Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Fragrance Review

Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Fragrance
I have a confession. I have an addiction to reading beauty blogs and watching beauty gurus on YouTube. And one of my favorite girls to read/watch is definitely Fleur from fleudeforce.com or youtube.com/fleurdeforce. I especially love reading her Friday Fragrance posts. So I thought I would write one of my own. I don't have much experience with fragrance reviews...so let's hope this goes well.

Flowerbomb is easily one of the most mature scents I own. I wear this scent when I want to feel sophisticated and feminine. My friend in high school used to wear this perfume and that was how I first heard about Flowerbomb. This was during the time that I was just getting into makeup and I was astounded that a perfume could cost so much money ($110 for a 1.7 oz bottle). The price was the main reason that it took me so long to actual become the proud owner of a bottle. For a long time I would just spritz myself whenever I was at Sephora's and enjoy the scent until it faded. In the end, it was worth the wait. 

Flowerbomb not only packs a punch to the sense of smell but also to the sense of sight. It took me many trips to Sephora and a comment from my sister before I noticed that the perfume bottle is inspired by a grenade. I hadn't given the name a second thought but now it all made sense. Flowerbomb is one of the best designed perfumes bottles on the market. It is subtle but powerful, edgy but sophisticated. It is a perfume bottle that would appeal to a wide range of women and I can't get enough. Flowerbomb smells amazing but I also love how it looks on my shelves.

The official notes of the perfume are sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid, ballerina freesia, and patchouli. This scent is a bit more floral than most of my other perfumes. It is also more of a nighttime scent than most of my other perfumes. It is heavy scent but I find that it becomes significantly softer as the oils of the scent interact with your natural pheromones. But I'm not the only one who loves it. My sister is also a big fan. As are many of Sephora shoppers as Flowerbomb is one of the store's best selling perfumes.

Positives
-Lovely floral scent
-Beautiful and edgy packaging

Negatives
-Price ($110 for 1.7 oz)

In conclusion, the price keeps me from saying that Flowerbomb is a must have perfume. I loved this scent for a long time before I finally committed. And I think that's the best route to go for most perfumes. They're expensive and it takes forever to get your money's worth. There is one thing I've learned in my years of buying perfume: do your research. Read reviews online, check it out in stores, and make sure it smells good on you (because most perfumes smell different in the bottle vs. on your skin). But I highly recommend that people check out this scent the next time your at a fragrance counter. I love it and I'm not alone. Hopefully you will too.
