I always considered perfume as a very personal thing. Not all people love the same scents and for each woman a scent means something different, it brings different memories and images. Based on that as a reader I don't usually read a lot of perfume reviews as I consider that is the more difficult products to review objectively (well there is nothing objective about perfumes). When Coolbrandz and Edelbrandz contacted me to review the new Omnia Crystalline L' Eau de Perfum by Bvlgari I felt a bit torn based on that. On the other hand I fell in love with the bottle the moment I saw the ad (I really believe that I will never get over the rose gold phase) and I was very curious to try it.
Επειδή αυτό το post περιέχει πολλές photos και λίγο κείμενο, αποφάσισα να το αφήσω μόνο στα αγγλικά. Για ότι ερωτήσεις έχετε θα χαρώ να απαντήσω στα σχόλια σας και θα τα πούμε σύντομα με νέο video make up tutorial αλλά και διάφορα posts που σας ετοιμάζω. Πολλά φιλιά!
Inside my very carefully prepared package (as always) there was the 65ml eau de perfum, a small sample to carry it around with me, a travel size body lotion (perfect size for a trip, I am taking this to Denmark for sure) and the cutest tea sachet that although I am not a tea lover I am convinced to try.
In latin Omnis means all, so in plural Omnia means everything...In arabic Omnia means wish... So what Omnia Crystalline means to me?
I had never smelled the EDT version that came out in 2005. For all of you that have, Bvlgari claims that the new eau de perfum is not only a richer, more concentrated version but a completely new approach on the scent. The inspiration behind this is the sparkling crystal, hard as rock but clear as water, for this perfume they play with the balance between solid and liquid states. The infinity bottle I totally love and now it is dressed in rose gold which makes it a true treasure on every boudoir. In general as Greek I am fascinated by all the references in the ancient Greek civilization that Bvlgari uses in their symbolisms.
For the fragrance itself that's what Bvlgari says: " An olfactory symphony created by the award-winner master perfumer Alberto Morillas, who liberally combined precious natural ingredients with a signature Mediterranean soul. With Omnia Crystalline L’Eau de Parfum, Alberto Morillas imagined a Lotus flower dressed to the nines for a special evening".
Top notes: Mandarin and Lotus flower. A delicate and fresh scent that attracts you from the first moment.
Heart notes: Lotus flower, Orris concrete and heliotrope. They give a more rich and luxurious feeling to the perfume.
End notes: White sandalwood, musks and benzoin from Siam. A blend that keeps a balance between creating a deeper long lasting scent while keeping it fresh and smooth.
Το me Omnia Crystalline is a perfect fresh scent for every woman. Not too heavy but still rich enough to accompany you from the office to a special evening.
I can imagine a woman wearing this on a cold winter morning drinking hot coffee while reading magazines, at a cool rock concert partying with friends, at the opera with her partner, at a spring picnic with her girlfriends. All these images, all these women that can be totally different ones but it can also be the same, come into my mind when I smell Omnia Crystalline. This diversity that Omnia Crystalline inspires me, I 've tried to give you with this series of photos.
Why did I love this perfume? It is unique but still discrete. If you are searching for a loud, in your face scent then this is not for you. It is a perfume that I feel it compliments my personality instead of being overpowering. Although I usually prefer sweeter scents I cannot stop wearing this since I got it and I have got a lot of compliments from male and female friends.
I consider this as absolutely cool. The only disadvantage I can find, if I have to find one is that as most fresh and clean scent, although it has a rich heart and base it is not extremely long-lasting and I feel that I want to re apply it if I have a long day and want to continue smelling superb. But this is certainly not a problem as the package is not that huge and I can even carry it with me in my bag.
I want to thank again Coolbrandz for giving me the opportunity to try out this product and review it for you.
