Day Lipa for Yves Saint Laurent’s Libre Eau de Parfum Intense
Dua Luis has taken the world by storm and quickly established her place as a music industry icon.

The formula is bold and intense while still remaining feminine. It combines YSL’s Parisian influence of French lavender with Moroccan orange blossom and a note of vanilla extract, all coming together in an intense combination.
Promise by Jennifer Lopez

Promise combines embodies Italian tangerine, jasmine, honeysuckle, pear, and berry notes for a woody elegant scent. According to Lopez, the perfume was inspired by her desire to inspire women to keep promises not just to others, but to themselves as well, making it the perfect accompaniment to those New Year’s resolutions.
