When I bought La Vie En Rose by Viktor and Rolf there was something inside the box where I could register on the Viktor and Rolf website so I did and they kindly sent me a sample of Flowerbomb eau de parfum, a sample of the Flowerbomb body lotion and also the perfumed shower gel to match.
I have been meaning to buy this fragrance for a while anyway so I was pleased to receive the sample.
Price and availability
The eau de parfum is available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles. It is also available as an eau de parfum.
The 30ml eau de parfum is available from Boots for GBP49.50.
The 50ml eau de parfum is available from Boots for GBP64.50.
The 100ml eau de parfum is available from Boots for GBP93.50!
It is a rather expensive fragrance, which is why it hasn’t worked its way into my collection yet.
I only have a sample, but the normal bottle is in a bottle, which looks a bit like a grenade. It is very angular and on the front there is a silver plaque with, ‘Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb’ imprinted onto it.
I quite like the bottle design.
The first time I tried this fragrance I used the tester of the eau de toilette in Boots and was really surprised by how intense it was. As you’d imagine this eau de parfum version is also rather strong. To be honest I think the two versions smell quite different, but it has been a while since I tried the eau de toilette so I may be wrong.
This eau de parfum was first released in 2005. It has a lovely unique scent. I think it is the tea note that I can detect initially bringing a harshness to the opening notes. It is almost a spiciness, but it is inoffensive; actually very pleasant. I’m not usually a fan of harsh scents, but this fragrance also has quite a sweet scent. The sweetness is dulled down by the harsher note and gives the fragrance a mature and sophisticated scent. I don’t think the sweetness makes the fragrance feel young.
For me, this fragrance isn’t much of a floral fragrance as the name would suggest. There are definitely some florals there, but it is the tea note that dominates the fragrance and makes it what it is.
I really like this fragrance and I definitely want to buy a full size bottle in the future.
The top notes of the fragrance are bergamot and green tea.
The heart notes are Sambac jasmine, Centifolia rose, freesia and Cattleya orchid.
The base notes are musk and patchouli.
The fragrance is described as oriental, which I think is an accurate description, but it has a definite sweetness that takes the edge of the fragrance as some orientals can be a bit too harsh or spicy.
The creamy sweetness of the fragrance is lovely and I can detect the musk and the earthiness brought by the patchouli note.
I would recommend this fragrance, but it is very unique and very pricey so I’d definitely recommend trying before you buy.
I have found that it lasts on my skin really well. It can still be detected after 12 hours of wear, which is excellent and it has quite good projection so I think other people will notice this fragrance on me.
I imagine that this is one I’d tend to choose as a day time scent, but it is heavy and nice enough to wear for evenings out or special occasions and if I’d paid over GBP90 for a bottle I’m not sure I’d want to wear it to work every day!
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb has been the only consistent fragrance in my perfume collection since it was first launched.
It can be an expensive purchase but I always used to buy the 100ml bottles at the duty free airport shop when the bottles were in the region of £95-£100. However Boots now sell the 100ml EDP for £89.50 which can work out to be a better option than the duty free prices. You can also collect 356 Boots points with the purchase, the equivalent of £3.56. Boots often offer in-store bonus points on transactions over a certain amount so you can save even more money if you're a Boots advantage card member. I often print off a 500 bonus points voucher at the in-store machines if I'm planning on spending more than £40. Around Christmas time, you can often find the perfume in a gift set containing body lotion.
I find the Eau de parfum lasts all day after only one spray. Therefore offers value for money as the bottle lasts much longer than cheaper fragrances. I may spray a few more times on evenings out - although too many squirts may be too overpowering as I find the smell lingers on my clothes until they're washed. I've had my current 100ml bottle for about 10 months now (used at least once a day) and there's still at least 1 fifth of the bottle left.
I tend to spray more when using eau de toilette or other cheaper fragrances as the scents are not strong enough to last all day. I always receive compliments about the Flowerbomb.
Flowerbomb is a fragrance that I instantly recognise. the strawberry and jasmine notes create an explosion of floral and fruity scents. It's a very sweet smell so great for the summer but I do tend to wear it all year long.
The key fragrance notes are:
I recently got a sample perfume of this after smelling it on a friend she recommended it to me. Perfume wise I like floral, sweet and summery smells and this to me stood out. I requested a sample from Victor and Rolf who make the perfume because I find that although a perfume smells nice it can sometimes not settle right on my skin and smell differently, with the price tag on this I decided to opt for a sample first.
This perfume is available in Boots Eau De Parfum currently £65 for a 50ml, £49 for a 30ml or £90 for 100ml. Eau De Toilette is also available at a slightly cheaper price of £55 for 50ml or £75 for 100ml, no 30ml online and haven't seen it in store. It is also in Debenhams, Selfridges and House of Fraser for similar prices as Boots but its best to check what is available locally to you.
On my trip into Boots I took at look at this in more detail seen as I only got a sample size to try. The packaging is a light pink in colour with a black spot showing the Victor and Rolf logo and a black line all round it saying flowerbomb. The bottle looks a bit like a circular crystal or grenade type of shape, clear glass to show the light pink fragrance and a silver lid and atomiser spray. It sprays well onto the skin.
I loved this scent in the first smell of it. It has a distinct summer smell to it, its powerful but at the same time not to heavy or overbearing. The floral notes in it work well together to create a lovely scent. It settles well on the skin without feeling sticky and lasts a very long time. I have the sample spray and I use 2 sprays on my neck and 1 on my wrist and it lasts all day without needing to reapply. When I do wear this I have been asked what I am wearing, many friends like the floral scent it has and one even brought one from smelling it from me!
I love this fragrance but I don't love the price! I was introduced to this just after Christmas 2012 so I am hoping Boots have it on offer closer to Christmas 2013 or even put it on my Christmas list for somebody to buy me. I would definitely recommend it as a gift for a female who likes floral smells as this would be a winner. For now I shall use what I have of my sample a hope for an offer at Christmas. I am giving it 4/5 only losing 1 star due to price.
When my nan and mum go shopping in Birmingham I can guarantee that they will almost always come home with new perfumes from Selfridges or Debenhams, I loose track of which one they tell me. As a result of these perfume purchases they always seem to get some testers and free samples of other scents and these samples somehow always end up being passed on to me. Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum by Viktor & Rolf is one of these samples I was given and absolutely love.
As I was given a sample of this perfume and I am yet to purchase a bottle of it I cannot tell you much about the packaging. From what I can see online it comes in a rather nice looking bottle shaped like a grenade. The tester tube bottle I have is like most perfume samples, it is 1.5ml in size and what I particularly like about this sample is that it has a pump spray nozzle on the top of it rather than just the little stopper which most sample seem to have. This is great as it means I can apply it in exactly the same way as if it were a regular bottle and the liquid doesn't run down my arms or neck when I try to dab it on.
How Does It Smell?
As the name suggests Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum smells quite simply of flowers! When I first saw the name of this scent I have to admit I was a little unsure of whether I wanted to risk an overly floral scent however my uncertainties were put at ease from the moment I sprayed it. Flowerbomb is very floral and sweet, but certainly not in a sickly and overpowering way but more in a fresh and bright way which makes it a very refreshing scent to wear. There is an almost musky undertone to this scent once it has settled and when I am wearing it I feel very fresh and feminine. Regardless of its floral tones this scent does seem to have a warmth element to it and as a result of this I would say it is suitable for wearing all year round although some may prefer it mainly during the Spring and Summer months more.
I usually spray perfumes on my neck and wrists when I get dressed in the morning and as I only carry a small bag around with me I don't really like to take up the space in my bag with a perfume which may need re-applying, thankfully this is one of the scents which will last a whole day and more! As I only have the sample bottle of this scent I have only been able to wear it as many times as 1.5ml will allow, surprisingly this is quite a few as the scent doesn't need re-applying and quite often I can smell it on my clothes the following day and although it certainly isn't as strong as the previous day it is still detectable with ease and smells lovely.
Flowerbomb is currently retailing at £48 for a 30ml bottle in Selfridges! Personally this is slightly out of my price range hence the reason I haven't made my purchase yet! On Cheap Smells website I see that you can get the Eau de Toilette version of this scent for £48 for a 50ml bottle, still expensive but a little more scent for your pennies and as I'm not sure what the difference is between and Eau de Parfum and an Eau de Toilette I think I may take the "more scent" option. If anyone knows the difference I would be very grateful of an explanation.
Would I Recommend?
The price tag for Flowerbomb is a little too high for me, but at the same time the scent is gorgeous and I seem to almost find myself saying that it is worth such a high price! I would certainly recommend the scent if you don't mind the higher price tag, it is feminine, flowery but not sickly and it lasts well and I will probably treat myself in the future, or hint at a bottle for Christmas!
4 out of 5 from me.
Thanks for reading :)
I was lucky enough to receive a decent amount of Boots vouchers for my birthday back in April, and I decided to treat myself to a new perfume I'd had my eye on for a while but hadn't been able to justify due to the price.
This perfume is part of the Viktor and Rolf range, and after smelling it in duty free on holiday a year ago, I've been repeatedly stalking the Boots counter to steal a spray every now and then. When I received my Boots vouchers, I headed into my nearest Boots store, and paid £48 for a 30ml bottle. The perfume is available in the following sizes, at the guide prices given below:
I looked round online before receiving these vouchers, to see if I could get it any cheaper, but these prices are fairly standard and only vary by a few pounds in most shops. The Eau de Toilette is a little cheaper, but as the EDT usually has less staying power I opted for the perfume instead.
I have to say, I was quite superficial in choosing this perfume, as the reason I was drawn to it was the bottle. It is clear and shows the pinkness of the perfume inside, in a lovely shaped bottle with little blocks of glass squares on it. Topped off with a lovely silver label and lid, it looks very classy and....expensive!
So the important bit, what does it smell like? Well, the Boots website describes it as:
"a thousand flowers in a bottle of perfume. Full-bodied and opulent, it explodes in a bouquet of sensations with its addictive floral notes which leave their trail, like a whirlwind that is distinctly couture" (www.boots.com)
In everyday terms, the perfume is floral but also has a hint of muskiness and spice which stops it being overly sickly sweet. The key ingredients for this perfume include centifolia rose, India osmanthus, catleya orchid, and sambac jasmine. I would say the only ingredients I can detect are rose and jasmine, but I am not the best person to pick out individual notes. It is a very distinctive perfume, once you've smelt it you'll recognise it on anyone. It certainly is a perfume for making a statement. It's quite a heavy perfume, so I tend to wear it for evenings rather than during the day.
The staying power of this perfume is reasonably good, it's quite strong and very sweet when you first spray it so I tend to spray a little while before leaving the house to give it chance to settle. It then develops into a more subtle and less sweet fragrance. I don't usually wear it for work as it's a bit of a waste, and it's also a little heavy for daytime. It lasts for the duration of a night out, but if I wear it for an entire day it sometimes fades a bit by the evening. This is to be expected though, as not many perfumes stay potent for twelve hours without the need to reapply. One thing I have noticed is that it lingers on fabrics, so sometimes I'll put my coat on and get a whiff of it, even if I'm not wearing it. This is nice as it puts a smile on my face when I'm going to work and wasn't expecting to smell it.
This is a lovely perfume, although it's quite expensive it gives a feelgood factor, and is something a bit special for nights out and special occasions. I give it four stars, with the price being the only thing to knock a star off for me.

This is by far my favourite perfume that I have ever owned and that I will buy over and over again once it has finished! I had never heard previously of Viktor & Rolf and came across it by chance, but it is honestly a beautiful perfume. It is in a beautifully shaped bottle, with the dynamics that distantly resemble the shape of a bomb or a hand grenade - but not in a negative way, as there is a simple touch to it being a glass perfume bottle with it being a lovely shade of pink. It is a very sweet smelling perfume that I can compare to no other, so distinctive that you can smell it quite intensely from across the room. You can instantly tell if someone else is wearing it. I am always complimented on my perfume and asked what it is. It also has the 'feel good' factor when you wear it as it is so distinctive. You do not even have to wear alot of it because of the intensity of the smell, and thank goodness because it is not the cheapest perfume! I originally waited about two years for this to come down in price as it was that expensive, however now it is a more affordable option - and totally worth it. I would definitely recommend this perfume for others to buy, it has done me the world of good just in confidence! It would also make a great present as it comes in a lovely pink box with a drawn on black Viktor & Rolf ribbon. The old saying really does stand - you get what you pay for!
I was first introduced to Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb by my sister in law who used to ask me to bring her bottles of it from the airport in Vienna where I lived, as it was not available in the UK. Now over the last couple of years Flowerbomb has really boomed in popularity in the UK and you can find it at the usual department stores like Debenhams, House of Fraser and John Lewis. Because it is so popular now, I often catch a hint of it when out and about in London, on the tube or shopping etc, so it is not as unique as it once was. Personally that doesn't bother me too much as I don't wear it too often and it's not my signature scent (I use so many different perfumes), but I know the fact that it has lost its individuality has slightly taken the shine of it for my sister in law.
The bottle and the brand appeal to me, as they are simple and classy. The bottle is rounded with loads of edges, similar to the sides of a diamond. Apparently it is supposed to be the shape of a grenade to match the name Flowerbomb, but honestly this did not even occur to me until I read it somewhere! It has a small silver square with the name. It is not too fussy, but the shape makes it instantly recognisable. The box packaging is also distinctive with its simple pink and black. The bottle feels quite strong and can withstand the odd light bash in your handbag or luggage.
Most importantly, what does it smell like?
Flowerbomb is a creamy floral with a patchouli base. It smells quite intense from first spray and it lasts amazingly throughout the day. The sillage is exceptional and people can easily notice this fragrance. I think it is very distinctive and I haven't smelled any other perfume quite like it. If I catch a hint of it on someone I can immediately recognise it as Flowerbomb.
According to Basenotes.com the notes of Flowerbomb are:
Jasmine, Freesia, Orchid
Centiflora Rose, Patchouli
The bergamot gives the scent a little sharpness to balance the sweetness and stops it smelling sickly sweet. I am sure there must be a vanilla note in there, even though Basenotes has not listed one. I feel like I can detect some vanilla.
As you can probably guess due to the scent being so intense and lasting such a long time, Flowerbomb is not exactly what you could call a light fragrance. If you are looking for "clean" or "fresh" scents then this is not the one for you! It has some muskiness and is a very full and heady perfume. I think it is ideal for a night out, but many people may find it a bit heavy and noticeable for day to day wear. The eau de toilette is a bit lighter or there is also a summer limited edition version called Flowerbomb "la vie en rose" which is ideal for daytime and summer wear.
Flowerbomb smells classic and timeless to me and I think it suits a wide range of ages. My sister in law and I are both in our mid 20s and love this scent. My mum also loves it and she is coming up for her 60th birthday. It seems to be quite popular with older teens as well.
Overall this is a lovely scent which I think is becoming a modern classic. It is a winner of the Debenhams 2012 Beauty Club award, so you can buy it with a 10% discount from Debenhams at the moment.
Otherwise full price it starts at £48.00 for the 30ml bottle or £78.00 for the 50 ml, so it is on the pricier end of the mainstream perfume market.
I've never been one for expensive perfume but when trying out perfumes in a department store with friends I fell in love with flowerbomb. I've always liked vanilla scents and this has a strong hint of it while remaining a fairly subtle scent that isn't overpowering when you first apply, but fades within 15 minutes. The quality is fantastic - on a 27 hour plane journey (with no chance to wash or reapply the perfume) my boyfriend commented on how nice my perfume was at the other end which shows its staying power. Also, I like to have beautiful bottles on my dresser and Flowerbomb definitely looks the part!
I'm usually quite good at placing an age on perfume, but Flowerbomb could really work for most ages. It would be appropriate for teenagers and middle aged women and could be worn everyday or as an evening perfume depending on how much perfume you usually wear.
For people on a budget Flowerbomb is pricey, as most good perfumes are and I've found it hard to find any in the sales or with any great discount. Even in duty free at the aiport a 30ml will still set you back at least £35. If you are looking for a budget version try Christina Aguilera - Secret Potion; the smells are similar (but not the same) and Secret Potion is a lot cheaper, but you may find yourself reapplying more often. Also, if you like this you may also like Princess by Vera Wang, although Princess is a lot sweeter and more geared at younger women, especially teenagers.
**The first time we met**
"What a stupid name for a perfume!" I thought to myself as I browsed the counters pre-Christmas in Debenhams. "Who would buy a perfume called Viktor and Rolf?"
Well, hand's up. That was me! I sniffed this perfume out of fascination for what could possibly warrant a perfume costing £50-£70 (depending on size) being called after two blokes. Turns out, it was called Flowerbomb (not Viktor&Rolf, they just make it) and it was very sickly sweet on first impressions.
Ten minutes later I could still smell it, in that "oooh what's that? I want more" kind of a way (said in the voice of Buddy the Elf) rather than "oh dear, I am walking around town smelling like Great Auntie Edith, get me home to a bath NOW!" kind of a way.
The love affair had begun and luckily Father Christmas decided I had been a good girl and brought me the Eau de Toilette for Christmas. Note this review is of the Eau de Toilette not Eau de Parfum.
As aforementioned, it seems sickly sweet to begin with but at no point does it smell cheap and like something your 12 year old cousin would wear. There is a musky undertone somewhere I'm sure, the official description states it has "creamy florals resting on a warm base of patchouli and vanilla" -whatever the heck that means? I hate flowery perfumes, so definitely think the vanilla and "sugaryness" come out in this perfume more than the florals. I think, compared to some perfumes it can be quite toned down not as strong as some I have had before and it is nice to be able to wear it daily rather than just special occasions.
The bottle is the shape of a grenade and is made of glass with a silver top and a tiny tag with V&R on it. It is a nice bottle with a unique design. The outer packaging is a marshmallow pink box with black writing and a black seal with V&R on it. The colours remind me of Agent Provocateur and think the perfume is aimed at 20-30 somethings who like a bit of designer class.
**Value for money**
It is not value for money, how can any perfume costing upwards of £50 be considered good value for money? Granted, the perfume itself will last a while and the scent lasts all day, so in that sense you are getting good value for money as you don't need to re-apply regularly.
Overall, I still love her, I just wish she could be a little cheaper ;)
They all lived happily ever after.
Flowerbomb is without a doubt my all-time favourite perfume. Now I may only be twenty but I still think that that is a bold claim as I am a huge fan of perfumes and am particularly fussy when it comes to one that I love.
Viktor and Rolf's prestigious perfume is gorgeous, and though it comes at a price, I believe that it is worth every penny and should be a must have (or at least a must-give-it-a-go) for all girls. When reading this review it is important to bear in mind that everyone has their own individual tastes especially when it comes to fragrances and I am a big fan of sweet smelling perfumes. Now, with that in mind let me tell you all you need to know about my favourite scent.
*What attracted me?
Flowerbomb was the favourite fragrance of my best girl friends at school. I think that all ten of us owned this perfume at one stage and I remember frequently borrowing it and recommending it to boys when they were stuck for presents for their girlfriends. Every trip to Harvey Nichols or to the airport resorted in near enough soaking my clothes with the perfume and I was dying to own it for myself. That brings us nicely to the price aspect of the perfume.
This perfume is not so widely available in stores. Previously the perfume was relatively harder to come across and I remember for a while when I lived in Edinburgh the only retailer that sold it was Harvey Nichols. I have recently spotted it in Debenhams and House of Fraser meaning that its distribution has been increased but generally you won't find it in more mainstream perfumes stores. This is probably because it is one of the higher end perfumes, with the price tag for the smallest 30ml bottle at £46.50. This may be steep but trust me girls, it is worth not eating for a couple of weeks!
Flowerbomb is one of the sweetest smelling perfumes there is on the market. It is claimed to have "top notes of tea and bergamot, middle notes of sambac jasmine, orchid, freesia, and rose, with a base note of patchouli" but let's be honest to most people that means little or nothing! I would personally compare it to that of Thierry Mugler's Angel but with less of a musty scent (this could however be because I am a huge fan of this perfume also). But I feel that calling it a sweet smelling perfume doesn't give it justice. It is girly yet seductive and playful yet sophisticated, in fact I would say that this perfume is on many levels and therefore it can been seen as a universal masterpiece. I do personally feel that to say a perfume is sweet does often make it sound cheap but (regardless of the price tag) this is something that Flowerbomb certainly is not.
Another thing I love about this perfume is that I do not feel it is restricted only to use for one occasion. Before I purchased Flowerbomb I was partial to having a night perfume and also a day perfume. I can't specify exactly how it is possible but for me this fragrance fits the bill for both and therefore I find that I can justify paying a bit more than normal for it. Not only that but it has a great staying power. I find that even if I have put the perfume on at the beginning of the day (and only 2-3 sprays all over) then I still smell of it at the end of the day.
Flowerbomb comes in a gorgeous little bottle, shaped like a grenade (but far more feminine) to represent its name. The rim of the dispenser has a tiny black plastic shaped protruding out which resembles a letter-seal and has the Viktor and Rolf logo. It has engraved silver plaque on the front and the perfume consists of a light pink colour, perfect to represent the candy-like smell that it has! Not only does it smell expensive, the bottle looks expensive to and is particularly sturdy as mine has taken quite a beating and is still fully intact - handy seeing as what it contains is so precious!
Never have I received so many compliments about a perfume as this one. I don't know if it's all down to people having a sweet tooth or due to strength (not in an unpleasant way) of this perfume but I am near enough always complimented when I am wearing it. Mostly from boys it will be a plain "you smell nice" (but let's face it that is pretty good coming from the opposite sex) and most girls will ask what perfume it is. My boyfriend's mum once told me I smelt like a sweet shop, surely that must be good?!
Don't be put off by the pricey nature of this perfume, it is a worthwhile investment. It smells lovely and because the perfume is strong you really don't need to use much at all. Remember, you get what you pay for, and if you don't believe me then just get to your nearest department store and check it out for yourself!
Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb. I was bought this perfume as a present having never heard of the brand before, but as soon as I smelt it I knew I'd found a new favourite! It's a very girly smell of flowers as the name would suggest but its not at all overpowering. You can tell its high quality, once you've put it on it lasts for ages so no need to carry a bottle in your handbag! I personally find as its quite a strong, deep smell its best worn in the evening for a night out but whenever I wear it I always get lots of comments about how nice it is. The only downside is it is quite expensive, but as you need just a couple of sprays to last you all day the bottle will last for ages so I think its worth it! All in all a lovely fragrance.
Flowerbomb has been my signature sent for a while. I actually found it flicking through a copy of my monthly fashion magazine. After my very first sniff of this scent I was addicted.
It's girly, gorgeous, sweet, intoxicating, warm , and very feminine.
It is pricey, but its worth every penny. I'm not a huge fan of cheaper scents as they tend to be a bit wishy-washy and last all of ten minutes when on, but I can use a few squirts of Flowerbomb before work, and still smell it in the evening. A little of this scent goes a very long way.
Everything about this perfume is gorgeous, from the floral notes in the fragrence, to the detailed flower on the edge of the bottle, to the embossed flower on the packaging.
This is a true girly girls scent, and the best part about it is that when you wear it, you can't help but feel gorgeous.
** Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb - Eau de Parfum **
Flowerbomb is the first perfume of the popular duo Viktor & Rolf in 2004 in cooperation with L'Oreal. As the name implies this Flowerbomb fragrance is an explosion of flowers and according to the experts Flowerbomb is a sweet, cheerful and feminine fragrance. Viktor & Rolf ensures that every woman who carries this scent will be so happy that all negative transforms into positive. The ingredients for this are fresh but also sweet and are: freesia, bergamot, green notes, patchouli, Sambac, jasmine, orange blossom, rose and orchid. The Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb has:
Top notes: freesia, pear and basil.
The heart, peony, jasmine and lemon.
The base: musk and wood notes.
The Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum comes in a thick transparent glass vial. The The vial is closed by a silver spray which is easy to handle. To prevent leaks it closes with a silver metal cap. On the neck of the bottle is a round black plastic tag and these show the V & R logo. At the bottom of the vial is a sticker on which the content is displayed. The bottle I have has a capacity of 30ml.
This Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum is transparent in colour or actually it doesn't really have any colour and it's more like water. It's a rather sweet yet spicy fresh scent. It is especially in the beginning a fairly present, dominant scent. In fact you are bombarded by a huge cloud of floral scent but it becomes less after a few minutes. It is a darker scent of vanilla and you can smell the citrus fruitsh. The eau de parfum is available in bottles of 20ml, 30ml, 50ml and 100ml.
Several years ago I got the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau De Parfum once as a gift and unfortunately I must confess that it is not my favourite smell. I think the smell is too sweet and reminds me of a cotton candy smell. I also think that it evaporates quickly, because after one hour or four, the smell almost disappeared. A shame especially since it costs around 70 pounds for 50ml.
Flower Bomb By Viktor and Rolf is not a perfume that i instantly liked, Infact At first it make me feel a bit sick, Its certainly a very strong fragrance which i grew to like.
the design was what first attracted me to the perfume, as im quite a materialistic person it looks very pretty on my dressing table.
It has a very sweet smell so its not for everyone but the good thing about it is You only need to spray it once and it lasts the entire day and night. When i was younger i sprayed it about 10 times all over me and knocked everyone around me sick, so with this fragrance less really is more.
It is rather expensive at 40/50 pound a bottle but you really are getting your moneys worth, Ive had mine for over a year now and theres still a considerable amount left.
I would reccomend this product to women who like strong sweet fragrances but remember not to over do it!
