Tomas Maier’s vision for Bottega Veneta Essence Aromatique evokes the Italian sense of “la dolce vita”, capturing the quintessence of a different moment in the life of the Bottega Veneta woman. A light summer wind dances through the hair of an alluring woman lying peacefully on the beach in an immaculate, white bathing suit. Basking in the serenity of the moment, she exudes a casual elegance that naturally complements her intrinsic beauty. In the background, a jade green sea mirrors the freshness in both palette and scent of the fragrance. Says Maier, “The primary inspiration was the freshness of a summer day and the tranquility of a seaside experience, from the warmth of the sun, to a gentle breeze and the unimaginably captivating infusion of the sea. I wanted to create an unexpected, crisp Cologne that lingers like the essence of understated confidence from the woman who wears it.”
[...] Fresh at first, this unexpectedly new interpretation of a classic Cologne reveals richer notes, making it feminine, more centered. A refreshing yet warm and delicate ambery scent captivates the senses while wrapping you in comfort. First impressions of an aromatic breeze are followed by refined, rounded notes, leaving an unforgettable trail of fresh sophistication that is elegantly textured to last.
