Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Toilette Review

Breathe in the light, fresh and airy aroma of Yves Saint Laurent Libre, a floral Eau de Toilette for women, which is a playful, breezy reimagining of the iconic Libre fragrance.

The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…

Libre Eau de Toilette offers a more crisp, fresh and lightweight feel than the original Libre Eau de Parfum as it shakes up the original scent with a cooler, more delicate white tea note.

The Eau de Toilette creates a sense of duality between warmth and cold as it mimics the tension created in its predecessor. But this perfume takes on a life of its own as the juxtaposition of aromatic French lavender, and sensual Morrocan orange blossom sings.
Created by master perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaïm, the perfume opens with a fresh, fruity feel as tangerine, bright bergamot, and calming lavender marry together. The heart of the fragrance features a stunning and intoxicating orange blossom note, while jasmine absolu and white jasmine tea add freshness to the scent. The base creates a comforting yet seductive feel as musk, vanilla and ambergris.

You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of the original, but you’re looking for a slightly less intense edition – perhaps for summer or to wear in the day – then you’ll love this playful yet elegant reimagining.


Libre Eau de Toilette Smells Similar To:

Naturally, the perfume has a very similar feel to the Eau de Parfum edition Libre, as both scents circle key notes such as lavender, jasmine and orange blossom. Simultaneously, the bases of both fragrances showcase a warm, sensual blend of musk, vanilla and ambergris. The difference? YSL’s Eau de Toilette has a fresher, cooler feel.

Is Libre Unisex?

Although we always encourage you to wear a fragrance that you love – no matter who it’s been designed for – I do definitely see this as a scent that would typically appeal to women as it has a strong white floral feel to it.


What’s The Longevity Like?

The fragrance is incredibly long-lasting for an Eau de Toilette; I applied it to my wrist early afternoon and could still smell it that night.

What’s The Story?

Libre is taken from the French word for ‘free’, and the entire perfume collection pays tribute to YSL’s most defining value: freedom.

YSL promotes the freedom to be yourself and freedom of choice without compromise as they embolden women to be fierce and authentic. The new take on Libre encapsulates sensuality, youthfulness and freshness, making it the perfect scent for the carefree woman.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

The signature Libre bottle is designed to reflect the fragrance’s powerful character, reflecting the way that Yves Saint Laurent designed the first tuxedo for women. The Eau de Toilette is an elongated reinterpretation of the original Libre, seen in its height and horizontal, oversized YSL logo in a stunning gold-tone. The bottle is set ablaze with bright, sophisticated rose gold facets, reflecting the freshness yet sensuality aroma held within.
