Like its renowned range of leather goods, Bottega Veneta has transposed its knowledge of luxury into a wonderous bottle of sensual delight, in its new fragrance, Eau Légère. It is inspired by a vision of the Venetian countryside. In this dream, the supple sensuality of the fashion house’s sumptuous leather goods is suffused with warmth, sunshine, and a summer breeze redolent of hay, earth, forest, and flowers.
Bottega Veneta Eau Légère illuminates the brightest, freshest facets of the original Bottega Veneta fragrance, offering a soft, sparkling, and intensely individual signature. Master perfumer Michel Almairac, whose aim was to achieve a gentle freshness while “preserving the soul of the Bottega Veneta original,” describes the act of creating Bottega Veneta Eau Légère as “passing the original fragrance through a waterfall.”
An elegant and unexpected balance of nature and art, it is a fragrance that lingers in the mind like the memory of an unforgettable woman.
“I wanted something completely new, a creation that combines the sensuality of the original Bottega Veneta fragrance with the clarity and freshness of water,” explains Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier of the inspiration behind this new elixir.
The leathery floral chypre features dazzling top notes that maintain the identity of the eau de parfum while providing a new brilliance. The heart of the fragrance continues to radiate through its unique floral accord, now animated by delicate gardenia. A combination of musk and oak moss creates a trail that is feminine and graceful.
Bottega Veneta Eau Légère is available from 31 March 2013 from David Jones and Bottega Veneta boutiques, starting at $95 for the 30ml Eau de Toilette.
