Louis Vuitton Orage was released in 2018, created by Jacques Cavallier, as part of the Les Parfums Louis Vuitton collection. A woody fragrance with notes of bergamot, grapefruit, iris, hedione, pepper, patchouli, Java vetiver oil, Iso E Super and White Musk
From the brand - "The almighty power of patchouli embraces the elegance of iris. At once magical and frightening, the storm’s connection with the sky symbolizes man’s union with the earth. The sacred resonates within the deepest self. From this connection with untamed nature, Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud created a surprising woody fragrance. To express the paradox of mankind’s fragility and the raw force of the elements, Orage blends the nobility of iris with vetiver’s vegetal freshness and a patchouli leaf heart. Majestically, the patchouli commands attention, as luminous as lightning. Suddenly, you crave only one thing: to lean in closer, and breathe in every note.."

Basenotes - "Two thumbs way up for Orage by Louis Vuitton. This fragrance has a unique edge to it that I definitely need in my collection. The vetiver, iris, patchouli combo gives it a spiciness that is also smooth at the same time. The citrus in the opening is fleeting, but the blend of the other listed notes is just excellent. and brings the spiciness with a greeness and a petrichor, atmospheric quality."
Basenotes - "Orage is almost invisible in its seamless combination of notes. I really like this kind of scent. The best blending of bergamot, vetiver and patchouli - maybe ever. The extra boost in this scent is the use of iris as the soft heart that is steady and lifts this scent above average. These notes go so well together and work so naturally to achieve such an effortless balance. I am amazed I have not seen the exact combination before - it is so effortless and wears without friction as if invisible."
