Back when I was into the Matrix groove, I also had my first scent crush ever. It was BLV, Bvlgari. The first perfume that got stuck in my nose just from smelling a magazine page. So I had to buy it, naturally!
BLV Eau de Parfum II looks to be the lighter, modern version of the original BLV (which had a darker blue bottle). And even if the bottle is strikingly similar to the original BLV one, it would appear the difference is inside. Also, fronting the BLV II ad campaign is Laetitia Casta.

Keeping some of the previous notes, Bvlgari BLV II smells like violet, iris, ambergris, licorice, vetiver, musk, mandarin and more. Available in 30, 50 and 75ml, the new Bvlgari BLV II stirred my curiosity.
I’m really curious to see if there’s anything remotely similar to the BLV effect back in the days. I’ll have to put my curiosity on hold, though: the new perfume will be available starting September (and in travel retail starting July). (via)
