Louis Vuitton has just announced its latest collaboration with (RED), the non-profit organization created in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver, to create the Louis Vuitton I (RED) candle. For each candle sold, $60 USD will be donated directly to the Global Fund to help fight the end of AIDS.
The perfumed candle’s mixture has been composed by the House’s Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud and designed by Marc Newson. Belletrud selected top-quality natural ingredients to produce the candle’s scent which consists of fresh peony notes blended with fruity accents of raspberry.
The candle’s classic design has been given a makeover featuring a white ceramic container along with Louis Vuitton’s signature hand-sewn, natural leather handle. The piece arrives in a vibrant shade of matte red, complementing the intense hues of the candle’s lid and base.
You can now purchase the Louis Vuitton I (RED) candle at Louis Vuitton stores worldwide and on louisvuitton.com for $185 USD.
