Coty has added Knot Eau Absolue to the Bottega Veneta Knot fragrance range. The eau de parfum is available now in global travel retail.

Knot Eau Absolue follows the 2014 launch of Knot eau de parfum, which was named after Bottega Veneta’s iconic clutch bag. The perfume continues the longstanding collaboration of Creative Director Tomas Maier with Master Perfumer Daniela Andrier.

“A link to the company’s history and to its future”: The Knot Eau Absolue bottle includes a hand-finished cap and oro matte clasp, echoing those of the minaudière clutch

Coty said the new composition “enhances the elegance of the original fragrance with an infusion of notes that add richness and opulence”. The floral oriental fragrance opens with the familiar essences of lavender and orange blossom. A sweetness of jasmine at the heart begins to differentiate Knot Eau Absolue from the original juice, while the base blends myrrh.

The Knot flacon is inspired by Venetian glasswork and the traditional Italian carafe. It combines rounded curves and clean lines that reflect the design of the Knot minaudière. The bottle also includes a hand-finished cap and oro matte clasp. To mirror the warmer evolution of the juice, the Knot Eau Absolue flacon is recast in a dark golden hue.

Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier said: “The knot is very much a symbol of Bottega Veneta, a link to the company’s history and to its future. New bags in the Knot family, such as the Olimpia Knot and the City Knot, were conceived as an evolution from the evening minaudière to bags that work for both day and evening.

“Using this iconic hardware as a closure for Knot eau de parfum and Knot Eau Absolue is another chapter in our story.”
