YSL - Manifesto
YSL - Manifesto was released in the late summer of 2012. but we can expect it here in Croatia in about 2 weeks from now.
The face of the Manifesto is the American actress Jessica Chastain, and the "noses" behind this perfume are Ana Flipo (Armani - Acqua di Gioia, Lancome - Lancome - La Vie Est Belle, Pacco Rabanne - Lady Million edp and edt...) and Loc Dong (Calvin Klein - Euphoria, CKin2U, Armani - Acqua di Gioia...)
YSL - Manifesto belongs in the group of a floraly oriental scents. And also, the Manifesto, is "already smelled" kind of fragrance, at least to me it is.
If you know how does the Chanel Allure EDP smells, or maybe Hot from the Benetton, than you can probably imagine what you will get with the Manifesto.
So we are clear, they DO NOT smell excatley the same, but they do have some similarity's with each other. In the top notes there is a citrusy opening, and in the middle and base notes there are a jasmine and a vanilla.
Manifesto has a strong powdery note, which is not the case with the Allure or the Hot, and that is what makes Manifesto such a gorgeous fragrance to wear during the colder weather. It will make you feel so warm and cozy, without been overpowering.
Also, it could give you a headache during the warmer weather if you don't like how does the jasmine acts in the spring or in the summer. I prefer it better during the autumn or the winter.
I like the shape of the bottle and the purple color. Bottle is very elegant and not "too much". I imagine this scent on an elegant and a confident women who knows what does she wants in her life, but she also let herself to be spontaneous from time to time.
Bottle comes in sizes of a 1. oz, 1.6. oz and 3.3 .oz in EDP. The price varies depending on the size of the bottle, from 44 pounds, up to 85 pounds.
This fragrance doesn't have a strong aura, but it lasted for about 6 to 7 hours on my skin.
I have a sample, and I'm happy that I had a chance to test it properly. But I will not consider to buy a full bottle, just because I find similarity with other fragrances.
This is a very nice powdery fragrance, but we didn't click, because I don't find it unique.
Di you try Manifesto already? Any toughts? If not, will you?
