Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme Libre
Availability: selected Edgars, Red Square and Stuttafords stores
Break free with L’Homme Libre. Top notes of basil and violet leaf enhanced by sharp spicy notes of nutmeg and pink pepper create a burst of freshness while deep woody vetiver and patchouli notes enriched with warm tones of leather create a trail of masculine sensuality.
What we say:
‘When it comes to fragrances I don’t like a strong scent someone can smell on you before you’ve even turned the corner. So when I got a bottle of YSL L’Homme Libre I wasn’t too sure what to expect. Partly due to the fact that I never knew that YSL created men’s fragrances. The silver box and round cylindrical bottle looked pretty classy, but for me it was all about how it smelt.
‘The first whiff I took of the fragrance was of pepper and old leather, which actually didn’t smell too bad to me. It was manly, clean and kinda fresh, which to me is how a guys’ fragrance should smell. So without hesitation I sprayed it on. Now would the scent last during the day? I found that it seemed to linger during the day and never had that overpowering smell some fragrances have. It lasted the entire day and when I arrived home that evening, my wife commented on how nice I smelt.
‘I have now been wearing YSL L’Homme Libre for a good couple of months and have found that it suits any occasion, whether its sunny, raining, day or night.’
