YSL's Newest Perfume Gives You The FREEDOM To Express Yourself
YSL’s latest scent, LIBRE checks all of the boxes of everything I look for in a perfume. “A new, sexy cool floral. Grown between France and Morocco. Conceived between Paris and New York. Walking the line between the masculine and the feminine...”
LIBRE means Freedom in French and is everything the house of YSL embodies.
“I am aware that I made Fashion progress, and that I allowed women to access a world of freedom that was prohibited to them until then.”
Yves Saint Laurent
Like most people, I’m extremely selective with fragrances. I don’t like anything too sweet, too floral, too fresh, and prefer warm blends. For reference, some of my faves are Tom Ford Soleil Blanc, Tom Ford Santal Blush, CHANEL Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Perfum Intense. One the days I wear florals, I go for complex and sophisticated scents like CHANEL N°5, CHANEL N°5 L’EAU, or Anine Bing Savage Rose.
LIBRE is stunning in every way I can imagine. If you look closely at my opening photo of the perfume bottle, you’ll notice I’ve already used a fair amount considering I’ve only had it for a week.
The bottle itself is a work of art featuring the iconic Cassandre logo that was created in 1961. The glass bottle is cut with geometric lines similar to that of a tailored suit. The neck of the bottle is adorned with a gold chain and the slanted black cap adds asymmetrical glamour.
