  1. Re: Can someone recommend smoething similar to YSL Libre ?

    If you like that one, stick with it and take a small "sample size" sprayer of it out with you.
    Then you can just re-spray during the day to "top it up"

    Re: Fragrances for summer

    Don't spray "in your hands" as they are always more likely to be warmer, causing quicker evaporation. Spray onto your neck and chest.
