What, no comments on this sublime scent? Oh, well, I'll be too glad to volunteer.
Bottega Veneta is an Italian company that started making leather products. The company describes itself as: "... the leader in luxury fashion best known for its signature leather goods, including handbags, luggage and leather wallets." Sort of the Italian version of Coach and Louis Vuitton. They now came up with their signature scent ... and I shall always be grateful for that.
I don't have the ability to describe a scent according to its ingredients, so I will post the company's description: "From the very start, the olfactive identity of the brand appears through the original cross-combination of plum and pink pepper, which brings brightness and depth. A strong and charismatic note of sambac jasmine (a variety of jasmine less animal and more floral), reflects in the heart the elegance of the Bottega Veneta woman. Harmonious contrast between modernity and tradition, this fragrance continues to radiate through its specific leather accord—symbol and signature of Bottega Veneta fashion design."
It is a sublime scent. Classy, mature - as in grown-up, not "old lady," so the "young at any cost" need not panic - elegant. I went to an event where a woman was introducing a book she wrote about scent. I got stopped three times by women asking me what I was wearing. It also got rave reviews on the Saks and Nordie websites.
I strongly recommend this gorgeous scent. It's certainly not cheap, but it still does not reach the outlandish prices some places ask for niche perfumes that don't even deliver (Lucky Scents comes to mind). This one does. I get nothing but compliments from both men and women. I'm going to get a second bottle of this.
