The first time I smelled this I loved it, it is my favorite at the moment. Need lotion to pair with it though, probably last longer.Gave it a 4 because of this.

Light and warm, calming and perfectly spicy, I'm in love with this fragrance. I do hope they come out with a body lotion soon.

I thought it's a quite unusual smell...very spicy but sweet(not too sweet) and light. It does smells a bit like Black Cashmere but does not have musky smell so it's more soft and wearable scent.

I so much aggree with some of the previous reviewers. It sounds so good but it smells just 'blah'. I do too find similarities with Black Cashmere, but it seems like Omnia is jealous of Black Casmere and tries to become like it but doesn't really have the nerve nor does it have the same 'genes'. It ends up smelling somewhat like something that a lady with no interest in fragrance whould wear, just because she "has" to wear perfume.
On the other hand, I like the bottle.
(By the way, I do not like Black Casmere either, but at least it makes a statement!)

Yum! Subtle spicy, woody incense. It reminds me of softer versions of Costume National Scent and Black Cashmere (especially the cedar), both of which I also really like. This might be a good choice for those wanting to try a dry spicy scent. It's very soft on me; I have to spray a lot on me to really smell it.

I have a sample of the parfum and I LOVE it! It's like DK's black cashmere but more wearable and subtle. I found it lasted all day on me, but I only noticed on the first day. After that I must have gotten used to it. I hope they come out with a cute Christmas set... I have to say it's one of the best woodsy feminine scents I've experienced
EDIT: I wore this in a high altitude/cold region and the chocolate really stood out! It was great!

I very much wanted to like this b/c I was intrigued by the notes of this fragrance, white chocolate, tea, mandarin, and saffron. It sounds much better than it smells. I can say there is nothing extraordinary about this scent. I don't smell the chocolate or the mandarin at all. It smells like a cheap drugstore, old-lady type of perfume.The only thing that I like is the bottle. Very disappointing.

First, the bottle is EXQUISITE and I was very eager to try it...and I'm glad I did. I love the musky-spicy notes mixed with the tea and the white cocolate! On me, the fragrance is definately soft, and while it is not neccesarily long lasting - (but on my skin nothing lasts very long), it is going to be my new scent for the fall! Plus, my husband loved the chocolate notes on me! It definately makes me feel energized and chic when I wear it.

About the same smellin' excitement as an aerosol can of unscented Tresemme hair spray. Despite the promise of the components that make up this scent (saffron, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, mandarin, masala tea, white chocolate and Indian wood), it's a generic blast of pure nothing on me. A slight fruit note came through for about two minutes, but was quickly beaten into submission by The Nothingness. Unlike several others, I found this one lasted quite awhile, and after three hours, I sorta dreamed I could something other than aerosol chemicals--something warm, thin and boring, like a stale five-year-old Lipton teabag and hot tap water. Weird, this inability to truly smell much in Omnia (until long after it has dried down) has happened with one other fragrance--L'Artisan's Premier Figuier. Try before you buy.

Tried this on in the dept store and turned around one minute later the scent was gone.

I love the the scent of Omnia. The Marsala tea (cardamom, almond, etc.) is the strongest note. However, it has no staying power. I tried the lotion and the perfume together. It lasted about an hour.

I was very intrigued by the notes of Omnia (I read somewhere it means "endlessness"), so I tried and buyed it... and I absolutely adore it. I loved the sound of white chocolate in a perfume, and I do detect a faint note of that, but it's mostly got different spices and tea. I smell the spices and Masala tea more than any of the other notes. It's a pretty unique scent in a beautiful architectural bottle. The lasting power is nonexistant, practically. I can barely smell it on my wrists 10 minutes after applying, which is a shame. I find that I have to spray it on a lot. Other than that, it's a great non-offensive scent for work or after, and overall it smells incredibly good. It is one of my favorites now. I bought it because I love the white chocolate and tea notes in perfumes, but I can't say the white chocolate note is very well developed in Omnia. Omnia is a nice departure from florals and over-the-top strong orientals. It's light and more of a skin scent. I'm enjoying wearing it and it's close to the perfect perfume for me. Here is the press release from Bulgari on Omnia:

I have a sample of this from Nordie's I've been wearing on and off. This has a nice spiciness to it, and it smells quite modern. I had to edit this, since it took me a few days, but I definitely fell in love with it. The scent is just so different (perhaps that's also why it took a while to grow on me), yet light and not overpowering. I am proof that samples work where just a test spray wouldn't have- I never would have bought it without a sample to use for a while. My only issue is that it doesn't last very long on me (though I solved this by begging another sample and carrying it in my purse). I believe I'll be wearing this most of the fall and winter this year. My husband also liked it and he is generally anti-perfume. Oh yeah, and it smells ENTIRELY different on skin than it does in the bottle- I feared it when I just opened the sample and took a whiff. I'm sure this scent isn't for everyone, and I think that's a good thing! I do like more unusual, yet light fragrances, and this hit that mark square on. It's a lovely wearable oriental. You could definitely do night or day with it.

This is a nice fragrance, but a bit too foody for me. Perhaps it is because I like to cook with a lot of spices. In fact, my mother commented that it smelled a lot like the marinade for the Cuban Adobo pork tenderloin I made that evening. Ironically, part of that recipe is comprised of ginger, coriander, cumin, orange juice, brown sugar, black pepper, and a touch of cinnamon. I later discovered that many of these notes make up Omnia. Sorry, I just don't want to smell like my dinner.

What a pleasant surprise after this past Spring's disappointing White Tea fragrance! Omnia is soft, yet distinctive. I can detect the mandarin, almond and even white chocolate notes on my skin. And the bottle, while a bit cumbersome to use, is quite attractive. I don't know if I would actually buy this--the SA's at Nordstrom have been very generous with samples--but I do like it. The only question I have is: What is the next frontier of fragrance smells? Omnia has white chocolate in it; another new fragrance boasts soybeans. We've also seen wine and gingerbread notes this past season, to name a few. What will be the next big thing? Tree bark notes? Alcohol notes? Yeah, I sure would like to smell like a hungover rock musician! And while I do celebrate the creativity of perfume and the use of exotic notes, I hope the industry doesn't push the envelope too far. Afterall, perfume should smell like, well--like perfume. However, Omnia is a good example of innovation in fragrance to heighten our senses, not overwhelm them.

According to Harrod's, "Bvlgari’s new women’s fragrance, Omnia, blends precious spices, mandarin, lotus blossom and white chocolate in a highly addictive, light modern oriental fragrance." Omnia is available in Eau de Parfum concentration in 3.4 oz and 1.3 oz bottles and can be purchased at harrods.com (worldwide delivery from the U.K.) and select Nordstroms.
My recent skin test revealed a fragrance of sheer, sugared woods. Just as my heart sank at the somewhat generic fruity opening accords, the fleeting headnotes yielded to the more promising spicy sweetness of Omnia's oriental heart. Don't be swayed by the mention of white chocolate: this is not a gourmand offering of the edible variety--rather, a light oriental sweetened with an enveloping halo of flowers. The overall effect is not unique and striking enough to justify the purchase of a full bottle, although the stylish bottle itself deserves an honorable mention.
