Louis Vuitton’s master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud and legendary architect Frank Gehry have come together to create a new fragrance series for the French luxury house dubbed the Les Extraits collection, which are literal works of art.

01 – The inspiration for the collection? It’s none other than Louis Vuitton’s inherent spirit of travel. The line-up of five precious fragrances compose an imaginary odyssey, each offering a different olfactory escape, for moments of delight.

02 – Breaking away from the traditional fragrance composition structure, these modernised perfumes have no top, heart or base notes. Instead, they each represent a different major olfactive family, such as floral, chypre and amber, for a classic and timeless scent that remains pleasantly surprising. Expect fresh scents that linger without being heady and sensuality that is not heavy.

03 – Look forward to Dancing Blossom, a cascade of flowers with a blend of May rose, sambac jasmine, tuberose and osmanthus. Cosmic Cloud is a whirlwind of powdery, fruity musks, laced with ambrette absolute and tonka bean, while Rhapsody is a sophisticated chypre with ylang ylang, mate and vetiver.

You’ll also find Symphony, a musky, fruity and velvety cocktail of fresh ginger zest, bergamot and grapefruit, and lastly, Stellar Times, an oriental infusion of white amber, orange blossom and peru balm.

04 – Can’t take your eyes off the bottle? The sculptural odyssey, Gehry’s first fragrance project, incorporates the art of movement with his signature curve design. The refillable stunner expresses the architect’s passion for sailing with a curved bottle reminiscent of a sail skimming through the wind and is topped with a three-dimensional, hand-polished metallic cap resembling a sheet of aluminium crumpled like fabric, completed with a stamped LV seal within.

05 – Priced at SGD820 for 100 ml, the Les Extraits collection is now available at Louis Vuitton boutiques in Singapore, as well as online via their e-commerce site with complimentary shipping right to your door.
