Luxury manufacturer Bottega Veneta, best known for its signature leather creations, has recently unveiled their first luxury fragrance. Conceptualized by Thomas Maier, the creative director at Bottega, the perfume was made in collaboration with Coty Prestige. What inspired Maier for this project was the mental picture of 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 result is an alluring blend of oak moss, Brazilian pink peppercorns, Indian jasmine sambac, Indian patchouli and Italian bergamot. All these special aromas are captured in elegant bottles made by Murano glassmakers. You will only find the perfume in one of the 165 Bottega Veneta boutiques around the world, at $395 for 3 oz. Other beauty products that will be available together with the new fragrance are body lotions, body creams and shower gels.
For the ad campaign, Bottega Veneta chose the image of Nine d’Urso, the daughter of Inés de la Fressange, the renowned French fashion icon. ‘I chose Nine to introduce this fragrance because there is something classically elegant about her, yet she is totally modern. She conveys a sense of heritage worn lightly but with respect”, Maier said. Taking pictures of young Nine for the fragrance campaign will be Bruce Weber. On July 17 the first launch of the new fragrance will take place at Harrods.
