Presented in a luxurious package, Louis Vuitton: A Perfume Atlas offers a rare look at the time-honoured crafts of the perfumer, with specially commissioned illustrations and texts revealing the stories of the precious natural elements that create the house's unique perfumes. With exclusive, first-hand access to Louis Vuitton's master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, A Perfume Atlas explores how the flowers are cultivated, the growing seasons and techniques used to harvest the blossoms, and how essential oils are extracted, distilled and composed to create new and complex fragrances. From Chinese magnolia and osmanthus to India's tuberose and jasmine, each seed pod, berry, woody stem, fruit, leaf and flower opens a world that evokes the thrill of far-off places and names, trade routes, sea journeys and the rhythms of the seasons. A poetic celebration of a most mysterious art, Louis Vuitton: A Perfume Atlas is the perfect gift for lovers of nature, luxury, travel and beauty.
