Most Helpful Positive Review YSL is BACK BABY!
Wow. After years of adjusting to the creative transition, YSL is back and better than ever! The original Libre release was so impressive to me (as was the advert for Black Opium) - although the note pyramid seems commonplace (vanilla, lavender, musk) YSL has managed to cultivate a new pillar that is SO UNIQUE. Libre, to me, outshines the likes of Mon Guerlain and L'interdit. The original is truly a scent of freedom - light, liberated, human. This new intense version feels like returning to the Lion's den after a day of hunting: she is focused, confident, and self-assured. It is the New York version of the original - the same feeling of freedom set against a stronger, more radiant background. Love love love the Libre line - looking forward to where the Brand takes its future flankers. Thank you YSL for helping the world smell BETTER!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
I think this is a really nice warm scent for autumn/winter and geared towards a mature audience. Its just too mature for me. Im not at this point in my life yet - I like something lighter. I thought this went on a bit powdery (scent-wise, reminded me of something my grandma would wear actually), but actually....I think after a few hours the scent settled better - the powdery-mess went away and I was left with maybe a warm vanilla? Slightly spiced? These arent my favorite things though (Ill need to remember this when answering surveys in the future....I may like sandalwood and cedar wood and patchouli- but not vanilla....) And holy cow does it last. I tried it on when I got home from work and my arm STILL smelled this morning when I woke up. To repeat - I slept with this on and if I hadnt showered, it would still be with me. Giving 3 stars, because its just not for me. Just because I dislike it doesnt mean it deserves 1 star though. Think my grandma will love it!

This scent smells amazing. Its is very intense. Sweet, with notes of vanilla and a slight musk. You do not need much, and the scent is long lasting.
INTENSE, But In A Good Way..

So after it arrived, of course I opened the box, beautiful packaging and the bottle has a unique look that catches the eye. After a few days of testing, I noticed that the intense (but delightful) warm notes over time mixed with my chemistry/pheromones, clicked!! A few sprits last me thoughtout the day. My thoughts on week two, is that I finally found my signature parfum! I would definitely purchase this as an gift to a dear friend. I highly recommend! You wont regret buying it! (THANK YOU Influenster and YSL for helping me find my signature parfum!!

A woman's woman's fragrance

Another woman walked by me and I stopped to ask what she was wearing. It is a bit gourmand but not sugar sick. Definitely some masculine notes that could make this unisex. Incredible sillage where I could still smell the middle notes even at the end of the day. Warm, spicy and mysterious. Love it and it'll be my new fall fragrance.

I received this from Influenster and YSL for free to review and provide my honest review. First the bottle is STUNNING. This definitely a vanity display bottle. I have to admit, Im extremely picky when it comes to scents. I smell prominent notes of vanilla and jasmine - though there are many other notes. The fragrance is sophisticated and subtly sexy. However, it doesnt mix with my natural scent and smells slightly mature on me. So, while I think it smells lovely in the bottle, it doesnt work for me. I will likely give to my mom or sister.
new fall time scent!
abarbuto from undisclosed
I was sent this for testing purposes and let me tell you I was surprised. I thought that it would be too much for me seeing its the eau de perfume intense. This is a beautiful, sexy scent and lasts a very long time. It settles to a lovely vanilla scent that I love. 10/10 would recommend!
great perfume to wear anytime or day

When I received this bottle I immediately tried it and I immediately LOVED it.. Not only is the scent exceptional, the bottle is beautiful and the scent stays with you a long time , like into next day long time.. I have gotten so many compliments on this perfume. I immediately smelled hints of orange blossom and some vanilla , this perfume is just wonderful.. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a long lasting and all around beautiful smell.. I will be purchasing this. Thank you

I absolutely love this fragrance. I first got my package I just got home from work at 4 am. I spritzed it on my wrist and thought it was heavenly. I went to bed and when I woke up I could still smell it! I usually wear miss dior but this is quickly becoming my favorite. It smells so fresh and amazing. My coworkers noticed it immediately. Definitely will purchase and sure to let others know.
this was a miss for me
annap8 from undisclosed
While the packaging is beautiful, the scent itself was a bit too much for me. I was hoping to pick up more on the orange blossom. I will say that I am very picky when it comes to scents though, so I often times have a hard time finding something that I love.

Initially, I was unsure about YSL Libre. This perfume is quite different from my usual scents of flowery and fruity and other YSL perfume, however after several uses I love it! The smell is a more mature, musky vanilla. This scent is more masculine but for me thats what really sets it apart. The scent doesnt last all day, but it does last longer than many of my other scents. The bottle is beautiful with the gold YSL logo and gold detail cap. Thank you Influenster for letting me try this product!

Such a beautiful scent ! Its very strong so you dont need much AT ALL! I dont know if its the best price wise, it seems pretty expensive for the size. I would recommend this more for a date night rather than an every day perfume.
Night time perfume
30smakeupbysarah from undisclosed
I really enjoy this for a night out perfume. It is not.overwhelming as some perfumes are. It is wonderful to have a luxury scent to add to my routine.
Rich and Prominent
sarasmilespro from undisclosed
I do enjoy this scent. It reminds me of my rich friends mom growing up. The scent lasts all day. My boyfriend likes it too as long as I dont use very much. Even a small spritz is overpowering right away. Good to wear it a bit before close interactions.
Intensely different perfume
heysalma from undisclosed
YSL Libre is a sexy scent that smells expensive for lack of a better word. I got the intense thinking it would be the Libre amplified. Disappointingly it smells like a cheap vanilla body spray. I exchanged it for the original.
Not for me
jjmommy from undisclosed
I love YSL perfumes like Black Opium and Mon Paris so initially I was over the moon happy that Influenster sent it my way, however this scent just isnt for me. Its heavy and just a little to mature for me, I like light, sweet scents. By all means this is not a bad perfume or stinky. Love how chic the bottle looks.
For the Classy Beauty
tanglesinherhair from undisclosed
I love this bottle its so effortlessly classy. I love its timeless design and scent. The hint of orange blossoms is really appealing to me. My father who loves craftsmanship was enamored with the build of the bottle. He said it must of been expensive to make. The scent lasts all day and isnt overwhelming. I will definitely buying this scent again for years to come!

"I received this product as a free sample, This perfume meshes well with my body chemistry. The scent is a powdery and floral sweet scent. So pretty I will definitely purchase it.

I'm so glad that I got to try this fragrance! I'm always a bit nervouswhen it comes to trying a new fragrance, because it's such a personal thing. The heartbreak of loving a fragrance and then hating how it smells on you is real!
YSL Libre has lavender essence, Moroccanorange blossom, and a musk accord which has notes of glowing orchid and warm vanilla. In other words, it's a warm fragrance with light, almost effervescent, fresh and sweet notes. It's almost like a Dr Pepper float with a hint of tangerine in the vanilla ice cream. In other words it smells deliciousand, thankfully, it makes me smell delicious as well.
One thing that should be noted is that this is the Libre EDP Intense, meaning that it's not a light fragrance. I only use one spray and I'm good all day. I've never had to freshen it up, even after cooking. It's delicious and amazing, but definitely use it sparingly.
this scent is POWERFUL
meaggiekc from undisclosed
But delicious! Its a very warm scent with just a little bit of sweetness. Feminine, but not overly. I cant see myself wearing this everyday, but maybe if Im going out or have a special occasion, just because the scent is so strong. I sprayed it on my wrist around 8am and could still smell it well into the night, so it lasts very long. The sweatshirt Id been wearing at the time held the scent for another day or two. The packaging is really pretty too!
sweet and sexy!!
lmsullivan27 from undisclosed
Okay this smell is so unique and sexy. It is strong at first, but when it settles, it is so sweet and delicious. I usually am drawn to more floral scents but this one really changed my mind. It lasts so long and everyone notices the sweetness. I have received tons of compliments. This is one of my new favorites.
Definitely worth trying!
noblueskies from undisclosed
Im so glad I got to try this fragrance. I dont usually like strong floral scents because they give me headaches. This one has enough sweetness to nicely balance the floral notes. Id say if this sounds like something you would like you should go for it and even if its not the kind of fragrance you usually wear its still worth testing or sampling if you have the chance. I received this product complimentary from Influenster.
Strong scent but beautiful perfume
minjam4285 from undisclosed
What I Love is the packaging. It is absolutely sexy and elegant. I would use the bottle as a decorative piece on my dresser or in a bath. Scent is strong, definitely powerful. It's not bad or good, just too strong for me personally. It is warm and sensual for sure. It does have floral scent, I mostly get orchid. I don't particularly like orchid smell. I don't get much of orange or vanilla. I would definitely not wear this perfume to work or during the day. I would possibly wear it only at night for going out. Even then I would spray only a tiny bit. I am 38 and feel this scent is for more mature audience. I would buy it in the future to gift it, but not for myself.
sweet and intense
anniejoyf from undisclosed
Libre Intense is exactly what it is, intense. It's a bit too sweet for my taste, as I usually go for light and floral fragrances. But if you're after a bright sweet warm smell, you must enjoy! I do love how simple and elegant the bottle looks sitting on my vanity.
jasminec9616 from undisclosed
Woww!!! I just love the smell of the perfume. It is warm, rich and spicy. It lasts all day long and i get alot of compliments. Definitely buying it again and would recommend everyone to try it once, you'll get addicted to it.
