Make this Christmas one to remember with a personalised fragrance from Bulgari's Allegra collection

With Christmas right around the corner, there's no better way to get into the festive spirit than picking out presents for family and friends. After all, nothing beats seeing the joy on their faces as they unwrap their gifts come Christmas morning. No matter how experienced you are at gifting, however, it can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to picking out the perfect present.

Of the vast array of possible gift options, there are few more intimate than perfume. Like windows to the soul, each unique scent offers a glimpse into the story of its wearer—that's what makes Bulgari’s Allegra collection the perfect gift for your nearest and dearest.

Reminiscent of sparkling glass baubles on a Christmas tree, the candy-coloured hues of the Allegra collection bring to mind memories of the holiday season. Available in five scents, the collection—comprising Fiori D'Amore, Riva Solare, Dolce Estasi, Rock'N'Rome and Fantasia Veneta—is made customisable with five specially selected Magnifying essences, ensuring that there’s a fragrance to suit any taste.

For the Lover: Fiori D’Amore

For the hopeless romantics among us, there's no symbol of love more enduring than a bouquet of red roses. For that special someone, Fiori D’Amore—or Flowers of Love—expresses the unsaid with a single spritz. This timeless fragrance, crafted from the finest Turkish and Bulgarian roses, is lifted with a new, modern accord, Prelude Raspberry, which conjures up the scent of red berries harvested at the height of summer.

For the Dreamer: Dolce Estasi

With a precious pink and green bottle that recalls Italy’s famous spumoni dessert, Dolce Estasi brings to mind family gatherings spent ensconced in the warmth of childhood and the scents of homemade sweets. Centring on a heliotrope accord and a powdery floral with the irresistible creaminess of a dessert, this scent is enhanced by a zest of Italian citrus and a final musk accord.

For the Confidante: Rock‘N’Rome

With a beautifully crafted flacon in colours reminiscent of a Roman sunset, Rock‘N’Rome calls to mind evenings spent with your closest confidantes, of memories shared and memories made. Like a fruity, floral cocktail, this fragrance contains effervescent notes of osmanthus and apricot, which taper off into a sweet benzoin gum.

For the Adventurer: Riva Solare

Nothing calls to mind the holiday season more than the prospect of travel. For the one in your life filled with wanderlust, gift them a little piece of Italy in a bottle that they can carry wherever they may go. A sparkling citrus fragrance with splashes of tart Calabrian bergamot and neroli, as well as accents of luminous osmanthus and mandarin, Riva Solare evokes the sun-kissed shores of the Italian riviera.   

For the Party-goer: Fantasia Veneta

The festive season is a time for celebration, for good food and gathering with friends and family. This Christmas, gift the social butterfly in your life the finishing touch to any ensemble in the form of a signature scent. An unforgettable chypre fragrance, Fantasia Veneta spotlights nuanced notes of Indonesian patchouli, while delivering a surprising twist in the form of a decadent red peach accord and a hint of addictive vanilla.
