Yves Saint Laurent began his career at age 17, when he worked as Christian Dior’s assistant. When Dior died four years later, Laurent became head of the fashion house but had to resign his position to serve in the army and fight in the Algerian War. When he returned from military service, he started his own brand, which became known for tailored women’s suits, couture, and ready-to-wear. The first fragrance was launched in 1964, with new fragrances continuously being released through the L’Oreal Group. All products are original, authentic name brands. We do not sell knockoffs or imitations.
