The Palladian villas and gardens of Italy’s Veneto region have been an endless source of inspiration since they were designed in the 16th century. The beautiful area is home to some of the world’s leading artisans and craftsmen, and is the inspiration behind Bottega Veneta’s new Parco Palladiano collection of fragrances. The range offers six new scents, all designed to capture different moments and experiences in a Palladian garden.
Parco Palladiano I
Designed to evoke the breaking of dawn and the sensory experience of sitting under a magnolia tree, the perfume captures the woodiness of the bark, the cool shade of the leaves and the strong sweet smell of the flowers.
Parco Palladiano II
The cypress tree is emblematic of the Venetian landscape and is the inspiration behind many of the architectural buildings in the area. This fresh fragrance captures the essence of the cypress tree and has notes of pink pepper.
Parco Palladiano III
Pears are the inspiration behind Parco Palladiano III. Infused with mint and grass, the fragrance is designed to evoke the merging of seasons and the smell of a sun-riped pear.
Parco Palladiano IV
For the fourth fragrance in the collection, perfumer Alexis Dadier took inspiration from a garden in summer, as the scent rises with the heat of the sun. Made with azalea flowers with an undertone of woody chestnut, the fragrance is soft and floral.
Parco Palladiano V
Conjuring up a walk through an aromatic herb garden, this fragrance combines woody, slightly spicy notes with rosemary and soft sage.
Parco Palladiano VI
The sixth fragrance centres on a rose that has been in the sun all day. Both sweet and spicy, the scent combines the warmth of the flower with a soft woodiness.
