Bvlgari celebrates its 130th anniversary with Opera Prima, a new limited edition fragrance and collector bottle.
The Opera Prima, an elegant chypre essence with radiant and feminine notes, is a unique collaboration between two masters of Italian craftsmanship: Bvlgari and Venini. The sculptural bottle, created by the master glassmakers, evokes the ancient Roman amphora which held precious stones, spices and floral essences. Dazzling in its vivid combination of colours, and embellished with approximately 250 carats of citrine, more than 25 carats of diamonds and over 4.45 carats of amethyst cleverly set in yellow gold, the bottle features a sheet of gold that is melted between different layers of glass. The fragrance, created by master perfumer Daniela Andrier, recalls the essences of the Mediterranean with its notes of citron, lemon and orange flower.
You can find it on Bvlgari's 130th anniversary microsite. I am assuming very few (possibly only one) were made, but I do not know how many, nor do I know the size or price.
Update: the price is reportedly €260,000.
