Bottega Veneta’s Italian promenades
The house is launching a collection of perfumes inspired by the renaissance villas built by the architect Palladio.
Under the impetus of its artistic director Thomas Maier, Bottega Veneta has created a line of perfumes that pay tribute to Venice, birthplace of the brand, and six villas and their gardens conceived in the 16th century by the architect Palladio. Each perfume is a unique promenade featuring a botanical element. “Pay special heed to I”, created by perfumer Michel Almairac, a subtle ode to magnolia and lily of the valley; “II” is all about cypress and its flowing green facets as envisaged by Alexis Dadier, and then “V”, the aromatic bouquet touched with laurel and sage by Daniela Andrier. The bottles are adorned with pattern of interlaced glass just like the emblematic woven leather of the house.
Parco Palladiano Collection, BOTTEGA VENETA. 265 euros for a 100 ml bottle. Available exclusively in the Bottega Veneta boutiques.
