Since ar­riv­ing at Louis Vuit­ton in 2012, master per­fumer Jac­ques Caval­lier Bel­letrud has fo­cused on con­trasts within his fra­grances, com­bin­ing notes that wouldn’t nor­mally min­gle. For his lat­est cre­ation, At­trape-Rêves ($265), for which he wanted to “put dreams and very pos­i­tive vibes in a bot­tle,” he set his sights on co­coa. “It re­minds me of my child­hood, when I used to open a box of choco­late pow­der, but it is sen­sual at the same time,” he says. To con­trast with the soft­ness of the co­coa, he tweaked the acid­ity of the ly­chee and added a hint of gin­ger to play with the patchouli. Lastly, he added berg­amot oil to bring fresh­ness and also make the ly­chee lighter. “The di­a­logue be­tween these dif­fer­ent smells is like a fire­work when you open the bot­tle,” he says.
