We suggest you call your financial advisor, because the new Louis Vuitton Les Extraits Collection is worth blowing the budget for. An ingenuous collaboration between perfumer Jacques Cavallier- Belletrud and architect Frank Gehry that combines the best of perfumery and sculptural design, it reinvents the Extraits de Parfum collection with five scents that push the envelope of fluidity with a composition that has no top, heart or base notes. Gehry’s first-ever flacon design, the bottle, topped with “crumpled aluminium”, explores the essence of curves and form to reveal a sculptural piece that seems to come alive.
