Scent of the Day #3

Le Smoking

The Tuxedo for a woman was revolutionary and avant-garde at the time YSL started introducing the style into his collection. Inspired somewhat by the smoking jacket and women’s liberation, the Tuxedo was a continuous muse for every subsequent collection right until the last. “Le Smoking”, named after the first Tuxedo design, is a sophisticated green chypre fragrance based of course on the Blond Tabac (fine cigarette) note as well as the new “marijuana” cigarette and Moroccan incense.
