Kathleen Kye talks about her new collector bottle of Bvlgari Rose Goldea.
A collector bottle of Bvlgari Rose Goldea, decorated by Kathleen Kye: "This new year, Bvlgari Rose Goldea launches a new limited edition in collaboration with the most influential young Korean fashion designer, Kathleen Kye. The bright colours are glowing, diffusing and spreading their brilliancy, impacting the surroundings. Just like the women empowerment's powerful influence on people around the world." Available now at Takashimaya in Singapore.
Bvlgari has launched the Allegra collection, with five fragrances “expressing colorful and intense Italian emotions” (Dolce Estasi, Fantasia Veneta, Fiori d’Amore, Riva Solare and Rock’n’Rome) and five “magnifying” essences for layering (Bergamot, Musk, Patchouli, Rose and Vanilla).
The scent of black tea makes me smile; it can reset my mood from blah to cheerful. Any flavored version of black tea I enjoy tasting, I enjoy smelling, too, even in perfumes. Black tea mixes well with citrus (bergamot, orange, grapefruit, the “classic” lemon), spices, flowers (jasmine, rose), fruits (plum, apricot, peach, berries). Black tea can be sweet, bitter, fresh, or rich and smoky. In Eau Parfumée Au Thé Noir, Bvlgari mixes a black tea accord with bergamot, rose, leather, oud, patchouli and vanilla.
Though I’ve tried Bvlgari’s other Eau Parfumée perfumes — Eau Parfumée Au Thé Vert, Eau Parfumée Au Thé Blanc, Eau Parfumée Au Thé Rouge, Eau Parfumée Au Thé Bleu — until recently, Eau Parfumée Au Thé Noir was a stranger. I’m glad I discovered it…
