cello's Review of Bottega Veneta by Bottega Veneta

Smooth is the word that comes foremost to my mind regarding this floral suede fragrance. Each element and phase easily transitions and blends into the next, and the final product is a lovely, albeit close wearing, experience.

Apricot scented suede with creamy jasmine is the predominate smell, but running through the composition is a plum note. This is one element that I found slightly distracting, although it does nothing to change my opinion of the fragrance. The drydown uses dusty patchouli in a similar fashion as Chanel's 31 rue Cambon to elicit the chypre effect, although I slightly prefer the Chanel rendition of this new world chypre drydown.

All in all, a beautiful effort and fragrance that should please many. It certainly did me!
