    Default New Artisan - Bottega Veneta candle

    Artisan Parfumeur has teamed up with Italian leather luxe company Bottega Veneta to release a scented candle. It's lovely - smoky, leathery, hints of flowers and the acid tang of cut grass.

    Notes are listed as Lapsang Souchong tea, "evening rain", iris, freshly cut hay, leather and chimney smoke.

    Real fashion victims can buy a woven leather holder for the candle.

    I believe Olivia Giacobetti (once again) is the nose. I reckon it might even be better than her recent Diptyque-Galliano creation. If her forthcoming leather scent for Frederic Malle is anything like this, it's going to be a belter!

    Thanks Mike!
    Dude that Galliano candle is utterly amazing... I really wish theyĞd make it into a real scent instead of the room one.

    You know, I'm almost glad candles don't get talked about more here at Basenotes, because then I would be bankrupt! :P

    ;D

    Me too. The Bottega V candle is similar but better in my opinion. The good news is that Olivia Giacobetti often covers the same territory (Premier Fig & Philosykos; Passage d'Enfer & Ether d'Iunx) so there is a fair chance that her next perfume for Frederic Malle will reflect her experiments with leather notes for Galliano and Bottega. Or at least I hope so.

    Hi Matt!
    I often wear the Diptyque JG parfum d'ambiance as a personal fragrance and love it...........It works for me!!! Reminds me of entering the foyer at Santa Maria Novella in Florence..............

    Cheers,
    Marlene

    I saw in a magazine that there were 2 different candle holders: one in tan leather and the other in white.
