5 Best Smelling YSL Colognes: Top Yves Saint Laurent Fragrances

Yves Saint Laurent is a French fashion company which produces among other things, fantastic scents. YSL is honestly one of my favorite fragrance designers, as I know I’ll always get both unique and masculine scents to wear. YSL has produced fantastic colognes since the 1970s and many of them are not even included on this list as they are either no longer produced or just really hard to find (scents such as: YSL Pour Homme, Live Jazz, and Kouros Tattoo). For this list, I have chosen what I consider to be the five best smelling Yves Saint Laurent colognes for men currently available. Each of them represents a different style and situation to which to wear them in. As usual, I have linked out to their product page on Fragrancenet.com, to find out more info about these colognes.

Yves Saint Laurent Body Kouros for Men, Eau De Toilette, 3.3 Fluid Ounce
Great casual cologne which is a favorite of mine in the winter months. It blends eucalyptus, incense, and woods for a candy sweet fragrance with a bit of spice. I reviewed Kouros Body here



Opium By Yves Saint Laurent For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.3 Ounces
A rather warm and soft cologne that is great for fall and winter. Opium is an exotic and spicy scent with notes of vanilla which help to mellow it out. Notes include: vanilla, ginger, pepper,  cedar,  balsam. I reviewed Opium here



Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’homme Eau de Toilette Spray, 3.3-Ounce
A soft, casual, long-lasting, and fantastic smelling cologne from Yves Saint Laurent. This is another one that turns the heads of the ladies and it is masculine without being in your face about it. Notes include: Vetiver, Cedar, Coumarin, Floral notes, Bergamot, Lavender, Cardamom. Review

Jazz By Yves Saint Laurent For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.3 Ounces
A hard to find classic from the late 1980s. Jazz is a spicy floral based cologne that has a knack for attracting women. Notes include: sandalwood, rose, spices, and amber.



Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent for Men – 3.3 Ounce EDT Spray
Another very attractive scent from YSL. Like Jazz, it has a blend of floral notes and spicy one too but Kouros adds undertones of woods to give it that extra depth. This one is intense.
