Louis Vuitton Afternoon Swim Fragrance Review

Today, I have a perfume review for you. I actually got this perfume as my boyfriend's birthday present. We both love it! I have smelled this perfume many times at the Louis Vuitton store. This is the perfect scent for summer. Now, let's jump into the review!


A plunge into an ocean of sensations. Feeling all the energy of the waves washing over the skin on a hot summer’s day. Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud pays homage to the citruses he particularly loves. He ennobles a rare Sicilian orange lush with juice, like an explosion of vitamins. A sensation of immense freshness imbues this perfume in which bergamot drifts toward a wave of delights, set against a deep current of mandarin.

To complement the light within the Cologne Perfumes, Maison Louis Vuitton asked the Californian artist Alex Israel to surround them with creative radiance. He envisioned a joyful design with pop colors that celebrate this summer without end.

Key Notes:

  • Ambregris

  • Bergamot

  • Ginger

  • Mandarin

  • Orange


I would say this perfume lasts 5 hours. The orange, mandarin and bergamot are the strongest scents. I don't really get that much of the ginger or ambregris. The pink rose petals are in there very softly and subtly. This perfume does not last the entire day. It fades more and more after 5 hours of wearing it.


This perfume has a decent projection. It is very strong when you first spray it on then it slowly fades after each hour passes. People will be able to smell this perfume on you. It's not obnoxious in any way, more like a fresh, sweet fruity scent. I do not like those colognes or perfumes that are so strong, and it is all you smell, and you feel like you cannot get away from it. This perfume is not like that.


This perfume is totally worth the money. I just love this scent. I love fruity scents. It is sweet and orangey. It smells like refreshing oranges to me. This scent is unisex too, so anyone can wear it. The perfect perfume for a date night or out on the town with the girls. The style of the perfume bottle is very classic to Louis Vuitton. This color of blue reminds me of the ocean. The cap is so easy to pull off, and when you put it back on, it just clicks right back into place. You can also get the bottle engraved for free with your or someone else's initials. Never throw away an empty bottle because you can refill it for $100 less than the original cost of the perfume.

Scent: 10/10

Longevity: 8/10

Presentation: 10/10

Projection: 8/10

Value: 10/10

All in all, I highly recommend this perfume. The perfect scent for what is left of summer, haha. You need to add this one to your perfume collection. Also, thinking about doing an updated Fragrance Collection post. It has been over 2 and a half years since I gave you an updated on what I have/ don't have now.
