Alien meets Mon Guerlain
We all perceive fragrances differently. A wonderful example is (in my case) the comparison between Ariana Grande's "Cloud" and "Baccarat Rouge 540". Some say the similarity between the two scents is startling, but I hardly notice it. I'm sure other "perfumos" will feel the same way when they read this comment here.
What I have been looking forward to this day. Yesterday, a sample package reached me and I could finally test "Libre" for the first time. 2 sprays on the clothes and one on the hand - the first impression? Jasmine, amber, a rather strong sillage, rather cool- that seems very familiar to me. "Alien!". Yes, "Libre" reminds me of "Alien." However, this does not mean that it is a dupe. "Alien" is sweeter, a bit more full-bodied, and has an even stronger sillage. "Libre" smells to me more like the scent could be a flanker of the "Alien" series. The lavender note is definitely present and adds a slightly masculine touch. However, the vanilla ensures that it doesn't develop too harshly. That said, "Libre" is by no means warm or overly sweet. Despite the stronger projection, you can definitely wear it in warmer weather. Incidentally, the lavender note also evokes an association in me: "Mon Guerlain". However, apart from this one note, "Mon Guerlain" is then very different. Much sweeter and more romantic. No, "Alien" is the fragrance that exudes a comparable aura. In terms of durability, they are also comparable - they last all day. Still unsure if I need "Libre" in my collection as "Alien" gives me a similar feeling. I love them both. But I will aufjedenfall once try the Intense version, because this is to show again completely different facets of "Libre"
