check it was launched. This will also appeal to the younger generation as my 22yr old niece thought it smelt gorgeous. Great Job YSL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manly but not Overpowering [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm not the usual cologne wearer. Some scents are not the greatest. Others don't smell manly. I'm very selective.Once i find a scent that I like, I stay with it. So I was apprehensive to try Y Eau de Parfum - Native. I was pleasantly surprised! First, it smelled manly. Not fruity or flowery. Secondly, It was subtle. That is important! Some body sprays and colognes can stink it up to high heaven with their odor. Y Eau de Parfum did not! Third, women seem to like it! A couple of women I work with said that I smelled nice while wearing it. I take that as a win! I would definitely recommend this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I usually really like Yves Saint Laurent cologne. I have a few different bottles of different fragrances. Something about this one didn't really smell manly. I had to double check I was sent the men's cologne. I would say it last a couple of hours on. But nothing amazing in terms of how long the scent lasts. Everyone has a different noise so sent could smell different for someone else. Additionally cologne on skim can smell different the smelling it on a piece of paper or in the air. I would recommend trying it before buying it. Know a lot of people will still love this scent, just not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great place to start! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I gotta start this review off by noting that I'm really not the type of person who uses cologne. For one, we're in a pandemic and I don't really go out. Secondly, I'm pretty casual with my look and all. Still though, I figured... why not give this a try? Well, let me tell you this. When I used the cologne, I just felt different. Like I had some special swag. Like I was James Bond. I felt distinguished. Now, this cologne hasn't made me a millionaire or famous (yet), but for someone who isn't ordinarily a wearer of such things, this is a great place to start and get into the cologne feeling!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cooling Scent [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I won't pretend to be a scent expert; I don't necessarily detect hidden notes of the different ingredients. I just know if I like a fragrance or not. This one I thought was just okay. It was not too sweet, nor too musky so I guess it fell somewhere in the middle spectrum. Too me it smelled a touch peppery (even though that isn't an ingredient) and some like cool water so I would likely qualify it more as a summer scent. It does remain noticeable and long lasting which is a plus. But the scent smells so much familiar to others I have tried and for that I do not give it any bonus for originality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attention Grabber [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Due to COVID I haven't been out of the house much. I had a doctors appointment yesterday and a few errands to run. I sprayed myself before leaving the house because I wanted to smell nice since I was finally able to leave the house. Boy what a great decision. I had a few people ask me what I was wearing, which was weird because I didn't spray in much and I made sure to be 6ft away from people. The really cute nurse asked what I was wearing because she wanted to get some for her fiancée. I was happy to share with her what I was wearing. I will definitely be purchasing a bottle for myself.
