Based on popularity of Bright Crystal edition, Versace and Euroitalia are launching a stronger version of the original fragrance with hope that it will thrill fans of the original edition. "After the amazing success of Bright Crystal worldwide we wanted to respond to the wish of very demanding customers and launch and intense version.“ – as stated by Giovanni Sgariboldi, president of Euroitalia.

Creative director of the Versace brand - Donatella Versace accentuates that this is a fragrance with enhanced intensity and longevity, the composition of which provides a vibrant perfume full of love.

Composition of the fragrance Versace Bright Crystal Absolu is signed by Alberto Morillas (creator of fragrances Bright Crystal edt, Versace Yellow Diamond and Versace Pour Homme), who enriched top notes with a blend of yuzu, pomegranate and accords of ice, refreshing the heart of raspberry, lotus, peony and magnolia. The base incorporates Acajou wood, amber and musk.

The flacon has maintained the same form in somewhat darker pink than the original perfume, while outer carton is embellished with white-grey ornaments. The fragrance arrives as 50 and 90ml EDP.

Photos for the advertising campaign were taken by Mario Testino, and face of the new edition, Candice Swanepoel, was presented on a luxurious sofa dressed in glittery evening gown holding a bottle of the new Versace perfume in her hand. Bright Crystal Absolu was launched in 2013.

Bright Crystal Absolu Fragrance Reviews

Centsless

Fruitier and sweeter than the original but still retains a fresh, refreshing citrusy vibe. The addition of raspberry and magnolia is a real improvement. This works so much nicer with my skin because it warms up and sticks around longer, and I can actually smell it enough to enjoy it. Love this! I think Absolu and Versace Versense are a great duo for warm weather. This one is girlier and Versense is a little more unisex.

I was interested to try this after liking the Yellow Diamond version.

Bright Crystal Absolu follows in the footsteps of their typical line with a lighter, shorter longevity. It definitely falls under the fruity-floral line with the sweet raspberry note.

Initially, it smells floral, citrusy, and aquatic. The fresh citrus wears off within 15 minutes. It has an almost grapefruit, tart impression. I think the pomegranate feels slightly bitter and sweet. It feels like a good introduction to tart notes due to the sweet and aquatic notes.

The lotus makes it aquatic, floral and soft. It's pretty well-balanced as far as floral, tart, and sweet. It's not my favorite perfume, but it's a nice, fresh fragrance for summer. Overall, this is a decent, but not earth-shattering fragrance.

Fruity floral. A bit overwhelming when you spray it at first, but after it settles down, it becomes sweet, rater than floral. It lasts a long time, and I don't say that often about my perfumes, because I just can't smell them anymore after a while, but this one really lasts!
Definitely a summer scent.

I have a miniature version of the original Bright Crystal. Bought this after reading several reviews here. Is definitely a wonderful perfume, much long lasting than the former one. It lasts over 4 hrs on my skin, but lasts over a week on my clothes. It was a bit clogging on my nose for the first hour after I sprayed, but eventually settled down to a lesser tone after that. I wouldn't recommend more than 2-3 sprays of this perfume as it might become overwhelming.
Otherwise, I absolutely love it :)
If you are looking for a cheaper version of this perfume, go for Guess for women (Pink bottle), not sure about the longevity but it definitely smells the same.

Starts off sweeter, less fresh and a bit more syrupy than the original, which is to be expected of an "absolu." I can smell the raspberry from the beginning which the tartness of the yuzu is a nice complement to.

Breezing through the comments it looks like I'm in the minority, but I actually think the original is a bit more distinctive and interesting. This does project more and last longer, but not miraculously so.

Both are nice. One's cooler, one's warmer. One's day and one's night. It's all about your preference.

I do agree that this one rather stays longer on skin than the previous ones,bright crystal edt.

However,I did not smell any trace of raspberry as stated.seriously,it smells exactly like the bright crystal edt.the only difference is,absolu is in edp n the pink coloured bottle is darker than the previous ones.

Nothing much to write about absolu.sadly,it did not suprise me much.

I find that often with fruity florals the fruit note is kind of indistinguishable. I have gradually started thinking of this as the "fruit salad" note. Yes, it smells fruity, but unless you come to Fragrantica to see what fruit it is "supposed" to be, you probably can't guess it correctly.

That is not the case with this perfume. The raspberry is strong and pleasantly identifiable. (It smells like the raspberry and blackberry gummy candies you can buy). The peony is soft and rosy and there's just a slight carnal edge of amber. I wish the sillage and longevity were better, but it is an improvement in both cases from the original. There's nothing groundbreaking here, but so what? It smells good.

Sampeld it on skin today. Fell in love. This is the perfect summer fragrance. Versace does it again. A quality fresh, fruity, floral fragrance that evolves during the day and lasts. (Much like my other Versace favorite, Versense). Going out tomorrow and am getting myself a bottle of this intense summery magic!

The opening is effervescent and fresh fruity, but after 10 minutes it turned sour and flat on my skin. It did last at least two hours. I think it is strong, but not really in a good way. In a pungent way. I like the concept and notes but I am disappointed in the execution. I expected either something more classy or more brashly sexy from Versace. This smells similar to so many other fragrances, how boring! I prefer a fragrance that is more distinct.

Not a fan of this one, glad I only had a sample. It is very light. All I can really smell on my skin is a lot of headachy sweetness and what smells like grass. May end up scrubbing it off.

This is fresh and fruity. The pomegranate is the dominant note at first and then it settles into the florals. The musky woody base is very light on me and I don't catch much of the amber. This is a very bright fragrance, it conjures the exact feelings I expected it to based on the bottle alone.

All I can smell is melting hot plastic.

And I`ve tried this out in two different stores, because I thought the first bottle I tried had gone bad.

But no. It`s SUPPOSED to smell like plastic.

I am testing this perfume right now and it is definitely stronger and projects much more than the original. To my nose it smells like freesia and I can smell the raspberries. It smells really good - fresh and clean and it has lasting power. Great for spring/summer. I'm not sure if I will get this because it reminds of Victoria Secret Bombshell which I already have a big bottle of. But it is nice - maybe I will get it in the far future.

I was going to buy another. bottle of the original for summer but I saw the Absolu version and got this instead. It smells so fresh, almost bubbly. I feel like I am spraying some sort of champagne cocktail on. I am so happy.

Very very nice, like it better than original. Original Bright Crystal is ok but I find it a bit synthetic. Absolu however smells warmer, deeper but still has that fresh thing going on. The amber in it reminds me a tad bit of Stella, but much lighter and youthful.

Agree with Chiquis, it does smell similar to Acqua di Gioia!

I've received a few samples of the original Bright Crystal over the past few months but ultimately decided to purchase the Absolu. First of all, the bottle is GORGEOUS!!! If you like pink and are girly girl like me then you will really love that bottle sitting on your dresser or vanity.

In my opinion both Bright Crystal and Bright Crystal Absolu smell just like Acqua di Gioia. The citrus stands out front and center. It's juicy and refreshing. Very summery... I can't see wearing this in the winter unless you are looking for a pick-me-up scent. I don't get much floral in this. To me it smells like pink grapefruit sprinkled with sugar, but in a very refreshing way. I just love it and can't wait to test it out this summer!

If you like Acqua di Gioia or are looking for a sweet citrus scent for this summer, then try Bright Crystal Absolu.

Felt nauseated from the stickly-sweetness of this smell after just 5 minutes of wearing it on the wrist. And for the rest of the day, I tried to steer clear of everyone, because I felt self-conscious of how much of a cloud of nauseating sweetness I was...

I really enjoyed the first one, But admittedly when I tested this one I didnt compare the two. From what I can remember the original smells very similar but different enough to be worth investing in if you are a fan of the first one. It is quite lovely. A lil deeper.

I used to be just so-so on Versace Bright Crystal EDT. However, it grew on me to the point where I wanted it. Then I saw THIS was recently released and it addressed my last concern about this Bright Crystal - that it wasn't strong enough.

Finally got it in the mail today and it is lovely! It smells almost identical - juicy, icy, and sweet. However, it's a bit stronger and projects more, which I love! Definitely worth it if you're a fan of this perfume.

It is indeed stronger than the original and also sweeter because it contains raspberry note.
So I like the Bright Crystal better. It's more bright and aquatic than this one.
The two crystals are quite similar though, even most notes are the same.
The strongest notes in this one are magnolia, peony and raspberry.

How easy can it be to fall in love when there;s some chemistry. Haha, can;t decide which Bright Crystal is better. Both have something interesting.
Absolu is drier than previous one in my opinion. I don;t detect much citruses just little hint, you can really smell the raspberry juice here. It gets more woody in the drydown. But is yet similar to the first one. It plays beautiful on my skin. Sophisticated but on the other hand roguish (in a positive way). I think this amazing juice can be easily signature. You can wear it with your hair braid and miniskirt but also when you go to the work or to have some fun in the heat of the night. I find it wonderful smelling. One word: BEAUTIFUL!
Love how Prettyswag described it, couldn;t have said it better. :-)

Stopped at Macy's last night to sample this. While I found it nice, I didn't find it as remarkable or original as some of Morillas' other compositions. The calone (fresh/aquatic note) I found to be at an annoyingly-high level, actually, fiercely in grips with the yuzu and pomegranate for dominance above all- at least for the first hour. One day I may do a full wearing to pursue it to the very end, but for now I have lost interest.

I like the original 'Bright Crystal' MUCH better- they should have left well-enough alone.

Flowery scent, not as intense as I expected. Unfortunately, I think my skin eats it very fast. After few hours, I can barely smell it. Something lacks here, and I don't know what it is. Maybe some more prominent ingredient? Fragrance is nice, but says nothing to me. Like a blank tape.

I just received this in the mail today from Macy's.com.The packaging is just beautiful and very girly and the color of the bottle is one of my favourite shades of pink.What I love about this fragrance is that it does not change much from the original other than the adding of raspberry to the composition.It is still icy,fruity but a little warmer in the drydown.I love fruity perfumes but a lot of the time they smell too cheap and to young for my liking.This is a classy fruity fragrance with sheer florals.This reminds me of a tart fruity summer drink like a raspberry pomegranate margarita.The lotus and magnolia flower are very noticable on my skin.You can wear this year round however I still think it will really bloom on the skin in warm and hot weather.It is rather expensive but this is my splurge purchase for this spring.I love every aspect of the fragrance from the packaging to the bottle to the scent itself.This is what Dior Addict 2 used to smell like before its reformulation.If your looking for a high quality sparkling pink fruity fragrance this could be the one for you.I love it and will be wearing this with all my floral print clothing this spring and summer.Tropical,fruity,sparkling and elegant with a tartness that is just pure refreshment!LOVE

Tested it in store today and though i find the weather is not to be the right one for this fragrance, i really liked this one. An improvement indeed over the regualr version, which now seems quite pale compared to the "absolu" version.

Personally i find the lotus in here being much "thicker" than in the regular version, and i also smell a strong magnolia-raspberry mix. Pomegranate is a nice addition and gives this fragrance a fresh twist, yet not turning into something very ordinary. Honesly, it smelled somthing like i would use in the 90´s but in a good way only, not dated at all.
HOWEVER i still find the lasting power and sillage to be weak, in the beginning it DOES smell strong and intense, but on my skin after just 15-20 minutes it becomes much regular "bright crystal" alike. So sad, but i still probably would love to buy this one for my collection. Not on my top want list, but would mind to have i at all.

I went to test this today and was surprised by the poor longevity considering this is supposed to be a stronger edp version. The smell is almost identical but this is a tiny bit fruitier (but much less so than Dior Addict 2). It is worth buying for the gorgeous bottle though which actually looks even better in real life than in a picture!

This is zesty fresh and fruity, I definitely detect citruses. But it gets warmer real fast, which is an improvement over the simplicity of the original. I like that it isn't fruity/girlie either, there is an intense icy/floral accord which smells pretty...definitely a nice fragrance, reminds me a bit of YSL Baby Doll, so it isn't anything new, it is pleasant, and feminine..more interesting than the original , yet it has poor longevity.

Tested this on Saturday and I must say it's an absolute gem!
Same fruity juice as regular BC but with such an intensity that gives the Absolu such an alluring touch.
Bright Crystal becomes more elegant,more complex and really gorgeous.
Perfect for cold winter nights and both bottle and box are stunning!
