Louis Vuitton Ombre Nomade was released in 2018, created by Jacques Cavallier. Notes of oud, benzoin, incense and raspberry.
From the brand - "As the day passes, the path of the sun creates shimmering patterns of shadow and light on the dunes. Whilst everything else seems motionless, the desert comes alive and draws the traveler into a passionate odyssey. Designed for lovers of rare essences, Ombre Nomade concentrates that sensation of infinity into one of the most mythical ingredients in perfumery, oud wood. A rebellious material, intoxicatingly beautiful, that the Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud has faceted with a hint of benzoin and raspberry accents. Far away, a smoky wisp of incense floats towards the heavens. Never has oud been so mystical."
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.
Basenotes - "The interplay of just a few rich elements (raspberry, oud, incense, benzoin tears) used boldly and in harmony creates a unique and warm smokey oud. If you place benzoin resin tears on a hot charcoal you get this smokey sweet incense cloud that is reproduced so well in Ombre Nomade. This fragrance is intense and it must be applied lightly so it can be discovered - rather than broadcasting its presence."
Fragrantica - " I think this is what I must have been hoping some of the TF’s would actually be. You know, when you hear the notes and imagine them but they turn out a bit different. Some of them, (for me, 2-3) reeaally good, just not what you were quite hoping. This is what I imagine I’d make if I had the knowledge, skills, and resources to make it. I’m a girl. Dizzyingly, deliriously good. I kinda wanna wear this like a little scent mustache under my nose."
Fragrantica - "This smells luxurious, it is also not sweet like other leather frags. The problem with leather perfumes is they will resemble shoe polish but the good thing with Ombre Nomade is the raspberry and rose saves it from being one. I have smelled countless of rose ouds and this does not count as rose oud fragrance, this is a brand new LV leather bag."
Fragrantica - "I sprayed this 2 months ago and haven't even gotten to the base notes - it's still at the top notes."
