I’ve been wearing Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb for about 4 years now. It’s not my go to, everyday scent, but it’s one I like to have, especially for the Springtime.
Mick got me a new bottle for Christmas and I’d forgotten just how much I like it, although it’s one of those perfumes that I really have to be in the mood for. Some days I adore it, and other days it gives me a headache. I am one of those people who sprays a lot of their fragrance, but I’ve learnt to have a gentle touch with this.
Flowerbomb was born thanks to Viktor and Rolf wanting to create a fragrance that had the power to spread a positive message, and combining an ultra-floral scent in a beautiful grenade shaped bottle, is a touch of creative genius.
A profusion of flowers as a weapon to spread the world with beauty and fantasy and to transform the negative into a positive.Viktor & Rolf
If you like floral fragrances, then you’re going to adore Flowerbomb. It is packed with florals meaning this is delicious, sensual and extremely feminine.
Bergamot, Green Tea, Osmanthus
Sambac Jasmine, African Orange Flower, Freesia, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid.
Musk, Patchouli, Vanilla
Flowerbomb has evolved into a whole collection now although I’m yet to try any of the other scents. I don’t know many women who haven’t tried the original though. Whilst I don’t have the deep love for this that I do for my Jo Malone scents, there’s something about it that means I like to have a bottle.
It always fascinates me how some days it smells amazing one and other days it makes me want to scratch my nostrils out and lie in a darkened room. Some days it smells beautifully floral and other days it just smells like a lot of synthetic chemicals, but I still like it. In short, Flowerbomb confuses yet pleases me at the same time.
