My Experience with Bvlgari Splendida Iris D’or Eau de Parfum Spray for Women:
I loved using Bvlgari Splendida Jasmin Noir Eau de Parfum Spray which I had bought after testing a sampler. Thinking that bvlgari splendida iris d’or would be an another addition to my favourites list, I ordered this scent online. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a total disappointment for me.
It is an olfactory powdery floral fragrance. I adore floral fragrances, but some notes do not gel with my body chemistry. Sadly, this particular scent happens to be one of them. I would describe this perfume as sophisticated and mysterious to my senses. It is a luminous fragrance. The regal allure of iris and tonka beans makes this scent luxurious and sandalwood makes it rich and sensuous. Packaging is elegant and sophisticated, the golden theme plays on, making it all the more luxurious.
Lasting power of the scent is decent, three to six hours. Three hours on pulse points and six hours on outfits. Has a note which sets me off. Top notes are leafy, lead by heart notes of iris and mimosa, with a base of powdery sandalwood, vetiver and tonka beans. I have retained this perfume, but I rarely use it. The moment I spray this scent on my pulse points, I feel a bit heady. In my opinion, this scent is dominated with some notes which do not suit me. I am unable to judge which notes irritate me, but guess it is either top or middle notes. I love wearing perfumes on pulse points, but I cannot use this one on my pulse points. I tried wearing it on my outfits along with other perfumes and that too is not okay with me. The moment I spray it, I feel irritated. People who are sensitive with certain notes or scents like me, please do sample it before buying. This happens to me at times; I am just not able to like or get used to some scents, however good they maybe. This perfume is surely an adorable one, probably not made for me.
Pros of Bvlgari Splendida Iris D’or Eau de Parfum Spray for Women:

Cons of Bvlgari Splendida Iris D’or Eau de Parfum Spray for Women:
