    Default NEW: Yves Saint Laurent - Le Vestiarie Des Parfums Oriental Collection!

    From NST:





    Yves Saint Laurent has launched Le Vestiarie Des Parfums Oriental Collection, with five perfumes: Supreme Bouquet, Splendid Wood, Exquisite Embroidery, Magnificent Gold and Sleek Suede. (See also: 2015's Le Vestiaire des Parfums Tuxedo, Caban, Saharienne, Trench & Caftan and 2016's Cuir, Vinyle & Velours).

    Inspired by the creations of Mr Yves Saint Laurent, Le Vestiarie Des Parfums Oriental Collection is a range of five fragrances that each evokes oriental inspirations that has deeply nourished the Couturier.
    Supreme Bouquet ~ Originally released in 2013. "In Supreme Bouquet, the opulent tuberose is like a rich floral pattern, whereas the delicate ylang ylang is a more subtle floral print."



    Splendid Wood ~ Originally released in 2014. "In Splendid Wood the fusing cardamom structures the fragrance, while the cedarwood enhances a brown oriental palette of colours."



    Exquisite Embroidery ~ "In Exquisite Embroidery the animatic ambergris evokes a dark and opulent fabric embroidered by a delicate yet opulent rose."



    Magnificent Gold ~ "In Magnificent Gold the most precious ingredient, a luminous white oud, enlightens an elegant vanilla pod, creating the feeling of a vibrant gold texture."



    Sleek Suede ~ "In Sleek Suede the warm cocoa bean evokes the softness of the finest suede and the black oud wood the powerful scent of tanned leather."



    Le Vestiarie Des Parfums Oriental Collection Supreme Bouquet, Splendid Wood, Exquisite Embroidery, Magnificent Gold and Sleek Suede are available now at Harrods in the UK, Ł195 each for 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

    I'm going to be boycotting YSL over the scandal of their new "Y", at least until I get over my grumpiness about it.

    Which is a pretty hollow threat, considering I only ever buy their vintages anyway.

    From the first spray I get a lot of hazelnut from Sleek Suede .. It's very sweet. Out of the 3 new ones it's my favorite, followed by Magnificent Gold. I tried Splendid Wood it smelled very similar to the original but i'm not sure if its 100% the same. I'll do a side by side to compare if I can and report back.

    I tried them all . I have Splendid wood in the older bottle . The other new releases are all nice and pleasant but very poor projection. Nice but at the price points they are selling them they are meh. I would say there are better options, I am surprise they did not include Exquisite Musk which is actually the best in the series after Splendid Wood IMO. I guess they discontinued it.

    Harrods. They are nice but overall underwhelmed they paled in comparison to Roja Dove Oud and MFK Oud extrait series. Some NM stores do carry them now btw, I also tried them there.

    I happened to try the three new ones today, and Sleek Suede was the one that stood out to me. A very dry chocolate-y gourmand with hazelnut and lots of wood. I didn't´t get any leather, suede or oud.

    Might be a bit of a misnomer. For me it's a smoky chocolate, not overly sweet woody oriental. More of a suede mood than actual suede smell. Nevertheless very nice.

    i got a sample of sleek suede. for someone who finds most gourmand-esque scents cloyingly sweet (think feve delicieuse), this is a real good one. i get the nuttyness, the chocolate and both a subtle leather and sweetness, with a touch of incense. i guess that would be the suede! definitely a juice worth checking out.

    part of the opening is a little weird - medicinal, probably the oud. but once everything settles down it's a treat.

    So recently I came across a sale selling the full range for ~$130 each bottle. Are these good enough to warrant $130 ? At the moment I am really intrigued by Sleek Suede and Splendid Wood. For the other 3, I couldn't find any opinions or feedback on Magnificent Gold, Supreme Bouquet, and Exquisite Embroidery. Appreciate if any member could share your thoughts on these.

    Wow - that's a good price on those considering what they originally sold for. I happen to own them all and Splendid Wood is by far my favorite although I do like them all.
