Notes from Abroad
Can you bottle up a beloved destingation? Take a trip to the far-flung locales that inspired these superb scents. Venetian Countryside - A blend of pink peppercorns, oakmoss, and bergamot captures the spirit of the leathermaker's home base outside of Venice .Bottage Veneta Eau de Parfum, $98. ... De la Renta isn't the only perfumer bottling up his beloved olfactory environment. Bottega Veneta designer Tomas Maier drew inspiration from the Italian leather house's original workshop in the countryside outside Venice -- earthy patchouli and oakmoss with subtle leathery notes, pink peppercorn, and bergamot -- for the brand's eponymous debut scent.

Italian Lessons
Bottega Veneta is know for simple, luxurious clothing -- and especially for its wildly expensive woven-leather bags. For the house's first fragrance, a warm, leathery blend of bergamot, patchouli, and pink peppercorns, creative director Tomas Maier set out to bottle all these qualities. - You've said that the inspiration for the scent was a house in Italy. Does it actually exist? "No, it's an idea I wanted to give to the perfumer. I didn't want to lean on an existing fragrance. So I came up with the image of this old house in the countryside, with walls covered in bookshelves and leather-bound books and open windows, with trees and earth and fresh-cut hay." Describe the scent. "It's kind of obsessive. And hopefully memorable. Because there is nothing I like more than that. I think scent recalls someone else, a situation or place, and that's what's magical about it." What scents in everyday life do you love? "The sea and the salt in the air. I like the smell of fresh-cut grass. I do like the smell of horse stable, too, between the sweat and everything -- I grew up riding." Why do you think women wear fragrance? "I think you buy a fragrance for yourself, but you actually wear it for someone else." Should a woman have a signature scent or a wardrobe of scents? "I like when a woman has a scent and sticks to it."

Tomas Maier - The King of Everlasting Style. A decade ago, Tomas Maier brought his brand of logoless chic to BOTTEGA VENETA. Now his designs are on everyone's shopping list. he sits at the glossy white desk in his white-walled, impeccably sparse studio in New York City's historic Fuller Building--a silent oasis hovering above the bustle of 57th Street. In his chicly rumpled button-down and khaki pants, discussing the work of artists Gerhard Richter and Robert Longo, he seems the epitome of the stoic German aesthete that he has gained a reputation to be. A veteran of Hermes, Sonia Rykiel, and Revillon before being appointed creative director of Bottega Veneta 10 years ago, Maier has a brand of quiet determination that has since boasted the house's sales by about 1,400 percent.... In a wold dominated by wunderkind designers who are increasingly on a first-name basis with their public and are expected to live out the dream they sell, 54-year-old Maier is a rarity. He has no interest in creating his own cult of personality, preferring to promote the work, which he insists on calling "a collaboration" with the house's artisans. Maier wouldn't dream of stripping for a self-portrait to sell Bottega's first fragrance, which launced this September and smells like the inside of a brand-new Bottega bag that's held a bouquet of crushed jasmine. "My priority was to create a scent that makes a statement and that will last in time, Maier says. "What I don't like is the quick in and out. You know, there's stuff that's created just to have a very short life span. But this is not the case here. All our products are always created with the idea in mind of a certain life span, given the fact that everthing is so pricey." Fittingly, the model for the perfume campaign is Nine d'Urso, 17, who only a select group of customers will recognize as the older daughter of Inès de la Fressange. "I wanted to have a face that is not attached to anything," he says of his as-yet-unknown star.... "Perhaps what struck me most about Tomas is his simplicity," says Francios-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of PPR, which became the parent company of Bottega Veneta in 2001 and shortly thereafter hired Maier. "We met at a time when craved to be noticed by any means and at any cost. His discretion was highly unusual. From the beginning, I was convinced that Tomas's exceptional personality would be a perfect fit with Bottega Veneta's core aesthetic values." Indeed, when Maier arrived at the brand in June of 2001--at the suggestion of then---Gucci designer Tom Ford--the house had strayed far from the understated message of its 1970s slogan: "When your own initials are enough." Punked-out girls in hot-pink leopard print and oversize prints screaming BOTTEGA VENETA in huge letters had been stalking down the catwalk to Prince's "Irresistible Bitch." The signature Bottega basket weave had swollen to grotesque proportions on scarves, bustiers, and jackets. Maier stripped everything back, harnessing the brand to its heritage of quiet luxury. ...[Maier] pointing to his four cornerstones, a set of criteria he created to govern all his designs: highest-quality materials, extraordinary craftsmanship, contemporary functionality, and timeless design.
(Lipsky-Karasz, Elisa. "Designer Profile: Tomas Meier (Bottega Veneta)." Harper's Bazaar Oct. 2011: 147-153.)

Scent & Style - At Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier has been toying with the masculine/feminine scent divide, as well, and for his first foray into fragrance, he looked no further than the supple notes of leather, a house staple. "I like introducing the idea of leather into a woman's scent because it has a slight ambiguity to it," he says. It has layers of spicy femininity, too, with notes of Italian bergamot, Indian jasmin, and pink peppercorns. The Venetian glass-inspired bottle, cinched at the neck with a flesh-toned leather ribbon, is indeed beautiful, but the best part will likely be noticed only by the woman who holds it in her hand: Bottega's signature woven "intrecciato" discreetly etched in frosted glass on the bottom, "Private luxury," nods Maier. And for his muse, Maier picked an unknown -- though not for long: Nine d'Urso, the bewitching daughter of French fashion icon Ines de la Fressange, and the street-style subject of her mother's new book, Parisian Chic (Flammarion). "I was looking for somebody fresh and new. I love what she looks like," Maier says simply. -- The Old/New Guard: Nine d'Urso, Tomas Maier's muse for Bottega Veneta's first fragrance.
