At this point probably most of us heard about Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb fragrance, and rightfully so. This scent became iconic over the years, inspiring countless beauty products, men’s spinoff Spicebomb, and Limited Editions. To celebrate Flowerbomb’s 10th Anniversary Viktor & Rolf created this special gift set [no longer available], filled with 10 travel-sized bottles commemorating its 10-year journey to success.
A floral explosion, a profusion of flowers that makes everything more positive. Viktor&Rolf designed a bottle cut like a multi-faceted diamond for their fragrance. Full-bodied and opulent, the Eau de Parfum explodes in a bouquet of sensations with its addictive floral notes which leave their trail, like a whirlwind that is distinctly couture. – Viktor & Rolf
I remember reading a fashion magazine and getting enchanted with the ad page, although at the time my scent palate wasn’t refined enough to truly understand this bouquet. Didn’t stop me from wanting to buy it just for the bottle alone though! Designed by Fabien Baron [best known for his work as editorial director of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine], that diamond-shaped grenade is now forever recognizable even by those who never sniffed the fragrance itself.
For those unfamiliar with Flowerbomb, it’s a bright, explosive musky oriental that will suit someone who loves strong, sophisticated, and complex scents [like yours truly!]. There is a nice mix of bitter citrusy and floral notes, with a well-balanced musky base.
- Top notes: Bergamot and Green Tea.
- Middle notes: Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Freesia, and Cattleya Orchid.
- Base notes: Musk and Patchouli.
Thinking about picking up Flowerbomb? Sephora and Nordstrom currently have several beautiful Christmas sets available in all price ranges, including one that looks like a snow globe. Now that would be a gorgeous gift for a fragrance collector!
