It’s not often that a fragrance is described as having a “subtle intellect” but then Bottega Veneta is not your average fashion brand. With a strong foundation of craftsmanship and a commitment to creative collaborations, Bottega Veneta is not just about following the latest trends.
Founded in Vincenza, Italy, in 1966 by Michele Taddei, Bottega Veneta became famous for its signature woven bags made using a leather weaving technique called intrecciato.
This heritage is evident in the latest fragrance, Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Parfum, where the intrecciato design decorates the box.
The fragrance itself takes inspiration from the imagination of Creative Director Tomas Maier in which a Bottega Veneta man hikes through Italy’s Dolomites, wafted by a fragrant breeze of cedar leaves, fir cones and pine needles to a rustic retreat where the hero relaxes on aged leather cushions.
Maier collaborated with Master Perfumer Daniela Andrier and Perfumer Antoine Maisondieu, who were also responsible for the original Bottega Veneta Pour Homme fragrance four years ago. In keeping with the heritage of the brand, the new parfum blends the finest ingredients: opening notes of cedar leaves and spicy cardamom, a heart of pimento and fir balsam and base notes of sensual leather and tonka bean blend into a sophisticated fragrance representing strength and masculinity.
In common with the original fragrance, Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Parfum aims to combine sensuality and the aforementioned subtle intellect.
The ad campaign features model Zak Steiner and photographer Axel Lindahl, who reprise their roles from the original Pour Homme campaign.
Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Eau de Parfum is available in two sizes: 50ml (€80) and 90ml (€115).
