    Default Favorite Yves Saint Laurent fragrance?

    Yves Saint Laurent is probably my favorite fragrance house due to a combination of things. All the scents are well crafted, inexpensive, unique and appeal to me.

    Which YSL fragrance is your favorite? If you picked other put which one you like.

    M7. It is by far their best, in my opinion.

    I was never a big fan of YSL.
    In their men's line I like Opium EdP the most.
    Best female is Baby Doll ... no, not a fan!

    Probably Live Jazz. I'm just in love with how wonderfully refreshing it is, I can't wait till summer rolls round.

    I don't like voting for one but I picked RGPH. Just too good and versatile. Kouros and Body Kouros also worthy of a vote.

    its okay....we're all special in our own way

    maybe i just see things a little differently but ever since someone pointed out the chocolate vibe in Egoiste, i got the white chocolate one in M7. Or maybe it just smells that way on my innocent, pristine skin

    It has to be M7 for me also, but I'm really loving La Nuit at the moment too. Very underrated IMO.

    Rive Gauche pour homme, for sure

    I've always been impressed with YSL for being so bold for a designer firm. Releasing Rive Gauche was a daring move in '04 because 70s-styled fougeres like that had been "passe" since, well, the 70s. And Kouros? Just smell it and you know how gutsy YSL was to release it at any time.

    My favorite YSL scent of course is Kouros, but I also totally love Rive Gauche and Jazz. YSL Pour Homme is also a great timeless classic.

    Jazz Prestige, by far. It's a crime that it's been discontinued.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Splits: Ferragamo Incense Suede, Trumper Eucris, O'driu Eva Kant.
    New atomizer and decanting supplies for sale.

    What I find amazing now that I'm looking at the responses is that YSL has a body of work that appeals both to younger and more mature Basenoters.
    Amazing house. Now I have to try Jazz.

    Jazz is criminally underrated. If you like sandalwood, then Jazz is a must try. It's the perfect sandalwood-based fougere, IMO.

    Hey, thats cool Joey. I just know that you have great taste I picked M7 as well. Overall, I get a sort of cherry vibe to it. I'm horrible at describing notes, though. I just know its a great fragrances. Alot of guys dismiss the new formulation, but I think it is a great fragrances.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Very difficult choice for me as YSL is one of my favorite houses.
    I love mostly everything from them.
    Jazz, as mentioned by some posters above, is terribly underrated. I find it extremely complex and satisfying.
    Live Jazz is such a unique take on summer fragrances taking the mint route and ditching the ubiquitous citrus theme.
    Kouros. It's an eternal classic, IMO.
    YSL pour homme is a long lasting (rare attribute for a lemon scent) summer frag.
    Rive Gauche. Yuck. I don't like this at all.
    M7 is the one that gets my vote. It's unique and exhibits attributes that are common with much more expensive frags out there.
    Revolutionary in a way since it was so unique when it was launched. I find it extremely satisfying whenever I wear it.
    M7 Fresh is nice too with a dollop of grapefruit sweetness along with the medicinal M7.

    Unfortunately none of them for me so far. I've tried Rive Gauche, M7, Body Kouros, L'homme, and La Nuit De L'Homme, and none of them have been for me. The closest to being something I'd wear is La Nuit. I'm looking forward to trying Live Jazz though. I'm hopeful that it is more to my tastes.

    Vintage Opium parfum. But I agree YSL was a fantastic fragrance house, that is until the arrival of L'Homme & La Nuit. Pffftt...!

    Voted for Live Jazz (I wore it a lot in summer -99) but I love M7 (hub wears it), too.

    I have, and like, YSL pour homme. I tried Rive Gauche P.H. and M7 but I didn't like them. Never tried the others.

    I wanted to tick Kouros but mistakenly ticked and clicked Body Kouros. Sorry.

    I do think YSL's range of perfumes are well crafted. One of my favourite houses.

    Had to vote for Kouros.

    My apologies to M7 and Live Jazz.
