This is a review of the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum.
Recently, I mentioned to a fellow blogger friend that I was looking to find a new perfume. She kindly gifted me with a huge bag full of perfume samples!
What it does: (from the Sephora website)
This floral explosion releases a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive. Magically evocative notes immediately awaken your deepest senses, giving you the impression of living life in your own secret garden, away from reality. Sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid, and ballerina freesia bloom on a base of patchouli.
Notes: Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.
Style: Oriental. Gourmand. Floral.
Availability: A quick google search tells me that this product is available at Nordstrom and Sephora
Price: The 1 oz bottle of this product retails for $80. Pricey!
Scent: Because I am used to floral scents, this perfume felt very heavy and oriental to me. While the floral notes are also prominent, I was very aware of the patchouli.
- This scent lasts very well on my skin, probably because it is a heavier scent
- I felt that this scent was a little more earthy than what I normally wear, making it very different for me
- It smells strongly, so I was very careful not to wear too much
Would I purchase? Maybe. I liked this perfume because it is different from what I normally wear. I think it works better in the colder months!
Hope you enjoyed this review!
