For once, Yves Saint-Laurent left the perfumes with the scents of Paris in 2012 to offer us a Manifesto as a declaration of love for absolute femininity. Oriental, flowery, opulent, joyful and daring, Manifesto lets itself be carried by elegant but daring women who do not hesitate to break the codes to follow their path.
Manifesto or the perfumed talisman of an absolute woman
Until now it is true that Yves Saint-Laurent had accustomed us to flowery perfumes which exhaled Parisian life, the elegance of the women of the City of Light and the aesthetic beauty of the great artistic inspirations. With Manifesto, YSL describes a more universal woman but no less modern and playful while being assertive and a bit original.
“The Manifesto woman has an attitude, a burst of laughter, a tone of voice, a presence but above all, femininity” Yves Saint-Laurent for Manifesto.
Manifesto wants to play with the lights and the faces of femininity and does so with a very Yves Saint-Laurent daring! Moreover, it will be the beautiful and flamboyant Jessica Chastain who will be chosen by the big house to represent Manifesto. A choice made by the master himself seduced “by the nuanced strength of Jessica Chastain, her solar charm and her free spirit. Jessica embodies the quintessence of Saint Laurent femininity, ”says Yves Saint-Laurent of her.
With her racy allure, the muse travels through the film as well as the visual with rare elegance and Manifesto lights up. The woman is the sensual and ardent brush of the artist and illuminates the world around her with her presence. Passionate even excessive, the Manifesto woman embodied by the star never goes unnoticed.
If “daring is an art”, Manifesto is its perfume
The beautiful Manifesto bottle looks almost like a work of art. The silhouette bottle reflecting the light is surrounded by an amethyst belt to highlight the curves and facets of the glass. A bottle that is also presented as a precious jewel, the best friend of women, they say!
Manifesto was created by the now famous lover of spring fragrances Anne Filipo and the great fan of perfume contrasts Loc Dong. Bergamot and grapefruit open with their tonicity the pretty Manifesto which will also be written in green notes and sweet blackcurrant buds. The heart will open like a flower in the sun between precious and opulent notes of ylang ylang, frangipani and tiare. Jasmine and lily of the valley accords bring their tender and flowery freshness. Finally, the gluttony of tonka bean and vanilla will come together with the sensual power of the depths of sandalwood and Atlas cedar.
“THE WOMAN Whole, she believes in intuition, daring and desire. Spontaneous, she prefers the exception to the rule. She plays with codes. She likes to say yes. Yes to style. Yes to life. Yes to love and mystery. This is his manifesto. » Yves Saint-Laurent for Manifesto.
