Haha! Yeah, we've all been there! As far as I know, Pinaud Yu was their entry into the Oriental Fougere craze of the 1960's. Yu was meant to tap into the same market as Hai Karate and Jade East. I expect that Yu smells quite a bit like both of these green, Asian-themed mens colognes of the period.I do what I can so that others can be yelled at by their wives for buying stuff that they don't need so that I am not alone in being yelled at.
