Les Parfums Louis Vuitton Pop-Up 1

The iconic Damier pattern which will adorn the counters, showcases a classical yet very modern interpretation of Louis Vuitton’ signatures. For certain locations such as in Printemps Haussmann, Dubai Mall and Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, a special wave structure made with the packaging of the collection has been developed to introduce 7 fragrances.

A “Consultation Trunk” crafted in Louis Vuitton’s historical workshop will also be displayed at the Dubai Mall and Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, inviting visitors to discover the raw materials used by Jacques Cavallier Belletrud Louis Vuitton Master Perfumer to create the fragrances.

Such as the new leather infusion and CO2 extracts of rose and jasmine from Grasse, exclusive notes to Louis Vuitton. Fragrances are deeply rooted in the House’s heritage. Louis Vuitton returns to its roots 70 years after its last olfactory signatures, such as “Je, tu, il“ and “Heures d’Absence“, created in the late 20s. The fragrance savoir-faire has been revived with the help of Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud to reinvent a true craft and cultivate it over a long period of time.

Harrods pop-up store will be located at its Perfumery Hall while a whole wall will be dedicated to the fragrances at Shinsegae Gangnam.

Les Parfums Louis Vuitton: Dans La Peau

Does absence embolden desire? Travelling also has that power: to spark amorous embraces. From these torrid evocations, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud has dreamt up an encounter as indelible as an imprint.
An exclusive infusion of natural leather from Louis Vuitton’s workshops makes you want to surrender to a passionate embrace.

HD CADREES.indd

Intertwined with this exquisite leather are accents of almost – candied apricot, a CO2 extraction of jasmine from Grasse— exclusive to the Maison Louis Vuitton – and sambac jasmine from China.

Then appears the absolute of narcissus, a singular flower that evokes both tobacco and the green of freshly-cut stems. The scent is boldly erotic.

A choir of the most sensual musks envelops the skin. Powdery musk. Clean musk. Animal musk. Floral musk. A breathtaking symphony calmed by touches of Chinese magnolia.

Dans la Peau does not feign desire. It lays it bare.

A timeglass in a bottle

At a time when some still believe that luxury is a function of the weight of glass, the Maison Louis Vuitton frees the perfume bottle from the constraints of the past. Shouldn’t real luxury mean elevating the most everyday gestures?

dans-la-peau

Created by designer Marc Newson, a master of simplicity, the Louis Vuitton perfume bottle embodies absolute purity. Clean lines are devoid of any embellishment. A drop of water, suspended. Black lettering on transparent glass. Even the brand name engraved in the glass remains discreet, revealing itself in relief to the fingertips or through a ray of light.

At the top of this ethereal bottle, a transparent black cap recalls pieces by Emery from the last century. Yet when the cap stamped with the LV initials encircled in brass is removed, an atomizer appears. By seeming to reconnect with an old gesture, the Louis Vuitton brand projects its bottle into the future.

Les Parfums Louis Vuitton: Olfactory Preludes

In 2016, the Maison Louis Vuitton is preparing to explore new territory: perfume.

While unprecedented and firmly anchored in the House’s history, this olfactory path is not unchartered territory. Quite the contrary: it is informed by the trunk-maker’s legendary fondness for the vanity cases, travel asks and fragrances stamped Louis Vuitton that were created throughout the 20th century.

By way of an olfactory prelude, the Maison Louis Vuitton unveils its creative atelier in the heart of Grasse, in the Provence region of France; the unique background of House Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, and the palette of exclusive raw materials he has assembled since his arrival.

It is an invitation to travel, a prologue to an imminent departure.

Jacques Cavallier Belletrud

The life and travels of a Grasse native – As a schoolboy in Grasse, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud would walk by the imposing portal of an estate called Les Fontaines Parfumées every day. He had no idea what was hidden behind the wrought iron gates that so intrigued him. Little could he have imagined that, in 2016, this very place would become his creative atelier. At that time, fragrance still fanned through every street and alleyway in Grasse. One only had to breathe in to know what the perfume factories were distilling that day. Orange blossom, citronella, lavender, Jacques already knew those ingredients, by heart. At the age of eight, with absolute conviction, he went to his father, a perfumer, and told him he wanted to follow in his footsteps. He learned perfume notes the way other children practiced piano scales. Every evening, his father gave him perfume blotters, dipped in essence and he would have to wait until daybreak to write a detailed description in the notebooks he kept with care.

HD CADREES 194x254.indd

When he received good grades in school, his father would allow him to help weigh out formulas in the summer. The day after receiving his high school diploma, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud began working at the perfume company Charabot, where he learned how to distill flowers, discovered the perfume business and got a taste of freedom. At 18, he created his first formula ‒ but his father reminded him that it takes more than mixing a few scents together to become a perfumer. It would take a lot more hard work and humility to be hired at Firmenich, where he would spend twenty-two years. The creator of Jean Paul Gaultier Classique, L’Eau d’Issey and Opium pour Homme by Yves Saint Laurent, among others, he was named Maître Parfumeur of Louis Vuitton in 2012.

Les Parfums Louis Vuitton: Apogée

Some getaways let us reconnect with ourselves. We come up against the immensity of nature, the raw green of a dense forest, the silence of a still lake, the vertigo of a high mountain peak. And in this communion with the planet, normality gives way to what is essential: at every moment, being sensitive to beauty is all it takes to be reborn. Eternally.

HD CADREES.indd

To illustrate this unique sensation, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud chose a symbol of renewal: the lily-of-the-valley. Obsessed with this poetic scent that is revered in the West as well as in Japan, Louis Vuitton’s Master Perfumer has imagined, with Apogée, an elixir of innocence.

HD CADREES.indd

A perfume that awakens the senses. To harmonise with the radiant lily-of-the-valley, he added Grasse jasmine, Chinese magnolia and an unprecedented quantity of May rose from Grasse in a CO2 extraction—a raw material exclusive to the Maison Louis Vuitton. A lace of petals seems to materialise on the skin. Then, behind the transparency and aqueous imprint of the still-green lily-of-the-valley lies a vibrant base that prolongs the floral effects. Subtly smoky guaiac wood and sandalwood essence support the bouquet like slender stems.

Nature is renewed, again and forever.

Les Parfums Louis Vuitton Ad Campaign Starring Léa Seydoux

For its debut perfume campaign, Louis Vuitton unveils, in a series of photographs by Patrick Demarchelier, the 7 fragrances created by Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud: Rose des VentsTurbulencesDans la PeauApogée, Contre Moi, Matière Noire and Mille Feux.

From the breezy Rose des Vents to the intoxicating Turbulences, the ecstasy of a first night with Dans la Peau to the mindful immersion in nature with Apogée; from the self-revealing Contre Moi to an exploration of a darker side with Matière Noire and the explosion of the senses with Mille Feux, Louis Vuitton perfumes describe a journey of emotions. A collection of emotions embodied in an advertising campaign by Léa Seydoux.

In order to capture such radiant, contemporary femininity and render it sublime, the Maison Louis Vuitton travelled to South Africa, at Lone Creek Falls – Sabie Town and collaborated with photographer Patrick Demarchelier. Through his portraits, the lensman reveals the actress in an expression of great purity. At a glance, one can almost feel the softness of her skin and the dampness of her hair. Her beauty, as radiant as her emotional power, is of astounding simplicity.

“Louis Vuitton is about travel, but it’s also about dreams. Its spirit blends adventure, discovery, and emotion. I am very honored to embody this universe.” – Léa Seydoux

Léa Seydoux won the Golden Palm at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival for her role in “Blue is the Warmest Color”. At 31, the young actress now enjoys international acclaim. In 2015, she played the new James Bond girl to Daniel Craig’s Bond in “Spectre”, directed by Sam Mendes. This year, she will appear in the latest film by director Xavier Dolan, “It’s Only the End of the World”.

The first advertising campaign for Louis Vuitton perfumes as embodied by Léa Seydoux will break in the October issue of magazines and on the 15th of September in daily newspapers worldwide.

How To Dress To Impress

There are many aspects that go into applying for a job. When you get to the interview stage, you should consider this an accomplishment. Chances are you received a call out of potentially hundreds of applications. You obviously have something the company is looking for, however now you have to seal the deal.In order to do this you have to consider every aspect of the interview process, from what you say to what you wear. Wearing the proper attire can oftentimes make or break your chances for obtaining a job. Use the following guide to dress appropriately and get the job you want.

Dress Appropriately

There is a general rule you can apply to dressing for an interview “if you would not wear it to work, you should not wear it to the interview.” Jeans are never appropriate, no matter what type of job you are applying for. The clothes that you wear make up a large portion of the first impression you create. Therefore you need to ensure that your modest dress is neat, sharp and appropriate for the job you are applying for. With the right supplier like Twirl Dress Boutique, you will be able to get the right dress that you need.

Forego the Smell Good

You may be tempted to pile on the aftershave or perfume for an interview. However, this is a bad idea. You may be in a small, confined space where this much “smell good” could be distracting and actually negatively impact your interview. It is a good idea to just skip the scents and stick to a clean smell, courtesy of your morning shower.

Remove or Cover up Tattoos and Piercings

Yes, you live in a modern society, however when it comes to piercings and tattoos you may need to consider removing them or covering them up when you go for an interview. Ear piercings are fine for women, however any other visible piercings should be removed. Additionally, tattoos should be covered up. Keep in mind, these considerations will not show up with the recruiting tools that employers have access to, however they can negatively impact your chance to receive a job offer.

This is mainly due to the fact that you will be representing the company. The hiring manager may not want the face of the company to be covered in piercings or visible tattoos. However, your company may also be okay with these if you have outstanding qualifications.

Modern employers use a variety of methods to determine the ability of a person to complete a certain job. Recruiting tools range from choosing resumes to ciphering out the unqualified candidates. However, traditional methods such as what you wear and what you say can impact your chances of a job offer, as well.

Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Collaboration: Mona Lisa by Da Vinci

Masters – A collaboration between Louis Vuitton and artist Jeff Koons, remixes the iconic artworks of the old masters and presents them in a way that encourages new interpretations.

Jeff Koons has brought imagery from his long-standing “Gazing Ball” paintings – a series of large-scale hand-painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products.

Having the names of the artists in reflective type is in a way performing a function like the gazing ball in the “Gazing Ball Paintings”… There’s also a reflective process about the person being interlinked with the bag.

The collection is is made up of artworks by old masters, namely Da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, Fragonard, and van Gogh.

Mona Lisa by Da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is the world’s most celebrated portrait, widely considered the greatest masterpiece of all time. The artist, however, never gave this work a title, date or signature. He is thought to have worked on it for years, carrying it wherever he travelled.

The subject of the painting remains a mystery: it might be a portrait of the Virgin Mary, or the pregnant wife of a wealthy merchant, or a composite. The shadowing, or ‘sfumato’, around the subject’s eyes and mouth give her an enigmatic, illusionistic and lifelike smile. The Mona Lisa, which displays no visible brushstrokes, can be seen in the Louvre in Paris.

‘It’s about the idea of Leonardo and it’s about Leonardo the human being.’ – Jeff Koons

Leonardo da Vinci is the embodiment of the Renaissance Man, often considered a primary example of the Universal Genius. As an accomplished master of literature, music, mathematics, architecture, and more, Da Vinci created musical instruments and designed early versions of the tank, helicopter, calculator, and solar generator — to name a few. But it is his art for which he is most celebrated.

Mars, Venus & Cupid by Titian

A virtuoso of the Italian High Renaissance, Titian was so revered he became known as the ‘sun amidst small stars’, a reference to Dante’s Paradiso. Among the artist’s most sensual masterpieces is Mars, Venus, and Cupid, an animated, erotically charged composition. The sense of energy and the emotional interaction between the subjects point to Titian’s evolution from a naturalistic approach to a more mannerist style marked by intellectual sophistication and compositional tension. This painting now hangs in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

The greatest painter of the 16th century Venetian School, Tiziano Vecellio — known as Titian— created about 600 known paintings. He dominated Venice’s art scene in its golden age; not only would he shape Renaissance art, but also generations of European artists to come.

After completing a portrait of Emperor Charles V in 1532, Titian was made a Count Palatine and a Knight of the Golden Spur. Titian became the official painter of The Republic Serenissime for 60 years and was as highly regarded as Raphael and Michelangelo.

He worked until his death in 1576.

The Tiger Hunt by Rubens

 

As European courts expanded their influence to far-flung horizons, artistic currents also took on powerful new directions. Rubens, whose most dramatic and celebrated paintings were works commissioned by these wealthy royals, portrayed wild, exotic animals that most people had never seen before. The tigers, lions, and leopards clashed with the power and intellect of man, especially people of African and Asian cultures, whom colonists encountered in their travels.

Tiger Hunt, a large, breathtaking painting, is one of four done for Duke Maximilian I of Bavaria to decorate his palace. The composition is inspired by The Battle of Anghiari, a lost painting by Leonardo da Vinci. The original hangs in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rennes, France.

‘We chose Rubens’s The Tiger Hunt, which is quite powerful and moving.’ – Jeff Koons

The Flemish Baroque master Sir Peter Paul Rubens was one of the most successful artists of his day. Early in his career, he toured Italy where he made copies of the Renaissance masters. After earning a reputation as a charismatic businessman and skilled diplomat, he traveled across Europe to work for several royal families. He even earned himself knighthoods from the kings of Spain and England.

Rubens’s career flourished thanks to an extravagant style that concentrated emotion, sensuality, and movement: his masterful depictions of voluptuousness live on in the term “Rubenesque”. Upon his death in 1640, Rubens was one of the most famous artists in Europe.

Girl with Dog by Fragonard

 

Fragonard’s paintings are known for combining charming lightness with innuendo and psychological insight. In Girl with Dog, the subject’s pose and the treatment of light could be lascivious were it not for the subject’s innocent expression. Erotic overtones aside, the work captures the love of luxury and voluptuousness enjoyed by the wealthy in pre-Revolutionary France. Sophisticated portrayals of unfettered sensuality and self-indulgence were groundbreaking for the time. Girl with Dog currently hangs in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, Germany, on permanent loan by the HypoVereinsbank, Member of Unicredit.

One of the pre-Revolutionary Ancien Régime’s most prolific artists, Jean-Honoré Fragonard is synonymous with the exuberantly hedonistic spirit of 18th-century France. After Louis XV bought a painting, Fragonard found favour with the French court, the aristocracy, and the emerging bourgeoisie. He was admired for his expressive portraits and genre paintings of intimate settings and erotic themes, some of which caused scandals. Despite having created over 550 paintings in his lifetime, the Revolution had swept away his wealthy customer base and he was almost forgotten when he died in 1806.
