Life Cycle, Wake, and Strength
YSL Y EDP is really enticing and has a wonderful scent. It has a lot of similarities to other popular scents, but a feature that sets it apart is that it uses distinctive notes. The apple, bergamot, and sage notes are the best ones. The crispness, the fresh, alluring aroma, together make it an excellent perfume.
When you apply it, you are welcomed by fresh notes of ginger and bergamot which are enhanced by the scent of green juicy apples. Then, juniper and sage kick in for masculinity. Followed by his comes the elegance of lavender and geranium. These are two of the notes that are considered the heart of the Y scent. Sensual wood and warm tanka beans are uncovered followed by smoky vetiver. Everything is so divine!
Some people have criticized YSL Y EDP and said it’s safe and familiar. Despite that, men still love it because it’s a reliable fragrance. The fresh, woody, spicy, and fougere touches make it every man’s smell. Just be sure not to overapply it. The longer it lasts on your skin, the more the notes are going to change and you will love every bit of the scent.
