Pretty feminine scent
by Dawn on Feb 20, 2018
I tried a sample of the YSL Manifesto perfume in a collection. At first it smelled like a new baby doll from my childhood then it changed to be powdery and light. It is not flowery or fruity but feminine. It is a daytime spring scent to me.

This smells a little too sweet on me. Strong vanilla but wish it had a little more floral notes.

This a true beauty-- a definite one of a kind! Bold and brassy, but not harsh with a perfect balance of florals and spice. Rich and appealing. The lily of the valley shines through-- making it sweet and subtle. At the top of my list.

This scent isn't going to scream for your attention the way Opium does, but it's still a strong, determined fragrance. I enjoy wearing this to work, especially on days I've got stressful meetings planned -- it makes me feel confident, but at the same time warm and calm. Really nice -- I'll be buying more.

Not bad but boring.
by Janet on May 16, 2017
I ordered a sample of this and still can't make up my mind on this fragrance. I like it, but it does not seem unique enough to make me buy a bottle. It is a bit heavy for my personal tastes, but maybe I would wear it in the autumn or winter.
A little too powdery for my skin
by Mary Carole on Feb 14, 2017
Based on the notes and reviews, I was looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, it becomes a soury-sweet powdery mixture on my skin that it's very pleasant. I am sure that would be wonderful on others but it just doesn't work for me.

This is a very vanilla perfume. It is a very comforting scent

Beautiful vanilla scent. In fact it's almost purely warm cozy vanilla on me! Perfect for cold weather.
It goes sour on me
by Cindy on Apr 19, 2016
This is very citrusy baby powder with a hint of vanilla. As it dries down, the powder goes sour on my skin. It becomes so acidic that is actually makes my throat hurt.

I typically do not care for vanilla, but this is very elegant and complex. Beautiful. Will purchase this one.

This scent is so lovely. It's multi-layered avd very well put together. It's hard to explain this scent but it smells very similar to a Tom Ford scent, I think Pour Femme is the one, but less expensive, still not cheap by any means. Give it a try, it's quite beautiful, very wearable and inoffensive.
love this scent

Just not for chemistry. Gave to my mother it smells wonderful on her. I'M STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU MANIFESTO
Very Elegant and Soft
by Jennifer on Sep 23, 2015
A really nice elegant and feminine fragrance, sophisticated and mature. Very pleasant to wear, it is soft and not overpowering. The Manifesto L'Eclat EDT version is lovely as well.

I love this perfume. I bought the Autumn Collection and this was the first scent I tried out of the set... it is long lasting without being overwhelming. It's lush and feminine... I love wearing it. I notice the scent from time to time throughout the day and think to myself... "I smell SO GOOD!" This one reminds me of an oriental without being over-the-top. It doesn't walk into the room before you do! Yummy...
Fresh and sweet with a woodsy touch...
by Tamara on Jul 26, 2015
Thought the scent was pleasant, but looking for a scent that will make my boyfriend say, "Wow!" He thought it was just OK. The scent was a little sweet, clean, with a woodsy touch. Longevity was good--lasted on my skin all day!
Delicate, Sweet, 'Safe'.

Manifesto is a lovely and radiant scent. Black currant gives it a sharp and juicy quality, which seems to cool what would otherwise be a warm & woody vanilla/tonka combo. The green notes and jasmine provide a light freshness, and there's an almost glimmering or sparkling element (which is completely appropriate given the bottle design). The drydown transitions from juicy to powdery. After a while it matures quite a bit, and lends a 'come-hither' quality (but in a classy way).

I had no idea what to expect from this - whenever I see vanilla in the notes, I usually run the other way, but after a recommendation, I decided to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. Although I did not find it to be anything like Coco Mademoiselle, which I wear often, this is unusual in that it combines vanilla with some fruitiness that makes it much more interesting, without making it too sweet. I don't think I'd buy more, it's slightly too edible smelling for my taste so it's not going to be a favorite, but I will use the sample. If you like vanilla scents, you should definitely give this one a try.
For fans of Coco Mademoiselle

A sort of light, woody oriental in the modern vein. Not as heavy as Coco Mademoiselle, but similar in feel. Pretty bottle, decent longevity.
Let it manifest ...

It smelled spicy and powdery on my skin... It's woody and slightly sweet. I would wear this at night time. Wear it with a little black dress!
