6 Things We Would Like Louis Vuitton’s First Fragrance To Smell Like
We’re not fragrance experts like
Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, the guy Louis Vuitton hired to create its very first mass-produced fragrance, but we do like things that smell nice. And because we have that very distinct skill, we would like to give Mr. Cavallier-Belletrud a few pointers on what we as consumers would like the new scent to smell like whenever it reaches Vuitton’s 461 boutiques worldwide.
No, there's no one thing that wealth smells like (though we're pretty sure it
looks like Carmen Dell'Orefice), but this is Louis Vuitton so we're certainly not going to abide any of those saccharine sweet scents that you can pick up for a song in a plastic bottle at the mall. No, no -- if we're going to shell out for a Vuitton fragrance, it's going to have to smell like nothing we've ever smelled before. By which we mean exclusive. (By which we mean expensive.)
Quite frankly there's nothing better than being greeted by the smell of clean towels, sheets, blankets and duvet covers every time you open your linen closet. Who wouldn't pay to carry that scent around with them all day?
3.Freshly Showered Dude
You know that smell when guys get out of the shower? That soapy, fresh smell of clean skin and like, manhood? We love it and you know you do, too. If we could bottle that smell, we would probably make a fortune. Ball's in your court, Vuitton.
4.Grass in Springtime
Who doesn't love the sweet, sweet smell of a freshly mowed and slightly dewy lawn? WHO, WE ASK.
5.A Garden on a Hot Summer Night
If Vuitton goes floral (and we all know that's probably what's going to happen) we hope they bring us a summer garden on a really hot night. That's when our favorite flowers (roses, lilies of all stripes, gardenias, lilac and iris, just to name a few) come to life and smell their best. (And yes, botany majors, we realize these are Campanula. Shut up already.)
6.The Original Louis Vuitton Fragrance
Then again, maybe not. If the original formula didn't work in the 20s and 30s, it probably wouldn't work today.
