The iconic Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb fragrance is celebrating its 10th birthday! This bold and classy perfume is described by the brand as “A floral explosion that awakens your senses as if you are living in your own secret garden.” I’d consider this a floriental, a bit heavy on the floral. It’s sweet, but not gourmand. On my skin personally, Flowerbomb has great sillage and lasting power. Just a drop and I’m set for the day.
Flowerbomb is hugely popular, and you can always count on the brand to release limited edition bottles if you are a collector. I absolutely adore the presentation of the 10th Birthday Set! It comes in a pink box with a black satin ribbon and seal. Upon opening, you will find 10 glass mini perfume bottles filled with 7ml of the original Flowerbomb edp. The box looks like a bubbly champagne explosion, with silver dots on the black flocked interior.
Being a perfume collector, I could easily keep all 10 bottles for myself, but I am excited to gift these to family and friends this holiday. They are the perfect size for tucking in a stocking or gift bag. Of course, I will keep a few for myself!
The notes in Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb are below.
top: bergamot, green tea
middle: jasmine sambac, Centifolia rose, freesia, Cattleya orchid
base: musk, patchouli
Flowerbomb is a scent that makes me feel classy and feminine, strong and powerful. I find it great for cooler weather, and especially as a nighttime fragrance. I’m not a huge patchouli fan, but it’s not prominent at all on me. I suspect it just gives a bit of depth to the scent to avoid becoming overly floral. While this gift set doesn’t appear to be available I have linked other Flowerbomb products below. They have some amazing holiday gift sets!
Are you a fan of Flowerbomb? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
