Sophisticated, classy, elegant and refined. It’s not every day that I get to come close to the brand Bvlgari, especially since I can barely afford any of their baubles and trinkets (nor had I been able to pronounce their name, which I now know sounds like “Bool-gari”). Owning or even touching any of these jewels is purely a dream but Bvlgari brings this dream a little closer to home with the newest addition to their fragrance line, the Omnia Crystalline l’Eau de Parfum.
Fronted by top model Edita Vilkeviciute, the fragrance focuses on the soft graciousness of, and the growing tenacity in a woman; a precious, delicate lotus flower blooming with radiance; enticing towards all who set their sights upon it. Feels like stone, yet looks like water.
The loveliest part: rose gold encapsulating the nectar within. There is no cap on the bottle, just the nozzle discreetly settled in the midst of the pump. It’s a pity that the fragrance doesn’t last long in the tropics but one wouldn’t mind spritzing some at midday.
Top notes: mandarin & lotus flower
Middle notes: lotus flower, orris concentrate & heliotrope
Bottom notes (for that lingering scent): white sandalwood, benzoin (from Siam) & musk
The luminous and petal effect of the lotus flower is still at the heart of the creation but it is enriched with new materials – noble, rich and enveloping – like a cashmere scarf.

If you’re a fan of the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Elie Saab’s le Parfum, you might like to give this fragrance a try. It’s sweet and musky without being too overpowering. Perfect for the independent lady who earns her own keep.
