The concept of “escape” is central to the Wonderlust story. If someone told me to describe this scent with three words, it would be Adventure, Romance, Discovery. Captivating, confident, and always sexy, Wonderlust evokes a lust for life where beauty, spontaneity and sensuality are the ultimate destination. Deeply romantic, it's a fragrance inspired by the exotic, the unexpected and the unknown.
The focus lies on the dianthus flower to give Wonderlust the feel of an almond milk that’s been blended with a “spicy, creamy floral.” Top notes of almond milk are accompanied by heliotrope placed at the hart of the fragrance. The base of the composition provides benzoin, a natural resin from Thailand leaving the impression of warmth, and the spicy sweetness of cinnamon.
Michael Kors talking about this inspiration explains: “I wanted something that’s feminine, not in an insipid way, but in a streamlined, modern way. It’s the same way with the gourmand. The almond milk has something delicious, but not edible or sticky”.
Launched in summer of 2016 in a beautiful oval peachy bottle. Wonderlust's luminous gradient bottle, a study in sensual curves accented with gold, captures the chic, carefree luxury of an impromptu escape

The fashion house of Yves Saint Laurent used the city of light and fashion as an inexhaustible inspiration for its perfumes. After the famous lines that started with the 1983 Paris and 2009 Parisienne, YSL is launching the new Paris-inspired line called Mon Paris, coming out mid-2016. Mon Paris is announced as a dazzling fragrance that represents a modern olfactory interpretation of love, free from all the obstacles, dedicated and intense.
Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté, told wwd that Mon Paris is “complementary” to Black Opium, representing the new pillar fragrance for core consumer expected to be slightly older Millennials, 25 to 30 years old (with Black Opium targeting 20 – 25). He also added that the objective was to rework a modern chypre fragrance, developed with Firmenich perfumers Olivier Cresp, Harry Fremont and Dora Baghriche: “We invented a [white] chypre,” he said.
The composition has a fruity start, intoxicating floral heart and a dark chypre base. It opens with a juicy and sweet blend of Calabria bergamot, strawberry, raspberry and pear. The heart is dominated by datura flower accompanied by a bouquet of peony, Chinese and Sambac jasmine and orange blossom. Airy crystal white musk (three types of it), ambroxan and an intense patchouli duo (from Indonesian and Guatemala) provide the provocative classic chypre signature base.
Yves Saint Laurent-Mon Paris is available as a 30, 50 and 90 ml Eau de Parfum.
