Bvlgari Unveils Its Allegra Sandalwood Magnifying Essence

Bvlgari Allegra Sandalwood Magnifying Essence

If you love the creamy, comforting aroma of sandalwood, Bvlgari has a remarkable product that is just for you.

“Sandalwood acts as the backbone of a fragrance,” explains executive Trudi Loren. “It holds all the ingredients together and provides a smooth transition through the notes. It’s one of the most important ingredients in modern perfumery.”


Sandalwood has a deep, creamy sweetness with warm undertones of amber, leather and woody. Australian sandalwood differs slightly from the Indian version with a greener, fresher facet. Perfumers use it in their compositions as a fixative to ensure longevity.

Categorized under the genus Santalum, these slow-growing trees produce a heavy, yellow, fine-grained aromatic wood that can retain its scent for decades. (The fragrant bark from India’s Santalum trees have been used in both Hindu and Buddist religious rituals for thousands of years.) One of the most expensive woods in the world, the sandalwood tree can take more than 15 years to mature before it can be harvested. The older the tree, the more expensive the oil it produces.

“Sandalwood has a warm, relaxing quality which explains its immense popularity.”

A key ingredient in floral-amber fragrances, sandalwood blends beautifully with florals like orange blossom, jasmine, ylang-ylang, magnolia, gardenia and tuberose.

Master perfumer Jacques Cavallier has created a magnifying essence that you can layer over any fragrance in your collection to amplify the sandalwood aroma. It works with all scents and can be worn on its own. Think of it as an enveloping creamy veil of scent. The essence even comes in a charming drawstring bag featuring whimsical illustrations.
