Wednesday 24th February welcomed brand-new launch YSL Libre Eau de Toilette to the Libre Collection and Scentstore family. Knowing the intensity and unique qualities of the Libre fragrance, we were so excited for an Eau de Toilette release and were definitely not disappointed! Taking a fresher, lighter path, this floral fragrance expresses youth and sensuality.
Inspired by the modern woman who creates her own rules and refuses to compromise. ‘Libre’ translates to ‘free’, epitomising the values of YSL; a freedom of self-embrace, a freedom of choice. British singer song-writer Dua Lipa continues to be the ambassador of this collection, embracing all the qualities of Libre.
“To be free for a woman in 2019 goes without asking. We live life by our own rules.”
A balance of warm and cold, Libre Eau de Toilette carries many of the same notes as the original Libre Eau de Parfum, however we do see a slight variation in ingredients, especially with the distinctive addition of White Jasmine Tea in the heart.
Top Notes: Sweet citrusy Tangerine replaces balanced Mandarin in the opening, blending with fresh Bergamot and Aromatic French Lavender.
Heart Notes: A sensual centre of Moroccan Orange Blossom, Jasmine Absolu and White Jasmine Tea.
Base Notes: A luxurious base, exchanging Cedarwood for Musk, complimented against smooth Vanilla and warm Ambergris.
Yves Saint Laurent have beautifully displayed the aura of spring in tonic, bottle and box with Libre Eau de Toilette through design and tone. Both Libre EDP and Libre EDP Intense were launched in the fall season, and both fragrances depict this season through rich, intense scent and colour as well as autumnal YSL embellishment on the packaging.
Now we witness Libre Eau de Toilette, launched for the upcoming Spring season with a softer, lighter elixir in scent and colour, encased in an elongated classic Libre style bottle. Accented with a gold YSL monogram and gold trimming to the bottle cap, an extra touch of elegance and luxury is added. The box itself sporting a nude, fresh toned YSL embellishment. This Eau de Toilette is available in 2 sizes; 50ml and 90ml.
Although carrying the modern femininity of the Libre Collection, this scent is also individual to the range with it’s refreshing quality. It is a must have for any Libre lover’s fragrance family, but alternatively if you have found the previous Libre’s slightly too intense for yourself, the brand- new Eau de Toilette could be your perfect Libre match!
Libre Eau de Toilette is the perfect fragrance to begin a new season with, as the sunshine returns and the flowers begin to bloom.
