Sustainability Above All
Believing in making the world a better place, the marvels used in the making of Libre are sustainably sourced. Diva Lavender heart is part of a program that promotes the return of lavender drops in France. Lavandin heart is sustainably sourced to improve the fellow farmers’ income by ensuring stable prices over the long term. Vanilla is sustainably sourced in Madagascar through a community program with a premium price to promote growth in the fellow farmers’ income by 25%.
i. DIVA LAVENDER HEART France
Grown in the low mountain areas of Provence, France, the Diva Lavender heart is the secret behind the fragrance’s flamboyance. Exclusive to YSL Beauty, the Diva Lavender represents the warmest, sweetest facet of the lavender essence. Hand-harvested and steam-distilled, the 100% natural essential oil is fractionated with carbon dioxide to draw out its most beautiful feminine fractions.
ii. LAVANDIN HEART France
The hybrid of two exquisite species of lavender flowers, — Lavandula and Intermedia — the Lavandin is a favourite because of its powerful fragrance. For the best quality, only the freshly picked floral heads are used in the making of Libre. Steam-distilled and deconstructed through molecular distillation to resemble a “heart”, this particular quality and form are unique to YSL Beauty. This long-lasting floral perfume wouldn’t have come to life without it.
iii. ORANGE FLOWER ABSOLUTE HEART Morocco
The sensuous, lush notes of Libre stem from the Orange Flower Absolute heart, also known as Orange Blossom heart. Drawing on every fibre of femininity, the concentrate of the flower is so rich and fragrant, it becomes almost carnal. Hand-harvested by women and grown in the regions of Rabat-Salé-Kenitra, this sweet white flower was love at first scent, and is one of the ingredients behind this long-lasting floral perfume.
iv. VANILLA BOURBON PURE JUNGLE ESSENCE™ Madagascar
The source of the divine aroma of Libre, the Vanilla flower must be pollinated by hand upon maturity and dried for six months before it becomes Libre. Using Jungle Essence™, YSL’s cutting-edge extraction technology, the rich aroma of the pod is acquired.
