Comparison - Bulgari Omnia Amethyste

Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste Review
US Authentic vs. Mall Original

You probably see the advertisement telling that the quality and smell of US Authentic Bulgari Omnia Amethyste perfume is the same with Mall Original Bulgari Omnia Amethyste perfume.

We also received lots of questions about that, because lots of people are skeptical and asking “how they can sell the US Authentic perfume for more than 1 thousand while Mall Original perfume sells for more than 5 thousand pesos”.

To answer the question, we made a no holds barred comparative testing.

We, the Scentfie QA Team will cover the most popular women’s perfume in the Philippine market the Bulgari or Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste.

Scope of review

We tried to buy the Dubai Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste and Singapore Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste but it’s already sold out in our supplier and most of other online sellers did not replied in our inquiry.

We also consider the old version of US Authentic perfume, but the old version is almost sold out so we focus on these 2 most popular versions to simplify and to concentrate on the objectives of comparative test.

3 Phases of Comparison

1. Physical Difference of Box and Bottles
2. Editors Review about Difference in Fragrance
3. Fragrance Difference and What Women’s Like According to Survey

1. Physical Difference of Box and Bottles

Bulgari Omnia Amethyst Box Front

Even if you hold the 2 boxes you cannot easily identify their differences because they have the same size, weight and font style design. The color of boxes are almost the same, they also have the same border.

However, since we really wanted to compare the 2 boxes we checked the characteristics one by one.

BVLGARI label – US Authentic perfume has a much embossed label, while Mall Original is also embossed but you can only feel the embossed on the edges of each letters.

Fonts color – US Authentic perfume have a color gold fonts; however, the color was easily removed during the review (you can see the faded color of letter V). Mall Original fonts are color silver and were not removed even after the review.

Frame border – the size, depth and width of frame borders are the same.

Bulgari Omnia Amethyst Box Back
Back of the box
 – almost the same until I checked the box 3 times. That’s the time I observed that Bulgari US Authentic perfume box has no border.

Color – the color of Mall Original perfume box is light purple. When I focus on the color it’s like a yellowish purple but since there are no yellowish purple let’s stick with light purple.

Font size and content – the two have the same font size and content. It includes the authorization to sell and ingredients used to make the perfume.

Bulgari Omnia Amethyste Box Inside
The US Authentic inside box is slightly yellow. Aside from the color, other characteristics are the same like the thickness, weight and quality of the box that holds the perfume bottles.

Bulgari Omnia Amethyst Perfume Bottle
Bulgari perfume bottles are elegant some people are asking on how they can remove the cap until they see the spray, they thought there is a cover that needs to remove to see the spray.

At first I thought there are metal covers because of the silver design. But then I was not surprised when I hold it and it was very light.

Color – they have slight difference in color, the US Authentic has a lighter color than Mall Original.

Shape – the bottle of Mall Original has a curve, while US Authentic is flat.

Aside from the color and shape, the weight, thickness, smoothness and quality of the 2 perfume bottles are the same.

When I use the spray nothing comes out until 2-3 sprays. This is normal when you use the new perfume.

Loose pump – I though we only got the perfume spray with loose pump handle, it doesn’t fall but we feel that its not totally intact. I just verified it after I tested the perfume in the mall and in our own supplier. In short Mall Original might released some of these in the market.

Anyway the quality of spray is not affected.

Bulgari Omnia Amethyst Perfume Bottle Label
When I see the bottle label, I immediately compare if the batch code is the same with the box batch code at the bottom of perfume box. It matched!

The difference is the quality of sticker. US Authentic Bulgari Omnia Amethyste has a wide wrinkled sticker. It is also obvious that the batch code is flat.

The Mall Original Bulgari Omnia Amethyste sticker sticks well at the bottom of the bottle. The batch code is embossed but I have to touch it multiple times to confirm.

Conclusion

If you want the initial kick of strong scent then slowly turns to mild fragrance go to US Authentic perfume. This has the same fragrance of Mall Original and the price is very cheap.
 
If you want the consistent mild fragrance buy Mall Original perfume. Well this is what should be the real scent of Bulgari Omnia Amethyste. The price is ₱5,080 in the Mall. This might be expensive but it last a little longer.
