Ever since I first smelled this fragrance, I’ve been eager to buy it. I love perfumes, love my collection but yet the last perfume that touched me was Serge Lutens’ Rahat Loukum. I always try out new perfumes but it just didn’t get to me. Until this one…it was love from first smell. And yes I was more than happy to receive it for Christmas! Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto is today’s hero!.

YSL manifesto

Notes of YSL Manifesto:

Top notes: black currant, bergamot, green notes

Middle notes: lily-of-the-valley, jasmine sambac

Base notes: cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, tonka bean.

Basically why I love this fragrance is because I feel the base notes directly after spraying. And as I am in deep love with vanilla, tonka bean and jasmine this fragrance was made for me. It is great because it makes masculine to Ka bean sound sexy and feminine. It is great because I sense vanilla but it’s not sugar-sweet. Jasmine is also sensible but not too flowery as I hate flower fragrances. I would describe it as an oriental vanilla scent.

Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto is an adult sexy scent. For me it’s good both for night and day, it makes me feel desired, sexy, magnificent, chique. It stays for quite a long time, it is neither shouting too loud nor too close on the skin: the fragrance is something perfect in between.

I love most of Yves Saint Laurent’s perfumes and this is definitely not an exception. Love it!
