Luxury fragrances are a dime a dozen. New scents drop nearly every month, promising for wearers to smell more alluring, more seductive, and more desirable with each new spritz. Louis Vuitton is a label that has kept an arm’s length away from the fuss for almost 90 years, until today.
The latest Louis Vuitton perfume line, Les Parfums, appears a visual exercise in minimalism that is a far cry from the typically elaborate bottles of designer perfumes. Marc Newson designed round apothecary bottles with simple stopper caps housing a spray nozzle, and neat black font adorning the bottle. There is a certain prestige affected by the simplicity of the bottle — it doesn’t proclaim its brand status, and yet is distinctly Louis.
Crafted with the notion of a fragrance wardrobe in mind, the range comprises seven fragrances made with carefully sourced floral ingredients that reflect the brand’s ethos of globetrotting luxury. Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, the master perfumer for Louis Vuitton, explains that the primary inspiration behind each scent was how they would play out on a woman’s skin. Clients can either choose to purchase the entire line and don a different signature scent for any occasion, or pick one Louis Vuitton perfume that epitomises their favourite fragrance notes and personality.
