L'Homme Libre by Yves St. Laurent
Violet, Spice, Anise.
Patchouli, Vetiver, Leather.
A very large atomizer was given to me recently by one of my softball players. He's very partial to scent, but as a young man in his twenties, his tastes are indicative of his peer group. I completely understand why he likes what he likes and also why he doesn't care for what he deems "too mature". As he gave me the atomizer, he informed me that he thought I would like it much more than he did. It simply wasn't "fresh enough or in keeping with his other acquisitions".
After wearing L'Homme Libre, I can see how this scent isn't along the same lines as others my player gravitates to. However, it isn't a bad creation by any means. Perhaps a bit generic, safe and possibly lacking imagination, it still smells pleasant enough that I would be in error to denigrate it.
Sillage is acceptable and longevity is approximately 5 hours on me. A neutral rating from Aromi with positive attributes. A sample wear is definitely recommended.
