Libre the signature fragrance, now bolder.
The Libre signature, bolder. Twisted with a smouldering orchid accord. Starring Dua Lipa, Global Fragrance Ambassador for YSL Beauty.
Inspiration: LIBRE, the French word for ‘free’, pays tribute to YSL’s most defining value: freedom. Freedom to be yourself. Freedom of choice. No compromise. Your own rules. Since 1961 freedom has dressed the YSL woman: fierce, bold, authentic. woman powerful like ocean waves crashing against the shore. With fire burning in her soul, like flames flickering in the breeze. Bestowing strength, like an eagle soaring through the sky.
To embody LIBRE is British singer song-writer Dua Lipa. "To be free for a woman in 2019 goes without asking. We live life by our own rules." Dua Lipa
Scent: The new Eau de Parfum Intense brings a fierce sensuality to the LIBRE floral signature. The structure of the original LIBRE composition celebrates the signature tension present in all YSL fragrances: tension between aromatic lavender from France and sensual orange blossom absolute from Morocco. The Eau de Parfum Intense is emboldened by a melting floral heart where a flamboyant orchid accord blazes with sensuality. The fragrance reveals creamy and smoky facets before unveiling a woody-ambery base which fuses smooth vanilla and vetiver for depth and intensity. Crafted by master perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaïm.
- Top notes: tangerine, bergamot, lavender
- Heart notes: jasmine sambac, orange blossom, orchid accord
- Base notes: tonka bean, vanilla, ambergris, vetiver
Bottle: The signature LIBRE bottle is designed to reflect the powerful character of the fragrance. Just like Yves Saint Laurent designed the first tuxedo for women. More intense than ever, the bottle is set alight by the burning colour of the juice, a shade between fire and gold. Encased in the sharp bottle silhouette, the fragrance is embellished by the oversized YSL logo in gold-tone hardware.
Collection: Feel free to love, and show your love. Indulge yourself with LIBRE and share it with those most special to you. A luxurious gift, suitable for all of life’s most special occasions.

How to use:
- For light intensity: spray in a cloud around your head and shoulders, let the fragrance fall gently around you
- For medium intensity: spray in a y-shape across your body, beginning at one shoulder and finishing at the other. If you are wearing jewellery it is a great alternative to spraying your neck
- For added intensity: apply perfume directly to your pulse points and / or hot spots (wrist, inner elbow and lower neck). Here the heat of your body will allow the fragrance to reveal its full trail. Include shoulders and back to intensify your perfume trail
Other application tips:
- Hair & hair accessories: they can be fragranced for a gentle fragrance trail. For just a halo of scent, spray your hairbrush only
- Garments: perfume the inside of your jacket and coats for a medium trail. For added intensity of fragrance go further and perfume your blouse/jumper
- Scarves: for lighter fragrance, spray a scarf and wrap the scarf around your neck to transfer fragrance onto yourself gently
- Bathing: spritz perfume on warm bath water for an indulgent experience
