A few weeks ago I went shopping with my mom, my sister and my niece. Our last destination before going to get something to eat was Macy’s at Herald Square. My sister wanted the newest YSL fragrance but didn’t remember the name. So when we got to the fragrance section the hound dogs (that’s what I call the fragrance workers) were ready to attack. The first woman we saw happened to have the fragrance my sister wanted. The fragrance just arrived at Macy’s a few weeks ago so they were in heavy promo mode. Long story short we all purchased the same fragrance because sharing just wasn’t an option. So here are the details about YSL’s latest fragrance Manifesto.

MANIFESTO: THE WOMAN
A woman who believes in intuition, audacity and desire. Spontaneous and genuine, she prefers the exception to the rule. A new declaration of femininity, MANIFESTO, an artistic declaration of audacity.
MANIFESTO: THE FRAGRANCE
Be seduced by a bouquet of Jasmine punctuated by green notes and abold trail combining wood, vanilla and Tonka bean. The signature of a new declaration of femininity.
TOP NOTES – AUDACITY
The top notes open with an intensely modern and crisply Green Accord contrasted to the classic freshness
HEART NOTES – EXCESS
Lily of the Valley
The heart bursts with excessive femininity of Sambac Jasmine Absolute and the sparkle of Lily of the Valley.
BASE NOTES – DESIRE
The base notes arise with the sensuality of Sandalwood and Cedar, accentuated with a creamy touch of Tonka Bean.
MANIFESTO: THE BOTTLE AN ARTISTIC DECLARATION OF AUDACITY
AUDACITY-The cap inspired by couture fabric.
EXCESS-The preciously cut amethyst gem.
BASE NOTES-DESIRE-The silhouette of the bottle inspired by an Yves Saint Laurent sketch.
This is not a fragrance that I would typically go for, but it smelled wonderful on me. I have yet to master the different types of notes, but I know what I like. I am not a huge fan of vanilla, but the vanilla in this fragrance is not overpowering. The wearability is amazing. Some fragrances wear off rather quickly but this is long lasting. Every time I wear this fragrance I get tons of compliments. I like that the fragrance is feminine, yet strong, but not overpowering. This fragrance is definitely very flirty. I’m used to more floral fragrances, but I like the contrast of using this during the spring. Another reason that I purchased this fragrance was because of the shape of the bottle. It was so sophisticated and regal. It had to find a home on my dresser.
It is available in 50ml or 90ml Eau de Parfum and range from $82-$102. To purchase click here
