Always exercise caution when playing with extravagant explosives. Take it from Blogger Katie of My Lips But Better, as she pulls the pin on one such Flowerbomb in her guest post today.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
Doesn’t the bottle look warm and inviting?

I’m not a big perfume collector, but Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb ($100 for 1.7 fl. oz) was an instant hit with me.


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

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 you’re more observant than I was, you’ll see it’s a tiny pink grenade with diamond-like facets. Who would’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 don’t really care, because it’s true!

Flowerbomb’s available at Sephora and many department stores. Stop by and give it a whiff when you can.

    Thanks Katie. This is one of the prettiest bottles I’ve seen in a long time. I just checked and Sephora has it in smaller sizes, but I want the big one you have. 🙁

    Oh, I’ve been wanting to try this for a while now. Everytime I was in my Sephora store this spring, they were sold out. Maybe I’ll try again with F&F coming soon…..thanks for this review!!

  4. desi says:

    I LOVE Flowerbomb, just wish it wasn’t so expensive.

  5. Christina says:

    I would like to echo the expensive sentiment – but think I’ll take the chance of buying at a discount Fragrance store or the fragrance outlet websites. It’s not much much cheaper but honestly, saving about 20 and getting a big bottle sounds pretty good.

  6. Myr says:

    Is there a particular age range you would give this scent?

  7. mint says:

    it sounds like a great perfume! I have to check it out at the shops next time. 🙂

    This is one of my favourite scents but I don’t own it yet because it is quite pricey. I is definitely on my shopping list.

    I’m not really into flowery perfume but I still bought this because when I sprayed it on myself I smelled like cotton candy!! Hehehe

  15. Harshleen says:

    I just got it last week and no doubt it smells heavenly…….really wish the price tag was on lower side. It’s a great gift option for a special someone!

    Mmm, love this perfume! I want a bottle of it, but I need to really go through a lot of other perfume in my cupboard before getting a new one.

    I have been hearing wonderful reviews about Flowerbomb for so long that I finally bought the big bottle and ended up with a second full sized bottle as a gift. The problem is that this perfume doesn’t work for me at all.
