THREE OF THE BEST: BVLGARI SPLENDIDA FRAGRANCES

May 4, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

" A journey to the heart of the three most iconic flowers in the history of perfume"

 

 

Inspired by Hollywood divas of yesteryear, Bvlgari's new fragrance collection, Splendida, aims to reflect the glamourous era of semi-goddesses like Monica Vitti, Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman. 

 

The trio include Bvlgari Splendida Iris D'or EDP, Bvlgari Splendida Rose Rose EDP and Bvlgari Splendida Jasmin Noir EDP, a fresh interpretation on Bvlgari's iconic Bvlgari's pour Femme (launched 1994), Rose Essentielle (2005) and Jasmin Noir (2008). Developed by the esteemed perfumer, Sophie Labbe, where "the idea was to transform the original fragrances that have been in the market for more than 20 years. It was really to keep the identity of these fragrances and magnify their beauty in different ways". The emphasis on the newer versions is to reinforce their intensity thanks to new techniques of extraction for higher concentration. 

 

 

BVLGARI SPLENDIDA IRIS D'OR EDP

 

 

 

 

"Like gold merging from light, Iris absolute is illuminated by precious mimosa, with a subtle association of violet, rose and heliotrope.  A powdery Signature, luxuriously burnished with sandalwood and textured with a noble heart of Vetiver"

- Sophie Labbe`, Master Perfumer

 

 A fragrance that pays tribute to the most iconic and noble flower, the Iris. You'll find fresh, crisp top green notes with Iris at the centre, rounded off with sensual warm base notes of Vetiver, sandalwood and tonka beans. Think elegant, sophisticated and timeless, a scent to wear  every day. 

 

 

BVLGARI SPLENDIDA ROSE ROSE EDP

 

 

 

 

"A perfume that evokes seduction, a luxurious trilogy of roses embodying the most beautiful flower in the world, coloured under the sparkle of an accord of white mulberry, softened by a woody heart of patchouli"

- Sophie Labbe`, Master Perfumer

 

One spritz and you're  transported to a  garden of heavenly blooming roses on a hot summer's day, (and we're not talking granny fuddy duddy wafts of roses, but deep and hearty notes that make for a romantic and sumptuous floral-rose fragrance). Mandarin and blackberry keep it modern and fresh, with a fusion of warm and earthy patchouli Vetiver and Sandalwood notes at its base. 

 

 

BVLGARI SPLENDIDA JASMIN NOIR

 

 

" The exalted floral oxymoron...The purity of the star-shaped flower of Sambac jasmine is glorified by the milkiness of satin almond, brightened by vivid notes of green sap.  Its sensuality is intensified under the mysterious facets of profound and mysterious woods."

- Sophie Labbe`, Master Perfumer

 

 

Described as a floral woody oriental bouquet, I have my heart set on this one! The heady exoticness of gardenia and sweet smelling ultra sensual jasmine, some of my favourite flowers, are in the top notes, with milky almond balancing the heart; woody facets of patchouli, sandalwood and cashmeran keep it grounded. A warm, sensual and enchanting scent which I'll be wearing throughout  winter!
