Excerpt: I got this for a birthday present last year. I tend to get loads of Perfume for presents and I guess I don’t have to keep buying it myself, but I love to find new scents and keep smelling what is out there. I have tried a few in the ysl range, and people know that. Normally people tend to stick to the same brands that I perhaps like the odd scents from, but people tend to know what scents I like and they figure out other ones that I may like.
Summary: When a well-meaning shop-assistant tried to point out the assets of this fruity little number to me, I burst out into laughter. I'm neither young, nor sexy, and honestly, I don't want to be "lovely" either (and of course I am not, otherwise I would not rant against this stuff, would I?). "Young,Sexy,Lovely" is a very common type of fruity-floral perfume, and I would be hard pressed, if I had to distinguish it from all his brothers and sisters on the playground.
Summary: Pretty and delicate, inoffensive yet unoriginal. I'm a little disappointed in Young Sexy Lovely. Yves Saint Laurent usually comes up with interesting and in some ways, unique fragrances. However, in this case, Yves Saint Laurent played it safe. It is neither too fruity nor too flowery, it's a nice balance between the two. Young Sexy Lovely is yes, young and lovely, but definitely not sexy. Flirtatious maybe would have been a better choice.
Summary: This is a fragrance my 21 year old daughter wears. And my feeling is that it is appropriate for a younger age group. It is difficult to get, no longer being available from YSL counters at department stores. I ordered this for her for Christmas. It arrived in a timely fashion, appropriately packaged. I have to admit that I, myself, am not crazy about the fragrance. In the YSL line, I prefer 'In Love Again,' 'Opium,' 'Paris.
