Louis Vuitton is arguably one of the best known and recognisable luxury brands in history. Creating attention-seeking scents since the 1920s, the best Louis Vuitton fragrances for men are luxurious, confident and refined.

Their fragrance heritage was refreshed in 2016, with the brand creating the Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse. Placing Jacques Cavallier Belletrud in the position of in-house perfumer was a genius move.

Best Louis Vuitton Fragrances For Men

Today, the iconic fashion house creates around 40 luxurious fragrances. Here is my take on the best Louis Vuitton fragrances for men.

1. Louis Vuitton Ombre Nomade Eau de Parfum

Review

Ombre Nomade Eau de Parfum (‘Shadow Nomad’) is an amber woody fragrance inspired by nighttime in the desert and the juxtaposition between sun and shadows. Created by fragrance nose Jacques Cavallier Belletrud in 2018.

An opening of smoky incense and semi-sweet raspberry leads to a heart of soft rose, leathery saffron and resinous benzoin.

Upon dry-down, rich oud dominates, supported by amberwood and birch. Settles to a rich and warm woody scent with smoky rose and raspberry.

Top Notes:

Incense, Raspberry

Mid Notes:

Rose, Saffron, Benzoin

Base Notes:

Birch, Amberwood, Oud

Seasons & Longevity

Because of its warmth and the addition of oud, Ombre Nomade Eau de Parfum is perfect for the cooler months of autumn and winter and works exceptionally well at night.

One of the benefits of this fragrance is that it’s really long-lasting at 8+ hours, with what’s described as ‘eternal’ longevity by its fans. I found the projection enormous, so if you want a noticeable scent that really lasts, this is the one for you.

Seasons: Autums, Winter
Longevity 8+ hours

2. Louis Vuitton Nuit de Feu Eau de Parfum

Review

Nuit de Feu Eau de Parfum (‘Night of Fire’) is a woody fragrance inspired by desert nights warmed by crackling campfires out in the open. Launched in 2020, this is another Jacques Cavallier creation to ensure you stand out from the crowd.

This fragrance begins with smoky incense, and I mean smoky! which gradually gives way to rich leather and a nice touch of warm resin.

Dry-down brings a nice amount of rich, woody oud and manly musk. The whole fragrance settles to a smoky leather/woody scent similar to Bvlgari Kobraa.

Top Notes:

Incense

Mid Notes:

Leather, Resin

Base Notes:

Oud, Musk

Seasons & Longevity

The warmth in this fragrance makes it perfect for winter and autumn and leans more towards late afternoon and evening wear. Smells quite dressy to me.

It’s a long-lasting fragrance at 7+ hours with solid projection for the first 4 hours, so it works really well for day-to-night wear.

Seasons: Autums, Winter
Longevity 7+ hours

3. Louis Vuitton Météore Eau de Parfum

Review

Météore Eau de Parfum (‘Meteor’) is an aromatic citrus fragrance that packs a spicy punch to keep you feeling fresh yet masculine. It was created in 2020 by celebrated perfumer Jacques Cavallier.

The fresh and zesty opening of mandarin, neroli and bergamot plus black & pink pepper in the heart reminds me of my precious Acqua di Parma Colonia.

Vetiver and Sichuan pepper appear on the dry-down, bringing woody spice. Settles to a modern freshie packed with citrus and spice.

Top Notes:

Mandarin, Neroli, Bergamot

Mid Notes:

Black pepper, Bink pepper

Base Notes:

Vetiver, Sichuan pepper

Seasons & Longevity

It’s subtle enough for all-day wear, every day. The citrus tones lend well to spring and summer wear, providing a refreshing lift for daytime wear. I would wear this to work as well as out and about.

Météore Eau de Parfum lasts 5+ hours with the only drawback being moderate projection and sillage. It’s an excellent all-around choice if you want to wear your fragrance rather than it wearing you.

Seasons: Spring,Summer
Longevity 5+ hours

4. Louis Vuitton L’Immensité Eau de Parfum

Review

L’Immensité Eau de Parfum (‘The Immensity’) is an ultra-fresh yet spicy fragrance to keep you smelling shower-fresh and confident. It’s inspired by the limitless horizon that stretches across the sky, released in 2018.

Spicy fresh ginger, velvety ambroxan and super-sharp grapefruit collide with a heart of cascalone (watery notes) and musky/fruity labdanum.

In the base, amber and ambergris never really emerge fully. Settles down to a zesty aquatic scent with a nice dose of ginger. It is not a clone of Bleu de Chanel, but it has a bit of a Chanel vibe.

Top Notes:

Fresh ginger, Ambroxan, Grapefruit

Mid Notes:

Cascalone, Labdanum

Base Notes:

Amber, Ambergris,

Seasons & Longevity

L’Immensité is a beautiful fragrance for spring and summer but works well in autumn too. Great for running errands, post-gym, fancy lunches, and even office safe.

As a freshie, it’s a long-lasting fragrance at 5+ hours with a moderate sillage. Ideal for daytime wear when you want your scent to be subtle but last a long time.

Seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn
Longevity 5+ hours

5. Louis Vuitton Orage Eau de Parfum

Review

Orage Eau de Parfum (‘Storm’) is a woody fragrance for men inspired by untamed nature. It harnesses the power of patchouli with the elegance of iris. Jacques Cavallier Belletrud created this classy male scent in 2018.

Bergamot and grapefruit provide a refreshing and realistic citrus opening that gives way to pepper and powdery iris in the heart.

Soon, earthy/musky patchouli emerges to stamp its authority, supported by vetiver and ambrette on dry down to create a complex, compliment-getting scent which is a great benefit!

Top Notes:

Bergamot, Grapefruit

Mid Notes:

Pepper, Iris

Base Notes:

Patchouli, Vetiver, Ambrette

Seasons & Longevity

This also means that it’s a good scent for all-year-round wear, which is a great benefit. It works perfectly in spring, summer or autumn, though probably best for daytime thanks to its fresh, citrus scent.

It’s a subtle fragrance that lasts 6+ hours but remains pretty close to the skin. I feel this is the scent you can make your own without feeling overpowering. A crowd-pleaser, not a room clearer!

Any Season
Longevity 6+ hours

6. Louis Vuitton Nouveau Monde Eau de Parfum

Review

Nouveau Monde Eau de Parfum (‘New World’) is an amber fragrance for men inspired by legendary explorer Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza. He was one of Louis Vuitton’s first clients, who travelled throughout Africa with his custom-made Brazza trunk bed!

Mouthwatering blackcurrant and smokey incense collide with soft rose and leathery saffron, letting you know you are in for something unique.

Woody oud works so well with dark cocoa and musky patchouli. It’s a warm, spicy scent that perfectly captures the feeling of exploration and daring bravado.

Top Notes:

Blackcurrant, Incense

Mid Notes:

Rose, Saffron

Base Notes:

Oud, Cocoa, Patchouli

Seasons & Longevity

It’s a great scent for autumn and winter, with the warmth of the spicy accents in Nouveau Monde working really well for nighttime wear. For me, it’s fine for casual or dressy occasions.

Nouveau Monde is a long-lasting fragrance (8+ hours), making it a great choice if you want a scent that works throughout the day. It seems you get what you pay for performance-wise.

Seasons: Autums, Winter
Longevity 8+ hours

Review

Sur la Route Eau de Parfum (‘On the Road’) is an incredibly fresh citrus aromatic fragrance for men first launched in 2018. Created by Louis Vuitton’s go-to fragrance nose Jacques Cavellier Belletrud and inspired by travel and adventure.

A super-fresh opening of bergamot and lemon soon merges with spiced pepper, nutmeg and grassy notes. It’s almost Creed-like in its delivery, but that’s no drawback.

In the base, leather dominates, adding a refined gentleman feel with hints of Peru balsam and musk. Settles to a unique and enveloping freshie that resonates like a vivid heartbeat.

Top Notes:

Bergamot, Lemon

Mid Notes:

Grassy notes, Pepper, Nutmeg

Base Notes:

Peru Balsam, Musk, Leather

Seasons & Longevity

A zesty/leathery scent that’s an excellent choice for spring and summer daytime wear; zingy, captivating and refreshing. I love the leather too.

This fragrance lasts 5+ hours which is pretty good for a freshie, making it a good all-round choice.

Seasons: Spring,Summer
Longevity 5+ hours

8. Louis Vuitton Au Hasard Eau de Parfum

Review

Au Hasard Eau de Parfum (‘Randomly’) is a woody fragrance for men. It is described as an ‘olfactory UFO based on sandalwood ventures towards the unknown’, taking inspiration from travel and chance meetings.

A hit of cardamom starts things off nicely, tempered by succulent mandarin. Ambrette and petitgrain in the heart add a rich, spiced, almost animalic scent.

Leather and musk in the base soon dominate, supported by sandalwood, creating a complex and unusual blend of scents to excite and invigorate. Very manly, but in a good way.

Top Notes:

Cardamom, Mandarin

Mid Notes:

Ambrette, Petitgrain

Base Notes:

Leather, Musk, Sandalwood

Seasons & Longevity

In my humble opinion, I found the warmth in this fragrance lends itself well to autumn, winter, and early spring. Works equally as well day and night.

Louis Vuitton Au Hasard lasts 6+ hours with reasonable protection and sillage, making it a great everyday scent to wear.

Seasons: Autumn, Winter, Spring
Longevity 6+ hours

Andrew’s Top Pick

Best Louis Vuitton Fragrances For Men

Ombre Nomade Eau de Parfum

My top pick is Ombre Nomade Eau de Parfum. I enjoy its deep rich woodiness and am impressed how the raspberry and smoky rose add lift. Plus, the longevity and projection are both is excellent.

Conclusion

For a seriously luxurious set of scents, look no further than the best Louis Vuitton fragrances for men. They’re well constructed, use unusual note combinations, and perform well; what more could you want?

Whichever scent in the range you go for, you have will be adding something different and unique to your collection. If you want to treat someone in your life too, it’s an ideal gift when you want to splash out.

The Louis Vuitton fragrance collection comes in 100ml/3.4 oz and 200ml/6.8 oz bottles, plus most are refillable. Considering their longevity and projection, a little goes a long way, so although they seem expensive, price vs performance is a thumbs up from me.

There’s a reason that Louis Vuitton is still making fragrances almost 100 years later; their dedication to quality and luxury is evident in every scent they create. Louis Vuitton perfumes for women are equally stunning.
