CRAFTING A SIGNATURE
Bottega Veneta, the eau de parfum, evokes the suppleness and sensuality of the house’s renowned leather goods. The fragrance, a leathery floral chypre, marries the olfactory language of the Venetian countryside—fresh meadows, mown hay, flowers, earth, and wood—with the gentle richness of leather in a creation crafted with the meticulousness of a master artisan. The backbone of the fragrance is chypre with a combination of bergamot, patchouli and oak moss. Sensual floral and spicy components gesture toward the East, a recollection of Venice’s place at the end of the Silk Road. Natural ingredients trace a global path: there is bergamot from Italy, Jasmine Sambac picked in India, and patchouli from Indonesia. Composed by renowned master perfumer Michel Almairac, the Bottega Veneta fragrance reveals its signature character from the start. The structure of the fragrance is unique, a fine mesh of extraordinary raw materials whose individual scents are woven together to create a supple and harmonious whole.
Bottega Veneta Eau Légère illuminates the brightest, freshest facets of the Bottega Veneta fragrance, offering a soft, sparkling, and intensely individual signature.
The Bottega Veneta Eau Légère bottle mirrors the soft curves and clean lines of the eau de parfum in a lighter, more luminous shade of pale. The refined paper label, with its fine, dark border, evokes the woven label inside a fine, hand-constructed garment.
“A fragrance, like a person, has many moods,” says Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier. “Bottega Veneta Eau Légère expresses a tender and hopeful mood, those moments when a woman feels most alive and open to the possibilities of the world around her.”
The Murano bottle is a particularly pure expression of the quality and craftsmanship of Bottega Veneta. The flacon, designed by Creative Director Tomas Maier as a vessel for the parfum, is an object of timeless sophistication and contemporary functionality. The bottle is made of exceptionally fine glass hand-blown by artisans of one of the leading glassworks on the island of Murano.
An intrecciato motif is etched onto the base using a unique die-cut technique, while the Bottega Veneta logo is sandblasted on the side. The neck is encircled with a noce leather ribbon and fixed with an antique brass butterfly seal. Finally, there is the juice, a deep shade of amber typical of Murano glass.
