BVLGARI Omnia Indian Garnet  

nd.23709

A new release for 20114, BVLGARI Omnia Indian Garnet is in the same vein as Omnia Jade and the rest of the Crystal range, and the bottle is similar too: looking like a beautiful piece of modern jewellery.

The blurb says it “captures the magic and the sensuality of Tuberose and Osmanthus” and frankly, it does.

Omnia Indian Garnet makes me think of sunsets at the end of an Indian Summer day.  This could just be the orange packaging, I suppose, but the hint of Amber underneath the rather lovely Tuberose (added with a light hand) and the Apricotty Osmanthus, makes for a wonderful summer scent with a faint bite of heat in the base.

My only complaint here is that I would have liked it to have had more oomph.  It’s so light and delicate that even two minutes after testing I have to sniff very close to my skin to get a waft of it. Lasting power is also disappointing at around three hours close to skin.  However, I am testing the Eau de Toilette so maybe with an Eau de Parfum this problem would be solved. Unfortunately I don’t see any Eau de Parfums on the Omnia range at all, anywhere, so I guess that’s that.

The bottle alone is enough to make me buy this, but I just need this delicate flower to have a few more muscles.

  1. I have tried this! My recall is a bit off, but I think I had a similar take on it to you, namely that it was rather fleeting. The original Omnia was rather sheer come to think of it, and this one most closely resembles that, I guess. The one before this – Coral?? – I didn’t care for that one bit. It seemed not to be of the same calibre as most of the Bvlgaris.

    1. Hi Vanessa, I remember trying the Omnia Jade and it didn’t really register either way on me so I shall try it again. This one was lovely, but over so quickly, which is a shame as it was pretty and a nice change from the toffee candy shop patchouli horrors that are so plentiful!
