Scents: Libre – the fragrance for women
With the successful singer Dua Lipa as brand ambassador, Yves Saint Laurent celebrates the freedom and strength of women. The classic men’s fragrance was transformed into a feminine women’s fragrance by perfumer Anne Flipos. Which is typical of Yves Saint Laurent, as he brought the tuxedo into the women’s wardrobe. In the Yves Saint Laurent Libre fragrance, a hint of bourbon vanilla meets lavender, and together with warm orange blossom forms a perfume that is both femininely warm and masculine cold. With its slanted Yves Saint Laurent logo and the slanted black cap, the otherwise minimalist perfume has a sophisticated look and embodies freedom and strong power women, because Libre stands for “being free”.

Women & Men’s fashion combined
Yves Saint Laurent completely turned the women’s wardrobe upside down, and is therefore considered a revolutionary in the fashion world. He did what few would have dared to do in the 1950s: Yves Saint Laurent put suits that were previously only worn by men into women’s closets. The image of women in the 1950s was very different from the image of women in the 21st century. A woman should look as feminine and feminine as possible, which is why dresses and skirts were so popular. For Yves Saint Laurent, it was true that despite wearing a suit, one did not have to look masculine.
Yves Saint Laurent – Life & Label
With the abbreviation YSL not everyone knows directly who is behind the high fashion brand. Many ask themselves the question who is behind YSL, namely it is the revolutionary designer Yves Saint Laurent who was born in Oran, Algeria. The designer aroused an interest in fashion and design in his childhood. After his unfinished training as a fashion and stage designer in Paris, he started working for Dior. Some time later he founded his own label which developed into a successful luxury label. Yves Saint Laurent died in Paris in 2008. The luxury label was owned by the Gucci Group, and was subsequently bought by the Kering S.A. Group.
