Yves Saint Laurent has launched Rouge Velours, a new fragrance in the luxury Vestiaire des Parfums series.
In 1964, Yves Saint Laurent created his first ever fragrance, paying homage to the beautiful French women he dressed. Fast forward to today, and the label still crafts olfactory delights such as the Rouge Velours eau de parfum. The scent expertly blends earthy and woody patchouli with the sweetness and freshness of roses, creating an overall complex and heady perfume. We’ll be spritzing ours onto our pulse points before wandering up the Champs-Élysées for a spot of shopping.
Additional notes include white tea, pink pepper, jasmine, orris, vetiver and musks.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Velours is available at Selfridges in the UK, in 75 or 125 ml Eau de Parfum.
Jeez, that’s quite a quote. Is that directly from YSL?
Well, it’s from Selfridges. No way of knowing if they got it from YSL or made it up themselves.
Sounds lovely and I have no doubt it’s elegant and well done. But do we really need another patchouli/rose combo? Just not sure how it’s different from others like POAL from Malle.
2nd. I love this category, but it seems everyone has to have one.
There are even more oud + rose at this point, but yeah.
