Fragrance Friday: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose 2016

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is a major modern fragrance icon, and to call it a success of epic proportions would be putting it SO mildly! Women all over the world absolutely love it, and it is one of the fragrances I hear constantly named as a signature scent by women from all walks of life.
Landing on Monday is Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose, the Northern Hemisphere summer version of Flowerbomb fragrance that comes out every year as a limited edition in a different bottle. That isn’t to say it can’t be worn in the depths of the Southern Hemisphere winter – it has me already dreaming about spring!
The fragrance is a sparkling floral bouquet that has been best described as “opening with accords of bergamot, mandarin, pink pepper, green tea and grapefruit”. The heart is a bouquet of rose, jasmine, lily of the valley, red berries and orchid, laid on the base of amber, cashmere and patchouli. In other words, delicious.
Available as a 50 ml Eau de Toilette, the newest incarnation of the fragrance is a slightly spicier version of the original sweet floral; giving Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf fans an alternative to their favourite scent that I can pretty much guarantee they will love.
It starts off with a refreshing fruity, lightly floral scent, then after a little while the elements of pink pepper settle down into a floral bouquet while the scent of rose rises up on the skin. By the end of the day it has a distinctly woody fragrance on my skin, which I absolutely love.
So to wrap it up, I reckon Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose EDT differs from the original in that it is naturally lighter and less sweet, but still has a true Flowerbomb feel about it at heart. For those that haven’t worn the original but have heard about its intoxicating qualities, I think the spicy, woody after-hit will be a real surprise.
The lighter scent allows Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose eau de toilette to be worn anywhere as well – no chance of flooding the room with your signature scent if you work in a closed office, but plenty of sexy subtlety when people get up close. I love that!

As aforementioned, this beauty is on counter June 20, with an RRP of $143.00 for 50ml. Enjoy.
