There aren’t many fragrances launched within the last five years or so that I really like all that much, sadly. However, after recently sampling Bottega Veneta, Knot (Bottega Veneta 2014) I’ve discovered a huge exception.
Knot is uplifting, clean, pretty and modern with a sort of airy orange-kissed vibrancy. It reminds me of a contemporary version of Acqua Di Parma, Colonia with reviews of both fragrances often citing a certain Italian, sunny beauty.
The sillage is modest but nice and longevity is decent. The drydown is slightly sweet and quite luminous. Again, it’s a very gregarious scent with an ability to almost bring cheer to its wearer.
Today I’m hoping to finally finish the remainder of our Christmas cards. Yesterday I had the semi-thrill of dying several items green… There was an oldish Lily Pulitzer strapless dress and a scarf. Both items were white as white can be, so the green is very vibrant and I’m actually kind of excited… I feel like I invented a new dress (sort of) and the scarf is now wearable (white has never been particularly flattering next to my face)… I also think that seeing something colorful and bright was a psychological boost.
Have a restful Sunday, my dear readers. 🙂
