Bottega Veneta 'Knot Eau Florale': Fragrance Review

Bottega Veneta's discreet approach to luxury has been a constant credo for the brand whose creative director, Tomas Maier, is the master of understatement: "I like the idea of less being more", says Maier. There is a beautiful overall coherence that he imprints to everything Bottega Veneta, a brand that has become a luxury powerhouse thanks to Maier's creative vision and that credo is the very essence of Bottega Veneta.

Knot Eau Florale, the new fragrance for women launched by Bottega Veneta in partnership with Coty Prestige, is another expression of the brand's manifesto of understated elegance. Knot Eau Florale joins the Knot fragrance line and follows the magnificent Knot Eau de Parfum that was launched in 2014.

Housed in the same beautifully-shaped bottle (that I personally chose as the best fragrance packaging of 2014), only this time it is a frosted striated bottle, the scent is a continuation of Knot Eau de Parfum with more emphasis on the floral notes of rose and peony.

While the original Knot was centered around orange blossom, Knot Eau Florale brings to the forefront the delicate floral notes of rose and peony which you can quickly smell right after applying the fragrance. Mandarin, neroli and lavender also join the composition and everything is beautifully seated on a sensual, plush base of musk, tonka and cedarwood. Knot Eau Florale will send you dreaming of the Italian Riviera with sunlit gardens of roses and peonies. It is a soft, refined fragrance that will take you from day to night, from cocktail hour to an evening event, thus being very versatile: you can wear Knot Eau Florale on many occassions and you will smell classy and sophisticated, clean and elegant, delicate and feminine, almost ethereal.

Just like any and all Bottega Veneta fragrances, Knot Eau Florale has found a very quick way to my heart. Creative Director Tomas Maier and the great perfumer that is Daniela Andrier have succeeded once again in taking the very essence of the Bottega Veneta brand and turn it into a charming scent. My regular readers already know that I absolutely adore Bottega Veneta fragrances: they exude effortless elegance; they are luxurious, very refined and made with high quality ingredients. Their timeless beauty will never go out of style. I always look forward to the next Bottega Veneta journey into the world of fragrance because I know that wherever it may take us, it is going to be a wonderful experience.

Knot Eau Florale is a beautiful addition to the Knot range and I highly recommend it. You can find it in stores now, in bottles of 50 ml and 75 ml Eau de Parfum. For more visit Bottega Veneta, Coty, and read my previous article.
