Louis Vuitton recently introduced a series of gender-free scents, but its core Parfums often resists gender thanks to sophisticated fragrance blends. Its latest creation has once again been assembled by master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, who has concocted the fashion house’s third Middle East-inspired scent, following Les Sables Roses and Ombre Nomade: Nuit de Feu.

Smokey incense is key to Belletrud’s Nuit de Feu (Night of Fire) mixture, as he described in a statement: “Through its very dense, white smoke, man has communed with the gods for millennia. Incense takes us back to the origins of perfumery and its etymology, per fumare, literally means ‘through smoke.’” White incense from Somaliland is key, wrapped around black incense described as warm, dense and “sensual.” Woody, spicy and lemon-tinged notes accompany a musky hint of natural leather, the French house’s signature, accrued from leather cuttings procured from Louis Vuitton’s Asnières workshop.

“It’s a perfume that does one a world of good,” Belletrud continued. “It’s a blend of essential ingredients that have traversed the ages and forged our civilizations. In a world that’s becoming more and more virtual, I wanted to create a perfume that anchors and reconnects us with nature and our collective history.”

The Nuit de Feu bottle is refillable and Louis Vuitton encourages clients to replenish empty bottles at in-store perfume fountains. Furthermore, Louis Vuitton is commemorating the launch of its third Middle Eastern-inspired fragrance with its first-ever exotic leather perfume case, an elevated variation of a style first introduced in 2016. Handmade by Asnières-based craftspeople, the new case is pieced together one at a time utilizing golden crocodile skin.

Elsewhere, Moncler announced plans to launch its own fragrance line in the not-so distant future.
