Bottega Veneta launches its first luxury fragrance
When we talk about elite leather, it’s difficult to overlook Bottega Veneta. We have earlier seen many flawless products of the brand like one of the most elegant leather table, an extremely luxury Bottega Veneta BVX watch or a Glamour Clutch.
But, this time Bottega Veneta has done a debut on perfumes as they are launching their first fragrance in collaboration with Coty Prestige. Although it’s not one of the world’s most expensive perfumes, but is portrayed “leathery, floral chypre”. This was conceptualized by Thomas Maier, Bottega’s creative director.
The designer got the inspiration of the sweet fragrance from an old house in the beautiful countryside in Veneto region of Italy with rolling green hills. According to Maier “I envisioned a room with old wood floors, library walls and leather-bound books with the windows open wide, the breeze coming in and cut grass, hay, moss, garden flowers, growing through the room and everything mixing up”.
The new fragrance is a blend of oak moss, Indian jasmine sambac, Brazilian pink peppercorns, Indian patchouli (a floral chypre) and Italian bergamot and is nosed by Michel Almairac form Robertet.
The bottle is shaped in elegant rounded curves and is glassed by Murano glassmakers who developed the glassware of the Company’s eponymous home collection. This special edition perfume is limited to just Bottega’s 165 boutiques worldwide and will be priced at $395 for 3 oz. The company is not restricted to perfumes, while it’s also launching other beauty products like body cream, body lotion and shower gel.
The ad campaign features Nine d’Urso daughter of French fashion icon Inès de la Fressange and Italian art dealer Luigi d’Urso that was shot in South Florida by Bruce Weber. The first launch of the fragrance will be in U.K. at Harrods on July 17.
