Saint Laurent’s fragrance line has been prolific and continues today after his death in June 2008. The first was Yves Saint Laurent Y Perfume, debuting in 1964, followed by Rive Gauche in 1971 and the scandalous Opium in 1977. This perfume has become an icon and eventually led to the creation of many others, offshoots of the original, with its lush blend of Oriental spices, rich florals, and deep wood notes. Some of the fragrances for men, Kouros and M7 Cologne were introduced by advertising that caused quite a stir, which was banned by some countries. Paris Perfume was another trendsetter and led to a series of “Paris Perfumes”, which were released each Spring. Year after year, new fragrances were introduced, all unique and very popular, and this trend has continued, even after Yves Saint Laurent’s death. The newest fragrances are the youthful Baby Doll Magic Honeymoon and Paris Eau de Printemps Perfumes, both out in 2009.
