It was only 90s when the design house Bvlgari made the leap from high-class jewelry and fine fashion to perfumes. We’re very glad they did. Bvlgari perfumes betray a complexity that seems too good to be just a few decades in the making. This is well demonstrated in the green tea inspired Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, one of the world’s most popular unisex scents.

But for now, we turn to Bvlgari’s massively successful Omnia range. An eclectic range of fragrances that include such offerings as Pink Sapphire, Crystalline, Amethyst, and Coral, all with exotic notes hailing from India and the Far East. In 2009, Bvlgari launched Omnia Jade Green, a perfume aimed at younger women.
Jade is said to represent harmony and seduction, and you can see this expressed in the bottle design. The signature Omnia shape of two elegantly linked disks returns – this time with silver and green hues. You can certainly pick up hints of Bvlgari’s Greco-Roman roots in the design of this bold vessel.
On the first spray, top notes of green mandarin and spring water delight the nose with a zesty kick. This all takes place over a strong base of pistachio flavors, wood, and musk. While in the heart, aromas of peony, jasmine and pear blossom come to the fore.
Spanish perfumer Alberto Morillas has carved an incredible career in his 66 years of life. Beginning at the age of 20 after joining Swiss firm Firmenich in 1970, he’s behind some of the world’s most famous fragrances. After establishing himself at Firmenich with the creation of their first scent, Must de Cartier, Morillas has now put his name to almost 7000 perfumes.
In a career full of highlights, some of his most important creations have been Kenzo Flower and Cartier Panthere de Cartier. After creating 1994’s Calvin Klein CK One, Morillas secured his place in history as the creator of the world’s first unisex fragrance. With Bvlgari’s Omnia range, Morillas adds yet another feather to his cap.
Here’s what he had to say about Omnia Jade Green:
“I thought of its colors, green with white shadows, of the energy of this millenary gemstone, symbol of the good, the beautiful and the precious. I have built the scent around a white petal cascade and a vivid freshness, combined with the rare and mystic texture of white wood and exotic musks.”
What hits you first is its tea-like, citrussy freshness. It brings to mind a refreshing sip of cucumber-infused water on a spring’s day. It’s friendly, crisp, and utterly subtle. Notes blend seamlessly together, creating a sophisticated and charming taste.
Who would like it
This scent is aimed at younger women, but its fragrance doesn’t lean too much to femininity and feels very unisex in its composition. Its subtle flavors don’t lend themselves to the teenage market, but more to women in their 20s and 30s.
Where to wear it
An adaptable, everyday kind of scent. This versatile fragrance is office-friendly, while also perfect for going for dinner or doing daily tasks. It’s a summer scent that suits the heat, but also goes well in cold settings when you need a taste of summer.
