Louis Vuitton introduces City of Stars
Louis Vuitton’s Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud created a unisex evening cologne inspired by a summer night in Los Angeles, featuring notes of citrus, sandalwood and tiare flower. Lauded contemporary artist and Los Angeles native Alex Israel collaborated on the packaging and accessories – a fragrance trunk and travel case – with an original artwork. A celebratory launch event was held at the Academy Museum in Los Angeles on April 6th.
Belletrud says of City of Stars, “It’s a more extroverted eau than its predecessors. It’s radically focused on the special, shimmering atmosphere of a night in Los Angeles when the singular setting sun gives way to the city’s lights and spotlights that traverse the sky. It’s a luminous night. The light comes from the explosion of a citrus quintet: blood orange, lemon, red mandarin, bergamot, and lime. It blends those different flashes, showcasing their spontaneity in a swirling melody that envelops and caresses the senses.”
