Anyone who is familiar with Louis Vuitton fragrance will know of its ability to transport you to distant lands. An art perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud has truly perfected. From desert landscapes to a blossoming rose garden he masterfully blends together more than just fragrances, he blends together olfactive journeys. Now, in its third year, Les Parfums introduces its tenth chapter. Introducing Coeur Battant, translating to beating heart in English. This time, however, the fragrance isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey towards the unknown. Drawing upon the wearer’s emotions, Coeur Battant looks at offering the wearer a chance to rediscover oneself.
Bringing together only the finest raw materials, the fragrance was conceived and blended in Cavallier Belletrud’s creative atelier in Grasse. Creating a scent with “soft opulence” he looked to woody florals that offered a balance between freshness and sensuality. At the preface a crisp pear as zesty as when you first bite into it. Ambrette seed then enters the blend before Cascalone offers a new cascade of freshness. Egyptian jasmine is also at the forefront of the scent. Offering a humid note its richness is emphasized with the addition of narcissus. For the base, patchouli rounds out this symphony of florals.
