YSL Manifesto Fragrance Launch

You probably know by now that YSL holds a very, very special place in my heart. It was the brand that ignited my passion for luxury beauty when I was just a teenager, and I am proud to say that I bought the Touche Eclat Illuminating pen when it first launched 20 years ago. I was 17!! I didn't eat at university so that I could buy that stuff!!

A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to attend the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation launch in Paris (it was like a dream) and today I had a little London YSL reunion for the launch of YSL's latest, and milestone, fragrance, Manifesto.

And guess what? I love the fragrance! Of course I do! It is absolutely beautiful with stunning jasmine as its floral highlight.

I love jasmine because it is fresh and bright, but it has a darker softness which perfectly resonates with YSL as a brand.

It has amazing green and crisp top notes of lily of the valley and blackcurrant, and a beautiful base of cedar wood, sandalwood, soft vanilla and tonka bean. It is the perfect amount of vanilla which is wonderfully balanced by creamy jasmine and tangy blackcurrant.

I am also a massive fan of the bottle. The chiselled  gold cap is stunning, and the glass is cinched in at the 'waist' by a purple jewel, like the silhouette of a woman. Love it!

This is a really importance fragrance for YSL - a new vision of femininity that encapsulates the YSL woman in a young, modern way.

YSL launched Rive Gauche in 1971, Opium in 1977, and Paris in 1981. Manifesto is YSL's 2012 tribute to the modern, unique, inspiring and inspired YSL woman.

And talking of inspired and inspiring women, cue the red headed goddess that is Jessica Chastain, Manifesto's beautiful ambassador. Look at this stunning shot from the upcoming print advertising campaign. I love her!!




Jessica Chastain is an incredibly talented actress recently recognised at Cannes 2012 for her role in the film, Lawless.

YSL's Manifesto EDP will launch nationwide 19th September 2012 - 30ml £44, 50ml £60 and 90ml £85. This year's launch will also include a shower gel, with an extension of the range in 2013.

I am on another YSL high!!!
