Since it first saw the light, the Maison Louis Vuitton based all its creations on travel, and the proof is the famed trunk – which has now become an icon of the fashion world in its own right. This time around, the celebrated fashion house dives deeper into the intimacy and the abstraction of this continuous movement to nourish the skin, instead of the body and spirit, with captivating perfumes.
Unexpected emotions were in the mind of Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud – native of Grasse, the land of perfume and leatherwork – when he travelled the five continents in search for exotic and rare materials. His aim was to create scents that transport the person who smells them to the other side of their own world.
Les parfums Louis Vuitton are seven scents bursting with femininity: Rose des Vents, Turbulences, Dans La Peau, Apogée, Contre Moi, Matière Noire and Mille Feux. The photo’s below will take you on a journey to the world of emotions, so let the adventure begin!
