First released in 2004, the three fragrances — Eau Noire, Cologne Blanche, and Bois D'Argent — have been updated b y m a s t e r p e r f u m e r F r a n c i s K u r k d j i a n , their original creator, who now serves as Dior's perfume creation director. Conceived as a trio of complementary scents, the limited- edition trilogy are more than mere fragrances; this edition is a true object of desire, presented in an understated box, with clear flacons revealing each scent's true color. Eau Noire is grassy and spicy, with sun- kissed lavender and a sensual base. Cologne Blanche adds crisp notes of almond, bergamot, and orange, while Bois d'Argent invokes the iris, contrasted with incense smoke. It's a little bit of summer, a little bit of drama, and a whole lot of sexy.

Louis Vuitton has launched nine of the 47 bespoke editions of Nike's iconic Air Force 1 first presented as part of the Spring/Summer 2022 Men's Collection.
