Recently in the perfume laboratory
Two people dressed in white coats talking:

Karl: Moin Meister, what are we doing today?
Anna: We're creating a new perfume, commissioned by some French fashion designer, Öwwes Somehow. It wasn't Roscher... It doesn't matter...
Karl: Oh cool, we already discussed that in the 1st year of apprenticeship, perfume gel right?
Anna: Almost, the school is not up-to-date, we don't have something as dusty as this organ anymore, we use the Parfum-O-Mat 2000.

Karl's eyes are getting big. Anna means to walk him into the back corner of the lab where there is an inconspicuous black box with a laptop attached, similar to the things used in the CSI series to analyze DNA samples and convict the killer.

Anna: Here's our sweetheart, I've already booted it up and calibrated it with Mainstream
Karl: With what exactly is this calibrated?
Anna: With 1mL each La Vie est Belle, Cool Water, Coco Mademoiselle and 4711 Genuine cologne water, these are our four cornerstones in the frame of which we want to move, olfactory.
Karl: Why these and no mono fragrances or more unusual creations?
Anna: With niche fragrances we would calibrate if we wanted to make niches, with mono fragrances if we were quite creative, for a standard designer fragrance this calibration is sufficient. We have conducted surveys and these calibration fragrances are among the top 10 in their category. If one of them is not in stock at the moment, we take something comparable or leave the point out, no one will notice afterwards anyway...
Karl: I see...
Anna: Ready to land your first big litter?
Karl (hesitantly): Hm.............yes?
Anna: Don't worry, you can't do anything wrong, the system is foolproof. Here, just select 2-3 popular fragrances from the list of designer fragrances you want to combine. These are then displayed in the upper window and the fragrances appear directly below. If you click on them, you can make them stronger or weaker or delete them completely. If you like it, click on "Brew" and the first litre will be mixed together and filled into the amber glass bottle. At the same time, a file with the exact recipe is created and both are sent to the client. All right?
Karl: Yes, sounds totally easy. But how do I know the first try's gonna be something? Can you also mix less than 1L together, so you can test if you like it and do not directly waste so many raw materials?
Anna: Ah super economy you had probably also already? I like the way you think. I omitted one important detail. Here's the two tubes hanging out of the machine, you stick them up your nose. If you want to smell your creation, you press "Sniff" above the Brew button, then a fragrance is introduced into the nose via the tubes, but don't press it more than once, otherwise you'll never get the fragrance out of your nose again. That happened to me once, the touchpad had some kind of hanger and triggered the button five times in a row, I couldn't pull out the hoses that fast, the system is very reactive. I for a whole week was nothing to mix with because I had the smell of pompous flowers in my nose. But enough talk, let's go!
Karl: Okay, let's see, I'll just take this one and this one.
Anna: Ah Mon Guerlain EdP, good choice and Calvin Klein Women EdP, well there I am curious. Here behind the fragrance you can enter the percentage distribution of the shares.
Karl: Well, then I just take from the first 10, no wait 15% and from the second we take 85%.
Anna: Very good, now the scents: Turn on what you like, click away what you don't like.
Karl: Ok, that's easy, orange blossom full volume, lavender very quiet and eucalyptus has to come out. Ready.
Anna: Great, let's have a nose of it before we brew it. Everybody gets a hose, that'll have to do.

They shove their hoses up their noses full of expectation. Anna nods to Karl, he replies the gesture, then presses you on "Sniff". A fast little rumble, a quiet hissing, something rattles and lightning fast the fragrance flows into the noses.

Anna: Not bad at all, for your first creation! Bravo, it's as good as sold. I'm planning on it, some nice bottle, a young thing, maybe a top model or singer, does the advertising, a snappy name...And they'll give us some more cosmopolitan pseudonyms, unfortunately that's always the case.
Karl: How already finished, that was nevertheless only now the top note, we do not work further on it?
Anna: Nonsense creation succeeded. The fragrance has to convince in the first 3 minutes in the perfumery, head note catcher one calls it, if one is bad. And time is money, the budget is tight, we have to create 5 more perfumes today. A pleasing designer fragrance it has become.
Karl: ok, now I press Brew?
Anna: Let's go, the file got the code L-1br€, please write this later in your logbook.

Somewhat disillusioned that it went so fast to create a new scent is Karl already, somehow he missed the magic. On the other hand, which trainee already has a self-created fragrance on the perfumery shelves?!

You smell good
But you smell good, said my husband and the next day I got a bottle of Libre as a gift. ( does not happen often, he does not like perfume)
This fragrance is shaping up to be my new favorite. I love cool, elegant fragrances and so is he.I have not wanted to test him for a long time because I actually do not like lavender, but here the lavender blends in harmoniously and prevents the vanilla from becoming too sweet.
Libre lasts 7 - 8 hours with me, I wear him at any time and occasion, he lifts my self-confidence.
I'm thrilled.

I am so free
Today the husband pointed out the new " Ysel " to me, and smiled one.

He takes my craving for perfume lightly - and that's where it belongs.
Serious beer shouldn't be a hobby.

And Libre's salutation is also: "I am so free - because he greets me lightly and airily.

Neroli cools and the mandarin provides aquatics - fresh piously cheerful free - and I think it's about to become sporty.

No - the lavender radiates peace - brightened by the jasmine.
Maybe a nap in the early afternoon?

Vanilla and ambergris appear sweet - and the bell rings.

Cedar and musk invite you to an elegant soiree.

This fragrance has so many pleasant facets - and they all appeal to me.

I like him - I'm so free

Retro-floral
It takes a load off my mind. Libre...I was afraid that he would hit back into still current LVEB/Si/MonGuerlain mainstream notch. I'm glad I didn't. Besides, I was still a little mutilated because of the name recycling. Eau Libre smelled in grey prehistoric times, he was fantastically fresh, and then a new one under quasi the same name? Blasphemy, so I thought - see Joy.
All right, let's disregard that name. Flacon is beautiful, there's nothing to shake.
The first spray makes me breathe a sigh of relief. No gourmand, no cotton candy. Direct orange blossom Absolu, with something slightly marzipan behind it, but still a little green.
I read about alien hints, perhaps due to the jasmine samba...but I can't find this relationship, even if this note becomes more present in the course of time and tries to cover the orange notes. But it doesn't become as omniscient as it could be, but remains flowery. 80s flowery, retro-flowery, white-flowered. Uschi Blum.
Lavender comes into my test late, and doesn't make a big entrance.
However, the basis is very familiar and unspectacular, musk.
All in all a pleasant surprise, even for me I am by no means a friend of too many flowers, except Uschi.
Unfortunately I don't know Manifesto, so I can't make any comparisons with it.
Shelf life quite ok. I am glad that I could refute my own prejudice, but Libre will not become my favorite, he is too bafflingly musky for that. But I'm sure he'll find his customers.

Cool lavender
Me and Libre was difficult at first. Why, I do not know.

Yet he is so bright, fresh, special and insanely modern.

Orange blossom and neroli is actually not so my case. Often it is much too strong and dense for me.

But in Libre it is not oppressive, but fresh and radiant. Whether that is due to the combination with the wonderful crested lavender and the dreamlike jasmine, I do not know.

At the beginning pleases me a beautifully fruity top note, which does not remain very long so but is simply a dream.
What then follows is for me but much, much nicer.

A dream lavender that just smells sooo fantastic that I am absolutely in seventh heaven.
Libre is somehow most of the time cool, refreshing, intoxicating and above all good mood making.

It really fills the room, by the way. The sillage is insane. The shelf life good at 8-10h.
If then 7h are around, he actually becomes a bit warm, cuddly and tame. A bit like Mon Guerlain. Even if he has nothing in common with him before, in my opinion.

Wear Libre I feel incredibly self-confident, strengthened and happy, yes "free".

Unfortunately, I can not understand the criticism of this fragrance. He is by no means "arbitrary", "boring" or even "0815".
He is for me a very special feel-good fragrance and is one of my favorites.

Extremely feminine but not "shouted" bouquet : The neroli note is soft, round, warm, not too vibrant. A well balanced classy daily scent
