Ma Liberté fragrance notes

Reviews of Ma Liberté

Some have said that this is a substitute for Patou Pour Homme. I would say in part by structure. Both share a background of Sweetened buttery richness and build their bouquets and accord upon this. I find they diverge properly to their Female and Male corners. Ma Liberte becomes prettier, softer, quieter, fluid and dries to an Exquisite powder,reminiscent of the sillage of Tiffany for Men and Habit Rouge. Pour Homme, for me, seems peppery and stiff, with it's Geranium and Clary Sage.
Ma Liberte, in spite of it's Feminine marketing strikes me, with it's discreet powder, thoroughly Genderless in wear.

I do think Ma Liberte smells similar to Patou Pour Homme Prive. They both strike me as unisex or even feminine-leaning. I'm finding them similar in the same way I find Egoiste similar to Egoiste Concentree, Dior Homme similar to Dior Homme Intense, and Antaeus similar to Antaeus Sport. I think I could usually tell them apart, but they're not so different that I necessarily have a strong preference.

Another fragrance I find similar to this is the first version of Parfum d'Habit (1988) by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier, in the red bottle with argyle stripes.

I am chaging my neutral review to positive for this fragrance. I am getting more and more drawn towards its soft lavender charms.

Ma Liberte for it’s Patou house note and Heritage for it’s Guerlinade have become my go to fragrances these days. Both are a perfect mix of traditional and modern notes.

Beautiful, just beautiful. Citrus lavender rose opening with a great dry down to the basenotes which are perfectly blended to reflect more than the individual notes. Too bad, so sad it's not produced today.

A masterpiece. Period.

This is one of the most underrated scents in the world of perfumery, and should be one of the most praised. Although "for women", it fits GREAT for men. If you are a man and know "Jean Patou pour Homme Prive", you will not disappointed since there are a lot of similarities.

Absolutely "blind buy", "top pick", "thumbs up".

Pros: Extraordinary quality ingredients.
Cons: discontinued.</p>

Ma Liberte opens with a very nice lavender note with an undertone that can best be described as a sour lemon and an ever-so slightly powdery heliotrope. The lavender and supporting sour lemon tandem hangs around well into the heart of the scent, now joined by additional florals of jasmine and extremely faint rose. The dry-down consists of the remaining ever-persistent lavender joining clove and nutmeg spice, with a relatively well-concealed cedar wood backbone. Projection is average and longevity is excellent.

Ma Liberte is one of Jean Kerleo's greatest compositions... and regrettably discontinued. It has been compared by some to probably Kerleo's greatest composition in Patou pour Homme Prive, and I definitely see where they are coming from. That said, while I would love to say Ma Liberte was as good as that masterpiece of masterpieces, while the lavender used in the two is probably the same stuff (and the best I have ever smelled for sure) Ma Liberte primarily differs in having a sour lemon undertone at the open and early heart that just rubs me as just a tad bit "off" and gets more spicy in the base, where Patou pour Homme Prive perfects the earlier lavender dominant composition by being much more polished and smooth throughout. Make no mistake, Ma Liberte is an outstanding scent in its own right and few will ever get the chance to smell, let alone own the long-since discontinued Patou pour Homme Prive as it is one of the most rare and highly sought out scents you can find at approximately $500 a bottle nowadays... Those who have Rolls Royce taste on a Volkswagen budget should be extremely happy with Ma Liberte and its approximate current $50 a discontinued bottle price tag. No, it may not be a replacement, but you get 85% of Prive's quality at 10% of the cost, earning a superlative 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5 rating and a "must buy" recommendation for fans of oriental florals in particular.
