It reportedly took four years, but Bvlgari did eventually sell that Opera Prima fragrance extravaganza, and now they've done it again, this time for the (comparatively) budget customer: meet L’Opera Grandiosa, available now at La Samaritaine in Paris for a mere €50,000. It's apparently been for sale since late last year, so if you want it, get a move on.
A flacon crafted like a jewel, L’Opera Grandiosa symbolizes the olfactive gems of nature Bulgari transforms into its Le Gemme Eau de Parfum collection. L’Opera Grandiosa represents the pinnacle of parfum flacon design.
The bottle is mouth-blown Venetian glass, with a "necklace" inspired by the brand's Serpenti jewelry and featuring 18k rose gold plus rubellites, amethysts and citrines, and two brilliant cut diamonds on the collar. The cap itself is a 2.5 carat spherical malachite. At this price, however, you do not get a one-of-a-kind juice; it is filled with Le Gemme Desiria (magnolia, rose and musk).
