Doesn’t the bottle look warm and inviting?
Iâ€™m not a big perfume collector, but Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb ($100 for 1.7 fl. oz) was an instant hit with me.
Seems a little strange considering the name, but Flowerbomb is actually less flowery than you might think. When I first spray it on me or in the air, I get some jasmine, freesia, and rose, but very quickly that subsides into creamy vanilla, bergamot, and patchouli. Not the dirty hair patchouli either – just a hint of spicy goodness. The scent is so cozy that I often spritz a bit right before bed to help me relax.
Viktor & Rolf got a little cheeky with this packaging. If youâ€™re more observant than I was, youâ€™ll see itâ€™s a tiny pink grenade with diamond-like facets. Who wouldâ€™ve thought that a tiny pink grenade could carry so much loveliness? It’s a little over the top, but it definitely brings an element of luxury to my dresser.
Is it sad to admit that my beloved Flowerbomb is one of the reasons I’m excited for fall? I donâ€™t really care, because itâ€™s true!
Flowerbomb’s available at Sephora and many department stores. Stop by and give it a whiff when you can.
