The dark side of Yves Saint-Laurent
If the Vestiaire de Parfums collection put the spotlight on iconic pieces of Yves Saint-Laurent fashion, this time it is the clothes typical of a Parisian in the heart of the night that are in the spotlight. Velours is a unisex fragrance whose aromas are at the same time daring, elegant and very sensual. What’s more, the rock ‘n’ roll side of Yves Saint-Laurent hasn’t been left out either and Velours turns out to be somewhat sassy.
Velvet, a sweet fragrance like a caress

Velours begins with a very energizing and sassy blend of black tea and pepper. Thus, velvet set similar to a real boost in everyday life.
