Strap on your helmet and prepare to sample our interpretation of divine new fragrance "Flowerbomb," introduced in early 2005 and sold exclusively in one very high-end department store.
Flowerbomb is the first foray into perfumery by Dutch fashion design team Viktor & Rolf, and they brought very definite ideas to the fragrance table. They were determined that the scent be filled with flowers, flowers, and more flowers (thus the name "Flowerbomb"), and that they wanted it to be "romantic, but volatile" and connote "glamour, but with rage" (thus the bottle that looks like a crystal grenade).
Our most excellent perfumers have fashioned their own version of this top-selling scent, which begins with top notes of bergamot, tea, and peony, leading to an explosive flowery midsection of real jasmine absolute, freesia, orchid, orangeflower, and a kiss of peach, with a warm, sweet drydown of cedarwood, patchouli, amber, leather, musk, and vanilla.
Bottom Line: Dizzingly floral, delightfully upscale -- one whiff and KABOOM!!! you're bathed in an explosion of flowery nirvana.
