Experience the bold aromatic freshness of lavender paired with sensual orange blossom with Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum Spray, a bold floral fragrance that will inspire you to be yourself.
Libre is the French word for ‘free’, and that’s exactly what this contemporary Eau de Parfum from YSL wants you to be. The modern woman is continuously pushing boundaries, living life to the full and embracing the idea of freedom. This fragrance encapsulates these notions perfectly because it’s the first female floral-lavender scent produced by YSL. It incorporates an unusual but addictive contrast of aromatic lavender notes with a creamy-heady blend of jasmine and orange blossom from Morocco. The result is a white floral perfume with a herbal undertone that exudes sophistication.
Master perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim have created a unique and couture-infused scent. YSL has dressed the golden juice in a bottle that echoes the androgenous and statement style of Saint Laurent. The flacon is structured and feels like an accessory, rather like the YSL bags and shoes that have the same oversized logo. With sharp and elegant lines the gold emblem bends around the bottle, and if you look closely, you’ll notice a cut out in the glass, that mimics a low V cut neckline. Underneath the asymmetric black lacquered top is a row of gold chains elegantly wrapped around the bottle - an extra touch that’s inspired by the luxurious chains of iconic Yves Saint Laurent handbags. This is a perfume bottle you’ll be proud to show off.
Why We Love It
We love the concept of this scent and the fact that it centres itself around the idea of freedom, to be yourself and make your own rules. And that goes for the way you wear the perfume, too. If you are wearing jewellery around your neck and want to avoid that area, spritz it in a Y shape, beginning at one shoulder and finishing at the other. Or spray a little into your hairbrush and then run it through your hair to lightly scent it. Our favourite way to enjoy Libre, however, is to spritz a bit of the perfume into our bathwater. It's a luxurious treat that makes our skin smell beautiful afterwards.
