Room fragrances can be hit-or-miss: A Glade plug-in can instantly make your bedroom reek like a taxicab, but often a scented candle is undetectable. Bottega Veneta’s new home sprays are subtle—yet fragrant—and leave rooms with very distinct aromas. Each of the four scents in the collection, a collaboration with the French fragrance house L’Artisan Parfumeur, was created to evoke a particular moment (the library of an ancient Venetian villa or a morning in Capri just before summer begins). Our favorite is Intreccio No. 4, which is woody and spicy with just a touch of sweetness. It has hints of cinnamon and caramel (reminiscent of a perfect winter evening) and will make any room feel cozy and warm.
