I couldn't find this perfume anywhere, none of the stores near me didn't know anything about it, the perfume counters at airports didn't stock it and I was starting to give up hope (or pay the money to purchase it and cross my fingers that I liked it). When I was last up London, I paid a visit to Selfridges and my heart skipped a beat when I saw they had it in stock. I rushed up to the conter and it was love at first sniff, I gladly handed over my money to own the perfume that I had been searching for, for so long.
This is the description from the Bottega Veneta website, who wouldn't fall for a perfume after this write up?:
Bottega Veneta, the eau de parfum, evokes the suppleness and sensuality of the house’s renowned leather goods. The fragrance, a leathery floral chypre, marries the olfactory language of the Venetian countryside—fresh meadows, mown hay, flowers, earth, and wood—with the gentle richness of leather in a creation crafted with the meticulousness of a master artisan. Combining soft, rounded curves and powerful shapes, a smooth outside and an intrecciato texture on the bottom, the Bottega Veneta bottle is an object that reveals its complexity only over time. The colors are signature Bottega Veneta: a brunito cap and collar, an ebano logo and a skin colored leather ribbon clipped with a brunito butterfly. The bottle itself, inspired by Venetian glasswork and the traditional Italian carafe, designed with an eye for timeless lines and resonant juxtapositions, is in every way a vessel of harmonious simplicity and perfectly balanced contradictions.
