The bottles that Frank Gehry played a partin designing hold five unique scents from the Louis Vuitton Les Extraitsperfume collection, a collection that is meant to embody liberation andmovement. The sculptural aspect of the bottle’s aluminium crinkled caprepresents Gehry’s aim to represent movement while showcasing the form of aflower sitting on top of a falcon.
This form was inspired by the architect’slove for sailing; the idea of movement on top of the bottle represents theinteraction between their air and the sail while at sea. Gehry’s love for thesea is also present in his design for the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Pariswhich included twelve curving sails and 3,600 glass panels; these perfumebottles are meant to represent the thirteenth sail.
When it comes to the bottles’ shape, theoriginal rounded silhouette that was designed by Marc Newson was maintainedwith few alterations and line expansions on Gehry’s part. These bottles come ina cylindrical white box and showcase the LV logo with the name of the perfumecreated by Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, such as dancing blossom, cosmic cloud,rhapsody, symphony and stellar times.
If you’ve had the chance to smell the newfragrances, do you think this exterior does the perfume justice?
