 Elegant, playful, mysterious. 

Inspired by the vision of a beautiful Roman goddess, the newest fragrance by Bulgari is an intoxicating, hypnotic scent that's an ode to the Eternal City.

Set against a backdrop of a stunning starry night, Goldea The Roman Night, was dreamed up by Master-Perfume Alberto Morillas as a dazzling, stunning fragrance worn by the woman who knows what she wants and how to get it.

She's brave and bold, fiercely feminine—commanding attention every time she steps into the room. What makes her presence so attractive? Perhaps it's her je nai se quois, an unexplainable quality that turns heads wherever she goes. Or maybe it’s the delicate whiff of floral-meets-musk, which trails effortlessly behind her, leaving an air of elegance and confidence in her wake.

She hasn’t lost the art of dressing up. In an Instagram-crazy, time-starved world, it’s the one time she’s indulgent with. A gorgeous dress, a sensual fragrance, exquisite jewellery and a signature smokey eye­—they accentuate her allure and envelop her in glamour.

Just like a modern-day Roman goddess clad in elegant black, the slightly translucent Goldea The Roman Night bottle playfully reflects glimmers of light, while still keeping its mysterious demeanour.  Its sleek exterior is coated in a chic black lacquer and it's topped by a clear round disc encircled by an intricate pattern of scales, reminiscent of a beautiful piece of jewellery.

What would sway the heart of a goddess? Perhaps a dramatic gesture in the form of larger-than-life balloons may bid her smile. Or the old-as-time gift of a lovely bouquet. True romantics know that the answer would lie in a beautiful fragrance.

After all, there are very few things as intimate, or alluring as the gift of scent. Deceptively ephemeral, perfume blossoms at first spritz but lingers on skin all day long. Scent has also been strongly tied to emotions and memories, and it'll leave an indelible mark as she boldly takes on the night.

A fragrance that is irresistibly compelling calls for an elegant chypre of floral-muskiness, showcasing luscious base notes made up of mulberry and black peony.

A sensuous mix of night-blooming jasmine and tuberose absolute add a heady, mysterious character to its heart, while black musk, patchouli heart and vetiver musk finishes the fragrance with a complex feminine woodiness.
