Bulgari has launched a new collection of fragrances BVLGARI Splendida. The collection is with three of the most iconic flowers, Rose, Jasmine and Iris and inspires “a journey to the heart of the three most iconic flowers.”  Iris was a symbol of regality for Medici of Florence, the referred to the flower as “blue gold.” I tried Iris D’Or which is a light fragrance.  The heart note is Iris Absolute and the base notes are tonka vanilla and sandalwood that gives the flowery scent a more rounded fragrance. What I love about this fragrance is it is delicate, feminine and soft.  It still has a hint of sensuality and allure.
