Fragrance Friday -- Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb

8 comments


Today's Fragrance Friday is the widely popular Flowerbomb eau de parfum from Viktor&Rolf. This eau de parfum is a sweet oriental fragrance. The notes listed in this fragrance are top notes of bergamot, green tea, and osmanthus, middle notes, middle notes of jasmine, orange flower, freesia, rose, and orchid, and base notes of musk and patchouli.

At first spray, I do smell a little bit of the citrus from the bergamot, but I mostly get the sweet, sugary smell of strawberries, which is more than likely the osmanthus. As it begins to dry down, the floral notes begin to come through the sweetness a bit, especially the freesia and rose. The fruitiness of the orange flower is also prominent. The way fragrances develop is very interesting. Sometimes, I get  the notes of jasmine and orchid, and sometimes I cannot smell it at all. At the final dry down, the strawberry is still there but as a strawberry jam with patchouli. Smells delicious!

Flowerbomb is a long lasting fragrance with heavy sillage. This is strong and lasts all day, so you don't need to apply much at all. Because it has been so cold lately it is not quite so heavy on the projection, but this will broadcast quite loudly in the summer.

What do you think of this fragrance? Have you had a sniff?

    1. This one is very popular and definitely not for people who don't want to smell like someone else. I don't mind as long as I smell good! Spray some on the next time you go to Sephora and see if you like it!

  3. I may have to actually venture into my local Sephora to get a whiff of this. I usually order all my beauty products on line. I hate going to our mall. Only if I REALLY have to, I'll go.

    1. I would definitely test Flowerbomb on yourself before you buy. A lot of people really love this fragrance, but some think it's too sweet.

  4. I have not tried it yet but I prefer much more fresh or citrus scents. I am not a sweet smell lover! LOL- but good for you that it works on you! Nice review!!! XOXO, Sissi http://www.beauty4free2u.com

    1. Thank you! This is very sweet, so it would not be one that you like. It would probably be too heavy for the Florida climate too.
