Beauty Advent Calendar : Bulgari Aqva Amara and Divina
Scents of the sea
The new Mediterranean scent from Bulgari, Aqva Divina, is inspired by Venus—the goddess of love and the eternal symbol of feminine beauty. The idea that master perfumer Alberto Morillas had in mind was to create a scent that evoked the salty, sun-kissed skin that you'd find on a summer day by the beach. Bulgari's Aqva Divina EDT's notes include salty bergamot, pink ginger, magnolia, nude amber and beeswax for a spicy energy, coupled with a fruity tonaliy and woody finish. The jewel-shaped bottle also draws inspiration from the curves and delicate shape of a seashell—an ultra feminine and poetic metaphor.
To complement the feminine scent, Bulgari Aqva Amara is an aquatic, masculine scent made for the strong, self-assured man. Paying homage to the Mediterranean and the basic elements of the world (water, air, earth and mineral), the top notes of the Aqva Amara include Sicilian mandarin, Neroli, Indonesian patchouli and ollbanum. The copper-coloured rounded bottle is a unique, reinterpretated design that pays tribute to the metal itself—a vital element of the volcanic lands of the Mediterranean.
