Exactly: Y all the bashing ?
Because something 'only' ...according to personal taste, of course ...GUT smells ?
And e.g. a provocatively named, but actually only vera..lberndes likewise - more thin-fruity little water like 'I am Trash' by Etwat Libre D'Orange is tried at fantasy price to bring to the niche conoisseur ? :)
So: very spontaneous, but what must be, must be :-), speak:
I -must - just take countermeasures here :)! Yes, I generally also love more classic-complex scents, with a clear, interesting and always new and multi-facetted perfume.
Example man :), Versace L'Homme ...Example woman, yes, the cheap, but not cheap 'Gloria', by G. Vanderbilt ...
But it doesn't always have to be the Mega-Wummser of e.g. the 1980's, a rather linear, spicy, wellbeing fruity alcoholic summer water, like D&G's L'Imperatrice or Mugler's Womanity inspire me ... because I am a woman, yes :)
Now however ...Why some more words to Y? ...Because !
Because I find the fragrance MIRACULOUS first thing. Yeah, right. Because I can't even get enough of him at the moment, it may be because he also fits so well to the current dream autumn weather. Starting with a hint of splashy freshness of summer still, followed by late apple harvest, ripen us sweet, in slightly smoky clear autumn air, ending in the evening in front of the fireplace, still surrounded by light freshness, sweetness, incense. Definitive and -pure- masculine, by the way, I wouldn't wear it, but I would like to snuggle up to those whose equally cuddly sweaters, for example, can smell of it, and not just the sweater ....ups ...:)
I now read the chemical broth brewed without love everywhere here ...hmm, hmm ...Can't agree.
So after a long time I did several taster rounds through a local turquoise a few weeks ago ...stayed exclusively in the men's department, so to speak ...sprayed on dear old acquaintances like Aramis and Zino, yes, yes ...memories ...'just good!'.
Versace L'Homme, who -naturally- shimmers in innumerable colours in contrast to the tone-soft 'Y', is unfortunately already missed everywhere in perfumeries today, it remains the duty free or online purchase. What is ok, since known, proven, persistently very beloved.
But now ...after all the stupid Chanels, also Dylan-Blues and Erosse :-) really -absolut- left me cold ...the grip to YSl's 'Y' ...and also to the perfume, by the way.
And ...mmmmmmhhhh ...hey: WOW, that smells GUUUUT . But no, Momenterl times :), what is so badly scolded, therefore, rather again completely slowly :) After one more round through the shop, this time with a heartfelt test, but still with counter-tests of all already listed 'blue' candidates ...Bleu de Chanel, once again only ...shrugging my shoulders, leaves me so deeermassen cold. Dylan Blue ...choke ...:) ...Eros? Sticky vanilla apple sweeteners from sticky tester ....unpleasant. No and no ...
But still 'Y' on the test strip smells soft, warm, soft and my senses say again only- GOOD - ...
So back to him, all the other test strips and also the first strip with already Y in the 'barrel' and again two, three new strips sprayed quite generously and ...and not contamined with even one other fragrance taken home: Let's see if my nose is SO wrong ...the scent from my jacket pocket in the car is already getting unpleasant for me, or at home then something of 'about' ...
And then the positive surprise:
Y LONGES beautiful, pleasant, not annoying, smells cuddly, warm, soft -good .........and that, surprise two, about days, a good week long clearly perceptible in the bathroom, where I deposited the papers, short -before- trash can :-)
And not only does 'Y' simply not annoy partout not, laugh ...but ...I can not get enough to sniff again and again at the stripes ...mmhm-mmhm-mmhm ...delicious !!!
And no, that's NOT how it smells, the cheap shower gel from the discounter .
Yes, it is not particularly complex, the dear Y ...a wonderful gush of very successful bergamot pours itself first over a spraying ...the prelude I LOVE ! And if this prelude were to linger a little longer and more vigorously, before, as here, it soon merges into a warm, spicy cuddly note and then remains unchangeably (and, after all, unchangeably delicious and pleasant!), it would be a sensational throw for me. Because this beginning is really successful !
And with the rest :), which - however - actually and actually as good as he is - unfortunately - has no murderer situation and becomes a little too fast very closely, I also agree very much: Neither is 'Y' a chemical bomb for me, I find it, because really nothing bites, stings, scratches, very pleasant ...nor is it as arbitrary as some people here stamp it:
Yes, the structure is rather simple, yes, no olfactory fireworks of sensory impressions are burned down here, which want to reinvent the fragrance wheel, which you can rub against and which only becomes accessible in a bulky way: Maybe you shouldn't always expect that, not even from YSL ...
But it's NOT enough for me to say 'is no good', like for me all the other blue things listed so far :), which are really connected by 'fabric softener freshness meets paper sweet, somehow woody base' ...no, for me it's a wonderful citrus start with some fruit. Followed by a very -clear- lightly spicy salvia note, which is very self-contained, then it turns into actually ambroxanige cuddling warmth ..........And I would like to sniff it for hours at the man, WITHOUT it becoming 'over' to me !
And it fits, in contrast to the supermegasweet club crackers, which should be reserved for the under 30-year-olds and the crisp and tart Antaeus, green-ripe Macassar or even a Zino and all those like it to almost every man of any age!
'Y' reminds me more, yes, even much more, of some 1990's releases, like the appley-woody Boss Bottled, than of that new-fashion blue stuff :) ¶
And goes at any time of day, night, office and after hours ...he's a rather reserved candidate, who doesn't scream 'here I am, smell me or run away!', he's discreet, but quite -present. yes, a -somewhat- longer durability not only as Skin-Scent would be a plus, so just ...always spray after, or just not too stingy, with the application :) On clothes he actually lasts -especially- long and enduring ...so, simply after only 2, 3 sprayers on the skin he also sprays 2, 3 times into the air, runs through it ...and then -staying - he :)
And I like all that very, very much !
Simply test yourself, let your own nose decide !
And that was now also 'y' I had to write some lines, the whole so extremely biased Bashing he has, like every other fragrance also, simply not deserved ! The rest is, thank God... as always the pure matter of taste ...and you can't argue about that, but you may, of course :-).
I like Y and Yves would NOT rotate in the grave, but smile friendly and calmly and say: everything has its place with me already so ...
