Following the roaring success of Bottega Veneta's Eau D Parfum in 2011, and the expansion of the range early this year, they are now launching their first men's fragrance. Created by the house of Givaudan, by perfumiers Daniela Andrier and Antoine Maisondieu, once again Bottega have used Coty Prestige for this latest creation.
The inspiration behind the fragrance said Tomas Meyer is apparently the idea of a man leaving the Veneto range and travelling to the north, and staying in a mountain house, with strong cold breezes from a forest. The fragrance features Andalusian Labdanum, with Calabrian Bergamot, Siberian Pine, Balkan Juniper, Jamaican Pepper, Canadian Fir Resin, Mediterranean Clary Sage leather and Indonesian Patchouli, a rich a diverse cocktail of ingredients making for a seriously mature and elegant masculine scent.
The packaging is shaped just like the Women's fragrance, but is made from grey glass rather than the soft pink glass of the ladies version, additionally, just as the initial Women's release featured a special Murano glass version for collectors, this also will offer the same.
Both versions will be available for purchase from September 2014, and pricing has yet to be announced.
