Everyone knows Louboutin, the red bottom shoes that celebrities and fashionistas love, but this month, Christian Louboutin will launch his first-ever collection of fragrances, Loubiworld.
Louboutin has said that fragrance has been something he wanted to do for some time, but it wasn’t enough to create one signature scent, he wanted to create a full line. He created seven new fragrances. The collection has been in development for around two years. Each scent is a fully developed theme and has detailed luxury packaging. “The most important thing for me was to take the time to make Loubiworld a really complete collection, reflect on the fragrances themselves, the design of the bottle, and caps.”
Here’s the full Loubiworld lineup and a brief rundown of each fragrance’s most prominent notes:
- Loubicroc: myrrh, cypriol (herbaceous, similar to papyrus), sandalwood
- Loubifunk: rose, blackcurrant, patchouli
- Loubiraj: suede, cedar, pink pepper
- Loubikiss: jasmine, tuberose, musk
- Loubidoo: strawberry, rose, cedar
- Loubirouge: cardamom, iris, vanilla
- Loubicrown: cedar, patchouli, tonka bean (spicy, similar to almond)
Each scent is inspired by a different culture, experience, or personality that has “left an imprint” on Louboutin’s mind. “These seven fragrances are based on dream worlds, erasing the frontier between reality and imagination,” he elaborates. “They are truly a collection in that they are each unique, yet no one fragrance stands out more than the others.”
Louboutin can’t pick a personal favorite out of the seven because, as he explains, they all represent “different olfactory families, beginning with the lightest — Loubifunk, a floral rose, and Loubidoo, a floral fruity — and evolving into the most intense – Loubicrown, a woody oriental, and Loubicroc, a spicy oriental fragrance.”
I love the names of the scents.
