Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

NOTES: Tea, Bergamot, Sambac Jasmine, Cattleya Orchid, Freesia, Centifolia Rose, Musks, Patchouli

Flowerbomb may just be THE most popular fragrance of the decade, and for no other reason, I decided I would try it. I have seen it described as a chiefly gourmand scent, while others classify it as a “pink” floral, yet some others say it is a modern floriental. I had absolutely no expectations, so no matter what I thought of it, I was not to be disappointed.

CLASSIFICATION: Floriental, gourmand, sweet

AGE GROUP: Mature / Perfect for any age

SIMILAR SCENT(s): N/A

FORM: Eau de Parfum
