Bottega Veneta’s New Perfumes Actually Smell Like an Italian Garden

It took three perfumers and more than two years to develop the six-scent Parco Palladiano collection.

Fragrance and place tend to go hand in hand. More visceral than sight, more tangible than touch, a scent can transport you instantly to another location, whether it’s the pine trees and wood smoke of a Texas campground or the citrus groves of Calabria. For their new fragrance collection, Bottega Veneta focused on one place, but interpreted that spot half a dozen different ways. The end result—Parco Palladiano—is a collection of six unisex fragrances that take you through the Palladian villas of the Veneto region of Italy, where the legendary fashion house is based.

The Parco Palladiano collection was developed by three perfumers over the course of more than two years, and all three worked closely with Bottega Veneta’s creative director, Tomas Maier, who wanted each scent to capture a different moment in a Palladian garden, which are known for their diverse greenery and villas built by architect Andrea Palladio that give them their name.  Read more at Condé Naste Traveler…
