RETRACING A LEGACY
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.
