Introducing Manifesto, the expression of audacity, excess, and desire.  A bouquet of jasmine punctuated by green notes and a bold trail combining wood, vanilla, and tonka beans are the signature of this new declaration of femininity. In a flacon reminiscent of the silhouette of a woman.

  • - A Haute Couture perfume bottle beneath a chiselled golden cap, the sparkling perfume bottle evokes a women’s silhouette, cinched at the waist with a multi-faceted, amethyst “jewel”, that sets off the golden fragrance within.

Laurel H: I finally found MY fragrance! For years I have searched for a fragrance that was my signature. I went thru Shalimar, Channel, Cashmere each for several years and none of them were IT!

thank you for creating this for me,

Caroline P W: I think it is, but then, I think scent preference is very individual, very personal. If you like YSL Opium, you'll probably like this. It is not light and flowery; it is deeper, smoother, more intense; definitely sexier. Hope this helps. May 8, 2014

Denise S: I have worn OPIUM most of my adult life, and I just knew after reading the ingredients of MANIFESTO it sounded like something I would like. From the packaging to the product it's self I was not disappointed. It's a fragrance you can even wear early in the morning, it's soft, spicey, and to answer your question .......VERY VERY sexy !!

Melissa L: This parfume has a soft sense. A mix between sweet, flowers and a hint if musk. i love the scent its not overwhelming. Feb 27, 2013

LyneaB: It is the most beautiful perfume I've ever smelled, hands down. The balance of the green top notes comprised of delicate florals, to the foodie mid smell of the vanilla, and the very delicate woods on the base, it is so perfect. So many other perfumes try to do what this one accomplishes. It's confidence comes ironically from how delicate it is, even with the woodsy base notes. Jun 20, 2013

Candice E asked: Does anyone know if this has pineapple in it? Nov 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Caroline P W: Candace, if you're asking about the scent, the answer is no. There is nothing pineapple-y about it. The scent is rather warm, sweet, and spicy. If you're asking about the ingredients, I have no idea. It would seem that YSL would be better able to answer that question. Scent is such a personal preference and I like this one, but still prefer Opium. Nov 28, 2013

Licia J: Manifesto is a lighter fragrance but I found two ways of enhancing it. One is to apply right after the shower and reapply when fully dressed, and also to layer it over the course of the day. It holds better that way. I also spray my clothing with it and it seems to work well for me. The scent is divine and does not compare to any other fragrance on the market in my opinion. May 30, 2014

Faye F: My big disappointment with Manifesto is that it is not for me. Fragrance did not hold up and I was an unhappy camper.

I usually wear the same thing all the time. I had a sample insert is a magazine and liked it. I purchased a roller ball just in case it wasn't me. I get migraines so I have to be careful. I love "Manifesto!" A beautiful fragrance Thank You

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this fragrance. I am always attracted to soft sensual scents, and this seems like it was made just for me! And it drives my husband crazy! I found a sample in a magazine and could not wait to get it. It is a very subtle scent. I spray my clothes with it and days later you can still smell it, although the fragrance is not overwhelming. I bought the 1oz spray and need to get some more and found the gift set of the par fume and lotion. Have high hopes for the lotion, I haven't tried it yet, but hope it smells and works great.
