Brand: Viktor & Rolf
What I liked:
- lasts all day
- the packaging
What I didn’t like:
- the scent is too sweet and smells like candy on me
- the price
I was very curious to try Flowerbomb after hearing all the hype about it, but I wasn’t sure whether to buy it or not since it is very expensive. I’ve finally managed to get a sample and let me tell you I’m very happy I didn’t fork out the money for this.
The perfume has top notes of tea and bergamot, middle notes of Sambac jasmine, orchid, freesia, rose and a base note of patchouli. It is described as a “floral explosion” and while the scent explodes on your senses like a bomb, I can’t smell anything floral at all. On me, it smells like candy. And as much as I love candy, I certainly don’t want to smell like it! It is a sugary scent that is way too sweet for my liking. I can’t really understand what the hype is all about, but I know there are people who love this, so I suggest to get a sample and see if you like it before purchasing.
The scent is quite overwhelming and strong at first, but then it dies down a bit and is very wearable, if you like this kind of fragrance. You only need to spray a very small amount. A little goes a long way with this and the scent lasts all day.
The packaging is quite feminine. The bottle is pink and cut like a diamond. The shape reminds me of a hand grenade which suits the name of the perfume. Attached to the bottle there is a black flower.
Overall, I don’t like this fragrance at all. It is way too sweet and smells like candy. It is also very expensive. However, the staying power is very good: the scent lasts all day.
