If Louis Vuitton had tried perfumery in 1927 and 1928, its fragrances had not received the hoped-for success.

It is in collaboration with the nose Jacques Cavallier Belletrud that Louis Vuitton develops its 7 perfumes for 4 long years. All the names of the fragrances have a poetic name loaded with travel and imagination.
“Against Me” is a tribute to vanilla. Jacques Cavallier, who wanted this collection to be as close as possible to nature, made a particular reflection. “But here, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s story was” How can we make an oriental perfume today, without a ton of caramel or praline, or be incredibly boring? ”… One of the answers was to avoid adding saccharin when opening the vanilla pods. “Against Me” is a warm fragrance that allows you to travel to the end of the world and discover a multitude of emotions.
