Yves Saint Laurent Libre - perfume for women

Libre by Yves Saint Laurent - A new feminine fougere fragrance that mixes lavender, orange blossom, and a musk accord. Eight years in the making, perfume Anne Flipo said "it was a long journey," but the eau de parfum finally launched in September 2019. Created by perfumers Flipo and Carlos Benaim, the duo blended notes of mandarin, blackcurrant, petitgrain, and lavender, with jasmine, orange blossom, cedar, musk, vanilla, and ambergris. The "new fragrance of freedom" features singer Dua Lipa in the advertising campaign photographed and directed by Nabil Elderkin. The iconic YSL perfume bottle features a black lacquered cap and gold accents. Available in an eau de parfum spray and rollerball from Nordtrom, Macy's and Sephora.

The olfactive equivalent of a YSL Le Smoking, the brand's latest scent is a bold, feminine twist on the fougère, a classic style of men's fragrances that's big on lavender. Layered with orange blossom and vanilla, it's crazy sensual.
