Bottega Veneta ties the knot with its new perfume
A sweet-smelling union with the fragrance world
The new scent, called Knot, is fresh, floral, and breezy – different from its leathery predecessor – "This is part of our journey of scent....behind each fragrance, there is a precise idea," said Bottega Veneta's creative director Tomas Maier.
The inspiration for Knot came from an imaginary house on the Italian coast, with the smell of fresh flowers and laundry wavering through an open window. "What I'm working on is creating a world," Maier added, emphasising that each fragrance is an important and timeless piece in the brand's fragrance puzzle.
Created by Daniela Andrier of Givaudan, the new scent's body starts with a clementine accord, mixing mandarin, limette, neroli and orange flower. While sweet Lavender is at the heart, with rose and peony providing a floral bouquet to contrast the earthier musk and Tabaco-scented Tonka beans at its base.
The advertising campaign, will feature Australian model Julia Nobis in a series of intimate portraits by David Armstrong, with Knot set to roll out onto shelves this September.
