Omnia Crystalline EDT description
Today’s moment of Zen is brought to you by Bvlgari’s Omnia Crystalline EDT. This is a fragrance so pure, so translucent, so, well, crystalline in its freshness that you can almost visualize a crystal chandelier tinkling in a soft breeze when you wear it.
Only the cleanest, most mountain-pure notes were chosen for this fragrance – a dewy lotus blossom, quivering in a layer of morning frost, green bamboo, black tea, and the crisp apple flavors of the most delicate of all fruits, Nashi, the Asian pear.
These crisp, aqueous notes are wrapped in a gauzy white musk with all the tensile weight of mist. Gosh, this is so refined and elegant, it makes us want to instantly straighten our backs and take our elbows off the table.
There is a clean, Asian aesthetic at play here – one might imagine supping on tiny cups of tea in a traditional Japanese wooden house, high up in the hills, the silk screen sliding doors open to the vast forests beneath. Inside, the air smells like toasty, smoky cedarwood and guaiac wood – outside, the air smells green and almost frosty. This is a perfume that invites you to breathe in deeply.
Omnia Crystalline is crisp and cooling, thus perfect for the professional woman who needs to project a Zen sort of calm throughout the day. But the comforting, soapy whiteness of its drydown also makes it a wonderful choice for the woman who just needs to feel refreshed and bathed at the end of a long, tiresome day.
There is a cosseting tenderness to this fragrance that’s just delightful. At times it smells like the most expensive green tea soap in the world; at others, like a cool, dewy mist impregnated with slices of pear and delicate flower petals. There are even hints of dry, smoky wood, a cabin-in-the-woods kind of wood.
Real oakmoss in the tailbone gives Omnia Crystalline an interesting spicy mossiness that hints at the depths of a dark, fairytale forest and lichen-covered trees. It also gives the scent a sense of damp earthiness, like mountain water running over tree stumps and stones on the forest floor after a heavy rainfall. We don’t know about you guys, but something about this keeps us reaching for it whenever we want to restore internal peace and happiness.
With its Zen-like properties of tea, musk, lotus blossom, and Nashi pear, Omnia Crystalline EDT will keep you as cool and collected while everyone around is decidedly not.
