Inspired by the Middle East, Louis Vuitton launches a new addition to its Les Parfums Louis Vuitton line.
After creating Ombre Nomade, Les Sables Roses, Nuit de Feu and Pur Oud, perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud has now developed "Fleur du Desert" - a fragrance that follows Middle Eastern perfumery traditions. For this edition, Belletrud chose intoxicating flowers that are said to have been used in the perfumery of this region since ancient times.
The fifth opus in the oriental collection captures all the splendour of the desert. His warm and seductive ballad pays tribute to native flowers from the Middle East - jasmine, orange blossom and rose.
A honeyed hint of floral nectar combines with oud for a spicy, woody depth. This ingredient is prized for being one of the rarest and most expensive woods in existence.
Belletrud was inspired by the "absolute beauty" of an oasis of lush vegetation, which he encountered during a morning walk in the desert of Saudi Arabia, not far from Jeddah. The delicacy of the bouquet of fresh flowers is topped with spices and given depth by an amber and woody trace.
Full of contrasts, the fragrance is reminiscent of an oasis with lush vegetation in the middle of the desert and leaves behind a long-lasting and pleasant scent, something that lovers of oriental perfumes will appreciate.
Louis Vuitton Fleur du Desert is available as 100 and 200 ml Eau de Parfum.
