Bottega Veneta Eau Légère Smells Like Licorice And A Celine Dion Song

Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re testing out Bottega Veneta Eau Légère.

Fragrance: Bottega Veneta Eau Légère

What Bottega Veneta thinks it smells like: “A transparent floral chypre fragrance gentled by notes of bergamote and pink pepper. Inexplicable and unforgettable.”

What we think it smells like:

  • “Licorice mixed with leafy smells.”
  • “The physical manifestation of a Celine Dion song.”
  • “The cleaning supplies aisle at a bourgeois grocery store.”
  • “My grandfather and his sweater chest.”
  • “Floral Pier 1.”
  • “My crazy Aunt.”
  • “It just smells, like, nice. It’s not unpleasant”
  • “Flowers and talcum powder.”
  • “Overly strong flowers.”
  • “The shower after a bunch of people have used different shampoos.”
  • “The inside of a box of potpourri.”
  • “Floral-ish.”
  • “Plastic fruit.”
  • “A department store dressing room.”
  • “Lemon Pine Sol.”
  • “I know intellectually that it’s for women but I also think it could be for men.”
