The California-themed fragrances from Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Los Angeles artist Alex Israel have always offered olfactory descriptions of the West Coast in ombré bottles that are an extension of the scent it holds.
City Of Stars, the latest by the maison’s master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, is all about celebrating Los Angeles’ magical allure, from dusk to dawn. The festive ode embodies the excitement and extravagance from star-studded boulevards to the constellations shimmering above the skyline.
Bottling a feeling of freedom, the evening cologne is one that is more extroverted than its predecessors. Focused on the sparkling atmosphere of a night in Los Angeles, the fruity-floral scent opens with a dazzling citrus quintet, proffering notes of blood orange, lemon, red mandarin, bergamot and lime.
This leads to a soothing veil of voluptuous tiare flower and gentle monoi to create a paradox between shadow and light. The dry down? A sophisticated sandalwood that caresses the skin with a powdery musk for a magnetic combination that exudes sensuality while bringing on the night.
Priced at SGD430 for 100 ml and SGD640 for 200 ml, the City Of Stars EDP is now available at Louis Vuitton boutiques and online, with complimentary shipping right to your door.
