Without the bitter, the sweet is not so sweet!
My thoughts have been circling around Bottega Veneta edP all day. I have to get rid of it and it doesn't fit into the few lines of a statement.
I already met Bottega Veneta once in winter. But only on the fragrance strip. I thought to myself: definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but still high recognition value - but for me personally much too harsh, too woody, too earthy. Not that I wouldn't like that, but Chypre fragrances and I are simply an unsuitable team. The scent on my skin is too pungent after years of trial and error. And bye-bye test strip that had already wrapped my bag in a cloud of scent that almost gave me a headache (but this was probably due to the test cocktail with various potentials for the winter that I had thrown in there).
Now I'm looking again. Something for autumn with recognition value. Please don't give me any "I'll be sweet and pungent on your skin again" - part 25.
Yesterday I decided to give BV a second chance. Why? BV, who was really a bit too leathery on the test strip for me, could it possibly turn out differently on my skin? It was worth a try.
Sprayed on and wait.
I'm familiar with the bergamot. It always works! Oakmoss and leather are new to my skin. But I like their interaction. It's skillful - rounded off by patchouli, but that doesn't take the lead at all. Some smell the plum dominantly, which - I must confess - I didn't notice even after hours. Which is just as well, otherwise BV might turn out to be too sweet on my skin Then, more and more mixed with my personal scent, a pleasant fragrance, which does not smell as leathery as on paper. A feel-good scent! I feel dressed, even dressed. In good hands. Top styled, even without make-up and with disheveled hair.
You rock Bottega, you make your wearer an inspiring woman.
So today my decision has been made: Veneta - you are welcome - you will move in with me. You cool, you untouchable, you signature-potent, now-you're in for a long time! For all who want to be classy without wearing high heels, for over 30s women who celebrate androgyny without maybe being it, for all who give something on self-confidence through fragrance embodiment.
Thanks for your impressive talent Veneta...
