L’Homme Libre by Yves Saint Laurent

XavierAug 11, 2016 Cologne Reviews

I am a big fan of YSL. La Nuit De L’Homme is one of my favorite scents from the house. That being said I was excited to get my hands on another flanker from YSL. L’Homme Libre by Yves Saint Laurent let’s get into it.

Presentation

This bottle resembles the other L’Homme bottles. Cylindrical with a nice heavy cap. The sprayer works great like all the other YSL L’Homme bottles. My bottle has a slight blue tint towards the bottom which fades into the clear bottle. I like the touch of blue added to the sprayer line to complete this.  Overall nice bottle.

Notes & Scent

Top Notes: Star Anise, Basil, Violet Leaf and Bergamot

Middle Notes:  Nutmeg and Pink pepper.

Base Notes:  Vetiver and Patchouli.

When I put on L’Homme Libre, I get a very fresh aquatic scent. The opening starts off with a strong blast of Violet Leaf blended well with Basil and Bergamot. It’s hard to pick out the notes on this scent as they are blended together well. I really like the way this scent starts of. As this fragrance starts to wear down I start to get more of the typical YSL DNA with the Patchouli. Overall I really do like this scent, I have heard comments from people saying it smells like Axe Spray and I can understand that vibe a little, but I personally like what YSL has done.

Projection

Ohh now to the projection. This is my biggest gripe about this fragrance. I love the fresh aquatic patchouli mix but man this does not last on my skin. I get moderate projection for the first 1-3 hours and after that it really becomes a skin scent. Man how I wish this scent would project ????

Longevity

Unfortunately this L’Homme Libre does not last at all. Man how I wish it did. This is mainly a skin scent that last around 4-6 hours on my skin.

Versatility

Season:

Age Group:any age group

Very versatile fragrance that is not too daring.  I could see this working in an office environment or in a casual setting. I see L’Homme Libre as mainly a summer or spring scent.

Price $45- $90



My Overall Feedback

Overall I really like this scent. I like the way YSL has blended this and it reminds me of an aquatic version of La Nuit De L’homme. But unfortunately it lacks in performance. For the money you’re spending I would expect better longevity and projection from this. I think there are better options for a fresh aquatic summer/spring scent.

Brooklyn's Feedback

This fragrance is very nice. Another great cuddler scent. If you want your lady to come close, get this juice.

Ever since I was young, I have always loved to smell great. Cologne head all the way. Now that I am older I still love going to the mall or local shops to smell the latest fragrances. Always looking to make my collection of scents larger :)
