Louis Vuitton’s most recent fragrance encapsulates the essence of the Middle East. Inspired by the layering concept imbibed by the Middle East, master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud conceptualised the Les Sables Roses. Jacques names Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Oman as the key influencers in his discovery and motivation behind the Les Sables Roses.
Paying tribute to the spice trade which originated from the Middle East, the fragrance is brimming with leathery and spicy notes. The scent can be worn alone or paired with its predecessor Ombre Nomade.
“It brings new light to the fragrance, and in return takes on greater density,” says Jacques.
In addition to the fundamental spice notes, there are base notes of rose, oud and ambergris. Rose and oud are two cardinal scents often associated with the Middle East.
Starting June the fragrance will be available in Louis Vuitton boutiques with prices starting at Rs 26,000 for a 100 ml bottle and Rs 40,000 for a 200 ml bottle respectively.
