Bvlgari Pour Femme is a feminine classic which will adorn you just like precious jewellery. The delicate floral bouquet opens with bergamot, violet leaves and orange blossom. In the heart dwells luminous jasmine Sambac picked at dawn, when its scent is romantically soft. Jasmine is followed by sensual mimosa and always feminine rose. The base unites powdery coldish iris, musk and sandal wood. The fragrance was created in 1994. In 2006 it was re-launched in a new and more luxuriant design. The face of the fragrance is charming Kate Moss.

The nose behind this fragrance is Sophia Grojsman.

Bvlgari Pour Femme Fragrance Reviews

Our love affair began in 1994 and we're still going steady and strong. In a league of its own. Yes, I cheat on Bvlgari here and there but absence makes the nose grow fonder. I love you Pour Femme perche mi fai sentire donna. You complete me.

This is beyond gorgeous, it's a sumptuous and purely feminine floral with a hint of wood. I adore it!

I sprayed on paper first and the first notes were pure violet, on the skin it comes across as a pure mix of violet and rose.

The drydown is powdery, just a little sandalwood, just a little musk and the soft fragrance of the flowers. This is such a beautiful fragrance that it has to go up with my favourites!

Rose and jasmine. It's very rare for me to like a scent that's heavy on the rose, yet I have to admit this is the epitome of femininity, even if I wouldn't personally wear this. If you don't like rose, don't even bother testing this.

Words like 'classy, cool, conservative, feminine' come to mind when I wear this. Since Rose Essetielle is a big love of mine (thought it had to grow on me first) I gave this one a try, too.

Tart raspberry surrounded by fluffy purple iris & violet. A tinge of bergamot & a good bit of carnation freshness lend it a fresh 'n tangy cool purple vibe all around with a slight powder-poof edge.

About an hour later more of the white musk & heliotrope (powdery, just a touch more vintage femme now) are apparent. Alas, it is not for me. Purple florals have to have something very different going on (i.e. Galliano's fizzy aldehydes) to keep my attention. Not my style but a well done, beautiful perfume for those who are into these notes more.


--CAUTION: feels like something about the synthetic peach or powdery purple florals in this hurt me the same way Gucci's Guilty (peach/lilac) does, so IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE lungs take it easy with this one!

--Sillage?: Good
--Longevity?: 6ish hrs with 3 sprays
--(tested 3x)

This surprised me... in a bad way. Instead of a sexy, feminine violet, I got strong iris with a spicy carnation edge on top of a hairspray musk. The touch of peach and spice is definitely Sophia Grosjman's signature. I did like the violet in the long drydown, but that was all. Unfortunately, a no go.

WOW... this is more like a masculine floral, like Fleur du Male. Lots of woods. On my nose it is all about iris and orris, from start to finish and very much in the vein of GF for Women. iris, iris, iris... it loves me and I love it in return, happily.

I enjoy this luxurious smelling perfume. I don't know how Bvlgari always manages to create expensive smelling fragrances.
This one is very powdery. Mostly I sense violet and iris. At first it was very strong and a little weird in my opinion, but it calmed down just fine.
It makes me think of silk, cashmere and other luxurious materials.
Exquisite!

I tried this today at the perfume shop. It was the last one I tried (on a strip) just as I was walking out the door. It caught my eye because I saw the beautiful classic bottle sitting on the shelf and Bvlgari is such a classic. As I walked out of the shop I sniffed the strip and loved it. I thought that I should get my shopping done and then smell it again. As I finished I pulled out the strip and it was just a lovely sent I drove back to the shop just to spray it on my wrist. It is beautiful straight out of the bottle and as it mellows through the hours (very good longevity) it continues to emanate the most wonderful warm sweet smell. I have put it on my want list and think I may have found my signature scent.

This is a very beautiful perfume, it's something I imagine a naturally stunning, demure woman would wear, someone classically soft and feminine with exquisite taste. That kind of woman that gentlemen scramble around opening doors for and fighting over. Soft, floral, timeless, ageless, abit powdery and soapy...it has presence, and it embodies the kind of lady I once aspired to be. Unfortunately it hates my chemistry, because 15 minutes after spraying it on, this scent starts to smell like vinegar on me! I have no idea what went wrong...but it could be the heavy musk and lily-of-the-valley/rose/violet combo. So far I've found that floral-type fragrances rich in musk has that tendency to smell sharp/sour on me (Narciso Rodriguez and Idylle are other examples). It may smell bad on me, but I would still highly recommend this fragrance, just make sure your skin does well with musky florals.

I love woody - rose - violet blends, and this is no exception. But me and bvlgari fragrances stay on different levels. They are too ethereal for me, I'm staying too low for them..I can't really manage to reach them I don't know how to explain it, they live a life on their own but in another dimension than mine, so we can't understand each other

It's strange to me how many people have used "elegant" to describe this one. I find it very comfortable and casual. Actually, all of the Bvlgaris I've tried feel more like jeans and happiness than black dresses and starched shirts. This one is definitely similar to Rose Essentielle. Unless you love one, you probably don't need both. Re has been on of my go tos for a long time, and I enjoy having both.

Pf is like Rose Essentielle with the patch removed and a major helping of jasmine and tea added. My skin tends to amp up jasmine. So, take that with some salt. Rose Essentielle is more sour and a little less creamy.

I do think the bottles for both are classic, heavy and gorgeous. I wish more perfumers went with minimal designs and glass.

This is the color of blush. Light, refined, understated elegance. This is the Dom Perignon of perfumes, a lovely blush Chablis. And although it isn't the drop-dead gorgeous boldness of other Sophia Grosjman perfumes, it is heartbreakingly, breathtakingly beautiful.

When I wear it, I see very light, translucent pink. Soft, like pink satin ballerina slippers. Layers of chiffon. All of the notes so seamlessly blended, it's hard to distinguish one particularly. The violet, rose and iris get along so gorgeous...high class.

I love the scent of this straight out of the bottle. It's just sweet enough, elegant, perfection. I keep smelling it and smelling it because it is so good, and then about 2 hours later, I smell it on my wrist and it smells like clothes from an old basement. I guess that's just my skin unfortunately. I didn't buy a bottle for this reason and would love to find something similar without the odd dry down.

Even though the oh so versatile Kate Moss was chosen as the face of this lovely scent...for me, this is the Monica Belluci of fragrances. Womanly, seemingly ageless, elegant, full figured, modestly confident, sensual and disarming. It has a powdery floral warmth to it that beckons in a manner most passive yet inviting.

That is what I like the most about this perfume. It isn't vying for anyone's attention...it doesn't need to. It shall and is meant to be appreciated by anyone the wearer INTENDED to have near them. Definitely a romantic, beautiful and soft perfume.

This fragrance is pure elegance, perfection and class.

Appropriate for any occasion or season, you'll feel instantly feminine and beautiful when wearing this glorious fragrance.

Bvlgari pour Femme opens with a fresh and clean bouquet of flowers with subtle citrusy undertones. It is mostly floral from beginning to end. Slightly powdery in the drydown yet somewhat rich and woodsy, this fragrance concludes beautifully.

Although Bvlgari pour Femme isn't entirely unique, there is something very sensual and expensive about it which should appeal to those that seek a sophisticated and distinguished fragrance.

This has been my go-to scent for a few years now. Appropriate for essentially all settings, wears well, and makes me feel pretty, no matter whether I'm in jeans wandering along the beach or dressed up for a major presentation. Pretty without being overly sharp, on me it dries down to a very nice white floral finish that is not overwhelming. Need to be careful with application - can be easily overdone. I only wear one product at a time - i.e. either the perfume or the body lotion - the two together are waaay too much for my nose.

I am amused that another reader commented this was a good bedtime scent. Tonight I crawled into my PJs, wrapped my cashmere robe around me, and felt like I needed a warm and comforting yet pretty scent to wear as well. Bvlgari Pour Femme is what I decided on.
This is my first time wearing it. It was a blind buy months ago from a discount retailer and I just haven't felt the urge to wear it until tonight.

I bought it while the weather was still warm and tend to lean more toward light citrus or clean scents during summer. I remember at the time, it reminded me of Chanel Cristalle.

But tonight, I skipped the Black Orchid and the Gucci Guilty (my usual snuggle scent) and opted for this delightful juice. Cedar is high in the air tonight and my nose is a little off so my beloved Black Orchid smelled like wet rotting flowers! Pour Femme is a rose knock out tonight. I am feeling so much love for this scent right now, I am afraid it may have to become my daily wear. It's just beautiful.

Clean rose without being too soapy or too musky. There is a light powdery note but it's very, very subtle. It's light enough to get away with a one spray walk through if needing to be office friendly or give it a three shot for a bit more impact. I took a 3 shot: hair, back of neck, and one to walk through and it's definitely not overwhelming.

New favorite!

Bvulgari Pour Femme is certainly not a perfume for every woman. It is a super classy perfume for a special lady who knows how to carry herself with finesse and elegance. This perfume can be worn day or evening (or night). It has been and will ever remain a classic perfume. It is a very Italian ambiance scent. The perfume is symbolic of the distinct and exquisite jewelry created by The House of Bvulgari Gioelli in Rome. I have been wearing this perfume since it was placed on the market. Signed, Ma Che Profumo!

Transmite la elegancia del chanel no 5, tiene la ligereza del eau premiere; más no es igual a el.

Es un perfume muy femenino, muy elegante, yo lo noto muy alegre y fresco, al menos así lo siento; percibo mucho el frescor del te, y la violeta.

Es sumamente persistente y tiene muy buena proyección; me gusta mucho utilizarlo en verano.

I tried so hard to like it. The scent really is lasting on me and a quality perfume. But unfortunately it's that darn rose. I can't handle any rose scents. It just reminds me of my Grandmother's rose hand soap. She loved rose. If your a lover of rose you will certainly enjoy this. And it's got great lasting power. But for me unfortunately nope! Someone else had mentioned this and at first I did not agree but now looking back it does have a smell of rose scented fingernail polish remover and again it's the rose. I just have negative associations with Rose not that it's a bad odor or anything like that. It just evokes some not so good memories for me..

I love this for daywear. Very light. At first I thought it smelled like fairy washing up liquid (not the end of the world but not what I expected from Bvlgari) however it changes very quickly on my skin and becomes a fresh variety of florals. Very nice and not heady like I find a lot of perfumes. This I would wear to work as it's not very invasive and doesn't seem to last that long.

Tested and tested and still get nothing but faint rose plus the alcohol itself. Same story with Jasmine Noir (faint Jasmine) and the Violet (water). Lots of artificial chemicals maybe - don't have the problem with any other house.

I really enjoy this. Violet! It's ultra feminine and a little bit powdery when it dries down. There's no chance in the world that anybody will find this overwhelming as long as you are reasonable with application. I'm not sure if I got an older bottle, but on me this does not last more than 2 hours. Maybe you will have better luck with that.

I'm fascinated by how diverse this perfume is to people. Some people especially notice rose and jasmine, others fruit or spices. Some say clean, some say musty, some say sweet, others not. Nearly everyone agrees on violets and powder, and on the femininity of the fragrance. But while some say classic, understated and versatile, others say boring. A few people get good longevity but most don't.

Me, I say violets, a strong tang of tea especially in the opening stages, some mixed florals and a hint of fruit, some slightly musty powder, and a warm and comforting base. The violets lend the fragrances a nostalgic, feminine air but the tea keeps it refreshing and prevents it becoming sentimental. Sillage and longevity on me are only moderate, sadly.

In terms of character I find Bvlgari pour Femme calming and relaxing. If I'm out and about, or at work, I prefer something that makes more of a statement. But BPF is lovely on a warm evening. After a strongish opening it settles into a gentle veil, almost a not-perfume. It amply fulfills Sophia Grojsman's imagining (which she mentions in a YouTube interview) that a busy woman who comes home from work and still has an evening of cooking and chores ahead of her, needs a dab of perfume to get her through and 'make her feel like a woman'. I can't imagine heavy hitters like Paris or Tresor working like that, but Bvlgari pour Femme certainly does.

Beautiful!!
I mainly pick up violet, jasmin and mimosa with just a slight touch of lucid vanilla. I agree with previous reviews that it has a mild soapy touch to it.

This perfume is quite strong and the sillage is rather heavy, one spray will do fine. Lasts for around four hours.

This perfume started my perfume journey. I did not like at first. I did not understand how something that starts out so plasticky could dry down so beautiful. I almost put it on the scrubber list. It dries down to a soft mimosa and violet with a ligh touch of a sweet rose powder. It is not for someone who wants instant gratification. Classic. I love it.

This is so pretty! I have loved everything I've tried by Bulgari, they make beautifully crafted fragrances. Pour Femme could be Chanel 5's quiet sister. It's so feminine and innocent, which is very sexy. I think this would be a great wedding & honeymoon fragrance, also nice to wear to bed. Yet very professional, too.
This would be a grat gift, I think it would be a sophisticated fragrance for any woman- for a college student, graduation, bridal shower, bridesmaid's gifts, mom, grandma, wife, girlfriend. You can't go wrong with it!

Bvlgari Pour Femme seems very classic to me. It is a common powdery soft floral, it does not possess the ambition to be anything that it is not - not stunning or unique, not even memorable; just nice and subtle, a little shy.

Violet and iris are most prominent from start to end on my skin, soon after woods and roses emerge, dry down is musky vanilla. As I already said, it is a pretty standard fragrance which would make a good choice for the powdery iris lover who would like to smell beautiful without making too much noise.

This smelled nice in the bottle, but when I sprayed it on, I was overwhelmed by sickly sweet violets - like wearing a packet of parma violets for the first couple of hours, which really put me off. Eventually, after 2-3 hours it settled into a much mellower, warmer fragrance, which was much nicer.

For me, unfortunately, the initial overpowering rush of violets was too offputting, but if you can stick through the initial stage it could be worth a try

I did not know quite to expect after reading reviews. For some it was to strong, for others barely there. The opening for me was the best. Very sweet violets, which I love. 30 minutes later, I can smell the tiniest bit of jasmine and rose. Being very light, this would be something I would wear to bed.

I was quite fond of this fragrance -- violets, violets, violets! very soft, very feminine. But when I met my husband, he couldn't stand it -- said it smelled like a grandma fragrance (probably the powdery dry down). I wear crisper florals now. At the perfume counter, I'll smell this one for old times sake, and honestly, it's still so beautiful but now that I've moved on, it's somehow a little dated like my favorite cashmere sweater. This is a very genuine smell, lasts all day, and it doesn't "try too hard" like many of the newer Bvlgari fragrances. It's not offensive, but neither will anyone ask about it.

It is one of the very few roses I can wear.

Very feminine fragrance and very very elegant.

The rose is not a bulgarian or morrocan one, but think of the scent of dewy fresh yellow roses. The rose note is uplifted by violet and peach, which give it a fresher accord. Iris powders it and gives it warmth, while carnation gives it a spicy turn.

A classic!

This is an intimate scent. Lovely complex and very feminine. But it's not noticed by many, since it's only you who can actually smell it. My mother-in-law introduced me to it, and I find it very mature and sophisticated. In the beginning it's mostly flowers although I sense something lemon-ish, but after 15-30 minutes iris and pepper emerges. The dry down is non-existing on my skin, since the scent has disappeared long before. I htink this goes well with a fur coat, high heels and a beutiful dress.

On my skin this fragrance only develops a very intense violet note, which is almost bitter, reminding me of licorice. Sometimes it is so strong that it gives me headache. Sometimes I tolerate it better, managing to let it develop until the powdery drydown. It is too strong for me. But I can imagine it very well on an elegant woman who is in love with strong violet fragrances.

Bvlgari pour femme is dominated by rose and fruits. it is very sweet without being sugary. is almost gourmand, but restrained. it has an intriguing smell, mostly because it is a very unique combination of delicate and extremely prized florals that the industry of perfume has used ever since, a flash of delicious and savory fruits and a sprinkle of spices enveloped in musk and fragrant woods and roots.
it is rich and glamorous, honest in its elegance, feminine and tasteful.
a scent that raises to the praise of timeless fragrances such as chanel and guerlain, from the point of view of sophistication. it has the bulgarian rose as a trademark scent, thus staying as a romantic, young at heart perfume, making it very distinctive among other scents.
I personally enjoy it. it's very sunny and independent on my skin.
I also took into consideration that it is a strong reminder of Tresor. I thought the same thing! I always thought Tresor to be extremely sweet, in a cloying way, unique, but not very lovable. Tresor is rich, is like a chest full of gold and rubies and sapphires and is gourmand all over. The funny thing is that I always smelled it directly from the bottle, having a very low tolerance for its odour, and my mother rarely wore it. Tresor was heavy and quite domineering. Not my type. to say I didn't like it, would be an understatement. even though it could match my skin, my nose was just intolerant, always reminding me of a woman drenched in honey with shiny flowers ans bits of fruits stuck to her hair, better worn in winter than in summer.

a classic floral scent with a powdery finish, however this goes towards old very quickly, its very daytime social event an unobtrusive nice scent that doesn't stand out other than to say im elegant and expensive which isn't bad just a bit boring in its appropriateness , it screams garden parties, weddings, baby showers, perfect if you need a scent for those kinds of gatherings.

"Bvlgari Pour Femme" (Parfum)

I just bought the parfum (extrait) today and couldn't be happier. It's kind of hard to find actually, so if you can find one, I'd suggest that you take the parfum cause even the EDP got nothing on the parfum version (66% vol).

The overall blend of violet, iris, rose, vanilla is just beautiful. Most of us may see it as a feminine fragrance, but somehow I think any guy can also pull it off when worn on the right occasion (before bed, relax, or dressed in suit and bow tie or tuxedo), because the parfum version is very concentrated and rich. It's almost unisex.

It stays about 10-12 hours on my skin. The silage is above moderate. The scent is just stunning, arresting and unmistakably very Bvlgari.

Timeless and classy.

Score: an easy 9/10

This is my go-to scent for daytime formal gatherings, such as weddings. It's floral, pretty, classy, elegant and most important - unobtrusive. Some have described this as lacking in complexity. They are right to some extent - that's precisely why it's a useful scent to own. Much as I love oriental spice bombs, they aren't great to wear when you're sitting next to Auntie Mary in the pews singing Bind Us Together on a Saturday morning!

Totally feminine, I read in a magazine that a girl who was wearing it always got great compliments from men.
I love this too. A bit mossy and classic rose, it's heaven !
The only (big) problem is ... it fades away too fast !! Spray, 30 seconds, almost gone (sad)...
I bought EDP not EDT. Even more sad.

The perfume counter lady told me that if I "liked Jasmine Noir, I would love this". I don't see a comparison other than they're both produced by Bvlgari. This stuff is super powdery and rosy. I find it skews "mature". No creaminess in this for me, just dense floral. I like my rose more sensual or green/fresh. A nice fragrance for a classy mom or conservative 20-something.

I really love the almost creamy opening! I have been looking for a soft and creamy scent, slightley soapy. On me, it's the perfect opening.

A soft (strong, but still soft if you know what I mean..) creamy and very very feminime beginning. It's really lovely and clean. As many already said, its a very clean, beautiful classic perfume.

What puts it down a bit for me is that it turns very floral after an hour or so. Floral is not what Im after right now, and it's VERY floral, nut just a hint of floral, but it's TRULEY a clean floral scent. It has a nice sillage and an impressing lasting power as well.

Thumbs up for the beautiful opening, but I don't really like the floral heart/base. Will consider buying it anyway, have just tried it indoords. I am curious about how it handels hot weather. I would like to use it in the spring or early summer with a nice stylish dress. That is if the flowers could calm down a bit, not a huge fan of sharp florals.

this is not going to be a very intelligent review, but for those of you who like Kenzo Amour but find the sillage/longevity/projection to be a little weak like me, you might want to try this.

To my nose, this is Kenzo Amour on crack. Strong!!

Whitney Houston's favorite perfume. Who knew! Gonna have to try some, although I think I did once and it didn't agree. If only I could sing like her, wait, maybe look like her. A beautiful shining miracle gone too soon. As Costner called her. I would have thought she would be a Bond girl.


Edit: I got a bottle of latest Notte and I wrote my review on that. I will tell you that I like it very much. I still have to try this one.

This rich yet delicate powdery floral was my signature fragrance for several years when my kids were small, we'd just bought our house and money was too tight to indulge extravagant perfume habits. Beautiful and versatile, with solid sillage and longevity, it was a happy choice for a frazzled young mum who wanted to smell classy on a limited budget — a sensible fragrance investment, if you will, which may sound like a backhanded compliment, but even now with plenty of perfume bottles to choose amongst, I often reach for my lovely and reliable Bvlgari. Violets, rose, iris and jasmine dance prettily on a warm musk-benzoin-woodsy base, and it makes me relax, gives me an injection of optimism and confidence, and best of all it makes me smell so darn good. :)

I absolutely love this fragrance. I used to wear it about 7 years ago and after trying out many, many different frags this one has come back into my life. I always receive tons of compliments when I wear this and even if I did not I wouldn't care. I usually wear a heavier oriental and hate florals but this one works and works well.

I cannot believe how many notes are listed here, because I can only smell a few.
This is light, simple clean smelling floral. Jasmine, tea and iris. It is too diluted then if many other notes are involved.
Silage-wise not worth it and after 1 hour poof it's gone.

Pretty. It truly is just that, pretty, lovely, beautiful. The 'pour' should be dropped; simply calling this fragrance Femme would say all it. Unlike some perfumes, this is a scent to be worn -only- by a woman. Men can admire it, but only on said woman, (or perhaps as a parting token on their shirt collar).

Initially I get powdery violets and iris. In an hour or so that settles and the rose comes through. Real rosey-rose and jasmine combined with a pleasant warm under base which I can't quite separate into distinct notes. This continues on for quite some time, until the flower notes fade to a whisper and the base notes grow warmer with only the rose left to keep them company.

Pour Femme doesn't announce itself five minutes before you walk into the room. No, it follows behind, a delicate epilogue to your graceful entrance. It's soft, yes, and airy, but not in a barely-there way. Like a classy lady it stands out without needing to be loud and calling all the attention to itself.

Personally, I find this to have a certain vintage air to it. I feel that it could have easily been worn in the 1950s. (Of course it would have to be packaged in a delicate little flacon and called something like Rêves de Paris.)

Final verdict: Just lovely.

To me it smells of violets first, and later of roses, always powdery. It is very interesting the way one type of scent (violet) gives room to the other one (rose). Well Sophia Grosjman is a master of perfume structure, she really knows how to make a scent evolve in steps. I find the opening too sharp, which often happens with violet, but it gets quite nice afterwards, simple and nice. Do not find it as nice as other Bylgari perfumes, Blv, Omnia crystalline and Omnia Amethiste. To me Bvlgari pour femme comes next. But, as I said, no doubt a masterly crafted scent.

Very similar to YSL Paris, just a bit softer and smoother. I was hoping for the classic "makeup smell", but got none of that.

Way to sharp and flowery for me. The sandalwood in it is nice though, but that´s all.

Talk about Bvlgari Femme is talk about feminine, and most women like feminine. People says that's same like Paris YSL, but i think Blv Femme more feminine and sweet powdery than Paris YSL. Paris more fresh and soapy than Blv Femme. I have both, and I like Paris YSL more than Blv Femme. What about you? If you want sweet powdery ending you can choice Blv Femme, but if you like fresh soapy ending go ahead for Paris YSL..

I had written a review about this perfume 3 years ago. I really liked it but I felt it was not collaborating well with my chemistry. Recently I tried it again, and fell in love...

I don't know what's up with me and soft-airy scents lately. I guess they feel like "me". I like them to be noticeable but soft, like a dewy morning breeze. This is exactly what Pour femme is. A dewy morning breeze. It is funny how I find my self daydreaming about early spring mornings and late summer evenings when I have this on. It is funny that I feel an unconscious connection with my childhood, even though the smell is really womanly, really captivating. This is balance. And this is why it feels so comfortable.

As the other reviewers have described very well, it is a floral with a warm -but still cool in a way- base. Jasmine adds a beautiful sweetness, the rose is very elegant and watery, the mimosa gives some powderness along with the violet... And the cool/warm base on the background is a very well balanced blend of benzoin styrax, amber, iris and sandalwood.

I use this on my upper arm instead of my wrists, due to high body temperature.

Pure beauty and innocence.

Bvlgari Pour Femme is the essence of elegance. It harbors a scent without being heavy, is present but not overwhelms.
Smells like violet and tea.
Not a perfume for a young girl, but does not smell like old lady.
It has good fixation, half durability, and leaves a trail elegant.
A special parfum forever.

I had such high hopes for this one. But sadly, it's just not for me. The opening on my skin was a big punch of violet and it pretty much stayed that way but for a a very slight hint of baby powder in the dry down. It struck me at one point that the combination left me smelling just like baby wipes! Not an offensive scent by any means just not one that I want to pay good money for!

This is pure cool violets and powder to me. It's really feminine and wearable but there's something a little juvenile to me about it, I think the violet element just reminds me too much of parma violet sweets mixed with baby powder. Nice, but only your favorite flower is violet.

I was looking for a new summer fragrance. After much umming and aahing,(and testing), I finally purchase the Pour Femme 30ml EDP.
I truly love this scent, it smells fresh and light. V. v. feminine. It makes me feels clean and womanly.
The one odd thing about it is the sillage, it seems to disappear quite quickly and yet in the evening when jumping into bed, I still get faint whiffs of it. Nice.

This is a beautiful fragrance that bounces of my body.

I don't get the references to Chanel No. 5 because I literally cannot tolerate the smell of No 5. This is not that.

I do smell the rose, but maybe because it is enhanced with Iris, Violet, Strawberry and green Tea, it does not smell old or cloying. I don't smell anything in common with No 5. The rose is predominate in dry down, but not left alone.

Beautiful floral for people who can't hang with White Floral, like me. My favorite floral by a mile I've tried so far. Normal staying power, not great, but not weak.

Not sure if I will add to my collection as I like fragrances with more excitement, but I will strongly consider this if I decide to get a floral.

What a disappointment! This initially smells like a watered down version of Chanel# 5 (which I can't bear) and as it fades it takes on the same unpleasantly rubbery odor of Bvlgari Black,

It may just be my chemistry which is unfortunate because I truly love Rose Essentielle!

My mom used to have it's shower gel and lotion(not the perfume though). I remember that I liked to sniff the bottle, but not dare to use it. And in my young nose I feel that it's the most beautiful, luxurious, elegant smell I've ever encounter.
Those are qualities you can always counts on Bvlgari.

Today I bought a decant, and the memory is refreshed. And I'm really glad that I bought this decant.
I think this is a staple for every woman after they reach certain age (i.e: 30-ish)

What a beautiful parfum. I bought the EdP today and I fell like a stone for this scent. Unfortunatly it just lasts about 1 hour on my skin, so this bottle will be empty real quick. I feel like a rich, sober, elegant woman wearing this. It got wonderful flowers and a airy hint of pepper in background - not very sweet and with a touch of spicy's.. love, love,love this...

En magnifik doft. Jag köpte EdP'n idag och jag föll som en sten för denna doften. Oturligt nog så håller den bara ca 1 timme på min hud, så flaskan kommer att tömmas i ett nafs tyvärr. Känner mig som en rik, sober, elegant kvinna när jag bär denna. Härliga blomnoter och en aning om peppar i bakgrunden, inte speciellt söt eller sötsliskig vilket är bra. Bara älskar denna doften..!!

I smelled it today and (unless my memory is drug abused :)) I find it surprisingly close to "Paris". Has this been mentioned before?
I can't like "Bulgari pour Femme":(.
It is inferior to the one it strongly reminds me of, plus it is best representative of a category of perfumes I call, "perfumes bijoux".
It is more like an accessory really, not a soulful creation (which is fair for a Bulgari perfume, isn't it?).
By the way, did you know that Bulgari is Greek by origin?

I am glad I gave another Bvlgari a chance, after selling several on ebay due to poor sillage and longevity. I just made sure to get EDP version.
This one is by no means a sillage monster, but for a soft fragrance it is quite substantial on my skin in terms of sillage. Longevity is average: 2-3 hours.....which is normal for this type of scent (I consider longevity whaterever the amount of time the top notes hold).
Nothing out of this world, but very beautiful and nicely done floral, very elegant and feminine.
Great for hot summer days.

I had a bottle of the fragrance. It's a soapy, classy and elegant smell, you leave a trace behind you as you walk, the perfume lasts long on you and on your clothes.

I don't know why but the smell annoyed me somehow. I had a pot full of hot boiling flower perfume oils in my mind (???) and I couldn't help it! Strange but true. The same thing was with Arden Beauty ;) But I do admit it's a smell worth trying. It fits for a woman about 35 or so, an elegant, posh one.

This was a nice floral, soft and powdery, yet for quite a while in the middle stages of this I could detect a coffee like scent. I think it was a combination of the orris root and green tea, either way, it's different, and interesting. The violet begins to take centre stage as it wears, with a strong partner in raspberry. There is a hint of heliotrope also. I can't really imagine this on a teen or very young woman, this is for a classy woman who has seen a bit of the world and is comfortable in her own skin.

How can a "shy violet" be so persistent among these earthy scents? It is incomprehensible how it can hang on to the bitter end with such strong competition of amber, vanilla, sandalwood and musk.Fascinating but hard to understand. While I can admire this perfume to a certain extent I feel that the violet scent dominates too much and it gets kind of soapy on my skin after a while. Thought it would be a more complex perfume. Can imagine that this would be a perfect scent for formal meetings with white blouse dark blue suit and a chic scarf. For a self-confident and elegant woman.

Sweet, slightly powdery raisin smell captured my attention when I first sprayed Pour Femme. It is quite different from the other relatively speaking quieter Blvgari perfumes targeting the female consumers.

It is a rather linear perfume with the initial raisin flavour becoming more and more subtle and the body of luxury gourmand sweet rose soap smell comes forward to play.

Pour Femme is nice but somewhat lacks of something. It does smell more luxury then the rose scent or the tea range from Blvgari, but somehow I find Pour Femme is kinda pushed to be Pour Femme.
Nice scent anyway, the quality of ingredients is there and I find it goes well with many black dresses that you might wear when you don’t want to make too much a impression but at the same time also want to look great.

Barely sensual, if not at all. Very Rosy & Flowery with a pinch of tea & spices lingering. This is a luxurious and comfortable scent.
Its sweet, classy, charming, tender, & elegant - I would imagine a young fashionita wearing this to a modern ball in the city.

I think its best for cold weather/temp. It didnt smell terrible when worn in the tropical heat, but it made me feel stuffed and hot. Almost like drinking warm syrup when your'e super parched.

I find this scent to be the 'sharp yet soft' kind - it has personality & presence but its a little too plain and pretty for me personally.

projection: moderate
longevity: 6 hours +

Edit : Taking a sniff at my arm a while later, I got overwhelmed and felt a little sick. I'm not sure what it is...I feel like the syrupy sweetness is choking me, and the spices aren't helping. Its like the suffocating smell of frying spices for me almost. This is definately not for me, but worth a try (luckily, mine's only a mini).

I smell both violet and rose most predominantly in this perfume, but as it dries down, the iris and sandalwood add woody, earthy warmth to the scent. I do detect traces of lily of the valley and a hint of musk, and there was a delicious pop of raspberry in the first few minutes of wear that made me smile.

Pour Femme is light and clean, yet delicately complex. It's beautifully crafted and, in my opinion, quite a wonderful creation. I've added this elegant fragrance to the list of perfumes that I want in my collection.

i tried this again yesterday after ordering it months ago, trying it once, disliking it and never touching it since. oh my, how quick to judge i'd been! maybe it's the case that i've kissed a lot of metaphorical frogs since then and it's made me realise the prince this was all along...?
it's a really classy, elegant and grown up floral with bags of beautiful powder. at various points i get the iris, the carnation, the musk, the raspberry, the heliotrope and the bergamot but that's fleeting as it's so beautifully smooth that there's no jarring of my senses at all. i imagine this is how oscar by oscar de la renta smells to people who love it. this was on my swap list but not anymore *mwah ha ha ha ha ha (evil laugh). saved it just in time *phew!

"Oh my goodness!" It is just devine! Such a wonderful,classy, fresh floral, that just oozes with refined taste. It will never offend anyone around you. On the contrary, people will be quietly admiring the sillage you are so kindly sharing with them. They will not be able to pin point where it is coming from but, they will deffinitely notice something breath-taking. It whisperes happiness like a bright, happy spring day that has extended into a memmorable evening. In my own experience, it is a must have. Or, simply worth experiencing at least once in your lifetime.

Strangely, given the amount of notes allegedly in this, all I can smell is roses. Beautiful roses more beautiful than Rose Essentielle, and a little powderyness and fresh femininity. Reminds me of Gaultier Classique a bit, volume turned down and more chic, more for grown-ups.

EDP Review:
Opens with violet leaf and violets. Soft and violety if you will but not powdery in the top notes. A shimmering field of clear violets.

Heart is a general floral, and I mean that in a positive way. A delicate and sweet floral that reminds me of things that are white, warm, and soft and bit powdery. The opposite of dark or sultry.
The drydown is a bit different, it is full of sandalwood and musk. There is actually a slightly bitter, spicy edge to it that I really like.

I really like this, it is simple but beautiful floral, dare I say very feminine and ladylike. The lasting power is very, very good, and I really like all the different stages of Pour Femme.

No need to describe, so femenine, elegance and sensual. It's different from Rose Essentielle a little ,Pour Femme doesn't have blackberry scent. but I love them both and I can't stop smelling my skin! I Never get boring to wear this one. <3

I love most Bulgari perfumes I've tried, including this one. But whereas I can wear BLV all day, this one has to be sprayed onto clothes that I'm able to remove during the day, like a cardigan or sweater.
Must be the violets but it can give me a headache wearing it on my skin.

This is one of my favorite straight-up florals, and I don't usually go for them. I love that it is so fresh and sweet, but isn't too much. It also has that smell of confidence & money. I find that it smells a lot like Perry Ellis Classic, you know, the one from 1985 that isn't mentioned anywhere anymore!? It was very similar. I have ordered a sample of the old Perry Ellis to see which I like better. If they are close, I will go for Bulgari as it is SO much easier to find. I think it is lovely.

3/07/2011: Upate - I rec'd my Perry Ellis Classic, and they DO smell VERY similar, but I prefer Bulgari. PEC is sharper, less sweet, and might be stronger, but overall, Bulgari is more well-blended & classy. I'll just put more on ("just put more on, moron!")...hee hee hee! I am funny. I also find that Bulgari is "cleaner" somehow, even though PEC is soapier. Huh.

taste it today after waiting so long ..

i dunt know how to start this but, i was expecting ANOTHER scent .. better or worth , but not as how it smell like!

the opening is almost citrusy but quiet about it, with touches of fruity sweetness and a HINT of bitter green ,the heart is a straight up floral to my nose its rose and violet are most prominent, but you’ll notice the jasmine as well.the early stages it is mildly powdery, but the longer it is on skin, the more powdery it gets

Bvlgari Femme isn’t quite what I’d call sexy, but it has a little edge of something earthy and dark in the base that i found very attractive and not typical , in short i can say its NICE but not breathtaking fragrance .. kind of fragrances that makes you comfortable but not noticeable ..
the bottle itself is truly nice and feminine i luved it so much, much better than the fume itself ..

not sure if i will get me a bottle ..

First of all: INCREDIBLE staying power. Deadly. I could still smell it on my wrist the next evening. It just doesn't leave.

However... It is boring. It's just sticky and monotone with warm flowers in the first 2 hours. The dry down is quite alike Rose Essentielle but Pour Femme doesn't have Rose's fruity freshness. It's heavy. It's feminine, yes, but in a coquettish way. I liked it because it's likeable, safe but these very qualities are the ones that make it boring. I'd think it suitable for 30 to 50-year-old ladies, not for 20s.

I adore this scent. I have several Bulgari perfumes, and at first I thought it was sort of insipid, but it has become my favorite, especially after a shower before bed, I love to spritz it on and smell like a princess. It is definitely a soft floral, like a warm evening with orange blossoms and roses and nightflowering jasmine, but it is so subtle. It doesn't scream smell me, it is more intimate. It lasts a long time on me.

I'm amending my previous review upon trying this one for the 2nd time...
The top, still synthetic, smelling of lacquer in the bottle and the first 2-5 seconds on skin.
It then morphs into violets, sweet and heavy which waft around for about an hour or so before fading away to nothing.

I do live in a dry climate, so maybe this one needs humidity to work properly.

As a side note, I accidently put Mauboussin over this one on my wrist and the combo is very nice. The strong oriental/Mauboussin cuts the sweetness of the violet and gives BPF a more exotic longer lasting presence.

Maybe Bvlgari should consider a flanker...

This is powdery and elegant. It's classic in a not animalistic way, but in a clean way. At first, I got a hint of Tresor: that liquor note. After some time, it dissapears (luckily) and it becomes a background fragrance that does not draw much attention, but it's pleasant, feminine and timeless.

I first discovered Bvlgari Pour Femme on a trip to NYC a few years ago. I wanted to buy a new fragrance and just randomly spritzed Bvlgari from the tester and immediately knew I had to have it! My mom was right next to me and said it reminded her of the smell of mimosa flowers. They grow wild in southern Europe so she always had them around while she was growing up. The interesting thing is they don't list mimosa in the notes, but maybe the combination of the top notes smell like mimosa! Who knows :) Either way, it smells beautiful!!!

This fragrance is the epitome of romantic, when I smell it, that's the first thing that comes to mind. This creamy scent reminds me of women in hats and long flowy ivory coloured organza dresses having tea in an English rose garden. I was doing somebody's makeup one time and she asked what perfume I was wearing that smelled so good...so yes, it draws compliments. :)

This fragrance is elegant and feminine... extremely feminine! If you want the perfect floral fragrance (that's also very long lasting and has good sillage) this is it... simply lovely. ♥

Pour Femme is one of those gorgeous and complicated floral fragrances that are pure delight to wear and so much fun to test. I can see this beautiful fragrance at a summer wedding on a beautiful young bride. This fragrance is feminine, very attractive, elegant and expressive.

Beautiful violets on the opening are balanced very well by orange blossom and bergamot. There is VERY subtle peach and raspberry, almost impossible to detect. I did not feel carnations right away but they came very shortly after the opening and amplified the spices especially pepper. The spices and carnations are not overdone here. They just add enough twist to make the opening exciting. There is a smooth transition to the heart notes. Rose, jasmine and heliotrope are pretty strong sweet florals but the iris/orris keeps the composition cool and the lily of the valley adds spring fresh touch. This combination definitely creates very pretty strong florals without going into sickly sweet scent which could happen with jasmine and rose. I love that the flowers in this fragrance unravel in multiple stages. I feel more than just top and heart, it is like a waltz of flowers when the new flower steps into the centre stage and then steps back to give another flower the spot-light.

The dry down was also multi-staged to me. First it started settling into the powdery vanilla but then about 1.5 hours after the application, the scent turned into resinous (benzoin/styrax) mixed with cedar and sandalwoods. I totally agree with Sherapop on the strong presence of benzoin/styrax combo but I did not feel it in the beginning. They came only in the end for me. The base notes stayed resinous and woody with a touch of powder for the rest of the day.

Pour Femme is a floral masterpiece that I would definitely recommend.

This is glamour materialized into a fragrance. Is astonishing the beautiful smell that can bring the combination of Grean Tea, Amber, Musk, Jasmin, Woody Notes and Violet (these are for me the most prominent notes). I suspect that Grean tea and benzoin notes, maybe makes the fragrance a bit powdery, but this is the charming side of Bvlgari pour Femme.

I'm using my fifth bottle, I don't know why but it reminds me of Champs Elysees, it has also Violet and Peach.. I can't say anything bad about this, is addictive, longlasting, is a classic..

Bvlgari pour Femme is a delicate peachy sugared rose scent, perfect for a distinguished, classy lady. It is light and ethereal but at the same time memorable through its aristocratic character. This perfume would be wonderful for sunny spring days, cocktail parties, garden tea parties and other smart settings. The woman wearing it will not go unnoticed, she will fascinate with her fragile feminity and stylish charm.

Such diamonds are rare. Bvlgari Pour Femme sweeps people off their feet. It's good company when you're glad and it brightens up your mood when you're down. As where certain scents require a certain state of mind, this "Pour Femme" fits every situation. And just how classy it is... Simple as that: I love it.

I try a fake Bvlgari (when I was in college) and the smell is divine.. i really love the smell. Then I try the original one (well, I have a career now) and surprisingly, I found myself don't like it at all.
the smell is too soft, delicate even my nose can't detect it after an hour. The fake one smell so clean and sexy, but classy. Meanwhile, this one almost disappoint in every way. Don't like the rose, don't like the base notes, just hate it...

What we r enjoying here is a fairytale land where women in long lace dresses ride magestic white steeds through fields of flowers.bergamot,wetdripping oranges on trees and soft fuzzy violet leaves where the horse has tread.up ahead there is a lilgarden to itself.covered by jasmine vines with white flowers ready to bburst with their nectar.In the center of the garden is a beautiful double red rose bush that has roses the size of dinner plates with neon colored butterflys after their n4ectar.around the border r the lovely mimosa trees with their chartruse green leaves and powder pink spidery flowers with a fragrance thart trasports u deeper in.night begins to fall and the lady takes off her hat and looks to the east where there r uprooted irisis.they smell cool,fresh,and like they could come to life,qas she turns to ride home she picks up the scent of sweet musky wood which she follows back thru the fields.this is a fairy tale trasporting fume.An experience.Beware tho,u may just have to sniff ur wrist to bring u back from this fume journey to reality.One of the few perfect fumes!!!

Got me a free sample ( EDP) today, getting my daycreme, after trying it on my wrist yesterday.
First spritz, sniffing myself, confused me because of what (I think) must be the rose...and I usually don't like rose being turned into a frag. But what really, really, really stroke me was the trail it left behind once my nose was back where it belongs (right up in the air that is..(-:..).
Oh my...This IS Bvlgari and in its best dress, a powdery-pink one for sure (so I do get Zvoncica's balletshoes alright - and what a beautyful review she wrote on this one!)

I also understand what has been said about the lasting power...but...one should not confuse 'comfort' and 'habituation' with 'lack of sillage'...
If you're not sure about the sillage, just take a little walk outside and find yourself comming home in that comforting scent that welcomes you back.
I LOVE this one for its subtlety, for its purity. The nose that created this scent must be one that does breath in inspiration and does breath out devotion...
It's beautyful...

No jeweler/perfumer house is as consequent in leaving their watermark in their perfumes as Bvlgari!

No matter what scent of their collection you will try, you will always get Bvlgari.

As for 'Pour Femme', I think it's the most elegant and 'grown up' one of them all.

I'd buy this one for fall to enjoy my Latte Macchiato when the wind sweeps the rain against my window, cuddling up with a good book and imagining I had a fireplace...

Bvlgari Pour Femme opens with a burst of beautiful flowers (if these are the aldehydes Sherapop descibes, then sign me up) but it kind of fades into the background after that. I also agree with her that is has some complexity & uniqueness to it.

I find most Bvlgari scents to be beautiful, etheral creatures (with some notable exceptions) which are very light & wearable... this is not really my style though. I like an inital smack in the chops and a tap on my shoulder every now & again to remind me I am wearing invisible magic.

All in all, a very lovely scent and it would suit girls who are delicate, ladylike & pretty. Or ballerinas.

I am having hard time speaking (writing, to be more exact) about Pour Femme. And I will admit here and now, that I had certain prejudice that this is boring, tiny, soapy, look a like perfume. I acquainted Pour Femme several days ago. My shame was endless.

There she is, in the ball room with mirrors. Sitting in rocking chair made of oak. The ballet shoes are on her feet. I think she is a dancer, but I am not sure. There is a music playing from a point which I can’t determine. Spring by Vivaldi. It plays and stops from time to time. The beauty of her silence entered my mind. Like magician, like hypnotist, like fairy.

She made several signs with her hands when she saw me, and a voice, from I don’t know where, said: she was hoping you will come one day, to watch her dance, to applaud when music stops, to nap in her rocking chair.

The beauty of her silence entered my heart. Like divinity.

This is a really pretty scent. There are so many notes and they blend nicely to make a fresh powdery smell. It reminds me of the VS secret garden collection in the nineties. I don't know which one, but the aroma is reminiscent of that time period. This pairs nicely with BBW sandalwood rose.

This is a great and elegant scent. A kind of scent that I would like to have as a gift from my boyfriend. It smells very good: I enjoy the violet-peachy start, the well balanced rosy flowery heart and the woody, benzoine vanilla base. It is longlasting and is wearable everywhere daytime.

But I will not buy this one. I have so many other interesting fragrances with twists and turnes. With screaming topnotes, pounding hearts and sensual, almost sexual basenotes. I have strange frags that you really have to learn to love. But when you do, you'll love them even more. And you will never ever get bored of them.

If I was given Pour Femme I would appreciate it a lot and use it at work or just daytime, but I would never invest money in a scent like this. It just doesn't intrigue me enough.

Interestingly, I put on three Sofia Grojsman fragrances today whitout knowing it: Bvlgari Pour Femme, Yvresse and Volupte. The one that had twists and turns for me was Yvresse, (that I must have). This one is really good, but not as good as Yvresse.

One of my consistent "go-to" daytime fragrances. Have worn this for several years. Thanks to this website, I am discovering that I have the strongest preference for chypre florals and florals.

I would not personally classify this fragrance as a "show-stopper", it is simply beautiful and feminine. If you like classic floral fragrances that are complementary to your persona, vs overwhelming, then I believe you might like this. This fragrance is another that I consistently get compliments on (mostly other women). I wear it for daytime (church, office, lunch dates) when I want to complete my outfit and smell pretty, but not come on too strongly. Lasts throughout the day (one of my personal requirements; will not use a fragrance that I have to continually refresh all day).

I would describe it as truly floral, very feminine and totally classy (as a Bvlgari fragrance should be!!)

BULGARI POUR FEMME has a notable amount of benzoin/styrax (not sure which accounts for the distinctive quality of this fragrance, since the two notes so often appear together) presence that will probably turn aldehyde haters away in droves. On the other hand, aldehyde lovers should find much to love here, for BPF offers far more than just another bouquet of flowers (without, however, smelling anything like Chanel no 5...),

BULGARI opens with a touch of not-too-sweet fruit and spice, but the deep resins also immediately bind the powdery florals from the very beginning, imparting a je ne sais quoi quality to this longlasting edp with good sillage on my skin.

My impression from the comments of other reviewers is that on some skins benzoin/styrax resins do not cling. But on mine, they really do, making this a unique and worthwhile floral fragrance. I know of no other commercial perfume that offers anything like this beautiful resinous-floral amalgam. The drydown is a complex, ambery, slightly musky, and still resinous yet somehow powdery floral layer.

BULGARI POUR FEMME has both depth and complexity, worthy qualities which I do not often encounter in twenty-first-century perfumes.

This one had me confused. I had the low expectations of typical bland flower bouquet, but somehow I managed to be let down! Instead of quiet classic flowers, I got a little whiff of powder and - poof! - gone. Like magic. I sprayed a generous spray on a tester strip at Macy's, put it down two seconds to spray some Bvlgari BLV, and when I turned back, I couldn't find the Pour Femme tester strip! It literally smelled the same as all the unused ones lying about the counter. Perplexed, I tried this again with various papers and cloths and patches of skin. Same result. I swear that tester bottle was full of powdery water.

For something with so little lasting power and sillage, you might as well buy water. Much cheaper too.

What is there not to like about Bvlgari pour Femme? This fragrance is pure elegance, perfection and class.

Appropriate for any occasion or season, you'll feel instantly feminine and beautiful when wearing this glorious fragrance.

Bvlgari pour Femme opens with a fresh and clean bouquet of flowers with subtle citrusy undertones brought about by the bergamot and orange blossom. This scent is mostly floral from beginning to end, fresh and pretty carnation, violet, iris, jasmine, rose and lily-of-the-valley.

Slightly powdery in the drydown yet somewhat rich and woodsy, this fragrance concludes beautifully. The lasting strength was wonderful in my opinion.

Although Bvlgari pour Femme isn't entirely unique, there is something very sensual and expensive about it which should appeal to those that seek a sophisticated and distinguished fragrance.

Bvlgari Pour Femme is not a traditional floral perfume, as you may expect if you happen to read the notes before testing. Though it contains lily of the valley, rose, jasmine, and violet, it is not like any other perfumes I’ve tested whose hearts have been centered around those notes mentioned. Instead, Femme draws a little nectar from each bloom and keeps them wrapped up tightly with warm notes of sandalwood and heliotrope.

At first, Femme seems a bit bright and aldehydic. This is where the orange blossom is most present and where the jasmine tea seems most prominent, and a faint hint of green apple can be detected. Within minutes, however, the violet makes an appearance and things become softer, more powdery, and this tone sets the mood for the tender rose, which is a most welcome flower in this soft, old-fashioned bouquet.

The longer I have Femme on my skin, the more violet-y and powdery it becomes, slowly picking up sweetness as it hums along before finally trailing out of sight. Unfortunately, Femme doesn’t last very long – one can expect two or three hours of sillage at most, if sprayed only on skin, and, as is the case with most violet-based perfumes, the sillage is moderate at best.

While not a modern, fresh fragrance, as its bottle may suggest, Femme is not an “old lady perfume” by any means. Though powder is often associated with older women who’ve a taste for older scents, the powder in Femme is more closely related to the powder in Kenzo Flower; it is sweet and polite, never taking over the composition or smothering the flowers to the point of no return. This is an innocent perfume, yet a sophisticated one.

I chose this perfume when I was shopping and was 15 at the time. It is a very grown up, elegant, distinctive fragrance. I know it does not appeal to younger ladies but the smell is quite different and unique compared to what my teenage friends wore at the time, such as Impulse body sprays.... hmmm.. I would definitely buy this again, it is classic yet modern feminine and strong.

I always thought that perfumes with name 'Pour Femme' are boring as hell, but when I tried Lacoste's 'Pour Femme' I changed my mind. I loved it immediately.
So you can guess that I expected surprise from kinda places where surprises are extinct.
In few short words I'll describe Bvlgari's efforts as boring, feminine, predictable.
Although it appears quite a piece for those who just want to complete their image with fragrant finish, Pour Femme is very Bvlagri. It's light, barely there, but it still has some kinda signature in it.
Opening is very apple like, but this time nor candied, nor sour. That apple is one of my favorites to eat (but not wear, though)- that's floury apple.
Later subtle sourness and florals appear. It's very elegant, not strong, very suitable for office or any other situation. It's really a classic stuff, but too much light for me. (Well not light like Max Mara at least).

I am not a fan of this fragrance. I thought that the frag would be more complex than it is. It is nice but I don't think it anything that would stay in my memory. Its a mature scent and has a bit of a soap scent to it. It reminds me of Guerlain L'instant Magique minus the powdery finish.

How I wanted to love this but along with many other Bvlgari scents, it turned into a soapy mess on me. Don't get me wrong I like fresh smells but this literally smelled like dial on me.

Carnations, jasmine, almonds, vanilla... these are the scents of Pour Femme, harmonizing beautifully to create one of the most evocative fragrances I've ever experienced. It's indicative of every classical notion of femininity, while remaining completely current and modern. It's powdery, but fresh, sweet with out smelling at all of burnt sugar, and blooms into a crisp pungent flower that seems to stain the air around you. It's so beautiful.

Pour femme is a nice and elegant but flowery perfume, not to heavy or overwhelming.

This is a classic floral: rose, jasmine, carnation, muguet. Since I'm pretty much your "classic floral girl," I thought I'd love it. I don't, because somewhere toward the bottom of the heart is something that turns into the dreaded musty "old-lady face powder" on me, so that every time I try my sample I have to endure 20 minutes of smelling like mildew. I think it may be either the mimosa or the violet -- it may just be my skin chemistry and not everyone will react this way, but I can't wear it. Wish I could, because other than the 20m of mustiness, it's elegant, feminine, and completely unlike the currently-popular fruity-fresh-sweet pop-princess scents.

I like BVLGARI pour femme very much.it reminds me a bit organza first light,but this one is a bit spicy at the first and the floral notes are younger.if you're a young girl and you like floral perfumes,without being over powering and powdery,this is the right choice.innocent,peaceful,modest and suitable for every age.although about the seasons I think it's too floral to be wore at winter.in the heart I smell something sweet like honey.
Here it's mentioned that it's launched in 2006,but I think it should be launched sooner than that time.at least I got the sample 6 years ago!I may be mistaken,but I get to search the real released time on net to make sure.

Bvlgari Pour Femme opens with a scent of sour ripe apples on my skin. It is so fruity and edible! The drydown is powdery and flowery, but still very bright and sunny.

Imagine that you are walking in a garden of roses when they are all in bloom, wearing a long light pink dress and holding a red ripe apple in your hand. It is summertime and the sunshine makes you smile, wind is playing in your loose hair, you bite the apple and pick a rose to smell it. That's what Pour Femme is for me - romantic, classic and intimate feminine fragrance. Simply beautiful!

This is the perfume that Jane Austen must have worn! So romantic and feminine, light and at the same time noticeable.
Like a beautiful lace sewn on a Regency period dress, this will be the perfect compliment on a woman with sentimental and artistic personality.
Not young, not old, just pretty and delicate floral.

That's the best one I've ever had. Fell in love at the first smell. Stunning and surprising; this scent is soo different than any other. It's kind of fresh, but light, mild and smooth, and makes my mood higher.

A gorgeous scent, I've loved it at first smell and I immediately bought a large size bottle...but after a week of daily use I've found it "monotonous", so I gave it to my mother: fortunately she loves it!

I love this fragrance, not surprising, since I am a big fan of Bvlgari. I get a strong violet at the beginning that pops up now and again during the middle florals and after the dry-down to a nice musky wood.

very fresh, perhaps good scent in its group, too fresh for me. strange though it that fresh I find it heavier than BVLGari 'Jasmin Noir', which I tried at the same time. It has something I personally don't like

this is one of the most elegant perfumes ive ever had and smelled. i like it a lot, its feminine sophisticated, romantic, it could be my signature scent if i wasnt so obsessed with perfumes that i always want to use different ones:)
i like the bottle too, but i like simple bottles more

I'm a big fan of Bvlgari since buying BLV.

Bvlgari Pour Femme is very nice, quite subtle, but a little too light for me. I would buy it at the right price but for now I will stick to BLV.

Aside from the complexity of the stuff in it, this perfume is elegant and simple once sprayed. Pretty and sweet. As the description states, this is a feminine classic. I really adore Bvlgari scents. They are always light, but beautiful and womanly.
