Fragrance Friday: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb (Limited Edition)
It’s been a great year for my fragrance discovery journey as there have been some amazing perfumes entering my life. As it’s my final Fragrance Friday of the year, I wanted to finish on something a bit special. The Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is an iconic fragrance with an instantly recognisable aesthetic, but there’s currently an even more beautiful take on the scent doing the rounds, courtesy of the limited edition bottle.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is a gently feminine fragrance that’s warm and floral with a musky base. The top notes are led by bergamot and pepper with a bouquet of floral heart notes courtesy of rose, jasmine and freesia, whilst the base contains the deeper, muskier tones including vanilla and patchouli. The packaging of Flowerbomb is incredibly pretty in it’s traditional format, but the current limited edition bottle is even more beautiful.
The limited edition Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb has a metal flower embellishment that adds a strong level of glamour to the bottle. It’s kind of slightly at odds with the understated bottle, but in a great, showstopping way that’ll make you stop and take note; the flower is huge and really grabs your attention. I’ve left mine on the bottle as I love the way it looks, but if you’re keen to remove it then it’s attached to a slightly stretchy ribbon, so it could definitely be repurposed as some kind of accessory. I touched on this fragrance briefly in my 10 Last Minute Gifts post which I wrote yesterday when there was still some stock showing up online. As this is limited edition, it’s likely to be sold out at most stockists, but if you’re a die-hard Flowerbomb fan then this is a lovely one to add to you collection, so I would try and track it down in-store, if you can. It’s available in the 50ml bottle for £78.
