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
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.
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 are one of my absolute favourite perfume brands, I’ve reviewed quite a few of their releases on my blog over the years. I’ve also been a loyal wearer of their original Flowerbomb scent for almost a decade, it is a scent that holds so many happy memories for me. I get excited when they add a new scent to their range and this beautiful Bonbon Spring Summer addition is something very special. The original version was extremely popular and is more on the sweet side so this more citrus based version is different but still as beautiful.
Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Spring Summer*
If you like the sweetness of the original Bonbon fragrance then I think you will appreciate the more refreshing, subtleness of this limited edition offering. It is the perfect scent update for Spring Summer and although it is still quite sweet like the original it is a little warmer and zesty and I think it is my favourite Bonbon scent to date.
I think this new Bonbon release is a more sophisticated version, the mix of citrus, wood and floral notes work so well together and they give you such a beautiful feminine scent. Although this limited edition version is more Spring appropriate and lighter it is still long-wearing.
Bonbon Spring Summer contains some of my favourite notes including cedarwood, musk and blackcurrant,
As with all Viktor and Rolf fragrances, the bottle is just as stunning as the perfume itself. The outer cardboard packaging (which I can’t throw away) is a bright fuchsia pink with the classic black V&R faux wax seal at the centre of a pretty ribbon effect. The bottle itself is just gorgeous, it is lighter than the original and comes in a pretty frosted luminous, pearly pink ombre effect bottle which feels very luxurious and heavy. It is shaped like a wrapped sweet (candy), its very feminine and looks pretty sat on your dressing table.
So if you’re looking for a scent that is perfect for the warmer months then I recommend trying this fresh, warm, citrus scent. It is a great twist on the original but perfectly updated for Spring Summer!
