BVLGARI Pour Femme

BVLGARI Pour Femme

I had all but forgotten about this bottle and had my mind set on something else when I reached for Bvlgari Pour Femme instead.

Sephora explains on their website that Bvlgari Pour Femme was introduced in 1994, Bvlgari successfully interprets the intensity and the refinement of a sensual and precious world into scents, the same world shared by this leading jeweler. The delicate tonality of the precious liquid transpires from the essential design of the frosted glass bottle. With its full and round notes, Bvlgari was created, as Paolo Bvlgari said, "as a tribute to women, as an answer to their desire to rediscover luxury and find it renewed and different, characterized by understatement and absolute quality."

The notes in this fragrance are:

Top: Bergamot, Violet, Peach, Raspberry
Middle: Rose, Lily of the Valley, Jasmine, Heliotrope
Base: Cedar, Sandal, Musk, Amber

As soon as I spray it, the most evident note is the jasmine which is much bolder than the other notes but it soon blends with the others. While there are fruity top notes, they are masked my the jasmine to my nose. The entire fragrance is more of a jasmine heavy floral bouquet to me than anything else as the bottom notes take hours to appear on me.

This fragrance is best worn in warmer weather as an all day fragrance. I think the beauty of the light bouquet is lost in cooler temperatures. I'm glad that I reached for this one today, it's renewed my love for this fragrance. I don't think I gave it enough credit before but today it smelled incredibly beautiful!

It retails for $125/3.4 oz at Sephora but can be found online or through Ebay for much less.

Ooh, what a coincidence. I haven't put that one on in over a year, and I just wore it again today. Lovely, isn't it? I usually hate anything with mimosa in it, but I'm a big jasmine fan, so the love wins out in the end.
