EmmaKate here sharing another fabulous scent for the silly season.
I was at the launch of this fragrance when it came to Australia and that will always influence the way it sticks in my mind. Launched at Mecca Cosmetica in Paddington, the entire space was filled with masses of flowers. It was literally an explosion of colour and scent. Champagne and fabulous finger food were served all adding to the opulence of the event and thus scent itself.

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, green tea
Heart: Sambac jasmine, Centifolia rose, freesia, Cattleya orchid
Base: Musk and patchouli
When I heard about this fragrance I expected a big white floriental, not so. It opens with a sparkling candy floral, reminiscent of a moscato or excellent sticky dessert wine, it rounds out to be a full bodied sweet floral, the amber making it almost syrupy, with the patchouli giving it a grounding and anchoring it to the skin and removing any sense of sickly sweet. The freesia and osmanthus give this fragrance a light airy, almost effervescent feel.

When wearing Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf, I imagine the girliest version of myself- very dainty, high heels, a feminine almost ballerina style dress in fairy floss pink, glass of crisp champagne in hand. I am surrounded by bouquets of white and pink flowers. It is a romantic scent for me.
The scent is described on the Viktor and Rolf website as “Full-bodied and opulent, the Eau de Parfum explodes in a bouquet of sensations with its addictive floral notes which leave their trail, like a whirlwind that is distinctly couture. A millefleurs around the freesia, Centifolia rose, osmanthus and Sambac jasmine, supported by a background of patchouli”

In terms of longevity, this fragrance wears well. I get about 6 hours, which is huge for me.
Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is the perfect scent for someone who likes a sweet scent, perfect scent for young girls and those young at heart…like me.
Happy smelling 🙂
