Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto L’Elixer EDP Intense

YSL Manifesto EDP Intense


Art Directed and Styled by Marlinette Newman

Fragrance Family: Sweet Woody Floral ending with a hint of spice

In Three Words: Intense, Sweet, Confident

My Experience: (I tested the fragrance on a cardboard strip before reading up about it, and this is what the scent made me think of)
This fragrance took me to a film-like scene, where a man, handsomely dressed in a suit, walks into a dimly lit, luxurious bar. He looks up and sees her standing in the distance, tall champagne glass in hand, wearing a long, black satin dress. Her hair is styled to the side in big 50s waves, complimented with a red lip. Her hourglass Jessica Rabbit’esque figure makes her deadly sexy. She looks expensive and in control. She is passionate. Intense and enticing.

For Her

nothing important

is lived without Passion


The fragrance of independence, MANIFESTO affirms every facet of a personality on the go. For women who invent their lives at every moment. Audacious, down to their contradictions and excesses. Above conventions, they create their own personal codes, untouched by anything that dulls their existence, and always without restrictions. MANIFESTO. For women who say YES to style, beauty and mystery.


Sweet Jasmine forms the thread of this fragrance.

The green, translucent noted of lily of the valley form the top note.

In the middle we find the tangy, fruity accent of Blackcurrant.

For the base note the essence of cedar core and sandalwood envelops, along with vanilla and tonka bean.
