Have you ever been on a holiday or experienced something you wish you could immortalise not just on camera, but in how it felt or smelled? Louis Vuitton has done just that with its first ever collection of men’s fragrances.

Adventure and travel are essential to the Louis Vuitton brand DNA, so it was only natural that the five new men’s scents, created under the direction of master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, evoke the same wild spirit. Click on to find out which you’d be suited to.
