I’m in the mood to celebrate the life of a very special man. Yves Saint Laurent left his mark on the world of beauty and fashion. Saint Laurent’s pantsuits were liberating and turned women’s work and recreational wear into high-fashion power wear.
YSL also created cosmetics and fragrance that was very popular with the YUPPIE set when I was growing up. My mother received a lot of YSL gifts during that time, possibly because she is French and there is nothing more French than YSL! My personal favorite was, OPIUM, the dark perfume bottle looks like the lacquered boxes from the Orient. The tassle I would fix constantly drove me crazy – in a good way! Maybe those hours of playing with that Opium bottle and tassle inspired my love of Chinoiserie.
Now, for the purpose of this post… to tell you about two limited edition Yves Saint Laurent items!
YSL Baby Doll fragrance (pic below) is totally different in appearance, light, eye candy at it’s best. The box holding the four mini Baby Doll scents in place looks like a traditional macaroon box. They are the perfect size for travel but I am concerned about the caps twisting off and making a mess so I will have to investigate the closure some time.
YSL also has a Baby Doll sparkling body powder with a delicate scent, “the Baby Doll woman has never been so seductive!” If no one has ever told you, let me be the first, there is nothing more luxurious then a thin veil of body powder. Get them while they last!
