Louis Vuitton Imagination was released in 2021, created by Jacques Cavallier, as part of the Les Parfums Louis Vuitton collection. Notes of citron, Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian orange, Ceylon cinnamon, Tunisian neroli, Nigerian ginger, Chinese black tea, guaiac wood and olibanum.
From the brand - "With an over-generous dose of Ambrox — perfumery’s white gold — the Master Perfumer reinvents the ambery accord to express a sensual and contemporary masculine elegance. Its contrasts appear upon contact with noble citrus and black tea from China extracted with CO2, a magical ingredient that carries within it the soul of travel. With Imagination, the spirit rises, escapes and conquers new paths of freedom."
Louis Vuitton is a French luxury fashion company - famous for their gorgeous and distinctive bags and the LV monogram. Founded in 1854, it was folded into LMVH, which has the brands of Moet et Chandon, Hennessy and Louis Vuitton.
Persolaise - "... to make the point that the perfumer hasn’t merely dug up a formula from his dusty notebooks. As others have done before, he shows us with this release that scent-creation is a cumulative art, with new ideas building upon earlier ones, pulling them in novel directions, giving them surprising twists, presenting them in subtly, but markedly, different ways."
Fragrantica - "I especially love the delicate cinnamon note that contrasts so interestingly with the fresh citrus notes. I definitely feel like this can go unisex, and can be a day/night, spring/summer/fall perfume. I feel like this runs in the same family as Méterore and On The Beach as far as that freshness. Layering it with Ombré Nomad also creates an interesting combo"
Fragrantica - "it started to warm up and some of the subtle nuances began to shine through all the noise of the opening; ginger, cinnamon, neroli and tea. I do think that this is one of those fragrances where people will pick up different notes according to their sense of smell. As it dries down, I can detect the neroli and spices and the tea note becomes more apparent later on. However, it is the muskiness that I enjoy the most. What a change from the initial spray, and a great one at that. I do think that the main accords, as listed above are fairly accurate although I wouldn’t describe it as warm spicy in the traditional sense."
Fragrantica - "Compliment beast and very sexy and seductive, love the way the cinnamon plays with the citruses. Its nothing mind blowing but still unique. Top quality ingredients."
