As a very important part of the Yves Saint Laurent world, Morocco was not only a favorite resort of the legendary designer, but also an inexhaustible source of inspiration…
Moroccan paradise, a symbol of light, vibrant colors and unique scents, has now become the benchmark of this brand, in their latest fragrance, Atlas Garden. In 1966, Yves Sen Loren visited Marrakech for the first time and immediately fell in love with him. A few years later, in 1980, the legendary designer reaffirmed his love for the city when he purchased a villa and gardens created by Jacques Majorelle in the 1930s. As the perfect vacation spot for the famed designer, Villa Oasis has become his main source of inspiration.
With its latest launch, YSL Beauty is also reaffirming its ties to the Ourika Valley at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, where the women’s community cultivates a number of ingredients that the celebrity brand uses in its products. These sun-bathed treasures have just spawned the perfume, Atlas Garden, which is the last to join the YSL La Vestiaire des Parfums collection.
Created by Amandin Marie, the scent directs our focus towards the two faces of the orange blossom – at its heart, there is a fiery neroli mixed with the orange blossom to give a slightly more sensual tone. The harmony of this combination sets the perfect scene for honey Deglet Nour dates, almonds, tonka beans and ambrox.
As Amandine Marie says, she wanted to create a dreamy sense of wandering through the palm trees, with spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains, oranges in bloom and an abundance of rich and fresh dates all sensual pleasures that Marrakech has to offer for a single walk.
Atlas Garden fragrance is now available for $175 per 75 ml bottle.
