Scent is such a powerful sense. It can transport you to another time and place or transform your mood subtly or instantly.
For this reason, I love fragrances. Or rather I have quite an obsession with perfumes and scented candles. However, they have to be quality fragrances, or your senses know the difference.
I splashed out on one of the new Louis Vuitton perfumes this week. Les parfarm.
The LV description is as ethereal as the scent it’s self;
“An incandescent fusion of raspberry and leather creates an ode to lightA golden ray, a starlit sky, the aurora borealis: light contributes to the magic of travel. To capture its incandescence, Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud sought a color to weave into this theme. On a visit to one of Louis Vuitton’s leather ateliers, he saw a craftsman transforming raspberry-colored leather into a luxurious handbag. The skin as bright as ripe fruit gave him an idea: to associate the scent of leather with that of the berry. He shaped the composition with osmanthus, a white flower with an animal and apricot scent, iris and saffron. Mille Feux is like an emotional bombshell. Fireworks.” (LV website)
