Bottega Veneta is a fragrance house I have yet to truly become familiar with, as a matter of a fact Bottega Veneta Knot Eau de Parfum is the first scent from the brand I have ever tried. Apparently Bottega Veneta Knot has been inspired not only by the crisp air of the Italian coast line but also freshly washed, air dried linen - a breath of fresh, air in a bottle by any other description. If ever there was the perfect, discrete yet classy fragrance that will suit all occasions (particularly ideal for office environments) it Bottega Veneta Knot Eau de Parfum.
Don't let the somewhat bulky bottle design fool you, this is not a robust nor strong fragrance; before as much as testing the scent, I was convinced that Knot would be an overwhelming, floral explosion. Not at all the case - rather Bottega Veneta Knot Eau de Parfum, is a light, fresh come airy, delicate white fragrance with tinges of green notes. It is difficult not to dream of clear skies and the sea, when wearing this scent and would deem it to be a crowd pleaser as it smells great on most people.
Normally, here is where I weigh in with fragrances that I would deem similar and would suggest that if you like a certain scent to give this a whirl; in the case of Bottega Veneta Knot, I am really struggling to draw comparisons. It doesn't remind me of anything I own nor have experienced - rather it smells extremely clean and is perhaps best described as an obviously white floral.
If you enjoy crisp, white floral scents this is one you need to try out.
