Scent for the Accomplished Millennial Gent
One of my favourite gift ideas year-round are fragrances, These luxury items are always well received, and I’m yet to meet a person (or a man) who doesn’t enjoy smelling their best. While not all fragrances are suited to younger gentlemen, Yves Saint Laurent has released its latest scent for men specifically for the younger generation - millennials - which is bold, masculine and modern just like the gentleman who would wear it.
Yves Saint Laurent Y has been produced with the creative gentleman in mind who is self-accomplished and carves his own path. A Fougeres style scent was chosen for this man which blends a touch of green and woody accords with a soft sweetness to create a new take on a classic style.
Fragrance notes :
Top: White Aldehydes, Bergamot, Ginger and
Middle: Geranium Absolute
Base: Fir Balsam, Ambergris and Incense
What I love about this fragrance is its familiarity, it reminds me of the original L’Homme scent with a modern twist. Y is perfect for wearing during spring and summer and is well suited to most occasions. The bottle features a minimalistic and luxurious design. The bottle is then sliced through with an eye-catching metal ‘Y’. I would recommend this scent for a gentleman who has an appreciation for luxury in his mid-twenties up to the age of 40.
Yves Saint Laurent Y 60ml AUD 109, 100ml AUD 149. Available now from Yves Saint Laurent counters in Myer and David Jones department stores nationally.
