There are three main things that Bvlgari is famous for - its jewellery, its watches and its fragrances. The luxury brand offers nothing more but opulence, sophistication and extravagance. It has an interesting history and some iconic creations remembered by all.
Bvlgari was founded back in 1884 in Rome by Greek immigrant Sotirios Voulgaris. The founder was a skilled jewellery maker and soon his astounding creations became popular with the elite of Rome and of Europe at the time. The flagship shop of the brand in via dei Condotti opened in 1905 and has ever since been a magnet for millionaires and celebrities. The brand became famous for its high quality jewellery pieces, which at the time were inspired by Ancient Greek and Roman art.
One really interesting thing about the luxury designer brand is its name. Bvlgari is spelled with the Roman letter V which is actually the equivalent to U in the English alphabet. That is why even though the spelling is with V the brand's name is pronounced as Bulgari.
The modern and elegant jewellery of Bvlgari became extremely popular in the 1970's. The designs were characterised by clean straight lines and were inspired by architecture. The designers masterfully combined gold links with interlocking steel. The jewellery of the brand is also famous for its coloured stones and especially sapphires cut in unique shapes and combined in a whimsical way.
The brand's watches are also famous worldwide. Each one of them has a unique serial number which is registered with the company. Since 2001, the company has its own luxury hotel brand. Its first hotel opened in Milan in 2004.
The first Bvlgari fragrance was introduced to the market in 1992. Eau Parfumee au De Vert is unisex cologne with fresh and spicy notes. It offers a blend of bergamot, orange blossom, coriander, cardamom, pepper, jasmine, rose, oak moss, green neat, Tonka beans and beeswax. The next perfume the brand launched was Pour Femme. It became an instant hit and was relaunched in 2006 with model Kate Moss as the spokeswoman for the fragrance.
The famous Bvlgari Black for Men was launched back in 1998 and remains one of the most unique masculine fragrances designed especially for the modern man of the city. The BLV perfume for women debuted in 2000 and was followed by BLV Pour Homme in 2001.
Omnia is one of the most popular Bvlgari perfumes. It is easily recognised for its bottle design consisting of two metal rings embracing a crystal heart with the perfume inside. Omnia is reserved for sophisticated women who want to add an exotic and sensual touch to their elegance.
Some of the most notable recent perfumes of the brand include Aqva pour Homme (2005), the floral Rose Essentielle and Voile de Jasmin for women (2005) and Jasmin Noir for women (2008). The latest fragrances which we can enjoy are Aqva Pour Homme Toniq (2011), Jasmin Noir L'Elixir and Mon Jasmin Noir L'Elixir (2012).
