Bvlgari was founded by Sotirios Voulgaris in 1884. The company name is a derivative of the founder's last name, and the letter "V" in the word is the Latin classical alphabet character for letter "U," so the word is pronounced simply as if it were written as "Bulgari."
Bvlgari first international stores were opened in 1970, New York, Paris, Geneve and Monte Carlo. Initially famed for its magnificent jewelry, the brand has expanded its offerings to include watches, accessories, handbags, hotels and fragrances. The first fragrance offered by the brand was Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert in 1992.
Designer Bvlgari has 54 perfumes in our fragrance base. The earliest edition was created in 1992 and the newest is from 2015. Bvlgari fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Annick Menardo, Alberto Morillas, Jacques Cavallier, Sophia Grojsman, Beatrice Piquet, Carlos Benaim, Sophie Labbe, Olivier Polge, Daniela (Roche) Andrier, Nathalie Lorson and Jean-Claude Ellena.
