The DNA of Louis Vuitton is really to dare. It’s innovation from a technical point of view, but also the recognition that you cannot be successful if you don’t dare. You cannot be successful if you are not new. But with perfumes, just like a dress or shoes, you also cannot be bizarre – there are codes you need to respect. With a pair of shoes, they have to be comfortable, especially if they are expensive. For perfume, you need volume, allure, signature and sophistication. If you have those four, you can do whatever you want.
