Bvlgari?s Omnia Indian Garnet caresses the skin with sparkling mandarin citrus, creamy, soft florals and warm, elegant saffron. Osmanthus and tuberose infuse the heart with apricot suede, black tea nuances, and a lush, buttery texture. Amber?s sweet glow falls over refined and polished woods in the base.

So this is the third perfume from Bvlgari's Omnia line that I ordered. The first was the Crystalline EDT and I fell in LOVE with it. Of course then I ordered the EDP and was surprised that the perfume wasn't heavier than the toilette and that they smelled almost similar! That was okay since I like the EDT so much. Now I tried for the Indian Garnet and I can't believe that there is a note in there that is similar to all three. While there is a hint of spice in this one (and I mean, a HINT), it is a little disappointing that there is not larger presence to this fragrance. It's very mild and soft and you can barely grasp the spice. Still it's a nice scent and I can wear it for spring...I was looking for something with a little more substance. Through the three of them, the Omnia Crystalline EDT is my favorite and will be buying a large bottle of that one. I'm giving the Omnia line a rest for now to branch out and try other lines!
This Omnia is so gorgeous and unique and intimate. If I didn?t love that coral so much I would say that this is easily the best of them. It opens with spicy notes. That saffron really emerged. Peach and osmanthus. As I have said in other reviews, typically osmanthus strikes me as overbearing, but not here. The ending notes felt almost woody-fresh in how they lingered. I felt like this one could be super sexy in just the right setting. Even if I wear it and I?m on my own, I feel cozy and intimate. And that makes his always worth my whole.
However- it doesn?t last a long time. Keep on your person and reapply.
My daily fragrance since I received it. I'm Asked multiple times daily what I'm wearing. Which at 1st worried me so I'd ask if it was to strong or offensive. My answer back from that was always: NO YOU SMELL AMAZING. But what made me go buy a full size bottle was when... a handsome 6ft + Man put his nose to my neck & inhaled deeply and moaned my God you smell good. SOLD!!!
Thanks IPSY for the introduction. What's next??
I have had this scent for a while and absolutely love it. When I don?t have a strong preference for how I want to smell on any given day, I can reach for this and know that at first spray it will put me in a great mood. Now I swear, without reading the description, I have wracked my brain trying to figure out what notes are in this...so when it?s described as exotic, I?d say that?s spot-on. But there?s no sense of heavy Oud-exoticness...more like soapy-clean. Oh...and it drives my husband crazy. If I ask him what I should wear, 9 times out of 10 he reaches for this.
I LOVED this scent. It's soft and sensual. I don't understand why some people say it's an old lady scent; it's really not. It smells AMAZING. I was really wanting to find a perfume that I LOVED and I finally found it. This is going to be my new favorite perfume. I was using D&G light blue and wanted a change; this perfume is it. I can't say how much I really love it.
Update: after using the sample I still LOVE the scent BUT it doesn't last. I wish it lasted all day. I feel like the scent fades very fast. Which is really sad bc I love the smell.
A very elegant evening smell. Not too overpowering or spicy and from the first spray has become my favorite (was not one of those well I don't know, maybe it will grow on me) Just wish it would stay all day
This perfume doesn?t smell ?bad? it?s just too mature for my taste. It reminds me of something my mother would wear for a special occasion. It?s very warm (perfect for winter). I prefer cleaner smells. Light and Airy.
I get more compliments on this perfume than any other! When I wear it I always get asked what it is & where can they get it at. I was nervous since it does have a bit of that ?old lady? perfume smell but it doesn?t smell like that once it?s on. This is my absolute favorite because it also lasts longer on my oily skin than any other perfume I?ve tried. ???
Dont know why some people are giving this scent 1 star and claiming it smells like an older lady. It has a sophisticated aroma that makes me feel sexy. Im 21 years old and this scent is by far my favorite, and Ive already tried versace crystal, burberry london and brit, and gucci guilty (a very close second). Highly recommend!
Indian Garnet caught me by surprise. It is definitely a scent that will get the attention of others. It smells sweet in a spicy way not so much like candy. I?m addicted to all of the Bvlgari Omnia scents and I own them all.
Nice spicy notes while still feeling soft and feminine.
My favorite of the Omnia scents from Bvlgari by far. I like that it has floral and aqua ?wet? notes, as well as a good amount of warmth and spice to it. The spillage is strong, and the dry down fades the aqua scent notes down to the spicy notes. It does feel like it burns off a little faster on me, but that?s the norm for me on most fragrances.
This scent mixes so excellent with my body chemistry. There have been sometimes where I will smell a perfume buy it and spray it on my body and it smells completely different which is so odd. But then I smell the same scent on someone else and it smells just like it should. Talk about frustrating! I love this omnia Indian garnet! It smells amazing on me.
I love this perfume. It's not overly feminine, which I love. The flowery notes are subtle compared to the citrus and woodsy notes. I keep trying to smell myself it's so nice. Definitely will purchase full size.
This is my first fragrance from Scentbird and I am in love! Here are my takeaways from it:
- Initial scent: Floral; almost rose like but not quite. If you?re not a rose fan, like me, give this one a minute or so. It quickly changes to a more mellow fruity scent. Think orange creamsicle but not sickening sweet.
- I can smell some wood and suede notes in the dry down but it?s far from being anything manly.
- The staying power is okay. I reapplied after four hours and that took me to the end of the day. This is one that you can smell on yourself and is very pleasing.
Summary: Bvlgari Omnia India Garnet is a lovely, clean and crisp scent that is perfect for the transition from summer to fall.
Looooooove this fragrance!!! I've received soooo many compliments in this scent from male and female! It's a soft beautiful scent! I've walked into a store and everyone wanted to smell. A few men wanted to purchase it for their wives! Yes, I purchased a bottle of this fragrance! :-)
I have gotten a lot of compliments on this scent. I personally don't feel like this scent is unique enough for me to purchase a full size version. Don't get me wrong, it's a wonderful scent - just not for me.
Very floral... doesn't smell completely old, but there is a definite old vibe that makes it unwearable for me. I thought the citrus would be stronger, I love citrus, but it's barely there. It smells great, it's just not for me.
Not as exciting as I'd hoped. It's a little strong at first and the dry-down is somewhat "perfume-y". I don't know how else to describe it. It has what I've always referred to as a high alcohol content. Not as luxurious as I expect for the brand. Decent, but, I won't be buying or getting more of the Omnias.
This is my new favorite! It's deeply romantic, so far been perfect for this winter, now going into Valentine's Day! I really enjoy all of the Versace perfumes I've received as well. I guess I need a stronger scent. Not headache strong though. It seems like a lot of perfumes don't stay on me for more than an hour. I enjoy going for a walk and smelling this all around me instead of just the spot I sprayed.
This is a gorgeous scent. At first it's a soft citrus with an edge to it, then it quickly turns to a mellow sexy woody floral. It's complex, but unfortunately very fleeting. I find I have to reapply often. I would buy the full size though because I think it's worth it.
I love this perfume. I have never tried a Bvlgari perfume before. This is definitely a grown up scent. Sexy, sophisticated and warm. It is a fall scent that can be worn at work or while out on a date. I wore this to work one day and received multiple compliments.
From the description, I really thought I would love this but sadly I did not...the floral was just too heave and didn't seem to mesh well with the other notes on me. I usually like Bulgari scents but this one was a miss!
Su olor es dulce y atractivo que cuando lo usas las personas botean y tratan de acercarte para oler ese maravilloso.olor me encanta y lo difruto y a mi esposo le encanta tambiem le facina lo a traigo mcho solo de ponerme ete olor tan divino
Sadly...I didn't care for this at ALL.
When I first popped the cap, I was excited. That faint waft was promising but just one small spritz was overbearingly strong. Waiting for it to dry down to that initial enticing tease ... proved futile. It remained cloying until I just didnt smell it at all anymore.
I tend to reeaaaly try to love scents that are packaged in something that I truly want to own...Lol. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get behind this old smelling, heavy fragrance. Too much floral for me.
This scent is "fine". But, it feels muddy to me. There isn't a note that stands out and it sort of just lingers on the body as one amalgamation of scent. Others might like that - but I prefer scents that have a top, middle and bottom fragrance composition. This sort of smells like the overall waft of a department store as you walk in. Not my favorite scent at all.
I actually own this one in a full size. It was one of those purchases I made after my nose could no longer really smell and the coffee beans weren't helping. This is a very warm scent, something I could see flattering an Indian woman as it has that typical exotic incense flair that is coveted in that part of the world. The name is actually very appropriate for its scent. The reason I don't particularly care from these types of scents is because they tend to mask body odor by mixing with it quite well. Therefore, instead of smelling pretty, it just reminds me of body odor. So if you don't prefer the musky scents of traditional incense, you won't like this. But if you do, this is a beautiful scent that is reminiscent of patchouli, isn't too strong once it's worn in, and has a bit of staying power.
At first this scent annoyed me. But after 15-20 min. It transformed into something more sensual. The spice wear's long throughout the day so reapplication is not necessary. Great for an evening or event.
VERY nice fragrance! It's a fragrance unlike any other. Nice, earthy, warm, sweet, artsy, eclectic, spice. Mature smell that reeks class and sophistication, but definitely not stuffy and not old lady like, at all. I will be be buying this in larger size. ?
I love this perfume. I like initial smell and get compliments throughout the day. However, it is not as musky as I prefer. I would purchase full size if it were major discounted. It is a very nice smell, no sweet floral smell that I can't stand. Clean and sweet smelling...in my opinion. I give it a 7.
I really enjoy the fragrance of this perfume. I am currently not using because I've broken my leg and they don't want many scents where I'm at, so my mother is enjoying it for me. Definitely needing to purchase full size.
Eh.... this was very floral on me, and I hated it. It seemed like one, long note of something green and grassy.
I really would have thought that something called Indian Garnet would be more of a spicy, warm scent, which I adore. This did nothing for me.
i really wanted to love the combo of this scent. i love citrus and spice but maybe the wood notes brought it down to a bit of a flat fragrance. turned it almost into a powder fresh, just not what i was looking for, personally. however, did re-gift this fragrance to my gran who loved it.
I ordered this because I got it as a Christmas gift in 2013 and loved it.... When it came it smelled nothing like the one I used to have... Idk if I got the wrong one? This smells great though! As do all the Bvlgari perfumes! Lasts all day too
The mandarin is the first thing that hit me when I sprayed this. It was light and refreshing. It is a beautiful delicate fragrance. However, it fades rather quickly in my opinion. I wear perfumes for me not for those around me. It may need a reapply in the evening, but it is worth it. :)
Kind of reminds me of an old-lady scent. Not sure which particular note is giving me that impression, but it's something on the top layer. (Maybe it just smells like something my grandmother wore, and not actually old-lady in general!) Seems a bit soapy, too. Just not something I'd want to wear really.
