Grain de Poudre. In the mid 1960s, Yves Saint Laurent borrowed this finely grained fabric from men’s suits and made it the symbol of a more feminine look. A subtle weapon of seduction that is similarly electric.
To translate the unique grain de poudre texture into a fragrance, YSL Beauté chose the most delicate of flowers: the violet. Its powdery sweetness, familiar and reassuring, evokes a graceful elegance that stands the test of time.
But the perfect cut of Grain de Poudre soon releases the unexpected freshness of sage, its virile energy adding exciting bite to the violet. The spiced charms of coriander and black pepper add a new depth to this olfactory dialogue and its contrasts.
