My top rose scent. Bulgarian rose otto smells just like the rose in Fleurs de Bulgarie . Deep ,rich ,velvety smooth red rose which leads to a clean ambergris base .Simple, beautiful and you can smell the qualtiy of ingredients. Fluers de Bulgarie is the only rose scent I know that smells like real rose otto. It is the best.

The perfect rose perfume that starts like Sophia Loren and ends like Gina Lollobrigida. I am someone who has difficulty with rose fragrances, but this has been my favourite rose for a very long time – though I reckon that may change after I get to sample some Rosines, which I haven’t had the chance yet. When I first bought Fleurs de Bulgarie, I perceived it as an exaggerated goth rose. As I got to sample some other roses, however, my understanding of Fleurs de Bulgarie has changed as well. I now think of it as a very fine rose that has a transparent complexity and some muted sophistication. On me, it is not one bit powdery or soapy, just clear and velvety. It is a rose that gets its depth from a rose plant only. I am very happy to see no hints at the rose jams or honeyed blends of the Middle East - mostly because I live in the Middle East and probably perceive those smells culturewise differently. Fleurs de Bulgarie is just a very dark, velvety rose in full with its green stem and thorns and some dew on its meaty petals. There is a very light medicinal note that adds the perfect dose of shadowiness. The drydown is a fascinating, big red amicable rose revealing a very natural, deep sweetness, not one bit flat. It's not obstrusive and projects a wonderful red rose waft for approximately 4 hours. Very smooth and never too big.

This is a beautiful dark rose over the ambergris base. It is my favorite of the Creed line. It is very rich and warm and regal. It is easy to imagine a queen wearing this one.

A few years ago I enter a niche perfume shop and asked to try Fleurs de Bulgarie. The lady in the shop curiously looked at me and smiled.
I don't know if she thought that I was not the type of woman who can stand wearing this scent. Of course she was polite and sprayed my arm with FdB. It gave me an awful reaction. It was like dipping my nose in an incredibly concentrated melted stoke cube.
It was so strong, so ladysh, so high society dressed up for the grand ball.
I stepped out of the shop thinking that at least I knew what FdB was.
There's nothing like testing to know.
I sniffed my wrist again and I couldn't smell it anymore! So weird.
After 15 minutes or so wandering around the city streets I smelled an incredibly alluring scent like rose and fragrant refined amber and somethingelse more I couldn't describe.
It was like an ultra-feminine elegant dreamy trail in the air and I started following it sniffing this trail in the smog until I lost it. Strange.
Suddenly it re-appeared and to my great amusement I had to realise that I was following myself! Silly girl!
Since then I have great respect for FdB even if it's not a fragrance I would wear freely at any occasion.
It is POWERFUL. Be careful when applying this.
It's a very well blended perfume with a few essential strong notes.
Roses first of all, dark baroccan ripping roses. Then it comes a cloud of ambergris, powdery for sure, but not in an exagerate way.
Then a soft, animalic but mellow musk comes out and blend with the rest of the composition. For the left part of the life of this scent on my skin all these notes keep following each other in a round. Very intriguing.

There's a lovely rose in there somewhere, but it's smothered in mustiness. It smells like an old bottle of perfume, where you're not sure if it's just a dated style of fragrance, or it's actually gone bad.

Fleurs de Bulgarie by Creed smells like what a very black, gothic rose might smell like. Frankly, I don't smell much of what most people would consider as a traditional 'rose' scent-- nor do I smell much 'powdery' notes. What I do smell is a bitter musk type scent mixed with sharp, raw smell of rose stems. It is an interesting fragrance-- very unusual. There is a hint of rose in there somewhere if I breathe deeply enough.
Very intriguing scent but I don't think that I would want to smell like this. Creed should rename this "Gothic Rose" or something like that.

This is a strong, nostalgic floral blend. Everyone keeps mentioning the musk and amber in the reviews, but I don't smell any amber. The 'musk' I get is probably white musk, because it's Powder City. The powdery element is so strong I thought it might be incense. It's way more intense than the roses themselves, roses being maybe a third/a quarter of the blend, and barely detectable in the drydown. Before it dried down I also got something like almond/heliotrope/vanilla. It's nice enough but I prefer fresher, more natural smelling scents. The balance between powder--rose just seems out of balance to me here.
UPDATE. Meh, I recently revisited this scent. So weird! This time I got a gorgeous jammy rose, very elegant and pleasant. A little too refined for my style, perhaps, but I liked it a lot better this time around! It pays to revisit scents down the road!

Fleurs de Bulgarie is my first experience with Creed, and I have to admit that the introduction has not been a totally pleasant one.
This is definitely a rose scent, but it has a boozy undercurrent that seems to come up on my skin which smells a tad bit odd. I've been trying to love, and trying to wear this scent, but it hasn't been an entirely losing battle.
If I do try it on, I have to use a very, very light hand in order to wear this, and I find it much more tolerable that way (and a bit prettier as well).
My favorite thing about this scent is the the longevity of it. It definitely stays where it's put.
Please try before you buy, and exercise caution when applying.

Well, firstly I bought this as a sample from The Perfumed Court, which is one of the greatest finds on the web for perfume IMHO. I love this perfume for it's rose complexity. It's a "dark rose" so to speak, that is exquisite. The rose really comes out during dry down. You don't need to apply a lot.
It's a heavier perfume, but I'm wearing it anyway tonight to a college basketball game, cheering in the student section with my Fleurs de Bulgarie on ;)

This one is like napping in a rose garden. It's lavish Bulgarian rose over a true musk base. Interestingly, I associate this fragrance with New Orleans, as I first wore it there. It has the right lavish extravagance for that town! This is a treasure.

This is a sexy, rich rose scent that unfortunately I find a bit too perfumey for my tastes. For a rose-amber-musk combo, I much prefer Lancome's Mille & Une Roses and Art of Perfumery's Number Seven. This one is stronger, richer and dirtier than the other two (I think the added ambergris does this). It's a bit much for me personally.

One of the best floral scents ever! The Bulgarian rose smells extremely natural, and the ambergrise+musk drydown prevents it from overpowering the scent with floral sweetness. A fantastic floral scent, I think it can be suitable for men too, if applied lightly. Its also one of the very few fragrances on the market which contains a high percentage of natural ambergris.

I can't possibly put it better that the previous reviewer. But I will say 'oui, oui!'

I have samples of this fragrance and the Fleur de THE rose Bulgarie. And I still do not understand the High rating for The rose bulgarie compared to this one. This fragrance is a deep, rich rose with lots of body and charachter. This one is stunning. While the other Rose De The bulgarie is a simple tea rose fragrance. This fragrance is far more superior and I am just in love with this one. It is like laying on a bed of dark red rose petals. One of the BEST rose fragrances I have ever had the pleasure to test. And I wil be geting a full bottle. Just AMAZING.

I absolute love this scent -- my favorite in the Creed line, in fact. Originally created by Creed for Queen Victoria of England in 1845, this scent is rich with roses, in fact roses from Bulgaria, which are smaller and contain more fragrant oil that other roses. Hence the name, Fleurs de Bulgarie. Joining the rich scent of roses is green tea and citrus. I always say this scent is like resting in a rose garden. I have given this scent as gifts to two friends recently, one male and one female, in limited edition Creed leather atomizers I bought at the Creed boutique in Paris. If you want a fragrance that says "royal elegance", "purity of ingredients" and "quality that lasts for all time," I recommend Fleurs de Bulgarie.

Fleurs de Bulgarie - Bulgarian roses with ambergris and musk. The middle rose notes in this are just beautiful. My problem is the rose doesn't last long and it gets more soapy & musky smelling upon drydown. This is the first Creed that actually lasts long on my skin. If it were not expensive I might purchase a bottle, but at Creed prices, I'll pass.

Creed FdTRB looked at the clock, realized morning was long gone, evening had arrived and it was time to dress and go out. The music gets switched from Chopin to a smoky Ella F. cd, she rummages through her closet and chooses a plush, dark crimson velvet Balenciaga gown and a heavenly pair of strappy Bruno Maglis and the transformation is complete. Fleurs de Bulgarie emerges for the evening. This is a sumptuous, rich rose with an almost Caron like sensibility. I believe the tonka musk distinguishes this from other Creeds and gives it an almost buttery quality. Yes, it is soapy, which normally would have me running, but the deep, sexy lushness keeps it from having that clean, fresh feel which fatally marks most soapy fragrances as unappealing for me. One of the sexiest rose scents period and certainly one of the sexiest Creeds.

Well...now I know what a "soapy" rose with a "powdery" dry-down smells like and that I do not like it. I thought Creed would be elegant, but on me, all three samples just smell fuddy-duddy. I'm not super-young either...

This is so gorgeous. It starts out
as a fresh musk, then the rose comes out, a very deep lovely rose,
then the dry down on me is a deep,sensual ambergris and musk.

I bought this product thinking it was Rose Bulgarie. I paid $90.00 for a one ounce bottle. When I placed it on my pulse points, it initially smelled like roses. It then became a powdery old lady gift paper type smell. I will be returning the product.
