FLOWER POWER: On hot and muggy days, New York City’s homegrown scents are hardly anything to write home about it. This Tuesday, however, Bottega Veneta came to the rescue with a party to celebrate its first fragrance at The Academy Mansion. Raul Avila dressed the mansion’s courtyard with lush flowers, plants, trees and vines, which served to complement spritzes of the new perfume. It found quite a few fans that night. “I want my bed to smell like it,” actress Jessica Chastain said. “I would have the most amazing dreams wrapped in sheets that smell like this.” She joined a group of socials dressed in designs by Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier, including Coco Brandolini d’Adda, Lauren Remington Platt, Kyle Hardin DeWoody and Hannah Bronfman. Cornelia Guest, Simon Doonan, Marina Rust Connor and Beth Rudin DeWoody also made it to the summer soiree. “It’s like being in the countryside,” Maier offered.
