Bvlgari Rose Goldea Blossom Delight Re-imagined
If you’ve ever wondered if fragrance houses read comments on social media posts and seriously consider emails from loyal customers, we can tell you the answer is definitely ‘yes’. Take the new Bvlgari Rose Goldea Blossom Delight for example. This bright floral from the famed Roman jeweler launched in 2019 as an eau de parfum concentration. Master perfumer Alberto Morillas skillfully blended notes of papaya, violet leaf, jasmine, rose, rose leaf (a hint of green) lily-of-the-valley, Bulgarian Rose, white musk and amber. Think of it as an elegant Italian floral scent for her with the rose and lily-of-the-valley notes taking centre stage. Not surprisingly, it quickly gained a loyal following around the world.
What’s interesting is that fans of the original scent asked for a fresher, lighter version that would work well in warmer summer months. Eau de toilettes traditionally contain about 5% less of essential oils making them lighter and easier to wear in hot summer temperatures. Bvlgari executives listened and quickly recruited Mr. Morillas to compose and EDT interpretation of Rose Goldea Blossom Delight. He was careful to maintain the floral appeal of the EDP but added a luminous, optimistic facet using near-blooming rose buds.
This light floral rose scent for her was actually inspired by the freshness of rosebuds handpicked at sunrise. When the first rays of the morning sun hit the rosebuds, dewdrops give the rosebuds a fresh facet this is remarkably beautiful. This special note is blended with lily of the valley accord, uplifting grapefruit essence and peony creating a bouquet of spring flowers. White musk accord and cedarwood essence provide a smooth and elegant dry down.
Ingredients: lily of the valley accord, grapefruit essence, peony accord, rosebud, white musk accord, cedarwood essence
You’ll notice this fragrance composition adds grapefruit essence which adds an uplifting citrus kick. The aroma is extracted from the grapefruit peel using a cold press method. The result is a sparkling citrus scent and instantly makes you smile.
So how do you tell the EDT from the EDP bottle? The new lighter, fresher version boasts a white ring around the neck of the bottle.
