I am a huge fan of Bvlgari perfumes and only today I noticed that this is my first fragrance review from the brand when I already have more than a couple of Bvlgari perfumes. Will review them all one by one pretty soon. This Bvlgari Rose Essentielle EDT was a gift from my sister who visited me a couple of months back. When I saw the name 'Rose' I was pretty sure that I wouldn't be using it at all as I totally hate the fragrance of Rose/Jasmine in any perfume ! Since it was a gift I didn't want to return it back at the same time didn't have the heart to waste it so I had to try it one day.
I have seen the one with a golden lid, guess it is the EDP ! My sis got me the huge 100 ml bottle and when I sniffed the lid I was sure I am going to hate it but when I sprayed it on my wrist the true fragrance could be felt and I would simply call this fragrance - floral luxury. I don't know why this reminds me so much of Dubai Airport and something good related to that - I instantly fell in love with the fragrance ! What a twist in the story? When I smell rose I could equally smell creaminess and that makes the fragrance so lovable. As time passes the creaminess dominates the floral fragrance. The fragrance is described as "luxurious, sophisticated and seductive". Staying Power and Sillage are 'Good'.
Top Notes - Ottoman Rose, Prelude Rose
Middle Notes - Blackberry, Violet, Jasmine
Base Notes - Sandalwood, Patchouli
- The fragrance is an amazing blend of floral notes and creamy notes.
- The fragrance stays for 5+ hours on me.
- Sillage is very good.
- Very soft and feminine fragrance.
- Fragrance from my favorite brand.
- Can be worn any time of the day !
- The packaging is pretty simple and a bit heavy to be carried around when I travel.
The price of Bvlgari Rose Essentielle EDT is Rs.3500 (approx) for 100 ml.
When I smell this perfume these are the words that pop up in my mind - feminine, luxury, seductive, soft, rich, creamy and delicate. This perfume was an instant love for me and I never thought I would ever love a floral fragrance so much until I tried this one ! I used to run away from floral fragrances and this one did make me change my idea - that is why I love Bvlgari ;) This fragrance found its place in the top 5 of my favorite's list. If you get a chance do try this fragrance.
