Louis Vuitton: A Perfume Atlas, English Version

S$ 250.00

Louis Vuitton: A Perfume Atlas offers a rare look at the time-honoured crafts of the perfumer, with specially commissioned illustrations, photographs and texts tracing the origins of the precious natural elements that form the basis of the House's unique fragrances.

With exclusive, first-hand access to Louis Vuitton’s master perfumer, Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, this book explores the sources of the raw materials, the techniques used to harvest them, and how essential oils are extracted, distilled and composed to create new and complex fragrances. From Chinese magnolia and osmanthus to India’s tuberose and jasmine, each seed pod, berry, woody stem, fruit, leaf and flower opens a world that evokes the thrill of far-off places and names, trade routes, sea journeys and the rhythms of the seasons.

At once a journey for the senses across multiple continents and a poetic celebration of a most mysterious art, Louis Vuitton: A Perfume Atlas is the perfect gift for lovers of nature, luxury, travel and beauty.
