The company says:
In the heart of the label’s historic district, 6 Place Saint Sulpice is home to one of its oldest boutiques. In 1979, people who had devoted themselves to Saint Laurent met here. Today, the legendary address is home to the new Yves Saint Laurent designs. The fragrance composed by Carlos Benaim and his team respects the boutique’s strong visual identity, adorned in clear black and white. The spotlight is given to woody notes and a leather accord. The smoky effect of labdanum with its hazelnut woody aroma coils around a mellow, velvety and sensual leather evoking the sofas of the boutique, like the skin effect of ultra-fine clothes. From this dense darkness emerges the gentle brightness of saffron discreetly blended with bergamot and lavender, whilst a Tonka bean provides an enveloping note, comfortable in a composition that makes you want to try on clothes to feel the effect on your own skin.

Latest Reviews of Le Vestiaire des Parfums : 6 Place Saint Sulpice
In this fragrance, the dominant notes of Tonka and saffron overshadow any discernible presence of labdanum. The scent is reminiscent of santal, pleasant but ultimately lacking in complexity or distinctiveness. It can be described as pleasant yet somewhat unremarkable, leaving it with a rather bland overall impression.
That said, I could definitely appreciate that one on a woman :)
