One of my male friends was complimenting my site and had one request: to please blog about products that were appealing to men too. And because I do appreciate all comments and suggestions, I’m going to take his advice. So here it comes.
I recently had the opportunity to sample Yves Saint Laurent’s new Eau de Toilette Spray for men, which is the design house’s newest take on their classic L’Homme (their YSL La Nuit De L’Homme is very yummy sexy, too). The fragrance represents “a sensual man who revels in his freedom and whose charisma and charm are contagious. He is dynamic, free, and ambitious.” And then sums it up in three words: “free spirit. influencer. adventurer.” I’m sorry, but I want a man who smells like that! Yum!
The fragrance’s top notes are basil, violet leaf and notes of nutmeg and pink pepper, mixed with deeper notes of woody vetiver, patchouli, and leather. The price range goes from $45 US Dollars for a 1.3 oz. bottle, to $75 for the 3.3 oz.
The face of the fragrance is French dancer and Natalie Portman’s husband Benjamin Millepied. Here’s the video their ad:
