It gets more hate than it deserves…
… and if you like sweet scents, you better grab it while you can still find it. My prediction is that it’s gonna be remembered like the Invictus Aqua that everyone started loving after it was too late…

It’s got a great scent. You can tell it’s the Y dna, but it has a younger feeling sweetness as a backbone. That sweetness actually outlasts the Y dna in performance, and it’s what remains on the final drydown. As stated below, it kind of feels like a more mature version of Invictus… KIND OF…

Performance is excellent, a strong opening with a wide projection radius that extends an easy 4ft, and it has a nice sillage that trail lingers nicely for a solid 4 hours. When it pulls back it still smells nice and strong and the final performance on my skin is a solid 8+ hours.

Seriously, if you like the Y line and/or you like sweet scents, you should grab it while it’s still out there, because it only gonna get love when it’s impossible to find… and that’s when everyone is going to want a piece of the fun

Y Edp meets Invictus
Y live has clearly the DNA of the Y line, but mixed with some Invictus.
For me a super pleasant and beautiful fragrance, which is aimed more at the slightly younger target group.
Also works well as an all-rounder.
Y Live is positively received by others and likes to get compliments.
Durability and projection are average. In winter I think the fragrance goes a bit too much under, but in the other seasons it should work nicely.
Especially in spring and summer I see him as particularly suitable.
Whoever smells the fragrance for the first time will not perceive anything completely new. Who knows the Y line and fragrances like Invictus etc. will notice that the wheel is not reinvented here, but that doesn't always have to be the case :)
All in all, it is a pleasant scent with which one does not tease

From the point of view of a mid 20 year old single student
Scent: Smells like a watered-down version of YSL Y EDP + a little Invictus | 7/10
Compliments: Really very good - was always well received by the girls so far | 8,5/10
Shelf life & silage: Weaker than the EDP better than the EDT 6 hours shelf life and approx. 2 hours projection - that works better | 6/10
Occasion: Only in spring / summer useful, for autumn winter m.M.n too weak | 7/10

Conclusion: Beautiful, safe & modern fragrance that compliments well but does not have the best performance or uniqueness.

1st impressions:this seems oddly underrated in 'frag-com'. Brilliantly fresh, modern & powerful scent, like an intense Legend Spirit. Wow!

Aromatics-ginger-cedarwood freshness, soft floral heart on a tonka-ambrox buzz. Modern mainstream. Guaranteed to 'blend in' with the crowd

Way better than it is rated here. It's a ladies magnet. Fresh and sweet, it's a grown up version of Invictus. Also has great performance
