Y (Yves Saint Laurent)

My Full Fragrance Review:

Hey, guys! Today, I’ll be talking about Y from Yves Saint Laurent (YSL), their take on a bubblegum fragrance. If you’re into fresh and sweet scents, this one’s definitely for you. Y is available in various concentrations, so buckle up as we dive into the world of YSL’s Y.

Quick Facts:

  • Scent Profile: fresh, sweet
  • Season: all-seasons
  • Longevity: average
  • Occasion: nightlife
  • Price: $$

Smell:

Y from YSL is your typical bubblegum fragrance, meaning it’s fresh, super sweet, and quite loud. But here’s the kicker: Y comes in three concentrations – Eau de Toilette (EdT), Eau de Parfum (EdP), and Parfum. The higher the concentration, the less fresh and sweet and the more complex the scent gets.

The EdT is the sweetest, almost on par with Invictus. Honestly, I’d only recommend this version for teenagers. The EdP, on the other hand, strikes a nice balance between fresh and sweet, making it a decent clubbing fragrance for guys in their mid-twenties. Lastly, the Parfum version is a lot less sweet and fresh. To be frank, it kind of misses the point: it’s not sweet and attention-grabbing enough for the club scene, but the general scent profile isn’t the best for other occasions either. In my opinion, the EdP is the best choice. Although less sweet than the EdT, it’s still very sweet by most standards.

Longevity:

When it comes to longevity, Y makes a good clubbing fragrance. It performs nicely, maybe not as strong as other well-known clubbing fragrances, but good enough to last throughout the night.

Final Thoughts:

If you’re looking for a fresh bubblegum fragrance for your favorite disco, then Y EdP might be the one for you. It’s a better option than its rival, Invictus from Paco Rabanne, especially for guys beyond their teenage years. It’s still sweet, but not that annoying kind of sweet.

The EdT is like Invictus and is the version teenagers should go for. However, I don’t really see the point of the Parfum version. It’s not attention-grabbing enough for the night, and it’s too unpleasant for other occasions.

For more mature guys who still like to wear a fresh and sweet fragrance to a nightclub, you might want to check out Hawas from Rasasi. It’s a great alternative for those who want a sophisticated scent without losing the fun, bubblegum vibe.
