RE­TRAC­ING A LEGACY

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

Be­fore mas­ter per­fumers pep­pered the em­blem­atic town of Grasse, this lit­tle pocket in the French Riviera was known for its leather-working trade. As if al­lud­ing to the re­la­tion­ship be­tween leather­craft and fra­grances, Louis Vuit­ton’s very first trunks in 1854 also fea­tured padded com­part­ments to house scents that emit­ted the gen­tlest wafts into the air. The Mas­ter Per­fumer be­hind Les Par­fums Louis Vuit­ton, Jacques Caval­lier Bel­letrud, con­cocted the in­fu­sions with this dream pal­ette in mind, be­gin­ning his jour­ney with the soft, sen­sual scent of the light­beige leather that cov­ers the han­dles and straps of Louis Vuit­ton trunks and hand­bags—a nat­u­ral in­fu­sion promi­nent in the Dans La Peau and the Mille Feux. Cloth­ing; and Blos­som Fine Jew­ellery (worn through­out), all from Louis Vuit­ton.
