YSL’s new cologne

If you’ve sampled a Moscow Mule then you’ll understand the kick a dash of ginger adds. So it’s no surprise that this sweet yet spicy root has become a key component in scents that claim to invigorate.

But few have embraced the virility of this bracing stem ‘note’ like Yves Saint Laurent, which is launching a reformulated version of its signature men’s scent, L’Homme.

Cologne Gingembre has radiant freshness and clarity, and is a worthy alternative to YSL’s classic formulation.

The explosive, ‘cool-burning’ cologne is available nationwide from 26 May.

L’Homme Cologne Gingembre £38 for 60ml by YVES SAINT LAURENT; 0844-892 1810
