Renzo Zengiaro and Michele Taddeo established Bottega Veneta in 1966. It entered the fashion industry as an understated establishment, offering artisanal leather goods with distinctive weaving designs. It slowly built its name and became famous because of its commitment to combining traditional ways and innovations to create luxurious products.
To further expand their collection, Tomas Maier, the creative director of Bottega Veneta, released the first perfume in 2011. It offered a distinct scent of elegant summer vibes. The first Bottega Veneta perfume was a huge success. From there, the Italian luxury fashion house continued to release fragrances for men and women.
Bottega Veneta’s perfumes are known for their leathery floral chypre scents that awaken the suppleness of the brand’s leather items. But, aside from this, it also tickles the sensuality due to the fresh meadows, mown hay, and earthy, flowery, and Venetian countryside scents.
