2014 was the beginning of Christian Louboutin adventure through the world of cosmetics with this Rouge Louboutin nail polish, housed in barb-topped bottles in homage to his vertiginous heels, whose signature red soles came about when the designer grabbed a bottle of varnish from an assistant to add colour to the underside of a sample he’d deemed too plain. Two years later, it is time for a new adventure: the launching of three perfumes.
The three distinct scents are designed to represent three different personalities of the Louboutin women. Bikini Questa Sera brings to mind warm summer nights with jasmine and tuberose; Tornade Blonde is a sweet and feminine blend of red rose, violet and cassis; while Trouble in Heaven is the headiest, most opulent juice, taking in iris, patchouli, tonka absolut and amber. Each one is formulated to hit the senses like a single piano stroke: an unchanging, vibrating ‘ping’, explained the designer.

Louboutin worked alongside British architect Thomas Heatherwick on the design of the bottles, and there’s not a stiletto spike in sight. Instead, the gently undulating glass vessels are ombré-coloured to reflect the scent they contain: sunset hues of amber and gold for Bikini Questra Sera; warm garnet and light gold for Tornade Blonde; and royal purple and gold for Trouble in Heaven.

The twisting glass was based on the idea of folding surfaces, creating a loop which allows the perfume to flow around the central aperture, tapping into Louboutin’s fascination with the idea that “liquid is alive”.
