Inspired by the emblematic creations of Monsieur Saint Laurent, LE VESTIAIRE DES PARFUMS is a collection of unisex fragrances that each interprets a centrepiece of the couturier’s wardrobe. TUXEDO, CABAN, SAHARIENNE, BLOUSE, CAFTAN, TRENCH and now, the new addition GRAIN DE POUDRE: a signature scent with couture sensibility.
In the mid-1960s, Yves Saint Laurent borrowed the finely grained fabric grain de poudre from men’s suits giving it an unexpected femininity. A weapon of seduction: subtle yet electric.
To translate the unique grain de poudre texture into a fragrance, YSL Beauté chose the most delicate of flowers: the violet. Familiar and reassuring, it evokes a graceful elegance that stands the test of time. The powdery sweetness of violet is paired with the unexpected freshness of sage, unveiling a crisp energy, balanced with notes of coriander and black pepper giving a spicy bite to the scent.
Spray onto your skin, ensuring you spray the warmer areas of your body with the perfume: the insides of the wrist and below the earlobes.
