Louis Vuitton unveils their latest cologne, Imagination
Just in time for Father’s Day later this month, Louis Vuitton has released its newest cologne, Imagination. Developed in Grasse, France by the house’s master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, Imagination blends amber, black tea, ginger and cinnamon for a distinct scent. “For five years, I’d been dreaming of revealing the beauty of ambergris [grey amber] and expressing the quintessence of its amber note in a way that’s of-the-moment and devoid of nostalgia,” said the Cavallier-Belletrud in a statement. “The pure, sensual and sophisticated amber then becomes the very essence of the perfume and the expression of a very contemporary masculine elegance.”
