The Beat Look
“The Americanization of French culture was at its height in the late 1950’s and YSL was not immune to its influence. Inspired by the street looks of youth culture, the beats and the motorcycle chic of the “wild one”, “The Beat Look” was revolutionary. The perfume is not only inspired by YSL’s collection and French culture of the time but also by his very first perfume launch “Y”, a fruity-aldehydic chypre, of 1964.
The notes are: aldehydes, bergamont, peach, mirabelle plum, neroli, gardenia, honeysuckle, grandiflorum jasmine, hyacinth, Bulgarian rose, rose de mai, orris, patchouli, amber, vetiver, musk, civet, oakmoss, sandalwood, and leather.”
