I’m a long time fan of Victor & Rolf fragrances and have repurchased their iconic FlowerBomb scent too many times to count, I think their fragrances are beautifully feminine and very pretty. The original BONBON scent was extremely popular and is more on the sweet side but this new more intense addition to the BONBON family is perfect if you like your perfume to be a little more intense and whilst it’s still sweet it settles down to be more of a rich, warm, sexy scent.
- Top Notes: Mandarin Orange, Neroli, Peach
- Heart Notes: Orange Blossom, Jasmine Sambac, Caramel
- Base Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vanilla, White Tobacco
This perfume has great staying power and I could still smell it on myself after a full day. I would also say that it works well as both as a day and an evening scent.
The outer cardboard packaging (which I can’t bare to 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 comes in a pretty purple / 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.
I think If you like Flowerbomb I think you’re going to fall in love with BONBON Couture too.
Its always so hard to describe a fragrance and recommending scents is difficult because perfumes are a very personal product. So don’t just take my word that this is a really pretty perfume, you need to pop along to your nearest perfume counter and test it out for yourself. Let me know if you like it and also which is your favourite Viktor & Rolf fragrance.
