It is an homage to the dazzling screen semi-goddesses of Italian and American cinemas - including Elizabeth Taylor who is credited for putting the jeweler's name on the international map at the time she was filming Cleopatra in Rome (1963) during a process famously described by director Mankiewicz as "conceived in a state of emergency, shot in confusion, and wound up in a blind panic," Reports of the mayhem sound so fun, it sounds like movie material on its own.

The actress would find time nevertheless to spend her afternoons in Gianni Bulgari's "little shop" to unwind her nerves, insisting as was her habit, on wearing her own pieces on set.

The new perfumes, which aim to reflect that period of history and the house's glamorous heritage, are luxurious reworkings of Bulgari pour Femme (1994), Rose Essentielle (2005) and Jasmin Noir (2008) by one perfumer, Sophie Labbé of IFF.
