The enchanting sight of the Eternal City at midnight serves as the inspiration for Goldea, The Roman Night, the latest addition to Bulgari’s Goldea Collection. Created for the nocturnal, seductive Roman goddess, Goldea, The Roman Night is a powerfully intense chypre floral musk scent that shines with the brilliance of the original Goldea fragrance. Embodying the queen of the night, Bella Hadid represents the ideal Goldea, The Roman Night muse, capturing glamour itself in her supermodel gaze. Exalting gold in all its forms, Bulgari forges a fragrant preciousness in each Goldea creation to complement a different facet of the contemporary woman. Dea is the Latin word for ‘goddesses’, symbolizing the name of the collection but also the passions of the Roman perfumer-jeweller. Reflecting the inimitable light of Rome, Goldea the Roman Night captures the nocturnal shine of Rome’s stars and the grandeur of the Eternal City at night. The tale of the Goldea, the Roman Night goddess is a story told within the creation of its seductive, powerful fragrance. Created by Master Perfumer, Alberto Morillas, Goldea, The Roman Night is a chypre floral musk fragrance that embodies joy in its purest form, unbridled and dazzling, and bursting with a seductive, ultra-sensual core. Master Perfumer Alberto Morillas reinvents chypre – one of the most iconic signatures in perfumery – by infusing it with his own variety of audacity. Starting with the essential ingredients of its specific character, he crafts it into a modern, ultra-elegant fragrance. Bulgari is proud to introduce this new chypre floral musk, as it opens onto a whole new realm for a woman’s olfactory universe. “This jewel of mesmerizing black musk,” he explains, “is set with luscious mulberry, enhanced by captivating woody notes, and illuminated by the magnetism of jasmine and tuberose.”
Bergamot, rose and oak moss are composed into the classic chypre Alberto Morillas blends with other characteristic ingredients. Adding the fruity essence of citrus to colourful mulberry he permeates the fragrance with a certain youth and magnetism. Rose metamorphoses into a heart of white flowers, plucked with rich, radiant intonations. Moss – the symbol of sensuality in a chypre fragrance – is replaced by powerful black musk that softly caress the skin, while conjuring an irresistible sensuality. Using an innovative extraction process, the Master Perfumer has managed to also preserve all the purest, most radiant aspects of patchouli. BLACK GOLD
