Libre vs. Libre Intense
Hello my dear friends of perfume and welcome to my advent calendar door number 7. For all of you who are wondering why there was no door yesterday, I wrote the comment to Lost Cherry already a year and a half ago and yesterday I only attached the video. But now to today's Türchen and a comparison of the two YSL fragrances Libre and Libre Intense.

I tested the Libre Eau de Parfum shortly after its release, was not exactly enthusiastic about the overexcited orange blossom-lavender combination, which I simply found loudly screaming, exhausting and insanely unimaginative, and wrote a corresponding, humorous contribution to it.
So now Libre, the Eau de Parfum Intense, phew. Released at the same time as Idole L'Intense, but it's clear that the competition from generic women's fragrances isn't sleeping. So, enough laces distributed!
A first test in summer gave hope for bigger things. In contrast to the original scent, I liked the Intense version right away. It came across as less upturned and rounder.

So I wanted to have both Libres compete against each other again to find out both the differences and the similarities:
Both were conceived by the same perfumer. Both contain orange blossom and lavender. The fragrance pyramid of the Intense version promises a more complex scent and that's how it is. Libre starts out fresh, overdone, with a certain disturbing note of neroli, lavender and orange blossom, which tickles my nose unpleasantly. With Intense I also perceive the orange blossom, but much more delicate, tender, sweet lavender is added. Libre develops unpleasantly soapy, almost detergent-like sharpness, never completely gets rid of this disturbing note, always seems overexcited, as if one had artificially pimped a thin voice to make it a Top 10 chart position. In the Intense version, the vanilla sweetness of the tonka bean continues to develop, inviting you to cuddle and pause So I have been wearing it every evening for a few days now, sniffing enraptured at the enveloping sweetness, speckled with orange and lavender flowers and considering investing in a large bottle, it's almost Christmas ;)

If you like Libre as an everyday scent, you could try the Intense version as an evening supplement. Those who don't know what to do with Libre are also advised to test it. Although Libre Eau de Parfum Intense does not reinvent the mainstream women's fragrance wheel, it still plays skilfully and attractively with the flowery and sweet aromas and seduces to winterly cuddling and feeling good.

Sweet, vanilla, sensual, a little wooden and earthy.
I had received the scent as a specimen.
It is an elegant, very long lasting and intense fragrance.
In the first hour the scent was much too masculine for me, afterwards it was more floral, but still too heavy for me.
It is more suitable for the evening, but does not meet my personal taste.

Great smell!
The classic version of Libre was not so mine, too much lavender drowning everything out. But when I heard or read that the Intense version is supposed to be sweeter, I was so excited. Before I even smelled it in the perfumery, I ordered a bottling.... My god the scent flashed me! It still has that lavender note and something masculine about it, but now it also has something feminine and delicate, I can smell the tangerine and the orange blossom... Unfortunately, for me personally, discovering the fragrance has passed an unpleasant time in my life, so that it is taboo for me at first, but sometime I look forward to get it and enjoy it without bad memories?

I want it all.....
I was once again in the perfumery with a list of fragrances that I wanted to test all of them. To my surprise, the perfumery in my neighbourhood has more and more niche fragrances. I tested my way through but none of the fragrances on my list were convincing. So I looked through the shelves for the designer scents. The shop assistant asked if I knew YSL Libre. I turned away because I did not like the scent at all.

But she pointed to YSL Libre Intense and said it was new. I already liked this pretty bottle with the darker liquid. I could not imagine that I could like the Intense version. I still felt so attracted to it as if it was calling me. Try me.... try me.... i am different! ;-) I thought to myself, after so many boring scents, one more wouldn't matter anymore either.

Oh, my God! I was speechless when I smelled the scent. :-) I sniffed the scent. Love at first sniff. :-) I sprayed on my wrists and enjoyed the heavenly smell all day long. It's addictive.

Like from the song by Queen: I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now! :-)

If there was a perfume shower, I would enjoy it daily with YSL Libre Intense! But it also lasts super long with only a few sprays! As far as I am concerned, I try to replace the perfume shower of course. More is more! *grin*

Wonderfully beautiful scent! It smells sensual, seductive the lavender is pleasant and the dry down is on me a wonderful vanilla! Beautiful flacon!

Love Love

The search is over...
...once you've found what you're looking for - that's obvious ;)
My testing of bottlings and samples (my ❤lichsten thanks to this wonderful community :*), my (blind) purchases and exchanges and also perfumery visits were always connected with the desire to find THE ONE fragrance for me.
I longed for the uncomplicated way to reach for the perfume bottle - just spray it and know that I feel comfortable and secure and at the same time smell feminine and perfumed.

This uncomplicated relationship had last led to sensations from Jil Sander before his reformulation. For years he was my companion and could therefore be called a signature.
These had to be replaced now.

In the meantime I have come to realize that I need a change depending on the season and that orange blossom in combination with light jasmine is my great love of perfume. I also like light sweetness and a little bit of synthetics.
Furthermore, after a short excursion through the niche world I realized that I have a weakness for the "evil" mainstream fragrances :D

My collection is "perfect for me" in the foreseeable future.
Libre Intense is at the top of my wish list.

Besides THE ONLY ONE INTENSE it is the ideal orange blossom scent for me. It's not about one or the development, but the overall impression a fragrance can give me from beginning to end. It is not decisive how a perfume smells when I approach it with my nose, but what aura it gives.
Libre Intense completely fulfills my personal demands for a good perfume.

Softness, warmth, sensuality, femininity and sunshine through orange blossom and jasmine,
Security and light edge through lavender,
light sweetness through creamy vanilla-tonka and attraction through ambergris.

I sold the original lib after initial infatuation, because it was too pointed and screeching in the top note and had undergone a too strongly masculine development. At first the similarity between it and the new release was too great for me. But after longer testing I found a positive difference.

Libre Intense the disruptive factors were taken away and I am happy with it.
Although I only have one bottling here, one bottle will definitely move in with me.
He will get a permanent place in my collection and will accompany me in the future in all the autumn and winters I may still experience...

A wonderfully fragrant finale to my signature search! ❤

The last rays of the sun and colourful, rustling leaves
I am thrilled, I have been wearing this fragrance for a few days now and enjoy every moment with it and how it changes on my skin.

I like every single fragrance contained, but the base is my favourite.

After spraying the perfume, I stand in a fruity floral fragrance cloud. The orange blossom and lavender are clearly noticeable to me. A lavender as tender as if it never blows around your nose in the garden. The orange blossom is much more present there. And he is sweet from the first moment on
After about 1 hour the base arrives at my place.
Exactly the scent, which is now lying on my skin and playing around my nose, moved me to buy it.

I enjoy this dry, sweet-woody warm ambergris fragrance, interwoven with vanilla and tonka This fragrance calls for a cuddly cashmere blanket, a golden-yellow fireplace and the wonderful bright autumn colours.

I would like to put on my wool cardigan and walk through rustling colorful foliage in the sinking sun, with brown leather boots.

For me, Libre edp Intense is my new autumn scent. :)

Fruity and creamy in the late summer evening
It is characterized by tasty, fruity and juicy oranges that have seen a lot of sunshine. It pleases me better than the predecessor . The fragrance is very creamy and warm with vanilla, tonka bean and ambergris, which is a guarantee for a good shelf life. What I like here is that the fragrance not only ends kawumäßig in the giant glass of orange juice, but the diversity of the ingredients. Lavender and jasmine give it the warmth of a beautiful late summer evening. Durability I indicate with 6/8 hours, bottle is attractive and elegant. To give it away or to keep it yourself is certainly a nice venture.
I have a little difficulty with the orange blossom in perfumes - it's not mine, but here it is finely and discreetly interwoven with the other companions and appeals to me. Here one experiences a real creaminess which is very flattering. Three sizes are available at moderate prices.
