Oh Wow!

YSL is selling their own label of super 'sophisticated' cigarettes!



They now have their very own cigarettes branded and marketed throughout Asia and Russia and are sold for up to $44 per pack. Apparently they have actually been launched way back in 1989.

I would definitely have to say that cigarettes are not classy, do not appear classy and certainly don't smell classy. The Vogue forums have a thread on this and I have to agree with the poster who said its a little hypocritical for a company that sells anti-ageing products to also sell tobacco products.

What do you think of 'designer' cigarettes?
