Yves Saint Laurent launches Orient-inspired fragrance trioFollowing Estée Lauder’s Amber Mystique, Yves Saint Laurent has taken inspiration from the Orient to create the Oriental Collection, a fragrance trio based on rose, leather and white flowers and featuring notes such as oud wood, violet leaves and pink pepper.

Developed by nose Alberto Morillas, Majestic Rose is based on the queen of flowers, also embracing notes of oud wood, gaiac wood and vanilla, with a touch of bergamot, raspberry and papyrus. 

Noble Leather is structured around the scent of leather with a dash of tobacco, dried fruit and patchouli oil. Julie Massé developed the scent, which also combines mandarin and violet leaves with saffron and pure vanilla.

Completing the trio, Supreme Bouquet focuses on the spirit of white flowers. Nose Dominique Ropion opted for a combination of essence of bergamot, pink pepper and pear. The spicy and fruity mix is enhanced by jasmine sambac flowers, ylang-ylang essence and musk.

Following an exclusive launch at Harrods, the collection will be available starting June 17, with an 80ml bottle going for €175.
