    Default SotD Monday, June 2, 2008 - dedicated to YSL

    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.

    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.

    RIP


    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.

    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.

    † In Memoriam Yves Saint-Laurent †
    Yves Saint-Laurent
    Jazz
    (1988)
    Jean-François Latty

    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.

    Poivre Samarcande's subtlety belies its complexity. I find it both relaxing and stimulating. Quiet and mysterious, I feel as if it's whispering different things to me as I wear it. If I could touch it, I would expect to feel freshly sanded cedar, dried peppers, and silky warm skin.

    I'd sprayed Parfumerie Generale Cuir d'Iris before hearing the news of YSL's death, so will wear Opium, the perfume that started it all for me, as my SoTE.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
