I search for a new fragrance every few months and vary the scents I wear based on the season. I found Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume at Sephora. Upon testing the fragrance, it reminded me of spring. Viktor & Rolf are an Amsterdam-based design team. Flowerbomb is their debut fragrance.
The glass bottle containing the perfume is octagon-shaped. Inside the bottle is the pale pink perfume – the colour of a peony. The geometric pattern on the bottle is fun and unique. Like other perfume bottles, this one contains a spray nozzle.
Flowerbomb is a delightful combination of floral notes. I sense hints of jasmine, freesia, and rose. The scent is mildly floral, but not overpowering. The fragrance begins with hints of rose and citrus. It dries down to a sweet vanilla scent with light jasmine notes. I often avoid flower-scented perfumes. This one, however, is mild for my liking.
The perfume is long-lasting. It reveals different fragrance notes as it dries down. I enjoy the scent. Floral perfumes are often cloying and overpowering. This one is the opposite – light and mild.
This fragrance is is just one of the company’s perfume sets. Other perfumes available in Viktor & Rolf’s collection include the Bonbon Collection and the Spice Collection. Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb Perfume retails at Sephora for $195.
