A punch of sweet, complex femininity.
If I had the choice of wearing only one perfume for the rest of my life, Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb would be it. An inspired birthday gift from Gemma, I’ve been using it on special occasions for around seven months and only now starting to run low – it is definitely a fragrance to be savoured.
The soft pink bottle and packaging speak of understated luxury, and it makes a gorgeous addition to any dressing table. The fragrance itself has very good projection, is lasting and every stage of its wear is a thing of beauty.
At first spray, the sweet top notes of bergamot and tea surround you – giving the perfume a light uplifting feel. Almost immediately though, the gorgeous floral middle notes of musky jasmine, ultra fresh freesia and summery orchid burst through, making the initial few hours of this perfume truly amazing. The last hour or two of the fragrance settles down into a relaxed base of rose and patchouli that complements the remnants of that initial burst of pure, sweet freshness.
It is the ideal perfume to lightly spritz on to that special dress to go on a dinner date, or when you want to feel particularly polished and smell irresistible.
Not usually a fan of ultra-feminine or floral perfumes, I can’t speak highly enough of Flowerbomb; it is as close to perfection for a luxury feminine fragrance as you could wish for.
One that turns heads when you wear it and gives you an instant punch of sweet but complex femininity.
