WHAT IS IT?

The signature YSL Y cologne is a bold and woody men's fragrance, infused with sophisticated and revitalizing notes of sage and geranium and rounded out with a hint of sensual wood.

The bottle’s striking design reflects the fragrance’s edgy masculinity and contrast of darkness and light. Designed by Suzanne Dalton, the bottle is strong, heavy and elegant. Its sharp edges are defined by an intense dark black fade-out which gradually gives way to clear glass. A tribute to modernity and creativity.

THE INSPIRATION

The Yves Saint Laurent man has always been a dreamer and a risk-taker. An experimenter and a creator who never stops asking himself: WHY NOT? Confident, independent and instinct-driven, Y captures his spirit. A long-lasting, seductive fragrance for the accomplished, self-made man. It is an intense portrayal of masculinity in a sophisticated cologne inspired by the iconic Yves Saint Laurent "white t-shirt and black jacket" look.
