Last Sunday I went to Sephoras I grabbed this bottle and sprayed it on my wrist. I walked around and came back to this one but the immediate smell is not that pleasant so I left. Boy was I surprised when I COULDNT STOP SMELLING my wrist! CRAZY but this perfume is so addicting. I refused to pay $95 for this bottle at the store but kept thinkING and talking about it until a friend told me about overstock.com on Wednesday (FEB 3) I checked and I was blown away with the price (so good). I was skeptical because I have never bought perfume online but after thinking about it another day I order this perfume on Thursday around 1pm and I recieved it MONDAY feb 8. I now must say that I will never buy another perfume at full price and will be a devoted customer to the big "O." I recommend buying here the bottle came nicely packaged in the original BVLGARI box no scratches on the box or dents and absolutely no scratches or marks on the bottle. This perfume is so perfect and I can honestly say it last allllll day because the smell lasted on my coat from Sunday to Wednesday thats why I got addicted to this smell.
First off, excellent service and deal on this product from Overstock. Now on to the scent. This perfume is exceptional on the right skin. On the "wrong" skin, it can be a pure rose scent (I guess it isn't "wrong" if that's what you like). As a person who finds pure rose scents from perfumes (not real live roses!) to be different degrees of repulsive, this perfume's pure rose scent on the "wrong" skin is the least repulsive I've smelled. That said, on the right skin types, this scent is so amazingly feminine and delicious/sensuous. Can't really explain the scent by breaking it down to the notes and such, as my nose isn't that well-cultured in this type of artistry, but you must try this on your skin first before purchasing it. Do not purchase it for others as a gift unless you know beforehand that they like it for the reasons stated above. If you purchase it for yourself, try it once in the summer, then again in the winter. My skin apparently changes enough that Rose Essentielle smells fabulous and soft yet alluring one season, but pure rose during another season. If you are lucky enough that your skin allows the other scents besides the pure rose to come through all year, this is truly a uniquely delicate and sophisticated feminine scent I've not had the pleasure in experiencing from other perfumes. As to staying power, it is not the longest-lasting compared to other edp's, but that is to be expected from most of Bvlgari perfumes, at least on my skin (dry most of the year, but normal during the summer).
The product was exactly what I wanted, but 70% less than the department store price. What a bargin!
The scent is exactly the same as I tried in the deparment store. I am so pleased I looked on Overstock before I purchased this gift at the store.
Ive been using this perfume since 2012 it was a gift from my husband and I absolutely love it. It is soft yet sophisticated and elegant and it can be worn in the morning as well as evening, truth is you can not go wrong with Bvlgari's perfumes.
I think the next step will be to buy Bvlgari's Rose Essentielle Body Lotion" that will be a killer combination.
You'd be better off buying a cheap rose scented body spray. The product I received is most definitely a knockoff, 100%. Held it up to the same exact sized bottle purchased from Nordstroms. The color is off. The fake is a much lighter pink, while the authentic bottle is a darker duskier rose pink. The glass is not quite as thick and the pump is of very cheap quality on the Overstock version. Stay away from this, the lack of quality ingredients is apparent, as it smells just like a cheap rose scented body spray that uses no scented rose oils, just a bunch of manufactured scent comprised mostly of alcohol and water.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The authentic Bvlgari bottles are adarker shade of pink- a darker duty rose as opposed to barely light, slightly pink.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not at all for what you get in the mail.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Terrible. Cheap knockoff.
