Bvlgari Perfume: Spelled Funny, Smells Funny

All English majors in the world -- RUN! The Bvlgari perfume is going to drive you and your spellchecker insane. Sometimes, when trying to find information on Bvlgari perfume, you might have to look for “Bulgari perfume”. It in the nature of our brains to try and make order out of chaos. “Bvl” just doesn’t have a phonetic equivalent. But “Bul” does, and so perfume sellers continue to market “Bulgari perfume” even though this is a misspelling of the product.

Squeeze Me?

Bvlgari is a famous designer label, making everything from sunglasses to watches. They also, obviously, make fabulously expensive perfume. They are considered the brand you want to wear if you are nominated for an Oscar. The Bvlgari brand name is less well known than Tiffany’s, but has a more fanatical and discriminating following. Bvlgari watches, for example, are considered equal to Rolex.

Bvlgari perfume is made with expensive and hard to get ingredients like roses. Roses? Aren’t they everywhere? Well, it takes about 4000 pounds of rose petals to yield one ounce of pure essential rose oil. Any perfume with rose included is going to be very pricey just because of that. One of the most popular Bvlgari perfumes is Rose Essentielle, which is mostly made up of other scents other than rose, or no one would buy it. It also has blackberry, living mimosa, patchouli and several other flowers whose names makes this writer’s eyes cross.

Testing, Testing

One of the more realistic and fun options Bvlgari perfumes provides that many other designer perfume makers don’t is that they sell tester sized bottles. They are usually are sold online, so you need to fire up the old Google and your old noodle in order to find them. One of the stores that sells them is These bottles usually do not have the fancy designs and packaging of their larger siblings, but do you want to buy the bottle or the perfume?

Another place you can check for more economical prices on Bvlgari perfume is from online sites like eBay. You might have to deal with a used or opened bottle. Be sure to never send a seller money by wire – that usually indicates a scammer. Check the seller’s rating to read what other buyers think of the seller. Be patient and do a lot of praying. Even for expensive perfumes, when the sniffer is ready, the perfume will appear within your budget.
