Fragrance: the Yves Saint Laurent history of fragrances is punctuated by successes. Ever since the 1964 creation of « Y », more than 50 years ago, YSL Beauté has produced true olfactory sociological markers. A societal dimension perfectly illustrated by the image of Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent posing nude for the launch of his first men's fragrance, Pour Homme, in 1971. Today, many fragrances of the brand have become must-have references both for men, with L'Homme, La Nuit de l'Homme and women, with Opium, Black Opium, Manifesto and Paris.
Makeup offers the highest technology at the heart of a precious case, under the inspiration of Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Makeup. The absolute YSL Beauté makeup icons include Touche Éclat, Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils, and the Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres glossy stain which holds the leadership in the gloss market of main countries where the brand is marketed.
Skincare unites the most cutting-edge technology with glamour and an ultimate sensorial experience. Forever Youth Liberator and Forever Light Creator skincare lines, based on glycobiology, have gained a leading market position in the countries where they have been launched. Top Secrets, a pioneering skincare range for makeup lovers that presents a simple beauty equation: skincare plus makeup equals a multitasking hybrid of pre and post-makeup solutions for all complexions. The skincare branch of the brand is today conquering the premium skincare territory with its Or Rouge collection that brings together the Glycobiology science and a precious ingredient containing a high concentration of glycans, the pistil of Saffron.
