You remember that first time you tried Flowerbomb? Well the new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom for Spring 2017 is apparently nothing like it. Flowerbomb, depending how sophisticated your nose is, can be a jarring experience at first mist. I’ve heard people rave it as a cotton candy dream but when I initially tried it, I found it revolting. It’s a lot like Thierry Mugler’s Angel in the fact that it takes a little getting used to. It’s a dark, complex, and unique gourmand.
Over the years, the juice has as been formulated a few different ways but the most memorable and wearable form was Flowerbomb La Vie en Rose. It was so much lighter and delightfully easier to wear compared to the original fragrance. Needless to say I’ve gotten used to Flowerbomb and even love it. Or shall I say I have a love hate relationship with it.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom is a new airy, lightweight version of the original with a “liquid airy note” hmmm…ok! As well as a floral bouquet of notes with juicy pomegranate. And yes, of course the the legendary patchouli and musk is still in the mix.
I’m looking forward to trying this.
Anyone smell it yet?
