    Default New Louis Vuitton - Imagination (?)

    From Instagram - new men's scent. Amber, black tea, citrus, cedar. Bottle is light blue-green. Not sure if this is legit or not.

    I haven't heard anything either about this from my LV contacts.

    I managed to score a sample of this today. I'm a bit surprised. It's as if Afternoon Swim and Cactus Garden had a baby. "Afternoon Garden" or "Cactus Swim"? It's nice. To me, it's not as special as Afternoon Swim, but it's better than Cactus Garden, which isn't my favorite.

    I may pass on this one.

    So much for LV Client Services. No appearance of this on their website. Today was supposed to be the pre-launch on their website.

    I visited my boutique around lunchtime. They didn't have a tester out, but I asked about it and they brought me a sample.

    So, an hour later, the listed amber note is coming through. It still retains the fresh DNA of AS and CG though.

    According to LV Client Services (just got off the phone with them) Today was an "internal pre-launch" to acquaint the sales reps with the scent, notes, etc. and the public launch is still slated for June 3rd.

    If that's the case, then I'll pass with you. I bought and love Afternoon Swim, but Cactus Garden was not wearable for me.

    A lot of the latter offerings sound like fresh perfumes.
    The last time I tried LV fragrances they were skin scents.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Some of them are, but others in the line are most definitely not just skin scents.

    I reached out to my SA today, and no wonder I hadn't heard from her for a bit: she's no longer in the store. *sigh* She was happy to hear from me, though, and said she would pass on my info and requests to another SA. Maybe I'll stop by the boutique this weekend.

    Also, is it me or is the font on “Imagination” kinda screwy? I noticed it on the image and thought it was some artifact, but it’s on the sample vial as well. The “O” is very narrow, like a zero, compared to the “G”, which is totally round. Hidden message? Coordinates to Cavallier’s prison cell?

    Never mind. Orage has the same font. I’ve been watching too many detective shows.

    I stopped by the store today to speak with an SA my former SA put me in touch with, and she gave me some samples of Imagination.

    It's not very exciting, but par for the course with Louis Vuitton, it seems to be very well made. It does remind me a bit of Cactus Garden and Afternoon Swim. It's more reminiscent of something else that's not a Louis Vuitton, though...I just can't name exactly what. I think a lot of people will just think it's a boring take on a designer fragrance.

    It's not for sale yet, and she said she didn't know when it'd be for sale, but she would let me know. She gave me two samples, so I'll give it a few wears to see how I like it.

    Thanks for the updates on this one. Personally, I'm hoping it turns out better for me than Meteore.
