N othing thrills us more than a new men's fragrance — and Météore, the latest scent from Louis Vuitton, is a worldly addition. Created by master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud at his atelier in Grasse, the scent promises to "arouse fascination all along its path" and transform space into time to reveal new horizons. Heady stuff. The sixth scent in the Parfums Louis Vuitton collection, it's a mix of Calabrian bergamot, mandarin, Sicilian orange, and neroli with a trio of peppers, cardamom, nutmeg, and an earthy finishing note of Java vetiver. This is exactly what I — a lover of both fine fragrances and the study of the cosmos — have been missing in my life. $265, refill $165, at select Louise Vuitton boutiques, S panish designer Jaime Hayon first collaborated with Baccarat in 2011 for Baccarat Zoo, a three-piece set o f c r y s t a l - a n d - porcelain animals launched at the Milan Furniture Fair. Now the designer and crystal maker explore the theme further with Faunacrystopolis, a capsule collection of tumblers and limited-edition objets. A four-piece tumbler set pairs Baccarat's iconic Chateau design w i t h H a y o n ' s characters — part human, part animal — engraved into the base. Of special interest are the three limited-edition collaborations: Animal Louis Vuitton's new Météore men's fragrance Dior Maison canework tray, $1,450; engraved water glass, $180. Shooting Star D ior Maison has released a classically beautiful set of dinnerware designed by Cordelia de Castellane. Taking its cues from the earliest days of the house and crafted from extra-fine white Limoge porcelain, Cannage Provence is an interpretation of house founder Christian Dior's fashion shows — from a time when the designer would seat guests on elegant Napoleon III-style chairs decorated in canework. The canework pattern would become house code, which de Castellane has artfully interpreted into a stunning series of plates, glasses, and carafes as part of the permanent collection.

CLaSSIC DIOR MAISON ANIMAl attraCtIon Heads, a six-piece set that took more than two years to complete; the hand-gilded Maneki Neko Cat figurine; and the Faunacrystopolis Ring Pop, which marks the designer's first foray into jewelry.
