Louis Vuitton: A Perfume Atlas offers a rare look at the time-honored crafts of the perfumer, with specially commissioned illustrations, photographs, and texts revealing the stories of the precious natural elements that form the basis of the house's unique perfumes.

With exclusive, firsthand access to Louis Vuitton's master perfumer, Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, this book explores the sources of the raw materials, the techniques used to harvest them, and how essential oils are extracted, distilled, and composed to create new and complex fragrances. From Chinese magnolia and osmanthus to India's tuberose and jasmine, each seed pod, berry, woody stem, fruit, leaf, and flower opens a world that evokes the thrill of far-off places and names, trade routes, sea journeys, and the rhythms of the seasons.

A poetic celebration of a most mysterious art, Louis Vuitton: A Perfume Atlas is the perfect gift for lovers of nature, luxury, travel, and beauty.
