Intro

What would be a better way of commemorating a fashion house's anniversary than launching a brand new perfume? Viktor & Rolf Fashion House did just done that.

The first fragrance by Viktor & Rolf, Flowerbomb perfume (EDP) was launched in 2005 at Colette Boutique in Paris as a glamorous celebration of company's decennial anniversary, commemorating its proven record of integrity and avant-garde elegance. Flowerbomb perfume's official launch coincided with Viktor & Rolf's women's wear collection of the same name for Spring/Summer 2005. For the past five years, the popularity of this particular fragrance with numerous flankers has cemented the success and reputation of the fashion house also in the fragrance industry.

A glamorous product by fashion trendsetters, Flowerbomb perfume was created under the partnership of the three giants: Viktor & Rolf of fashion design industry, L'Oreal of the cosmetics industry and International Flavors & Fragrance of the perfumery industry. It comes in a pink glass bottle, cut in the shape of a diamond bomb, hand grenade, with a wax seal with Viktor & Rolf logo printed on it. The bomb-like bottle was created by one of the generation's best designers, Fabien Baron of Baron & Baron and is suggestive of its explosive content.

Notes

You might think there was too much hype about Flowerbomb perfume's launch but indeed this perfume is designed to celebrate - feminine beauty. This floral orange tuberose perfume, as classified by osmoz.com is often described also as a oriental floral. It opens with strong, but refreshing green scents of tea and bergamot. It leaves a buoyant, a bit citrusy scent, a perfect intro for the soft, muted down flowery middle notes, Sambac Jasmine, Cattleya Orchid, Fressia and Centifolia Rose. It then paves way to the musky patchouli dry down, radiating an ambery and delectable vanilla-like scent. Base is oriental sweet, not cloying, and also the patchouli scent is kind of muted down. All in all, it is a seductive yet elegant perfume, modern and classy. Many say that it's more of a jasmine perfume, but for me the most apparent scent is the caramelized aroma of patchouli.

Lady & Feelings

Created to capture the alluring and angelic feminine softness, Flowerbomb perfume by Victor & Rolf is perfect for the reserved and soft-spoken women who want to enhance their innate beauty. It sends a soft comforting scent that is motivating and empowering. A squirt of fragrance conveys a behaved personality, even though the base notes harbor an underlying sense of soft sensuality and seductiveness. This sensual, sweet perfume will surely draw many compliments.

Occasions & Seasons

The sensual feminine sweetness makes Flowerbomb perfume a great choice for special and romantic occasions; OK, maybe also for everyday wear, if you use it sparingly. It suits modern, classy attire perfectly. Women of any age group can wear it; however it is in my opinion less appropriate for teens. Regarding the seasons, the perfume is more appropriate for colder seasons, due to its warm base notes.

The main drawback of the Flowerbomb is its high price. Also, some customers find it to be overly sweet (heavy) and not floral at all. And many say it lacks originality and that it is a reminiscent of Angel by Thierry Mugler.

As a Gift?

Flowerbomb Perfume by Viktor & Rolf (EDP)Flowerbomb perfume by Viktor & Rolf is undoubtedly an excellent choice for women's perfume gift due to its wide appeal and wearability. It is less appropriate as a gift for teens.

You can purchase it as a perfume gift for many occasions like birthday of a friend, as a romantic Valentine's Day and even as a Mother's Day perfume gift.

The fragrance is available in three volumes: 1 fl. oz. (30 ml), 1.7 fl. oz. (50 ml) and 3.4 fl. oz. (100 ml). As they say the price of beauty is ever increasing, so does with perfumes. Flowerbomb is quite costly compared to fragrances of other brands. Usually the prices are between $100 - 200 for the 3.4 fl. oz. bottle and $70 - 100 for the 1.7 fl. oz. bottle. There are many online shops which offer discounted prices but make sure they deliver original Viktor & Rolf fragrance products.


Indeed, Flowerbomb perfume by Viktor & Rolf is a sensual fragrance bomb, but a bomb of sweetness not flowers, designed to make us see the world through beautiful pinky glasses. As Viktor & Rolf say, beauty has the power to make everything seem more positive. Do you agree?
