Louis Vuitton celebrates fresh beginnings with a new fragrance
Inspired by the sun's first rays at the break of dawn, Louis Vuitton Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud
captured that waking moment witnessed every morning, the anticipation of a new day bursting with optimism, in a
new fragrance called Le Jour Se Lève. The key olfactory note within this exquisite new perfume is mandarin, one
of his favourite ingredients.
"Mandarin is a marvellous citrus fruit because it's possible to diffuse from it simultaneously the optimism of its
flesh, the freshness of the zest, and the floral aspect of the tree," says Belletrud. A fresh, unique scent that
defies expectations, the perfume also has notes of precious Jasmine Sambac from China (the same variety used for
green teas in Asia), hints of magnolia, apricot-tinged osmanthus, and tangy blackcurrant. To juxtapose its freshness,
a chorus of musks lend an assertive quality to this fragrance.
Louis Vuitton Le Jour Se Lève is the latest addition to the brand's existing fragrance collection. Read more about the other seven fragrances
