From florals to fruity florals to woodsy notes to exotic spices, fragrances are at the center of our olfactory experience. And why shouldn’t they be? Perfumes define our identities, reinforce our memories and distinguish our personalities. The modern woman’s beauty routine surely wouldn’t be complete without them.
But there’s something else you wouldn’t want to skip out on when it comes to your beauty regime. Enter: Versace’s Bright Crystal.
From the genius minds that brought you Dylan Blue and Eros, Bright Crystal’s velvety scent is a must-have for any woman’s collection and just might be one of the best feminine perfumes we’ve ever come across. Simple, gentle, and oh-so-subtle — it’s one of those scents that when you try it for the first time, you wonder why you haven’t done that sooner.
This alluring feminine fragrance from renowned perfumer Alberto Morillas is filled with fruity notes entwined with delightful floral notes, further enhanced with hints of wood. The opening flavors of Versace Bright Crystal are refreshing, with slightly aquatic notes, along with cold yuzu and fizzy pomegranate. It’s mouth-wateringly juicy, though a bit tart to begin with. But give it a few minutes, and it bursts into a glistening bouquet of ultra-feminine peony, lotus, and magnolia middle notes. In the dry down, the floral notes become powdery with musk and blend with the amber and mahogany to form this tender, woody scent.
Versace did a great job of preventing Bright Crystal from being overly floral or fruity. The citrus and aquatic notes provide a sense of balance, providing a nice contrast between energetic and calm.
The uber-feminine fragrance is available in several concentrations. There’s the original Versace Bright Crystal Eau de Toilette (which also comes in a gift set) and the Versace Bright Crystal Absolu Eau de Parfum; the latter being a stronger flanker of the original Versace Bright Crystal perfume.
There are also several bottle sizes to choose from. We personally love the Versace Bright Crystal 3 oz bottle size. Because of its small size, you can easily carry it anywhere, and store it in a purse, wallet, pocket, backpack, etc. Bottles are also available in 1 oz, 1.7 oz, and 6.7 oz sizes.
Versace’s Bright Crystal is as unsophisticated as they come. And that’s a good thing. Bright Crystal’s essence is rooted in a certain level of simplicity that makes it so easy to use. Clean and energetic, there’s no fuss or unnecessary complexity here. Instead, it sticks to its original purpose — being a floral scent that leaves any woman smelling gorgeous for hours on end.
Fruity Magnolia, our Versace Bright Crystal dupe, provides a similar effect. Our take on Versace’s iconic perfume for women includes a unique combination of natural fruit flavors to create a refreshing and fresh scent that, perhaps, makes a strong case for bright crystal notes. Vibrant and colorful, Dossier’s replica of Versace Bright Crystal is the perfect gift for anyone who yearns for a nostalgic trip back in time — to an era of innocent youth and playful naivety.
