Black Gold Louis Vuitton Pur Oud

Created just for the Middle East, Louis Vuitton’s new fragrance, Pur Oud, pays homage to the region’s iconic woody note. “The finest raw materials are perfumes in their own right”, says Jacques Cavallier Belletrud , master perfumer for the French Maison, and the mind behind the Maison’s latest fragrance. The perfume is, as its name suggests, composed almost entirely of natural Oud essence, making it exceptional in the world of perfumery. 

Following the release of Ombre Nomad, Les Sables Roses and Nuit de Feu, Louis Vuitton’s Oud fragrance collection continues to honour once again the culture of smell in the Middle East by offering a fragrance for the region’s most emblematic ingredient: Oud. The fact that the new scent is almost only made out of Assam Oud makes it perfect for layering, especially with Ombre Nomad.

Inspired by the Middle Eastern traditions of applying perfume and the culture of Oud, wonders of the world in its purest, truest and most luxurious images. Pure Oud perfume for fans of ‘Wood of the Gods’ the opportunity to appreciate one of the most beautiful wonders of the world in its purest, truest and most luxurious images. Louis Vuitton and Belletrud finally set upon an essence of Assam oud, produced by a family, who ‘maintains a sustainable forest, farmed ethically’.

I wanted to create something exceptional, that smells like a luxury. I was amazed by the way women and men practice layering in the Middle East, mixing and applying their very personal oud preparation. I wanted to offer an oud signature from Louis Vuitton, which is why I’ve invited the Middle Eastern style of perfumery into the Louis Vuitton flacon.

Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, Louis Vuitton -inhouse- master perfumer

It is said that it is the scent of paradise and its meaning in Arabic ‘wood’ Oud is an absolute component of any raw material that has great depth and multiple aspects, as if it contains all other aspects, it is a treasure of nature it is the precious ‘black gold’ to the extent that the finest in its purity is reserved for an exclusive elite of people. The Oud contains countless distinctive ingredients where it offers its fans a completely unique experience, in its complex components and richness of symbolism and global resonance the oud is a journey in itself, smuggled through time and space, a gateway to the absolute world.

To present the purest expression of oud by simplifying one of the most beautiful fragrances in the world is the essence of pure oud, to highlight the raw beauty of this rare ingredient, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud created a near-contradictory encounter between the dreary character of the Oud focused on 10% of the composition and luminous softness of two types of white musk, ambrettolide and helvetolide. A gentle and slightly fruity helveled, and a delicate cotton empreted. The Oud weaves into an ornate cocoon that encapsulates and supports it without strangulation, and emerges from it strong wooden puffs and reveals the richness of its animal reflections.

It is important to note that the agar trees used to create oud have been declared a potentially threatened species by CITES, making the harvesting of oud for fragrances potentially environmentally damaging. To ensure they are maintaining the least harmful production practices possible, Vuitton is working with a family-run team of producers in Bangladesh, who have cultivated oud for the past 200 years. 

Pure Oud is available in the French Maison’s iconic perfume flacon, but this time in stained black glass. Pure, dense and deep to the point that, paradoxically, it reveals a stunning reflection of light, such as the fragrance it carries.

Louis Vuitton Pur Oud is available as 100ml Eau de Parfum. A limited and rare fragrance (there are only 2,000 flacons available), and it’s the most expensive of the Louis Vuitton line-up (each flacon comes in at €1,200). It’s available exclusive to the Middle East countries at Louis Vuitton boutiques. Come into the beautiful world of Louis Vuitton.

Bvlgari Allegra, the new personalized fragrance experience from Bvlgari

Bvlgari creates an Italian sensorial experience with its new Bvlgari Allegra fragrance collection. Bvlgari Allegra offers myriad combinations to create a uniquely personal scent. From the composition to the flacons inspired by colored gems, this fragrance collection is both joyful and precious.

The days of wearing a single signature fragrance are long over. Now it’s all about having a fragrance wardrobe and Bulgari just made that a lot easier with their new Allegra perfume collection. Designed around the concept of customization, the women’s collection includes five perfumes and five magnifying essences, which add a unique twist to the perfume while making it a bespoke scent.

The magnifying essences are single ingredients. You can wear the parfum by itself without the magnifying essence, or only wear the magnifying essence. They are designed and tested to all be compatible. There is an infinite possibility of combinations. This was really the driving force, to bring true innovation and customization.

Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO Bvlgari

Perfumer Jacques Cavallier, who has worked with the house for seven years, was tapped to create the Allegra collection of fragrances. “All roads lead to Rome, all magnificent ingredients lead to Rome, and all fragrances lead to Rome”, says Jacques Cavallier about his creations for Bvlgari. Inspired by the history and lifestyle of Italy, the master perfumer put his passion and art into crafting the five Bvlgari Allegra Eau de Parfums and five Magnifying essences. The multiple combinations are the fruit of superb creativity.

For the fragrances, the citrus notes of Riva Solare evoke an endless Italian Riviera holiday, while the roses of Fiori d’Amore  are like kisses in the eternal city. The gourmand amaretti and orange blossom in Dolce Estasi are inspired by the attachment to family and childhood memories. The cocktail of fruity notes in Rock’n’Rome echoes a spritz aperitivo shared at sunset. And the chypre accord of Fantasia Veneta with patchouli, peach and vanilla is an invitation to extravagant Venice masked balls. Get to know the Bvlgari Allegra collection:

The energizing Magnifying Bergamot elevates freshness. The voluptuous Magnifying Rose maximizes florality. The daring Magnifying Patchouli adds an alluring woody facet. The delightful Magnifying Vanilla brings a seductive addiction. The caressing Magnifying Musk elevates the soul.

The beautiful flacons of the Allegria Collection aren’t just impressive for their appearance. Since they’re made from glass (except for the pump), they’re completely recyclable, as well as the outer cardboard packaging. “The footprint of Allegra is extremely low”, Jean-Christophe Babin says. Sustainability is now at the forefront of Bvlgari, as they are moving to completely plastic-free packaging for their watches and jewelry, which will save more than 150 tons of plastic per year.

“Jewelry by definition is sustainable”, Babin says. “More than 95 percent of our jewelry is made from recycled gold. We don’t participate any longer in gold extraction from the planet”. All plastic is also being eliminated from Bulgari hotels. Another conscious effort is that the Allegra collection is crafted with natural ingredients whenever possible.

The Bvlgari Allegra Collection is avalable at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Bvlgari.

Louis Vuitton Étoile Filante is the latest addition to the Maison’s travel-inspired fragrances

French Maison Louis Vuitton’s spirit of adventure shines through in all their creations, perfumes  included. The fashion house has just released Étoile Filante as the latest addition to its travel-inspired fragrances. The fragrance iÉtoile Filante, meaning ‘shooting star,’ is being promoted as precious nectar celebrating joy and hope.

Étoile Filante does so thanks to Vuitton’s in-house perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud and his chosen material ‘Osmanthus absolute’ that he adored since childhood. The perfumer was also inspired by the scents and ingredients discovered throughout his travels and finally made the secluded Vuttion fragrance house in Grasse.

Louis Vuitton has managed an immersive and beautiful floral fruity fragrance for women by bringing together elements like osmanthus, a touch of jasmine, with light notes of sun-ripened strawberry.

Osmanthus absolute was my first revelation among raw materials when, at 11, I discovered it in my father’s laboratory in Grasse. Its marvelous scent, as well as a name that evokes distant horizons, immediately fascinated me.

Jacques Cavallier Belletrud

The natural fruity accents of apricot and cassis that osmanthus possesses give this fragrance a unique delicacy that evokes the soft skin of a peach. A dose of jasmine from Grasse, obtained through CO2 extraction, and magnolia from China emphasize the floral character of the composition, while the velvety aspect is enhanced by light notes of sun-drenched strawberries.

This new fragrance Étoile Filante released in early 2021 comes housed in the signature flacon of fragrances of the Maison. Louis Vuitton Étoile Filante is available as a 100 and a 200 ml Eau de Parfum, as well as a special travel package of 4 x 7.5 ml.

Louis Vuitton Étoile Filante is available at Louis Vuitton boutiques worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton Launches Ultra-Luxe Perfume Customization Service

French Maison Louis Vuitton perpetuates the Art of Personalization and launches its bespoke Haute Perfumery service with Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. A unique creation, conceived and made in Grasse.

It all started in Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s creative atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, the cradle of perfumery and leatherworking trades. Since 2012, this is where the Master Perfumer has conceived his most beautiful olfactive propositions for the Maison. Now, he is opening his workshop to bespoke perfumery, for unique and personalized creations made upon request, in the tradition of the special orders that have been rooted deeply in the Louis Vuitton DNA since 1854.

I wanted to offer our clients the possibility of wearing a unique fragrance, made in my creative workshop. To me, this bespoke Haute Perfumery service represents the essence of the Maison, because ultra-personalization has always been at the heart of Louis Vuitton.

Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, Louis Vuitton master perfumer

The objective of this unique and privileged moment is to create the client’s olfactory portrait. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud inquires as to tastes, memories, and lifestyle as well as typical perfume habits. In the process, a genuine, intimate collaboration takes shape between client and Master Perfumer. After this exceptional and emotionally rich consultation, the Master Perfumer begins composing a scent and develops several formulas in his atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse. 

To do so, he selects from among the most exclusive raw materials he has sourced in the four corners of the globe, in order to create the fragrance trail that best corresponds to its client’s personality. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud can then calibrate each olfactory nuance down to the tiniest details to offer a resolutely made-to- measure composition.

An exceptional showcase:

It takes several months to finalize a fragrance formula. The perfume is then composed by hand at the Atelier d’Art, a new space dedicated to bespoke perfumes in the heart of Les Fontaines Parfumées. In the meantime, the trunk in which the perfume will be presented is specially crafted in Asnières, Louis Vuitton’s historic workshop and the cradle for all of its special orders. This unique and personalizable trunk holds four 100ml flacons, three 200ml flaconss, a 100ml travel case, a travel spray, plus 16 refills.

A sustainable service:

As with all of the Maison’s perfumes, made-to-measure Haute Perfumery benefits from a refill service upon request, which is available in all Louis Vuitton stores carrying perfume fountains. Each unique formula will be forever inscribed in the Louis Vuitton archives at Les Fontaines Parfumées so that the client’s olfactory signature may be perpetuated.

Special orders: Historic savoir-faire:

Since its founding, the French Maison has accompanied clients in their quest for rare and exceptional products and perpetuated the Art of Personalization, a tradition inscribed in the trunk-maker’s DNA since 1854. In 1859, the House opened its workshop in Asnières, just outside Paris. To this day, trunks and special orders are crafted there by highly qualified artisans for travellers the world over. The emblematic Desk-Trunk for the renowned conductor Leopold Stokowski and the Tea Service Trunk for the Maharaja of Baroda were made here. More recently, the Maison’s historic workshop crafted cases for transporting the world’s most prestigious sports trophies, including those for the FIFA, the French Open, and the NBA, as well as Sneaker and Vanity Trunks – contemporary versions of the cosmetic cases of the 1920s.

Louis Vuitton’s Haute Perfumery customized perfume service begins at €60,000 EUR (approximately $72,690 USD). Come into the beautiful world of Louis Vuitton.

A floral and dreamy escape from reality: Louis Vuitton Heures d’Absence

Louis-Vuitton-Heures-d'Absence-Visual-01

While French Maison Louis Vuitton is primarily known for its bags and leather goods, the marquee has made a quite a splash in the world of fragrance. The brand’s much touted for Les Parfums Louis Vuitton collection is a testament to its mastery in making perfumes which is further sealed with the release of a unique new scent: Heures d’Absence.

The Les Parfums Louis Vuitton collection has been supplemented with a floral creation, a sophisticated and feminine ode to the French Maison’s perfume collection, whose composition develops flower by flower.

The new creation was inspired by the first Louis Vuitton fragrance Heures d’Absence launched in 1927, which was aimed at both men and women. Named after Georges Vuitton’s villa, the fragrance was presented to mark the opening of the new London store, and was available in only 300 copies.

Louis-Vuitton-Heures-d'Absence-Visual-02

The small airplane on the body of the rectangular glass flacon was the embodiment of the love for travel and exploration of the world, and for the 2020 creation, perfumer  Jacques Cavallier Belletrud relied on several components from the first fragrance to re-materialize it and include it into the collection once again.

Louis Vuitton Heures d’Absence brings freshness and whiteness to jasmine sambac. Its sharpness blends gently with the freshly cut May roses that give off a romantic vibe. The scent of jasmine in the composition is enhanced as the most prominent flower thanks to CO2 extraction technology, while mixing it with the aromatic pittosporum flower brings harmony and joy to the flowery collage.

The powdery and bright mimosa chord has a fine honey like and fluffy effect, giving the watercolor rose flowers a dose of sunshine, along with the delicacy of raspberries that make the flower bouquet more complex and sophisticatedly sweet. The subtle, silky warmth of vanilla gently envelops the flowers, combined with a creamy base of sandalwood and musk supporting the beauty of each flower and emphasizing the sophistication of the creation.

Louis-Vuitton-Heures-d'Absence-Box-FlaconLouis Vuitton Heures d’Absence is available as a 100ml and 200ml Eau de Parfum, a travel flacon with 4 refills of 7.5ml Eau de Parfum, and a refill pack for the travel flacon (4×7.5ml Eau de Parfum.) at Louis Vuiton Boutiques and selected stores worldwide.

Not only for Pasha’s Cartier Pasha Parfum

Thami-El-Glaoui-Pasha-of-Marrakesh-71Ia3-iQqaL._AC_SL1500_

As one of the world’s leading luxury watch brands, Cartier boasts an impressive assortment of iconic designs. There’s the Santos watch, made originally for Brazilian pioneer aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, the Tank watch, fashioned after the military armored vehicle and the Panthere watch with an instantly recognizable link bracelet, just to name a few. Another famous Cartier watch is the Pasha, created for the Pasha of Marrakesh.

In the early 20th century, parts of Morocco was a protectorate of France. During this time, Thami El Glaoui, the Pasha of Marrakesh (above) aligned himself with the French. As a result, he amassed great wealth (mostly from questionable practices) during his time in power, and by some accounts, he was one of the richest men in the world. His personal style and charm, as well as his prodigality with his wealth, made him many friends among the international fashionable set of the day. He visited the European capitals often. He counted people like Charlie Chaplin, Colette and Winston Churchill as friends and hosted them in his Marrakesh – a city he invested in extravagantly to beautify with palaces, golf courses, hotels, and lavish gardens. He treated his European guests to lavish banquets and offered them expensive gifts.

In the early ’30s, the Pasha of Marrakesh commissioned a watch from the French Maison. Aside for a penchant for the finer things in life, the Pasha was also an active man. So he requested that his Cartier watch be elegant, yet capable of being submerged during his regular swims and daily bathing, without having to worry about its functionality or precision. It is considered to be the first waterproof timepiece from Cartier. Water resistant watches were still a new concept during this era (remember the Rolex Oyster only made its debut in 1926).

Cartier-Pasha-18k-1985-02Cartier Pasha 18k yellow gold, 1985 (private collection).

However, Louis Cartier did build the Pasha a solid gold water-resistant round watch. The custom Cartier was fitted with screw-down caseback, a chain-secured cap protecting the winding crown, and a protective grid on top of the face. In 1943, the timepiece was introduced into the official Cartier collection. In 1985, the legendary watch designer Gérald Genta designed a version of the Cartier Pasha whose form is still celebrated to this day. Throughout the years, a number of models under the name Pasha de Cartier have been presented, and, as a result, an overwhelming selection of new and used Pasha timepieces can be discovered today.

While the fate of Thami El Glaoui’s Cartier watch is unknown, according to a 2003 Robb Report article, Stanislas de Quercize, the President and CEO of Cartier North America at that time, confirmed that Cartier is actively looking for the watch to add to its corporate collection.

Later the French Maison created the Pasha Collection. A collection of cufflinks, luxury writing instruments, lighters and perfumes. Like their jewels and watches, They all are a signature of unique taste in fine accessories. A signature of pure elegance.

Cartier-Pasha-Parfum-Flacon

Also named after the iconic watch, the French Maison introduced in 1992 Pasha de Cartier, a beautiful, classic fougere fragrance for men. Created by Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, the now legenday fragrance had top notes of lavender, mandarin, mint, caraway and anise. The middle notes are coriander, and Brazilian rosewood. And base notes of labdanum, sandelwood, patchouli and oakmoss. A timeless classic. In its collection Cartier also offers several versions of the first perfume. In addition to Edition Noire (a modern fougere with green and citrus notes, amber, and cedar) and Edition Noire Sport (an energetic fougere with citrus, marine accords, and cedar), the new, contemporary and intense version, Pasha de Cartier Parfum , is available from February 2020.

Pasha de Cartier Parfum is designed for contemporary and elegant men – to those who want to be noticed. It is adorned with epithets such as being bold, sophisticated, and powerful. The fragrance is a modern version of the original in a parfum concentration that provides additional depth, intensity, and lasting permanence.

Created by the Maison’s in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent, the contemporary fougere composition with woody and ambery features includes notes of patchouli, sandalwood, fir balsam, labdanum, benzoin, ambrocenide molecule, and tonka bean. Mathilde tried to preserve the characteristic aromatic base of the original Pasha fragrance in this creation, but make it new with woody and amber notes using the best ingredients from around the world.

Cartier-Pasha-Parfum-Flacon-Detail-01

When creating a new version of the iconic perfume, special attention was paid to the design of the flacon. Named and inspired by the iconic Pasha watch, the design of the flacon was really inspired on Pasha cufflinks and luxury writing instruments, with a blue sapphire cabochon, a unique Cartier symbol. It also features other iconic Cartier hallmarks including the Trinity ring, gadroons, and the famous red box.

When you focus on designs with diamonds and other precious gems, and have princesses and actresses commissioning special works with serpents, tigers, and other exotic animals – you know you’re dealing with one of the world’s most luxurious brands!

Cartier watches are available at Cartier Boutiques and selected stores worldwide. Pasha de Cartier Parfum is available in quantities of 50 and 100ml at Cartier Boutiques and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Cartier.

 

 

 

 

A portrait, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud

 

Jacques-Cavallier-Belletrud

Renowned perfumers often leave their mark with a single famous creation that changes the industry, but a few do so with not one – or two – but many different perfumes. Perfumer Jacques Cavallier is just such a figure, having changed our scented world with such industry changers as Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classique, Issey Miyake’s L’Eau d’Issey, Lancôme’s Poême and Nina Ricci’s Nina. He has created perfumes for Maison’s as famous as Christian Dior, Givenchy, Rochas, designers like Giorgio Armani and Stella McCartney, and niches like Caudalie and Eau d’Italie.

Although Jacques Cavallier has one of the most extensive backgrounds in natural scent materials, it was inventive use of Calone-1951, the component sometimes referred to as ‘watermelon ketone’ that brought him the most attention for his early creations. He brought a freshness and light to perfumes like L’Eau d’Issey that re-imagined what a fragrance could be.

Jacques-Cavallier-Belletrud-Test-Flacon

As a schoolboy in Grasse, Jacques Cavalier Belletrud would walk by an imposing portal. He had no idea what sat behind the wrought iron gates that so intrigued him. Little could he have imagined that, in 2016, this very place would become his creative workshop.

From my earliest childhood I heard all about perfume. Creating scents is like breathing for me – it’s just the obvious thing to do.

Jacques Cavallier Belletrud

Jacques Cavallier was fittingly born in 1962 in Grasse, France, the third in a series of perfuming men. Like his father and grandfather before him, he dedicated himself to the study there in his home turf.

Jacques-Cavallier-Belletrud-Test-01

At the age of eight, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud went to his father, and told him he wanted to follow in his footsteps. He learned perfume notes the way other children practiced piano scales. When he got good grades in school, his father allowed him to weigh out formulas. The day after receiving his high school diploma, he began working in a perfume factory in Grasse, where he learned to distill flowers.

He studied French and Spanish at the University of Nice, and at 18, he created his first formula – but his father reminded him that becoming a perfumer takes much more than mixing a few scents together. It would take a lot of hard work to be hired at the famous perfume and flavor company Firmenich that he met Alberto Morillas, with whom he collaborated on many perfumes, and where he would spend the next 22 years.

Jacques-Cavallier-Belletrud-Test-Lab

Jacques is a perfumer of great variation and considerable range. His work is intensely wearable, and it may be due alone to this singular quality that he was awarded the Prix François Coty at the Prix International du Parfum in 2004.

For a long time Jacques Cavallier Belletrud worked for Firmenich, a company that produces perfumes for other brands, he moved on to the LVMH group (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessey SE) in 2012, where he works together with François Demachy as in-house master perfumer, and becoming the exclusive perfumer for Louis Vuitton. Named Maître Parfumeur of Louis Vuitton, he traveled the world for four years to perfect the first collection of Louis Vuitton perfumes. The French Maison hadn’t released any scents since the mid-twentieth century, marking new territory in creative exploration for them.

Louis Vuitton Rose des Vents

louis-vuitton-rose-des-vents-fragrances--LP0005_PM1_Other20view2_wdp

A whisper of petals opens up new horizons. A navigator’s indispensable tool, the rose des vents – or compass – is the traveler’s faithful companion. An olfactory guide, Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud transports us to the middle of a field of roses in Grasse.

Buffeted by the wind, this singular flower seems to breathe. Sleek and stately thanks to iris and cedar, this perfume takes on glazed accents as it comes into contact with pepper. Gradually, the composition becomes as delicate as the skin of a velvety fruit. As golden as the first light of day.

Louis Vuitton Launches Nature-Inspired Candle Collection

 

louis-vuitton-candles-02

Maison Louis Vuitton has announced that its in-house perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, the man behind its fragrances, has created a new range of four candles to expand upon the brand’s olfactory offering.

The ceramic pots that house the candles have been designed by Marc Newson, who crafted the bottles of Les Parfum Louis Vuitton. Each candle has a handle made of natural leather, which is attached via metal studs, with a gold-finish metal lid doubling as a coaster.

The scents, as described by the French Maison, were imagined ‘like a house with windows open to the world’ capturing the essence of a breeze travelling from the outdoors, in. The four fragrances have been composed like snapshots of moments suspended in time, which can be relived when the candle is lighted anew.

Louis Vuitton L’Air du Jardin

L’Air du Jardin invokes the spirit of rosebuds. It bottles the scent of the rose centifolia that blossoms in Grasse each spring.

Louis Vuitton Île Blance

Île Blance, an imaginary island where the air is fresh with ocean spray, the sun and white cotton, embodied in the scent through the use of orange, jasmine sambac from China as well as neroli and cardamom

Louis Vuitton Feuilles d’Or

Feuilles d’Or which gives the impression of walking through the woods with notes of Indonesian patchouli and Virginia cedar combining to transport your senses.

Louis Vuitton Dehors Il Neige

Dehors Il Neige inspired by the smell of a fireplace crackling inside whilst it snows outside made using star anise and cinnamon (to recall holiday memories in December) and finished with raspberry.

louis-vuitton-scented-candles-01

Designed by Marc Newson, the candles are cast in handmade white ceramic pots that will look good literally anywhere you decide to put them, both whilst the candle is burning and when it is finished. The containers also have a natural leather hand-sewn handle, a gold lid and are finished with a fun detail: colourful wicks which were hand-painted in Grasse.

The candles will retail at €175 (approximately $203) and are available to buy from November 5 online and in selected stores. Watch out! You might never want to leave your house!
