The new fragrances are created by Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud who was also behind Louis Vuitton’s first collection of fragrances for men. The new scents are described using the following colourful language:
Cactus Garden – The enthusiasm of mate to exalt the emotions
The cool freshness of an exotic patio. A breath of leaves defies the heat wave like an enchanted frisson on the skin. Mate, that singular tea from faraway lands arrives in perfume that expresses the atmosphere of a tropical forest. It comes together with powerful and voluptuous Calabrian bergamot, while tangy, bright lemongrass illuminates this extraordinary garden.
Afternoon Swim – Passionate orange, to sail toward pleasure
A plunge into an ocean of sensations. Feeling all the energy of the waves washing over the skin on a hot summer’s day. Afternoon Swim pays homage to citrus. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud ennobles a rare Sicilian orange lush with juice, like an explosion of vitamins. A sensation of immense freshness imbues this perfume in which bergamot drifts toward a wave of delights, set against a deep current of mandarin.
Sun Song – An ode to the orange blossom to brighten summer
The euphoria of those first beautiful days. Feeling the warmth of sunlight on the skin. Sun Song captures the serenity of summer in a perfume seemingly made of light. Orange blossom is like a caress, a joyful expression with the vivacity of lemon, set to a score of enveloping musks to prolong the gentle refrain.
Like I said, colourful language. The new seasonal fragrances from Louis Vuitton are available now in 100ml for $350 or 200ml for $515.
