Bottega Veneta will follow up on their 2013 launch of Bottega Veneta pour Homme with a more intense and vibrant version called Bottega Veneta pour Homme Extrême, from January 2015...
If the original was about,
a vision of a rustic respite in the Dolomite mountains. Redolent of pinewood, fir balsam and aged leather,
With the characteristic that,
the distinctive fragrance fuses rugged sensuality and subtle intellect for a fresh and understated scent that lingers in the mind like a memory,
The new one remains faithful to this vision as a "faithful flanker" albeit fashioning it into a more sensual and extreme version of itself. Perfumers Antoine Maisondieu and Daniela Andrier of Givaudan co-created the blend.
Homme Extrême features "amplified" labdanum and pimento notes while the leather was "intensified". The woody aromatic core remains the same. The eau de toilette is now more lasting.
The advertising campaign is fronted by Zak Steiner who was shot by Axel Lindahl,
Centered on Steiner's face, shoulders and neck, the portrait captures a moment unfixed by time or space, reflecting the raw yet sophisticated sensuality of the fragrance.
MSRPs are 65€ & 85€ for 50 ml and 90 ml respectively.
