Bottega Veneta Knot Eau AbsolueBottega Veneta Knot Eau Absolue sparkles with top notes of sweet heliotrope and neroli note along with floral accords of jasmine and lavender. The base calms on opoponax and myrrh notes. For me, myrrh is one of the notes I simple adore due to its rareness and exquisiteness.

Prada La Femme Intense and L’Homme Intense

Prada La Femme Intense for Women for Men

Italian Fashion house Prada has extended its La Femme Prada and L’Homme Prada fragrance range with new Intense versions.

The inspiration for the Intense scents came from the idea of taking Prada’s longstanding ‘obsession’ with gender and placing it under a magnifying glass of perfumery.

At the epicenter of the House, La Femme Prada and L’Homme Prada represent a fluid relationship between polar definitions. The family of fragrances draw on both time honored ingredients and surprising compositions, yielding fragrances that defy expectations.

Prada La Femme Intense

Prada La Femme Intense for Women

Prada La Femme Intense is a flanker to last year’s La Femme perfume coming out with a more intense and intensified concentration. The seductive ylang-ylang in the heart starts to melt into a provocative and primal female scent along with floral accords of tuberose and patchouli.

La Femme Prada Intense is an Eau de Parfum with a sultry, almost oriental quality, which exudes a heady sensuality. Created by Daniela Andrier, Prada La Femme Intense is composed as an elegant, sophisticated, and seductive perfume.

Prada La Femme Intense is available as 35, 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum Intense


Prada L’Homme Intense

Prada L'Homme Intense for Men

The instinctive, human, highly crafted and boundlessly imaginative approach that Prada ascribes to the making of fragrance is everywhere present in the ‘olfactory maps’ for both La Femme Prada and L’Homme Prada. Designed to take the wearer on a voyage through place, memory and time, somehow there appears a sensual meeting point for these distinct female and male fragrances to consummate an aesthetic relationship through experimentation and tradition.

L’Homme Prada is a fragrance of pairs, of doubles, of juxtapositions and layers. The classic codes of the male Fougère are all present in Neroli, Geranium and Patchouli. Yet the interchangeable male/female Prada signatures are present, too, in the shape of Iris and Amber, the principal elements, while the introduction of tonka bean brings an oriental dimension to the top.. It is a mix that is both airy and yet purposefully, highly sensual.

Prada L’Homme Intense is available as 50, 100 and 150ml Eau de Toilette Intense with an accompanying collection which includes a 125 ml Sooting Aftershave Balm, 200 ml Tonic Shower Cream, 2 x 100 gr Velvet Soap, 100 ml Deodorant Spray and a 75 ml Deodorant Stick.


Prada La Femme Intense For Men Prada L'Homme for Women

The fragrance bottles and packaging, functioning as two individual parts of a whole, are complimentary. As with the original L’Homme Prada and La Femma Prada, the bottles feature Prada saffiano leather on the back – burgundy for the feminine scent and black for the masculine.

Millennial actors Mia Goth, Mia Wasikowska, Dane DeHaan and Ansel Elgort once again feature in the promotional film for La Femme Prada Intense and L’Homme Prada Intense.




Prada Infusion de Rose

logo-pradaPerfumer Daniela Andrier collaborated with Miuccia Prada to create a collection of  elegant and sophisticated unisex fragrances. Each fragrance is an interpretation of natural ingredients and the contrast between traditionalism and modernity. The fragrances of this collection were launched as limited editions. The Infusion collection from Italian fashion house Prada began in 2007 with Infusion d’Iris.

In 2015, Prada returns this collection as permanent. It presents six fragrances: the re-launched Infusion d’Iris, Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger from 2009 and Infusion de Vertiver from 2010, and three editions Infusion d’Iris Cèdre Prada, Infusion d’Amande and Infusion d’Oeillet from 2015.



Prada Infusion de Rose

Now Prada presents its new version of their popular perfume Prada Infusion de Rose (2011). The new edition resembles much the original perfume launched in 2011 – an infusion of a delicate and adorable bouquet of flowers.

However, the new Prada Infusion de Rose perfume still has its new point of view and a more updated composition. This perfume blends one of the finest and aromatic roses in the world: Turkish and Bulgarian roses along with neroli, galbanum and a fresh mandarin notes.



Bvlgari’s Le Gemme Imperiali

Bvlgari Le Gemme Imperiali Jade Collection

Bvlgari’s romantic past with jade is as colourful as the most cherished and sensuous stone of the East. The love affair blossomed in its colour revolution back in the 1950s and ’60s, when the jeweller took to Chinese antique jade carvings. The central part of its Roman flagship store, at the Via Condotti, housed bracelets, earrings, brooches, and even carved ‘paper knife’ handles no different from those of ancient traditions. As the Jade Gallery grew, so did Bvlgari’s fascination with the mystical stone.

The great refinement, knowledge and mystery of ancient China have always fascinated me. I find jade very special; the incredible opacity but also the milky transparency of jade in the light. The unique shades with their soft polish is very sensual.

Daniela Andrier, master perfumer

More than half a century later, Bvlgari wanted to develop a trilogy of fragrances as a tribute to China. The idea was then to transcribe the refined and sophisticated elegance of its traditional culture conveyed by jade into three fragrances, then finding the perfect balance and creating harmony. Bvlgari continues its lifelong dedication with three new floral perfumes Le Gemme Imperiali. Imagined from the purest jades of green, white and purple, they embody splendour, purity and desire, respectively.


Bvlgari’s Le Gemme Imperiali

Each is bottled in elegant flacons with their respective jade slivers and topped with the iconic golden fans of the Bulgari Diva jewellery collection.

Each fragrance has been associated with other notable and precious ingredients. Splendia, the green jade, is a blend of magnolia, narcissus absolute and tree moss, conveying natural elegance. Irina, the white jade, sees the combination of magnolia and jasmine petals absolute with sensual musk. It conveys purity. Finally, Desiria, the rare purple jade, is a combination of magnolia with lush petal flowers and a unique ambergris accord. It imbues a feeling of delicately floral richness.

It seemed clear to me early on that it should be the common luxurious ingredient of this trilogy of fragrances. Magnolia flower oil has a unique scent but is also very exclusive. The flower has a waxy aspect, reminiscent of the milky aspect of jade. It comes from China, is precious and gives a rich and natural note to the fragrances.

Daniela Andrier, master perfumer

Jade culture in China has inspired Bvlgari designers who carefully designed new fragrance bottles aligning them with the jade colors. Irinia, Desiria and Splendia take the form of previous Le Gemme bottles in black decorated with white, purple and green surfaces clearly suggesting the type of jades. Details in gold color on the edges and stopper further contribute to the beauty and elegance of the bottle.

Bvlgari Le Gemme Imperiali Irina,

A journey into the purity, mysticism and serenity of Ancient China. Inspired by the purest white jade and its aura of peacefulness, respect and generosity. Irina, a name of Greek origin, signifying ‘peace’, pays delicate homage to women of supreme elegance and femininity, whose beauty and poise emanate as much from within as from without. Bvlgari’s Le Gemme Imperiali – Irinia is a sensual and sophisticated Eau de Parfum of sumptuous floral musk notes.

Bvlgari’s Le Gemme Imperiali Irina1As key notes of the composition, perfumers selected floral notes of magnolia and jasmine followed with sensual musk.

Bvlgari Le Gemme Imperiali Desiria,

A journey through a luxuriant royal garden of the Tang empire. The soul of this luscious fragrance is mauve jade – a rare and exuberant gemstone. Desiria, meaning ‘desire’, conveys everlasting love and passion throughMauve jade. A sultry and captivating Eau de Parfum, the scent of a Chinese garden fantasized.

Bvlgari’s Le Gemme Imperiali Desiria1Desiria carefully transfers desire with the fragrant bouquet of roses surrounded by magnolia blossoms and a warm cloud of musk.

Bvlgari Le Gemme Imperiali Splendia,

Emblematic of Asia’s imperial power, the sublime green jade gemstone has been coveted by Emperors and Aristocrats for thousands of years. Splendia, a name that evokes the beauty and splendour of the Queen of all jades.

Bvlgari’s Le Gemme Imperiali Splendia1Splendia showcases floral notes of magnolia and narcissus over moss that provides a natural and earthy tone. Green jade on the bottle reflects the freshness and green colors with a scent of lush spring daffodils.

They convey beauty and sophistication in a delicate but nevertheless affirmed way. The woman who wears these fragrances signals her presence and personality with an understated yet unmistakable message of grace. Graceful, but long-lasting and very memorable.

Bvlgari Le Gemme Imperiali are available in a 100 ml Eau de Parfum at the price of 235 pounds.


The Scent of Italy: Bottega Veneta Parco Palladiano


Bottega Veneta unveils Parco Palladiano fragrance collection

Although we may not all be able to experience the vast cultural heritage and lush landscapes of Italy, except probably as a vacation now and then, Italian fashion label Bottega Veneta says it has bottled the experience into the Parco Palladiano fragrance collection. Bottega Veneta aims to convey the pure sense and spirit of the Veneto region in Italy, and especially the scents from the garden of its famed Palladian villas, with its new unisex fragrance collection.

The result of over two years work, the Parco Palladiano collection is numbered by simple Roman numerals – I, II, III, IV, V, VI – to reflect the classical heritage of the Palladian villas. Just like everything created by Bottega Veneta, the Parco Palladiano collection expresses the maison’s four cornerstones: fine quality materials, artisanal craftsmanship, contemporary functionality, timeless yet innovative design.


“Palladio is a source of endless inspiration for me in many ways”, says Tomas Maier, who conceived and oversaw the collection. “My father was an architect who studied the work of Palladio, so his teachings have always been part of my life even before I started as creative director at Bottega Veneta. Palladio was an artisan as well as an architect who sought balance and harmony in everything. The Palladian gardens that inspire this ‘Parco Palladiano’ collection represent a perfection on earth and an agricultural utopia”.

Priced at $296 for a 100ml bottle, the whole collection will come in the form of six scents, each with different ingredient or aroma for the region. These include magnolia, cypress leaves, sun-ripened pear, azalea flowers, aromatic herbs (laurel, rosemary, sage), and, the queen of flowers, rose. These scents were developed from two years of testing and concocting various experiences and moments from the gardens. Maier called on three perfumers for this: Michel Almairac and Daniela Andrier, who have already worked with Bottega Veneta, and Alexis Dadier, who works with the brand for the first time.


Bottega Veneta Parco Palladiano

Michel Almairac has been a part of the Bottega Veneta fragrance story from the beginning, creating the debut signature women’s fragrance Bottega Veneta. He has continued his relationship with Bottega Veneta, also developing Eau Legère and Essence Aromatique.

Daniela Andrier has provided the women’s fragrance Knot as well as collaborated on the first men’s fragrances Bottega Veneta Pour Homme and Pour Homme Extrême.

Alexis Dadier is creating his first fragrances for Bottega Veneta with the Parco Palladiano project. “Tomas Maier is very inspiring to work with,” says Alexis, “because he has a very clear story in his mind about the world he wants to create with the fragrance.”

I am fascinated by their work. With the Parco Palladiano collection, they have created fragrances that extend and tell a new story about the Bottega Veneta world.

Thomas Maier



This fragrance evokes the early moment at the beginning of the day, when the sun begins to shine on a garden that is still dew-covered, immaculate. “For this scent, I immersed myself in that marvellous orderly world of the Venetian villas, creating a fragrance just as I experience the gardens,” says perfumer Michel Almairac.

The most noble and refined tree of the gardens is the magnolia, and this fragrance captures not just the flower but the full sensory experience of sitting under the magnolia tree: the woodiness of the bark, the cool shade of the leathery leaves, the strong sweetness of the petals.



“The cypress tree is emblematic of the Venetian landscape, its slender shape a link between Palladian architecture and nature. This scent has all the vitality of spring, very green and fresh,” says Alexis Dadier.

The vertical scent of cypress leaves unfolds with a dual personality: a deep and dark green hand-in-hand with a stimulating bright freshness, further contrasted with the sharpness of pink pepper.



This scent recreates a moment in fall, passing by a pear tree in a garden’s orchard, the pears nearly overripe and ready for harvest, falling from the branches into the green grass.

The warmth of the sun-ripened pear is heightened by an infusion of fresh mint leaves. “It is an imaginary promenade where the seasons overlap like a labyrinth,” says Daniela Andrier, “and memories of gardens in bloom mingle with those of our childhood.”



“In the afternoon, the clouds of azaleas that cover the ground outside a Palladian villa are magical. I wanted to capture the sense of a garden in summer as the scent rises in the sunlight,” says Alexis Dadier.

The colourful azalea flower, rarely used in perfumery, spreads its smooth and solar perfume while an undertone of velvet chestnut brings texture to the fragrance revealing a luxurious landscape.



This fragrance, created by Daniela Andrier, conjures up a walk towards the aromatic herb gardens near a villa. As the sunlight hits the gardens, the tree path provides brief shadow and adds to the scent of this perfect mid-afternoon moment.

Woody, slightly spicy, the aromatic breeze combines the crispness of laurel with sturdy rosemary and soft sage leaves. “My intention was to bring the elegance of these gardens to life, and also their imperfections, to render them even more romantic”, says Andrier



The sixth fragrance, created by Michel Almairac in collaboration with Mylène Alran, centers on a sensual rose that has been in the sun all day long, tasty, spicy, almost ripe.

“The rose is the most elegant of flowers,” says Mylène Alran. “It is the most elegant, the most intense.” The opulent rose bridges the gap between building and nature as it is picked and brought inside the villa for evening, its intensity combining with the warm woodiness of the furnishings.



Bottega Veneta Parco Palladiano

Each bottle of Parco Palladiano reflects the traditions of Bottega Veneta and the Veneto region, with the house’s iconic intrecciato at the heart of the design.

Intrecciato is the instantly recognisable signature of Bottega Veneta, the distinctive leather weave design developed and handcrafted by the house’s artisans. It was by focusing on the intrecciato that Tomas Maier started the revival of the Bottega Veneta, celebrating the extraordinary expertise that remains at its core today.

Bottega Veneta’s motto ‘When your own initials are enough’ expresses a philosophy of individuality and confidence, while reflecting the discreet and sophisticated aesthetic of the intrecciato signature design. Intrecciato shows Italian craftsmanship at its highest level and reveals Bottega Veneta’s understated luxury rooted in the quality of materials and artisanal tradition from the Veneto region.

For the Parco Palladiano collection, intrecciato appears all over the flacon, cap and the packaging. The flacon itself is inspired by classic Venetian glasswork, an aesthetic that defines the Bottega Veneta fragrance house.




The fragrances of Bottega Veneta tell the stories of quintessential Italian experiences. From the first scent, creative director Tomas Maier wanted to bring meaning to fragrance, evoking through scent specific Italian moments, capturing the timeless beauty and heritage of the land.

With each new creation a story begins, conjuring to life a distinct aspect of Italy, from the landscape and environment to the life lived in it. The approach is unique in fragrance, typical of the Bottega Veneta commitment to forging its own path.

We have a natural evolution in everything we do at Bottega Veneta, and with fragrances it comes through the stories that we tell through scent. We started out with women’s fragrance, then we moved to men’s. Now we have Parco Palladiano, and with them all we create a world, one that will always work together.

Thomas Maier

With the release of these scents, Bottega Veneta has done well to honor the region that they’ve been a part of since the brand was founded in 1966. The six bottles in the collection will be sold exclusively in Bottega Veneta boutiques.
