It is dedicated to women transitioning between stages of their lives

The story of Bvlgari Goldea may have only began in 2015 but each of its chapters—created in the vision of a beautiful goddess—has managed to capture the ever-changing facets of the modern woman. Inspired by the jewellery maker’s Serpenti collection, each bottle from the Goldea collection features the iconic scaglie wrapped around its neck, representing wisdom, rebirth, and vitality.

Goldea, which combines “gold” and “dea”, the Latin word for goddess, is a tribute to the radiance of the sun. For this floral oriental scent, master perfumer Alberto Morillas created a trail of white musks, with top notes of crystal musk with orange blossom, raspberry and bergamot, and golden musk with ylang-ylang and jasmine at its heart. The base notes are an addictive combination of amber musk, golden patchouli, Egyptian papyrus, Cyperus papyrus.

Rose Goldea from 2016 recreates the warmth and sensuality of the original, but comes with a softer touch from the Damask rose, while in 2017, Goldea The Roman Night took on a more seductive allure, with floral notes of tuberose, night-blooming jasmine and peony, and the earthy aroma of vetiver.

This year, Bvlgari writes a new chapter—or more accurately, a prelude—to its Rose Goldea perfume. In the Rose Goldea Blossom Delight, Morillas perfectly captures a story of a young woman on a journey of self-discovery. Infusing the entire olfactive pyramid with roses, the perfumer recreated the complex fragrance of a tender rosebud as it blooms.


“For me, a rose is a powerful elixir of joy and femininity. In this new Rose Goldea Blossom Delight edition, I wanted to capture its full range of natural qualities,” he says of his favourite flower.

“The freshness of rosebuds at sunrise, the vibrant green leaves and the magical flower that slowly opens to relinquish its fabulous fragrance.”

The floral musk scent opens with fresh and vibrant notes from violet leaf, green papaya and jasmine absolute, before revealing heart notes of rose petal infusion, rosebuds, and lily of the valley accord. Then, evoking a rose in full bloom, the fragrance unveils a bouquet of Bulgarian rose absolute, white musk accord, and ambergris accord.

“I imagined a rose in all its facets in order to create a fragrance that is sparkling, sophisticated, modern and appealing for all women who love this flower,” Morillas added.

In contrast to Rose Goldea’s elegant and self-confident woman, the Rose Goldea Blossom Delight muse is optimistic and spontaneous. But this isn’t a girl who is lost—she knows where she wants to be, and she’s embracing the journey towards it.
