Bulgari to dazzle with “Le Gemme Orientali” inspired by the gemstones of the Arabian Peninsula. With the help of Master-Perfumer Daniela Andrier, Bulgari has created three magnificent perfumes that smell as good as they look.
Drawing inspiration from the color, light and emotions of these gemstones, Bulgari has created three little adventures called Zahira, Selima and Lazulia, each with its own meaning. Zahira, meaning ‘shining and luminous’, represented by the magnificent Imperial Topal, a symbol of regality and purity. Selima, meaning ‘serene and calm’, inspired by the Carnelian, symbol of serenity and wealth and Lazulia, meaning ‘deep blue’, inspired by the Lapis Lazuli, the gemstone of royalty and spirituality. To tie this journey together, Bulgari has created a beautiful bottle that takes its inspiration from the ancient vases the Romans once used to carry precious materials.Each perfume is presented with a captivating arabesque cap inspired by the INTARSIO BVLGARI jewelry collection. A perfect gift for any woman wanting to highlight her femininity and personality this Eid.
Zahira drives you through a journey across the hot golden deserts of Arabia. It evokes the intense glow of the imperial topaz, a bright gem that radiates energy, bestows confidence and charisma, inspires admiration and respect.
Zahira, meaning “shining and luminous” in Arabic, is a radiant and fiery oriental floral Eau de Parfum that diffuses the glowing warmth of the desert. This golden fragrance opens powerfully with the fiery spice heat of royal cinnamon, to then unfurl into a heady, swirling heart of radiant ylang-ylang, a lively flower with rich tones as vibrant and luminous as the rays of the sun, sustained by voluptuous benzoin resinoid, bright and rich.

It is inspired by the carnelian, a sacred gemstone symbol of serenity and abundance, life & wealth, which replaces negative with a love of life.Selima, an evocative Arabic name meaning “serene and calm”, is a soothing, incandescent oriental spicy Eau de Parfum of luscious red energy. At the centre of this deliciously rich and addictive fragrance is saffron, veiled rose of the Orient, made intensely gourmand by the embrace of date delight and a profusion of alluring spicy top notes.

Luxury house Bulgari has launched three new perfumes inspired by the Arabian Peninsula, the birthplace of the perfume world.
Le Gemme Orientali is a complementary collection of three exotic eaux de parfum inspired by the most emblematic gemstones of the Arabian Peninsula: the imperial topaz, the carnelian, and the lapis lazuli.
Since ancient times, jewellery and perfumes have been woven together in an enduring love affair, says Bulgari, adding that its journey along the gems road continues with Le Gemme Orientali, “travelling across the desert, navigating by the stars, from oasis to oasis… along secret routes first carved into the sands by camel caravans”.
Created by master perfumer Daniela Andrier, the high-end perfumes draw inspiration from the gems’ colours, lights and emotions.
Bulgari has created a luxurious, modern and instantly recognizable flacon that takes its inspiration from the ancient amphora, the Roman vessel used to carry precious materials such as oil, gems, silk, perfumes and spices.
Each precious gemstone is presented in a shimmering bottle whose captivating arabesque cap is inspired by the intricate mosaics of the Intarsio Bvlgari jewelry collection.
Zahira is inspired by the sacred carnelian, a symbol of serenity and wealth and is a “desert odyssey of fiery intensity, lit by the sun-kissed radiance of imperial topaz”. Zahira, which means “shining and luminous” in Arabic, is a tribute to the “golden glow of the stone that rivals the sun”.
Selima offers a journey through the rich world of the Arabian Peninsula, inspired by the sacred
carnelian, a symbol of serenity and wealth. Selima, derived from Arabic, means “serene and calm”, to celebrate the soothing energy of the bewitching carnelian.
Lazulia is a fragrance as shimmering as desert stars, rising and drifting in a vast midnight skies of the bluest lapis lazuli, the gemstone of royalty and spirituality. Lazulia, which means “deep blue” in Arabia, is a homage to the gold-flecked ultramarine color of this celestial gemstone.
Le Gemme collection is described as “fragrant interpretations of the fine gemstones that inspire all Bulgari jewellery creations. They awaken the senses and highlight femininity in all its facets, revealing, in every woman, their desires and personality and beauty”.
