If you’re looking for a new spring perfume perfect for the season ahead then Yves Saint Laurent Beauté may just have launched your new best friend: YSL Libre Eau De Toilette.
The legendary beauty house has released a lighter, fresher take on its award-winning YSL Libre just in time for brighter days with more sun, skin and less drama. Following on from YSL Libre Intense’s richly sensual release last winter, the brand new YSL Libre Eau De Toilette pivots to the brighter side in spirit and scent.
The original fragrance’s signature blend of lavender and orange blossom is given new life with white tea for the breezier Eau De Toilette, which is already naturally less concentrated than the Eau De Parfum. (Don’t know the difference? Here’s an explainer of Eau De Parfums vs. Eau De Toilettes.)
The pure, soft white tea brings a carefree twist to the empowering fragrance, which was originally designed to celebrate the freedom of the modern woman, as personified by Dua Lipa. Perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim remastered the classic formula not to dilute its bold edge in any way but rather to streamline its essence to add an alluring intimacy.
As the most feminine interpretation of YSL Libre to date, the Eau De Toilette manages to bottle the boundless energy and strength of a woman who truly exists in her own power. Its lighter take is represented by the taller bottle, which proudly displays the deliciously golden pink colour of the fragrance behind the iconic gold YSL logo wrapped around like a piece of jewellery.
With spring’s natural joys also bringing the old world opening back up, the fragrance of freedom’s lighter and brighter edition couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s been a heavy few months for us all and everyone knows how transformative a new scent can be during times of change, so step into this new chapter ahead with the new YSL Libre Eau De Toilette, a fragrance that will embolden your freedom.
