Limited Edition Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb 2017

Limited Edition Viktor Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume

Limited Edition Viktor Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume

Since it’s launch in 2005 Flowerbomb has become an International bestseller and I for one love it’s sweet floral scent, it evokes so many happy memories and it is a perfume I always go back to.

The 2017 Christmas Collectors Edition of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb comes with a silver flower adorning the neck of the iconic hand-grenade shaped perfume. This bottle is slightly different this year as it’s frosted pink instead of the classic glass bottle. This limited edition design is charming and quite subtle compared to previous years and I really like it.

The perfume is the same cult favourite but each year Viktor & Rolf like to release a special edition bottle at Christmas, so the scent is the one we all know and love. It has that fresh, sweet modern feel with an oriental twist. It is such a recognisable scent and I have been wearing it for years now. I always have a bottle in my collection because it is a perfume that is so easy to wear and the scent lasts so long on me.

  • Top notes – Mandarin, Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Saffron
  • Heart notes – Roses, Jasmine Flowers, Olives
  • Base notes – Amber, Vanilla, Patchouli, Oud

Limited Edition Flowerbomb Perfume

This is a lovely light, floral scent but you can make out the sweet notes of vanilla and the rich warm notes of amber. This perfume is layered with gorgeous notes and I adore bergamot in my fragrances, I think it gives Flowerbomb a sophisticated & sexy edge. If you’re someone who has never tried this iconic fragrance you must test it next time you get the chance. It really is a beautiful, smooth & rich scent with so many beautiful notes.

NEW Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb

If you know someone who loves Flowerbomb, their limited edition bottles make wonderful gifts, if you can track one down as they sell out incredibly fast each year.

So if you’re still looking for Christmas gift ideas for someone special, or indeed a treat for yourself then this beautiful Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume might be just the ticket.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom

I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago about switching up your scent for Spring and if this had landed on my doorstep at the beginning of March this would 100% have been included. I adore the original Flowerbomb fragrance, it is such a recognisable, cult scent and for me, it evokes so many happy memories. I have repurchased it countless times since it was first released back in 2005.

This latest release from master perfumers Viktor & Rolf is a lighter more refreshing take on the original scent, it has been called the sister scent (I like that).

  • Top Notes: Pomegranate Accord, Bergamot, Mandarin Oils
  • Heart Notes: Freesia, Rose, Jasmine, Pure Air Molecule
  • Base Notes: Musk, Vanilla, Patchouli

What I enjoy about the Flowerbomb fragrances is that they are a beautiful mix of floral and sweet. With neither being too overpowering, also once the scent has settled it has a very flirty, youthful musk undertone, which I love.

The bottle is not too dissimilar to the original, it is a little more slender but still, diamond cut and looks just as pretty.

It is described as another chapter in the Flowerbomb story and if you’re a fan of the original you’re going to really enjoy this new airy, fresh, Spring offering.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom is available now from Boots, Escentual, Debenhams and John Lewis in 30ml – £45, 50ml – £58 and 100ml – £80

Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge

Roger & Gallet

Roger & Gallet

Roger & Gallet are a French Perfumery House founded in 1862 by merchant Charles Armand Roger and banker Charles Matial Gallet, their products have such a rich history & they are famous for their perfumes and body products and I have been testing their beautiful new fragrance Gingembre Rouge*

This new fragrance from Roger & Gallet is a refreshing take on their popular Gingembre scent, which has been available for over a decade now. The original Gingembre is more of an intense scent whereas the new Gingembre Rouge* (red ginger) is light, fresh and fruity.

For this new scent Roger & Gallet have taken inspiration from the exotic and beautiful Island of Zanzibar, I have never had the pleasure of visiting but I can just imagine its warmth and beauty. This fragrance smells exotic, feminine and quite sweet, it has the following top note, heart notes & base note

Top Notes: Fresh Ginger, Pomegranate Pulp, Mandarin

Heart Notes: Ginger Flower, Lychee Flower, Orange Blossom

Base Notes: Crystallised Ginger, Cedar Wood, White Musk

I’m terrible at describing scents but I would say that this smells zesty, spicy and floral in equal measures. The ginger adds a twist but isn’t overpowering and the scent is beautiful from the moment you spray it in to the skin. Its gorgeous & has been my go to Summer scent. I took it with me in my Travelo on my recent trip to Amsterdam & it was the perfect scent for day & night.

The bottle is pretty and feminine, it has a beautiful ombre effect from deep to light pink and it looks right at home on my vanity. I have the very sweet and travel friendly 30ml (£16) bottle it also comes in 100ml (£39) so both are very affordable. Roger & Gallet are available online at Marks & Spencer, Feel Unique and Escentual.com  

This is undoubtably the perfect scent for warmer months but I still plan on wearing it long into Autumn. It has such a fresh fruity scent which will still be lovely as a daytime fragrance even as the days grow shorter and the temperature cools.

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting away for some Winter sun then this would be the perfect holiday fragrance.
