Is Yves Saint Laurent Perfume Worth The Price Tag?

It is no surprise that Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) is one of the most coveted designer labels well-known for their it bags. Did you know that Algerian-born Yves Saint Laurent worked for the designer Christian Dior as a teen after moving to Paris before starting his own namesake label in 1961 (via Who What Wear)? The brand has come a long way since then and has become synonymous with one of the most well-known luxury brands in the world. YSL was actually the first makeup and fragrance brand to have a fashion house's name attached to it (via Vanity Fair).

YSL Libre Eau De Parfum is a bold and feminine luxury fragrance. According to their website, it is a perfume for the brave and the free who like to break boundaries and pave their own way. It is also available in Eau De Toilette and Eau De Parfum Intense versions for a slightly lighter and bolder scent. It is a blend of French lavender essence combined with Moroccan orange blossom and vanilla extract to give it a feminine yet daring smell. The perfume was created by Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim and launched in 2019 (via Fragrantica). Regarding longevity, people described it as being between weak and long-lasting but considered the smell to be quite strong, but is it worth the money?

YSL Libre Eau De Parfum is the perfect floral perfume for bold women

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Libre Eau De Parfum is a warm floral perfume with lavender, orange blossom, and vanilla keynotes. It is a bold yet feminine fragrance for those who live by their own rules and represents a celebration of freedom. The bottle is a piece of art as well with the iconic YSL it bags, because it has gold chains around the neck. It is also available in various sizes, with the most popular one being 1 oz. that retails for $80 at Sephora.

Grammy-award-winning Dua Lipa considers this her everyday perfume, because "it feels natural, and smells really good" (via Vogue). The singer, who is also the face of the perfume, said she loves how this is mixed with orange blossom (generally used in male fragrances), giving it a strong accent. Who What Wear considers it one of their top three perfumes because a quick spritz can make you smell insanely good. 

It is a perfect blend of intoxicating and grounding scents. Stylecraze even considers it one of their best, because it smells timeless and can be worn day or night. It has the right balance of bold and sweet to compliment anyone's style. Elle agrees and calls this enchanting perfume "sensual yet intimidating" and a memorable scent, so anyone who gets a whiff of it will be intoxicated and remember you forever. With all this praise, it seems Libre Eau De Parfum is worth it. However, if you are not ready to commit, you can try their travel size to see if you love it.
