.A few posts ago (here) I mentioned my aversion for variety when it comes to perfumes. This is slowly changing though as I have started to discover one or two new scents that I really like. So imagine my delight when I was recently gifted the new Bvlgari Goldea perfume! Like I promised on Instagram (@shelovesthefinerthings) here are my thoughts...
Origin: Bvlgari only released this perfume in October 2015, so I feel really privileged to have received this! The name Goldea actually means "gold goddess" and the company says that it is a tribute to the golden goddess of beauty and sun.
Packaging: The bottle is very representative of a Gold Goddess draped in luxurious gold fabric. The packaging of perfumes actually counts as something for me because a nice bottle is a great decorative pieces for the vanity table/bedroom. What makes this bottle even nicer is the jewelled stopper, I just want to convert it to a ring or a necklace ornament, somehow, not sure how.
Fragrance: Goldea has a primarily floral/citrusy scent but gives off a heavier musk scent when it dries down. I think Bvlgari hit the right balance of floral with Goldea, some manufacturers tend to go overboard with floral scents.
Longevity: Perfumes with musk in its composition usually last longer because it prevents the fragrance from evaporating quickly. Goldea is no different, it lasts quite a while on my skin, generally about 6 hours.
Where to Buy
Goldea officially launched in Nigeria last week Saturday and from what I know it hasn't even launched in the US yet! That's really awesome, I love how these companies are starting to seriously reckon with Nigeria. You can purchase this perfume at all Essenza and Montaigne Place stores nationwide.
Can you guys kindly recommend some other nice perfumes I can try?
Peace and Love,
