Yves Saint Laurent has launched three new fragrances in the Le Vestiaire Des Parfums series. The Édition Couture scents are named for Paris street addresses associated with the fashion house: 24 Rue de l’Université, 37 Rue de Bellechasse and 6 Place Saint Sulpice.
24 Rue de l’Université (shown) ~ "...refers to the Parisian hôtel particulier which houses the Saint Laurent ateliers. This calm and light-filled building is where the fashion house’s new designs are crafted each season. The studio’s atmosphere has been channelled by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin with notes of sandalwood, suede, cedarwood and incense."
37 Rue de Bellechasse ~ "...a fragrance steeped in the ambiance of the fashion house’s new headquarters, located in the 18th century Cistercian Penthemont Abbey. Cécile Matton and Julie Massé have created a mysterious perfume with nodes of oud wood, incense, benzoin, iris and musk."
6 Place Saint Sulpice ~ "...the address of one of its oldest stores. This fragrance, developed by Carlos Benaim, has notes of labdanum, leather, saffron, bergamot, lavender and tonka bean."
24 Rue de l’Université, 37 Rue de Bellechasse and 6 Place Saint Sulpice are available in 125 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be found now at Colette in Paris. They will go into wider distribution in December.
