I will wear Jazz, one of my all time favs!
The great Yves Saint Laurent is dead. Chinese textile junk bearing his logo is now sold at discounters, but that doesn't change his status as a giant in the history of fashion and design.
I propose we all wear a YSL fragrance in honor of the man. Ironically, YSL is underepresented in my wardrobe, but I shall spritz my sample of Body Kouros.
I will wear Jazz, one of my all time favs!
For me, Kouros Fraicheur during the day, and Opium pour homme at night.

I'll wear Kouros and my partner is going to borrow my Rive Gauche.
The founder of one of the best designer fragrance houses... this is sad news.
I'm either wearing one of the incarnations of Kouros or Opium Pour Homme.
Actually I think I'll wear YSL all week.

On June 2, try to wear YSL creations that pre-date Mr. St. Laurent's departure from the house in 1998. I'm going to wear his first, Y, one of the most androgynous chypres I've ever had the pleasure to wear. Bless you, Saint Laurent.
I shall be wearing Live Jazz.

Rive Gauche pour homme
I have almost all perfumes from YSL brand (no Body Kouros), and I found his masculines flawless.
Vetiver The Great!!!
by Yves Saint Laurent
My wife forbids me from wearing Kouros, the only YSL currently in the wardrobe, but she loves the new L'Homme. I will debate my options, up to and including a new buy (fragrance, not wife). We'll see what ends up here later. I may just take my bottle of Kouros along and spray the hallways when nobody is looking.
It was my wife's immediate opinion that Kouros smells like a zoo - specifically, the tanuki enclosure. I don't know - they seem kind of cute...
It's still Sunday night here, but I'll join along and wear Rive Gauche PH. I'll probably still be up past midnight anyways, but I'll change into something tomorrow evening non-YSL.
YSL - Opium Pour Homme
I love Jasmine.
I sprayed Guerlain Vetiver on before I read about the death of Yves Saint Laurent. I will spray some Kouros on tonight, after I've returned from work.
Yves St. Laurent, the man, the legend.
I have already posted on the womens SOTD thread...I am wearing Rive Gauche today.
† In Memoriam Yves Saint-Laurent †
Top Notes: Artemisia, Coriander, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Anise, Basil, Bergamot, Lavender
Middle Notes: Geranium, Jasmine, Iris, Carnation
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Tobacco, Amber, Cedar, Leather, Musk, Tonka Bean
A spicy fougère with good projection and sillage. The floral heart is the pivot or fulcrum between the spicy, citrus, and herbal top and the woody, tobacco and coumarin base.
A satisfying accord, and for me, a fitting way to remember the great designer who lent his name and brand to it.
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"

YSL - Rive Gauche Intense
No guru, not method, no teacher
Just you and I and nature
AG Grand Amour for me.
Didn't catch the sad news until after spritzing it on, would have chosen Y instead if I had known. RIP, YSL.
"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
Since all I have of YSL is a sample of L'homme, I'll be wearing that!
Although I don't have anything from YSL in my wardrobe at this moment, I shall be thinking about the wonderful scent of M7 today.
I love cologne.
Rive Gauche pour Homme
in memory of Yves.
Wishing you all a good week.
