Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Collector Edition

Yves-Saint-Laurent-Mon-Paris-Collector-Edition-2020-Visual-01

French Maison Yves Saint Laurent will include one more collector edition to the Mon Paris collection. The scent remains unchanged while the flacon is decorated with a new bow and ‘overflowing’ with silver shimmer. Yves Saint Laurent invites us to indulge in the dizziness of crazy love again, with the white chypre floral scent of Parisian charm.

Created by Oliver Cresp, Dora Baghriche and Harry Fremont, the top notes of the composition depict the beginning of love, the middle notes describe the burning love, while the base notes reflect the feeling of infatuation portrayed as romantic love pleasure.

Mon Paris Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent is the timeless fragrance of a free and passionate woman. A white chypre with challenging sensuality. Let yourself be captivated by the vertigo of Crazy Love.

The sweetness of red fruit (strawberry and raspberry) combined with the rich, fruity notes of pears and juicy citruses (orange, mandarin, and bergamot) are cooled by the Calone molecule, which reproduces light, watery, and airy aromas with hints of watermelon in the opening of the composition.

Datura flower dominates the heart’s white bouquet combined of peonies, orange blossom, and Chinese and Sambac jasmine, while the base creates the rich blend of patchouli heart, Indonesian patchouli leaves, white musk, ambroxan, cedar, moss, and vanilla, intensifying its chypre character.

After dropping a range of branded accessories comprised of balls, tennis rackets, yoga matts, brass dumbells and more, now you can have sex but make it fashion with the help of Yves Saint Laurent’s new line of chic couture condoms.

Announced by Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello via Instagram, the branded condoms will be available exclusively at Saint Laurent’s Parisian concept store, Rive Droite. The condoms will be packaged in six different designs ranging from a black-and-white checkered pattern to leopard prints and gold heart emblems.

On the heels of a star-studded Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 show, Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello teased the new campaign on his Instagram. To accompany the release Saint Laurent launched the campaign ‘The Love Affair’, which was shot by famed photographer Juergen Teller. In the image shared by Vaccarello, Polish model Anja Rubik is seen alongside a ‘full frontal’ heavily-inked artist and supermodel David Alexander Flinn, but Instagram appears to have removed it.

Yves Saint Laurent and Dua Lipa unveil a new fragrance, Libre

Yves-Saint-Laurent-Libre-Banner-02.jpg

French Maison Yves Saint Laurent is launching a new pillar fragrance. Yves Saint Laurent Libre is designed for strong, bold and free women who experiment with their freedom, as stated by the French Maison.

Free. That’s one word that defines Yves Saint Laurent. Always on edge. Experimenting. Breaking boundaries. Turning the tuxedo into provocative women’s evening wear in the sixties. For today’s women, freedom is the ultimate luxury. It’s a state of mind. A way of playing by your own rules.

The idea of freedom, as an important part of the DNA of this fashion house, served as the inspiration for the new concept. The fashion designer himself is seen as revolutionary by dressing women in suits and safari jackets and transparent wide-fitting blouses, and he was surrounded by women who fought for their freedom and position.

Yves-Saint-Laurent-Libre-Flacon-Flowers

Created by perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaïm, the composition is developed to contain fougere elements. The duo represents two sides of the same coin, reversing traditionally masculine and feminine accords to create Libre. A reinvention of the floral perfume, it combines lavender essence from France with the sensuality of Moroccan orange blossom, for a unique floral fusion complemented by a daring note of musk accord.

Top Notes: tangerine oil, lavender oil, blackcurrant, petitgrain
Heart notes: jasmine, orange blossom, lavender oil
Base notes: cedarwood oil, ambergris, musk, vanilla extract

A gender-bending riff on fougère, the traditionally masculine fragrance category that is heavy on herbaceous lavender and earthy oakmoss. Thanks to an infusion of hyperconcentrated Moroccan orange blossom, and a proprietary note exclusive to Yves Saint Laurent called – wait for it – Diva Lavender, which isolates the freshest elements of the aromatic purple flower, any overt muskiness is effectively tempered.

 

Yves-Saint-Laurent-Libre-Flacon-Designs.png

The bottle was designed by Suzanne Dalton, who reinterpreted the Yves Saint Laurent logo for Libre. Here, the familiar ‘YSL’ Cassandra logo is flipped to its side, giving the bottle an unusual yet alluring shape. The flacon is a couture statement, it reflects the same gender-bending duality of the scent and also references the sleek tailoring of an Yves Saint Laurent suit.

Intrepid opposites are outstandingly attractive – the bottle design defends this ethos.

The new campaign is fronted singer songwriter Dua Lipa, who was recently named as a Next Generation Leader by Time Magazine. Known for hits such as ‘New Rules’ and ‘One Kiss’, Dua Lipa was nominated for five different categories during the 2018 Brit awards. She won the awards for ‘Best British Female Solo Artist’ and ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ to name just a few.

To be free for a woman in 2019 goes without asking, we live life by our own rules.

Dua Lipa

The campaign film was directed by filmmaker Nabil Elderkin who said: Dua Lipa is an inspired choice to embody this boldly defiant woman”. He added, “Young and edgy, with an uncompromising sense of self and a willingness to speak her truth, she is exactly the sort of ambassador who can exude a perfectly calibrated blend of liberated sensuality and inner strength that embodies the no compromise, write-your-own-rules YSL woman”.

Dua Lipa is Yves Saint Laurent newest fragrance ambassador

Dua-Lipa-Yves-Saint-Laurent-02.jpg

A Next Generation Idol: Since her debut album in 2017, Dua Lipa has amassed a loyal and large following that she has become the most streamed female artist in the world. She has sold over 40 million singles and over 3.4 million albums worldwide, is a Grammy winner and a contemporary style icon  – all by the age of 23. Now the singer, songwriter is to follow in the footsteps of Cara Delevingne and Jessica Chastain by becoming Yves Saint Laurent newest fragrance ambassador.

I connect so much with the campaign because of its fearlessness. I stand for the importance of being confident, strong and powerful and of not compromising on who you are, what you do and what you believe in, of always being proud of the things you do, and I feel that goes down very well with the same philosophy behind Yves Saint Laurent’s new fragrance.

Dua Lipa

It has been Lipa’s ability to move comfortably across style genres, while still retaining a distinct sense of self, that has made her the perfect partner for Yves Saint Laurent. As the statement from the French Maison reads: “She embodies today’s liberated, no-compromise, write-your-own-rules YSL woman. Because her fierce brand of freedom and sensuality expresses the fiery legacy of Yves Saint Laurent”.

Dua Lipa’s collaboration with the French Maison will begin by being the face of a new fragrance, to be unveiled later this summer.

Yves Saint Laurent Y fragrance film starring Adam Levine

YVES-SAINT-LAURENT-Y-MAN-FRAGRANCE-FILM-STARRING-ADAM-LEVINE

French Maison’s Yves Saint Laurent Y fragrance for men is the story of a man, but of a men generation: creative and doers they dare to follow their passions and intuitions; to ask themselves the right questions & create their own path to self-accomplishment.

Yves Saint Laurent’s scent for men catapults as Singer/Musician Adam Levine stars in the new film.

Created by legendary perfumer Dominique Ropion, the scent inspired by two staples of the masculine wardrobe for Y. A white & dark masculine fougere, Y is the scent of freedom to dream, dare & live to be accomplished. Fougeres are among the most prevalent families in masculine fragrance. A touch green, a touch woody and topped with a soft balsamic sweetness, Y offers a bold new take on the traditional fougere.

The flacon is sharp and minimalist in its construction but keeps a strong creative signature with the surprising Y notch on the back. The eau de toilette represents the dual personality of those men: clear & bright on the top notes while strong & sensual on the heart & base notes.

Adam Levine is fronting Yves Saint Laurent’s Y fragrance campaign and now he is the official international ambassador for the cologne.

Yves Saint Laurent Y is available as 50 and 100ml Eau de Toilette. Come into the beautiful worlf of Yves Saint Laurent.
