YS•UZAC is a new Swiss niche line founded in 2011 by Vincent Micotti. They debut with four fragrances: Lale, Pohadka, Métaboles and Monodie.
Lale (shown) ~ "A crystal ballade of white bouquet, piquant Saffron and discreet leather. Inspired by a rare and delicate flower from east Himalaya -Wintersweet- which blossoms when the first snow falls. The movement starts with a simple, and invigorating overtone from Bergamot and Sweet Orange, with a hint of warm white tea, enveloped by elegant Osmanthus and Rose petals. Gold Saffron, together with Pink Pepper and dry Apricot unfold a fascinating atmosphere with a dimension of velvet leather. Composed by an ambery balsamic accord, the subtle animalistic notes add warmth and texture to an imaginary world of snow and petals." [sic]
Pohadka ~ "An unsuspected improvisation between fresh cut grass and faintly powdered blond Tobacco. Accentuated by the vivid color of Immortelle the transparent ever-shifting opening implies a secretive sunshine, sketching an aquarelle painted warm sand. The tantalizing yet intangible note of Jasmine draws an introduction between crushed fresh herbs and soulful leather undertones of smoked vanilla."
Métaboles ~ "The elaborate character of the fragrance opens its phrase with unique inviting notes of spicy fresh Tomato Twigs and elegant Geranium. The presence of deep black Licorice, and Black Pepper extends the luminous opening into a passionate, paradoxical personality. A minimum dose of Raspberry honey harmonizes with a dash of intense ambery Labdanum, which guides the journey to a soft, yet wild sensual world of musky white wood..."
Monodie ~ "An intoxicating, extravagant vivace play with an ultra feminine mood. Opening with a handsome and delicious note of Eau de vie de Mirabelle, for a spontaneous modern take on the minimalism. Sweet and radiant, a sparkling overtone of tender dark yellow Mirabelle infused with Pink Pamplemousse create a bouncy joyfulness impression. A slightly powdery-caramelized Freesia, together with an unexpected hint of crisp Rhubarb and green Galbanum, nuance the undertone of an assertive Sandalwood. An alcoholic melody to dazzle the star of the night." [sic]
