 Fragrance Station

The Bvlgari new perfume , Goldea, is inspired by gold and light. The name means "Gold Godess" (eng. gold + lat. dea). Goldea, which comes out in October 2015, represents the beginning of a new collection, more than 10 years after the last collection Omnia was launched. The juice, developed by perfumer Alberto Morillas, is described as "a bright, golden musk symphony". I was cheered by the news that it was geared towards older women, that is, 30+, which is about as "older" as the fragrance industry is usually willing to go, but perhaps a little dismayed by the name — Goldea? Now taking votes, does anyone like that name? — and the commercial with Isabeli Fontana, which looks like something Guerlain might have done in the 1980s, and is very nearly as corny as the name.The composition is oriental - floral, bold heavy with musk, developed by Alberto Morillas. It begins with notes of crystal musk, orange blossom, raspberry and bergamot. The heart includes golden musk, ylang-ylang and jasmine. The base features accords of velvety musk, amber, patchouli and Egyptian papyrus. ). You can tell pretty quickly that it's not geared towards teenagers: the raspberry did annoy me for a few minutes early on, but Goldea is not heavily fruity, and the floral notes are weightier than the average. So are the musk notes, which while hardly what you'd call animalic, do speak in loud tones, pretty much from the opening straight through to the end. The overall effect is of a warm, golden floral musky amber, with a light dusting of sweetish powder at the finish. On some wearings it struck me as far too sweet for my liking, but on other wearings I hardly noticed, smelling instead interesting little touches of hay-like notes, the slightly briny aspect of the amber (or the musk?), and a bit of greenery here and there.The face of advertisements shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott is model Isabeli Fontana. The fragrance is available in a round gold flacon as 25, 50 and 90 ml Eau de Parfum.
