A tribute to the creativity of Yves Saint-Laurent

Also, as if to pay tribute to his work, the Yves Saint-Laurent house decided to develop, in 2012, a fragrance called Manifesto.

A tribute to the creativity of Yves Saint -Laurent

Manifesto is a fragrance that has been thought of as a manifesto of femininity seen through the eye of Yves Saint-Laurent. It is aimed at all women around the world. In addition, as Marguerite Duras said so well, “Saint-Laurent women came out of harems, castles and even suburbs. They run the streets, the subways, the Prisunics, the Stock Exchange. It is therefore to this always very elegant diversity that Manifesto addresses itself. This juice is intended for women who think that nothing great can be experienced without passion. It is the essence of admired and desired femininity, day and night. It is a subtle and complex fragrance, just like Yves Saint-Laurent himself. Thus, each woman finds herself in him as he displays diversity. It is a juice sewn up with contradictions, excess, daring and intuition. With him, nothing is played out in artifices or pretenses. Manifesto is a concentrate of style, beauty and passion. It is ideally designed to make you dizzy!

The powdery elegance of Manifesto

Manifesto is basically built around the jasmine flower. This one is famous for its white petals. It is a luminous and regressive plant, approaching in many points the freshness of lily of the valley. The floral accord of Manifesto is enhanced at its start with vegetal notes and blackcurrant buds. Its background is more addictive and smoother. In addition, Manifesto leaves behind a scent of sandalwood, vanilla and tonka bean. What’s more, its appetizing and addicting side is further structured by the oriental elegance of cedar wood. Everything has been developed over multiple trials by two talented perfumers. In addition, it is the work of Anne Flipo and Loc Dong. On the aesthetic side, it is contained in a sort of slender prism capturing the light. Manifesto is like a talisman that is brandished with pride. Its center is surrounded by a kind of amethyst-colored jewelry. This one is carved like a diamond and echoes the gold-colored cabochon of this bottle. The whole is chiseled like a piece of jewelry and completes the design of this perfume with luxury and elegance.

Manifesto, the femininity manifesto by YSL

If Yves Saint Laurent is known to be (and to have been) a provocateur, he nevertheless remains one of the greatest creators of our time. He was the first designer to have revolutionized women’s fashion, in particular with the tuxedo, the pea coat, the women’s suit or even the Saharan. In 1971, he imagines his first perfume. In 1978, he imagined his first makeup line. Innovative, avant-garde, Yves Saint Laurent has notably provoked several scandals, mainly when he poses naked for one of his perfumes. In 2012, the brand presented “Manifesto”, a fascinating fragrance.

Manifesto, the free woman of today

In 2012, YSL presents” Manifesto “, an ultra feminine and seductive fragrance, but more than anything,” Manifesto “reveals the freedom of women, that of our time. Since 1966, when YSL presents the female version of the tuxedo, the designer has never ceased to defend or even encourage women to tear the shackles in which they were locked . In this sense, Manifesto pays tribute to all the struggles that women have led to obtain their total liberation. About this fragrance, the YSL house affirms “The Manifesto woman has an attitude, a burst of laughter, a tone of voice, a presence, but above all femininity … “” Manifesto “also embodies know-how. of the brand and its fame, the power of YSL possesses, to create products that sublimate the woman again and again. Haute couture has therefore here, all its place. Like the YSL haute couture collections, the “Manifesto” woman is daring, invents her own codes, and says “yes” to beauty and mystery.

The mysterious notes of Manifesto

It is two talented perfumers, Anne Flipo and Loc Dong, who are at the origin of this excessive fragrance. The “Manifesto” fragrance is both vegetal and tangy, and the presence of white flowers gives its personality a very special feminine beauty. “Manifesto” takes off on green notes and their freshness. These are associated with the fruity and sweet notes of blackcurrant, offering a tangy appearance. The heart of “Manifesto” is ultra floral and feminine thanks to white flowers, jasmine and lily of the valley. Finally, the base trail evolves towards an oriental sensuality with the presence of cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, and tonka bean. Jessica Chastain, a beautiful American actress, is the face of the entire Manifesto collection. As for the bottle, it is a work of art in itself. The nectar of “Manifesto” is anchored in a prism capturing the light successfully. The bottle looks like a talisman with a belt that has been thought of as a jewel. The belt is dressed in a vibrant purple color. The whole is surmounted by a chiseled gold cabochon. The “Manifesto” setting has been designed in such a way as to combine luxury, elegance and enchantment.

The first fragrance in a magnificent collection, “Manifesto” highlights all the struggles that women have had to lead for their freedom. Today’s woman is feminine, elegant and very seductive.
