Bottega Veneta Eau de Parfum

I got the chance to try Bottega Veneta's highly anticipated debut fragrance today, and I hated it. When you first spray it the scent is harsh, somewhat obnoxious to the senses and it made me instantly wrinkle my nose...

Once it settled however, it transforms into a smooth, chic and sophisticated scent that has all the makings of a classic. What started as a harsh affront to the senses mellows into a leathery yet subtly floral concoction with a slight peppery hint to it. It's warm, spicy and the perfect choice for winter.

It's one of those perfumes that you can't stop smelling it once you spray it on your wrist. It's simply intriguing.

The bottle design is very simple and classic, with a tiny band of leather running around the neck of the bottle. Beautiful.
The ad campaign with Nina d'Urso is equally as chic.

Bottega Veneta collaborated with photographer Bruce Weber to create the ad campaign and the below videos to accompany it... simply beautiful (although I must admit that the second did make my eyes go funny!)

Available in Eau de Parfum only, starting at £42 for 30ml. It is available now. I'd thoroughly recommend trying this out next time you venture into a perfume hall.
