Louis Vuitton – Perfumes for the Home

Imprinted in the Maison Louis Vuitton’s heart since its beginnings, travel consistently informs the house’s olfactory creations.

It’s a state of mind that’s ever poised to venture out and conquer the world, with an insatiable curiosity, and a lightness of being, that embraces discovery — and it serves as a continuous inspiration for Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud. After creating a first collection of women’s fragrances in 2016, which was followed by a range of men’s fragrances in 2018, the perfumer has mastered a new journey: four scented candles that transforms the home into another ambiance.

As a source of inspiration, movement is the Maison’s common thread from their very first trunks, through to their ready-to-wear and fragrances. With this in mind, Marc Newson aspired to contribute to Louis Vuitton’s first scented candles. Cast in handmade ceramic, these containers have a unique form. Created with portable convenience in mind, these candles are made with a natural leather handle. The hand-sewn handle is secured to the ceramic with metal rivets.

To embark on an olfactory journey, one can remove the gold-finished metal lid and place it underneath the candle, as a base. Discovering the fragrant wax poured in Grasse, France, with a colorful detail: a wick coated in a subtle touch of vibrant pigment, also hand painted in Grasse.

Candles Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle

Malle Candles

For Frédéric Malle home scents are about atmospheres. A cluster of lily of the valley, a gentleman’s den, a dinner in Paris: so many different olfactory images have gone through his mind, and over time he has asked the best perfumers in the industry to transcribe them into fragrances. Each of these highly figurative scents can transform the atmosphere of a room. The fact that these perfumes evoke such precise images inspired Monsieur Malle to call illustrator Konstantin Kakanias and ask him to create his own interpretation of the image conjured by each perfume. For a limited time each illustration will be featured on the box of its corresponding candle, in a collection of images as eclectic as the collections of the iconic scents.

Bali Balance

Bali Balance

“Island of the Gods and Demons”, “land of 10,000 temples” – these are just two of the many names for Bali, the Indonesian island located in the Indian Ocean between Java and Lombok. I love the friendliness of the Balinese people and the beauty of the island and not only because I spent my honeymoon at the Four Seasons Bali at Sayan. The same resort and villa that Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber celebrated their honeymoon. The island has an aura that is quite overwhelming.
