When it comes to selecting a new scent from the ever-growing list of best perfumes for women, sometimes opting for a celeb's favorite is a good way to go—which is why when Dua Lipa let slip her go-to, we couldn’t help but spread the word to all our fellow fragrance-lovers. Debit cards at the ready…this is Dua Lipa’s perfume of choice.

The Levitating singer is known for being quite the trendsetter, especially when it comes to Y2K fashion trends but now it seems she’s become our fragrance guru too—after she revealed to Glamour (opens in new tab) that her favorite perfume is actually one of the top 10 most popular feminine fragrances of all time.

So if you’ve been torn between buying a vanilla perfume or a floral perfume, allow Dua to guide you…

What is Dua Lipa’s Perfume go-to?

So what is her day-to-day perfume you ask? Well, it’s none other than YSL Libre—which makes the fact that she’s the face of Libre itself very fitting.

Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum

RRP: $85 /£59

Top Notes: Tangerine, Neroli, Lavender.
Heart Notes: Jasmine Sambac, Orange Blossom.
Base Notes: White Musks, Vanilla Extract.

This scent is designed to feel sophisticated and sensual, the notes of vanilla and orange blossom make it sweet, while the musk notes add depth and make the perfume smell warm and inviting. 

My Imperfect Life’s Lifestyle News Writer, Naomi Jamieson, is a big fan of the cult scent, saying: "I treated myself to Libre at Christmas last year and am still obsessed with it. It’s such a warm, effortless scent that just makes me feel so chic the moment I’ve sprayed it on. I even love it at the end of the day, when it’s slightly softer —and you can smell it on your clothes for days and days which I adore. Plus, it really does pay for itself in compliments… "


Speaking about her favorite perfume, Dua said: “It's been my signature smell for four years since I've been working with YSL. A big part of it is that I felt involved from the beginning. When we were first talking about the campaign, they showed me the different options of the fragrance before they chose the final one.

“And I still feel like I played a little part in choosing the fragrance itself. I think that's why I'm even more attached to it rather than just the face of it. I feel like it's very ‘me’.”

She then added that she keeps a bottle in nearly every one of her handbags and said: “I get a lot of compliments as well on it. There's nothing nicer than people going, ‘You smell really nice.’” So true.

Libre itself is a very sensual scent with notes of Tangerine, Neroli, Jasmine, Orange blossom, white musk and of course vanilla. It’s aromatic and warm, making it a perfect fall/ winter fragrance and is actually third on our list of which perfumes last the longest—making it great value for money. It’s designed to be more of a unisex scent that is both classic and bold.
