Love! I own & love all 5 Omnias (orig Brown, Crystalline, Green Jade, Coral, Amethyste). They all have a beautiful soft creamy base, with delicious notes added -- the added notes tend to match the color of the bottle & name.
The distinguishing feature of the Omnias, for me, is their soft creamy base -- it's almost like VS Heavenly, Armani Elle, or DKNY Pure -- and there are a few gourmandish notes added to each one. Green Jade, for example, has pistachio as one of its added notes, Brown orig has chai tea & white chocolate, Amethyste has violet, Coral has bergamot, goji berries, hibiscus flower, water lily, pomegranate, cedar wood.
For me, Crystalline is the best of the 5. It's the most neutral -- contains bamboo & lotus, light wood, and nashi (a pear-like fruit). It's a sweet, soft, clean, fresh, white-musky skin scent. Reminds me of CK Truth or D&G Feminine -- soft, natural, sensuous, and beautiful! And it lasts very well.
However, I love and recommend all 5 Omnias. Unfortunately, I think the original brown Omnia has been discontinued, but it's still available at online discounters, I believe. The bottles are unique and pretty -- you can tell how much you have left -- but being round, they do tend to tip over easily.
PS -- on The Bachelor, the season with Sean Lowe (winter 2013), one of the bachelorette contestants (the "villian" Tierra) was shown doing swooping all-over sprays of perfume a couple times before the rose ceremony or an interview. Her hand practically wrapped around the squatty bottle, but we MUAers agreed that she was holding an Omnia bottle. Which color was debated -- some thought it was Crystalline, but I thought I could see a flash of green during one of her liberal sprays, which would have made it Green Jade. Regardless, we agreed she was using one of the Omnias.

I am surprised at how unremarkable this turned out to be. It starts of sharp and clean and gradually dries down to a very dry, blonde wood scent. Smells cheaper than it should. There's something bright and synthetic in here that doesn't jibe with me. May be great for the office, though.

Bulgari Omnia Crystalline is a lovely fresh, woody floral fragrance that is casual enough for everyday wear and sophisticated enough to wear to the office. It's a very light, transparent scent that is much more a crowd-pleaser than a statement-maker. It's very affordable and can be found at discount stores/sites as well as department stores. The only drawback for me is the poor lasting power. It's one of those scents that is so light, it's hard to over-spray. I spray it frequently 5-10 throughout the day so that it lasts and spray it directly on the skin. To increase lasting power I recommend layering with lotion and/or spraying it on clothing. Overall, I really love this scent because it's very feminine, fresh and a no-brainer that I use when I'm in a rush. I highly recommend.

Omnia Crystalline is like nothing to me. It's like a blank. I don't get floral, or fruity, or soapy, or anything at all. I never remember it, and it never grabs me when I sniff it. Very forgettable and unremarkable.

So feminine, fresh but also a little woodsy to my nose. It's not described as woodsy but on me it has that warmness. It's understated so if you like the perfume to stand out a little, this may not be for you. I would say this is a soft fragrance. Someone called it 'almondy', I could agree with that. I just don't like the bottle that much. I would repurchase.

If I didn't get this for free from my company, I would've never bought it. It is pretty but it is very light, you won't be able to smell it on yourself nor will others. It's like spraying lightly scented water on.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This scent is wonderful in the first 5 minutes. Then it develops into something that is just too watery and cool for me. Its very fresh in a 'barely there' kind of way but it makes no impact whatsoever. It's only saving grace is what when I spray it on together with the Omnia Coral it bizarrely creates a great scent on me (not overly impressed with the Coral either) so all is not lost. Wouldn't buy it again though.

The first time I ever smelled this, I was at a rather nice hotel that used Bulgari products in their bathrooms. You could call that the gateway into Omnia Crystalline for me. Suddenly I equated this wonderful smelling substance with this hotel (which is something I'll probably never forget) and had to track down the fragrance.
Omnia Crystalline is an interesting scent unlike anything I've really smelled before. There's definitely a plant base, but it's sweet, fresh, and I think another reviewer put it nicely - it's like the air after a summer rainstorm. But a little more heady. My skin picks up on nothing floral (which is perfectly normal for me - I always get the "darker" notes) and seems to bring the bamboo (if I had to guess) to the forefront. For what it's worth, I normally *loathe* floral scents and run away from them about as fast as my legs can carry me - the vast majority truly do smell terrifying on me - but this one works somehow.
I would be surprised if I smelled this on anyone under the age of 18, but I started wearing it around the age of 21 and felt perfectly comfortable doing so. It's young and sophisticated. I don't pick up on "old lady" from it at all, but then, I was introduced to the scent in a young and very hip environment, so my viewpoint is obviously different from someone who wanders in off the street and gives this a sniff for the first time.
Not a fan of the packaging, but it pumps well enough.
Would repurchase if I ever run out!

This is a very day to day smell. VERY light. not longlasting but very fresh and good smell
UPDATE: Not really my smell. Really floral a bit too much. not so chic. And goes away FAST

I instantly fell in love with this scent when I got a sample with a Sephora.com order about 6 years ago, and it has been my signature scent ever since. Since in my area/age group Bvlgari perfumes are often overlooked in favor of more popular scents, Omnia Crystalline makes for a unique, standout personal scent - I get compliments from women of all ages whenever I wear it! It is light, fresh and feminine and has airs of both youth and sophistication, which makes it perfect for a "young adult" (as opposed to in-your-face and fruity like most scents marketed toward teenagers, such as Vera Wang Princess and Aquolina Pink Sugar).
Quick Take: light, airy, fresh, feminine, clean, unique
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Hazel
One of my alltime favourites. The first thing that comes to my mind when I smell it is that it's so soft and fresh, it's almost ethereal. It's very clean, soothing, and definitely not an "in your face" scent. I'm finding it hard to categorize it - if I had to describe it somehow, I'd say it smells like the air after a summer rainstorm, fresh and peaceful. It's slightly sweet and watery at the same time.
I personally wouldn't say that it's particularly sexy, although I have been complimented by many guy friends, and the hubby loves it, too. (My best male friend called it the MILF fragrance, because according to him it's hot and grown up at the same time).
All in all it's a great everyday scent you definitely can't go wrong with.

This is a very "Safe for work", slightly floral, watery, clean, inoffensive fragrance. Anyone could wear this, but it has more of a mom feel to it, and actually reminds me of something my stepmother would wear. In fact, I'm thinking of giving her my travel size bottle as a belated Christmas gift. Guys could definitely pull this off too. I do like this fragrance, and wouldn't mind smelling it on others, but it's just not for me. The bottle is beautiful though!

I got a small sample of this and several other perfumes a few months ago. I have used it a few times before and remember liking it, and then I lost it because the container is so tiny. I just found it again tonight and put it on. Wow! I am probably going to buy the full size because this is just the smell I've been wanting. A little spicy, a little fruity, a little sexy. Very unique! Love it.

I'm a guy who has never enjoyed wearing fragrances "made for men". I find most are too spicey, smokey, woodsie or just too "masculine" in character to reflect my personality. For years my go to fragrance was "Caylux" by Perscriptives. I love body sprays like "Malibu Musk" & Pear Glace. I attented a makeup class a while back and was given a fragrance sample of Omnia C. in a gift bag and I've been hooked since. I think it suits me perfectly. It just a super fresh fragrance that leaves me feeling super scrubbed clean without being overly feminine. In my opinion anyone could wear it and smell terrific.

I recently started wearing perfume about a year ago. I could never get used to it because my chemistry turns perfume real strong. I have since found a few that suit me with this being one of them. For reference I like floral and fresh scents. Perfumes that work with my body oils are Stella by Stella McCartney, Clinique Happy, Aqua di Gioia, Jennifer Aniston's, and last but not least this one. This has the best of both worlds for me. It starts out fresh and clean and crisp but it is quite enticing and complex at the same time. After a few hours (About 5 for me) It turns warm and soft and floral, very feminine and modern and still enticing. Overall this is a great every day perfume to wake you up in the morning and make you feel relaxed and feminine in the afternoon. I bought 2 bottles because I love it sooo much!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Medium Eyes: Blue
This perfume is so sexy to me... a perfect transition away from Stella McCartney... I breathe it in and just sigh... It definitely has a powdery tinge at the end. Would not have thought of this as floral, because those drive me nuts! Its almost like the female version of my favorite male scent, Bulgari Aqua pour homme.
I always sneeze when I first spray this on for some reason, but that goes away after the alcohol lifts.

I feel rather sheepish that my reason for not adding this to my collection is that my boyfriend, who doesn't love almondy, powdery scents, didn't like it much. He wrinkled his nose in a dismissive manner. When there are so many beautiful scents in production, I fear this is enough to put me off purchasing. However, this scent is quite magical.
Omnia Crystalline somehow manages to be light and tenacious at once, showering the wearer in a sweet powdery cloud of shimmery-smelling platinum dust. I fully realise that shimmer doesn't smell, and the platinum dust I am referring to is purely metaphorical, but I don't know how else to describe it. This scent produces a halo effect.
The note most apparent to me is almond, though I suppose I get the bamboo too. There are very light, blond woods at the base of this scent, and it all feels very angelic and luminous. The apple and pear are barely there, and I'm surprised it's categorised as a floral aquatic scent, as for me it's a gentle powdery gourmand.
Omnia Crystalline is a great any-wear scent - perfect to throw on before going out the door, and it is pleasing for the whole day, returning many times over, though always being in the air rather than detectable on the skin.

Omnia Crystalline is uplifting and warm/soothing at the same time. I think what I love most is the bamboo note, although I can't exactly pinpoint it. We have bamboo in our backyard, and Omnia Crystalline is reminiscent of my backyard after a late-night rainstorm. Fresh, clean, watery, soft yet crisp, kind of masculine (accidentally sprayed too much one day and worried I smelled like I was wearing cologne) yet sexy. And, best of all, boy-approved. My guy friends get a whiff of my hair after a hug, and I always get compliments. I don't even want to bother trying other perfumes; I think this one is mine forever.

A fave of mine, sharp, slightly masculine, fresh, clean, modernist, contemporary, fun & sexy.. not in a teenage way. No lollies or fruity sugary tones in this one THANK GOD, and the florals do not overpower you, they gel with the citrus wood really well. This is my love and I can tell you that quite a few single men asked me what it is because they liked it.. seriously attractive perfume, trust me, I am no Barbie :) hehe

Still kind of deciding about this one. Tried it on in-store a few times and thought I LOVED it. Smelled so fresh yet sexy. But after I bought it and wore it, it didn't seem the same. There's a sharp note in there that never seems to soften on me...stays kind of sharp all day. If it weren't for that, I'd like it a lot more. DO love the small-size spray that's available though. Everyone should make those!
