What it is: An exceptionally exquisite scent that offers a more intense take on the iconic leather chypre featured in the first eau de parfum.
Fragrance story: This distinctive interpretation honors the use of the finest natural raw materials synonymous with Bottega Veneta fragrances. Created by master perfumer Michel Almairac in collaboration with Bottega Veneta, the warm and enveloping blend is identifiable by a familiar leathery accord that is emphasized by jasmine sambac absolute and ambroxan for a sensual finish. The addition of ambroxan, a multifaceted ingredient evocative of natural ambergris, brings new depth to the final structure. The notes of this floral leathery chypre combine to deliver an aroma with musky, woody and amber-imbued accords. Amongst Bottega Veneta's fragrances, L'Absolu offers a deeply feminine essence that is truly special. With an ombré rosewood hue, L'Absolu's flacon presents a slightly more elaborate take on the classic Venetian glass-inspired design behind the brand's signature fragrances. The deeper color at the top represents the intensity of the scent's composition, while the lighter, more luminous color at the base allows the house's iconic intrecciato pattern to shine brightly. The gold-hued butterfly seal is suspended from a rose-colored leather band around the neck of the bottle.
