MILAN — Three years after their first foray into perfume, Bottega Veneta and Coty Global Markets are launching the Italian fashion brand’s second women’s eau de parfum. Called Knot, the scent is a breezy, floral departure from its leathery, chypre predecessor, and Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier emphasized its long-term importance in the firm’s fragrance portfolio.
“This is part of our journey of scent.…Behind each fragrance, there is a precise idea,” he said, noting that for the new edp, inspiration came from an imaginary house on the Italian coast, with the smell of flowers and fresh laundry wafting through an open window. “What I’m working on is creating a world,” Maier added, emphasizing that each fragrance was an equally important, and timeless, piece in a larger scheme.
