Bulgari Rose Goldea: From Egypt, With Love
The Italian brand Bulgari draws inspiration from another reptilian lover, Cleopatra for the Rose Goldea fragrance.
They may be known for their love of serpents — hence the Serpenti collection — but that has not stopped Bulgari from delving into the aromatic world of fragrances. With Egypt’s famous Cleopatra as a source of inspiration, the luxury brand brings us the Rose Goldea. To be precise, Bulgari drew from Cleopatra’s love life, to produce a fragrance that is feminine and sensual. If the tales of the Egyptian Queen’s love for snakes is true (and suicide by snakebite) then this pairing is one that was meant to be.
With the help of master perfumer Alberto Morillas, the Italian brand has created a fragrance that not only brings to mind the love rituals of Egyptian women but also fabled passion of ancient times. Having helped create several iconic fragrances such as Calvin Klein’s CK One and Lancôme’s Miracle, you can be rest assured that this creation is one that was created by a knowledgable nose.
Moral las explained his creative process: “The creation of Rose Goldea was an extraordinary adventure because we wanted to interpret the emotional dimension of a delicate flower: the highly prestigious Damas rose. The fraction that I used does not have the same scent as a classic rose: with this new fragrance, I wanted to illustrate the flower’s true natural freshness, youth and luminosity with the most translucent notes of musk.”
The fragrance reportedly opens with sparkling top notes of rose petal extract, pomegranate heart and musk, combined with Damas rose and jasmine grandiflorum. The base consists of notes of sensual musks, creamy sandalwood and incense. In a gold and pink bottle, the shiny surface is a nod to the Serpenti design by Bulgari.
