Shortly after releasing a commercial for its Nuit de l’Homme perfume starring French actor Vincent Cassel, French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent has tapped another Black Swan collaborator, French dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, for L’Homme Libre, set to launch this fall. Millepied has stepped into the limelight ever since marrying Hollywood actress Natalie Portman — also the face of Dior’s Miss Dior Chérie fragrance — whom he met on the set of the movie. L’Homme Libre — composed of bergamot, pink pepper, and patchouli — will be released in September.
“I’m happy and proud to have been chosen by Yves Saint Laurent, one of the world’s most prestigious brands. I admire the world of this House, its elegance and modernity. Monsieur Saint Laurent was a fashion genius, a lover of the Arts, he also knew how to use his talent to serve the art of dancing,” Benjamin said in a statement
