I know my smells. I know what smells good and what smells bad, I am a closet “nose.” When I arrived at the mansion on 63rd street for the Bottega Veneta fragrance launch wearing a gorgeous grecian inspired pink jersey Bottega Veneta dress designed by Tomas Maier. I was in visual and olfactory heaven. Did I mention the waiters were beyond gorgeous, hot, tall, tan, and young. It was an honor to support my great friend Tomas Maier, and to wear his dress ( I’m a fiend of his smokin’ hot bikinis).
The face of the campaign is Nine d’Urso, the daughter of French fashion icon Inès de la Fressange and Italian art dealer Luigi d’Urso. The campaign was shot by Bruce Weber in South Florida
The perfume bottle is made of Murano glass (limited edition), decorated with a metal cap and a leather bow. The perfume extract, which comes in the Murano bottle, is available in limited numbers at Bottega Veneta boutiques around the world at the price of $ 395. The fragrance is available as 50 and 70 ml EDP with body cream, body lotion and shower gel for more broad distribution.
I’m so proud of my talented friend, but for Maier its just another day at the office.
