Review | BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de parfum

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

To me, perfume is like my coat, my handbag or my keys: I can’t leave the house without it. So the last step in my morning routine is always spraying on a little perfume. Pshhht, a spritz in the back of my neck. Pshhht, a spritz in the front. And pshhht, a little cloud of perfume in front of me so I can walk through it all diva-like. The last few weeks I have been alternating mainly two fragrances – Fendi L’Acquarossa and DKNY Women Fall – but recently a third one entered the rotation: the new BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de parfum. Time to have a little sniff together. Pshhht! *diva strut*

The new BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de parfum is the richer, more luxurious version of the original BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de toilette. It’s a romantic überfeminine fragrance that opens with lotus and mandarin, followed by iris root and vanilla and ending with the smell of sandalwood, benzoin and musk.

The BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de parfum is a warm and complex fragrance that is at the same time floral, powdery and woody. That may sound a little overwhelming, but it really isn’t. The smell is very delicate and soft, and it’s very well balanced. Last year I had my fragrance profile analyzed at In Fine in Antwerp, and the results showed that powdery perfumes are the way to go for me. Yeah, powdery personalities for the win! When I tried the BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de parfum for the first time I immediately noticed the powderiness of the scent, and maybe that’s why I like it so much.

And I also like the bottle a lot. The pretty rose gold color and the original shape of the bottle are quite special. That, and also a total pain in the butt to photograph: it took me 72 shots to finally take a decent picture.  Every shot either showed my reflection or didn’t do justice to the beauty of the bottle. But after 72 clicks I finally got the hang of it and managed to get some nice shots.

The BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de parfum definitely lingers. I don’t know if it’s me, my nose or something else, but 80% of perfumes seem to fade on me within the hour. I could spray myself with half a bottle of perfume, but 8 out of 10 times I still wouldn’t smell much. So either there is something seriously wrong with my sense of smell, or there are only certain types of perfumes that last on me. Whatever it is, the BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline eau de parfum really lingers, and when I undress for bed at night I can still smell the same delicate sensuality that I smelled in the morning right after that first spritz. Two thumbs up!

    I want to try it :)


  4. Ohhh deze moet ik echt ruiken!

  5. De flacon is echt prachtig!

  6. Hmm, ik denk niet of dit parfum iets voor mij is. Mandarijn ruik ik wel graag, maar dan die muskus- en vanillegeur en dat poederige…

  7. hahaha die kat, geniaal :D en het is echt een mooi flesje!

  8. I haven’t smelled it yet but I’ll check it out cos I’m curious. In the past I just loved fresh and light perfumes but nowadays all sorts of scents.

  9. Wat een ontzettend mooi flesje! Klinkt verder ook heel goed!

  10. Yummie, klinkt lekker! De flacon is inderdaad heeeel pretty! :D

  11. Klinkt erg goed, ben erg benieuwd naar de geur. De flacon is echt heel mooi!

  12. Hahhaha! Love the way u describe your morning perfume routine!! Totally feel you when it comes to photo taking of something that is really reflective. Tempted to trynthe perfume. Perhaps I will head down to store one day and see if its available in my country!

  13. Ziet er mooi uit, wat een bijzonder flesje!

  14. De verpakking vind ik zeker al heel leuk :)

  15. Ahhh that kitty :) I have sniffed a couple of BVLGARI perfumes, but not yet this one. I like the idea of having my scent preferences analyzed though. I might have to look into that!

    • You might! At first I actually thought it was a bit of mumbo jumbo, to be honest, but I did it together with my mom and we were both surprised by how accurate the outcome was! It wasn’t just a perfume analysis, but also a bit of a personality analysis.

  16. I’ve always like BVGARI perfumes. I have the Green Tea one and dying to try the Mon Jasmin Noir. Will add this one to the list:)

  17. Dat geurtje klinkt veel belovend :) & die kat is zalig hihi!

  18. “Diva strut”, I like that! I actually apply perfume like that, too.

  19. If only the Internet could have a scent function!

  24. This sounds very promising and I have to say that I love the bottle. It’s so… different! :)

  25. omg looove the packaging. I am a totally packaging freak when it comes to these things. I like that it’lll make a really pretty dresser adornment. thanks for sharing your review! will give it a smell xx. gigi.

  26. Ahahaha, that kitten is adorable. Sometimes I just feel like that when I spritz something delightful. All smiley :D

  27. Oehh die lijkt me erg lekker. Had er al viavia iets over gehoord. Het design van het flesje mag er ook wezen!

  28. Sounds like a great scent! Cool that you got your fragrance preferences analyzed. I’d love to do that some time!

  29. Klinkt goed! Ik vind de flacon ook mooi!

  30. wow! it looks great! :)

  31. I tend to stick to my favorite perfume – Miss Dior Chérie – but it’s always nice to find out new smells!

  32. I like this parfum! I love the smell! And the bottle is so pretty! Lovely and sweety cat! hehe

  33. haha:D the photo with the cat is so cute!♥ Lovely review!♥ I must definitely this this perfume the next time I’m in Sephora!

  34. Klinkt mij als muziek in de oren! Poederige parfums (of hoe vertaal je dit..) daar houd ik ook van Amazing Grace van Philosophy is ook zo’n geur waar ik verliefd op ben, maar die helaas niet heel sterk is.. ik ben benieuwd naar deze geur. En de vormgeving… die is echt geweldig. Kan me voorstellen dat je lang bezig was om die ene goede foto ervan te nemen ;-)

  35. It is a lovely perfume indeed and your review really great :)

  36. Hahahahaha, wat een toffe kat *smelt*. Love de verpakking van het parfum trouwens!

  37. Really like the sound of this! Vanille, lotus en sandelwood-heel vrouwelijk en lief. Jah glanzende oppervlakken zien er erg mooi uit, maar om te fotograferen zijn ze een B*.

  38. Klinkt goed, moet ik eens testen in de winkel :)

  39. Klinkt als hele lekkere parfum! Ik vind de flacon er ook heel mooi uitzien, maar inderdaad wel heel erg moeilijk om op de foto te zetten zetten zonder dat je jezelf erin ziet.

  40. What a cute kitty, ha-ha! Well…I haven’t been “analyzed”, but I know I am a “powdery” perfume personality. Going to go and check this baby out for sure!

  41. I agree. I don’t like to leave the house without perfume either. This one looks so pretty. I love the bottle, I often choose perfume based on the bottle. That’s the sweetest kitty cat picture too.

  42. mhh..I like the packaging!

  43. Heb hem ook, dat flesje is zo leuk!

  44. Heb deze ook maar nog niet geopend want gisteren ontvangen. Ben benieuwd!

  45. i really LOVE the cat’s pic !!! so adorable !!!

  46. I’ve heard good things about Bvlgari perfumes but I’ve never tried them myself.

  47. I’ve never tried Bvlgari but I think it might be a bit heavy 4 me.

  48. Haha, that cat picture is hilarious! Makes me smile so much! :)
    Thanks for visiting my blog! Can’t wait to check out yours!
