This year Bottega Veneta launched their first perfume. The fragrance that represents “invisible, private luxury” was inspired by the Veneto region of Italy with “rolling green hills and an old house with its old wood floors, library walls and leather-bound books, with the windows open wide, the breeze coming in and cut grass, hay, moss, garden flowers, growing through the room and everything mixing up”.

A precious elixir containing the notes of bergamot, jasmine, oak moss, patchouli and Brazilian pink pepper was created by Michel Almairac and then poured into limited edition Murano glass bottles decorated with a small metal brunito cap and a leather ribbon clipped with a butterfly stamp.

The decadent campaign featuring gorgeous Nine d’Urso, daughter of Inès de la Fressange included a photo advert and a short movie directed by Tomas Maier and created by Bruce Weber whose work “conveys a mix of spontaneity, sensuality, confidence, and timelessness” according to Maier.

He also explained his choice of the model for the campaign saying that “there is something classically elegant about her, yet she is totally modern. She conveys a sense of heritage worn lightly but with respect.”

  1. How I love a story behind a perfume. It's like capturing Italy's beauty and the heritage of Bottega Veneta in a bottle (Murano glass, no less). xo

  5. I found that video on the German Vogue website and thought that they picked the perfect model. Well, I have to say that I like the photos better than the video; she photographs amazingly. In that particular photo above she could be mistaken for Natalie Portman.

    I would really like to try the perfume. The bottle looks lovely.

    PS. Thank you so much for solving the quote problem. I've already updated it in my post with thanks to you ;-)

  12. Bottega Veneta is such an incredible brand and its creations are all about that elegant style and subtle luxe that I adore. Not to mention that the 'thouch' of the Intrecciato bag is amazing...On the perfume, I haven't tried it yet, but I'm curious. Regarding the ad, while I think Nina D'Urso is lovely, somehow I don't think she is the right choice for this campaign because she looks (well, she is) so young, while the description of the perfume made me think of a more sophisticates/grown-up girl.

  17. You know, I had no idea that they were creating a fragrance. I am generally faithful to Chanel & Bond No 9, but I'm intrigued to check this one out. BV always does things so well.

    re-the hair thanks so much! It means a lot because I cut my own hair :-S (has been some trial and error... and a few errors!)
