Once it settled however, it transforms into a smooth, chic and sophisticated scent that has all the makings of a classic. What started as a harsh affront to the senses mellows into a leathery yet subtly floral concoction with a slight peppery hint to it. It's warm, spicy and the perfect choice for winter.
It's one of those perfumes that you can't stop smelling it once you spray it on your wrist. It's simply intriguing.
The bottle design is very simple and classic, with a tiny band of leather running around the neck of the bottle. Beautiful.
Bottega Veneta collaborated with photographer Bruce Weber to create the ad campaign and the below videos to accompany it... simply beautiful (although I must admit that the second did make my eyes go funny!)
Available in Eau de Parfum only, starting at £42 for 30ml. It is available now. I'd thoroughly recommend trying this out next time you venture into a perfume hall.
