Review: Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf


Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb is a perfume I have loved for months now, if not longer, but despite this, is a perfume I have only just purchased. I remember spraying it by chance in Boots and absolutely loving it. But, because I am a penniless student, I could never quite handle spending that amount of money on a bottle of perfume. So I would stare wistfully at it as I passed it in Boots, spritzing it on my wrist when I got the chance, and then spending the rest of the day smelling it and wishing I could afford to buy it. So, imagine my delight when I woke up Christmas morning, opened a present to find a bottle of this beauty staring back at me. Okay, well, that's not strictly true. It wasn't Christmas morning, it was the 14th December, and I knew exactly what it was before I opened it, but that's not so Christmassy, is it? My lovely boyfriend bought me a bottle of it, and I couldn't wait until Christmas to open it (not that he knows,) and instead opened it as soon as he gave it to me just before he left for home.
Part of me wants to save it, so I own it for ages, but I can't help but wear it every day. Each morning I reach up to my perfume shelf, and this is always the one my hands go straight for, and I can't argue with that!
With a gorgeous translucent pink bottle in the shape of a grenade, with a cute black flower on the side, this bottle is a beautiful addition to any perfume shelf.

Top notes: Bergamot, Tea
Heart notes: Jasmine, Freesia, Orchid
Base notes: Centiflora Rose, Patchouli
 (My knowledge of perfume notes is very limited, and I got the notes from this page.)

This is easily become my favourite perfume, it has fantastic staying power - I can smell it all day without having to reapply, and it's got such a gorgeous scent. I've worked out that I definitely have a bit of a thing for Jasmine perfumes, each perfume I go for seems to have jasmine in it somewhere, but I never realise I'm doing it!
If you like girly, sweet perfumes, this is definitely for you!

Have you tried Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb before? And if so, did you like it?

Ps. Sorry I've been so shit for posting recently, I was rushed off my feet all last week with a 4000 Portfolio assignment that I stupidly left to the last minute, baaaaad idea! Anyway, I'll have more time on my hands for the near future, so I'm hoping I can get back into the swing of things, I miss blogging so much!


  1. My best friend has this and it smells soo divine...but its soo expensive so i cant justify spending on it! Maybe one day when I'm rich and no longer penniless x

  3. レイバン サングラスを掛けて、友達と勝負することになった。お互いにレイバンマニアなので、いつの間に、それをかけて勝負することが多くなった。この度は、マラソンに出る事になって、勝つほうにレイバン ウェイファーラーのモデル二本を譲るということとなった。
