Splendid Wood La Collection Orientale
THE INSPIRATION : Celebrating the art of seduction, SPLENDID WOOD cultivates the mystery of constantly renewed desires. Like eyes meeting between the cut-outs of a Moroccan moucharabieh screen, faces barely perceived in a play of light and dark, concealment and revelation, the fragrance combines fervor and transience, feverish passion and cool distance. A fragrance full of intrigues and temptations that carries us away to the sumptuous Orient of Yves Saint Laurent's dreams. THE PERSONALITY : BETWEEN FERVOR AND THRILL On the top note, cardamom sparkles and shines. It brilliantly resonates with the swirling notes of incense before settling on petals of precious jasmine sambac. Beneath a floral heart, Oriental woods whisper their dark sensuality. The warm depth of cedar and cypriol essences is set ablaze by the smoky accents of the oud wood accord. THE BOTTLE : Inspired by the muffled, refined atmosphere of an oriental palace, the bottle is draped in the iconic gold that defines the ORIENTAL COLLECTION. Here, the YSL Cassandra logo appears in the gilded whorls of a moucharabieh screen on the glass surface. True to the Collection's Haute Parfumerie spirit, the five principal accords in the composition are indicated on a facet of the bottle. The gleaming black cap gives it a sleek, contemporary allure.
