Wallpaper - - Newspaper - Scented candles, €175 each for 220g, by Louis Vuit­ton, louisvuit­

louis Vuit­ton is launch­ing its first se­ries of candles, cre­ated by in-house per­fumer jac­ques cav­al­lier bel­letrud, who also worked on the fash­ion house’s per­fume de­but in 2016. the four fra­grances, de­vel­oped to con­vey the feel­ing of a gen­tle breeze bring­ing the out­doors in, are in­spired by sea­sonal land­scapes dis­cov­ered by cav­al­lier bel­letrud dur­ing his trav­els: l’air du jardin dis­tills a provençal gar­den filled with May roses in spring, Île blanche is all sea spray and beating sun, Feuilles d’or is the wet, woody aro­mas of the for­est, and De­hors il neige is a snowy land­scape in­fused with fes­tive notes. Marc new­son’s con­tain­ers for the scented wax nod to voy­ag­ing. a leather han­dle over the hand­crafted ce­ramic ves­sels rep­re­sents the mai­son’s sig­na­ture ma­te­rial, while a thin, gold-fin­ished lid also dou­bles as a tray. the candles’ wicks are hand-painted in grasse with colour­ful pig­ments, adding a pleas­ingly play­ful touch.
